Shhhh...time for bed...

Speaking of kids books....this one would make an inappropriate thoughtful gift for new parents...
Behold, an excerpt:
The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep.

Don't get your panties in a bunch over a little F-bomb, I promise not to make blogswears a habit (although they are kinda fun from time to time, right?). 

Buy your copy here. 

We Heart Madeline

 Thank you KK for introducing the kids to (and reminding us of) Madeline.  I adore the illustrations and the story, as do the babes!  Merci.

Biiiiirthday Boy

Happy Birthday Bobby!  We can't wait to celebrate!  xoxo

I'm a pretty big deal.  I have a friend, who has a sister, who has a friend (with a blog) who has a sister, who has a friend (with a blog) and that girl (the friend of the sister of my friend's sister's friend) is the new face of Kate Spade Bicycle.  How cool am I is that?

Watch this video...gorgeous.  Makes me want a new bike, a cupcake, fancy shoes, a polka dot dress, and that song playing in my ears all day long...

Happy Bday (a day late)

2 babies and totally fabulous - happy birthday mama!

Portland Must See and Do List

Auntie KK snapped this photo from the plane as she flew into PDX last Friday night.  Wowza!  
Speaking of PDX friend's friend is coming in August and they have asked me to suggest a top 5-ish list of must dos.  It will be hard to keep it to lets not limit ourselves, please chime in with comments to let me (them) know what I missed! 

1. Rose Garden on a clear august day will be pretty sweet, while you are there you'd be silly not to also hit up the Japanese garden
2. Cruise NW 23rd street - great local shops and food
3. Hit up some food carts for some local flavor
4. Voodoo, you just have to do it, right?
5. Church, aka the Farmer's Market, duh.  I prefer the Saturday morning market (biggest, best, closest to my house and fits my schedule well), but any of them are great...there is one every day
6. Road Trips! Portland rules, but while in the area you should also go to Multnomah Falls, Hood River, Mount Hood and the coast...all are within 90 minutes from here...the first 3 can all be done in one big loop from the city.

Pine State Biscuits

On our way to the airport yesterday (for a sad drop off of kk- boo), we stopped at Pine State Biscuits for a yummy taste of PDX's finest biscuits.

JLo, didn't you design all of their signage?  Its rad.  Of course it is.  Can you make me a few just like this one...for my tables at home?!?!?  Thanks.

Hipster Bingo App

Fellow PDXers, there is no excuse for any of us not to download this app asap...although it will be almost too easy to play here...

Baby Boy Is Here!

Baby Boy B arrived before I even made time to post pix from his surprise blue-themed baby shower brunch. Here are pix from last weekend's celebration...soon I'll be posting pix of the little man himself. He is here and he is perfect. I got to sneak a peek of him in the hospital before he was even 24 hours old. Congrats to the B family - you are so loved!!! We are looking forward to many good times with all FOUR of you!

Remember the cake mix?  And now tissues!  Trader Joes really does do a great job with packaging...

Prime Time

MC is a stud, and he knows his stuff when it comes to watch talk (and lots of other things too).  I love seeing friends doing cool things...don't you? 

Hooked on A Feeling

You may recall we love a good after dinner singalong...I guess we are cheesy like that.  Last night WKF wowed us with his grasp of a classic...oooka chakka...

Cute Contest

If my babes were older, I'd be all over this cute cardboard dollhouse contest. 

The dollhouse kit looks like a great way to spend $20...

Catamount Racing

Did you know that in college O and I (along with 5 other classmates) built a car for our senior project?  I loved seeing this article which confirms the project is still going strong and even gives a shout out to the original 7 members.  Here is a link to a photo of the originals...funny.  Go Cats Go!

Below is our car from Spring 2000
Here is a shot of O and I about 4 years ago...we went back to campus to check up on the Mini Baja team...

Farm To Fork, Oregon Schedule

Here is the schedule, this would be a rad date night, huh?

This post makes me believe I could actually make a headboard myself.  I LOVE this to think about...maybe this will be part of my bedroom makeover...if I ever get around to that project...

A funny thing..I just realized I have posted this same headboard before...but at the time I was focused on the striped wall...fab room all around...I fell for it twice.  

A Frame Love, continued

This recent entry into the AT small/cool contest affirms my deep love of the A-Frame. Which I may have mentioned once or twice before...
