Legos and Flowers

The way to this woman’s heart? Legos and flowers from my husband!

I’m still getting use to having a real commute to work versus driving five minutes down the road. How does Nick help me unwind? He buys me two sets of Legos and gorgeous flowers. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my job. I just don’t like being stuck in the car for big chunks of time. But Nick knows exactly how to cheer me up.

Rawr!

We loved building this T-Rex with moving arms and legs and a big ol’ chomping mouth. It was fantastic.

The next adventure was putting together Shelob, Samwise, Frodo, and Gollum! So amazing.

Here is Shelob next to Aragog (from a Lego set Nick got us a few years ago for a Harry Potter set).

Those Lego fellers know how to make an amazing toy. Enjoy!

Fishing pool is nice and cool

Save the day, Sam!

Shinies

Yesterday, Nick and I went to the Dallas Arboretum with family and saw beautiful flowers, fantastic sculptures by Chihuly, and enjoyed surprisingly pleasant weather.

Here are some of the things we got to enjoy!

I love glass art. I got to sit in on a glass blowing class while in college. I have the upmost respect for anyone who works with glass as a medium. It is amazingly difficult looking, but so unique and georgous.

I love the tall yellow one.

The flowers were of course, bright and colorful and great. It was an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday in Texas before the true heat rolls in.

A Little Floral Photog

I’ve always been interested in photography. I have a fairly nice digital camera which I bought to use on our honeymoon in Hawaii. When I say fairly nice, I mean I’m no photographer, and it makes the photos I take look nice.

I’m super excited to delve into the wonderful world of photography. My next splurge in a monetary sense will hopefully be toward an SLR camera. I have no idea which one to purchase, so lots of research will start soon…I’ve just been procrastinating so far.

Here are some photos of the amazing flowers that were everywhere in Kauai…I miss it so much!

I love these.

Seeing such amazing flowers everywhere was mind blowing.
