3 Months.

3 months people, 3 little months. 92 days!

3 months until I'll be rocking a white (well technically ivory) dress down an aisle on top of a museum with Matt and the end waiting for me.

I mean really people how nuts is that?

I know you might get sick of all these countdowns but I know that the next 92 days are going to fly by and I might have some mini freak outs (let's hope not) and things will get checked off lists and calls will be made and emails sent and yes just awesome and crazy and ah all around.

And what better wait to commemorate 3 month til the big day than with my bachelorette party this weekend?!?

Yes last weekend was Vegas and this weekend so many of my closest friends are coming together for my bachelorette party/weekend and I don't even know the plan (I like surprises so I stayed in the dark about it all) but I cannot wait, I can only imagine that it will be epic and wonderous and fabulous and just win all around.

And totally unrelated but completely necessary it this picture of an attempt at a two person airplane brought to you by me and Nicole, courtesy of Doni's camera:

we were trying to recreate last year's pic she took with
although I realized that Matt didn't lift his leg.
so I think we win for trying.
also, ridiculous.

Anyhoozits I hope you all have a fabulous long weekend and expect ridiculous stories and pictures and all sorts of happy to just seep from this blog when I return next week, woo!

happy weekend!

Swoonyface Hollywood.

I think this might be the least amount of posting I've ever done and man does it feel weird. But really after posting the Vegas recap I just couldn't muster up the energy to go through Hollywood. But alas I am recovered and bringing you your weekly dose of Hollywood happenings, so here we go:
  • Starting off this week's cuteness we have my favorite little lady of Hollywood, Violet Affleck, getting carried from a scruffy looking daddy Ben, precious.


  • Also bringing in some major cuteness is Liev Schriber hoisting up both of his adorable tow headed boys, I mean really, adorable.

    aw how adorable!!

  • Also in bebe news, John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston announced that they are expecting a baby soon which is pretty exciting and crazy and wow and congrats to the happy fam.

  • In other news...Charlie Sheen is the highest paid TV actor, how or why? I do not know...Jesse James is talking to the media and still gets no sympathy from me...Brittany Murphy's creepy husband was found dead over the weekend, both weird and sad...Reba did a cover of Beyonce's "If I Were a Boy" and it's pretty good...Jake Gyllenhaal looks so suave on the Late Show...My girl Sandy will be honored as the first female to win the MTV Generation Award at the MTV movie awards, woo woo Sandy!...and looking fierce and chic we have one of my faves Thandie Newton at some LV event:

    love it.

  • In favoriteness...
    Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams were quite the pair at Cannes. The co-stars just look so cute together and there are rumors they might be together in real life? I would not object. But really, Ryan, yum.


    Also in favorite, Josh Jackson was at the Fox up front event and ah, swoonface, heartface, loveface, the end.

    major swooooon.

  • In Twilight news...
    The battle over paychecks has officially been settled and Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz will definitely be in Breaking Dawn. Thank goodness because really, it would not be the same without them.

    Also in Rob news, he began filming Water for Elephants (which I cannot wait for) and seriously how adorable is he???

    check out that smile, aaaaaaswoony.

  • In TV news...
    Want to know what shows made the cut for next year and which ones didn't? Check out the full Fall lineup here.

    Medium. Has been renewed! That's really all I care about.

    Desperate Housewives. A few changes will be coming to Wisteria Lane next year. Kyle Maclaclan (Orson Hodge) will be leaving. Looks like Dana Delany (Catherine) won't be coming back from Paris any time soon because she's on a new show already. However, joining the ladies will be Vanessa Williams as a new regular. Um awesome addition, love her. Can't wait to see what drama she brings to the show.

    Grey's Anatomy. Holy hell I think my heart may still be skipping beats from watching this finale. Luckily I read a spoiler break down beforehand because I don't think I could have handled it. I mean there were steady tears flowing when Derek got shot (which I knew would happen and I have a feeling he'll be dechiefed and the hold chief will be back) and Meredith watched and then more tears when Percy died and then Karev calling out to Izzie. I mean really Shonda, way to write a finale. Oh and her interview with EW answers some questions too and just wow.

    Glee. Idina is my hero. Love the Gaganess. Love Kurt's dad to the nth degree. Love Puck's rendition of "Beth" (at least I'm assuming that's the name of the song since I'd never heard it). Love Brittany and her ditzy ways. Love this show.

