Due to financial stain, the planetarium is now closed on Sundays and Mondays. We'll have to go back to see that. They also have several Imax movies playing now, but we didn't go to any of them. Next time!
For anyone not in Memphis, the Palace is a museum now. It was originally built as a house by the founder of Piggly Wiggly. (The last picture explains it all....) It now houses permenant Memphis related exhibits, as well as traveling exhibits. The house still has a pink hue to it, although the stones have faded some. It's set on a huge treed lot in the middle of Memphis (near my home) and is sort of a forgotten about museum for a lot of Memphians.
Check out all the details on their website here.

Here's their new "Poppy" line. I find it fun, yet more classic than some of the other crap they've come up with recently. (For the most part.) (Okay for maybe part part.)
That rhinestone thing at the end though....yikes.

One of the heavy aluminum yard signs. (Note - that's not my address) :) You can get them at Lowe's or Home Depot, or on ebay for 1/2 the price ( I <3>
I'm terrible at picking out colors though. And if it's even worth it. Only $80 or so on ebay, almost $200 if you get one thru a store. Any thoughts on colors? I like the red or maroon and silver. It seems like it would stand out. But then again, do you really want it to stand out? To look at your yard/house and see WOW THAT'S A BRIGHT RED SIGN. :) The black/gold is the standard, like in the above photo. But that combo almost seems like it would fade away and be hard to notice.

Pardon the poorly cropped photo....gilt doesn't let you copy/save their pictures! I had to print screen and I didn't want to mess with cropping.
On Wednesday....7 for all Mankind jeans are on sale on ruelala.com! Women's and men's. I need to buy some actual cropped jeans (instead of doing the rolling up thing all the time) so I'm hoping they have some for sale.
If anyone wants any invite to ruelala or gilt, let me know (leave your email address in a comment) and I'll send out an invite. It's "members only" but don't worry - it's not as fancy as it sounds. :) You just have to be invited and sign up.

What is your favorite type of donut? I could name a baker's dozen of my favorites (har har). I like the regular ol' Krispy Kreme glazed a lot. Although anything with icing, or lemon filling is also great. I don't like sprinkles much though. It's hard enough to eat a donut without getting goo all over my face/hands, I don't need sprinkles falling all over me.
