yes, i am aware that this is like blog-update-overload, but get over it. i had a whole crew over for our hsm3 dvd release party last friday (thank you to all those who came to support). we didnt watch it on the sing-along version, but lets be honest...i probably will tonight. anyway...i encouraged everyone to come in hsm gear or their pajamas. everyone was into it and totally came decked out (aubrey and clan :-), but i was most pleased by warren's enthusiasm for the night. he has never seen any hsm's, but dressed to impress in his pj's. in these pj's to be exact....

and the little dog is teddy. i babysat him for wee man a couple days last week and i LOVE him. i even let him sleep in my bed. teddy that is....

the ONLY 2 pics taken.

warren and i went to vegas this past weekend to visit nate, stacie and their girls - and had a BLAST!! sadly, these are the only 2 pics to document the weekend. yes, that is me...un-showered and disgusting holding my niece bella who is making a pleasant face. and yes, that is nate looking at warren's back molar, poking it with a safety pin to assess if he has a cavity. viva las vegas! thanks for the fun weekend guys - we LOVED it!!

new shoes.

i have been on this total shoe fetish as of late. here are 3 pair i have bought in the last 3 weeks. sorry that the pics arent totally pro, but hopefully you can get the idea!

ps - i am like 6'2" in the last ones...and i LOVE them.

what decorating style are you?

i took a quiz on www.sproost.com to see what my personal decorating style is (mostly just to prove to warren that i am not gothic) here are the results!!!!

French Eclectic

Parlez-vous fran├žais? Even if the answer is no, you can confidently say your home does! French Eclectic somehow manages to be both formal and casual, classy and unassuming at the same time. You like your spaces to feel inviting from the moment you (or your guest) opens the front door and this feeling should continue even after you've entered your most formal room.
Even though there are French antiques here and gold details there, the rustic country elements provide a balance and warmth that seems to say, "come in, relax and stay a while." Your love of antiques leads you to flea markets, garage sales and hours of eBay hunting.

sooo.....i dont know about that last part. i think that may be more like sarah. but i like the pic. no gothic. i win :-)

i was trying to post this with my v-day post, but my internet has been RETARDED. so...here it is now!! warren and i went with john and shelly to see phantom of the opera at the pantages in LA. yes, double date with the parents a day before v-day. and LOVED it. and we may or may not have been sitting directly in front and behind eachother during the first act (yes, warren and i) but we snagged a couple seats in the same row for the second act. what? it was a last minute plan with the parentals, so beggars couldnt be choosers. anyway - thanks parents!!

happy belated v-day.

our v-day was fabulous!!! warren did a FANTASTIC job. i loved every second of it. he surprised me in the morning with this beautiful marble red rose and then we enjoyed an amazing dinner at this cute little italian place at crystal cove in newport coast. it was....incredible. then we spent the remainder of the evening at yes....stake conference. no better way than to strengthen our already amazing bond then with the spirit :-) then maybe we came home to watch a cheesy love story, "somewhere in time." and let me tell you - do NOT waste your time. it was soooo bizarre. time travel? i mean honestly. but i do love jane seymor (aka: dr. quin, medicine woman) and maybe i think christopher reeve is cute (bc he kinda resembles zac efron), but it was just odd. happy belated v-day everyone. hope you had a good one.....bc i definitely lucked out this year.

look familiar?

before i tell you WHERE i got this dress, just decide on if you like it or not. STOP READING UNTIL YOU HAVE DECIDED. i resurrected this old dance costume to wear out last night. just pinned up the back to make a little tail feather train. it was a smash hit! thought about NOT giving away my secret, but this one was too good! do you like?? or do you hate?? and yes - i am ridiculous. thanks for reading.
