Welcoming June with an Open... Umbrella?

Me at the beach, unintentionally taken by my sister

My weekends are proving to be rather eventful thus far.

Last weekend the annual Folklife Festival was going on in the Seattle Center and I usually go to experience a bit of Seattle culture and to listen to Folk music, but this year I arrived with purpose. My good friend Honora had the luck of having one of the stages approach her asking if she would perform.
So of course I had to go see her.
And of course she was amazing. (As usual.)
Take a listen, you wont be disappointed.

This past Saturday I went to the Outlet Mall with my parents and ended up getting 2 pairs of shorts, a polo, and 2 button ups as well as satisfying the demands of a Fathers Day gift. Pictures on my new clothes to come soon, I'm going to try to have one of my friends in photography school do a shoot with me. After spending too much money I met up with two of my friends who just got back from school, and we ended up at Starbucks after a while. (I tried an earl grey tea latte and it was fantastic.)

After that I went over to another friends place to make fried PB&J's. (When we were at Folklife we saw a food stand whose specialty was deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We all thought this was an interesting concept, but none of us wished to spend $7 on a sandwich so we vowed to make them ourselves.) They are actually rather good. If you wish to try yourself, make sure you pile on a lot of peanut butter and jelly, then coat in pancake batter, and fry - we used sunflower oil.

I ended up having to work on Sunday, but that's life.

Just listening to Kings of Leon, enjoying tea, and thinking about reading more.

Fun stuff!

And your friend Honora is really talented! Her voice reminds me of Zooey Deschanel, but more defined.

I really love Honora's voice. I think it was Amy who sent some of her songs to me on a mix CD and I listen to them all the time. Hurrah for successful clothing acquisitions! A photoshoot thingy would be cool. And fried PB&J sounds delicious... I want to try.

HONORA RULES. I miss the stuff you guys used to do together.

Fried pb&j sounds like a stomach-ache to me, but I'm a walking stomach-ache attraction, so that kind of sucks.

I hope you're enjoying work. Lord knows I'm not.

Honora said...

All of you are so sweet :)

Honora is lovely :)
I hope she has some sort of gig we can attend while I'm in town! I'd love that!

Sounds like you got a good haul shopping!