    The Mentalist. Ah! Red John! I'm pretty sure it's the CSI guy because the voices were so similar and ah! Also, Simon Baker? Still suave.

    Big Bang Theory. A girl for Sheldon!?!? Looooved it. Seriously can this show come back already? Well we do have seasons 1 and 2 right now so that should keep us occupied.

  • Lastly in today's WTF news we have the ten worst smuggling attempts thanks to Nicole. I mean really, 75 snakes IN YOUR BRA?! What the eff? No thank you, ew.

Anything I missed? Let me know, I probably missed a lot this week since I've been in a Vegas coma, haha.

happy thursday!

69 Bloggers + Vegas = Ridiculous Awesomeness times a million.

And I'm back. I mean my eyes might still be dry, my liver might hate me, my voice might be scratchy, my body might be quite sore and I could probably sleep for the rest of the week but I'm pretty much back from a weekend in Vegas. And I mean, what a weekend. Bloggers in Sin City 2.0 was more ridiculous and more amazing than I could have even imagined. And yeah I don't know how much if it I can really recap so basically we're going to go with random points and pictures because that always works right?

Pretty much it's impossible to fully capture how amazing and wonderful this past weekend was and how many great people I met and the memories we made and the ridiculousness that ensued and yeah, fill me in if I forgot something major because there's a good chance I did since I lost my brain last week. So thank you again and again Nicole for organizing such a wonderful event and yeah rainbow heartface miss you all already.

So let's do it again soon okay guys? Superb. Lovely. Win!

happy tuesday!

Bloggers in Sin City 2.0

So remember last year I went to Vegas with Matt and twenty other bloggers? Well of course you do, because it was awesome.

And this year I'm going again. Sans Matt and with sixty eight other bloggers, SIXTY EIGHT! Holy crap how did that happen?

I know you're probably getting sick of hearing about especially if you aren't coming, but I can't help it I'm just so excited!

Pretty much there will be bloggers there I've been reading for years and never met, bloggers I've never heard of, bloggers I've taken ridiculous pictures with and bloggers I just can't wait to hang out with. It will be fantabulous.

So today I'm heading to Sin City for one ridiculous, bloggerific and surely memorable adventure.

I so want one of those headpieces.

Feel free to follow my tweets over the weekend because they're bound to be ridiculous and make no sense (and ohmygodIcanactuallytweetthisyearsinceIhaveanIphonetechnologyWIN!) and ah!

hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Blahs and Squees.

Yesterday I couldn't really think of what to write about because life is just too busy and crazy and exciting and I know I said I just wouldn't blog if I didn't have to but I wanted to and ah, I'm rambling, so here we go.

Things that are blah:
  • Tonight will be the last night I'm at Matt's mom's house since she's moving this weekend. It's just so sad to say goodbye to the house that's had so many good memories.

  • I hate packing. It sort of stresses me out because I can never figure out if I've brought enough stuff or too much and ah!

  • Some of my faves won't be coming to Vegas and that makes me sad.
Things that are squeeee worthy:
  • I'm heading to Vegas TOMORROW! Holy crap it's tomorrow. And I finally get to meet some bloggers I've been reading forever and meet new ones and ah! Excited!

  • And next Friday four of my friends from college are flying to LA and it begins my Bachelorette/Bridal shower weekend that I know nothing about and it's all a surprise and all sorts of friends are coming and ohmygoodness I cannot wait.

  • Mustache toppers. Seriously they make me laugh and my new Facebook profile pic cracks me up.

  • 101 days until Matt and I get married!!

Basically life is all sorts of crazy and how is today only Wednesday?

What's blah or squee in your life today??

happy wednesday!

A hankering for Hollywood.

Helloooo Hollywood! And welcome to Tuesday. Here we go!
  • Starting off this week's uber cuteness we have little Levi and Mama Camila on a bike ride. Seriously he is such a cutie, but where was shirtless daddy this time?

    he looks so nervous, but it's so cute!

  • Also bringing some uber cuteness is soon-to-be big sister Olive Cohen with mama Isla Fisher. Seriously that girl is always grinning and I love that Isla checked out "I'm a Big Sister" for her, precious!

    smiley preciousness, lurve it.
  • Also in bebe news, some congrats are also in order to new mom Amy Adams and third time mom Claudia Schiffer, who both welcomed little girls over the weekend!

