Over spring break (like 2 weeks ago), my mother and I made a trip down to San Diego (I hope you are pronouncing it in your head like Will Farrell does on Anchor Man… because you know I am!) for some R&R. We went to our favorite resort, Paradise Point. Continue reading →
My friend, Carlotta, suggested that I write about my wedding experience to help others who will eventually go through the same struggles I am facing. So, here I am. I think, at least so far, that finding a venue has been the most stressful part of planning this wedding. I gave myself a month to 6 weeks to find a venue, and luckily I accomplished this goal. Here are my tips, I hope they help.
Hi, all! I haven’t been writing for a while, I know. I’ve been a bit preoccupied working 24/7 (writing lessons all day everyday makes me really cool right?). Don’t become a teacher. Anyway, on a better note, I got engaged :)) Continue reading →
Hi all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I just auditioned for the voice and wanted to write about my experience so other newbies would know what to expect when they went.
First of all, I arrived 30 minutes before my audition time and there were already hundreds of people in line. The two people in front of me in line were nice enough to talk to me and adopt me into their group for the day. We waited outside in line for about 20 to 30 minutes (in the shade, thank goodness!), and then we waited inside for about 20 minutes until we were sent to the main holding room. Continue reading →
This Halloween is the first Halloween I didn’t dress up in years (unless you count throwing on a Batman cape for school), and I’m not gonna lie… it was nice. Every year I’d have to think up costumes, spend a bunch of money, and complete a bunch of DIY stuff for it. Don’t get me wrong, it was fun and the costumes were awesome, but it was tiring too. This Halloween I ended up making a pumpkin pie from scratch with Ban instead. I used a recipe from the Food Network and it turned out pretty great!
Day 2 in San Francisco was race day! We got up bright eyed and bushy tailed-haha let’s not kid ourselves, I hate mornings! Aiko and I posed for a pic right before we lined up for the race though. Did I mention the race started at 6:30 freaking AM???!!! What world are we living in?!
There were cheerleaders and music and people cheering at every half mile to a mile! It was one of the most amazing, well covered races I have ever experienced! Continue reading →
Last weekend my bestie, her bf, my bf, and I all took a trip up North to San Francisco so that Aiko and I could run the Nike Women’s Half Marathon with my other bestie, Maggie, and our friend Mary. We chose this race because you get a Tiffany’s necklace! Who doesn’t want one of those??? I have only been there once when I was like, 2 years old so it was pretty exciting for me. Also, Ban has never flown before, so it was great to see his excitement and enthusiasm for the sights he saw when we were thousands of feet in the air. Here are some of the experiences we had:
Ban’s picture for his first plane ride that he really seemed to enjoy!
Welcome to what, or should I say who, has been keeping me busy! Sorry I haven’t been on in a while, it’s been craziness with teaching and all! This sweet little girl hasn’t been helping me either, but that’s okay! Esteban’s parents found her in their backyard and he decided to keep her. We are co-parenting kind of, as in she lives with him and I visit as much as possible because I am obsessed with how cute she is and because I love animals. Duh. (please forgive the run on sentences!) She’s about 3 to 4 weeks old the vet thinks, and full of fleas but we love her anyway! She has 8 claws on each front paw so she’s poly dactyl! So cool! Esteban named her Digit because she has so many claws.
I was so overwhelmed buying all of the supplies for her as I am a dog person and have never owned a cat before (my dad’s allergic). That, along with figuring out how to actually take care of a cat was a lot to take in on one day. Luckily, cats are way easier to manage than dogs, and since she doesn’t live with m,e Esteban got stuck doing most of the work (like using a cotton swab to make her pee, cleaning up poop, and bathing her – although sometimes I help bathe her too).
I still have a list of things to get her though. Here are a few:
1. Scratching Post
2. Cat carrier – with soft sides so she’s more comfy
3. step in litter box (we’re just using a plastic tub right now)
4. More toys!
5. Collar (preferably pink with rhinestones, but Esteban’s not liking the rhinestone idea….lame)
6. Leash – because like any responsible pet owner, I want to be that weird neighbor who takes their cat on walks
As you can see, since she is only 3 to 4 weeks old we had to feed her with a bottle for a few days. It made for very cute pictures! And no new kitten adoption is complete without a Simba(Lion King) pose… she melts my heart!
As I said, I’m a dog person, but this kitten sure is growing on me!!
My posts have been few and far between lately, sorry! I’ve been working 24/7 and just haven’t had the time or desire to make food for the blog or post. I’ve been eating out A LOT! So I thought I’d share some of the foods I’ve been indulging in.
I hit up the Acai Bowl locations around my house quite a lot! My favorite is called Ants on a Log. If you have never had an Acai bowl before you are definitely missing out!
I also tried a plainer bowl with just fruit and honey and granola.
I did make one thing during the past weeks: oatmeal pumpkin pancakes. They were okay, but nothing worth sharing.
I also went to Sizzler and my boyfriend and I shared an ice cream with crushed cookies and chocolate.
Last, but not least, I went to a place called Zero Degrees Italian Ice. I got the passion fruit virgin mojito. It was so good I drank it in a minute! I love the cute jar too!
