Plus a little extra…

Just another weblog

Where have we been? March 12, 2010

Well, I planned on switching our blog over to wordpress a while ago and once I got started on it (and never finished it) I felt it pointless to keep writing blogs on the old blog so for all 3 of you who read this, sorry for keeping you in the dark for so long!

Welcome to the new and improved blog! We use wordpress for our business blogs so we figured we’d move our personal one that direction too.

I have TONS of blogs to catch up on, so you’ll be seeing much more of us from now on!

P.S. If you want to continue following us, please switch your RSS feed to this URL so that you’ll get the updates…thanks!!

So I’ve been totally behind on my photo a week promise but with good reason…which I will update about soooooon….

So here are my photos…

#1:Banana Toast

banana toast was one of those things that my mom “invented” (at least that’s what I remember) and it’s one of those things that every once in a while, I have an incredible craving for. It’s pretty simple, toast, butter, banana slices and cinnamon/sugar on top, but there is a very specific taste when all those things are combined that is just wonderful.

#2:Hornsby’s Ciders

mmmmm. That’s it, just yummy. I like it better than beer.

So because the clip in the video is quick, I’ve had some people say that it wasn’t Jack Nicholson that we saw. So I’ve cropped the picture so you can take a closer look and see for yourself…

So, what’s the vote? Is it him or isn’t it?


New blog favs. February 3, 2009

So recently (right around the time I came across the videos a couple posts ago) I also came across 2 blogs that I can’t get enough of! Please explore a few pages of these blogs…there is some good stuff in there and will definitely brighten your day 🙂

#1 – Fail Blog
Here is an example of what you would find on the site. I like it because of how simple it is. FAIL, that’s awesome! Plus, many of the pictures remind me of signs I saw in Asia, misspelled or not making sense.

#2 – Cake Wrecks
This blog is all about cakes that have gone wrong…but not just any cakes, professional ones! There are so many I could post about, but since I’m in the wedding business, I’ll have to post a picture of THE BEST WEDDING CAKE EVER! Here you go, and you’re welcome.

So as I was going through a small box of memories I have on a book shelf, I came across this awesome memior. In this particular box, I have old ticket stubs, old work name tags and then this random photo. By looking closely I saw that the certificate is for Student of the Month. I’m guessing it was for the month of November based on the turkey die cut.

I’ll say, it’s a good thing I had good grades and the teachers liked me because I obviously didn’t know how to keep my eyes open for a picture!

Finding this forgotten picture this morning totally made my day!

So the only down side to absentee voting is that you don’t get the coveted “I voted” sticker. I always feel a little left out when everyone else has a sticker and I don’t because I voted a week ago! So this year I made a little badge for myself and wore it proudly at work all day.

Now, because of the unsubtleness (yes not a real word but whatev.) of my badge I had a bunch of kids asking me who I voted for today. I obviously can’t discuss things like that with the kids so instead I asked them who they would have voted for if they were 18 (I love the double standard hee hee). Of course all this really did was show me who their parents voted for…

I had two highlight answers to share from today:

#1 from a 5th grade girl
I would vote for Obama
me: Why is that?
girl: because he’s totally cool and awesome.
me: Oh, is that all you need to become president?
girl: Well, I’m not sure, but the president has to be totally awesome.

#2 from a 2nd grade boy
boy: McCain totally, we HAVE to vote for McCain!
me: Why is that?
boy: Well, you can’t vote for Obama because then he will have prop. 8 and then we have to marry other boys!! [the rest of the boys were then uneasy in their seats and agreed they would vote for McCain too]
me: Well, that’s not entirely true…
boy: Ok everyone, so tell your parents that and vote McCain

I absolutely love hearing how kids completely misunderstand their parents’ opinions and politics in general. It gave me a good laugh though 🙂

Do you really get a free Tootsie Roll POP when you get the Indian shooting the star?

I’ve always wondered that.

Fall is my favorite time of year.

It is also the time of year, however, when California weather is most confusing. It’s wonderfully brisk in the morning and evening, scarf and sweater weather! But, pretty warm-hot in the afternoon. Such a predicament when choosing clothing for the day. So, the solution? Jeans, flip flops, tank top, sweater and scarf. I’m sure I look ridiculous but I don’t want to bring a change of clothing to work with me everyday.

Any thoughts?
