two cool things

If you live and/or are going to be in the Twin Cities metro area this coming weekend, there are two cool things happening that I'm excited about!

1. The Living Green Expo at the State Fair grounds. Believe it or not, I have never been to the Living Green Expo! I discovered that they have a free CF lightbulb recycling drop-off bin located at the expo, among many other awesome things. :) We're going!

2. The Mayday Parade will start at 1:00 on Sunday, travel down Bloomington Ave, and end in Powderhorn Park! I just learned about the Mayday Parade today, but it looks very, very cool -- plus, I haven't seen In the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theatre in a LONG time. (Gigantic, homemade, 15+ foot puppets! They are SO COOL!) The theme for the parade this year has to do with the bridge collapse last year, and how to build bridges within our community. I hope to make this, too -- and I'll take pictures!

Why, oh why, is it only Monday? This weekend is going to be so fun -- PLUS, Dan has a gig, Courtney and I are going to bake cookies, and Dan and I also have a wedding reception to go to!

Hopefully I'll turn back into a food blogger next week. Until then, keep enjoying the Haiti pictures. :)

It's Tuesday, now -- countdown! Do post about how it went, okay? Sounds like a great time.
