Life: Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture

Last month I was fortunate enough to finally be able to cross number 90 off my Day Zero Project. The Hubby, my little Buttercup and I got a private tour of Taliesin West, the Frank Lloyd Wright’s, School of Architecture.  I’ve been wanting to go to Taliesin West since my cousin began attending school there. I was upset that I was unable to attend his graduation because I was too far along with my pregnancy.  We had a few other opportunities to go to events there but due to different circumstances we didn’t go.  The stars finally aligned and my cousin was able to give us a private tour of his alma mater.  I didn’t know much about Frank Lloyd Wright before my cousin started attending the school there but now I’m fascinated by him.  If you have ever been remotely interested in Frank Lloyd Wright and find yourself near Scottsdale, Arizona I suggest you take a tour.  They offer different types of tours depending on what you want to see and learn.  The shelter’s the students use as dorms are extremely fascinating and so is the walk into the desert.  I can’t believe that students actually get used to sleeping out there.  One day I hope to visit Taliesin Wisconsin where they spend the second half of their year at.  Until you are able to attend a tour for yourself please enjoy some of the photos I took while we were on tour.

The school itself is beautiful and the students are amazing.  The are a small amount of students that are accepted into this school every year that get to experience something that they would not be able to do so on other campus. Unfortunately this school might lose its accreditation and it might not be around for future architects to enjoy. Please take the time to watch this video and help SAVE TALIESIN. My cousin’s friend, Pablo created it in an effort to inform the public of what’s actually going on there in regards to their accreditation.

Life: A Hello Kitty Birthday Party

Last weekend we celebrated our little goddaughter’s 7th birthday.  She had never had a party and we couldn’t be happier to be able to do it for her.  We decided early on to make it a surprise party and we didn’t tell anyone in the Hubby’s side of the family.  We were hoping to have a beautiful sunny Southern California day but unfortunately it was extremely cold.  It was so cold I had to bring out blankets for everyone to use.  I know that if my family from Kansas is reading this they will laugh at us but give me a break 50 °F is cold to us.   If you follow me on Twitter or on Instagram you know that I got a cold the day after Thanksgiving.  I wasn’t planning on getting sick and as a result I didn’t have time to finish up some projects I had planned to do.  Without further ado here’s the small party we had for our little goddaughter.

I hope you enjoyed the little party we threw for our sweet goddaughter. It was a lot of work but it was well worth it. One thing I learned during this party was that if I’m hosting I don’t have time to take pictures.

 

{Date Night Fridays} Go Kart World

The hubby and I have never really stuck to the conventional movie and a dinner type of dates. We like to have fun and we are kids at heart so going on a date to Go Kart World just made sense.

This place has a lot of kids during the day but at night you see a lot more young adults and couples. It might not seem very romantic to go to a go kart place but trust me if you can laugh together and act silly it really puts you in a great mood. We have enjoyed this place with my little cousins and on our own. It seriously is a fun place to spend the evening at. It can be a tad pricey if you want to ride the tracks a lot but you can have fun doing a few spins yourself and people watch the rest of the time. I had a blast getting to know the hubby here and can’t wait to bring our kids here one day. I hope you guys give this place a try and have as much fun as we have. Here is the Yelp review.

Note: This is not the only go kart place in Southern California if you live closer to Gardena you might want to check out K1 Speed.

Do you know of any other cool place to go act like a kid?
