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!
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!
A few years ago I begged for a waffle iron. I was going to make waffles everyday. I had good intentions, but barely ever used the thing. I finally dusted it off this last weekend and decided to make apple waffles. I am a huge fan of apples in desserts and breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc.). These waffles were ridiculously delicious! I feel like I’ve been missing out my entire life!!
