today i'm just feeling thankful for all the sisters that God has given me along the road.
ps- that was me about three years ago, wearing the funny white dress..

hearted :: frontier rukus

well i usually chat about things that i heart that are visual. and well i guess these guys are visual, you can see them after all, but their music is what i love lately.
i actually saw this band on friday night, and it was one heck of a show. they played for 3 hours, and every song was a hoot-a-nanny good time. one dude wailed on the saw as an instrument, and there was banjo playing and foot stomping...
what's better? they are from michigan, my home town :)
so they had things in their lyrics that only us secret michigan folk knew.

made me miss home, just look at the picture of them, screams the mitten state.
anyways, check them out, you won't be disappointed.

how do you do it all?

work. life. balance.
those three words have never meant more to me at any other time in my life, than they do now.
i feel really excited about the different paths i'm taking. the new people i am meeting, the way I get to create and be inspired....

but then again, i also love my husband. i love that we can talk about anything, and i love that its nice outside, and a walk with him would be far greater than any new design i create or how much money we are saving for vacation.

last night i feel like we kinda got it... we walked, we ate ice cream, I got to take that picture of that sweet bike, AND we were able to work and assist eachother in our little projects.

but i know not every night will look like that..
how does everyone do it? love your family well, and love your job?

work can be fun

we're having a women's forum again this Saturday and I was asked to make some little logos for the little connection groups that we will have available for the women of our church.
it was a fun little project.
my 9-5 isn't so bad :)

FUN 100%

i've been wanting a weekend like this for a long time. it consisted of fun, 100%
I got to play ski ball with this lovely lady (she's way better than me):

i got a bunch of free clothing from a naked lady party ( if you don't know what that is, its not scandalous, promise!)

i even got to randomly learn how to play the Marimba with some friends of mine.

and guess what? the weekend isn't over, and its beautiful outside today, and we're getting with some friend to watch some playoff basketball.
what could be better?

i am not amused

my alarm has lied to me.
it has woken me up at deceiving times for the last two days. what i thought was going to be a delightful wake up call at 7:20 am this morning, really turned into me being awake at 6:48 right now, fully showered and ready to go.

gah! technology, how you slay me.
hope that the day is going better for others.
peace, love, and chucking alarm clocks out windows.

hey wind, stop blowing, and skies just stop clouding ...
no?...i guess i'll just have to stay inside and drink lots of these and be okay with it.
but seriously portland, we need to have a talk soon. i don't want to have to break up with you because of a silly thing like weather..

its bugging me

its been bugging me lately that i haven't had any time to just create for creating's sake. silly me.
so i made this weird grasshopper thing. not my personal favorite, but mine none the less!
i aim to spend this weekend squeezing my cat and my husband, mostly at the same time. and also resting...taking some snoozers, watching some tv, drinking some tea...being Lisa, because she got lost in the busy for a second.

i also get lost in this look at me, look at me blog culture sometimes. does it make sense? I mean really...

i heart you tulips.
