We went to an amazing estate sale today.... I had a feeling about this one. It was run by the one REALLY GOOD estate sale company in the city (there are many "eh" companies..) and it was in a fancy dancy part of the city along Lake Michigan where people have personal assistants and more than one nanny.
I was like a kid in a candy store surrounded by Coach and Kate Spade bags, jewelery, amazing furniture and other stuff. We didn't show up until noon and it started at ten. I can't imagine what was there in the beginning of the day. We found treasures... a brand new igloo circle cooler with a spout that will be perfect for sangria on the deck, a pair of silver and amethyst earrings, a fancy flat iron, a big tin bucket thing (bigger than the norm) that will be perfect to fill with ice and bottles adult beverages or soda when we have gatherings, and Mic found a pristine radio flyer wagon with the high wood sides. It had one streamer stuck on with a piece of tape from the last parade it probably was in. She was stoked! It made me happy to see her happy about a kid thing. Being lame-o-me I was all "oohhh.. this is our first thing we are buying for the hopefully kid that will hopefully be coming into our lives if we hopefully get accepted...I am getting verklempt". I maybe should have left that last part off.
I hope we just didn't jinx things.
I can't return it!!!!!
We had a fantastic weekend with friends celebrating a birthday, a visit with mic's mom and dad, and a 3 hour nap. YUM. Not to mention wonderful news of one of our very good friends making the Milwaukee County Mounted Police. Hehehe. Mounted.
I have a wonderful wiff waiting for me upstairs in bed.
I hope everyone is well.. .
