Highs and lows.

At my work's staff meetings we usually share our weekend highs and lows, and that is exactly what I'm going to do for this post.

-Benjamin gave me my birthday present a few weeks early! Hooray! After listening to me complain about my low-quality camera for the past two years, he surprised me with a lovely upgrade. This Nikon Coolpix P500 is my new little friend. 
- I saw Breaking Dawn on Friday night with my pal/geek-out partner in crime, Stacey. All things considered, I loved it. At times it teetered between awesome and awesomely bad (hello, wolf conversation), with a little ridiculousness mixed in, but it definitely met my expectations. I'm trying to get Benjamin to see it with me, which will be a project in and of itself. 

-Dylan continues to become more cute and fun with each day. Here's some proof:

- I found this gorgeous wrapping paper at TJ Maxx:
Hot pink alligator print? Yes, please. 

-I discovered this deliciousness:

Aaaand here's the weekend's low:

-THE NORDSTROM AT UNIVERSITY MALL IS CLOSING. Right after I found out I called the husband. I said to him, "Honey, something terrible happened." He immediately thought that someone had died. When I told him that it was Nordstrom he laughed at me for a long time. He obviously doesn't share my Nordstrom love. The only thing that could make it a little better would be if H&M came and took Nordstrom's empty spot.

I loved Breaking Dawn, too! I agree, the wolf conversation was pretty terrible but in all reality, how could you make that not terrible? that's something that should probably be left to the imagination. Why is Nordstrom closing?
