party favor plants

July 18, 2012

hello my friends. i’m squeezing in an extra post here today to let you know i was featured on studio 5 on KSL in Utah yesterday. if you came to mingle with us in June, or you saw this post about upcycling cans for plants, i discuss these two ideas here on tv.

i really dislike watching and listening to myself speak on tv, i swear i don’t talk out of the side of my mouth like that – but it seems to be what i do and i’m in denial, or what i do when i’m nervous! eegads.}

from what i understand, some momma’s look forward to grocery shopping sans kids. i’m not a big fan of grocery stores – however, i can totally relate when in a different situation. i look forward to my time on airplanes sans kids. especially when wifi is involved!

My head is still buzzing from mingling on tuesday evening…

the mingle scene.

Shelby and I, equipped with door prizes for the guests.

Color. I am so glad that everyone brought their shining beauty, and joined in the fun.

We had 2 official photographers working mingle this time, Justin Hackworth and Ashley Thalman. Go take a look at the photos here and here.  They did an outstanding job. Plus, they’re really cool people and fun to hang out with! (The images on this post were shot by them.)

I met so many wonderful people at mingle@soel!


mingle@soel : tonight!

June 26, 2012

Hello, Friends! As I mentioned, I’m in Utah getting ready for mingle@soel! I am really digging the dry utah heat! The weather is straight out of my dreams and the wasatch mountains look as beautiful as ever! It’s a short trip — I’ll be back in Boston on Friday, but it’s always delightful to be in the place that truly feels like home.

Tonight, is the night! Are you coming to mingle? Remember: wear color! I packed a few options, and am still trying to decide what to wear! : ) This is your chance to bring some friends and mingle with some really great people!


what to wear: to mingle

June 25, 2012

hello from utah! friends, it’s time to mingle tomorrow night! will you be there? the evening is being planned with lots of color, and if you are coming – we’d love to see you wearing bright, fun colors!

what should you wear? Think: summer gala! now, gala can mean a lot of things so let me explain – whatever you like to wear that makes you feel a little fancy, wear it. maybe that’s white capri’s and flip-flops, maybe you have a tulle skirt for special occasions you want to pair with a fun tee? maybe you have a prom gown you are dying to wear again? whatever makes you feel good, put it on!


it’s time to mingle!

hello there! i am so excited to share some news with you… this past month has been truly exhausting, but lucky for all of us – there is a party on the horizon!

remember this event in February? Well… things have changed just a little {i scooted your cheese over just a tiny bit} and now we are mingle! the name changed, but our vision remains the same. mingle has replaced “utah bloggers.” so, go grab your iPhone-calender-planner-whatever you schedule your life with, and pencil in this info:

look at the sponsors, we are going to have the best party ever!