  • In some non-bebe news...Jessica Biel is Broadway bound! Girl's come a long way from 7th Heaven alright, wow....Remember Chris Klein? Apparently he auditioned for Mama Mia! and I honestly don't know why he didn't get the part *lots of sarcasm*...Betty White and Tracy Morgan did a photo shoot together and the behind the scenes video is exactly the ridiculousness you would expect...Salma Hayek is changing her name because her daughter asked her too, cute?...And talk about aging gracefully, Diane Lane looked amazing at Cannes over the weekend and I would totally rock that elegant blue dress, seriously she is awesome:

    oh la la.

  • In some favorites news..
    Hollywood hottie Ryan Gosling graced LAX Sunday and I never knew a cardigan could look so good on a man, I mean really, swoonface.

    hawtness to the nth degree, haha.

  • In Twilight news...
    The Eclipse soundtrack listing has officially been released and yep, looks about as emo and dark and broody as the other two and I'll definitely be owning it.

    Also, Rob got a hair cut! Ahhhhh. Well not really ahhh but still, big news people, big news, haha. I kid, I could care less but I love how everyone went nuts. And as much as I love Twilight I can't wait for Water for Elephants to start filming and come to theaters, I hope they do it justice.

    Also in Twilight news, a big congrats goes out to the ladies at Letters to Twilight who will be dining with Stephenie Meyer at a super secret, super elite, special luncheon to talk all things Twilight. Um awesome right? And just think, I gave one of the co-founders my copy of Twilight to read and the rest is history, congrats girls!

  • And in movie news...
    Two Marilyn Monroe biopics are in the works and Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams will both be playing her. I wonder who will do it best? And seriously how does this always happen? I mean Capote and Infamous? Volcano and Dante's Peak? Weird.

  • And in TV news...
    Law and Order. The original has officially be axed after twenty seasons on the air. It was the original L&O that got me into SVU and made me such a fan so it's sort of sad to see it go even if the whole cast is completely different, haha.

    Heroes. Another one of my old favorites has been canceled after only four seasons. It had a good run though and brought us some new stars and sayings "Save the cheerleader, save the world", whatever that means, haha.

    The Mentalist. Looks like Jane has a lady love? Interesting. Also, is it me or is the man getting more suave as the season goes on? Swoooon.

    Top Model. Well another season over and I actually didn't care that much. I feel like some of the best girls went home too soon and I did not like any of the top four all that much. And could they have made it any more obvious who was going to win it? I mean really. Anyhoozits, check out Four Four for spoilers and a giftastic post.

    Desperate Housewives. Oh what a finale! Check out my recap over here.

  • Lastly in today's WTFness we have Tila Tequilla. I mean really. Ew. I'd be okay if she hopped on that plane to nowhere with the fellow banned peoples.

So anything I missed? Let me know!

happy tuesday!

Busyish Relaxingish Awesomeness.

Oh what a wonderful weekend indeed, seriously it was a good combination of busy and lazy and I just loved it. So shall we break it down? Here we go!

Friday: After work my sister and Matt came and picked me up and we were on our way to see my favorite band, O.A.R. in concert!!! Seriously I love them and their music and just ah all around. Pretty much we got great spots at the Wiltern and just hung out and watched the great openener, A.L.O. (yes it was the night of acronym bands). The only major downer was at the very end of the opening act Matt got hit in the head with a camera. Yes, like an actual video camera filming the show on a big beam and everything came down and hit Matt directly on the head. I freaked out and went and got people to come look at his head and Matt tried to be all manly and say it didn't hurt, but it did. Luckily the rest of the show went on without any additional injury although Matt's head did hurt a bit.

love them.

way to smile through the pain Matt.

heyyyyy girrrrrl.

All in all it was a great show and I'm so glad O.A.R. came to LA and they are welcome back any time!

Saturday: Slept in a bit before going with my mom and my friend Katrina to try on my wedding dress!!! It wasn't actually a fitting since they suggest I don't do that until July but I really wanted to just see the dress and try it on and ohmygod you guys I'm still in love. My dress is so classy and elegant and ah! Love it. And the most amazing thing was that it was actually big (especially in the bust! so unheard of for me, haha). Pretty much the dress is great and my shoes look good with it and I cannot wait to put it on again and again!

