wow, has it really been almost a week since my last post?  well, ya – suck it bitches… i’ve been out of commission a bit… just deal! 🙂

cb and i had a killer random saturday….  first we hit up some vintage 50’s – 70’s antique shops in st paul…. this is a treasure was not to be missed:

(it lights up too!)

for all the eames chairs and vintage china – you gotta love kitsch like this…  wow, it really has everything – it’s a shrine! it’s natural! it’s synthetic! it’s pink!  it’s jesus surrounded by shells and schlock.  awesome!

then we hit up a mall to kill time at the apple store before a movie.  after the apple, there was a quick visit to brookstone where cb got his gallop on:

(i swear the boy can’t pass up an igallop without testing his thigh muscles on it)

after that, we took in lars and the real girl.  words really can’t come close to how much i love this movie.  it’s quiet and smart and small and grand.  quite possibly one of the most genuinely ‘real’ movies i’ve seen in a long long time.  ryan gosling (my future husband) gives a beautiful, understated performance.  emily mortimer, paul schneider (cb’s future husband) and patricia clarkson round out the supurb cast.  this movie touched me in a way that hasn’t happened in a long time. 

after that we hit up innuendo and camp for a couple of beers.  innuendo is a local dive-y gay bar (featuring one of the worst drag show’s i’ve ever seen), whilst camp is just a good (gay) place to people watch while having a great cocktail.

just for fun – my future husband:

nice f’ing day.
