In case you haven't heard the awesome news...
Dallas and I are moving to Portland, OR!!!
I have decided to become certified in Montessori Education and also get my graduate degree. I'm really excited!! I think moving to Portland will be a wonderful experience. At this time we are planning to move this summer in order to go ahead and get set up before the program starts. That's our plan for now...I'll update everyone as I know more.
On November 22nd I celebrated my 26th Birthday with an Unknown Hinson concert in Little Rock, AR. It was a wonderful time. Dallas and I got a poster signed and our picture taken with the Unknown Hinson. He is by far our most favorite country singing vampire :)
In other news Dallas decided to trim the beard back. I didn't realize how long and crazy it had gotten until he trimmed it. For those of you who are sad about the disappearance of the beard...do not fret. Dallas has already started growing a new one :)
This will probably be my last post for awhile. Christmas time is getting near and then Dallas and I go to Hawaii and then Japan at the end of December. I will definitely be taking tons of pictures and videos and will have a wonderful blog post to share when we get back in mid January.
Take Care :)

First off, let's talk about Halloween!! This year Dallas went as Fidel Castro and I went as Che Guevara. We had a great time! Many people stopped to talk to us and ask us questions. I also got to have a fake beard which was pretty fun :) Best Halloween costumes ever! Viva la Revolution!!
On Friday, November 6th, Dallas played a show at Landry's in Fort Smith with R.J. Mischo. It was a great time. The band sounded wonderful and Dallas had an excellent time. Also, my mom, grandma and grandpa got to come see Dallas play. Everybody really enjoyed the music and also the great food!
Last, but not least. This year Dallas and I participated in the 5x5 competition at The Arts Center of the Ozarks. This year we each donated two pieces. I did photographs and Dallas made some "modern" paintings. The pieces for the show are all donated and then sold off in an auction type style to help raise money for the Arts Center. As you can see by Dallas' photo he gets really excited about modern art :)

This past weekend I participated in a wool spinning class at a local yarn store called Hand Held. It was pretty fun. I learned how to spin on a spinning wheel and also learned a little bit about using a drop spindle. I've included a few pictures of the yarn I ended up making. I was worried in the beginning that my yarn would look horrible, but I have to say I'm quite proud of it :) I am still not sure what I will make with my yarn, probably a small scarf... I'll post pictures when it is complete.
Earlier today I took a few pictures of the piano we have in the living room. Dallas is starting to play really well. I hope to take a video soon to share. For now enjoy a few photos...
