Hello! The Coleman family had a FABULOUS Saturday morning, how about you?
I’ve been laying around the house for the past few days trying not to have a baby and was in desperate need of leaving to do something cool. You may be wondering why in the world I’m trying NOT to have a baby this close to my due date, and the sad-but-true answer is that I am so type A, and SUCH a planner, that I want to have the baby on the day I have planned to have the baby. Wednesday morning at 11:15am my baby will join the world, and I hope she’s happy to stay put until then.
So anyway…this morning we started the day with a late breakfast at King’s Chef Diner.
This place is Jeremy’s absolute favorite. They specialize in making the world’s largest (possible exaggeration) breakfast plates, topped of with green chili that is made in-house. The chili is so good that it’s sold at Whole Foods stores, and is well worth the $7 per jar price tag. The whole family had happy empty plates at the end of our breakfast.
And then we were off to do some shopping for a birthday party Austin’s going to this afternoon!
Austin was very excited, because downtown + birthday party = POOR RICHARDS!
Yes, I just put a picture of myself on the internet at 9 months, baby due any second, pregnant with no make up on. That. Just. Happened.
Poor Richards sells the best stuff in the world. It’s a locally owned store that has a 4 stores in one theme; used bookstore/awesome random items, coffee shop/wine bar, amazing toy store, hippy pizza place. If you visit Colorado Springs, go here!
The toy store is totally incredible, and stores a ton of things I had growing up.
They have a puppet section:
Where you can buy this funny guy:
and a dress up section among the many other cool things.
We left with an ant farm. A hopeful hit for a 5 year old.
And remember these wise words sprayed onto a local business downtown:
