The Boss

My dad, step mom, sister and I drove to Pittsburgh Tuesday morning to see THE BOSS! We tried to get into the pit with our GA bracelets, but we had no such luck this time. Even though we stood for hourssssss, the concert, as always, was amazing.

I love having this tradition with my family. Now we’re just crossing our fingers that he comes to D.C. later this summer!

Happy Friday.

Occasional Symphony presents Halloween… again!

Who remembers the creepy poster I designed last year for Baltimore’s Occasional Symphony?!

They asked me to design this year’s poster, too! How exciting. This year they are playing music to the silent 1920’s version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I opted for a very similar poster so people might recognize the event from year to year. What do you think?

Just as creepy!?

Occassional Symphony_Jekyll_outlines_updatedI certainly think so… **shudders**

Now I just have to think of a Halloween costume!

“Hello? What are you guys doing right now?”

That’s the call we got from my sister on Friday night before she impulsively decided to come home for the weekend so she could go get soft pretzels with the hubby.

Turns out Friday was National Pretzel Day and Emily and Brian LOVE pretzels. Their love of pretzels couldn’t be denied, so Em came home (2 + hour drive), pulled into our driveway, and hopped into our car. We drove to the mall, which is thankfully super close by, with only 3o minutes until closing so this dynamic pretzel-loving duo could get them some Auntie Anne’s. Now that is dedication to National Pretzel Day.

By the way, the got five pretzels. Yes, five.

My weekend was off to an amazing start, obviously. On Saturday we got busy helping my MIL paint her living room. She’s been working so hard to redo this room and the transformation is almost complete!

She chose “Sage Tint” for her walls, and they look beautiful. They especially pop off the bright white ceiling we painted a month ago.

All that is left is to paint the trim, then she can move her furniture back into her beautiful room.

Now don’t hate me Robin, but I had to share this picture of you and Brian. You both look adorable and so happy, even though we were all covered in paint.

Although… maybe I was just covered in paint. You both look remarkably clean!

Once the room was painted, we scurried home so I could clean up and run out the door again. This time, to my little brother’s final elementary school concert.

Elliott plays the violin and has done so since he was 4 years old. I can’t believe how talented he is.

I was super impressed by the entire strings ensemble (not sure if that is what they are actually called…). We celebrated afterward by having a delicious dinner at the Melting Pot!

I’ll save my Sunday project for tomorrow, but as you can tell… our weekend was packed! I am still super tired. Good thing next weekend will be super relaxing…. oh wait. No it won’t! Who am I kidding though, relaxing weekends aren’t my style 🙂

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
