Just checking in

I know it's been forever since I've posted, but I've been super busy preparing for my Kenya trip! I've actually been doing a lot of designing for 2 fundraisers we have tomorrow. One is at Yogurtland. If you live in Dallas be sure to come eat some fro yo in honor (and to support) of the Kenya 2 team! The second fundraiser is a party/house show.

We'll be selling sweets there and I've decided to try and make these
Perfect Lemon Bars
Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
There's a good possibility these will also be available.
Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting
mmm Don't they all look amazing?!

I'll try to post pictures of everything after the fact, but until then you can drool over the recipes.

Oh, and don't forget to check out what I've been posting on Jambo Kenya!

Break the Heat!

As everyone knows, it's Hotter than Hades here in Texas this summer. Every time I walk outside I feel like I'm walking straight into an oven. My main remedy is to simply stay inside as much as possible. And, of course, drink ice cold diet coke! Even my pool is to hot to swim in. It feels more like a bath tub than a swimming pool.

I came across an article via A Cup of Jo this morning listing 10 Amazing Public Pools. As I browse the photos I'm instantly in another place. One where it's not one hundred and fifty million degrees outside.
Wouldn't it be lovely to spend your summer frequenting one of these gorgeous pools?! My only chance at this dream is taking a drive down to Austin to play at Barton Springs, a 1,000 ft. long, natural spring fed pool where water temperatures rise from 68 to 78 degrees in the summer. 
Now, I'd say THAT'S a way to break the heat! Last-minute road-trip anyone?

It's official, the Kenya 2 Team blog is up and running! I'm going to be in charge of maintaing it and I'm very excited to have that job :-)

The official name is Jambo Kenya!

I would absolutely LOVE for you to follow along with our journey. Don't worry, I'll still be updating love, jules.

The reason we named it "jambo kenya" is because "jambo" in swahili, the main language in Kenya, means "hello".

So, hey, come on over and say Jambo!
