Fave #1. Sleeping in. I got to sleep till 9am for the past 2 days. Lydia was on a trip with her grandparents. (more on that later…)
Fave #2. Antiquing. Yancy & I walked through a historic downtown and looked through antique shops. I love the smell of old stuff. I saw some amazing old opera glasses, beautiful furniture and even some vintage buttons. I just love thinking about the stories behind all the items. I didn’t even buy anything I just like to look. And I should do it more often!
Fave #3. Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies. These are to die for. Today I bought 4 from my one of my favorite restaurants. I only ate one (so far).
Fave #4. New Books. I went to the bookstore today to look for a specific book. As the clerk was looking it up, I noticed a sign for a book signing by Elizabeth Musser. I said, “Oh, is she going to be here?” And she said, “Oh, she was here today.” I said, “Oh, really?” She said, “Oh yeah, you just missed her. She left 30 minutes ago.” I said, “Oh, man!” (And you wonder why this blog is called oh amanda!) Anyway, Elizabeth Musser is one of my favorite authors because her stories are always set in Atlanta. And one of the characters in The Swan House had my same full (maiden) name. I’ve always wanted to talk to her about why she chose that name. I did get a signed copy of her new book at least. I can’t wait to read it!
Fave #5. Good Friends. Yancy and I had fun today..sleeping late, eating cookies, shopping and just hanging out. I haven’t done that in forever.
Fave #6. Lydia. She was gone for 2 whole nights. When my parents dropped her off, she started crying, which made me a little sad. But she didn’t leave my arms the rest of the night! I missed my little girl and loved snuggling her tonight!
