Whoops, sorry this is late readers! This might sound laughable to you 9-5′ers but I seriously sometimes forget what day it is – that is unless there is something on TV I don’t want to miss (don’t judge!). Did you all have a great weekend? This St. Patty’s day was so much fun (did you see our photobooth photos from a great friends party? Nice job on that app, Apple!) We all walked home – because driving after having drinks isn’t cool, friends- and watched funny movies late into the morning, it worked out pretty perfect to me!
The weather is turning, in fact, its Bird chirping weather! So, I plan to get outside and enjoy the day. If that sounds fun to you as well, check out our Outdoor Adventures Section! We have some great guides to getting out there and enjoying beautiful Ogden Utah. On Wednesday Mikaela and I will be visiting a few local businesses to discuss some great stuff we have coming up. Can you help us with our Tears foundation goal? Are you interested in advertising and want to hear from us in person? Let us know! We would love to meet with you.
One special note: Check out this cool event the Junior League of Ogden is putting on! Enjoy a first class experience with delicious food, a hosted bar & live music. Plus, do a little “sky mall” shopping before you leave at the live and silent auctions. A teaser of items can be found here: Auction Items to Get Your “Life Elevated” & Feelin’ Lucky?
