friday nights :)

friday evenings are my favorite part of the week. and i have a lot to look forward to this weekend.

i just finished aunt carolyn's salsa for tonight's poker party. (i realize that i blog a lot of food on here, sometimes i wonder if this should be a food blog). i'm not sure if the recipe is a sort of secret or not, but if its not...and you want it...let me know. absolutely incredible.

then these two lovely people are coming to clay for a visit (still haven't posted those wedding pics i promised have i...maybe this weekend).

tonight i'm going to stardusters with some great friends. stardusters is our high school bands best of the best. i hear they are playing selections from michael jackson tonight. you know i can't wait for that action! my favorite part of stardusters? they always open and close the program with the song of my favorites!

and just for fun tonight, i'm trying something crazy with my hair. don't worry, this isn't the finished product, just the stage it is in right now. i figure if it ends up looking poopy, i can always just go with my normal wash & wear hair.

tomorrow i'll be watching my alma mater, the kansas state wildcats compete to be in the final four. this is the most excited i think i have ever been about college basketball! GO STATE!

and finally, on sunday we have 24 feet at 5:30pm at the church. more>

happy weekend everyone!

24 feet...what's in a name

24 feet. the name of our monthly sunday night service. what's the name all about? well i'm going to let you take some guesses before i reveal that. 24 feet is one of my favorite nights of the month. we sing, we learn, we play, we eat pizza. this month it will be held march 28th at 5:30pm. i thought it would be cool to share with you the music we are doing this month so you can come and sing your little heart out. (plus i added a couple favorites of mine...i love you phil wickham). so check it out, let the music resonate in your hearts, and we'll see you on the 28th.

**february pic of the day**

check out my facebook page for the new february pics of the day. click here to see more!

when one is inspired...get to it.

tonight the inspiration bug has hit. coming to you super late for me (wow that just reminded me to shut off my alarm clock), but i've always been told that if you get inspired you should get to it, so that's what i did tonight.

i've been working on a couple different projects this week, and i'd like to share some sneak peaks. first off, a 2010 photo journal. i spent some time with an online tutorial taught by one of my favorite bloggers Leigh-Ann. this journal will be used throughout the year to hold extra special pictures in the pockets. my colors were inspired by the tabs that i had bought years ago, 2 urban outfitters bags that i knew would find their perfect place in my life someday, and the hambly layover cover.

my second dose of inspiration came from my favorite art journaling blogger Vivian. She is currently teaching a class called "quiet nights." when i finally got around to registering for the class, i found that it was sold out...such a sad day. so i've been following other people's posts on their flickr group, and decided that i would try my hand at this on my own, without instruction. i hope this doesn't make the polka dot robot gang upset. i truly love the idea. thanks for the inspiration!
