it’s been awhile

well, now that the wedding is all over, I thought my schedule would slow down, well- not so far. I am going to give it my best shot though. I will share everything about the wedding… but I’m currently still in the process of editing all the pictures, so I will have to post things over time.

My days and nights have been extremely packed- and when I do get a little free time, I do things like read a whole book in a day (water for elephants) or watch a few episodes of sex in the city (season 1- I decided that I will watch EVERY episode). I’ve been trying to catch up on laundry, and was pretty successful for… one day, I got most of it done, but now I’m behind again. We are still trying to get everything organized from the wedding (gifts) but have realized that our cozy duplex is now just an over crowded duplex. It will probably be awhile before we actually move, so we had plans to hit the deep cleaning hard… well, we had plans at least.

We were hoping to get some of that done last weekend but didn’t fit it in. We started off friday doing our normal celebratory drinks (yay for friday!) then everyone came back over, and we ended up staying up late (this happens every friday).  Sat I spent my day doing thank you cards and announcements, and around 6 we took our wedding formal pictures at a park. later that night we had to head downtown for a friend’s birthday party. We ended up staying until closing, and cabbing it back home, where some friends came over to watch the ufc fights… I think we went to bed around 4am. Sunday I had to get my car while brian ran an errand for a friend. As soon as we got back we had to head out to meridian to go bowling (I watched- I’m not coordinated enough to bowl). We came home, rested for a half hour, and then joined our friends Brandee and Nick for dinner at their house. Sunday night I enjoyed some Sex in the City (like I said, season 1) before heading off to bed. Monday night we had to go do some major grocery shopping.. (I’m trying to eat healthier- cost us 200 instead of the normal 100, why is the healthier food so much more expensive?!?!) We got home around 8:30, and I got to work preparing food for tonight- we are having some of our closest friends over to celebrate Miss Ainsley’s birthday. I got some jello shots done (yum!) and started making chilli… well, while cutting a jalapeno, I at one point rubbed my hand on my face… and guess what? It burned horribly forever… I didn’t fall asleep until 1:30 am… I just simply didn’t know. at all. I’m not a spicy person- I actually think pepper is spicy- but have had this chili before, and if you cut the jalapenos up so small you don’t even know they’re there… but I had no clue that it would burn my face off! Now, I will admit that I can be a bit of a baby.. but seriously, it was hours of pain. The only thing that made it feel remotely better was holding a bag of ice on the spot, but looking back I really think that maybe the ice made it drag out a lot longer. At one point I even tried putting my face in a bowl of milk (my face didn’t fit right) so I took a dish rag, soaked it in milk and rubbed it all over my face. Brian said it was supposed to “neutralize.” He also told me to snort the milk… I had to clarify that I didn’t “pick” my nose while the toxic jalapeno juices, I merely spread them across half of my face. So I didn’t get any picking up done… and I’m extremely exhausted. Everyone will be coming over around 6… I’ll hopefully have enough time to pick up a little, and make these cute little mini pies- Ainsley isn’t a big fan of cake, so I thought I could stick candles in them, kind of like cupcakes.

So anyways… tonight is the birthday dinner, tomorrow night I have a work meeting, Thursday I have plans with an old friend… Saturday I have to go to a wedding, and Sunday is a friend’s pampered chef party. whew!

And on top of everything, I’ve been really trying to get into the whole photography thing… I’m currently trying to learn photoshop. I have plans to work with an old high school acquaintance who runs her own photography business, but at the moment she’s busy with school… but hopefully soon. Until then I’m trying to work on what I can. Be sure to check out thelovelypictures in the next couple of months to see all the exciting projects I’ve been working on.

and now, a few fun things…

a collection of jello shot recipes, a wonderful & easy crock pot dinner, and a horrible but funny recording of a girl who thought she was going to get proposed to on the radio, but got dumped instead.

Also-
have you seen this movie trailer yet?

Brandee & I decided we had to get all the girls together to go see it…

I’m also really excited to see this- because I read the book in one day (it was amazing btw)…

The hubs said he would take me to go see it for a date night… even though it has Robert Pattinson. What a sweet boy!

Also, you can be sure to bet that Brandee & I will be going to see this movie (after I read the book of course, because that’s my thing and Emily Giffin is on of my favs!)

and just one more…

I’m practically obsessed with movies I think. (and books.) Is there anything you’re dying to see?

