Home Again

We got home late last night and I have been busy unloading the car, unpacking our bags, doing laundry, etc.

Before heading home, we stopped at Trader Joe's in Burien, WA. I LOVE this chain of stores! The service and items carried is consistent from store to store and the service is always exceptional!

We then headed toward home but stopped off at Cle Elum to eat dinner. We decided on Los Cabos Family Mexican Restaurant and Cantina. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! I will definitely visit this restaurant again!

Since I was able to get to the camera today I took a few pictures of my new iPad case. The lighting today isn't very good but I did the best I could. 

I really wanted leather and since I didn't feel like I could splurge on the Book Book at $80 I was super excited when I saw this one for $30 (regular price $48) at the Nordstrom Rack! I wasn't thrilled with Jessica Simpson's name on the front but couldn't squabble with the price.

I love the super soft feel of the leather and the big pocket on the front.

The inside has elastic/leather loops that hold the iPad nice and tight. Another pocket for a small notebook or receipts. Check out the pockets for cards and the heart shaped slot for my granddaughter's picture:)

Then of course, I wanted it to be able to stand up for when I get a wireless keyboard for it.

Tada! My new iPad case has an easel type stand that snaps down snuggly to the back of the case when not in use.

Overall, I am pretty happy with this new case. Now, to see how it wears! But it should last for a couple of years anyway while I continue my search for the PERFECT iPad case.

Well, I am off to finish my laundry and try to get things straightened up here a little bit. I was reading Carla's post for yesterday at My 1/2 Dozen Daily and I am so far from being the Proverbs 31 woman:( So gotta get this place tidied up! I am still on my mission for the 100 Thing Fling Boogie! I think I am at 40 but will "fling" a few more things and get back to you on that!

What is your favorite restaurant for a sit down meal? My hubby really likes Sweet Tomatoes in Clackamas, OR or Vancouver, WA. However, that is an upscale buffet restaurant. Good food but I really like to be served so I would probably choose a nice Mexican restaurant (like last night) or Olive Garden (love their salad and bread sticks).



  1. Welcome home, Kat!! :) I love the new case!! It's awesome! The name isn't so bad... At least it's Jessica Simpson & not snookie.. Haha!! ;)

    Kat, I'm far from being a Proverbs 31 woman as well... But we're all a work in progress right?! :) Hugs!!

    1. Oh yeah! The name could be worse! I have finally learned the love and respect your husband part so maybe there's hope for me yet:) Thanks for visiting, Carla!

  2. Oh, I love Sweet Tomatoes and Olive Garden too! And I love Golden Corral (local buffet style). Nice case, such a pretty color!

  3. We have a few semi-local places we like to eat as well. I have a real thing for the soft brown leather:) I think my new case will match my Keen Bern Baby Bern boots! Thanks for visiting Lena!
