on memorial day

I spent time with one of my dear friends.

I took a photos of myself,
while my guy drove the truck.

This is my friend's backyard.

I painted my nails this nude color,
  while my friend planted petunias.

Fun fact: the pink bracelet was made by my mom.

My friend's son took our photos.

This was the view of the city from the freeway.

I wore this belt that my sister n-law gave me.

The blouse I wore was thrifted.

My nephew played with his train, at his grandma's house.
He also wore his T-Rex shirt,
and ate a banana for breakfast.

My nieces played together,
 at their grandparent's house.

They also dumped their toys all over the floor,
and colored their arms with markers. ;)

My guy took flower photos, in my mom's yard.

Yes, some of the mountains still have snow.

It was a very full day.

on wednesday

I wish I wore 1 of these 4 outfits.

Balmain 2012 Spring RTW
Just Cavalli 2012 Spring RTW

However, what I actually wore,
 was a t-shirt & jeans.
Yes, that's me with my eyes closed again.

My niece EJ is fully posing for the camera.

That's my guy with his mom,
 at the airport.

My guy's dad carried my luggage.

Yes, he's nice like that.

I took this photo of my niece Lil bug.

I could have held my nephew JJ for hours,
but I didn't.

I drew this on the plane.

It says: This spring I will finish
my assignment, & go on a trip.

I ate homemade, by my guy, soup.
I didn't eat this exact asparagus soup.
This photo was from a couple weeks ago.
 On Wednesday I ate cauliflower soup

Yes, my life is oh, so exciting.
Yes, I'm being sarcastic.

I got this something idea from Katja at Maedchenmitherz.

Here's something I wore Thursday.
My cousin made my earrings.
My polka dot blouse is thrifted.
 I wore this blouse before, here.

Something I enjoy is spending time
with this cousin. 

  I saw her on Thursday.
She is the cousin that makes jewelry.

The pink thing in my hand is the leash of my mom's dog. 

My cousin made the small peace sign bracelet, the guitar charm bracelet, and the black & silver beaded bracelet. 

My cousin also made this bracelet.
This is my mom's dog Ellie Bee.
I also wore this thrifted purse.

Something I enjoy is looking at my mom's flowers.
These flowers in my mom's front yard.
Here's some more of my mom's flowers.
Something that makes me happy is
the relationship
 between my nephew,
 Speed Racer, and my mom.

My mom & nephew kissing.

It looks like Speed Racer
is taking his grandma for a walk.

Notice the mountains in the background.

 My mom and Speed Racer,
are sitting on my nephew's front porch.

Wishing you a  happy Friday
 with all your favorite somethings! :)

I got to meet my nephew JJ,
for the 1st time today.  :)

He is nearly 3 weeks old.
No, I didn't take these photos.
I stole them off someone's facebook.

I spent all day with my guy.
Sometimes I call him ocean eyes.

My ocean based, art journal pages
quotes from The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen

It says:
Far at sea the water is as blue as the bluest cornflower and as clear as the clearest crystal, but it is very deep, too deep for any cable to fathom, and if many steeples were piled on the top of one  other they would not reach from the bed of the sea to the surface of the water. It is down there where the mermen live. from The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen

frida outfit challenge

Today I'm linking with 
Vivienne from Thrifted Shift which is 
Style Imitating Art.
I'm trying to look solemn,
because that's how Frida looked in the portrait.

Here's the art as inspiration.

Frida Kahlo, self portrait titled, "Time Flies."

To see my ode to Frida blog post from 2011, look here.

To see another blog post where I show my Frida inspired art swap look here
