Life lately

Seeing old friends! My old high school friend Jackie was in town from Texas and I got to meet her adorable (and feisty) daughter Athena.

My dad had his birthday! Fifty years old! We celebrated accordingly ;)

 Lately I've been obsessed with embroidery! You probably noticed if you have seen what I've been pinning on Pinterest. The sweet elephant inspiration came from a t-shirt I saw at a local kids store. So, I took a pic, drew my own design, and got to work! It's been a really fun project.

 The trailer park on the "other side of the fence" at our apartment complex had a brush fire, resulting in a smoky yard, lots of fire trucks, and a melted fence. It brought a little bit of excitement to our day, to say the least!

Recent thrift finds! I plan on painting the cameo portraits a pretty color. No, we didn't get the couch, but I thought it was kind of pretty. 

 I got a smart phone recently (woot! I'm excited!) and I have been having fun with Instagram (@kellyasb86) lately. Poor Kyle was a guinea pig while washing the car.

Today we went to the Boise Farmers Market for the first time this year! Last summer it was a weekly tradition to go. Now that we don't live in downtown anymore we haven't made it out at all.

I guess we've missed a lot. There's some sort of project called "Stay Weird Boise". And I don't know what is going on! These yarn-bombed bikes were on the lower end of the weird-scale. The market was FULL of bikers who had dressed up in crazy attire, along with their bikes.

Haha, I've only seen these guys in San Francisco. Funny to see it here, too! 

 Cool things from the market.

Down an alley way, there were SO MANY surfaces painted! I think it's part of the weird project? They were so fun to look at; there are a lot of talented artists around Boise! 

And a nice, normal picture of the Capitol building.
