Yes, I know it’s Tuesday. 

But, really, Monday is for mourning the weekend’s passing. 

Tuesday is for celebrating it.

(or, on Monday, we are too busy to post about our weekend.  choose as you please. )

Well, regardless, it was FUN.  Like crazy fun.  here is the recap, and the links to go along with it!


We started out Saturday  by venuring to the Northwest Film Forum for their Children’s Film Festival.  You see, it was the North America premiere of “Moomin and the Midsummer Madness” on the big screen. 

If you know me, you know how much I love and adore Moomin.  Oh, and Snork Maiden with her yellow hair poof.  I, of course, wore my Moomin t-shirt, which I got at the Moomin Museum in Tampere, Finland.  {take that kids!}

The full length movie was awesome.  The best part– after the Moomin family had been forced to retreat to the second floor of their home due to the first floor flooding, Moomintroll swam through the first floor to retrieve the coffee beans that were left there.  Meanwhile, upstairs, Moominpappa was busy chopping a chair “that no one liked anyways” into kindling for the fire he was building on the middle of the floor.  No, the fire was not for warmth… It was to boil water for their coffee!  How Finnish!

Then, were jaunted over to the home of a friend who is getting married this year to help with wedding related crafts.  🙂  I’m sure you will see some of that when we are done…

Sunday… we tried a new-to-us brunch place over in Ballard ….

{The Leary Traveler had a built-your-own bloody mary bar.  ‘Nough said.}

…and watched the first Rat City Rollergirls bouts of the season.  The SOCKiT Wenches, our fav derby team won!  I mean, how can you go wrong with team members like Swede Hart, Caddie Smack, Anya Heels, and {my personal favorite} Sarah Impalin???

AH, fun times.  Is it Saturday yet?
