Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Four wonderful days off have unfortunately come to an end. It's amazing how quickly time passes by when you are off. Luckily I have only four more days at work before I'm have another four days of vacation—I could get used to this schedule.

Stopped by the Bronx Zoo on Friday. I hadn't been back for almost ten years, and I had forgotten how much I love that place. Of course, bringing Cami made it extra special. She was so good the whole day. No crying, tantrums or whimpering, but as always when we are out, no napping either. She was absolutely fascinated by the gorillas, and I have to admit so was I. It's so amazing being up close and personal with them. They look so human!

Mixed work and fun this weekend. My handy husband and stepdad almost finished putting up the new fence—hopefully this will give Cami some space to roam around without us watching her every step. (Having the parents here helping out for a few weeks is making is so much easier to get things done! ) Have been trying to finish her swingset, and if I could now just find that new swing it would be all done.

Got some design gratification too today—I installed the the new totally delicious purply pink Bumling light. It looks like a perfect gumball over my dining room table.

Of course, I have still not decided on fabrics for the upholstery of our vintage bamboo armchairs, but I zeroed in on a site called that have really cool mid century fabrics. If I could only make up my mind so my living room would have finished chairs before the holidays, I would be a happy camper.
