Rock Out

The shows are really about freedom, about abandon. You know we're all so bogged out in our daily lives that these precious moments that we have together at the shows are a celebration of life itself...So you gotta throw caution to the wind and really just be free-Jared Leto, 30 Seconds to Mars

Im so excited for the concert this weekend. I can't wait!!! I'm also excited to see these other bands...

It was all a dream

Ever had someone tell you that they had this amazing dream but can't tell you about it because it won't come true? I was told that nope you can still share all the good details as long as you've had your breakfast first. It just so happened that after i ate my apples and cinnamon oatmeal I told my boyfriend about by dream from the night before. To sum it all up I was on the Olympic volleyball team and we won gold!! The crazy part is that I'm not by any means an athelete...I mean I try my best, I get lucky shots, and I've improved majorly from when I first tried playing any sport. Maybe more of an athlete in the making rather than Olympic status...I used to be the girl that was happy enough cheering everyone on. Anyway after our workout, an out of the blue phone call came through from a few friends who wanted to play some volleyball. Guess who's team won the championship?!? MINE!!! Kinda crazy right?

In Full Bloom

This weekend I walked out of the house and noticed the roses had bloomed!!!  How did I miss that...for so long (okay 6 weeks) I was photographing that rose bush waiting patiently for something, anything, but nope during that time no roses.  I did get some good photos of the thorns and beautiful backdrops in the sky and I really did enjoy the workshop with Miss B. 
 This weekend was full of roses though...take a look at my dress I wore out this weekend.  Perfect for these spring days and oh I'm so happy that my bangs are starting to grow out.  I'm glad I tried the bangs but I just don't think they were for me.  

Anyway I noticed it's been a whole year already that I started this blog.  I'm really happy with myself for keeping up with it and I've enjoyed the comments from anyone thats decided to stop by.  Really thank you...and so I've decided that I want to do a blog give away!!!  One lucky someone can win this headband from my etsy shop Sea Of Blooming Dreams.  

All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment by Sunday.  Yup, it's that easy!!!  Good Luck!!!

Home Again

So I'm back in Texas...
Washington was wonderful and I had the best time being with the family. I was a bit sad to leave...just as my one year old niece was warming up to me,
 (I think she can sense my non-motherly skills) 
it was time to head back home.  

We spent one night out on King Street enjoying the gorgeous weather and cute shops.
This sign was in the parking people really do this???

I did get around to stopping by H&M and everything I thought I would love just didn't turn out to be so.  Don't you just hate it when nothing seems to fit the way you would want it to?
Oh well...I did get this shirt from Forever 21 so I'm still happy.

Out and About in D.C.

I'm finally in D.C.!!! We spent the 1st day here looking at all the monuments and I'll say it was quite worth the walk. We walked sooooo  much but it was such a gorgeous day outside I didn't mind. I was a bit sad to see that all the cherry blossoms were sister said it was beautiful just a few days ago...can't believe we just missed them. Oh still look great in D.C.

Music and Love

Don't even think about what's right or wrong
wrong or right
Cause in the end it's only you and me and no one else is gonna be around to answer all the questions left behind
And you and I are meant to be so even if the world falls down today you've still got me to hold you up up
And I will never let you down

Spring Shopping

Ok I know I've mentioned how excited I am to go vist my sister in D.C. which is the number one reason why I'm excited. Reason number two is shopping..once I realized that H&M is close to her home I started searching online for all their fabulous pieces. We don't have one out here in Texas which has always made me a bit sad. But now, all smiles on my face...I really love the Garden Collection that just recently came out.

I'll be bringing an extra bag home and I hope that these lovelies will be in it.
