i want you to know you don't have to.


my mom and a good friend of hers came over to dallas on saturday for a little day trip.
we did some shopping over on knox/henderson.
i got re-inspired on my furniture kick.
here are a few things for my dream living room:
the gracie sectional. must.have.it.

jcpenney representin!

this art is titled, "someday". how appropriate.

i don't think i can explain what a Barbie girl i once was.
our daughter will have Barbie art in her room one day!


Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. 
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me - put into practice. 
And the God of peace will be with you.
Phillippians 4:5-9
reading this calms me down.

a night without a cell phone

T and i decided we need one night a week without our cell phones.
last night, we went to the nasher sculpture center.
check out their site - they have some cool intro animation with several of the sculptures.
it's free every thursday evening through july.
it was incredible.
pablo picasso
my absolute favorite.
"walking into the sky"
jonathan borofsky
when you first walk outside, this is the first thing you see.
it was unbelievable! it is huge.
here is another angle.
T accidentally called it "walking into heaven".
i love that title.
dallas museum of art is right next door.
we're going there on our next night without a cell phone date.


dreaming of revelry

i miss the honeymoon.
decided to look through some pictures since i was feeling not myself.
i feel better.
and need a vacation.
vegas in 3 weeks!


songs of my summer:

click to make it BIG so you can read.

if someone wouldn't mind making me these,
that would be grrrrrrrreat.
we are off to w-town for a little grillin'/fireworks action tonight.
 hitting up eagle mountain lake for the 4th.
we'll be on a pontoon boat. 
be J.

Happy July 4!!!
