Five Thing Friday

28 Feb

1) Obviously Halls knows what type of week I’ve had.  Thanks Halls for believing in me!

2) Reading notes that no one else was supposed to read has also brightened up my day…

20140228-165109.jpgIn case you can’t tell what it says… “That was exactly what I didn’t want to happen.  They pushed you into me and  the teacher found out 😦 😦 I just wanted to get to know you better.  I think I have a plan…  We pretend brake up but still be together :)!”

Oh young love…

3) Jimmy Fallon has been killin’ it on The Tonight Show.  This song with Jimmy, Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler is all kinds of cute!

4) Tonight we are going see Anchorman with 763 new jokes!  The following clip is not safe for work or your grandmother to listen to! 😉


So I guess it’s just a four thing Friday and I’m okay with that.

Happy Friday!

So this whole blog thing and work thing and wedding planning thing…yeah it’s tricky to keep it all afloat.

So what’s been going on?

A little of this

birthday balloonA lot of wedding dress trying on.  Not posting any photos, however.  Y’all just have to wait!  I will let you know, it does not look like this…


A little too much work for the Matron of Honor and bridesmaids.

We have a wedding DJ!  I’m super excited to have them!  Check out Atlantic Digital Entertainment if you need a DJ.  I’m excited already and haven’t even really decided on anything.  One of the things that sold me was how organized they are.  Seriously.  Love it!

We have also booked our photographer, Ross Costanza.  Again, super excited and can’t wait until it all comes together and we take pictures.

All of the other little things are coming together.  But, man are there a lot of little things!

Seriously, that’d be so much easier…

All the Videos

10 Feb

Since it’s Monday, and since you probably need some distractions from it being Monday….

Relish in some of my favorite recent videos

New Girl.  I mean come on…

Olympic Readiness?

A little Jimmy…

Hopefully this will make your Monday just slightly better.  Oh and the fact that you know that I have this lovely contraption sitting in my living room.

wineYes, that should totally make you feel 100% better about Monday…I know it helped me!

Yuppers, so while the East Coast was getting slammed with snow, I was spending some time on the other coast in Seattle.  Our trip started out with only being a four-day getaway but quickly turned into an entire week thanks to the crazy snow in Virginia Beach.  

We did some pretty fabulous things, I mean besides spending some quality time with the BFF.



We took an awesome Foodie Tour throughout downtown Seattle.  It was so cool!  We went to about seven different places and walked a mile and a half.  So really we didn’t gain any calories, because we burned them all off with the walking.  Right?  Oh and I have to mention our tour guide, Brett, he was pretty spectacular as well.

Places we chowed down:

The Yellow Leaf Cupcake Co. – We ate the pancakes with bacon cupcake and the tomato soup cupcake (not as tomatoey as you would think, like at all)

Serious Pie – We ate the Truffle Pizza and Margherita Pizza. 

Chan – Korean Fusion – We ate braised short rib and a spicy pork slider.  We also had a Ginger Makgeoli, which has ginger rice wine, ginger and lime.  I was not all that impressed with it on the tour, but we went back to Chan (as you can see we hated it)and tried the drink again and loved it. 

La Bunoa Tavola –  All things truffles, seriously.

Il Bistro – Seafood risotto, made with fresh seafood from Pikes Place.  It was pretty legit. 

Pike Brewing – We tried the Kilt Lifter and an IPA.  I do not like IPA’s, but heard from a reliable IPA source that it was good.  They also paired the beers with cheese from the Mt. Townsend Creamery, that were delicious. 

Von’s Gusto Bistro – Salmon Cake.  This was probably my least favorite.  Not because it wasn’t good, but I had just been so wowed by everything else.

Gelatiamo – The raspberry sorbet and chocolate chip gelato.  Both were delicious and tasted even better when mixed together.

The Foodie Tour was a very cool way to tour the city and get to eat great food that we probably wouldn’t have gotten to. I highly recommend it!

If you like big orbs of glass and who doesn’t?  You must check out the Chihuly Garden and Glass.  You have to sign up for a timeframe to get into the museum so don’t expect that just because you got there at a certain time you’ll be getting in.

We also did some exploring of Port Townsend and were told by the lovely lady that, “There is nothing going on today, you came on the wrong day…” Okay then…  

Well we DID find some cool stores to visit aaaaannnd a lighthouse!

It was an awesome trip and I’m kinda glad Virginia Beach got a ton of snow so I could spend some time with my best friend.  I mean I wasn’t mad about it…

Oh and we saw the gum wall.  

It’s gross.
