Yes my friends. It's Earth Day. I do love Earth Day. This all started about two years ago when me and some of my 'Europe friends' (as I call them because we bonded on our Europe study abroad in 2004), decided we needed an excuse to get together and do something fun. We do this frequently; we have Fall parties, Winter parties, St. Patrick's Day parties, weekly Lost parties... oh we're a bundle of fun.

Last year we decided to have a picnic out at Sugarhouse park (KFC - delicious! that's my once-a-year indulgence), and played games. The year before we made fruit smoothies, played games and watched Planet Earth in Blue Ray (that show is amazing fyi). This year we're celebrating Earth Day later on in the week, *hopefully*, and going to the new Disney movie Oceans.

I like loving my planet - call me hippie I guess.

In case you're wondering, no, I don't really recycle and I'm not one of those nuts who eats only natural food. But I still love Earth Day :D

Oh and I think I'm going to make whoopie pies for a baby shower I'm helping host on Saturday for my friend Andi. And I think I'll re-create my delicious sour cream, strawberry, layered cake in a trifle. Oh yummy...

Oh yes, we most definitely are a bundle of fun, and I love making up reasons to have little parties! I definitely want to go see Oceans if we have time this weekend, and those pies look a-ma-zing. I will devour one greedily ;)

I would like to come to both celebrations, please? Will you think about holding them in NYC?!

So I guess with you celebrating Earth day "later in the week" and doing a shower on Sat--I shouldn't be waiting for a surprise bday party from you?!

Wish I could make it to the parties. I'm happy to be on the east coast, but do miss my Euro friends.

p.s. I call you my Euro friends too and my parents said it makes me sound snooty. I'm fine with that!

Looks like I need to buy you a Subaru Outback.
