Stuff to Do, Stuff to Buy & Stuff to Know

First up...how cute are these??



My friend Deb made them for back-to-school and if you would like to purchase one, please email her at: mama23rogos@aol.com.  She also ships.

Second, my other friend Kathy is putting together a Cubs rooftop event on Friday, September 6th that will benefit Park Lawn School & Residence and Misericordia.  Tickets are available HERE and include food and drink.  I'm told that southsiders are allowed to cheer against their historic rivals.  It's not like anyone is paying that much attention to Chicago baseball right now anyway.  But did I mention the BEER?

Finally, I know many people are on the edge of their seats awaiting the winner of the bit Orbit Gum prize.  I bribed Danny to represent the non-biased accounting firm of Walsh & Walsh, and he did a fine job selecting a winner:

Congrats, Kirby!  As an aside, Kirby is in the midst of a blog reinvention (check out her blog, Kirb Appeal by clicking HERE).  She used to be more of a niche home décor/crafty blogger with a fine sense of humor.  Now?  Well, I think we're all going to see a whole new side of this gal.  Stay tuned!
