My sister came over yesterday to hang out and with her she brought me these cheese collectors cards. They are from the Beehive Cheese Co. that she picked up at Williams Sonoma, because she knows I love cheese! :) lol I like the little packaging and how it opens up. I have been thinking about what I want to do for my upcoming 31st birthday next month, and I think I know now...visit the Beehive Cheese Co. , specifically to taste that smoked apple walnut! Anyone in the Davis/Salt Lake County or vicinity wanna come with? : [) Too nerdy?



I am sure you have already kick-started your summer reading.... mine officially starts tomorrow! One of my VERY favorite books that I hope you've read but still wanted to share, is "The Hundred Dresses" by Eleanor Estes and illustrated by one of my favorite illustrators Louis Slobodkin. It's about a polish girl living in upstate New York with her Dad and brother during the 40's and is based on a true story. Wanda [the Polish girl] is very poor and in junior high. The school girls always make fun of her because she wears the same dress to school every day, but then one day Wanda tells all the girls that she has 100 dresses....and that's all I am going to share. If you have never read it, I recommend buying it! It makes me cry every time I read it because of the sweet and honest story and because it reminds me of myself one time in junior high and when I spread a very mean rumor about a girl that I didn't like [this was because she was actually never nice too me...but still does not justify my behavior] and our whole class turned against her that she ended up having to switch classes. I never got over that until 9th grade when she and I became friends again...I still cringe every time I think about what I did. :[  But that is not the book I will be reading tomorrow...it is Eleanor Estes' other book The Middle Moffat which is book two of her Moffat series. :)


and then this book that I absolutely had to share: Making Faces by Norman Messenger. How funny and awesome is this? I can only imagine the fun kids would have with this book...perfect for church, car rides, vacations, doctor visits...you can get the "Famous Faces" version HERE for only 1 penny!!
Have a great weekend. :)

Dear cheese, what would do without you? It's funny because I also want to do some cheese related stuff (and honey related too, honey and cheese are the best of out of everything!) on my bday, and go there maybe http://www.lafromagerie.co.uk/

My sister had a book to make faces, a bit like yours when we were little, we used to spend so much time playing with it. I want to find it again!

PS: I am commenting a lot today, catching up, hope it's ok ;-)