After hanging out a bit with my mom and Katrina I came home and relaxed for a couple hours and caught up on the DVR before heading out with Matt to my aunt and uncle's house for a nice night together. My aunt and uncle treated Matt and I to dinner and a movie as a belated birthday gift and it was so fun! We had a pretty laid back dinner before heading to Gold Class to see Iron Man 2. The movie was pretty good, the atmosphere was awesome and it was just a good night all around. After the movie we hung for a bit, watched some Big Bang Theory and just had a good time. Pretty much a wonderful night.

Sunday: Slept in again (oh how I love sleep) and woke up realizing I had nothing to do. So with that I decided to watch some TV and then reinstall the Sims on my computer. Pretty much I knew it was a bad idea but I couldn't help it. I love the Sims. Whenever I start playing I play for hours, days at a time and ah, I get addicted (like that's a surprise...) So yeah I did that for a couple hours before I went walking with my mom at the Rose Bowl. After walking Matt and I headed over to my parent's house for dinner which was fun and then ultimately ended the night at home playing the Sims and watching TV and drinking wine, aka a win, haha.

So yes, it was a loverly busyish/relaxingish weekend and I lurved it.

And how was your weekend?

happy monday!

Friday, May 14, 2010

Four years in USville.

Just think...

Ten years ago we met in Gianni's backyard.

Nine years ago went to prom together.

Eight years ago went to prom together again.

Seven years ago we finished our first year of college in different states.

Six years ago I visited you in Arizona and we pretended to date so some girls would leave you alone.

Five years ago we swapped hook up stories and talked about how great college was.

Four years ago we started dating and everyone else said "it's about time."

Four years ago we said "I love you."

Four years ago I knew I would one day marry my best friend.

And in 106 days I will.

I'd say time has been good to us.

happy (last anniversary before we have a real, court approved married anniversary, haha) anniversary!

I luuuuurve you.

happy weekend all!

Transracial what?

*I've been sitting on this topic a while and it's taken me some time to get it all out. I know it's one of those rare serious moments on the blog, but it's important to me and it needed to be said*

As you all know, one of my Hollywood favorites, Sandra Bullock, recently adopted a New Orleans born son and became a single mother. And if you didn't know that, what rock have you been living under?

Anyways, when the story broke the biggest headline was not at Sandra was a newly single mother, it was that she adopted a black child. There were discussions going back and forth and posts like this on CNN and other media outlets discussing the issues (good and bad) with transracial adoptions like hers and other celebrities and every day couples and what that comes across as in society. And all I could help thinking while reading all of this was: Does it really matter?

I mean really people. I read some blog posts (that I will not link to) that made me so angry because they blasted people like Sandra for playing the "savior to lost black babies" and saying "black babies should be raised by black families." I also read posts saying that Sandra did the whole thing for publicity and how dare she since her husband (soon to be ex) took pictures with nazi paraphernalia and is clearly racist. Um. What?

Now I don't know Sandra or anything (but I want to, hi Sandy!) but I would say it's safe to assume that her child isn't some stunt to regain popularity. I would also say that since they filed four years ago asking for ANY child that they were happy to receive little Louis when they did.

Nonetheless, I'm glad this issue was brought up. I'm glad for two reasons. One. I'm biracial. I don't fall under the black category and I don't fall under the white one either. I love both halves of me and I embrace them both as much as I can. Two. My fiance is adopted and one day we might want to adopt as well. So would it be socially unacceptable if we adopted a black child? Or a white child? Because we're not a "black family" or a "white family"?

These sorts of things were never addressed in any argument or discussion I read. Biracial is never addressed, we sort of fly under the radar. And to that I say (excuse my language): What the fuck? (actually I say that's a whole other subject for a whole other post, but still)

I just wish people would stop lumping everyone and every race together and making these ludicrous statements of "black families this" and "white families that" and realize that it's not so clear cut any more, that there are many ways to embrace a family's heritage and history and that children can be raised in any family as long as they are cared for and loved.

And that's my two cents.

happy thursday!

Why hello Hollywood! How's it going? Got anything good for me? Why of course you do, why do I even ask...
  • Starting off this week's bebe cuteness we have one of my favorite little tykes, Kingston Rossdale all decked out in tiger paint with mama Gwen on the slide, seriously precious.

    so darn cute!

