I made my first ever hybrid project today! Actually my second, but i don't count the first one because they were just cupcake toppers. Those are too easy =) Today i made bottle cap magnets and i think they turned out pretty darn cute:
Oh man. I had read that because the MLB All-Star game was at Angel Stadium this year, there were team painted Mickey's all over the south land. The purpose of them was a contest sorta thing. If you got your picture will all 36 Mickey's then you could win tickets to the game, or something like that. At the last minute, I told my mom that instead of going out to Disneyland today, I wanted to go Mickey hunting. Just for the hell of it. I knew we wouldn't be able to get all of them in one day, so we chose to just find the ones in Anaheim. There were 12 in Anaheim alone, so i knew it was gonna take most of the day. I mapped out our route on the iPad and off we went. We hit up a couple hotels, the garden walk (where we also had lunch), the convention center, the Grove of Anaheim, actual Angel Stadium, Downtown Disney, the civic center and the museum. And it literally did take ALL Day. Here i am with the official All-Star game Mickey at Downtown Disney:
Camping day 4. Camping is very tiring. I officially do not like camping anymore. We woke up and got every packed and hit the road by 10am. By the time we got home and got everything out of the car and got Robert home, i had a massive headache and i was exhausted! So this is what i did the rest of the day:
Camping day 3. We had wanted to go back to the pool again today, but the marine layer just never cleared. It was cold, cloudy and windy all day long. It was my mom's turn to make dinner tonight so we spent a couple hours getting that prepared. We had her yummy spaghetti, garlic bread, an Alfredo penne pasta with broccoli and a anti-pasta salad. It was all pretty dang good. After dinner we just started to get everything cleaned up so that we could head out early the next morning.
Camping day 2. When i woke up this morning, i crawled out of the tent and asked were Chris was. My mom said that he had gone with his brother and my cousins for a walk. 20 min later i hear honking. I turn around to find Chris in a golf cart. He rented a golf cart for us to play with for a couple hours. It was fun being able to zip around the whole camp site and see everything without having to walk, lol. After we took back the golf cart we headed over to do some swimming at the pool. Kathy made her tacos for dinner and we all sat around the campfire just hanging out all night.
Camping Day 1. We got down to Campland at the Bay in San Diego and set up our campsite and tents. We had a look around the whole campsite and I must say, the place was pretty damn cool. Tons of sites, the beach, pools and jacuzzi's, a mini mart, ice cream parlor and a quick service restaurant! This place was barely camping, lol. Which is perfect for me. Our first day, instead of making dinner we went to a Chinese buffet in town. We love us some buffet =):
We are leaving to go camping in the morning so today was all about packing and getting ready to go. Chris's brother Robert is going with us on this trip, so here is a picture of the poor kid totally bored at our house since he had to spend the night here, lol:
A couple days ago my friend Heather from the east coast asked if I could get her the new Toy Story 3 Opening Day pin from Disneyland. So I took a quick run to Downtown Disney to pick it up for her today:
I love taking holiday pictures of my dog. I have mentioned before what a good sport she is about it and today wasn't any different. I picked up some ridiculous 4th of July decorations and snapped away:
Chris dragged me to the $1 store today. I hate that store. There is nothing but crap and I find it to be a total waste of time. Today though, I managed to find come Nestle cookie dough that made chocolate chip cookies with caramel in the middle. For $1!!! I couldn't believe it. The cookies were sooooo good too! Notice I am "were" because we ate everyone of them already, lol. I might have to send him back for more soon =)
A couple weeks ago, a scrap friend asked me if I would take her brother's engagement photos for him (he is from Utah but is working out here for the summer). Of course I said yes, so I picked out a gorgeous beach and spent a couple hours there with him and his fiancee taking photos. They are a totally cute couple and I don't think I did too bad considering this was my first attempt at really shooting people, lol. I am more of a scenery shot type of person =)
My mom does not know how to make anything in small portions. I LOVE her spaghetti. It is probably my favorite thing she makes. When she makes the sauce, she makes A LOT of sauce and then freezes it in smaller containers for future dinners. Tonight she made even more than normal since we are taking some of it with us on our camping trip next weekend. There are about 7 containers in our kitchen fridge and 2 giant containers in the garage fridge. Here is the kitchen fridge:
Today at work, before we opened, I heard Lily call my name from the bathroom. I walked into the bathroom only to find out that she liked the lighting and wanted to take a picture of us! haha, she is so funny. So here is the picture from Lily's iPhone:
Today I came home from work to find that ALL the dogs toys have been taken out of the container that we keep them in and thrown across the entire living room. Roxy had no problem admitting that she was the one that did it, especially since I found her laying in the middle of the mess! Silly girl:
