Beacon Hill Festival

It took longer than we thought to put a coat of paint on the baby's room, so we barely made it to the Beacon Hill Festival before it closed.

The silent auction was pretty quiet.

The gym was livelier, with the last dance performance of the day, by the Jefferson Community Center Breakdancers.

Outside they were serving burgers.

So I got one.

Rosso Nursery had a stand there.

Someone bought some Ceanothus from them, as I did a couple years back.

Coincidentally, we're painting the baby's room a similar color to this. We're having a girl, and we chose blue for her room. Not to be contrary or anything -- I just couldn't imagine hanging out in a pink, yellow, or green room. Plus, I think the cool blue will look great next to the orange-ish oak floor.

Does this seem harsh or reasonable? I can't decide.

After the festival, we went looking for a new dresser. Me looking pregnant at Chartreuse.

And at Inform.

We didn't find a dresser. But we did finish the last coat of paint in the room.

We also had an unsuccessful dresser search this weekend. You look great, though!

It was nice to see a few faces from Georgetown in your photos! I noticed Bruce was there with Ivy and her friends!

That looks like the color we painted my daughter's old room at our Beacon Hill place. It looked wonderful against the orange-ish color of the old fir floors. (Her room in Ballard is pink with black trim. Her choice, but I miss the blue.)

It's a perfect blue for a little girl. And nice and soothing to exhausted parental eyes in the middle of the night, too.

"The silent auction was pretty quiet."

It could be the whisky and ginger ale, but this made me laugh really hard.

(Blogger thinks "whisky" is misspelled, but it's not.)

Also, it's not necessarily harsh or unreasonable to tell people to stop swearing in public, especially at a community center.

But it is at a bar.

Thanks, Rebjones! That's really sweet of you to say.

Oh, you meant JvA. I see.
