It all started with my Anthropologie catalog, stuffed with beautiful curtains, pillows, and candle holders I could never afford. It even had the most beautiful silk quilt, for a mere $280! Knowing that there had to be either a) some pre-owned ones on Ebay, or b) some cheap knockoffs that were just as cute, I set out on a mission to find stuff for my house. The Goal- don’t spend more than $2 on any piece, and end up with an eclectic collection of really cool house stuff. It was all inspired by the Happy Panda toaster over at FootNotes. I haven’t found anything bid-worthy just yet, but I have not given up hope! If you happen to come across any camel-shaped salt and pepper shakers on e-bay, or something equally loveable that you know I would want, let me know!

I haven’t mentioned my fish lately, which is a shame, because they’re all so darn cute! I’m excited that Figment (the original) is back in the Journey into Imagination ride at Epcot, so they will now have lots of Figment merchandise, and I can bring back a little stuffed Figment (the dragon) to sit on top of Figment (the fish)’s tank. Hooray!

I just realized that I left out one of the most amusing parts of our ill-fated trail ride. While Becka was laying in the hospital bed, after the doctor told her she should stay off her leg as much as possible for about a week, and then be on crutches for a while, she looked up at us, and with complete sincerity said “I think I might not be able to ride on Sunday.” True to form.

I was just driving home and singing along to “Goodbye to You”, and started crying. Maybe I’m not as over it all as I’d like to think. I’m getting there, though.

"Its hard to want everything and nothing at the same time

I want what’s yours and I want what’s mine

I want you, but I’m not giving in this time

Goodbye to you

Goodbye to everything I thought I knew

You were the one I loved

The one thing that I tried to hold on to

Goodbye to you."
