hello weekend!

When the power of love over overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” Jimi Hendrix 

I came across this quote the other day and I can't seem to get it out of my head... I think I might try to incorporate it into my next painting.

Anyway, so yesterday I wasn't really in the mood to write because I ended up not being able to go to my little sister's senior show in Michigan, which I'm still upset about but dealing with.  I spent my morning cleaning the house and the afternoon listening to Jason Mraz while painting birdhouses. I still have a way to go until they're finished but at least it's a start! They've been in my closet for almost a year.

Then my bf, Jeremy, took me out on a date.
We had dinner at Sage, which is one of my favorite places downtown. Their menu is organic and I got an their amazing signature salad with strawberry vinaigrette, candied pecans, and grapes! We also split the grilled veggie and hummus appetizer, which was delicious! Probably my favorite part was the half priced beers :) By the time we finished, we still had 2 hours until the movie started so we drove around town for a little while... Jeremy just bought a 2011 Honda CR-Z hybrid so we needed to put a few miles on it. Then we parked by the theater and walked around Bricktown until we came across a guy playing the guitar and singing so we stopped and listened to him until it was time to head back to the theater. We saw Limitless, which was pretty good... maybe I just think so because I was captivated by Bradley Cooper's beautiful blue eyes!

I started this morning off bright and early with a Reese's Peanut Butter Cappuccino on my way to Amber's house (which is where I am now) to hang out with my favorite little man, Jackson, while she goes to Texas. He drank a little breakfast, then we played for a little while until he started rubbing his eyes to tell me he was tired, and now he's taking a little nap. Isn't he cute?!?!

Now to finish my cappuccino and wait for him to wake up so we can hang out... this afternoon maybe I'll get a little more painting in so I can post pictures tomorrow!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!


  1. Aw, such a cute kiddo!

    That's too bad about your sister's show... :( I'm sorry you missed it.

  2. Those birdhouses are SO cute! I saw some at the craft store the other day and wanted to buy them, but realized it wasn't a practical dream. Jackson is a cutie!

  3. Hello~ I found your blog through my girls (Dreams of Fae and Rainbow Veins) and thought I'd take a peek! I love the Jimi Hendrix quote and think it is dead on. Love the birdhouses as well, and hope the babysitting went well! :)
