Well, I'm officially half way through my 30's. I'm okay with that. Even though...I still don't know EXACTLY where I'm going in this life...though I'm pretty certain I know where I'm going after :) I thought I might share 35 things-- random stuff -- lets see what happens.
1. Here's the road home to where I grew up...snowed over (Jenny will like this :)
2. I always ask for or make coconut cake for my birthday...though, these cupcakes were the bomb. Strawberry with dark chocolate filling :)
3. I went to a gallery opening tonight of one of my UAFS professors...I was impressed. Really.
4. I want to make art-- for some reason, I'm stuck in a rut.
5. Pinterest is my favorite new place online.
6. If I could do anything...I would be a print/pattern designer and create illustrations and designs for fabric and home decor...Janna Wilson for Target :)
7. I wish I had more time to create for the fun of it. But outside of my school schedule its slim pickens.
8. I love my husband's facial hair :) esp. a tidy goatee.
9. Right now I have 4 commissioned projects to do/in progress :) Paintings. Here's an in progress one...
10. I'm a bad friend. I get stuck in my life and don't contact the outside world.
11. If you don't already know...I love red and turquoise :)

17. I had lots of fun decorating for Cash's birthday on the cheap...this was a fun centerpiece (used plastic shot glasses from the Dollar Tree party section for individual candy serving.
18. I usually always make the family's birthday cakes...even though Cash wasn't impressed

25. I really like decorating with numbers and I love roses.
