Saturday: farmers market, river fun and karaoke!

13 Aug

Its Saturday! Ahh sweet bliss! Time to eat cotton candy in the grass and splash around in the river. I cant wait for farmers markets and bike rides and photo fun with my lovely friend jenny. We will be dressing up in pretty frocks and being completely girly…that is until we get muddy from playing on the parkway. Later i will be checking out the new art house cinema in ogden and watching”queen of the sun”!

Savor these moments folks because winter is just around the corner. Most of you might be excited for snow and cold and wet and did i mention cold? But me? I am snow inept, a snow newb if you will. I get cold easily and the idea of being wet AND cold sounds like some form of ancient torture to me. Perhaps i need an experienced snow dweller to show me how its done, until then i will continue pouting about summer ending.

There is so much to do and don’t forget about the amazing indie films playing right here in downtown Ogden!
