Park City Weekend


We (hubby and I) sometimes drive up the road to Park City to hang out on weekends when our kids are away visiting their other parents or off doing their own things. Our favorite thing to do there is window shop and check out the stores along the historic district. This past weekend it was extra fun because my husband is building a very, very large home (around 17,000 sq. ft.) on top of the mountain and I got to have the personal tour of the home, stand on the platform over the concrete pit which will be the indoor swimming pool, see the massive amounts of custom woodwork in this home and get a glimpse of the exclusive community it's being built in. I must say, you feel sort of insignificant standing on top of a massive mountain surrounded by huge vacation homes and towering aspen trees !

After the "personal" tour, we ate an early dinner at a quaint little restaurant on historic Main Street across from the Mary G. Steiner Egyptian Theatre which the Sundance Film Festival uses as one of its venues. Our only famous person siting was Mark Eaton, former Utah Jazz player, current business man, tv person
ality and motivational speaker. He is one tall drink of water. We laughed because it seems whenever we see famous people, it seems to be athletes ! Here are a few photos from our weekend:

Looks like a lovely day trip! I'm jealous. It's always nice to get away, even if it's not far away!

(replying to your comment on my blog) Thanks so much for your kind words! I can't stand baby and theme fabrics either! I searched high and low for cake boards- the only ones i was able to find had scalloped edges(which won't work since i'm covering it in patterned paper and not paint.) I picked up some thick insulation board today and am going to try to cut the size circles i need out of it! We'll see how that goes!!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.


We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
