I have huge plans to do absolutely nothing this weekend and I am so excited! The last two months of weekends have been full of things to do, people to see, and places to go; which sounds like what weekends should be all about, but I need a breather and I need to catch up on my sleep!

See, look, I even fall asleep sitting upright on roofs theses days! Obviously, I’m joking, but I have been super sleepy these last couple of weeks. I’ve definitely been staying up past my bedtime lately!

I know, I know: I am easily amused! I hope you enjoy what entertined me this week!

    • The Kardashions are a not so guilty pleasure of mine; this is pretty much proof that Kylie is trying to take over Kim’s life.
    • I don’t think there is a soul on this planet that has any negative feelings about Hilary Duff. I wish I was her. Since that is not possible, and pretty creepy, I will settle for new music!
    • I know people needed a break from Anne Hathaway for a while, but let’s let it go and embrace this Queen as she deserves! She absolutely killed it on Lip Sync Battle this week! And obviously, Emily Blunt slays as usual.
    • I’m going to need someone to buy me this very perfect dress.
    • I’ve never seen someone so embarassed that their phone went off and isn’t it the most adorable thing?
    • If you add drunk people to fitness quotes things get hilarious.
    • This is the only version of Furious 7 you need to see.
    • This Canadian Raising the Roof to benefit the homeless PSA is heartbreaking. #HumansForHumans.
    • Always think of yourself as beautiful.
    • Even teens today know that the 90’s was the best decade for music. You know I have to shout out that everyone knew I Want it That Way!
    • I may love the music of he 90’s, but I’m glad fashion has upgraded. So are today’s teens.
    • I could barely get through the first episode of the first season, but I am looking forward to checking out the second season of True Detective; Rachel McAdams can do no wrong so I have to give it a shot!

I hope your weekend is full of rest, relaxation and Netflix marathons!

I worked with ModCloth a couple of months ago on a boheimian themed shoot in Joshua Tree, CA and I am so thrilled with how the photos turned out! This was probably my favorite ModCloth shoot so far. I was booked last minute – I’m talking 12 hours before a call time that was 3 hours away last minute – and I’m glad that I had the flexibility to be able to meet them out there with such little warning. We stayed overnight at an Air B’n’B  house, in bunk beds, scaring ourselves with ghost stories and enjoying a really fun dinner out with the crew! It has always been a pleasure to work with ModCloth!

Here are my favorite from the shoot!

Happy Fri-YAY!

This week was a long one. I’m looking forward to seeing some family this weekend and taking it a little slower than the last few. We don’t have any big Easter plans besides brunch and possibly a flea market in Hollywood. I haven’t made the time to find a church in Los Angeles; I do feel a bit strange going to one other than the one I grew up in. Is anyone familiar with any  Catholic churches in the Los Angeles area?

I missed my Friday Favorites last week, but not to worry, you will be fully entertained this week! Click the bold to see what’s been going on!

  • The best uncle in the entire world.
  • Goodness gracious, my biological clock must be ticking because kids are the cutest things ever.
  • From kids to old people. I adore old people. Especially when they have humor!
  • I already loved walking through the rain, but this gives me another reason to.
  • Ok, I would die. Mariah Carey just singing her own songs in the car.
  • Attention Men: Do not read this. All of the maybe one of you that come across this blog: you’ll be sorry. On the other hand, Women: Spot. On.No pun intended. Ok, maybe a little bit.
  • If I didn’t realize it before, I do now; The majority of my Instagram feed is made up of bloggers.
  • I may not be a Directioner, but I am a part of the #BackstreetArmy and I went through the same thing when Kevin Richardson left the group in 2006. Luckily for me, he came back a few years go. There is hope, girls! Until then, there is cookies and sleep overs with your fellow fans.
  • So! Excited! Key & Peele’s Substitute Teacher sketch is being made into a movie!
  • If you don’t love Tom Hanks, I don’t love you. Also, a live action Woody may be the best thing I’ve ever seen.
  • I live in the worst city for traffic, and I can’t blame a guy for trying to get around it!
  • I’ve never been in love with the term “plus size”  – a woman is a woman and her size is her size. Men don’t have clothing ranges for “plus” sizes; why do women have to be scrutinezed for being all types of shapes and sizes?

