{I heart dates with Zack}

Zack and I had an amazing day yesterday. We left the apartment around 1 pm and came home close to nearly 8 pm! Yeow. I don't remember the last time I spent a Saturday away from my sewing machine. And, there were only like 3 times I thought about sewing.

Taking the day off from work was so needed! We have hardly spent an entire day together since, well, for sure since Blissdom (early February!). We went to lunch at Buca di Beppo {score! we had a coupon}, shopped the mall with some gift cards -- I finally picked up a copy of
Julie & Julia {so excited to read this}.

See that arm? That is Zack, trying to give me bunny ears. Sigh... ;) And no, we are not wearing matching-colored shirts. No way.

Zack twisted my arm a half-turn and we ended up at a sporting goods store. He browsed nearly every department {and I played around in nearly every department...} and then we ended up in the camping section. I saw all sorts of silly things, like portable toilets that look like laundry hampers and yucky dry camping food {scrambled eggs and bacon? ewww}. I told him we could go camping but I will be taking a shower. I'll let you know if we go/if I shower, hah!

And you know where we headed next: Target! Needed to snag a few essentials. We checked-out, loaded the car, then realized we missed a huge essential: food! So back inside we went. Hah!

I know Zack didn't like this as much as I did, but we were able to put away some wintery decorations. Then I organized my candle cabinet. And I did some spring cleaning in my office. And this is probably the most boring Gussy update...?

But don't lose all hope for me! Today I'll be spending a few hours sewing. I've got a few new baby blankets to photograph + list, too. I'm working on stocking a recently-shown Gussy item. I hear Apple is coming out with a new product soon. Hmm... Anyone buying one?

I can't believe today is Sunday. My days feel all mixed-up recently. However... The forecast shows blue skies through Thursday. This girl is HAPPY!

Yesterday was just so amazing. I love feeling like I felt when Zack and I first met. I'm so blessed that we're so in love. We talked about where to go for our second anniversary today and it just gives me butterflies thinking about it. We know love is a choice -- but it's also a commitment we made June 2008. I hope there are people in life that give you butterflies :]

So, what are you doing today?
{woo hoo! there's still a day left of the weekend!}

My hubby and I are spending the first whole day together in a long long time also. He's coming to my regular Sunday morning babysitting job with me and then we're going to the hatsume (Japanese) festival together...then home for dinner and relaxing! This December is our 2nd anniversary and our goal is to move into a new that gives me butterflies.

I am so happy to hear that you had a wonderful day with Zack, I am sure that you both deserved it! You look too cute in that pic, love it! It snowed like crazy here in Missouri last night, we woke up to about 8 or so inches on the ground...I can't wait until next weekend when Gabe and I get time away together...alone! Have a wonderful Sunday Maggie!

Woohoo! Looks like Gussy + Zack had a *great* time. I loved all your tweeted pictures from the sporting goods store yesterday. :)

My weekend? Friday night I had a meeting to go to, and them my sister and I got Starbucks on the way home. Saturday, I went on a "date" with my dad and {a different} sister - to the Apple store and to get Godiva truffles! I felt so spoiled. :D

Happy Sunday, Gussy!

It's been raining a lot - so, stuck inside.... but I've been baking up a storm!

You should definitely go camping together!! Such a great bonding experience :] Obviously I don't know you, but you seem like you'd be a swell camper!

I love having some time with my hubby!!! That is funny about Target and having to go back in for food!! ;) So sounds like something I would do. Have fun planning your anniversary with your hubby! I am sure that whatever you do you will have fun! I can't wait to see what you are adding to your shop!! Talk to you later!!

Days like that are very sweet. And when you get to have them so rarely, that makes them even sweeter. Totally unrelated: please tell us about the mysterious little tattoo on your forearm. I know that must be an excellent story!

Funny you mentioned the iPad. I THINK (and hope, of course) that my hubby may be buying me one. I immediately thought I might need a special Gussy bag. I'll definitely be in touch if that happens :)
