Wordless Wednesday

A beautiful day for a picnic at the park!

Wow so apparently I went on a little bloggy vacation. Sorry bout that, it has been DIY central around here (which means awesome new project but slacker blogging). Also, its been raining. Rain is like my kryptonite, in a good way.  All I want to do when it rains is sit on my back porch reading a book, listening to the tap tap tap of the drops on the grass in front of me and smelling that wonderful rain smell.  I have devoured so many books in the past couple weeks!  One of my favorite things to do is cross off another book on my to read list. If you are on Goodreads (and you so should be) you can check out my to read list here.  

Lots of snuggles with my favorite boy//Organizing thread for a big cross stitch project// Yummy Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake//Found an old journal full of quotes I started awhile ago. Decided to add a few new favorites.
New king size bed, woohoo!!// Always have dessert with lunch when you're out with your girlfriends// Lazy bum waiting to go for a walk// In love with this retro fabric from Joann's. I have to figure out where I can use this at in my home!
Cross stitch deer head finally hanging on my wall, adds a ton of rustic charm!// Latte pick me ups in cute Anthropologie mugs// The hardest workers take the cutest naps : )// Finally jumped on the Archetype band wagon and these were my results. I would say pretty accurate!

Linking up here.

Arts & Draughts

Last weekend Sky and I were out to dinner just talking about what we wanted to do afterwards.  We came up with just going to a movie, like we do most weekends but on a whim I looked up the Columbia calendar of events on my phone and realized that an event we had talked about months ago was going on THAT NIGHT!  Incredibly excited we called our friends to see if they wanted to, all we had to do was mentioned beer tasting and they were in!  Hosted at the art museum, Arts & Draughts is an event that combines local beer, art, and local bands.  We got there about 2 hours into the events and hardly had room to walk into the museum, it was packed!  We quickly grabbed a couple of little shots of different beers and went to find some space to stand and take in all in.  There was so much going on!  We decided to do a scavenger hunt through the galleries but since we got there a little late we were unable to finish, apparently the galleries weren't open as late as the event. I didn't get to take many pictures but we had so much fun!  I highly recommend going to one of these if they are in your area, the next one in the Columbia area is May 3.  If you're interested there is more information here.
