Yesterday, Mark took me out to brunch and then to the National Museum. I'd never been and I totally nerded out over their collection! Old Norse jewelry, 18th century interiors, a whole wing of dollhouses, everyday emphera and folk art. One of my favourites was the medieval wedding rings, they traditionally had two hands holding each other or a heart. So cute! They also have an impressive ancient Egyptian and Greek art collection as well. I just love old stuff. There are a ton more photos here and if you are in the area I'd definitely recommend a visit. Mark also made me an amazing dinner - bean and fennel muffins, deconstructed lasagne and panna cotta with honey and orange. Did I mention I have the best husband to be?
I was a bit sad to miss the Oscars last night (I wanted to make these) but spent some time catching up this morning and am really pleased with the winners! I have to agree with everyone that Cate Blanchett's dress was the best but I also liked Michelle William's and surprisingly Mandy Moore's outfits. I'm not quite sure why I like the Oscars as much as I do but I just do. Doesn't take much to make me happy, I guess.
