big plans


I have big plans for this lovely weekend-- I want to make something pretty. For fun. With lots of textures and layers. I started this fabric & felt album last weekend so I hope to finish that up.

I also hope to work on my hula hoop skills. My little brother got me a hula hoop for my birthday. Since I haven't hula hooped since the 5th grade I definitely need to perfect it...

Plan this little girl's circus/dumbo themed birthday party...
Go on a date with this silly boy... (I'm glad you enjoyed his video! Some of you said you were laughing to tears-welcome to my life.)

I also plan to scrap with some Dear Lizzy... Here's a really fun offer just for you!

From your tweet the other night, I just have to know...where can you get good mango and sticky rice in utah county? I have been on the hunt forever!

elizabeth kartchner said...

T,
Our favorite Thai Restaurant is Thai Ruby in Provo... order C5 for sure and we also like SF7.
Then get the mango and sticky rice.

We've ate at Thai Chili Gardens in Orem and Thai Village in American Fork too but Thai Ruby is our ultimate favorite. I must go there this weekend!

Amy said...

Sounds like a fun weekend! I have never had Thai, and I'm not sure how far I would have to drive in WI to find one!! I live in the middle of know where! :)

Already shopping!! Hee hee!

Jessica Woodford said...

A circus themed party sounds SO fun!

Our big plans entail going to bday parties & a Daisy troop picnic. Hopefully lots of family time and doing something creatively fun for myself :)

Sounds like a wonderful weekend you have planned, Happy Birthday to Avery, is she turning 4, she looks to be about that age, my little girl is turning 11, time flies!! Can't wait to see your fabric masterpiece, have fun with your silly boy on your date...

mollyvh said...

Now that I am done ordering a whole lot of fun stuff... I will spend the weekend visiting with my niece and my nephew- I am hoping to get some good pictures to scrap with!

Joli said...

Sounds like a great way to spend a rainy weekend!
My little girl had a circus for the last day of preschool, the teachers had lots of great ideas! My favorite was red streamers tied on the top of a hula hoop to make it look like they were jumping through a ring of fire. You already have the hula hoop!

I just LOVE scrapbooking, missing it so much since lately I just haven't been able to focus when I sit down to scrap! I am in a "scrapper's block" right now!! it's a real bummer! Maybe I need to head to ARchivers and get some "DEAR LIZZY" this weekend!
My good friend is coming to visit, another friend and I are going to some garage sales, hoping I can scrapbook, my daughter wants to go on a bike ride, and hopefully have coffee and chill with my hubs since I haven't seen him much these last 5 months!!!
have a fabulous weekend!!!!!!

My friend owns a clothing resale shop & has lots of vintage stuff. She got a photographer to come over & take about 900 photographs of our group of friends wearing clothes from the resale shop. It was fun, Fun, FUN, FuN, fUn!!! And the photographer asked me to do some modeling for her because she has some ideas & needed a red head & I fit her bill. Made me feel beautiful & lifted my spirit after a long & hard week. Plus, I'm trying to refine my hoopdancing skills. Check out www.hoopnotica.com or www.hoopgirl.com There are a few others but they sell hoops that are bigger, have a little more weight to them & are easier to learn to keep up for a longer period of time. And their DVD's are great & can teach you how to hoopdance NOT just hula-hoop. It can be so much fun & I'm not even a dancer & I have my hips moving. I'm also trying to learn a new hoopdancing trick before the weekend is over & helping my MIL pack up her stuff for storage so her apt can be fixed from the small kitchen fire she had last week. Lots to get done so I better get some sleep.

Tiffany said...

Fun! This weekend I am all about relaxing. Spending some time with my main man and playing with the babes. BTW...I totally have that jacket you are wearing in the hula hoop picture.

Have a great weekend!

Jane said...

It's going to rain all weekend here in Zagreb! :) So I'm going to clean, clean, clean....have ignored the house too long and squeeze in some time when the kids go to bed to do some doodling!

Tracey said...

