....to my vacation. I can't hardly wait to see my family for my brothers wedding and play in the desert and take pictures and soak up some rays. I haven't had a vacation in a while and I feel like I deserve one. And even though I am leaving for bonnaroo only one week after I get back from Arizona, I don't feel selfish at all. I have always worked I. The service industry and my vacations have always been based in the public. Now that I have a new job, I can finally do what I want, when I want. I feel as though it is well deserved. However, i must be honest when I say that since vacation is drawing so close, I don't want to do anything except be outside by the pool and listen to music and take pictures. Maybe read a little bit too since that hobby has unfortunately been put in the bak burner for a while. Anyway, my best friend Miranda got induced into labor yesterday and kenleigh has STILL not come out yet. She is going to be stubborn just like her momma. I knew it from the very beginning. :) Yesterday when I was driving home from work I snapped a few shots that I wanted to share and are just now getting around to putting them up. I hope you enjoy :D
This was taken at dawn yesterday whenever I was bringing my honey bunny to work. (yeah I love him that much :]) the sun was the most gorgeous color red and I was just mesmerized by it. It was absolutely breathtaking :)
this is a picture of the Mississippi River bridge. I thought I would share this with you because it is a HUGE part of Louisiana and it always blows my mind everytime I see it Here are some shots from the weekend:
Rebecca... After a long day of graduation!!
Kayla and Josh
My first vintage furniture purchase... And it is in PERFECT condition :)
...my life is found. Oh incubus, how I love thee. While I was driving, "drive" by incubus came in the radio. Now I honestly can't tell you how much I love incubus, words are not enough to express (let's put it this way it's way up there like on the same level as mac and cheese and dancing the macarena-I'm dazed and euphoric). Music has always been a HUGE part of my life. Not until recently have I started to discover music beyond the realm if popular. I have seriously started to enjoy a more eclectic array if music lately and I'm seriously ok with that :) I don't know why in the world I'm blogging right now, I should be sleeping but I guess I was inspired by incubus :) fare thee well all!
so, after a long shift at work, me and michelle decided to have «crafty sunday» and I must say, it was quite a successful day! I finished up the project that I was working on for my friend Miranda's baby girl, Kenleigh. It took lots of layers of paint and endless time thinking over and over of what indeed would be perfect but I FINALLY finished it. Michelle finished her project that she had been working on, and we listened to some GREAT music and caught up on years of lost memories. I also started on another project for a graduation present for my friend Rebecca and I can't wait until it is finished because it will be äŵëşömë!!!! I'm in a creative mood, sorry :]
So, here are some pictures of what went on today on «crafty sunday» ENJOY! :)
this is what it started out as
and ended up like this:
I love love love what I did with it! like I said, took ALOT for me to figure out what in the world to do with it, but I love flowers and I wanted to stick with what I know :)

Well I just have a few things that I wanted to share with everyone while I'm waiting to eat with my friend Miranda and her grandma. I have some things that I've seen lately that have been inspiring me an I can't wait to get home and paint! Kenleigh's picture (miranda's soon to be bundle of joy) is slowly but surely coming about and I got inspired by a photo that I saw on Elsie cake's website. I have been seeing some things in turquoise that I absolutely love so here they are:
I absolutely love this picture. I saw it at the fabulous Target and I want to recreate that adorable little birdie!
Love this too! (Also at Target FYI)
And last but certainly not least, some photos around Baton Rouge.
I love this place!! (Chelsea's Cafe-their creole stuffed tomatoes are the bomb.com)
My keyboard- I was bored at work today :)
Well that is it for now. I'm thinking about getting Photoshop in the near future so I will be able to do fabulous things with the pictures i've taken with my awesome new camera!!!!! xoTW
