I am so excited for this weekend! It is hot air balloon race weekend here in Reno and the event has become quite like a holiday to us. Today they do the first run and one of the balloons always lands at the kid’s school. It is 6-year-old bliss! We get up insanely early on Saturday to be huddled at the park for the nighttime glow show at 4:30am. Then we share breakfast with the entire town out on a field and touch all the balloons as they inflate for the mass ascension when hundreds of hot air balloons go up right before our eyes. It is amazing and I’ll be broadcasting a portion of it live tomorrow on Periscope at about 7:15am. The event is a favorite of mine and I’m excited to share a piece of our daily revelry with you over there.
To watch: Download the Periscope app, follow me @asubtlerevelry and tune in tomorrow morning to chat and join in the fun.

THE LET’S PARTY PODCAST
Lastly, if you are reading this via feed and haven’t popped by the blog in a bit we had a total makeover last week. It’s the first time I’ve coded a site myself and I just love it so much. We’ve added a lot of new details and one of them is the little tab at the top that says PODCAST. Why you ask? Because we are starting a podcast…
All about parties!
It’s going to be fun.
I’ve been interviewing some of my favorite party loving friends this last month and we plan to launch the first couple episodes next week. I’ll be posting them and you can listen in right from the blog, or follow along on iTunes once we’ve launched.
In related news… I’m planning our next vacation:) HA! Love you all. Thanks for the awesome encouragement via social media and emails this week.