Went to the craft fair that is on this weekend in Perth, Western Australia and I got some lovely fabric. Hoping to start something fun with it this weekend.
Love me :-)

Ashley said...

I am probably one of the youngest who reads your blog... a would be senior in highschool, but in college a year early. I have Prom tonight, Cedar Point Sunday, and then a dress rehearsal for a dance recital on Monday. In the meantime, I have to finish making 14 handmade headbands with fabric flowers matching the costumes of one of the dance classes I teach!! It should be fun and interesting to master it all!

Have a great weekend!

SuZeQ said...

Our weekend started yesterday at Main Street fair, pizza and wine followed by a trip to the Dairy Queen. Today will be a BBQ birthday celebration (late) for my s-i-l with his favorite cake, hold the nuts, please. Sunday will be filled with the typical Sunday stuff. All this with lots of card-making for me. GO WEEKEND.

Kitty said...

The last two weeks it was raining in Cracow and unfortunately it will be raining all this weekend :( I'm going to relax, watch movies and nap. Regards from Poland!

After moving & a month of not having internet, I'm going to CATCH UP ON YOUR BLOG!!! :), decorate, play outside with my family & drink some ice cold lemonade. :) I have to say CONGRATULATIONS to you & your sweet family on baby number 3 coming this fall! :) Looks like our babies will be a month apart. We're due with number 2 the first of October! Looking forward to even more exciting everyday moments! Enjoy your weekend Liz! Thanks for all your inspiration!

Myra said...

your weekend sounds like fun... enjoy it! I plan to celebrate my husband's bday in one of his favorite restaurants... and I also plan to find some time to do some scrapbooking... but I have to organize/clean up my scraproom a little before do something... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh

Mooshee Design said...

love your blog:) this is kind of off the wall question... do you know of an awesome hair colorist in utah? I thought since you live here you might be able to point me in the right direction. I've recently moved here and oh my! cant find a decent hair colorist. I would greatly appreciate the help. thanks a bunch

Altaira said...

this weekend we found out that the baby negioatations can come to a halt because we are pregnant LOL we were trying not to have a baby just yet - later in the year would have been a little better for us - but the big man in the sky had other plans for us :) so now i get to be reminded 24/7 of how it feels to be nauseous :) hope you are getting to the end of that stage cuz it is THE worst!

the johnson's said...

Sounds like you will be busy, busy! I am hoping to be going into labor as baby #4 is due on Monday. No such luck yet! I have always been overdue so I'm not holding my breath. In the meantime, we're trying to spend some fun time with the 3 girls prior to baby. We had a picnic lunch at the park today, followed by some fishing (no bites), then took them to see Shrek. Congrats on baby #3. 3 girls would be awesome!!! ;-) Also, thinking that it was about a year ago we met at CKU in Nashville. And can you believe the flooding there now? Have you seen any of the pics?

Your Hubby is the best! my hubby wouldn't be caught dead doing that video! Although I am sure he is thinking exactly what Colin was saying!

Wendy said...

My weekend consisted of tending grandkids, delivering one to her mom in Twin Falls (a 6 hour drive for us) and church. LOVED Collin's video! Would hula-hooping make the little one dizzy?

Holly :) said...

I spent time with my Momma last night, and we laughed ourselves silly. Today I scrapped with my bestie and transformed a paint can into a lovely fairy bucket with buttons, flowers, and dragonflies. I used this great fairy paper that I'm sadly sure is not available anymore but to just sit and create was wonderful!

I'm very glad Collin decided to share laughter, cause his birthday hi-jack might have cause some damp eyes. I'm sure they were just glistening or something...I wasn't teary. But if I was, it was because it reminded me to keep the faith that I'll be sent a super guy someday. I truly believe there is a special somebunny for everybunny, but was beginning to lose that. So, thank you. :D Blessings to y'all!

That video was hilarious!!! "Robert Pattin(son) himself" and "ok weekly" cracked me up! Off to see if there are more funny videos! I had to make my husband watch that since we both like twlight but also make fun of it.
