1. I found my long-lost elephant pendant from Thailand, it was in my makeup bag this whole time. 2. I was able to leave work on time everyday this week/even a little early on some days…it was so nice. 3. Bruce visited me for the weekend (his weekend: Friday/Saturday) 4. We went to Build-A-Bear in Downtown Disney Friday night where I made Bentley the dragon & dressed him up as the Mad Hatter!
Besides visiting Build-A-Bear in Downtown Disney Friday night, Bruce and I also saw “OZ”. There is one part that I wish they had left out & that they’d lightened up a little on the CG-effects, but other than that it was really good! I liked the pre-Dorothy view, and how they explained why the wicked witch became wicked. It’s much simpler than the reasoning in the Wicked series but it’s believable and it makes her relate-able which I like.
On Saturday we went to the Natural History Museum.
Besides the dinosaurs and the Gems & Minerals gallery; the below room was one of my favorites. I’m not a fan of taxidermy animals being mounted on the wall, but I liked how they had them displayed in this room. The contrast of the industrial white walls and the shadows they cast were just lovely.
After the museum, we headed to Beverly Hills, so we could get some ice cream at Sprinkles. I got mint chip in a red velvet cone, it was really good! We walked around a little bit before heading back.
Bruce went back home last night, so I spent all of my Sunday working on YAM bags. I cut out and started sewing 8 of them. 7 are ready to have their lining put in, the 8th one still has some assembly to be done. I’ll be able to post complete pictures of those next weekend.
