Blueberry's Bakery and Cafe

To know me is to know that I love to watch Food Network. Our life is so hectic that frankly, it doesn't happen as often as I'd like, and many times I catch shows later in the evening after the kids are in bed. I've become particularly fond of a little show called "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives." The host, Guy Fieri, travels all over the country to restaurants that fit this description. Usually, the owner and/or chef of these establishments are doing something unique (or just really, really yummy) with the food they prepare and serve.

I think that Blueberry's Bakery and Cafe would be a fit for this show. It is tucked away in the Woodlawn Shopping Center in old Littleton. On their take out menu it tells you to "look for the FAMILY DOLLAR sign"... if I didn't know better I might automatically walk the other way. But their pastries and lattes are right on the mark. My latest delight was the blueberry turnover. My morning was made on the first bite. My only complaint? I wish I had a bigger stomach. Yes. It was that good.

You'll also find a nice selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads. Tuscan Turkey and Brie anyone? How about the Portabello Wrap? Or maybe try "the best granola you'll ever taste" made right on site. I'm definitely going back for extra helpings here, friends. But don't look for an online menu. You won't find one. There is no website (insert collective gasp here), but you can find them on Urban Spoon and the reviews (like mine) are five star!

And moms, don't think I'm calling it a "dive" for the way it looks inside. This is an updated, contemporary cafe that is kept very clean with a staff that is extremely friendly. Kids can chomp on a bagel while you and your girlfriends chat it up! Hopefully I'll be seeing you there!

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees. Sleigh rides. Visits with Santa.
And it all starts with the Santa Dash for Cash - a 1K "fun run" in which all participants must wear Santa gear! The run is TOMORROW and when you register at www.wassaildays.com you will receive a Frisco Santa shirt, a Santa hat and at the end of the run you will receive a stocking full of goodies including Wassail Cash (the official currency of Wassail Days that can be used at local restaurants and retailers) and a FREE pass for a ½ hour of tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill. What a deal!!

C'est la Vie: The Men In Our Lives Part 2

As promised, tonight's post is full of Father's Day ideas for the man who loves music. I am including links to some pretty standard stuff, but also had some fun digging up a few gems that might interest you! I'll start with my obvious favorite (and very inexpensive!!) suggestion:
Pandora One (better sound, ad free, fewer interruptions, and more)Tickets to a Music Festival (you can find them all at this link!)iPods and iTunes gift card (or docking station - this one got good reviews and has a clock radio)Concert Tickets at Live Nation"Stuff" from their favorite band (don't be scared by the homepage... search for the band you want or browse alphabetically and you'll be glad you did. You'll find lots more than t-shirts and bumper stickers)A vintage instrumentThe Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock and Roll

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!
