Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

Are you doing anything special?

*You could plant a tree, skip a shower, switch to reusable grocery bags, or walk instead of drive.

We had a really fun Easter! It was simple, the weather was beautiful, and we snuggled up on the couch and watched movies. We finally saw Frozen, and loved it! I always love celebrating holidays. 

Did you celebrate Easter?

Life Lately

Two finals down, and two more to go! I have been so busy lately with school, but Jason and I have had some fun along the way. Jason's birthday was on Tuesday, and we spent the night watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and playing games. I gave him his present: The Walking Dead edition of Risk. We are going to play it sometime this weekend.

Also, I have been in love with Catherine Lovatt ceramics, and today my cup came in the mail all the way from Germany! I think I will continue to collect her Serax Family Set.

What have you been up to lately?

Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Franz Kline Corinthian II

Claude Monet Water Lillies

We went to the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas this weekend. I had to go to Texas to take one of my finals, so we thought we would make a trip out of it. I was so happy that we caught the Age of Impressionism exhibition. This was the last stop, so we soaked up every beautiful minute of it.

What did you do this weekend?

Audubon Zoo

I had the most amazing birthday! We went to the Audubon Zoo, and spent the day surrounded by beautiful animals. I am the luckiest girl in the world because Jason went above and beyond to make the day extra special. From waking up extra early to get me a fresh, warm croissant and filling our apartment with black and white balloons, to getting me the most thoughtful gifts. I can honestly say it was my favorite birthday ever.

Also, I just want to thank everyone that called, texted, or emailed me to wish me a happy birthday. My heart is so full it may burst.

What has been your favorite birthday?

Less is more.

Have you ever purchased anything from Aēsop? This is my first purchase and I have to say that I'm very happy with it. They use good, quality ingredients, and it is very aromatic without being overpowering. Also, I love that it is not greasy. I think I will be trying out other Aēsop products in the near future.

I cannot believe that both of us will be 26 this month! My birthday is on the 7th and his is on the 15th.
