last week we/busy bee.

I've been away for a little over a week but for good reasons... I'm hoping to make a move with the blog very soon and just start over new. I've debated making the move for a long time because this blog just hasn't been going where I want it to and I just want to start new. Check back for a new URL. =)

in the meantime we've been up to NO GOOD having fun and enjoying things more.

The past two weeks we:
cooked amazing barbecue for the first time.
went to the water park and got a little red.
found some pretty vintage dresses. (not in my size boo!!)
went to the county fair. *sigh*
had to attend a funeral (never fun)
got together a workspace finally (thanks to my sweet man)
did some logo work for a friend.
(it feels good to finally get to include some design work on my "last week we" posts.)
watched a really great French/English movie called For Lovers Only.
It's on instant netflix if you have it. I love movies like this. Sometimes to watch when I'm alone
and sometimes to just let play while I'm doodling or on the computer.
did a lot of relaxing and just enjoying each other.

well next time you read hopefully it will be from our new home. stay tuned! =)

In Love: Charm School Vintage

I visited Charm School Vintage last year on my trip to Austin and LOVED it.
Not only is it fun to shop there, but their photos they post on facebook and pinterest
are so utterly inspiring. Can't wait to go back!

Day of Adventuring

My kind of adventuring is:
Digging through antique and thrift stores....
This particular antique store that I went to I hadn't been to in years.
They have a lovely array of cameras including a few I'm considering going back for!
They also had a upstairs of all furniture but it was so darn hot with no AC upstairs (and a bit creepy honestly)
I decided to look again on another day.
Trying out new coffee shops/snow cone stands...
Exploring a book store....
And trying out a new recipe of course! I cooked REAL mexican enchiladas
with tres leche cake for dessert. My boyfriend is originally from Mexico so I wanted surprise him.

I had to the whole day to myself (with Nini of course!) and decided to just take it easy and do things
 I enjoy doing. I found a great book that has given me tons on inspiration and motivation
to conquer a few new projects I have in my head. Can't wait to make more things happen.
Slowly but surely I'm making it to where I want to be creatively.  =)

What things do you do in your spare time to just relax and get inspired?

ta ta for now. =)

pretty things.

Here's an inspiration dump for this week.
I'm inspired by so much lately and feel like nothing can stop me or keep me from creating.
yay for that feeling. Forgive me for not having my credits for this post...
I found these beauties in my inspiration folder that I go to when I'm brainstorming.
several of these images i found via maidaes's blog.

Tomorrow I will simply not know what to do with myself. Conrad is with his dad's side of
the family until tomorrow evening and my boyfriend works at 2. I simply do not know
how to cope with that kind of alone time. haha. I really need to get my workspace together
as well as finish up tweaking a few things with my portfolio and my blog. I'm thinking
an adventure to the city sounds like a plan though. I've been dying to explore some new
 fresh thrift stores. If only I could take you people from blog land with me!!

What do you do when you are absolutely FREE? nap? read a book?

How was your weekend? Do anything exciting?

ta ta for now guys.
