What I am doing lately.

June 17, 2011

Lately my life is being consumed by pink.  I know, how awesome is that!  Sunday kicks off my Pink Week celebration.  See, back when I started this blog two years ago I really wanted to celebrate something just for the sake of celebrating it.  No religious symbolism, not tied to celebrating a person, place or thing.  Just a good reason to eat ice cream and cupcakes and make pretty things for other people.  And for myself.  But completely low pressure.  And since no one else I know in real life, or blog life is as into National Pink Day as I am, there is no external pressure to make this, be there, go to that, etc. etc. etc.  It is the perfect holiday.  Here’s a sneak peak.

National Pink Day is next Thursday, June 23rd. And to get ready I am writing tutorials, and trying recipes, and making pink things, and planning a Pinkalicious Party for what is turning out to be more than 100 people, and I’m sure I’ll hear back from even more as it gets closer.  And that’s going to be a lot of pink cupcakes and pink lemonade.  And it’s going to be awesome.

What that means for my blog friends is that next week is going to be all about pink.  Just because I like it.  I’ll post a Pink Week giveaway on Monday which will be open all week.  And June 23rd (the actual National Pink Day, and my 2 year blogiversary)I’m having a big blog party.  And you are invited.  I’ll have 12ish posts throughout the day about all my favorite pink things.  It has been really fun to work on and I can’t wait to share everything I have been planning for the past year! (Yep, I started writing things down for this year during my last Pink Week!)

Also, I thought I’d post a little reminder about one of my consistently most popular summer posts.  I photographed this step by step on how to cut a watermelon on a whim last year.  And I was completely shocked at the response.  I’ve left a link on my sidebar along with links to some of my other tutorials, but I know a lot of you read my blog from a reader and probably don’t see the sidebar that often. So, if you are having a party this weekend, or next weekend, or whenever, and you want to know a very easy way to cup  up a gigantic watermelon, check out my How to Cut a Watermelon post from last summer.

    I wish we had national pink day in the UK, it would be so much fun (and now I’m thinking “hope it doesn’t happen and I just haven’t heard of it!”) So, I’m looking forward to the glorious pinkness of the coming week, and it looks like feathers are involved, and if there is something pink and spotty too, I might just have to squeal with excitement!
    Bring it on, that’s what I say, a girl can never have enough pink!!
