Art & Architecture & Cans

So, I helped with the judging of our local Canstruction competition today. It was pretty interesting and reminded me of Kendall and her love of art and budding love of architecture as well.

It's a neat concept- structures built out of food cans and food items (non perishable) by architect firms. They can only use minimal other items. When the competition is over, the cans all go to the local food bank.

Here were my favorites from the Pensacola competition:
Seville Quarter Fire Truck

Sushi Rolls (seriously, how cute is this!)

Cheeseburger in Paradise (with fries and a drink!)


  1. The cheese burger is my favorite, so clever!

  2. the sushi is so good! proud of you for being a judge. Maybe next year i can help too!!!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
