My goodness! What an amazing week back home! Saturday I got to meet up with my girlfriends and check out the opening exhibit at the Science Center of Iowa for Sue, the T-rex! Brittney’s son loved it.. and so did we! We scoped out some of the other exhibits and then the four of us (plus a baby!) crammed into a photo booth to take goofy pictures! You can’t ever pass up a photo booth opportunity! Afterward we had a late lunch at Zombie Burger, which is a must if you ever stop through Des Moines, IA. I enjoyed the Sarah’s Revenge Burger, washed down with a Zombie and a Socket (which comes with a real fruit ‘eyeball’).
The next day I got to hang out with my nieces, my mom, and one of my brothers. I had a blast with them and even got some more ‘tattoo’ work done with my 3 year old niece, Bella. We left there and met up at my oldest brother’s place to watch the Super Bowl, visit with my nephews, and grub down on some Spicy Six Layer Bean Dip and pizza!
This weekend is the Best in the Midwest Tattoo Convention and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve actually never been to a tattoo convention, despite my growing collection of art! A few of our friends from Portland will be there as well so it will be nice to see some people from our OTHER home! ; )
I hope to finally get to meet some of you there, so be sure to stop by the booth and say hello!