World of Color officially opened at California Adventure this past Friday! I know myself, therefore I knew that there was no way I would be able to get there at park opening to get showpasses. Instead I went ahead and made Ariel's Grotto dining package reservations for my mom, Chris and I. This was perfect for us! We got to the park around 3pm, got on a couple rides, at dinner (which was very yummy) at 5pm, finished dinner, went to the lockers to get our jackets and then headed back to the show area to get in line for our seats. We were the first ones let into the area and we managed to claim an area on the stairs which will be perfect because no one will be blocking our view. This is waited for 2 hours until the show started. We made friends with the people sitting around us and i got myself and my camera waterproofed and ready for the show =)
The show was really good! I thoroughly enjoyed it and was very happy that we did the dining package. Here is a picture of Mickey's Fun Wheel all lit up with color before the show:
I usually do not go to bed till about 4am Mon-Thur. The weekends i usually go to bed earlier, but i do most of my work during the week and it always keeps me up really late. Roxy does the same thing every night as well. She sleeps in her bed on the couch next to me till i am ready to head up to bed. Then i wake her up and tell her it is time to go potty. She goes outside to go to the bathroom and when she comes back in and stands on the stairs looking at me with her sleepy, can we please go to bed now eyes. She waits there until i turn off all the lights and then she heads the rest of the way up the stairs. She is a silly little thing =)
Chris has really been wanting to see the movie "Get Him To The Greek" so we went to see it today. I LOVE Russell Brand, but this movie was not very good. It has a couple funny parts, but over-all, not very good.
I cannot even begin to describe how obsessed Roxy is with coffee. I know it is bad for her, but this dog seriously has an iron stomach. Nothing bothers her. Whenever we go to Starbucks, which is a lot, she goes spastic trying to get to our drinks. Iced Vanilla Lattes are Roxy's heroine. There is really no other way to put it. Even when you give her some, she relaxes for about 2 min and then she is back in your face trying to get another drink. The only way to get her to stop is to actually finish the drink in front of her. She has to physically see you finish it. Then she will go lay down. My dog is insane. For coffee. =)
Poor Chloe had to go to the vet this morning to have her teeth cleaned. She has the worst teeth. No matter how many times they clean her teeth, every time she goes in she has to have teeth pulled. The poor dog doesn't have any teeth in the front of her mouth. I am pretty sure she has a couple random teeth and that is about it, lol. The dogs are so funny when they get home from having their teeth cleaned because they are just so out of it, their tongues stick out of their mouths and all they want is to be held. Chloe here is a perfect example of that:
My mom and aunt called me on their was home from work today and asked if i wanted to go see Sex and the City 2 when they got home. I liked it! It's silly and fun and everything i expected it would be =) When we were leaving the movie theater i saw this super cute poster for the new Toy Story 3 movie! i couldn't help myself, i just had to take a picture of it! =)
Well well well, look what arrived today!! We finally got our new couches!! No more air mattress, no more pillow on the ground and no more ugly loaner couch! The new couches were in the house all of 30 min and my aunt had already whipped together some cushion covers for them so they don't get full of dog hair, lol.
Chris was working on one of the cars again today, so i sat outside and watched him for a while. I brought out Roxy and the camera, but when i went to take pictures of her, all she wanted to do was sit on my lap. So i had to take this picture holding the camera out to my side while she was sitting on my lap, lol. I think it turned out pretty good! =)
A couple days ago my cousin Veronika called and asked if we wanted to come watch her Jiu-Jitsu tournament. She has been taking a Jiu-Jitsu class at college and her "final" for the class was a tournament. She did really well! She came in first in her weight-class for females. It was a good time and i think she was really happy that we came to watch her!
When Sid got to the house tonight he got to see what the family picked up for him when they were in Vegas, a super cool Elvis Presley poker chip! I am sure i have said it before but Sid is OBSESSED with Elvis. So needless to say, he was thrilled!
I brought my camera to work today! I am not gonna lie, my co-workers totally made fun of me for lugging my giant camera in my purse, but they were all for posing for a picture with me =) So here is Lily, Dustin and I at work =)
I got up today and called Chris. I found out that he got to his appointment in Downtown super early and had time for lunch! So i hopped into the car and met him for lunch at our favorite Chinese restaurant, Chinese Friends! It is in Chinatown, which i love. Good food and good shopping! =)
Whoo!! We have hit the 6month mark! This is so exciting.
I love Hello Kitty. Yes, sometimes I am a 5 year old child. My mom brought me home this super cute box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts with Hello Kitty on the box! I guess she found a ABC Store in Vegas and went crazy, lol. I ate the candy, but had the hardest time throwing out this super cute box!
With the start of a new month comes a new date element!! This month we have "Simply Dated" by WM [squared] Designs.
