For those of you that do not live in the Bay Area, every year a local radio station (Live 105) puts on a concert. This year I went with my bestie Sandy and my manfriend Rob. I wasn't as super excited to go as my counterparts...but I really enjoyed myself...and the fried foods and beer I consumed prior (and during) the show! And like any show where Sandy buys the tickets...we had GREAT seats.
The line-up consisted of a local band I don't know the name of (who was pretty good), Broken Bells, The Black Keys, Phoenix, My Chemical Romance & The Smashing Pumpkins. I didn't really know any of these bands well, but I found that when they started playing, I knew quite a few songs from every band!
The three of us started the evening by walking over to a local bar in San Jose called the Britannia Arms Pub. It was a cute little place that is British themed, with cold beer, tasty deep fried foods and horrendous service! But all in all we enjoyed ourselves...especially me!
Once we got to the venue we had some poor guy take some pictures of us after we attempted to do one ourselves...yeah...didn't quite work out!
but even with a third-party taking the photos...look how crazy Rob's eyes came out...it is like he has laser beams for eyes...so funny!
Anyways, we all had a blast and here are some shots of the show...enjoy!
So I got back my adorable Christmas card design from African gray...I love it! While it doesn't quite capture the cuteness that is Miss Bunny B, I understand that really what could?!?
Have you guys ever seen Whitney's work before? She has a great shop on Etsy and she is SOOOOOO talented! I have wanted some custom illustrations from her for all of my furry four-legged friends for some time now, and when I saw that she does holiday card illustrations I knew this was the right time!
She sent me the file so that I can print them myself (I elected this option as I have a print shop set-up in my house) and so I can customize the insides for who I send them to...which was a perfect option for me. So for $30 I got the cutest Christmas card design, plus I can print a large version out and have it framed...a nice piece that I can bring back out each December!
So it started with needing to send her some pics...both pics of the pups faces and their profiles so she could draw them accurately. So I sent here these:
And then I got this...
Which was adorable...but Bunny's coloring was a little off (she looked gray and not the warm browns that she actually is) and her smile was crooked. So Whitney made the corrections in a day and I got the final version...which I love! What do you guys think?
I went to the Weezer concert on Monday night and it was AWESOME!!! I saw them at the Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco and they played the Blue album in its entirety! Actually, they played basically a greatest hits set, took a 20 or so minute break, then came back out and played the Blue Album! The concert was amazing! The Masonic center is a pretty small venue so everyones seats were amazing, plus Rivers came out and preformed songs from the crowd. Here are some pics!
This is a shot of what the stage looked like from our seats. We were in the ninth row on the balcony...just off stage center left.
This was the opening act...the Limousines. They were pretty good.
A blog dedicated to getting my life back on track! Which mostly consists of decorating my little tiny place, taking care of my two adorable puppies (Bowser Butt and the infamous Little Miss Bunny Bear!), refinishing/painting whatever-I-can-get-my-hands-on (usually furniture), and discovering the joy that is spray painting!