  • Also in bebe cuteness little Honor Warren all decked out in pink and lookin cute with mom. And seriously doesn't she look like Nanette's Em? They're like celeb baby twins!


  • Moving on from the bebes and into some other news...Julia Louis-Dreyfuss got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but they spelled her name wrong! No really, they did!...Also, Tyra Banks is writing a book, because she doesn't have enough to do already, haha...Helen Mirren gave herself a kiss as her new wax figure was revealed and I think it might one of the best ones yet...Not just kissing herself, apparently Kendra has more than a couple sex tapes out there! Although that's not really a surprise since she was a Playboy bunny, but still...and Audrina and Ryan Cabrera are apparently still strong and Ryan wears a beanie in the pool, weird.

  • And in some favorites news...
    Apparently Keanu and Charlize Theron were got making out like high schoolers! Say whaaaaat? I mean they were costars twice and I can kind of see them together, but still. Crazy pants.

    Also in favoriteness, Josh and Diane have been gallivanting all around Paris and looking chic and having fun and being all cutesy and man I heart them.

  • In Twilight news...
    There is a Breaking Dawn release date! Say what November 18, 2011??? It still isn't clear if it's one part or two and it also is sounding like it may be Emmett and Alice-less!?! Say it ain't so kidlets and say you aren't holding out for more money!? I mean really! Really!

    Also, are you DVRs set for tomorrow's Oprah with the big three will be on talking Eclipse? Mine is!

  • And in movie news...
    Ghostbusters 3 officially has a release date as well, Christmas 2012. I can't really even imagine how this one is going to go but who knows it could be a success.

    Fast Five has a new driver. Dwayne Johnson has officially joined the Fast and Furious franchise (say that five times fast, haha).

  • And in TV news...
    Top Model. Oh boo. I was so bummed to see Jessica go. Now Raina is my vote for winner, but knowing Ty it'll be freaking Angelea or Krista, ewface. Oh well, as always the best recaps are at Four Four.

    SNL. Funniest freaking episode in oh so long. Betty rocked it and she rocked it good. I don't remember the last time I laughed at EVERY skit on SNL. I think my favorite is the Delicious Dish one though, freaking hilarious. Well that and Sally O'Malley as well. And there was even some unaired skits as well. Check out the whole show rundown in case you missed it.

    Big Bang Theory. Are you watching this show? Because if you're not, you should be. It's amazing. Also. BAZINGA!

    Glee. Well a few things. I'm obsessed with Sue's version of "Physical" I may or may not have listened to it at least 30 times already. Also, where do theses costumes keep coming from?? I mean really. Also, "Jesse's Girl" it. Gah I just love this show, I am such a musical junkie, haha. And Kurt and his dad make my heart melt, seriously precious.

  • Lastly in today's WTF news, South Africa will NOT, I repeat, will NOT run out of beer at the World Cup next month. So don't you worry your beer drinking self at all the beer will be a plenty for all you rowdy soccer fans.

Anything big and crazy I somehow missed? Let me know!

happy wednesday!

Mustaches, a Gummy Bear and the end of an era.

And I'm back. After a brief battle with congestion and exhaustion I am back. Well let's hope so at least.

Anyways, despite the weekend ending sickness it was still a great weekend overall, so here we go.

Friday: After work Matt and I went out to dinner at a new place (well new to us at least), Malbec. Basically it was one of my birthday gifts to Matt, Argentinean food, and it was delicious. We each had a pasta dish and wine and it was just all around a great way to spend the night together. Afterwards we just came home and hung out and watched some TV and drank some more wine and had a lovely evening in.

Saturday: After sleeping in a bit I was on my way to do some present shopping for Matt's birthday party while Matt went off to do some cooking. In the midst of my errands I also managed to find something for myself: Wedding Shoes!! I went and retried on the Steve Madden ones and they were on sale and I was in love, so I just bought them! Don't worry I also got some fun stuff for Matt, like cupcakes and balloons and his gifts, so basically it was a success. After my day o errands I finally went over to Matt's mom's house to help set up for Matt's birthday party. It was also a little bittersweet because it was the last party we'd ever be having at his mom's house since she moves out this week. I can't even begin to count how many parties have been over there since high school but it is definitely the end of an era.

Anyhoozits I had Matt open his birthday presents before the party started and man were they awesome:

a book of dirty Italian phrases and word.

and the world's largest gummy bear!
seriously this thing is amazing, best gift ever.

