Three-day weekend minutia.

My three-day weekend, according to my Instagram pictures:


Saturday highlights: I made my first trip to the Southside branch of the Santa Fe Public Library, which was the only one I hadn't yet visited. It is so nice: big, lots of windows, plenty of comfy seating, few visitors and a beautiful children's room. Unfortunately, it's also the farthest out of the way. Of course. I also visited a French cafe at the fashion outlets that a family friend had recommended. The food was too expensive for me ($12 for quiche? I don't think so), but I could afford a pastry and an iced vanilla latte. Yum! I also hit up a couple stores at the outlets to take advantage of the Memorial Day sales. My favorite purchase? A BCBG dress I thought was on sale for $29 but rang up as only $15. Score! Overall, I biked 18 miles to visit all these places. I thought I would be super-sore the next day, but I'm pleasantly still unaffected! Maybe I'm getting my cycling legs.

Sunday highlights: I spent the morning watching Law & Order and working on graduation presents (sorry I'm so late, Mizzou friends!), then I headed down to Albuquerque for a minor-league baseball game in the evening. The Isotopes won, 11-9, and there were fireworks after. I also got a pretty sweet picture with Homer Simpson:

I actually wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons growing up, but now I've met Homer! :)

Monday highlights: Today was reserved for more Law & Order (I'm on season two of the original show) and more graduation-present progress. I also biked down to the Plaza in the afternoon to take some pictures. I really haven't taken many real pictures with my camera in Santa Fe, and I figured a holiday was the perfect opportunity to blend in with all the camera-toting tourists. Check back Wednesday for those pictures; I don't want to make this post too long. :)

How was your Memorial Day weekend? Did you get to celebrate our soldiers with a day off from work today? And, of course, thank you to all the men and women who have served our country, whether in the military or otherwise!

Hahaha, love the picture with Homer Simpson.
I swear, if I was homeless, I would totally live in a library. How much better could life get?

I wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons either! As soon as I was old enough, I was all into it. Sounds like you had a great weekend.

Oh man, we watched The Simpsons ALL the time. My mom looks back and asks herself why they let us watch it. Ha!

Keep Shining,

PS. Your captcha is one - didn't know if you wanted it on or not. ;)

Sounds like a good weekend! I've always thought Homer was a little creepy :)
That croissant looks delicious!
