matchies v2.0

Ive always been told i look familiar to people, and not just from creepy dudes. I guess i have a pretty common face...

 One of these is not me:
Facebook's ads are getting really good

And this was just text'd to me from Myra. Meet her new friend, my long lost twin:
Im the one on the right in case you couldnt tell.


cool guy

I love it when Geoff tries to act like rico suave while doing things.

And then he smacks the squeegee into the car antenna and it bounces the squeegee into his chest

and loses all cool guy composure.
Love it.


Christmas List

I know receiving presents isn't the true meaning of Christmas. But it happens.
I like to think of myself as a practical person in general. Here's whats on my practical Christmas (and in general) gift wish list:

Cake Plates!
Ive made a few from what i could find from thrift shops but i cant help but swoon a little bit when i see genuine vintage milk glass cake platter. I just cant fathom spending $40+ on a used old one. So appreciate them from afar. I do bake enough to where these would get a lot of good use out them... practical. 

Camera Lenses!
A Canon 35mm 1.4 L and 70-200 2.8 L, to be exact. When we film i notice i lean toward the 35mm more than any other lens. And when we are shooting from far, and i need to get up in your grill, the 70-200mm is our go to. Both are a necessity for our company that we currently rent because they are so expensive. Practical.

A Standing Garden Bed!
Sure, i could bend down but that would strain my back. Strap some legs to that garden bed and lets grow our own food without worrying about the dog and gophers invading. Practical!

Im too embarrassed to share with you how bad my current shoes look. My converse, toms and mock moccasins souls are falling out and have holes in the toes. Now i'm not all about overpriced, hipster shoes but they are so comfortable to me. I'm a creature of comfort and i don't care. Practical.

iPhone 4 to go to Verizon!

Macbook Pro 17"!
We want to replace our laptop with the newer Macbook Pro that way we both can be editing at the same time, in separate rooms, on location or while watching TV in the living room. Totally Practical.

Amish Heater!
Our living room is a addition to the house so it doesn't have a/c or heating vents running through it making it the extreme weather room. We don't have a fireplace in our house either and i miss it so much. What could solve both of these issues? THIS. They even make them with DVD shelves and come in black. Hello new TV stand. Plus i think this will hold June's attention longer than her shadow and keep her from staring attentively at nothing with me telling myself shes just looking at angels. Practical.

And what's at the top of my list...

June becoming a dog lover!
Let me clarify, June loves small dogs. Proof: This picture. This time last year my friend Amanda had her dog live with me and June for about 3weeks and June loved Rico. Its just June doesnt realize how big she is and plays too rough with them and i have to watch her like a hawk. Now, with that said, June HATES dogs her size and larger. Like she turns into Cujo. We have no idea why and i've tried contacting the dog whisperer but he didnt get back to me. We really want to have more dogs but we wont while June is still around and still misbehaves around other dogs. Shes lucky shes so dang cute. EXTREME PRACTICAL.

Geoff's Birthday Week begins

Last year for Geoff's birthday we did absolutely nothing. He was gone on tour, i was renting a room from a stranger off craigslist and we were both broke. By the time he came home it was Christmas and Jesus doesnt need to share his birthday with Santa and geoff. So this year i'm trying to do something more special. That included one of his favorite comedians and favorite food.

Since Dave Chappelle and Bill Cosby werent in town, the next best was Daniel Tosh. He was sooo funny! Everyone was wiping tears from their eyes from laughing so hard. I got us really close seats at the gibson, though any seat there is a good seat, and its crazy to think a comedian can fill up the same gibson theater that weezer just sold out the week before.
Daniel Tosh

We tried Pink's Hotdogs. I got a polish dog with mustard and it was so cold. Gross. So not worth the hype.

The next morning i made us heart shaped waffles and bacon while he watched football. I miss eating making breakfast food. I usually dont because of how fattening the waffles, syrup, bacon, muffin, butter, hash browns and all the other extremely delicious breakfast foods are, but its a celebration. So why not?
they kinda look like clovers
We* even hung Christmas lights on our house. Dreams come true people.

Geoff is seriously the hardest working, loving, and funny husband and i cant stop thanking God for giving me him as my husband even though he farts in the bed just to make me uncomfortable. This week hes aiming at working somewhere around 70hrs at his day job. This means he leaves for work at 2am and comes home at 4:30pm everyday. Hes even working Saturdays. Yesterday, im working out to my B.L. dvd in the living room and Geoff's sitting on the couch laughing at me one minute and the next knocked the frick out:
passed out
5:30pm. Face down. Limp limbs.

*we = him. i stood there in the rain and took pictures. im helpful like that.

Sometimes this is how i meet (sorta) geoffs touring buddies:
They come over while we're asleep and we leave when they're asleep.
I'm glad we have the space to help other bands out. We're kinda the perfect resting stop for bands touring SD to OC or LA and aren't from around here.
There are 2 more dudes sleeping in the guestroom but i didn't dare open the door to sneak a picture. yes, i am a creep but i have limits.


4 day weekend

So i am totally for four 10hr work days in order to have a three day weekend. When i get four days it seriously feels like a mini vacation to me. Especially when its as fun as the last one was.

I got out of work early last wednesday and was so excited for the holiday weekend that i broke out my old christmas tree. I figured waiting till the day before thanksgiving was long enough.


Not even one hour after decorating it June somehow knocks it off the table. I dont know how she managed to even get to it but somehow got to the center of a 5' X 5' square table. I can only assume she was chasing a shadow one of the Christmas lights were making. I was so pissed. She broke one of the super cute cupcake ornaments Geoff's mom just got me! Luckily, the shark was spared.

We got to hangout with Chris and Es while they were out visiting.
Watched Geoff play 3 games at the corona turkey bowl in the extreme cold and windy conditions. Being around Jolene and Es made it worth it.
Had our first blended thanksgiving!
The Cook's and Brouillette's
We had the Ron's sit at the heads of the table. Geoff looks like such a prep in this photo. He doesnt even drink wine either.

mmmmm.... deep fried turkey. so healthy and easy on the waistline.

Case and Point:  World, meet baby Geoffrey.
Geoff has always been a slim dude so to see this is shocking. people joked with him and said, "wait till you get married..." but we both didnt believe it would actually happen to him. its a fact now. and i love it!
fat guy
He literally farted on his moms head at this moment
Here's Pat hemming geoffs pants in my moms front lawn. He was in Kirk + Carrie's wedding and the 3-day suit guy made his pants too long and apparently too tight around the waist. 
First Dance

Theres no chance you'll ever see me black friday and i didnt even get pictures of the insane people who spent that cold cold thanksgiving night outside waiting for stores to open at 3am. Its for the birds.
