Took a muggy, morning walk with Bubba and rambled about stuff I’m trying and going to try. Kind of a long vlog for me, but wanted to share a couple of things, in case it helps anyone else. Feel free to learn from my mistakes! (Also feel free to skip entirely.) I’m okay with slow and steady, as long as I’m learning along the way.
I won’t bother restating everything I said in the vlog. Suffice it to say, I’m still doing freezer meal prep for dinners. And now I’m going to extend that to lunches. I think having emergency stashes at work and in my car, is going to help during those times I’m stuck at work and can’t get home.
Work has been pretty interesting lately. We shot an amazingly cheesy, music video for an upcoming project. Audrey did all the hair and makeup. Check out the look she gave me:
I should go to the grocery store like this.
Here’s the rest of the “band.” This would be funnier, if you knew what we really look like. Just know that these people are actually a nurse, teacher, worship leader, truck driver and electrician. Now, we have all discovered our secret, inner rock star. heh heh
We. Are. Rockstars
Also, we’re recovering from popping 600 bags of popcorn for the weekend. We started a new, summer movies series and are serving popcorn each week. That’s a LOT of popcorn.
I may stop loving popcorn in the next five weeks...
We’ve had fun with the set, though. Look— giant, candy boxes, full of calorie-free, invisible candy. SparkWorthy.
Imagine if those SnoCaps were real! Holy cow.
And here’s a little Pinterest win we tried. We wanted to make our movie posters light up, like the vintage signs. One of my team members found this tip and it worked really well. We cut slits in ping pong balls and slid LED Christmas lights into each ball. They form little light-up globes. It was cheap and turned out really cute. I think Shelley’s daughter is going to use this idea in her dorm room. I’m not really a crafty person, but thought I’d pass this along. It really is a clever idea. Just make sure the lights are LEDs, so you don’t melt the ping pong balls…
Fun little idea
Well, I suppose I’ll sign off here and go tackle some housework. My house looks like it’s been in the eye of a sharknado. (Please tell me you’ve watched at least one Sharknado movie this summer. It gives your brain some necessary rest time.)
Oh, I must leave you with this inspirational photo of Bubba. I love these flowers; I think they’re totally Dr. Seussian creations. Cindy Lou Who probably has a vase of them on her nightstand. I was later informed that the flowers are called Naked Ladies, which probably makes this picture inappropriate now.
A Moment with Bubba
Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!!
