Going out for an Art weekend? I've gathered some outfits (over at Polyvore) that can take you through your art fest in style. And comfort. I chose 3 Art Weekender destinations that have wonderful, WONDERFUL, art scenes. You really should try being an Art Weekender.
Tell me what art scene I should dress for next.
We had our daughter's bridal shower the day before the wedding so her BFF, who was flying in, could be there. Even with the BFF's flight coming in late we still squeezed it in between all the setting up.
I'm not much into some bridal shower games. But, living an artsy life, lead me to the idea of having the guests paint little birdhouses (to go along with the birdhouse theme) and leave a wedding wish for the couple's new love nest.
I was surprised at how long everyone spent on them. Just proves to me that everyone has an inner artist. Whether they want to admit it our not. Here are a few up close. Then, we used them at the reception to decorate the cake table.
Then they got to take them home after the reception. What are some ways that you've celebrated bridal showers?
My sister posted this video the other day. It was so on target that I had to see if there were anymore. And there were. They're delightful so I'm sharing.

"More than 79% of Americans feel "the most significant family or social problem facing America is the physical absence of the father from the home." Research shows that the lack of a father in the home correlates closely with crime, educational and emotional problems, teenage pregnancy, and drug and alcohol abuse.
In an effort to show dads the critical role they play in their children's lives, the Ad Council has partnered with the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse and volunteer ad agency Campbell-Ewald to create a new PSA campaign that communicates to fathers that their presence is essential to their children's well-being. The campaign provides fathers with the information they need to become better dads."

The Boyfriend has been the best father I could wish for, for my children. He's been invested in our family since the word... yes. That's never been a question in my mind or the minds of my children. He is essential to their well-being. And mine. I would have great difficulty parenting without him.
With all of his wonderfulness, I can't see him doing some of those things in the videos - manicure, cheering, double dutch - but that's part of the message. As a father, do what you do. Your way. Your style. The father of my children does things his way. Like starting a pig farm, shooting guns, or building a boat. Some of his way makes me crazy! Like the pig incident. But, that's only from my view. My son thinks differently. And that's the point. So, do something, "Take Time to be a Dad Today".
