Great Midwest Balloon Fest 2010

This past weekend my husband and I spent Friday evening at the Great Midwest Balloon Fest. This was the event's inaugural year, and I would say Friday night was a success for them! Unfortunately the Kansas weather didn't cooperate and for the most part the rest of the weekend's events had to be cancelled. We had such a great time the first night though! We arrived with enough time to see a bunch of balloons take off for an evening flight, then at sunset another round of balloons set up for a balloon glow. We will definitely be back next year! Enjoy!

Friday Finds!

Look at these awesome oversized poufs! These are handknit by Dana's Joy, who has a variety of items similar to these. I just love the charcoal color and the nubby texture. It's 'room fashion' that is also quite functional! Stop by her shop and have a look around! Have a lovely (almost fall!) weekend!

Project 2010:365 September 1- 5

sept:5 I have no idea if this tree/bush/plant is supposed to look like this, or if it's droopy from the extended hot weather we've had. Bring on Fall!

sept: 4 We grilled pizza. Yes, grilled. Dough and all. I don't think I can have pizza any other way from now on! :)


sept:2 We kinda had rain...we kinda need lots more! Our lawn is hurting after the hot August we had!

sept:1 Week 17 of our Farmer's Alliance...we're winding down, only about a month or so left! I'm going to miss it when it's over for the year!

Project 2010:365 August 26-August 31

The end of the week and into the weekend started off with a baking frenzy! I made one item every day, in hopes of filling my freezer with deliciousness!
