Happy Spring! It’s finally here!

How did your work week go for you? My biggest highlight from this week is celebrating my oldest daughter’s birthday!

Today is Michala’s 17th birthday and we are so excited for her! She has been counting down the days to her big celebration. Ahh, to be young again! I told Michala sometimes I wish I was a teen again– carefree and excited about the future. I wrote a birthday letter to Michala and you can read it here if you like.

We’re having a special family birthday party for Michala. The theme of her party is K-Pop, of course. Michala LOVES K-Pop! We’re making homemade vegetarian Korean recipes and the birthday cake is a delicious red velvet cake (in honor of Michala’s favorite K-pop group Red Velvet).

HERE ARE FOUR MORE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS WEEK:

  • Jordan Peele’s Us movie is out now!
  • Concert Announcement: Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are coming to Detroit in July!
  • Design Core Detroit announces its first edition of “Detroit City of Design Competition”.
  • Red Table Talk Nominated for 2019 Daytime Emmy

JORDAN PEELE’S US MOVIE PREMIERES TODAY!

Are you excited for Jordan Peele’s new movie? Us premieres today and I am looking forward to seeing it. The film stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Elisabeth Moss. I’m actually not a fan of scary movies, but I love Peele’s work so I am making an exception for this one.

Get Out was a phenomenal film so I am anxious to see how Us turns out! I’ve already heard and read many good reviews about the movie. If you go see it, let me know what you think!
