The Weekend's Events

1.Friday evening we spent our time with an organization called Freedom to Thrive. Back in the fall Will, Tasia, and myself went to a showing of the documentary Demand. It discusses the reality of human trafficking in the United States and overseas. It was disturbing to hear the statistics and the stories of those that have been trafficked around the world. In an effort to learn more Will and I went to the training meeting to become film presenters. We are hoping to be able to show it this Friday night. If you live near by you are welcome to join us.

2.On Saturday I got to spend some time with Will before he headed back to school work. We walked down to Starbuck's to get some coffee and then came home and made breakfast. I really enjoy mornings where I don't have to wake up early and  be somewhere. I went to the library and picked up a copy of The Power of Now. A friend mentioned this book to me so I decided to check it out. I will let you know what I think when I start reading it. Then I took a trip to the fabric store to pick up a few things for some up coming projects. Here is one that I completed:

Molly told me about this great ornament idea. Every year when Christmas is over you cut the bottom of your tree off, drill a hole for the ribbon, and write the date on it.

3. We threw a party for Claire who turned thirty-one. The title of her party was "Making Therty-One A Derty One." It was a great success. We went to several dive bars around town to see how dirty it gets in Birmingham. We didn't get too far because we were so mesmerized by a place called Bourbon Street. It is a karaoke bar and let me tell you it was AMazing. Also Will and I dressed up to add to the "dertiness."

No Party is complete
without glow sticks...
well no 'derty' ones that is


The 'Derty' Couple

The Birthday Woman

Group Shot

I guess Zombie by The Cranberries
wasn't the best song to pick after all. 
A Bourbon Street staple: the Baby.
It was enough for our whole table.


  1. My glow necklace is still glowing! Apparently it didn't want the fun to end either!

  2. What a derty couple! I love it. So happy to see that sweet little ornament and thanks for the shout, ps. I am joining an organization here in the city called Love146 that raises awareness for child exploitation & trafficking. So glad to know you & Will are joining the fight as well. I love you and I miss you.
