Drive-In Babble On

We totally scored the other night and ended up with a free ticket to the tenth anniversary show for Hollywood Babble On held at the Vineland Drive-in in the City of Industry.
It was great to get out of the house and do something new. Plus, the show was awesome, as always! So grateful for the opportunity to go and for a husband willing to go on a last-minute adventure.

Looking good, babe! Love the flamingo shorts especially.

Dreams DO Come True

Friends, I'm here to tell you that dreams come true! I've wanted to own a Ms. Pac-Man machine since I watched Silver Spoons back in the day and he had his own little video arcade in his house. It was just the coolest thing ever! 
Growing up, I loved going to the mall. But, specifically, I loved hanging out at the video arcade called Gold Mine. Of course it was mainly to scope for cute boys, but the sounds of the arcade still make my spirits soar to this day.
A few months ago we went shopping for a machine. We found one we loved, but wanted to be responsible and decided to think about it/save up for it. Well, we finally took the plunge! This was my face outside the arcade store.
Here's the guy getting our machine ready to go. Isn't it amazing?!!?
Here's our precious new baby in the backseat of our car (don't mind the mess).  
Behold, its glory! While it's not in its permanent place at home yet, we're having a lot of fun with it.
And, my dreams of owning a Ms. Pac-Man machine have come true! Thanks, babe! Love you so much!

So Cute!

We went to visit my brother's family last week and I painted name signs for the kids along with something they liked.
Owen got a Y for BYU, since he's a big fan.
Ava Lou love avocados.
James loves outer space and rocket ships.
And Andrew loves sports! I tried to paint a soccer ball first and it was an unmitigated disaster, so a baseball it was! Love how these pics turned out. So cute!

Baby Pinky

How adorable is this picture my mom sent me? I love seeing old pics I've never seen before. 
Apparently she hadn't seen it before either as it was sent to her by her good friend Sandy (also pictured). Not sure why I couldn't keep my eyes open for the picture, though. Perhaps I was tired from socializing?

Save the Post Office!

Loved this!
I also happen to love sending and receiving mail, so let's all work together to save the post office.

Watch This: Magnum Dopus

We're so stoked to see that Magnum Dopus (which is a documentary about the making of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot) is now available to watch on Amazon Prime!
It was a lot of fun to be on this set and I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

Update: Not only does Keith have an interview in this, I have a very brief blink-and-you-miss-it cameo. How exciting! Great job, Josh Roush! We loved it!

Arcade Sign

Guess who might be getting their own little arcade in their place?? Any guesses??
In anticipation, I found this amazing sign to put up in our little arcade space. Can't wait!!!

I Need This

I mean, obviously I need this bike, right? Or, actually, I think I could do this to mine. How fun would that be?
Love it!

Heart in Motion

OK, so the picture isn't the best nor does it really do it justice, but I am OBSESSED with this piece of art I made this weekend. It was actually kind of an accident and I LOVE it!!!
Getting spray paint to drip isn't the easiest thing, so I'm having a hard time recreating this beautiful piece (also, it's not cut off on the side, the framing just isn't the best). 
I didn't think it needed any extra splatter, but just to test it out I made another one to see how it would turn out. Loving how chaotic and emotional it feels. I sent it to my girl Angie to represent her strong heart (even if it had been temporarily hurt).

First Artwork Sold!

Look at this proud artist! Keith sold his very first piece of artwork - how freaking cool is that?!?!
To be honest, I'm a bit sad about him selling it because I really love this piece of art. It would be even radder in a bigger size - maybe he just makes another one, but really big??

Old Friends are the Best Friends

So fun seeing my girl, Shmeg, this week as she was visiting from Utah!
We met up about halfway between our place and where she's staying.
Super fun to see her, her sister, and her Mom.
Of course we had to have the mask pic for documentation. :) LOL. Love my girl!

My New Thing

My mom turned me onto this super addictive word game called Wordscapes. I'm super into it.
This is the result of our most recent tournament. I took third! Wahoo!

Love This Pic

We had a great time with our friend Sammi the other day at her new place. She BBQ'd up some burgers and had a lovely spread for us.
Plus, she included Sammy, which is always appreciated.

Abstract Painting

My final painting in my Intro to Painting class is this abstract panting I did this morning. I used pink glitter spray paint and a few acrylic colors to create a cylcone effect. 
I love how it turned out!
