Sunday Sunday Sunday!!!

Sunday’s are honestly one of my favorite days of the week because I reserve it for doing absolutely nothing. And while some people would say that it is a waste of a day I beg to differ! Sunday’s really help me keep my sanity. During the week I work around 45 hours at my job. Going to work at 5 A.M. and getting out around 2. On top of Monday-Friday work I hang out with my friends, do projects at home, and sometimes do all nighters at the bar or club among other things. So don’t be surprised when I say I don’t have any weekend plans because my weekdays keep me so busy. Saturday’s usually contain some sort of activity but Sunday is definitely my recovery day.

This week Friday I’m super excited to see Lisa Lampenelli! She may be my all time favorite comedienne and this will be the first live stand up show I’ve ever seen! I don’t know if I’ll be able to get any pictures or video but I’m sure going to try!!! ALSO I want to make it out to Artprize one last time to see the Top 10 art pieces and vote! You people enjoy the rest of your weekend and get ready for the week however it is you do that!

I could easily spend 2-3 MORE days down there! That’s on top of the 2 days I went! Make sure you make it down! Let me know what you think of my photos! And be sure to share what you liked when you went to Artprize!!!








Grand Rapids: Artprize 2011

Last Wednesday kicked off Grand Rapid’s Artprize 2011. Now on its third year Artprize has proven to bring out people in the area to see all the amazing talents Michigan and beyond has to offer. If art viewing hasn’t interested you in the past or you don’t think it would I dare you to come out and not enjoy yourself! This is so much more than just some paintings in an art gallery. There are giant sculptures, wall sized murals, interactive art, and live art! I could go on and on about it but I’m telling you! If you are looking for something to do come on out and check out all the beautiful artwork! Artprize is only running  from September 21 – October 9th, so get out there and see some art! ALSO don’t forget to register to vote for your favorite art pieces (Link down below). I’ve included a few pix of my favorite pieces below and I’m hoping to make it out a few more times before Artprize is over to bring you some more photos!