David and I went zip lining with Action Zipline Tours, in Big Bear, CA this last weekend.

IMG_4889

It was literally the scariest thing I have ever done and I’m not sure that I would it again, but it was really amazing, in hindsight. During the fact, I was terrifed, frozen in fear, speechless, and shaking the entire time. I’m really proud of myself for going through with it! This was David’s Christmas present from me, and I didn’t want to let him down. The tour guides knew how scared I was, and they were sure to let me know I had an out whenever the tower had stairs or a ladder or that I could ride connected to them, but I did it all by myself!

David, on the other hand, is a natural! He had no fear; he lept off backwards, spun around, and zipped around with no hands!

Don’t let the phots fool you; I can’t help but be on for a camera!

If you are interested in zip lining in Southern California, I would definitely recommend Action Zipline Tours! The instructors were very patient and understanding, and although I was scared for my life because of what was in my own head, I was completely confident in the guides and trusted every word they told me. They never made me feel silly for being scared and were encouraging the entire way.

This post is in no way sponsored, so you know it must be true!

Happy Friday!

It has been nice to lay low these last could of days after the craziness of moving and starting a new job all at the same time. We celebrated my Mom’s birthday with a family dinner, home cooked by my brother, which is always a treat! I think I am still full from last night! The rest of my time home will be visiting with friends and family and then I am driving back down to LA solo.  I am aleady planning my next trip home for my cousin’s wedding in May!

Enjoy what I have enjoyed this week!

  • Adding anothing branch to his degrees of separation, Kevin Bacon is finally getting into the bacon business with this short web film.
  • Whoever this was, I would like to be friends with him. C-SPAN should have let him finish; The Fresh Prince of C-Span, ladies and gentlemen.
  • I know you don’t want to admit it, but everyone has binged watched NetFlix, Hulu, HBO, what have you. Do you know there are rules to binge watching? It’s not as easy as it seems!
  • An acoustic version of any song is usually better than the original. Hozier’s acoustic version of “Take Me to Church” is soul wrenching.
  • I used to use abbreviations when I texted, i.e. “U”, “2”, etc. My husband (then boyfriend) once made a comment that he didn’t like it, and I immediately began spelling out every work in texts, and still do to this day. Once he claimed he doesn’t remember saying that, but I’ve kept it up, and typically use proper puncuation, as well. I will never stop the use of my emoticons, however! What kind of texter are you?
  • I assume everoyone has seen Gone Girl by now. If not, don’t click the following link. If you have, you know why I, and the FBI, will be forever creeped out by Rosamund Pike.
  • A man bought thousands of undeveloped negatives from the 1950’s-60’s from an unknown photographer. What he found is stunning. Vivian Maier had a beautiful eye for street photography and it’s so wonderful that her work is now able to be shared.
  • Unless you are new to the blog, you know about my Backstreet Boys obsession. I thought I had seen it all, but I was mistaken. This commercial for Outlooks at Bealls from 1993 is my favorite thing of all time!
  • I am not ashamed: I am a selfie addict. I am also not exactly in love with museums, but I do tolerate them because my husband loves them. I think the best compromise would be to visit the world’s first selfie museum. Yes! The art in this museum is made for you to literally be in it. I’m sorry, I may be super vain, but this sounds like so much fun!
  • Arguably the best segment from The Tonight Show, Lip Sync Battle, is coming to Spike TV! I consider myself a pretty good lip syncer, as I am sure many of my fellow communtors would back me up on, so I think this show may be added to my TV rotation.
  • I take most Yelp reviews with a grain of salt – they seem like they are typically written by irrationally angry people who are projecting, without leaving any constructive criticism. A play off Jimmy Kimmels Mean Tweets, these restaurant staff reading mean reviews on Yelp is actually pretty funny.
  • I will leave you to start your weekend with a strangely adorable chipmunk yawning and streching like a tiny little furry person.

