sarah - you will love this. i am having this NEW found obsession with antiques - chandeliers in particular. i was obsessing over finding a chandelier lamp (like ones i saw at a boutique on balboa island last week). i almost even bought one off the boutique owner bc i was loving these amazing chandelier lamps (which i classify as victorian, whimsical or fansical...and warren calls them gothic). anyway - she was seriously about to rip me off, and then admitted to finding these gems at tj max home goods!! so i went. and fell in l.o.v.e. This store is amazing. i want to decorate my WHOLE house in it. i ended up buying a darling victorian style bed side lamp and a beautiful crystal circle hanging chandelier. and i LOVE them. had to rearrange my room to make them look appropriate. warren is still convinced that i am in some "gothic" phase, but is still supportive. he even (get ready for the blog brag) planned a cute date for us this past weekend around my new found antique chandelier obsession! he took me to downtown orange (antique capital of the u.s. of a) and saw all the cool shops and antiques - it was AMAZING!! and there were PLENTY of chandeliers to see. sarah - you would be obsessed. hands down obsessed. you've gotta come - you would die. anyway....LOVE my new objects of light. and really liking warren for his observant, thoughtful and sweet date. the end.

lisa and i are learning this....

and it would be pretty hilarious if someone walked into our house while we are attempting to pop 'n lock. jk. but we do love the choreagraphy. i took a ballet class earlier this week at jimmy defore in costa mesa. kicked my butt. all the girls taking class are auditioning for companies right now - and AMAZING. needless to say it has been a tad bit difficult walking the past couple days, especially stairs. so out of shape. i miss dance, but coming back and sucking so it really worth it? maybe i should just stick with browsing random dance videos on youtube and the occasional attempt to learn a dance from the video. maybe you guys will get lucky and lisa and i will post us doing the dance once we have learned it. but dont hold your breath.

went to the newport temple last night to do baptisms - and LOVED it. it was such a cool experience being there with good friends from our ward. really did feel like a family. i am so grateful for the church and my knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ. i dont know where i would be in my life without it. i cant wait to go back to the temple next week with my old roomies!!

Girls NIght!

we had a girls party 80s dancing night!! yes. i am wearing a tutu. there is a small bar/club down in laguna beach called ocean's that has 80s dancing every tuesday night. we are NO strangers to oceans, but this is the largest group of ALL girls we have had come at once. love the girls down here in hb. probably the nicest group of girls in a ward i have ever had. and they all love to DANCE - which i love, of course. girls rule, boys drool!!!

big bear 2009....suckas!

we brought in the new year by squeezing 30 of our closest friends into a cabin that fits 13. and it was AWESOME. no - i did NOT snowboard, but i am a seasoned hot chocolate and lounging girl. i will spare you the pictures of warren and i in our matching long johns, but hope you like the little glimpse into our 2 day trip! oh - and HAPPY BDAY LISA!! she is a new years baby (second born her year - dangit to that child in ohio). ily.


the annual christmas potluck was hosted by dachtler this year, and the nutcracker decor was AMAZING. i swear every inch of that house was covered in the theme. LOVED seeing my old friendies from high school (although we missed a couple of you). i was the only child at home this year (due to siblings being married and having in-laws) so i was able to spend a lot of time with friends. we even went out on the town dancing one night! holidays = good times.
