Home, Home on the Wange

I just came across a poster for a plush food show for last weekend in Los Angeles. Can you believe how specialized a niche that is? It would have been so much fun to see the cuteness, but it's just as well I missed it. I would have spent all our money and then how would we pay for the house we just found?

House? Yep, we've been mighty busy these last days. First we found out that Swimmy is a boy, and then we made an offer on a house and it was accepted! If all the inspections go well, we'll be in the new place before the holidays. We're a bit in shock, but very excited.

The school district is excellent and teacher Momma to LG vouched for the local elementary school. The neighborhood looks very well cared-for, with sidewalks for comfortable strolls. We're thrilled at how much more space we'll have for Swimmy and out-of-town guests. With the exception of some unfortunate early-eighties foil wallpaper in the downstairs bathroom, the house is ready for a move-in.

I don't want to say a lot more yet because I'm afraid of jinxing the deal, so I'll close with some more plush. The apple and corn are by an artist named Anna Chambers and the Pirate Vegetables are by artist Kate Sutton.

P.S. Post title from Q's favorite new song.

P.P.S. I had to add one more picture. Look at what they have a Krispy Kreme: Cute non-plush food!

Yay! Congrats! So many exciting developments at once! Please let us know if we can do anything to help during the move. There will be 4 kids aged 3 and under staying at our place for the holidays so Q is welcome to join in the madness!

PS - I am going STRAIGHT to Krispy Kreme from the airport when we get back. I am a sucker for cute food.

I did not need to see that Krispy Kreme picture! (Still feeling bloated from T-day.)

Congratulations on the house! Hope it all works out. What an exciting Christmas present. Definitely better than a robe.

Those stuffed fruits are adorable! That is so you...

And congratulations on the house. That is big news - real estate is always so difficult.
