Last weekend Ryan and I went to the Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art, and to the Kimbell Art Museum. They were both really neat museums. The modern art museum was unfortunately partly closed because they are installing a new exhibition. And it just so happen that the one piece in particular that we wanted to see was in the section they had closed off! That was a huge disappointment! The artist that we were interested in seeing is a man by the name of Ron Mueck. He is a phenomenal ultra realism artist. He captures minute detail of the human body and does them in all different scales. We first saw his work in the Denver art museum and were excited to learn he had a piece here in Texas. The old lady is the Ron Mueck we missed, we will soon be back to check her out.

Central market is amazing! If you have not been, you really need to go. It is definitely our favorite place to shop for groceries. We went today and bought some herbs to start an herb garden. Its really not a garden, its more like a small trough with a few plants in it, but space is limited. We planted basil, and two different kinds of sage. We hope to use these in some nice Italian dishes.

My mom and Janelle have been asking me to send some pictures of our new place and every time they ask it hasn't been picture worthy. So heres her big début. Its a cozy little one bedroom one bath located right across from the Galleria. On a clear day we can see downtown. We are 15 from downtown, 25 from the airport, and I can throw a rock to work.
