Country and Class

It’s been the week of Big Events for me.

Our first Brooks Bell Interactive conference, called Click, was this past Thursday, and it was really successful. (Get your invite requests in early next year– I bet we’ll sell out fast.) The format was conversational and participatory, rather than the usual sit-and-listen type conference. We heard lots of great feedback and conversation.

Then Saturday was a big day full of two events. First, we went to Hog Day in Hillsborough. It’s always really, really hot for Hog Day, but it’s worth it. Robbie went for the barbecue of course, and we partook. My favorite part was the sleepy baby cow and the tiny little pony.

Then Some Class

Then yesterday evening was the Museum of Life & Science fundraiser, Night at the Museum. Not only did we get to try great food from lots of Triangle area restaurants, there was a great band, an open bar, walking trails (with dinosaurs), a train ride, butterflies, and giant bugs that the museum staff were removing from their display boxes and letting people touch. (I passed on touching the rhino beetle. No thanks.)

What did you do this weekend?

  • merindab

    Sounds like fun. Yesterday we checked out a local flea market (thinking of selling my photos at one), then ended up going to IHOP for breakfast and then went to a local railroad museum.

    Today, uh, I need to go grocery shopping

  • Baseball practice (All Star games for oldest are next weekend) and working on finishing my cross-stitch wedding invitation. I started it 2 and half years ago for my 10th anniversary. Not finished…so making an effort to finish it by end of September for 12th Anniversary.

    Hubby is helping youngest clean his room by separating lego pieces into a cabinet by size/shape. And I'm doing laundry. Very little in the way of outside activities.
