Butterflies:Picture update

The weekend we got Honey, Terrell and I drove up the coast and spent the day in little beach towns on our way to a friend’s birthday party (she lives in St. Mary’s GA near the Navy Base since her husband is on a submarine)

Stairway in downtown Amelia Island

Weird little Shrimps are painted all over town

We had lunch at a Cafe on the water and couldn't pass up the goofy photo op on the dock!

If I showed his, I have to show mine....thus....my goofy photo!

That same night we brought Honey home....

The next Saturday we took Honey to her first concert...Rickolus had a free CD release show.

Here’s a video of Rickolus…he’s got a great Indie Rock sound and he’s from Jacksonville.  We enjoy hearing him play and watching his music gain popularity over the past few years.

Then the weekend after that there was ANOTHER free concert at Zombie Bikes, Astronautalis was in town and had a concert in the Freeebird RV that he and friend Blubird are touring in.  It was a strange show, we’ve seen him 3 times prior to this show and this was by far the strangest.  It was BYOB or $5 to drink from the keg.  We brought our own and danced and sweated our butts off in the parking lot.  It was a great night.

Also Astronautalis is a great performer with his music being a mix between Hip Hop & sort of Shoegazer Rock.  He’s hard to explain, I’ve used the term Intelligent Hip Hop before, I mean who else have you heard sing an amazing song about the Battle of Trenton?  He was opening last year for Tegan & Sara and is gaining more fans every time we see him.  I love that he’s from here because he plays here just about every return trip home!

….and there you go….an update of the past month and a week in pictures.  I wasn’t very good at picture taking.  I usually take many more in that time frame.  I will be trying to improve on that and have many more interesting pictures than what I currently see….which is a metric ton of puppy pictures.  🙂

Butterflies: Picture Post

A peak at my weekend:

* Little pigtails on Friday (or the day my contract ended short!).  I knew the boredom was short-lived.  The job’s workload was getting thinner and thinner…..and they cut my contract short. Blah!  But better things are to come of it!  I know it!!! 🙂

* So a little drinking commenced to drown my sorrows….I had two lovely men joining me.  Chris is a now former co-worker on the left and he’s waiting for his shoe to drop now too, they let a few of us go and kept the rest, Terrell of course you see a lot in this here blog, my wonderful husband.  They were my drinking buddies along with my sweet friend Emily, she owns the little speakeasy we were drinking at.  The inside of Underbelly  is small and quaint and this was taken in the “backyard” which has a treehouse for the DJ and fairy lights.  It’s SOOO cute!

*Saturday we got up and went to the Riverside Arts Market (known as the RAM), we took our bikes and met up with our friend Heather.  She’s big into bike riding and has been trying to get us to join in.  We brought our bikes and attempted a ride.  We really only got about 8 blocks away.  I can walk til the cows come home but need to work on my bike riding skills…I was poor biking companion and was out of breath and red in the face just a few blocks into the ride.  So we took a break, then rode just a few more blocks to Mossfire Grill and had lunch (and T & H had a beer, my red face had water!).  We then took a visit to her favorite new store Zencog so that she could get the new handlebars she bought put on her bike and then we hung out at her cute little apartment out front working on the bikes…..well, they did, I turned on the music and lounged on her couch with the door opened occasionally stepping on the porch to talk to them.  It was a wonderful day.

*Sunday we drove down to St. Augustine to spend the day with Terrell’s family.  His Aunt and Uncle were in town from Michigan.  We drove them out and walked around the Seafood festival and had fun wandering through the booths of Arts and Crafts, but really we stayed away from the fried foods and came home to grill out a steak and some chicken breasts.   I snapped this photo of Terrell and his Mom.  Posed pictures of them never turn out well.  One of them is always making a strange face, this picture captured their relationship so nicely.

I got a new camera app on the iphone, the Hipstamatic….it gives the photos different washes of vintage looks.  I over did it this weekend and hope you don’t mind that ALL the pictures look like this.

Hope you all had great weekends.  What fun kind of trouble did you get into?
