simply tutu's

I am finally ready to unveil my tutu's. Click the image to the right of my page that says simply tutu's and you can link to the tutu blog. I am excited for you all to see it! Comment or email me if you have any questions about anything. I would love love to hear what you think. (I am still going to post more pictures, but this gives you an idea.) Enjoy!

Sarah Jane

One of my favorite Etsy artists Sarah Jane is actioning this adorable calendar set on her site. It's for a good cause, you should check it out here.

sleep deprived

am plotting ways to get back at my not so thoughtful downstairs neighbors. can't imagine any reason to blare your stereo and bass until midnight.. unless of course they are sacrificing animals and beating drums.. in which case i think it could wait til' morning. perhaps vacuuming outside their door at 5 am will shut them up.. or me sneaking down the fire escape and duct taping their windows from the outside...

Happy Birthday Amy and Emily!

Sheryl Crow Concert

Last night we went to the Sheryl Crow concert. (stayed up way too late) Sheryl Crow was amazing, by far one of mine and Bob's favorite concerts. The opening acts suhhucked, but it was fun to make fun of them.

This is Bob dancing to the opening act. They were a cross between Reggae and Gospel music. So he was doing his gospel hands.

One of the things that made it so fun was Bob's aunt Nita and uncle Brad came with us. They are seriously some of the funniest people! You will never see Brad without a smile on his face, and you can always hear Nita saying funny remarks.

Nita and I got matching Sheryl Crow t-shirts.

Bob and I had a lot of fun hanging out on the lawn. Bob tells me I'm too picture crazy, but if I was going to smuggle in a camera, I was going to get good use out of it!

She even played my favorite song "I Can't Cry Anymore" (am making Bob teach me how to play it on the guitar) I was going crazy singing and dancing.

Such a fun night! Thanks to Nita, Brad, and Bob who were so fun to hang out with!

Would You Rather (6)

Would you rather go to prom in this..

or this..

Happy Birthday Nita!

No picture, Nita wouldn't let me.

Happy Monday

When your weekend includes Red Robin twice, Batman on the IMAX, spending time with people you love, and finally relaxing after a tough week, it doesn't seem so hard to return to work. So.. happy Monday!

Double your pleasure, double your fun.

It seems to be the summer of duets. I love this, this and this, but this is my favorite. Could listen to it over and over.. and I have.

Sometimes I love how fast things spread in blog world! Just found this here. Jason is the next Bachelor! Woo Hoo!

Remember when...

George Jetson was shuffled out of bed, and put through that machine that would shower him, brush his teeth, do his hair, etc..?

I want one. (maybe that way waking up wouldn't be so hard, or I could sleep while the machine does it's magic)

Back to school..

My husband Robert goes back to school today. Which makes me think about when I used to get so excited to go back to school, and how I loved to do all the shopping beforehand. My mom and I would head to the store to buy..

(Do you remember Trapper Keepers?! I loved them, except mine usually looked more like this..)

I would put all this in my backpack (that I would only sling over one shoulder because that was the hip thing to do) and skip off to school. Speaking of how hip I was..

I wonder if I could get away with that outfit now, not to mention the sweet side pony.

Weezer Concert

These guys are coming in concert on October 7th. Although they have been one of my favorite bands since I was in elementary school. I have every one of their cd's ever released.. and even though I have almost every single one of their songs memorized by heart. I still have not seen them in concert. Bob was lucky enough to see them and the Chili Peppers in Vegas a while back, but alas poor Caity hasn't seen them. (it seems in blog world I refer to myself in third person quite often)

I can't justify going though, because we have tickets for Sheryl Crow at the end of this month. Sheryl hasn't come to Utah in a very long time, so I figured I better jump at the chance to see her. After all she was my very first c.d. ever. Ah, nostalgia.

So here is what I am trying to determine... Is it worth it to try to go to both concerts? I am sure Weezer will tour again, but let's be honest.. I have a crush on Rivers. Okay there's the dilemma, suggestions?

Food, Friends, and Rock

We had a great Saturday night with our friends. Went to our favorite Thai place, and then back to our apartment for Rock Band. (Amy and Matt left before we could break out the camera.)

I don't want to brag, but we are pretty hard core. We rocked every one's faces off as Bob would say.

{Sneak Peak}

I had a lot of people inquire as to what I am going to "unveil" so I thought I would give you all a sneak peak of what I have been working on..

Tutu's! I am making tons of different colors and combinations. Some with bows, some with flowers. I can't wait to show you everything, I am still working on getting it all together. I am really proud of them, because they are such great quality and way fuller than the ones you find in the mall. I am making them in baby and little girl sizes. (My nieces are already so attached they won't take them off!) I am also making them in two different styles. Swan Lake and Nutcracker. I can't wait to unveil it all soon.

I still have another project I am going to reveal, but I have to keep those a secret until I give them to Alana and Jess's babies. There has to be something to surprise them with at their showers!

Oh and I have the best mom EVER, she has been so helpful and supportive with this. I really don't deserve her. I love you Mom.

Snips and Snails..

Just found out that my brother and his wife are going to have a little baby BOY! Can't wait to meet little baby George. With cute sisters like these, he is sure to be a doll.

and the medal goes to..

It was such an intense night of women's gymnastics. China won the gold, and America won the silver. If you look at the pictures you will notice two things..

1- It appears that the girls from China are about 3 years old.


2- The American girls are all smiling, but in their heads they are thinking the only reason they are wearing silver medals is because of one teammate in particular. The one that I am sure did some heavy drinking after the competition. (click here to see what I mean)

Happy "Bee" Day!

My mom created another cake masterpiece last night for Sophia's "Bee" day party. I don't have that many pictures of her since she zonked out for most of the night.

Can't believe it's been two years already!

Not what you want to see before you go to bed..

Um, Mr. Middle Eastern downstairs neighbor boy? If you could please remove your scantily clad (and might I say hairy) body from the stairwell so I can avoid having to squeeze past you when I get home every night. It would be greatly appreciated.


your upstairs neighbor (who is soon to be wearing a blind fold when she comes in at night)

p.s. Please spare me from having to see you in your old man short striped boxers and your wife beater (that is completely see through) so I can get a good night sleep minus the "hairy" nightmares. Just because it's ten o'clock does not mean it's too late for anyone to see or run into you. Believe me.

Happy Birthday Sophia!

Free Rice

(since I am at work once again on a Saturday, I thought I would take a little break from the Seattle stuff and post about something a little different.)

I found this cool website. It's a way to help out and get smarter. Click here to see what I mean.

BobCat loose in Seattle.

Taken with our toy camera on the beach. (more Holga's on Monday, and then I will stop boring all of you with the Seattle trip!)

The Pacific Science Center (we were sitting at an enormous table with huge chairs)

Us at the Underground Tour. (Bob looks a little crazed)


Thanks to Bonnie and Jon who recommended the Crab Pot . The food was fabulous. I don't even like fish, but I loved my burger and I even tried some of Bob's crab, and I loved it. So tasty. Fish tastes way better right by the ocean!

They start out by putting down paper. They give you a bib (it gets really messy) and mallet.

Then they bring you out a big bowl and dump it on your table in front of you. (I have made a diagram so you can more fully understand the tasty goodness)

And this is the aftermath..

It was so fun and yummy. We were on the pier too, so it was a beautiful view. That was my favorite thing about eating in Seattle. The views were always spectacular! Anyway, I would definitely recommend this place!
