happenings

i thought i'd post a sorta random post this week! i've been busy this summer and with my ongoing recovery from injury, i haven't been able to craft very much, so i have other things going on. here's what i've been up to in july and august!

I went to the Dallas Museum of Art to see the fabulous Mexico exhibit.

One of my succulents started growing multiple flower stalks!!! I've never had one bloom before, so I am super excited for this one to bloom. It will have red flowers!

I had lunch with several friends at one of my favorite spots, Toasted. Their "coma-toast" is so so good and their matcha lattes aren't bad either!

I saw Michael Franti at the wonderful Majestic Theater. He did like half of his show in the audience and I definitely got his arm sweat on my arm

And finally, I saw Lord Huron at The Bomb Factory! This was definitely a highlight of my month. I had missed them the last time they came around to Dallas so I was thrilled to finally see them and they definitely did not disappoint!

on deck for september? i already have gone to a wedding, i'll have book club, a girls' lake weekend, STITCHES!, the dallas greek food festival, the beautiful/anonymous live show, and finally, father john misty at the bomb factory. 2017 has definitely been a good and fun year and that fun is just going to continue right on into the fall. so many musicians i love are coming in october and november and i have spent way too much money on concert tickets, but it's all worth it for good music!
