Teeny Tiny Cons Part III

Last Thursday, The Swede and I went out to celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary! We ate a ten-course meal at an amazing restaurant thanks to a generous gift card from Kate and Scott, and stayed the night at the Hilton. We had taken Friday off of work, so we had time to kill in the morning and decided to take a walk through Gamla Stan, the oldest neighborhood in Stockholm. When we went past the royal palace, who should we see, but a chain gang in HOT PINK! This was my favorite of all the Teeny Tiny Cons I've seen in Sweden so far.

Bigger Kid Bike

Jambo is almost six, super tall, and in the market for a bigger bike this season. All we have to wait for now is the gravel to be swept from the roads in our neighborhood and a paycheck.

While I Was Gone

It's March! You haven't heard from me in March, have you? I looked through my phone to see what in the world we've been up to for the past couple of weeks and, aside from last week when Jambo and I were sick, this is what I came up with:
We went to see The Lego Batman Movie and jazzed up our usual pre-movie selfie with a fun filter.
 The Swede took Jamie ice-fishing and he was a total pro, on top of which he acutally liked it.
Erin and I proved how *NSync we are when she texted me about a nail polish color she wanted to buy when we went out shopping later that day and I texted her back a picture of me wearing that exact color at that very moment.
Jamie and I started building a fort but didn't get far.
I drove through our old 'hood late at night and rolled down the window to take a shot of the beautiful church that used to be our neighbor. My kind of drive-by: photographing churches without interrupting traffic.
I discovered the most magical ice cream flavor during one of my frequent window-shopping sessions at the grocery store freezer. I took the picture to remember for the next time I throw caution to the wind and eat what I want.

So those are the small things. Here are the big: work is busy, spring is on the way, I'm in love with my husband, my kid is awesome, life is good.
