Favourite Friday – the April 22nd edition: kittens, rainbows and pop tarts

April 22, 2011

L-A: I finished classes this week! It’s a pretty swell feeling. Something along the lines of this:

pop tarts kittens rainbows unicorns

That’s right. A hot mess of kittens and rainbows and pop tarts (cherry are the best).

Believe it or not, I used some of the skillz I learned in school to create that sucker. Erin would either be super proud or super ashamed of how I’ve used the mask thingy to work photoshop magic on kittens and pop tarts.

I’m not even sure what to do with myself these days. I’m kind of excited, kind of lonely. You spend eight months with the same 30 people and then one day you don’t. Weird.

Anyway. This should mean more time for FPQT. Which means more time to plan a birthday party.

In other favourites, I’m still on the lookout for this dress:

Seriously folks. If you see this in a large at your local Joe Fresh, do not hesitate to email us. I have a paypal account and I’m not afraid to use it. Or, if the Easter Bunny is real, he should totally get on this. Because I’m dreaming of that dress.

Another favourite is the upcoming Halifax Crafters market:

This will be the first show in a few years where I’m not selling anything. I’m not getting out of the monkey business, but I didn’t have the time to make anything. So I’ll be there hanging out and probably spending money. Hard not to. Fun new spring accessories? Yes please. And don’t forget one of Ally’s favourite t-shirts came from a Crafters show.

While I’m over at the Olympic Centre, Ally has plans to check out the WagJag block party at the Paragon. It’ll be Hugh’s first visit to a bar, so it’s a big day. Full disclosure: the folks at WagJag offered us a chance to try out their service on the house. And it was hard to say no to the offer when this deal came up:

Cocktails are like my kryptonite, so I couldn’t pass up the chance to own a turquoise flower cocktail ring.

One final thing: we were asked if we’d mention the Fresh Air Fund. It’s not our usual thing, but honestly, it was hard to say no. Give kids from New York City a chance to spend their summer hanging out in places like Nova Scotia? Seems like an awesome idea to me. I was fortunate enough to have access to a cottage in the summers when I was growing up, so I don’t really know what it’d be like not to have that. Anyway, the Fresh Air Fund is looking for host families to take on kids for two weeks during the summer. Maybe it’s something you or someone you know would be interested in (my apartment in metro Halifax would be a lousy trade for any urban kid).

So that’s it for me. Enjoy your long weekend, whatever it is your doing/celebrating. I’ll leave it to Ally to find you a crappy pop video.

Ally: Sorry I’m late! I finished my antibiotics last night which meant wine-time. As for the crappy pop video of the week, please, it’s got to be Britney. I’ve been dancing my badonkadonk off to this track.

In other news, I did look for L-A’s dream dress at my local Joe Fresh. Nada. Did find a cute nautical shirt that I almost bought for her. I’m thinking L-A and I are due a shopping trip soon. Rumour has it that H&M are selling baby suspenders. Yes! Imagine?

    I saw The Dress yesterday at Portland Joe Fresh. Alas, size medium. Instead I bought a ruffled shirt for me. I will keep eyes peeled!

    PS – I am also lonely without all my PR peeps. Weird.

    Aww..bless. I remember those heady days, kids. It’s so hard switching from the “holy-shit-how-can-I-possibly-get-all-of-this-done-I-want-to-cry-and-sleep” pace of PR skool to pace of real life once again. And the loneliness of no longer having your 30 best partners in crime with you at every waking moment takes some getting used to as well. My advice? Just get drunk. Either separately or as a class… you know, whatevs….

      I like the way you think, Ms. Hennigar. I will totally deal with the end of school by going for drinks.

    I can’t believe you haven’t found this dress yet. I feel almost guilty for how I so casually bought one for myself a few weeks ago. What size do you need? I will keep my eyes peeled — nautical items aren’t as popular here on the prairies, so there may still be a bunch around.

      Must be something about the sea air (well, harbour air) that’s making Halifax crazy for the nautical. I also wasn’t shopping much a few weeks ago, so I probably just missed my chance (they had it in green at the Joe Fresh nearest to me…but that’s not the same).

      I’m still in PR withdrawal…went on a breakfast date this morning to get a PR fix. Also, my ridiculous photoshopping of kittens cheers me up a little.

      I’m determined to own that dress.
