I think the whole Boyboo thing was a good kick in the pants to take some action in the nursery-planning arena.  (Of course, Seth would much rather I devote time to finding places for all the papers that are covering every square inch of the nursery-room floor, but I’ll get to that eventually!)  I had a wonderful day yesterday cruising “The Pike” (as in Rockville Pike or MD 355) hitting up all the baby stores.  I had a classic Moore family experience of finding the absolute perfect bedding amidst the cast-offs in a somewhat sketchy store, but the great bargain aspect of it only makes it better!!  I decided to go ahead and buy the bedding set and bring it home to show Seth and it was a winner all around.  So then we could determine that we did indeed want a wood finish crib after all (the original bedding I’d picked out–which was not quite masculine enough for Baboo–would have looked faboo with a black-painted crib.  I then had an intermediate plan that would have featured a white-painted crib, but alas, we’re sticking with the conventional Chestnut finish.)

So after church today, we cruised back over to the Pike and placed an order for the crib and dresser.  I’m pretty pleased that we took care of this all in about a 24-hour span!  (I also picked out carpet samples yesterday and we made a decision about what we’re going to use to recarpet the downstairs so it was seriously a productive weekend!)   After doing the furniture ordering, we hunted down Bob’s Noodle 66, which is a Taiwanese restaurant that has been on Washingtonian magazine’s Cheap Eats list for several years.  I hang the list on the fridge every year so I can try to go to new places and check them off so I was very excited to take care of another one!!  Cheap eats it was– Seth and I both had noodle dishes and an authentic Bubble Tea (not that it was called that) for $15!!  And we probably have 3 servings of leftovers in the fridge!!  To complete our adventure, we went to the Penzey’s store that recently opened as the first in Maryland.  Many of you have heard me sing the praises of Penzey’s spices (or seen my special collection that I keep in the hall closet) so it was very cool to walk around and smell all the spices rather than simply ordering them from a catalog.  We came home with a few new treats so I’ll have to find some good recipes to try them out!!

Ah, the Pike.   Such good times.  (AKH– we realized we have so many Rockville memories of/with you!!  Wish you could have been with us!!)
