So my in-laws have taken off for Vegas until Friday. It has been awesome having them here but it's nice to have the house quiet again (for a few days)!

We walked over to Little Italy on Sunday and cruised through the Festa. In a word, it was awesome. An entire block was covered in chalk drawings similar to this one:

There were lots of stalls selling wares. I picked up a ridiculously beautiful bread board from A-Skewed Creations for a Christmas present. I was thoroughly heartened that for every McCain/Palin button I saw, there were 20 Obama/Biden buttons. Woo hoo!

We spent time at the beach in the afternoon but the extremely high winds made it a wee bit uncomfortable. Let's just say I'm still getting sand out of places where exfoliation isn't needed.

I was a very bad wifey and went shopping this afternoon. I popped into J.Crew and found the madras halter dress that I've wanted all summer long. I also picked up a royal blue silk blouse, a black pink-tucked turtleneck, a great western-y brown, distressed belt, a tortoiseshell hairtie, and a bunch of their incredible bangles. I've collected every size of the bangles in black, saffron, and the gold-plate. They look fantastic when I want to display my Vandy spirit.

SPEAKING OF - MY GOD, VANDY - WHY MUST YOU ***ALWAYS*** LET ME DOWN? ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stocked up on bananas this weekend so I'm going to go throw together a loaf of banana-coconut bread before bed. Hope all is well with all you bloggy ladies!
