Checking in!

Hi all! Nothing spectacular going on with us, but wanted to post a quick note since I've had some worried friends wondering why I've not blogged recently. Thanks for being worried. :-)

Brent is feeling better after a bout of the stomach flu paired with a respiratory virus. He missed a day of work and spent the rest of his work week coughing and hacking (much to his co-workers' dismay, I'm sure), but is doing much better now. The kids are finally over their colds, and Graham is finishing up another round of antibiotics for his ear infections.

Since there's nothing much else to report on, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into my shallow side and talk about shopping. (Men, you're welcome to continue reading, but I assure you that you won't "get" it...) Ladies, have you ever walked into a store and the heavens opened up and choirs sang? I FOUND THAT STORE, and seriously...it's THAT good. Its name is "Trios" and it's located at 21st & Rock here in Wichita. I'd never been in before, but had walked by their storefront many times. It's a small boutique-y shop that doesn't allow strollers, so....well....you know how that works with my lifestyle. I had a few minutes to kill (sans children) before I had to get home to relieve the babysitter, and hopped in to see if the inside of the store was as fabulous as the storefront. IT WAS. It's full of gorgeous silver platters and serving dishes, linen towels, Vera Bradley bags, adorable boutique children's items, and a few pieces of glassware/crystal. I've been looking for a footed pedestal cake server with a tall dome (tall enough to cover a frosted layer cake), and they had one there that was exactly what I've been looking for! Except that it was $435... (Needless to say, Trios still owns that cake plate.) I didn't buy a thing, but can't wait for my next chance to browse. If you're ever in need of a shopping date, give me a call and I'll take you there!

Happy Friday everyone!!
