there is No Doubt...

There is No Doubt I will be at one of these shows...

7/31/2009 Irvine, CA Verizon Wireless
8/01/2009 Irvine, CA Verizon Wireless

The really exciting thing is I will be living in my new apartment with my new hubs at that time, which literally backs up to this amphitheater, so I will hear both shows, which really makes me smile. 

No Doubt Summer tour 09...holla back girl. 
( for clarification, that is a Gwen Stefani song.. not a do doubt song, but it fit.)

Meet the Bridesmaids; third edition.

It's time for another installment of meet the bridesmaids!

Meet Sarah!

Sarah has been my best friend since Junior year of High School. We met when we were 11, but she says I was "too cool" back then. We were at Hume Lake Summer camp as juniors in high school, sitting on a rock outside of chapel when our "bff status began." We were attached at the hip from that day forward. We literally spent the rest of high school doing everything together. We often spent after school afternoons eating bean dip and laying on the couch ( I know, super active.)with an occasional dive at the community pool.Throughout our friendship, she has taught me to be a better and more fun human being, and I love her for that. The way that she loves and cares for everyone in her life is so incredible. Although we live in different places, attend different colleges, we have remained super close and I feel lucky to call Sarah my friend, and honored to have her as a bridesmaid in my wedding. It is even more fun because we are celebrating engagements together! Sarah will be a June 2010 Bride.. hooray!

I love you Sarah!

i heart camping.

I really do. The dirt, the camp fire, the homemade meals, the laughter, card games, I love it all.

I saw this sleeping bag on a blog today and thought how perfect it would be for camping.

A. It looks super cozy & warm

B. If a bear ever came in my tent it would just think " oh, I thought there were people in here, but's it's just a silly sleeping bear, moving on."

Ohh lala

If you are a bride, and are wanting a short, more vintage style dress, I stumbled upon this site today. It is seriously adorable. 

Wedding Updates

So it is now officially 138 days until the big day, which is so exciting! We have done a lot of planning and work since the last update on the wedding.

Honeymoon: Booked; Costa Rica!!

Dress: Almost done, looking awesome!

Accessories for wedding hair: Arrived Saturday, they are beautiful! Done by the wonderful Chelsea at Oh My Deer.

Engagement Pictures: Taken! Despite the rain and gloom, we found a patch of buttery sunlight on Sunday and took what I think will be some rad photos, courtesy of Gabriel and Carlie over at Gabriel Ryan Photography.

Bridesmaids Gifts: Done and Done, look out ladies, they are beyond fantastic.

Shoes: Betsey Johnson provided some cool kicks for me.

Ceremony Chairs: Done. Pricey, but attendees will have a place of sitting now.

( We did throw around the idea of BYOC; bring your own chair... We still think it would be awesome.)

Centerpieces: Found, unpurchased, but still found.

Ceremony Decor/ Reception Decor: In the works, but the plan has been laid out!

Gym Pass: Slim down for the gown is in full effect people. Kelly Ripa arms are a must.

Whew. I am sure there is more, but that is all I want to blog about now, and I am sure all you want to read.

on my way to Mrs.

Did you love SATC? Do you know what SATC stands for?
If you answered no to either of those, don't bother reading on.

In the epic film, Carrie reads Big a book entitled " Love Letters of Great Men" and I was intrigued. As Fiance knows, I love, love letters. So I really wanted this book.

Well it wasn't real, until now.

Just bought this little beauty for $10 on amazon.


Yes Please.

I don't know where this place is, but it combines three of my favorite menu items.

Ice Cream
