Weekend In Photos: Staying Out Edition

We had our first showing on Saturday. And that person is interested. I'm not going to hold my breath, but woohoo! And then we had an Open House on Sunday. I had to come up with things to do outside of our house all weekend. The plans were worthy, but the weather was frigid. In the end, we ate/drank (indoors), looked at books (indoors), shopped (indoors).

At our favorite Mexican restaurant. Good Mexican food is rare around here. Looking forward to lots of choices in LA.
I'm not above bribing the kids with presents to buy myself some goodwill and love.
Michael's on Saturday afternoon. Uhm, the kids were not excited. But I did get a Slice Hands-Free Mat at 50% off. So I was excited.
Anthro: coat too big, kids too cranky. I had to get out of there quick, or defenestration might have occurred. If there had been a window.
Next day: more food. Malaysian food in Chinatown. Yes, my kids do know how to use chopsticks. What kind of Taiwanese mother do you take me for?
We had to forgo walking around town looking at sculptures because of the cold. We settled for some Chinese pastries instead. Not as educational, but so much tastier.
Yes, more eating/drinking. This time at Barnes & Noble for some hot chocolate and mags.
And finally home, where my oldest decided to reveal that he indeed had some homework due early Monday. But decided to wait til late Sunday to tackle it. Nice. Note the sheepish look on his face.

And that, my friends, was my exciting weekend. Go us!

I'll be back tomorrow with two winners. Go you!

You have a slice? So do I. But I haven't used mine in... forEVER.

I can't believe your kids can use chopsticks. I can't. *hanging head in shame*
But my non-Chinese husband has taught youngest how to use them. *sigh*

Thanks for blogging instead of sleeping. <3
And good luck with the house selling! :D
