I was asked to help plan a baby shower for a close friend and we immediately dove in. Neither of us had ever planned a baby shower before so there were a lot of internet searches and thinking about our friend Marie. Little did I know, Marie and I were a good party planning team. We each had our jobs and it all came together beautifully. Balloon streamers were built, balloon rain cloud was created, mason jar bands were knitted, cupcakes baked, skype date booked with a friend in Montreal who couldn’t attend, a punch mixed, games prepared and invitations designed. Bam!

Marie just wouldn’t shut up about Portlandia and then, finally, I did a little search online and I found this video (below). Now I’m going to push you to watch Portlandia. Do it. Do it. Do it. Watch it. Do it.
HAPPY FRIDAY! I just yelled that at you.
Thanks to Marie-Kristine I was introduced to Green Porno, a series of short films created, written, directed by and starring the amazing Isabella Rossellini. In each episode of season 1 Isabella creatively enacts a different species’ mating ritual…on a very low budget. You can view all the videos on The Sundance Channel (in US site).
To get you excited, below is episode Green Porno : Snail. WOW.
Six girls spending a weekend in Idaho can only result in sore jaws, screaming, giggling, creepy stalkers, stiff drinks, funnel cake, phoebe in the boys washroom, chair dancing, bathroom abductions, honest looks of terror, wet clothes, sweaty palms, nausea, a heap of shopping bags and a painful and tiring trip home. With an upcoming wedding as the perfect excuse to get away for a weekend, Marnie, Phoebe, Marie, Rebecca, Tristen and I traveled to Idaho to spend a day at Silverwood Amusement Park and a night in Coeur D’Alene. It was non stop hilarity and we’ve come home with so many good stories that will make us laugh just thinking about it. Thanks, girls, for such an amazing weekend. I appreciate you!
Now I can’t wait until the boys get home from Silver Star Resort. I hope there’s at least one picture I can post here from their weekend.
