And the winner is...

Three people were able to find the location of Petunia the Pig...she's located at 336 West Broadway in downtown Salt Lake City. So, Cathy, Debbie and Katie - I put your names in a hat and Mark drew the winner...

Hooray Katie! I'll get your stuff to you later this week at work! Thanks everyone for participating - I'm sure I'll do this again sometime soon.

Happy Mother's Day and a Contest!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! (And moms-to-be!) Here's my mom with her Mother's Day gift...a little scrapbook with factoids about our family:

The scrapbook was a fun project I put together with some friends last weekend - a nine hour scrapbooking marathon!

Okay, so time for a little contest! Do you know where this sculpture is located?

Whoever guesses the closest will win a set of handmade greeting cards with some fun extra goodies thrown in. If there is a tie, I'll do a random drawing to pick the winner. Just leave a comment with your guess (or email me if you want your guess to be private: and on Monday, May 19 I'll post the winner! Good luck! (Contest open to US residents only!)

Mark asked me out on a date today - he sprung for tickets on the Frontrunner train, so we traveled up to Ogden for lunch and some window shopping.

He sprung for lunch, too - what a guy! This commuter rail just opened this past week and we both wanted to check it out. It's a pretty sweet ride. We ended up travelling with about 200 members of the "Red Hat Society" - they were almost as rambunctious as teenagers!

In Ogden, we walked from the hub to 25th street, a quaint section of town with various antique shops, cafes and clubs. We lunched at Peddler's, a fun little cafe with a bicycling theme. The tomato bisque was fabulous!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Come back to our blog soon - we're going to have a little contest!
