Shepard Fairey at the Black Book Gallery

One of my favorite things to do in L.A. was visit art galleries. Gallery 1988 had amazing artists and theme shows every month. We were quite obsessed with them before we left. That sort of gallery appeals to me greatly because they fill a niche of good but inexpensive art for our generation.

Friday was the first time we have visited an art gallery in Denver since we’ve been here — I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year. One of our favorite artists, Shepard Fairey, was showing new art at the Black Book Gallery.

Shepard Fairey shared the show with Jim Houser and Even Hecox. Hecox may be a new favorite of mine (first picture).

30 Days of Lists – Weekend Plans

30 Days of Lists

Day 9: Weekend Plans

  1. Zoo! I absolutely love the zoo. We’re going this weekend and we’re getting memberships, too. We visited the Denver Zoo during our last visit and we very much enjoyed it. It’s a pretty nice zoo and, surprisingly, is much better laid out with newer buildings than the Los Angeles Zoo. steph with parakeet at denver zoo
  2. Unpacking. We have so much still to unpack. I fixed some of the drawers in the cupboard in the kitchen so I could finish putting dishes away. Furniture in our bedroom and living room needs to be moved around. I can’t access some of my dresser drawers because it’s pushed up against the bed. The bathroom is nearly complete, we just need to attached a towel rack and a face cloth rack. I don’t even want to discuss the spare bedroom – it’s a nightmare. Also, our office area is non-existent at this point. Pictures coming soon!
  3. Cooking. We bought tons of groceries the other day and I still haven’t made a meal. We went to IKEA last night and opted to eat there because they have delicious swedish meatballs. I kid you not. Delicious.

I think that’ll be about it. More cleaning and vacuuming probably in addition to catching up on some television – who else is watching Suits?? That show is amazing and last night was the season finally.

I’m sorry I’ve only been posting 30 Days of Lists lately. It been a crazy few days of moving everything from the pod to our new home and then unpacking it all. We still have quite a few boxes left to sort through and decide what we want where. In the mean time, here are some – what I believe to be – pretty cool pictures I took from the plane from Jacksonville to Denver.

{I know I don’t normally do this but you can click on any of the pictures to see them larger. I also bumped up the contrast on some of them because the window made them look a little dingy.}

30 days of lists – Goals for the Month

Day 1: Goals for the Month

My goals this month were easy to come up with because we are moving into a new place and a lot needs to be done.

  1. Unpack everything before the end of the month. No unopened boxes unless they are in storage.
  2. Get a job. I haven’t worked since May 4th and I am actually quite anxious to find a place with great pay and benefits that also suits my personality. If it exists.
  3. Decorate the new apartment without buying anything new. This doesn’t include small things like nails or hooks or the like but any new pieces of furniture must be second hand.
  4. Don’t be shy! I need to get out there and find stuff I like to do around Denver. That hopefully doesn’t cost money. At least before I accomplish goal 2.
