Weekend Recap...

I am a few days behind on posting about our weekend, but I’ve been enjoying my summer break so much!! I’ve slept in, organized, made dinner and cookies and caught up on tons of Netflix movies.
Over the weekend we went to IKEA and picked up some adorably cute stuff for our new home office ( and the boy’s work out room), I can’t wait to show photos. We also went and saw “Bridesmaids”…OH MY GEE this movie was so funny!! I am actually mad at myself for waiting for so long to watch this. I think its definitely the Hangover for 2011. (and not that crappy Hangover 2 that just came out) I am in mucho love with Miss Kristin Wigg.

I've been watching Netflix like crazy and the last few days I watched "Revenge of the Bridesmaids", with Raven Symone (another cute funny movie)and "Blue Valentine", with Ryan Gosling  and Michelle Williams. 
(Yes sir, I will take two...LOL)

It was a really good movie, but quite depressing.  I felt like I was looking through someone's window and watching the demise of their marriage.   I still have "No Strings Attached" with Ashton Kutcher to watch, but I have heard horrible reviews about the movie.  Has anyone seen it.

Were planning another trip to IKEA this weekend to pick up more stuff for our new project and I am hoping to run into a cute little 4th of July fair.  (I am in dire need of some corn dog and funnel cake) I also really need to finish up my two DIY projects for the wedding, can't believe there is about 140 days until were "Jumping the Broom". 

In cake updates, here is a picture of my final wedding cake.

(My inspiration on the right (from EatCakeBeMerry Cakes) and my cake on the left.  I was super pleased at how it came out, but it was a lot of hard work.  My favorite part (besides eating all the cake pieces) was doing all the shading and coloring on the flowers.  This was such a learning lesson and really taught me alot.

Counting down for…

A finished wedding cake, drinks and laughs, sleeping in, being awaken by stinky dog breath while trying to sleep in, holding hands and just being relaxed and worry free.

PS - Swooning over pink hair!

Weekend Recap...

I had such a great visit with my little sister; we did a ton of shopping, laughing and tons of eating. We even had a scary encounter when her car randomly shut off on the freeway when I was driving, to my surprise I was the calm one. (Guess my big sister instinct kicked in).

The boy flew in early Saturday morning, and to my disappointment the airport was not near as interesting as my previous visit. My sister literally left a few hours after his arrival so we just kicked back the rest of the weekend and did nada. We finally got project “DEATH OF ERICA CLEANING” done, so it was nice to just lounge around and not have anything to do. (We even got new pillows, so thank you person who invented memory foam you truly are my new GOD!!)

In school news I am currently in advanced cake decorating techniques and were working on our final project, which is a wedding cake. Yesterday was our first day of production and I felt like I worked my booty off. After this class is over we have a week break and then there is only 6 weeks left of school as a whole. I am SO excited to be done and can’t wait to rekindle my relationship with sleep again.  I'm still working on securing the perfect internship.  I've gone on a few interviews but once I get there it doesn't feel right and I don't want to be stuck somewhere that I hate and don't feel like I am getting anything out if it.  So wish me luck on finding something AMAZING!!

This upcoming weekend were planning a trip to IKEA and the bank to open up a joint account. Even though we’ve been together for a long time and have gotten engaged, the thought of opening a joint bank account makes it seem REAL…ha ha.

Oh, is anyone hooked on my new guilty pleasure "My Big Fat Gyspy Wedding", oh my...this show is the hottest of messes and I LOVE IT.  After watching it I am totally thinking we are going in the wrong direction with our wedding.  How hot would I be dressed like this...ha ha!!

Weekend Recap...

I would love to say the reason I didn’t post anything for the last couple of days was due to some exciting, life changing, FABALOUS news, but I can’t. Mainly I was just being lazy and not really feeling like doing much of anything. I am in my last 8 weeks of school and its really taking a toll on me in various ways. I’m exhausted…but what else is new. You would think after almost a year I would be adjusted to these changes, but I am up around 6 in the morning and I am literally just getting in my car to leave school around 11pm….I miss sleep…I feel unhealthy and unfocused. I just can’t wait to GRADUATE and finally start focusing on my dream job. (or a full week of good sleep...LOL)

Moving onto more positive things, my little sister is visiting for a whole week and I am so excited. (Even though I will be at work and school most of her visit…BOO!!)


The boy is away on the East coast for the week and I am so proud to say graduating with his 2nd Masters Degree. (Can I just comment on how entertained I was at 4:00 am in the airport.  Lets just say that their are some real characters flying and the things people where.  I am thinking about making it a weekend habit of people watching...set up with a big bucket of popcorn...ha ha)

The sis and I spent the weekend doing some major damage at the mall and then went and saw "Super 8", which was really good.  It went in a different direction than I expected, but it was very enjoyable, I also loved that even though you were jumping from being scared you were laughing too.  I highly recommend checking it out. 

The rest of the weekend was spent laughing and just having a good time.  With how I have been feeling lately it was a nice change.

Drum Roll Please...

Okay, my process for picking the winner. I collected all the emails address, calculated them up, put that number in that random number generator thingies…and BAM…..the winner was selected…
Ashley Rooks

So, please email me your mailing address and to make things easier (because MAC can be kind of tricky) email both the lipstick and blush color you would want and that way if one is sold out I can pick up the other.

Thank you everyone else who entered my little giveaway, I wish I could send everyone something, but then I wouldn’t have money to continue my own hoarding tendencies…LOL!

During lunch I found the funniest greeting cards(which I needed after dealing with all the "charming" people who called me today) and had to share some that made me literally laugh out loud!! 

The company that makes them is BaldGuyGreetings, and they CRACK ME UP.  You can check out more on their website here.

PS - Did anyone else notice my little screw up in my title from yesterday.  Thats what lack of sleep does to you....turns your brain into MUSH!!