Awesome right? Pretty much the silliest gifts I could think of giving and I was way too amused with myself. Nonetheless the party started a little after and there was sort of a theme of retro (whatever that meant to anyone) and we just went with it and had a grand ole evening:

my sister and her boyfriend in their best 80s wear.

Matt makes the best faces sometimes, haha.

Matt blowing out his birthday candles, woo!
also loving Steve's moves in the background.

Steve and Kat having a good time.


nothing like playing some beer pong to make the
night awesome.

or how about getting my future mother-in-law
to toss a few? now that is awesome.

Nick and Pat rocking out some ridiculous outfits, love it.

me and Brian making faces with our mustaches!
(thanks Hillary!)

All in all it was a great last hurrah with mustaches and cupcakes and beer pong and crazy clothes and BBQ and laughs and pool dives and ridiculous music selections and great friends and Matt's birthday and all sorts of wonderousness that I'm going to miss.

Sunday: Woke up early and met my family for a nice Mother's Day brunch at El Torito. Nothing like starting the day off with mimosas and Mexican food, yummmay. After brunch Matt and I came home to relax for a bit before heading off to lunch with his family at the Counter. Pretty much it was a lot of food in a short period of time and that whole fit into my wedding dress thing is looking pretty hard lately, haha. After lunch I came home and napped for a long while (staying up til 3 on Saturday definitely requires a nap) before heading to my parent's house for dinner and a movie. My mom, sister and I watched The Wiz since we had just seen the play production a couple months ago. It was pretty good. After that Matt and I headed home and relaxed while I could feel sickness coming on even more so after watching SNL I went to bed and there I stayed until late Monday.

So how was your weekend? Any craziness or silly stories to share?

happy tuesday!

Three years of gorgeous sandy feet.

May 9th marks three years of gorgeous footsteps in the sand (aka pretty sandy feet aka my blog has identity issues), THREE YEARS people. How in the world did that happen?!?

Three years ago I wrote a silly little post and had no idea where this bad boy was going. I mean I wrote in different colors (I still can't get over that, seriously was I in middle school??) and really had no idea what I was doing. Two years ago I couldn't believe I'd stuck with something for so long and thanked the Hills and Violet (among other people) for so much blog inspiration. Last year I couldn't even imagine my life without blogging and thanked anything and everyone that made my writing happen.

And this year, I've got even more thanks to give, so here we go:
  • The fine folks at Nintendo (and Brand About Town). for providing me with some of the best memories and experiences and toys to play with over the past year that ohmygod you guys are the best.

  • Matt. As always you deserve a big thanks for being okay with me sharing our life on the internet. Well that and for letting me take over our new computer night after night because "my readers will be sad if I don't write something!" (haha, no I don't say that, but I do whine. Sometimes.)

  • My freaking fantabulous freaders. To everyone that reads this little blog and whether or not you've commented or emailed me or tweeted me, just knowing that someone is reading my rambling makes me happy. So THANK YOU. Also to the bloggers I've had the pleasure of actually meeting and putting their pictures on this blog because ohmygodwedrankwinetogether, you rock. And to all the bloggers I'm going to meet in Vegas, I thank you too. Just so you don't get all judgey when I run to McDonald's for french fries. Okay? Sweet. Thanks.

  • Simon Baker and Sam Worthington. You guys and your hot Aussieness have given me plenty to swoon over lately and has filled this blog with Aussielicious goodness. So really, when are we going to hang out and go to a pub? I'll drink a beer just for you guys!

  • Red wine and coffee. Thanks for making me feel all adult like and caught up with the rest of society.

  • Twilight. Thanks for weeks on end of blog fodder and obsession material and one of the coolest stories of my life, how about we do it again sometime? Okay?

  • Books. Thanks for reminding me that not everything I read has to be on a screen. Also thanks for inspiring a review blog and GoodReads membership and just awesomeness all around.

  • Violet and Seraphina. Heck let's just thank the whole Garner-Affleck family for being all sorts of adorable and cute and giving me plenty of awwwww inducing blog material as always.

So pretty much thank you everyone for listening to me ramble for three years and let's keep this party going! Come say hi if you never comment, if you always comment, either way let me know you're out there today! And if not, that's okay, go have a birthday cupcake or mimosa or crescent roll, they're all delicious.

happy weekend!
