catching up

Lets see... last week was slammed packed with so many awesome things that it was on the border of not being awesome.
not complaining, i swear.
We had one of our best friends april + jason getting married and we were filming their wedding and i was also making their cake, cakepops and cupcakes, filming a promo of the new South Hills album at a studio in fullerton, working on a rushed video for a company that i contractually cant say nor tell you what its about thats how serious that job was (and yes this is me name dropping a unnameable company), whilst working my normal 9-5 and getting a whole day of jury duty.  
Luckily, Geoff helped me out so much and so did many of my friends with the baking duties. And the wedding was one of the most fun and love filled weddings ive been to. I love Love.
God has been really throwing out a ton of opportunities at us for our small growing business. Im so so excited. When im at work all day all i think about is going home and working on editing things we shot and im looking up how to be better. Heather and grayson stayed the night with us on saturday and i seriously just picked her brain for the whole weekend they were here haha. I miss them. Maybe they can talk geoff into relocating to washington. Im not opposed!   
Things have been amazing and wonderful and super busy but im starting to get used to the busy schedule again. I got so used to punching out after work and just hanging out and relaxing that i kinda miss it. This stress though is reeking havoc on my face and my body. I had no time to make healthy dinners so i'd eat some dino-chickies and tots. ten year's taste buds, i know. i swear ive gone up 2 pant sizes since we got married too. you'd think knowing you have to be naked in front of someone would make you eat less and be skinnier but no. (sorry dad and pat if thats tmi!)


A house plant

Never ever did i think i would ever want something so bad from Tom's Farms Home Furnishings
But, alas, here we are...


Riverside Juror Lounge

My view for the past few hrs. Not pictured: the two large women that, out of all the empty seats, decided to sit right on either side of me. Guess I have a welcoming face.




...because you will cry.
my heart is broken right now. i cant imagine what it feels like to feel so hopeless that theres no other way out.

what can i do to stop a kid from killing themselves because they feel they're different? why cant people teach their kids to play nice and themselves be good examples? why is being gay where people want to draw a line in the sand?


Stop Child Trafficking Now

A few weeks back geoff and i joined up with a group from remnant to do a child sex trafficking awareness walk in laguna beach. I was on a "camp high", if you will, from just attending shade trees workshop but still hesitant to bring my camera. im so glad i did though. even though it was incredibly hot and sweaty at the beach we had a great time. i wasnt aware that so many people had no idea about kids getting trafficked in our cities, let alone our country. its not just something that happens in other countries. it happens all the time in our counties. please help out by going to these websites and seeing how you can help save these babies, kids, and woman who are trapped in daily sex slavery against their will.

Here's a little ditty i made of our awareness walk:

Dimple Den

I threw my lovely friend Kristina a bridal shower a few weeks ago and i was all excited to take a bunch of picture with my camera and really try to be more of that friend who always takes pictures because i never do. heres what i captured from the party:

Amy and Jessica playing games

Jolene and Ezra playing

Between April and i taking pictures id say 90% of them were all Ezra being super adorable. could you blame us?


Stater Bros

Rainy weather  +  Lake Elsinore =

Baby Haley

Haley Stires
7lbs 12oz
21in long

One of my oldest and bestestses, Rachelle, was always the motherly type. even when we were kids she was the only one of us that could cook a whole meal by herself and used more than just windex to clean her room. mother of the year material, right?? she just had her second kid!
 so cuuuuute... when i walked into the room my face immediately started doing that ugly scrunch that you cant fight and i started bawling. just a wave of all kinds of emotions + pms i guess. its so crazy that i was just feeling baby haley's butt through rachelles belly two nights before and then she was just laying there next to her. insane. kids having kids! congrats to rachelle and harley! youre amazing parents and i love you both <3


Why yes that is a avocado as big as my face. Guacamole for dinner!
