I Spy - Architecture


Welcome to I Spy.  Hosted by the ever popular and mad, Christy of My Mad Mind fame, and Dazee, of the wild and crazy fame. 

Here's the rules.  I know, I tell them to you every week.  They go something like this.

Blah, blah, blah, 2 prompts, blah blah blah, One prompt changes weekly, blah, blah, blah, this week the prompt is Architecture, blah, blah, blah,  the other is always the same, very popular, Your Choice.  Blah, blah, blah, camera, blah, blah, blah, post, blah blah blah, link up.  Got it?  Good


This is the Stampin' Up! Headquarters.  It is not very far from where I live.  I have always loved this building.  

It has so many cool parts to this building.  At the left, you will see that the 2nd and 3rd floors have little decks out from the door.  On the very right side of the rounded building, there is a huge deck that has picnic tables on it.  Honestly, You have to see this building in person.  It is beautiful.  The photo's I took just do not do it justice. 


Last Sunday, I had my kids and grandkids over for dinner.  We all couldn't get together for Easter.  

I know that Christy is going to say all I think about is food, but honestly, take a look at these shiskabobs that my daughter-in-law Lizzie, and I made.  Oh my.  Can you say DELICIOSO!!!!  We made them on Saturday, marinaded them with a Hawaiian Flavor marinade overnight, popped them in the oven to pre-cook them, and then threw them on the grill for the final flavor burst.  Total F.O.

Of course, I know I've mentioned how much I love my grandkids.  
This is Miss A, age 4, (just a thumb away from 5, her words), on the left, and Miss O, age 5 (soon to be 6) on the right.  They are the bestest of friends.  Miss A was escorting Miss O to her car when it was time to leave.  Love those girls.  

Now please, please, please, with homemade whip cream and a cherry on top, join up with us.  I truly want to see parts of your world.

  4. I don't think I have anything for this week either! Don't tell me off! I'm not really inspired by architecture around here at the moment. If I have an inspired moment I'll let you know. ;)

    I envy your blue skies. ;)

  5. I love architecture and would love to explore this building in person. It looks like it has some really neat features!

    I took a more abstract view of the prompt this week. I'd never have been able to narrow it down to just one building to show!!
