Creative Juices

It was such a beautiful day and my creative juices were flowing so I took an afternoon off to paint. I went and bought canvas from the craft store; it was my lucky day because all of my stuff was almost half off! I came home, set up my paints and plugged in my music and got down to work. It took me all afternoon, but they are finished, dry and now decorating my once bare dining room walls. I really like how they turned out!

Both: 12x12 acrylic on canvas
All 4: 10x10 acrylic on canvas

I'm So Lucky.....

These were waiting for me when I came home today. It was a long day- 7 hours of lecture and a two hour exam. The note read "I'm so proud of you my sweets. Good job on the exam today. Miss you! Love Brandon." It completely made my day. He's in Texas until Saturday....can't wait for my sweet boy to get home!

Vegas Videos

Here are some of the videos I took while we were in prepared for the good, the bad and the ugly.

And the real gem.....

Lady pimping herself out for pictures....ew.

What Happens In Vegas....

First drinks of the trip: wild berry margaritas at the airport
1st night in Vegas at the C Bar in the Stratosphere
Bryanna and I sightseeing....

Our Hotel...The Stratosphere

Lunch view from the 108th floor- Top of The World Restaurant in the Stratosphere; shows panaramic view of Vegas by rotating while you dine

Bungee jumping platform was on the 109th floor...saw multiple people jump while we were eating lunch

Our pool

At the aquarium in Mandalay Bay

Wine Rack in Mandalay Bay...yummmmmy

Heading out to see Phantom of the Opera- AMAZING show!!!

More sightseeing...
Pink's Hotdogs- featured on the food channel as a "must-eat" hotdog place- Delicious!

Our answer to the crazy expensive drink prices...

Heading out to the Lion King- also a really great show

Bright lights of Freemont Street (Old Vegas)

All in all, it was an excellent trip....we saw so much and did so much that we are still exhausted and trying to get caught up on sleep. I'm glad we were able to go, but I (and my bank account) are just as glad to be back home.

Backing It Up a Bit...

Let's get you up to speed, shall we? Valentine's day was nice....Brandon made me a beautiful, candlelit dinner, complete with a playlist of lovey dovey songs he picked out just for me. He also got me beautiful roses and made a framed picture page of us that is gorgeous. He's such a thoughtful, sweet guy.

And speaking of sweet and thoughtful, a couple of weekends ago, Brandon went to a golf show in Lansing. He came home with a little surprise for me...actually a big one: my own set of PINK golf clubs! Love, love, love them...and him! I can't wait for it to warm up so we can hit the course...or at least the driving range!

Midterms are over-ish. I had most of my tests a week ago...most of which I knocked out of the park. They split them up for us, so I have a couple this week and next, and then 8 weeks and this semester is OVER...thank goodness. This has been a jam packed semester...29 graduate credits will do that though. Ugh.

Anywho...this last week was our spring break and I took an AWESOME trip....but it deserves it's own post, so that's all for now. :)