Well, that’s all for now.
Have a lovely tuesday afternoon.

https://i2.wp.com/lh6.ggpht.com/_GWQucmdYVX8/SXSGxt7DB_I/AAAAAAAABIo/UNeQ09FF0Yg/Joshua%20Jackson.jpg

JOSHUA JACKSON…

love this guy! he’s my favorite part about fringe.  he’s a hottie for sure!

09 – The contents of your fridge; MTV Cribs style.

um, I’m working on this one….

10 – Your dream wedding.

https://i0.wp.com/www.intimateweddings.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/altar-2.jpg

Brian and I were talking about this last night… we say, “If I were to do it all over again…” although it’s really silly actually, because we say “again” like it’s already happened, but it hasn’t… but we both agree, that we would have liked to get married in a super private ceremony… like at the beach, and then having a reception later.

11 – A photo of the item you last purchased.

https://i2.wp.com/www.a2restaurants.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/coffee.jpg

okay, so that’s not my hand… or my coffee. but it’s the last thing that I bought… which was this morning! and it was just gas station coffee.. the extra caffeinated kind in case you’re wondering.

12 – Your favorite movie.

I have LOTSSS of favorites… but I must say that I’ve watched this movie a million times. or pretty close to…

https://i1.wp.com/steamykitchen.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/julie-julia-movie.jpg

13 – What you want more than anything right now.

https://i0.wp.com/www.themarinerscottage.com/cottage_front_08.jpg

a house… I don’t even need to own it… just something bigger (but not too big) and hopefully with a garage, because I know that would make brian super duper happy. I just want to be out of our little duplex! however, we will probably be there for awhile….

14 – Your current wish list.

1. see above

2. a trip to IRELAND.

3. to go to art school

15 – Something you regret.

well… to be honest, I regret getting my dress altered for my friend’s wedding last year. The top area was way to big… so I got it altered, and then it was way too small! it was like, wham bam boobs in your face! I still have nightmares about it.

I mean, there are other things I regret, but I don’t feel like talking about anything too serious today…

 

16 – The most beautiful picture of your best friend.

photo

I have girl best friends, but this man right here, is the closest to my heart.

He is truly someone I can tell anything to.

17 – A TV show you’re currently addicted to.

well, there’s more than one…

So I’m one day late on this one… but I’m already working on today’s challenge, so that evens it out I think 🙂

march challenge day 03- a photo of your cell phone.

Sooooo I told myself last night that I would take a picture of my phone, then upload it and post it on wordpress. Well, as you can see, that didn’t happen. And how silly I was, for trying to create extra work for myself! I got the brilliant idea to look up the picture of my phone on google! so here it is, my phone:

It’s the mytouch slide, which is the phone that everyone has- or at least it seems like it. And yes, I did get the red color. This one looks a bit nicer than mine does, because I have the horrible habit of dropping my phone, and it normally happens when I’m getting out of the car and it smashes into the cement. One day, I got out of brian’s truck, accidentally dropped it, then accidentally stepped on it. oooopsies. So I have a body glove for it, but my other body glove cover died, and we had to wait for them to send a complimentary replacement, and it got a little beat up while we were waiting.

up next for today: a day in the life. and yes, a day in the life of ME. (you KNOW you’re excited.)

Here’s my picture for the march challenge I’m doing… day 1- A picture of me & my outfit.

image

image

This is what I saw when I started my car this morning…pretty huh? although they say when it’s all colorful in the morning, that it means a storms coming.

image

Here’s a little sneak preview of the centerpieces for the wedding… we put some of our engagement pictures in the mason jars, and in the mason jars are hand made flower decorations. I’ll make sure to show you a picture of when they are all done. 🙂

image

image

the two pictures above, I found on my phone… When we stay out in kuna every once in awhile some of us will go to ben wok for breakfast… which, I must say, has the most horrible breakfast. We voted last time (in the picture above) that we will never go there again.

image

A little snap shot of brandee’s birthday… a month ago today! I made her a strawberry flavored cake, with chocolate frosting ❤

image

Brian’s completely in love with our new waffle iron. EVERY weekend he always asks me, “how about some waffles?” sureeeeee. I did find a recipe for cheese and ham waffles, I MUST try them!

image

This is Ashleigh right before she had her baby… the day before actually. I snapped a picture of her and told her I would show it to her after she forgot about it. I said to her, “last day of being pregnant! you have to remember this moment forever!” And sadly, the photoshop program on my phone doesn’t fix red eyes 😦 still a cute picture anyways.

love,

t.
