Birthday Luau/BBQ

This weekend I went over to my friend's double-birthday Luau/BBQ.  I had on some sunscreen (thank you Deanna!), but I left feeling cooked anyway.

The party was for Deanna and Jason Lazarus, since their birthdays are pretty close together.  Deanna is working  to get her own blog up and running, so stay tuned for updates on that.  Our friend Cherry (blog She Knits in Pearls) was there as well and helped me out with my upcoming interview at Chronically Vintage by snapping some photos of me.

Deanna made a badass horseradish dill bacon burger!  I brought some pork and salmon lau lau as a side dish.

It may be hard to imagine, but it was a hot 88-90F day with a whisper of a breeze here in Fairbanks, Alaska.  If you're watching the news, this was the day before all of the forest fire smoke started to roll into town.


  1. You look terrific! That is such a great, curve flattering dress.

    Oh, that's no good about the forest fire smoke! We inevitably get quite a few fires (of various sizes) here in the Okangan each summer and it just wouldn't feel like the season without that telltale scent in the air. I hope that it's not a serious fire and that your town/home isn't in danger.

    Have an awesome first week of summer!

  2. There are a bunch of fires going on right now. Part of Nenana is starting to be evacuated (~50 miles southwest of us), there's a fire out near Delta Junction (~100 miles southeast of us), and last night a small fire started out about 10 miles north of Fairbanks. We need more rain!
