WHAT'S YOUR PICK THIS WEEKEND?
Greetings and welcome to GISH PICKS: A GUIDE TO CULTURAL ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES, a free weekly e-newsletter/blog I created as a service to the Houston community in 2003 in which I cull from the loads of activities in our city and pick three weekend events (“PICKS”) to recommend to parents, caregivers, and educators all over Houston. I’m a mom and am always looking for cultural – yet FUN! – events for my family and I am so happy to share them with YOU. My business grows by word of mouth so please enjoy the events and please share this blog. And be sure to tell the organizations you visit that you heard about them from me. And if you’re in Facebooklandia, please sidle over there and like our GISH PICKS Facebook page and share it with your friends and family and elsewhere on social media, too.

Whew! It’s summer, it’s hot, and it’s time to catch up on sleep! “Really?! Are you kidding?!” says you. I am not! I found this fun sleep challenge and thought I’d share it with you – click here for what wise mama blogger Andrea Updyke says. We demand that our kids get enough sleep – and yet, we don’t do that ourselves, right?! Read her article and I think you’ll be moved like I was to follow your own rules and nod off earlier. And if that’s not enough to convince you, check out The Sleep Revolution – it’ll open your mind to the transformative power of sleep.
I’m excited to announce that I created brand-new-and-beautiful t-shirts for my IGNITE YOUR LIFE! art project and community campaign. Check them out here. You can purchase them from me directly for $20/each this Friday night, June 24, at Discovery Green. See below for more details on that cool event and stay tuned for info on other ways to purchase them. If you’re looking to make your own t-shirts, I HIGHLY recommend T-Shirt Works. I was able to observe their entire process, start to finish, and they held my hand every step of the way. I promise you their attention to detail is phenomenal. They were professional and quick and I am really pleased with my super creative and fun shirts!
If you still need summer camp help, many camps still have openings. Click here to access THE SUMMER BOOK® ONLINE: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS, a guide I’ve been producing since 2003. Or you can remember my new web page: www.daycampshouston.com – pass it on and tell your friends. I’ll also be highlighting CAMP PICKS on my Facebook page so be sure to check in there for ideas. My guide is the largest and most accurate online searchable database in Houston and you’re gonna love it when looking for camps! And, best of all, you can surf it from anywhere.
I’m known in our neighborhood as the lady that makes personalized pancakes – the kids get pictures of soccer balls, their initials, fish (for the swim team kids) – you name it, I’ve tried it! I ran across this video for pancake apes and it blows away my sweet pictures bigtime. Enjoy!
