A Few Things

September 3, 2010

I think this is going to be a great weekend. Ben Blair and I have tickets to see Vampire Weekend at Red Rocks tonight. So excited! Although it’s our first time leaving Baby June, so I’m also a little nervous… Tomorrow, we have plans to take the kids to Rocky Mountain National Park (Man. I love National Parks!). On Monday, we’re hoping to tackle some projects around the house. What about you? Anything interesting planned for the long Labor Day weekend?

While I make a list of potential projects for Monday, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you:

-Still warm enough for popsicles.
-Great pieces in the BlogHer/Kirtsy art auction.
-I wish I could attend Jordan & Paul’s Cake Show.
-It’s National Sewing Month! Katy is celebrating all month long.
-This neat family threw a summer ball.
-Wow! 75% off at Kayce Hughes through midnight tonight.
-A cherry party.
-Donate $1 and save the world.
-This image by Chelsea feels so romantic.
-What a cool vintage knapsack.
-Let’s rent this house.
-Neon and wildflowers.
-Don’t forget! My Julian & Co giveaway is still open.

I write a daily post for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here are this week’s posts:
-The coolest playmat ever!
-Luxe iPad covers
-A gorgeous robe
-Handmade batik tees
-Onesies that benefit children’s charities

Happy Labor Day! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I miss you already!

We have the Zoku popsicle maker and it’s fabulous. You can pump out six popsicles in less than fifteen minutes (perfect for you!).

Have fun at RMNP! It’s my favorite park. Stop by the Trailridge store and say hello to my co-workers. Buy the kids some of their chocolate milk. It’s from a local dairy and oh my heavens. It’s the best chocolate milk I’ve ever tasted. Plus it’s super cheap. Ridiculously so. (I also highly recommend the coleslaw. And they make a mean chai tea latte if it’s chilly! Wait, isn’t it always chilly up there?)

I think I need one of those popsicle makers. Maybe for next summer? And I can’t wait to show my hubby that house. He is a design junkie who majored in architecture and then got s job working in software. He loves stuff like that.

We just saw Vampire Weekend this last week in Portland – they are so good live! You’ll have tons of fun!!

Those Popsicles look yummy, perfect as it is really warming up here in Oz now that it is Spring. It seemed that the weather was on cue – as soon as it was September 1 we had 82 degree day!

The Cake Exhibition looks like it will be amazing. I really want one of the paintings! Will have to see if there are any left after the opening and if they can ship to Australia.

I know sewing is not on your top 10 list of enjoyable activities, and perhaps it’s even on your bottom 10 list, but thank you for mentioning my month long Sewing Celebration anyway!

16 Kathleen September 4, 2010 at 12:55 pm

We just returned from Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks! We love National Parks, too!

No long weekend here. .. just wishing for more sunshine and warm weather. I have challenged myself to a week with no denim though… since I seem to wear it a bit. See the first day here.

Oh, you MUST let me know what you thought of the concert. I love Vampire Weekend!
