We’re Fans of the Seattle Seahawks

HOBviously. There’s kind of a big game on Sunday and it’s causing a divide between my co-workers and I because naturally I’m repping Seattle in a 49’ers area. I may have moved here, but I wasn’t ever going to convert over. What I love about the Seahawks is that our fans are insane, but they’re some of the best fans you’ll ever see. Our players are incredibly involved with the Seattle community and because of this, our city has so much love and pride for the team. That…and we’re kicking butt. For my favorite Seattle readers, here are a couple of videos to get you excited for this weekend’s game.

Make-A-Wish Kid will see San Francisco Transform Into Gotham City

Five year old Miles in in the battle of his life against Leukemia. Through the Make-A-Wish program, they have recently granted him his of fulfilling his life-long dream as his favorite character Batman! Next Friday November 15th, the program organizers will transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day with thousands of volunteers who will be playing along to make his dream come true. I wish I could see this in person! This is the sweetest thing I’ve heard since last week (this is a late post) but Bay Area readers, will you go check this out for me?

Along with a grownup Batman sidekick, Miles will get a call from the police chief and jump into his very own Batmobile to defend the city against some of his fiercest foes – including the Riddler and Penguin.

Make-A-Wish Bay Area describes the plot line of the day:

After rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batman will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a call on his batphone to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batman’s help. Why?

Because the Penguin will be kidnapping a famous Gotham City mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!

After catching the Penguin, Batman will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of Gotham City will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!

The Short Game

My brother’s friend recently worked on a new piece called “The Short Game,” which also happens to be the first documentary to be released on Netflix. To sum it up in three words: Kids, golf, adorableness. A group of 7-year olds are highlighted as they prepare for the World Championships of Junior Golf. My take on it is that it will be somewhat of an extension of those AT&T commercials with the kids we love so much. The documentary was a winner at this year’s SXSW and will premiere on Netflix on Thursday, December 12.

Wengenn in Wonderland


Since this came out last week, friends of mine have been asking me left and right if I’ve seen the “cutest baby post ever?” to go viral. I didn’t have much time to post it until now, but while I am aware of the adorable Wengenn, it’s important to note that his mother Queenie Liao, a freelancer and mother to three young boys, was inspired by another artist that created these “dreams” once before. Does anyone remember my post of “Mila’s Daydreams” from back in July 2010?! Yeah, that was a long time ago.

While this isn’t the first we’ve seen of the dream settings, we think Wengenn is awesome and these imaginative dreams are definitely 10x better than the ones I’m having as a 20-something so… do you, Wengenn.

Halloween Costume For The Win

Is this not the best thing you’ve ever seen? The best part about this is that it’s completely DIY…granted DIY for kids, but I’m sure you could turn this into a costume for an adult if you wanted to. For full details on how to make this exact costume, click here.

Kids are already adorable on their own, right? They actually could literally do nothing and still have people swooning over them. Well, clearly in the fashion industry, the level of cuteness for a well-dressed child is much more heightened. Who could ever forget the child style icon Aila Wang, niece of Alexander Wang? Aila, however, isn’t alone. She’s got clones and you can find them on a new Instagram called FashionKids.

The Instagram profile based in Brazil has garnered 1.3 million followers and offers up your daily dose of cuteness. To learn more about how the page came to be click here for the original post on Fashionista.

Because this is the most adorable thing I’ve seen in a long time – a mother and daughter dancing to Beyonce’s “End of Time” on Ellen.

The Cutest Seahawks Fan We’ve Ever Seen

Meet Kalee Buetow. She’s three years old and is being called the tiny encyclopedia by my former local news station – Komo 4 News. Even though I claim to be a fan of the Seahawks, myself, there’s no way I could ever name names or positions or numbers. So basically, this girl is already infinitely awesome. To watch the adorable story on her, click here.

Sibling Love

I believe this letter of a brother writing to Santa wishing the kids at school would stop bullying his twin sister Amber went viral last week, but I finally had the chance to watch the story featured on Good Morning America and it nearly brought me to tears. First of all, these kids are just eight years old and the fact that the brother is willing to give up all his Christmas presents and everything else so that his sister can get everything that she wants is the sweetest thing ever. Siblings rule, basically.

Not only did he wish the bullying would stop, but that his sister Amber would be able to meet her favorite band – Big Time Rush. Dreamboats! And yes, that wish came true.

A Collection Part 38

Happy Mid-September everyone!

It’s amazing how quickly this year has flown by. Even though I’m about to embark on my second year out of school, there’s a part of me that still wants to follow suit in that pattern. I started my first job at the start of fall one year ago and now one year later, I’m doing the same thing again. There was something about the new school year that I loved and it wasn’t just that I had a new set of classes, a new wardrobe, or that I was one step closer to starting THIS current life, but it was the idea of starting the year with a fresh slate – wiping everything clean, getting rid of the old and progressing towards the new. That might be one of the reasons why September is considered more of my new year than January. I always like to start Mondays with reflective posts (besides Wedding Mondays!) so here’s A Collection for you :)

Aila Wang Does Fashion Week

Aila Wang has made her appearance at Fashion Week again and as always, she continues to be the best dressed out of anyone attending. Why can’t we all just be Aila? She is easily the best child in the entire world. A free ticket to fashion week…an uncle like Alexander Wang…we wish we could be a part of this.

Cuteness. This girl is going to be gorgeous when she grows up.

Yung Lenox

This post was written by Cameron Deuel

Alive & Well, Seattle’s premier skateshop quietly tucked between Babeland and Honey Hole, currently has one of the most unique art installations in the city. Their “Parental Advisory” display features artwork by Yung Lenox, a second grader who specializes in paying homage to classic hip hop album artwork for such titles as Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, As Nasty As They Wanna Be by 2 Live Crew, and Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. He also takes on Black Sabbath, Slayer, and Black Flag, as well as a print of Morrissey entitled “Uncle Moz”.

Based on the video below, you may be led to believe that Lenox is quietly doodling imaginary creations, rather than laboriously taking on intricate rap culture touchstones.

Lenox’s father, Skip Class, is attributed with having a large influence on his son’s artwork.

As Skip said to The World’s Best Ever back in May, “He is my son. I am his dad. If I watch cartoons then he watches cartoons. If I eat pizza then he eats pizza. If I listen to obscure 90′s Memphis rap tapes then he listens to…..you get the idea.”

Chances are pretty great that Lenox’s artistic trajectory is just starting to take off so you would be wise to keep an eye out for his name in the future.

Lenox’s artwork will be up for the rest of September. If you can’t make it out to Alive and Well, check out Yung Lenox’s work here.

Mind Blowing Cover of the Week

I don’t know if this is embarrassing to admit now (it probably is) but 5 years ago (yeah, when I was 18) Jon and Kate + 8 was one of my favorite television shows. The kids were adorable. Jon + Kate were sort of endearing even if I didn’t always agree with their parenting – but seriously what did I know? It’s amazing to me to see how much these kids have grown up! I’m so curious as to how their lives are now without all the cameras and I really hope that at least for the kids’ sake that their parents can be on cordial terms.