I will never not love a good denim on denim outfit! It is so perfect is so many ways.

These jeans are hand me downs from my Aunt and I was skeptical at first, but I wear them multipe times a week. Would they be considered mom jeans? Maybe cool mom jeans because they’re distressed? Maybe tacky? Whatever they are, I’m a little bit obsessed and very glad her non-returnable online purchase did not work out for her!

Crossroads sent me my new favorite shirt for the Spring, too! I have so many outfits in mind for it. I swear, they know exactly what I’m looking for!

I am headed for a quick trip home to Sacramento this week to see my mom for her birthday and to pick up a few things for our new apartment. With my new work schedule I won’t be able to visit as often, or for as long as I like, so I’ll be enjoying my time home while I can!

How’s your week treating you so far?

I have not been able to say TGIF in a long time and mean it! When I worked at home, and on Saturdays (verrrryyyy early in the morning), I was more thankful for Saturday afternoon naps. This week, however, I am very much into thanking God that it’s Friday!

This photo is from my latest ModCloth shoot. I will share more soon! Stolen from the wonderful Christina Emilie’s Instagram!
I wish all of you babes a beautiful weekend! Please enjoy what made me smile this week! Be forewarned, there are a few tear triggering videos in this listt; happy tears though! I am such a cry baby.
  • Derek Zoolander and Hansel crashed the Valentino runway during Paris Fashion Week and it was like no time had passed at all since 2001! We have to wait an year for the sequal, but this short backstage video may help tide you over.
  • I am perpetually stuck in the 90’s and agree with the fact that 1999 was the greatest year in music. This reads like an overview of my music library.
  • Kids really do say the darndest things! I wish I was this cool when I was little. I wish I was this cool now! I may have a bit more hope for our future now; this little lady has her priorities straight!
  • Dance like no one’s watching! If only we could all have as much fun at work as this flight attendant does.
  • I know old people freak some people out, but I love them and find them so endearing! They have so much knowledge, so much to share, and have loved like we only dream of.  A 70 year old love letter was found in the sleeve of a record, belonging to a WWII vet and made its way back to him. I had to pause this video a few times to cry so many happy, ugly tears.
  • Tom Hanks is really winning the Internets lately: First, he hangs out with his old pal Wilson. Then, he stars in no other than Carly Rae Jepsen’s new music video. Now, he helps the Girl Scouts sell cookies.
  • This may have begun as an advertising gimmick, but the fact that everyone in this small town willingly took their time to take sign language lessons for a month to be able to speak to one hearing impaired man is pretty amazing.
  • I’m a bit behind, but who knew Kevin Spacey was such a great celebrity impressionist! Hilarious!
  •  I apologize for this next one; luckily, you probably still have your tissues handy! I cry at the drop of a hat even thinking about someone close to be passing, and I am so overwhelmed with grief watching this video. How sweet is it for her to get this little bit of help in her dark time.
  • I never went through the college phase of drinking heavily, but I have had my moments. I really resonate with this story of how this woman came out of a year without drinking. I don’t plan on giving it up, but I’m certain that I’ve reach my limits on blackout nights and wasting the next two days paying for it.
  • I am ending this Friday Favorites with a bit of a shameless non-self promotion: My brother’s bar  is nominated for Best Neighborhood Bar in Sacramento and it would mean the world to me if you took 3 seconds to give him a vote. You may not have been there, but you can trust me! Click here!

p.s. I just tried to show my husband the love letter video with the WWII Vet, and I broke down in tears before even pressing play. Seriously, if you’ll only click one link today, click that one.
