Orange Shoes, Clothespins, and Pins

So I found this blog through a couple of different blogs. And I thought I would share it. Its a cute little blog. I liked this particular post because honestly, my favorite color is orange. And I just love her orange shoes!


And I like the creativity of the wedding -- specifically, the clothespins seating arrangement and the custom made pins. I thought they were cool. What do
you think?


Happy Friday everyone!

Can't Slow Down

So! I didn't know Foreigner was coming out with a brand new album! I just went to their website to see if they were going on tour again.. Well they are but not here. Mostly back East and Europe. :( But I had a few different windows open and this music came on.. I liked it. I didn't know who it was because I was looking at different band websites. So I was a little confused where it was coming from.

Their album comes out 3.1.2010. That's super soon! I would love to hear it. I like their single, "Can't Slow Down" its very modern. At least I think. I actually thought they sounded like Daughtry when I didn't know who it was at first.. I think that's a compliment to both bands. I don't know, I like Foreigner.. Juke Box Hero is my all-time favorite. They haven't had a new single in FIFTEEN YEARS. How crazy is that? Maybe they will make a comeback, eh? Of course they have new band members. What do you expect? Here's a vid:



You like? I like. I also found these songs on youtube: I can't give up & Angel Tonight

Favorite Movie Monday

The Wedding Date starring Debra Messing, Dermot Mulroney, and Amy Adams.



I love this movie. Total chick flick romance. Normally not my cup of tea, but every now and then, I love them. I saw this with my sister for the first time in the theatre when it came out. Messing is hilarious and Dermot Mulroney is very charming. Watch it. :)

I'm going to.......

DAUGHTRY!!! I'm ecstatic! Lifehouse is touring with him so that'll be cool too! My sister, brother, and I are going! Its April 22 and I can't wait!

A HUGE Concert Announcement happened this last week! U2 IS COMING! June 3rd at Rice Eccles! I'm so going to go see them again. They were amazing in Phoenix with the Black Eyed Peas. Tix go on sale this Monday! Woot! :)

I just had to share some awesome news with you. haha.

I'll be seeing another concert July 30th.... Who? TIM MCGRAW!!! I've never seen him in concert before but have always wanted to. He's pretty much the only country singer I would absolutely love to see! Don't get me wrong, Kenny Chesney was a lot of fun. But Tim McGraw is my favorite. And it looks like his concerts are amazing. SO I'm excited.

bullet The Hurt Locker
bullet The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
bullet Invictus
bullet Julie & Julia

bullet Star Trek
bullet Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
bullet Up in the Air
bullet The Young Victoria
check Avatar

Favorite Movie Monday

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and Geoffrey Rush



I LOVE this movie. This is classic. Captain Jack Sparrow is hilarious. I like the series, but the first one is always the best, and then the third and the second usually comes in last. At least for me. They are making a fourth one. I hope its good. The Release Date right now is May 20, 2011 but the movie is only in pre-production so who knows. Its called Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Also, Disney's Head of Production, Oren Aviv, has said that the fourth movie will hopefully be the beginning of a new trilogy; which could be cool. I think.

Pintel: You're supposed to be dead!
Jack Sparrow: Am I not?

Revamped Short Update

So I've revamped my blog just a bit. I just made small tweaks; I removed some stuff, cleaned it up, added some stuff. The snowy mountains are only for the Olympics so that will be changed Feb 28 or so. Hopefully. Do you like? I think I like the blue. I had a three day weekend this week so that was really nice. I wish it was longer, as always, but life must go on.

Yesterday, I went to my cousin's baby shower. That was fun. We had good food which is not normal for showers. They always have food I hate. But she had taco salads and they were delicious. Then, I went to my brother's basketball game. I never get to go to any of them because I work in retail and I always work Saturdays. So I'm glad I got to see a game. Next week I'll see his last game because Jean was so nice to switch with me. And then, I went babysitting. I babysat little Sam. He was adorable, he just loves playing with the light switches.

I'm back to Twitter. I was gone for 4 months and now I'm back. Today. We'll see how long it lasts. :)

I'm loving the Olympics! Yay for Apolo! :) I'm glad Canada finally won a Gold medal on their home soil for the first time ever by Bilodeau for Men's Moguls. And on a very sad note, my heart goes out to the Luger that died on Friday in training. RIP Nodar Kumaritashvili of Georgia.

Have a good week everyone.

"Gaily I lived as ease and nature taught,
And spent my little life without a thought,
And am amazed that Death, that tyrant grim,
Should think of me, who never thought of him."

With Glowing Hearts

2010 Vancouver Olympic Games begin today! I'm excited. I love the Olympics. I can never decide if I like Summer or Winter Olympics more. I always lean toward Summer until I watch the Winter Olympics. What's your favorite, Summer or Winter?

Some of my favorite events for Winter are the Speed Skating - Apolo Anton Ohno! Figure Skating, Snowboarding, Freestyle Skiing, Ski Jumping, and the Luge and Bobsleigh are pretty cool too. What's your favorite?

And I love the Opening Ceremonies. :)

Я учусь говорить на русском языке

The title of this post is, "I am learning to speak Russian" in Russian. They have awesome letters. Its a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I've only learned a few words and phrases. Its always fun to learn another language. How am I learning Russian? My coworker, Lana. She is Russian. She is a funny lady. She has to say the words in Russian a few times before I actually understand how to pronounce it. haha. Here is what I've learned so far:

привет - Hello, You pronounce it like prih vee ette
как - Вы - How are you? pronounced kak dela
хороший - Good, pronounced harasho
и Вы? - And you? pronounced owtibya
мое название - My name is, pronounced men yaza voot
как ваше имя - What's your name? kak tibyaza voot
прощайте - Bye, paka
доброй ночи - Good night, spakoni noche
да - Yes, da
нет - No, niet
сука - Bitch, suka
сделайте Вы говорите на русском языке - Do you speak Russian? Ti gavariche pa Russki?
Я говорю на русском языке - I speak Russian, Ya gavaru pa Russki
немного - A little bit, niem noga
я также - Me too, ya toja (the j is very soft like an sh with a j sound)
спасибо - Thank you, spa sea bah
пожалуйста - You're welcome, Pojowvusta (the j is soft again)
не хороший - Not good, nie ochen harasho
замечательный - Wonderful, pikrasna



I'm not sure on the Russian letters because we haven't learned our letters yet. haha. So I just used Free Translation, and sometimes that site is off. I would love to go to Russia someday. I've always wanted one of those awesome hats and a Matryoshka doll. And their architecture is amazing. I want to see some of those onion domes! :)

Favorite Movie Monday

The Matrix Trilogy featuring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne from the Wachowski brothers.



I absolutely love this series! Its so out there but believable at the same time. And the fight sequences are pretty awesome too. The first Matrix is my favorite though. The first is always the best.

I find the map and draw a straight line

There are so many movies I really want to see but the lack of green paper is holding me back. :( The most recent movie I'm excited to see and hopefully will see asap!

Dear John starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried



Its based on the book by Nicholas Sparks. Every time the trailer comes on the TV, I get excited and have to watch it. Even when I'm watching a show I've recorded. I stop to watch it. I even really like the song that plays on it. Am I crazy? It comes out today, Friday, February 5th. :)

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

Favorite Movie Monday

West Side Story featuring Natalie Wood.



This is one of the best musicals ever. Its an old movie, which is good. Its a classic. It won 10 Academy Awards so it has to be good right? :)

Ice: [singing] Play it cool boy, real cool.
