Sweekend and other recents in life.

The first week at my new job went really well.  It was a little overwhelming – as first weeks are supposed to be.  The people are terrific and incredibly supportive.  They may speak in a foreign language of acronyms that I’m still learning, but they’re quick to offer explanations if I ask – or if I have a particularly confused look on my face.  All in all, I’m excited for week two! 


Flowers and a welcome lunch on my first day!

In other news, I washed my car last weekend.  So – of course – it snowed this week.  And a bird decided that the hood of my car was the perfect place to have a bowel movement.  Somedays you’re the bird, and somedays you’re the hood, I guess. 

Speaking of birds, I painted some lovebirds when I met up with some lovely ladies one evening this week to have another Design by Wine experience.  {Read about my first painting experience here.}  I am happier with this painting than I was with my first, and I’d go back again.  Before you know it, I’ll have a gallery.  And the reputation of a wino. 


Speaking of paintings, I finally hung a few things on the walls of my office at home.  We’ve only lived in the house six months; really there was no need to rush into anything. 





I went to the circus over the weekend.  My sweet cousin’s sweet baby turns the big 1 soon, so a dozen of us met up to sing him happy birthday, watch him smear some cream cheese frosting and muffin, and then go celebrate in the big top.

There were elephants and some ferocious tigers.



What are some recents in your life?

  1. I LOVE your painting with the birds sitting on the heart! You are really talented! I keep seeing different friends doing these painting-while-drinking-wine get-togethers. I need to get in on that! (By the way…I love the other painting you have, too, with the birds sitting on the branch. I have a lot of birds/woodsy decorative touches in my living room…I love stuff like that.)

  2. I love your sweekend posts! :) First of all, CONGRATS on starting off on your new job! Change can be SO scary, but it also can be incredibly rewarding. ALSO, I am totally in amazement that you painted that beautiful pic! For Christmas, my brother bought me and Nate tickets to go to one of those wine and painting events, and I cannot wait to try it for myself! :)

  3. Um when are you going to start selling your art? That painting is gorgeous! Personally I’m loving all your new decor! I hope you have an amazing weekend! Eat some chocolate on Vday for me!
