I haven't had the nerve to stand on it yet.

I must have it in for myself!

A passport on a dehumidifier can only mean one thing - I washed it. Oops.

They're cute, but my feet were KILLING me by the time we got home!

My parents and us at Atlantic House. As you can tell by my hair, it was a little windy! Ha!

Tonight was the first night in over a month that it's been cool enough to have a roast dinner.

She was probably the most active thing in the flat all day.

Wes and I went to a friendly between the Bohemians FC and Liverpool XI. Liverpool XI is made up of academy and reserve team players. So, no Torres, but it was fun anyway! Plus, it was at a stadium right up the street from our place. The weather was perfect and it didn't start to ran until the very end. Oh, and Liverpool scored the only two goals in the last couple of minutes of the match.

This is what happens when you plan a picnic in Ireland. It becomes weather-dependent.

There was a 'cultural festival' going on in Smithfield. It consisted of strange places where people could do 'street art' and people selling crepes, 'traditional Irish pancakes' (which are crepes), and Chinese food. Oh, and there was a tent with bands.

This is her new favorite spot - under the drying rack next to the new dehumidifier. If she's not on the couch, she's here and she'll yell at you if you come back to see what she's up to. Touchy!

Wes brought home flowers yesterday to cheer me up!

Bad day = coffee and brioche in the afternoon*.

My IKEA purchase! I finally have a nightstand! I'm a little afraid of hitting my head on it...

Wes is admiring the large refrigerator at IKEA.

I was told that the pancake mix was dunzo. Imagine my surprise when I found the container in the cupboard. Was he saving the space for the next container?

I forgot to take my camera out tonight, so here is a lovely artist rendition (off a beer mat) of the pub that we went to. It's a true Irish pub - no music and no TVs - just drinking and good craic!

Wes is cooking me dinner! Aw yeah!!!

Dehumidifier for the bedroom. To say we have a damp problem in there is an understatement.

This light blew out about 4 months ago.* We couldn't figure out how to get the cover off to change it, so we've been using the little light above the sink ever since. Monday night I finally got up there, showed it who was boss, and forced it off with a screwdriver. After a tour of Dublin, I found the bulb at the third store I checked. Ahh...Ireland! It made me miss Target and all it's one stop shopping. And then there was light! Yahoo!

*The light over the stove went about 3 months ago, the kitchen light went while I was in the US in July (this was replaced on Monday night and blew out again tonight), we've had a couple of the living room lights blow, one in the bedroom is gone, and one of the hall lights also went out tonight.

No picture today. Things went crazy with my house in Baltimore, so I ended up driving down there at the last minute. I ran out of the house without my camera and I totally forgot to take a picture when I got home.
