best. wedding gift. ever.

I know this has already made its way around the blog world but if you haven't seen it, you're missing out! Davis and his groomsman surprised Becca with this dance at their reception and pretty much blew everyone away. Davis can moooove! I just love these boys. More on the wedding later.

little j is MARRIED!

My bestest friend is a wife these days. Saturday was Jackie's wedding, and it was SOOOO beautiful. It's funny because she has always been the independent one who didn't want to get married for years, yet here we are! She looked amazing and was so happy and relaxed. We hung out the night before, and it was really strange that it was her last night as a single lady! Her and Brandon will be so happy together. The reception was at Bears Best (so pretty!) and it was a blast- prime rib, chocolate fountain, a great DJ and tons of dancing. What more could you ask for? I say nothing. All us girls were bridesmaids and we had so much fun with the pictures and everything. Me and Court even stole a golf cart and went on a goose chasing excursion by the lake... highlight of the night for sure! Our flowers were seriously the prettiest bouquets I've ever seen... all different shades of pink roses. I didn't take too many pictures, but I can't wait to see all the fun one the photographers took! Next up is the big Becca and Davis wedding this Saturday. Bridesmaid round 2! Anyways, I love Jackie and Brandon and can't wait to hear all about there honeymoon adventures in Mexico! Jackie you're MARRIED!!


Thursday was my 21st birthday! Holler. One year older and wiser, too. It was kind of a weird birthday cause it was also the day of Jackie and Becca's bachelorette party, planned by yours truly. Oh, and sammy too... she's the best. So all day I was running errands to get ready and I pretty much just forgot it was my birthday! That is until we got to the Hard Rock, where I played the slots. I'm so rebellious. Sam gave me 5 bucks to put in the Deal or No Deal machine and I lost it all, but of course she turned her 5 dollars into 40! Some people have all the luck. It was fun but I didn't even get carded haha. We had a room at the Hard Rock for the party, and it was super nice! I would stay there again for sure. We all met for dinner, which was a pretty raunchy affair that will remain picture-less... sorry. Then we went back to the hotel and hung out/celebrated/drank some sparkling cider. Like I said, rebellious. It turned out to be a huge success, I think the girls had a lot of fun! I can't say I'm sad its over, because I'm not a fan of planning things. I think I officially retire from party planning at this point.

Cupcakery... Happy Birthday to me!

Some creepy Columbian came to "help" play the slots... no thanks. We split.

Amp shots!


I finally got to go to the Mexico house! I loved it. It was really really nice and comfortable and in a safe area... oh yeah and who knew they had Wal-Marts in Mexico? I didn't. Wal-Mart is taking over the world. Anyways, the water was still pretty cold so we just hung out and tanned and read and watched movies. It was a very relaxing weekend. The taco stand down the street was AMAZING... best carne asada taco ever. And the tamales were fantastic as well! You know me, all about the food. And my mom made the same mistake I made my first year of college... don't put dish soap in the dishwasher. You'll see in the pictures, but it was REALLY funny. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I beat my dad in pool! Holla... Here's some photographs. Enjoy.

it was a good day.

This is what my Saturday consisted of.
Woke up to my father opening the blinds at 10:30, this morning he skipped the wake up rap he usually likes to perform.
Rolled outta bed 15 mins later, searched for something to wear in my closet.
Decided on my new navy blue long dress from Old Navy, it's very summer & makes me feel mature. Jackie would be proud.
Looked in the mirror and decided my hair still help up from the night before and left it. Is that bad?
Departed with the fam to Town Square
Ate a delicious lunch at CPK... pepperoni pizza for me. I'm easily pleased.
Walked over to the movie theater to see UP in 3D. The town square theater is super nice, I really like it!
Cried within the first 5 minutes of UP... if you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about
Loved the movie so so much and then walked over to Yougurtland! Oh man, that place is good.
Had a mixture of coconut, bananas foster, and chocolate yogurts... it was good. Tasted like a frozen banana from Disneyland.
Went home and caught up with the Kardashians, they are so entertaining!
My dad set up Gram's bed for me so I don't have to sleep on a mattress on the floor anymore! YES!
Took a little trip to Target with my ma. Got some really cute scrapbooking supplies (yes, I scrapbook now. I feel it appropriate since I already conquered quilting and making meatloaf.)
Side note: Who do you always see someone you know at Target? I really don't think I've ever been to the one in Boca Park without running into someone. That's why you can't go to Target all nasty.
Me and mom went to the sale at Bath and Body Works and went all out... and I mean all out. You'd be surprised at how much stuff you can rack up at that place. Let's just say I'm now set with all my bath supplies/lotions/air fresheners.
Mom went to the grocery store, I went to the pet store to look a puppies. Now, I'm not an animal person, but I LOVE little pups! But really only the ones that stay little, cuz what's the fun in having a puppy if it's just gonna get really big? I want a little maltese that was there.
Creepy guy in the pet store told me about how he saw the Beatles in concert when he was 5. He felt compelled to tell me, since I was wearing my Beatles shirt and all. Then he told me about how his neighbor sold John Lennon a cow back in the day. Didn't John Lennon live in New York? I don't think Yoko would let a cow live in there apartment. Hmmm...
Came home, chilled, caught up on some shows, then my friends cam over and watched Transformers, which I hadn't seen until now. I liked it. I like my friends too.
And then I went to bed. The end.

I liked this day.
