I ordered something this weekend that I am anxiously awaiting the delivery of today...
soap! 
You probably think I'm a total dork (and I'm okay with it) but living in 700 square feet, we don't exactly have space to buy (and store) things in bulk...and I LOVE to stockpile things we always need. 
(there is nothing worse than getting to the end of the roll of toilet paper, only to remember it was THE last roll!)
The new house has a ton of storage and I got the green light to slowly start building up our stockpile of necessities!
I found an awesome deal on my favorite soap at none other than soap.com. So I ordered 3 refill packs (which you can't find in the stores) of the only scent I ever use, Basil (have you smelled it?!).
I won't think it's weird if you bring a Costco-sized pack of toilet paper as a house warming gift, I will love you all the more!
Don't judge...I know I'm crazy.

Anyways, onto the weekend...

B loves stickers and the checker at Trader Joes gave him a bunch of stickers, all of which he proceded to put on his shirt at once. He was so proud of himself!
(check out the bruises on his forehead...new shoes + trying to perfect running = not a good idea.)
For date night friday, Chris and I went to Laurelhurst Market.
It was our first time (we had to put our 'meat pants' on) and it was amazing!
Here is me in my new dress:
(that you can only see the top of)
and I ordered the burger. 
It was simply amazing.
Seriously one of the best burgers I've ever had.
and here is the handsome hubby:
Neither of us are steak eaters, but he ordered the Steak Frites since Lauren raved about them.
She was right, they were amazing! 
We are one of those annoying couples who trades meals halfway.
Best of both worlds.
Saturday morning B and I took Chris out for an early Father's Day breakfast at Tasty 'n Sons.
It was super good, as always.

After breakfast we went to Andy and Bax which is a quirky little army surplus store.
It was kind of funny seeing all of the weird things they had, and Bennett loved trying on the hats: 
On Sunday, we went over to Chris' parent's house to celebrate Father's day.
They just got two adorable kittens, Dixie and Bert. 
B loved to chase them when they weren't sleeping.
I wish all animals could stay cute and small!

Happy first day of summer!

    Both Laurelhurst and Tasty are on my list of places to go! Can't wait. And where was the review of the blogger meet-up?? I was waiting for some pics or stories on that! :)

    I have heard really great reviews on Laurelhurst Market and I literally drive by it every day and think, "we should go there." But, we still haven't done that. Jeremy is always up for a good burger though so he will definitely be sold.
