Remember the Picture

In honor of "Remember the Alamo", I wanted to do "Remember the Picture" at the Alamo. I have a picture of Justine and I at the Alamo in June of 2006. I thought, "How fun would it be to recreate the same picture and see how we have changed while we are there."
Enough said.

(June, 2006):

(October, 2010):
What a difference 4 years can make. Justine is wearing blue shirts in both pictures. lol.

Orange Cup

Tonight my family and I walked around this shopping center in San Antonio, TX. My brother Joe and I went to this place called Orange Cup. It serves frozen yogurt. 

I loved everything about it! 

Healthy, modern/clean design, fun, and "green" all at the same time. Joe said that the interior reminded him of an Apple store....this is a good comparison. The worker was so nice and gave us samples to try of the 4 frozen yogurt flavors there. You can add healthy mix-ins with your frozen yogurt or you can get it blended like a smoothie. They had this thing where you can plug in your iPod and play your own music in the store. Joe plugged his phone into it and it worked. Maybe everywhere does this, but this is the first time I have seen it.  I will posts pics later of my own experience there, but here are some off their website. A very cool website too.

A bride you will never forget

Look at this wedding dress. Dramatic. Can't decide if I love it or hate it. It is a piece of art if I do say so myself. More for a runway rather than a wedding in the midwest!

a time to visit family

I am going to San Antonio with my family to visit more family(Thursday-Monday). We will all be together again just like this picture (minus the sledding and snow activity):

Justine (my little sis) and I were down there in 2005 or 2006. We stopped in San Antonio for the night before we went to Monterry, Mexico for a missions trip. I want us to recreate this pirctures to see how we have changed! I think that would be fun.

Hopefully I will come back with fun stories and pics for my blog! Everyone have a good weekend.

For your home

Hello, these chairs are so fun! Pantone color folding chairs. You can find them here. Amazing. I think only designers will get this...but if you aren't a designer and think these are creative and awesome...I commend you!
Where I envision these chairs going:
-an art studio
-a design agency
-a "white-walled" apartment where you can't paint
-as dinning room chairs, with tables that are similar to these:
Cool huh?!?

A new hair do

I wanted to do my hair with a little braid in the front to hold my bangs back for my symphony concert. I watched this video and did the first option (rope braid/french twist) she shows. She makes it look so easy to do. It is really challenging. 

I practiced doing my hair like this all day and it was a disaster. Practice paid off, and this is how my hair turned out for the concert. Pretty darn good I think:
