new loves… February 16, 2009
So in honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d mention a few things I’ve discovered that I like this weekend 🙂
1. Idyllwild in winter – I’ve been there before in the spring but we went there this weekend and it was awesome! (more to come on this topic – above picture is from there)
2. Knee deep snow – very very fun to play in as long as a hot shower is near
3. The new Fray CD – The gentleman bought it for me for Valentine’s Day, it’s pretty freaking awesome!
4. Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos – I think I might even like these better than flamin’ hot cheetos
5. Seeing movie stars in public – Kind of makes me feel excited but then feel dumb for feeling excited but then excited that I snuck a picture. (See this coming photo Friday for details)
Happy Valentine’s weekend – hope it was happy!

Here’s this year’s!
Happy Anniversary to us!!! November 10, 2008
Well, it’s been a year of fun and excitement. Partly it feels like we’ve been married forever, not in a bad way of course, but because we know each other so well and are so comfortable together. The other part of me feels like it’s gone by so fast and there are still days where I suddenly remember I’m married and it’s a little shocking. I guess 1 year of being married doesn’t undo a mindset of 25 years of not being married (does that makes sense?). But seriously, we’ve had so much fun together and I really appreciate the family and friends who have supported us and love us and pray for us.
So, yay us! 1 year and still going! I guess it’s not that much of an accomplishment compared to 50 years but still, it’s exciting to us!
Soon I’ll post pics from our anniversary weekend, wahoo!

The Queen Mary March 18, 2008
So this past weekend, I took the gentleman to stay on the Queen Mary for a late bday present since we’ve been so busy. I had visited it (along with the Spruce Goose) when I was a kid but never knew that they turned it into a hotel! Apparently it’s haunted, so then we HAD to go there! And of course all we did all evening was run around taking pictures 🙂
We were bad…there weren’t a lot of people out at night and we found a few open gates that I assume were meant to be closed since all the rest were and we climbed some stairs I assume weren’t meant to be climbed 🙂 We looked inside those big smoke stacks. There was nothing in them but junk, it was boring, but dark so it freaked me out a little…haha.
And the gentleman has been growing out his beard…isn’t it amazing?? He’s been called: “Chuck Norris”, “A Terrorist”, and “Distinguished”… Maybe he’s a distinguished
terrorist, did anyone think of that!!
All in all, it was a good little getaway. Everyone needs to get away even for just a day and a night. Anyway, we recommend staying at the Queen Mary. You might not get a good night’s sleep though, the walls are thin and their generators run all night. But we didn’t see any ghosts, haha. Someone’s alarm clock went off at 5am but there wasn’t anyone staying in that room so we called to have them get someone to turn it off. Of course things like that don’t get fixed easily. The guys were on their walkie talkies trying to open the room. Someone’s keys didn’t work, they couldn’t find the other guy. I swear, how does anything ever get done!! So around 5:45 we were finally able to go back to sleep. Oh well. If things like that didn’t happen, how would we ever appreciate efficient and competent people? Plus, it’s just fun to laugh at later…
and finally….We’re changing our business name. It’s now and always going to be SidebySide Video. We had too many problems with the other name and website so we’re going with this. The site is easier now. www.sidebysidevideo.com (we’re updating it so look back soon to see the new site with videos!) and the new blog is: blog.sidebysidevideo.com
love is a many splendid thing February 17, 2008
