Busy times*

I am currently sitting outside of Daniel's Media Law class. I was his passenger on his way back to BSU last night. Our current plan is to leave the campus around 3:15 (after his PE class) and head to the airport. He has a 6:15pm flight to Burbank. He has an interview tomorrow at 11am at Appian Way, a company owned by Leonardo Dicaprio, which deals on picking what movies he will be apart of. Then at 1pm he has another interview (at the moment I can't remember the company). Then he has to go to LAX to catch a flight home!

Today I also booked my flight for May 14, the day I head back to Indiana after driving with Daniel to Los Angeles! More on that later~ we will be spending the summer apart though! Bittersweet....

Julie & Julia

I am not much of a reader, but I do own a copy of Julie and Julia. When the movie was in theaters Daniel and I saw it together. I was really pleased with how the movie turned out. Anyways, I re-watched it tonight and while doing so I looked up recipes for Daniel and I to fix this fall.

Neither of us are really good at cooking. I never cook, never felt the urge to until recently, but I only want to cook with Daniel. Daniel never had to cook until California. That was a funny experience that dealt with a lot of burnt of food. So we ended up eating out a lot. But this time I want us to cook for experience. We aren't one of those couples that starts a fight if one of us messes up, so I think it would be something fun. We have to spend the money on food anyways, while not make it something special we do together.

So stay tuned for this fall and our adventures with cooking!!*

Cheap Find*

I was hungry for lunch yesterday so I drove to Wendy's to get a Junior Bacon Cheeseburger and I decided to walk into the Dollar Tree. I found this little bird as a cute little decoration, plus I bought three more* (He's sitting on magnets from Paris) Maybe a cute cake topper with another bird?*

Guest Book Pens

When we were shopping in Scottsdale on Saturday morning Daniel & I found these pens at Anthropologie! While in our apartment I might stick them in some fake flowers, but for the wedding they would be perfect as guest book pens!

trip to phoenix

Yesterday Daniel and I got back from Phoenix where we visited his mom and saw Muse in concert (twice). The above picture is Daniel & I hanging by the pool while Starla and Bruce were still at work on Friday. We were outside for about an hour and a half, soaking in the sun. Once they returned from work we went to Roka Akor, a Japaneses restaurant where we allowed Bruce to order for us. Of course I enjoyed the California Roll, and there was another one I liked, I should have asked for the name. From there we headed to downtown Phoenix for Daniel's favorite band (they are in my top 5).
The above picture was taken at the beginning of the concert. We were seated in row 11, which was perfect since the stage was higher then normal. The three towers behind us was actually a cloth that was dropped down once the band, who was inside the cloth, started playing. They had blocks that raised them up and down that also were used as projector screens. Hopefully Daniel will have some time to edit a video from the clips I filmed, the whole concert was amazing. I was not screaming or jumping up and down like so many other people, but it was midnight Indiana time and I had been up since 6am. All four of us had a great time though!! On Saturday we slept in til 10am there time (1pm our time)! But it was much needed! We spent the first two hours shopping at a nice outdoor mall of which the side walks were lined with colorful flowers that smelled beautiful. I ended up getting two sun dresses. Starla bought me a few things, including some earrings for Micheal and Kayleigh's wedding! Our afternoon was spent golfing! The picture below is at the beginning of the outing. These was only my second time golfing, so I didn't succeed. My favorite part was driving the golf cart with Starla as my passenger and seeing all the cute bunnies! Daniel did good comparing he just started golfing last summer and hasn't golf since!
On Sunday we picked up Bruce's daughter, Alex, to come with us to a radio station concert that was hosting a few bands, we went for 30 Seconds to Mars and Muse. Before we saw Percy Jackson and the Lighting Theft, which was good. It made me want to learn about the Greek Gods. The picture of us below is us sitting in the back of the concert field waiting for our bands to play. once we got there we realized it was definitely not in our comfort zone and we should have just spent the day with his mom! We listened to a few songs from Muse (the last band of the night) but as soon as a huge fight broke out next to us, we realized it was time to head, plus we still had a two hour drive back to Scottsdale!

Late Spring is the perfect time to visit the Phoenix area! The weather was perfect and because of all the rain from the winter the flowers were gorgeous! It is always great to visit with Starla and catch up on all the family gossip! Plus Bruce and Alex are great people, who I hope stay in her life for awhile! She is flying in for Mother's Day weekend! And hopefully I will see her this summer before or after Daniel is in LA.

Getting ready for Phoenix*

Tomorrow morning Daniel and I will be heading to Phoenix to visit his mom and see our favorite band Muse (British band, who rarely tours in the US), twice! His mom has taken care of us and as far as I know as always supported our relationship. As a couple this will be our 5th visit to her in Phoenix, but the first at Bruce's home in Scottsdale. I have only been around Bruce twice and we like him for the one fact- that he takes care of her and makes her happy. She needs someone to take care of her and we are luckily that she has found someone who completes her. We have heard from Lindsay that Bruce's house has a lot of character, she wrote about it in her blog
So, Daniel and I have had a busy week and we are really looking forward to coming! Daniel and I also get to meet Bruce's only daughter, Alexandria, who we are friends with on Facebook. I will either be blogging while there or shortly after I get back. Phoenix, here we come!*~

Our Bedroom theme*

We decided to do our upcoming apartment bedroom like our wedding with the love birds in nature. The above picture is a little bird bath that I found at Micheal's Craft store. It only cost me $5! Below is the pillow we found at Walmart for $13.
The bedding below is the bedding we planning on buying. Since it is so green a lot of the stuff in the room will be brown, tan, and wood.
The picture below is something we would like to put over the bed. I am not sure if we will go with the one below, but it gives you an idea! (found on

Wedding Theme*

Below is the theme and colors we've decided for our wedding next Spring* But likely we will try to find a blue that matches*
