Tonight in the car

Husband: "Did you know the old 49th street Galleria is for sale?"
Me: "ummmm"
Husband:" If I were rich I would buy it. I would buy it and make it our house"
Me: wrinkled my nose "I'm glad your not rich then.."

The Park After Dark

We spent our 24th of July at the Park Cafe with our lovely friends. There was BBQ and fireworks across the street at Liberty Park. Somehow 99% of the photos that I snapped were of Max and Emory (my friend Monica's niece) but when I look at them they are both so cute that I can see why I took so many!

Squirrel homicide

Today started out lovely: walked my dogs, lunch with Max and my baby brother and then it happened on our way to the zoo there was a big squirrel in the road and I swerved to miss him and he ran and I hit him. I feel awful. There is a pit in my stomach. I cried the rest of the way to the zoo, I told the squirrels at the zoo that I was so sorry and vowed to put a bird/ squirrel feeder in my yard. I called my hubby and told him I was a murderer and he said that it was probably just accidental manslaughter- or rodentslaughter. I'm kidding but I really feel terrible. I just hope it was quick and that it was an old squirrel and had led a full rodent life.

Monica's Flirty 30 party part 2 aka Max's 1st concert

Just a couple of Max at the Kings of Leon concert. He was so cute! I wish all of my photos from my camera wouldn't have been deleted. However the night was well documented the pics were not what I would call blog worthy. Max sang along, danced with Monica, and overall was just fun to be with!

Monica's Flirty 30 Tiffany blue party part 1

Yesterday was the lovely Monica Choi's Birthday and we had a tiffany themed birthday for her. My hubby took care of finding some recipes for blue drinks and he manned the bar! Max took to the loud speaker (we held the party at the park cafe) he was singing to passers by! I took care of the cake, cookies, flowers, and candy. Her cute nieces Randi and Jazmyn did the decorations and got a hummer limo (It was dippy but actually super fun- Max was so impressed) We went from the Park Cafe to the Kings of Leon concert. Happy birthday Mon!

Max and Cody (my brother) were on the news last week. Max now thinks he is famous. We have watched the video over and over again. It was a quiz about the Constitution- Cody got all his answers right!

Mad Men

It's late and I'm so exhausted that I can't sleep. So instead of resting for another crazy day tomorrow I'm searching the Internet for images that inspire me and "mad men-ing" myself at I guess I'm super boring because all I want to blog about is food, booze and TV but I swear as soon as work calms down I'm going to start being a super interesting person! Anyway there is not a show that I find more aesthetically pleasing than mad men. Even the dumpy characters are well put together ( Peggy) and Betty and Joan epitomize everything sexy they have the Jackie/ Marilyn dynamic down. Also is it just me or can we all agree that 50's-60's clothes were FAR more flattering to a woman's body. High waist lines, full skirts and well placed darts in clothing make a world of difference!

I love bunnies - don't you?

Henry and I have really tried to cut all products that test on animals out of our lives. Thank all that is good in the world that la mer doesn't! Practices such as squirting it in their little eyes, pumping products in their little bodies or forcing them to inhale sprays are just some of the things poor little bunnies have inflicted upon them! In our scientifically advanced world these tests are unnecessary for cosmetics. I know this is not an issue everyone supports and I would never want to seem like I was forcing my ideas on others BUT if you could buy cruelty free then why wouldn't you?

I die!!!

SO exited for August 3rd!!! The Rachel Zoe project is back sans Taylor and I hope that means more Brad!!! It's scary how much Bravo TV I watch. It's almost the only channel I watch (don't judge me I swear I'm listening to NPR in my car and not "she and him" radio on Pandora) actually, I don't care judge me if you must I rather enjoy spending my time with trashy housewives and Andy Cohen.

Saturday Farmers Market

Every summer Saturday in Pioneer park they have a small but busy farmers market. I love going and have only missed one so far this summer ( don't fret for me hubby was able to go that Sat so I still had tomato's and fluffy lovely peonies that week!) I love the atmosphere and all the fresh food. The kid playing the piano was amazing! He attached that piano to his bike and rides it down. If you haven't been you should go this Saturday and I will see you there!

Summer Max

I haven't been taking as many pictures as I should this summer but I did snap a few of him lounging in Ben and Carlee's hammock. I think it's the perfect image of summer.

banana cream pie dinner

There is nothing like working a total of 32 hours by Wednesday on your feet to make you appreciate the simple things like: a full night of sleep, a back rub and pie for dinner. I plan to do all three tonight (hopefully hubby will comply with the back rub)

Tisket a tasket...

My new Kate Spade bike basket! I just think it is too sweet! They are sold out online however I called my salesgirl and she found one to send to me! It's a little impractical and a tad overpriced but trust me I earned a little indulgence- I worked open to close yesterday and have to again today- oh and on Wednesday too! Then I suppose on Thursday I will go shopping for a bike suitable for my lovely basket!

I like these but-

I can't remember where I found them. I like seeing lyrics you are so familiar with printed on posters. I like the simple images and I like the colors they are printed on.
