Yesterday Dakota & I got these friendship bracelets in the dollar section @ Target yesterday. When we got out of the store and opened them we realized they both say "best"...how can best friends BOTH be best? That's probably how friends stop being friends because they both think they're the best. That is probably why they were in the dollar section haha
& my newest painting! I first was just going to paint a scene...then I realized how boring it was so I wanted to do something different & put hands there. The tattoo says "Close your eyes, Open your heart". I love that saying, I saw it once as a tattoo before and so it inspired me to paint it!

I love my dogs although my favorite one is on the right. She keep pawing at the glass door to be let outside but once they see it raining they both backup and look at me like "are you crazy...I'm not going out there". So cute haha.
On another note, I really love blackberries. I would have to say they are in my top 3 category of fruits. Tangerines being first, and grapes being second. AND I really like Shakiras new song "give it up to me". Have a lovely rainy night.

mix them records and what you got...
I'm still mesmerized how great Wicker was. Funny story, one of the band members went to my elementary school. Anyways they are definiately my new favorite (local) band...not that I had one before or anything. I would have to say they are definitely better live than on track, but that's just my opinion..almost like a little review! Bekka & I are probably going to go see them again on the 15th or 23rd! So excited.
(+)So I spent to rest of the night with Joey in Santa Monica at the pier. We got there a little before the sunset, it was really nice. Anyways when we were heading back to the car Joey found a 50 dollar bill in the sand at night time! we were going to go out to dinner with it but EVERY place had a hour wait so we ended up going to baja fresh, which is actually one of my favorite places anyways.
My good friend Bekka Gunther interns for The Signal newspaper and is really into communications! So she gets in contact with really cool local bands and interviews them, with my luck she brings me along to take the photographs! We also had another accompliance Jeff, who videographed the interviews & live performance. Anyways so all I thought, we were going to go to interview the bands and leave, cool I thought, I mean that's nothing different from what we normally do! But instead we got wristbands that let us in backstage, and we didn't have to pay for the tickets might I add. So we got there, heard the first two bands, whatever, then we did a interview & mini photoshoot with Assemble The Skyline (ATS). They were really cool, once we were finished we went down to the stage and watched them perform! They were awesome! I'd love to see them again. Then after we went backstage again and did another photoshoot/interview with The Divine, cool people as well. I've met them/did a photoshoot back in 09 before so it was cool seeing them again! after that we helped cracked some of there glow sticks for there performance. While we were waiting and excited for The Divine to play, this band named Wicker played. They were amazing! I would have to say my favorite I heard that night, they definately know how to have fun and pump up a crowd. Then The Divine played, a really great show...andI'm glad I got to be a part of it. Here's a bunch of photos from last night:
and my photography
