Itching to Design..

Lately I have been feeling a little depressed because I haven't been able to design as much lately as I would like.
Instead I have been frying my brain at work in my new position,
which doesn't use one creative bone in me.

I don't know if this is just me needing to start a new little project for our little humble abode..
or what??

I have been thinking of purchasing a sewing machine here in the near future,
even though I don't have the slightest idea of where to even begin,
let alone how to thread a needle.

I have also been imagining fun little art pieces that I could create to hang on my walls.

But more than anything..
I just want to design.

Too bad I am stuck in this apartment for two more years..
and unfortunately clients aren't lining up at my door begging for my design expertise.

I guess I will just enjoy others imaginative minds for now.

Let's just go ahead and discuss my love for John Mayer.
Actually, let me re-phrase that...
Let's just go ahead and discuss both mine and Jon's love for John Mayer.

Yeah you could say we listen to him every time we are in the car.
I'll admit it.
Jon was actually the one that got me obsessed.
I blame him.

I have always liked his music, but that was about it.
That was until we went to his concert last week.
Let's just say he is amazing!
No really, AMAZING!
He is so talented, and incredible on the guitar.
And I'm pretty sure he winked at me.
How did I see him wink all the way from the lawn?
Just trust me, he totally winked at me.

{John Mayer's newest #1 fans}

{Kella & Colten}

{The man himself}

The truth is...
I think Jon had bigger butterflies for him than I did.

24 in PC.

Jon decided to plan a surprise for my big 24.
I typically love surprises,
but I also like to have everything planned out.
{I really think I'm a little OCD when it comes to planning, its that bad}

if you can imagine, it was driving me nuts that Jon wouldn't give me any idea of what we would be doing to celebrate my birthday.He told me to be ready by 12:15pm, and then the adventure was going to begin.
We got in the car and drove..
and drove..

Jon wasn't going to spill the beans about anything.

He then started saying things that would throw me off a little.

"You are going to die laughing"
"You're going to be a little scared"
"Hahaha.. I can't wait to see you expression"
"I can't wait to see how nervous you are going to be"

At this point I was freaking out! I was telling Jon that I wasn't going to do anything that I didn't want to do, which made Jon just laugh harder. I was no longer enjoying the suspense, and only became more and more anxious.

We then arrived to PC,
parked the car,
and started walking.

I couldn't help myself, I just kept looking around waiting for someone to jump out and attack me. It's probably a good thing I'm not normally overly paranoid, or I really would need to be put into a straight jacket.

We then walked into a little mexican restaurant called "Baja Cantina", and waiting for my arrival was my cute little family.

S U R P R I S E!!

Jon had set up an entire day for us to spend in PC with my family. Not that my family lives far away or anything, but its always fun when we get together, and Jon knows how much I love spending time with them.

The Birthday Celebration started off with us stuffing our faces with some good grub.
After, we went and did the Alpine Slide & Coaster.
We then finished the day with some good old shopping.
Oh how I love the PC Outlets.

{I was so sunburned that my eyes were even puffy. Good look, I know}

{I didn't realize I could go any faster, so I was kind of holding up the line.}

Jon had planned the BEST birthday.. and he knew exactly how I would have wanted to spend it!

Love me some Ruche.

I really need one of these adorable necklaces from Ruche.
They are just too charming to pass up.
