Updates! Updates! Updates!

I am alive!! Want the good news or the bad news first?

Good news! Okay: I am going to continue blogging again. Apparently I just have not been inspired lately, but the inspiration is back :) Hurray!

Bad news? I'm moving blogs. I have a bunch of friends who are trying out Wordpress.com instead of Blogspot and I decided to join them. I feel like a new "home" for my blog will be a nice fresh start for some new blogs.

My new "home" is here

So please, come visit!! :) I'm super excited

A Wonderful Quote

"That thing, that moment, when you kiss someone and everything around you becomes hazy and the only thing in focus is you and this person, and you realize that that person is the only person you're supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. And for one moment you get this amazing gift. And you want to laugh, and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that it will go away all at the same time." - A Walk to Remember

Easter Time! (Just a few weeks late)


First off, Happy Late Easter! It's way overdue, but I still wanted to share with you all what went on in our household for the weekend. My mom sent me some handcrafted goodies via UPS for Easter, and she made sure to include some annoying little paper goodies for Sidd to play with so he wouldn't feel left out. The video of him enjoying his present is below :)

I actually spent Easter day working, and Kevin enjoyed being at home and playing some WoW.
As much as we love Sidd, he is just a little to much for us to handle. Being a Siamese cat, he needs constant attention and it is recommended that you get Siamese cats in pairs. He just isn't happy being alone or on his own. Obviously, just one cat in our condo is enough .... so two cats wouldn't work out well. After school is out, Kevin and I are going to AZ for the weekend and we are going to let Sidd live with my mom and company in AZ. My mom has a bunch of animals and Sidd and them can have fun playing :) It will be more fair for Sidd, and it will save Kevin and I's sanity!

At least we tried :) And now ... I shall go back to writing my paper while Sidd peeks his head over my laptop.

I've just been so busy with writing papers lately ...... oh, the joy of it all. Three more weeks of classes, then FINALS!

Dodger vacation in Arizona


For a Christmas present, my mom bought Kevin and me some tickets to the Dodger spring training games in AZ :) We took Nick with us .... and off we went!


(this is my personal favorite shot ... heh heh)


It was a fun weekend in AZ, and we were able to spend the night at my Mom's house. So I got some Dodger love in .... some family love in ..... and some animal love too <3

Mmmm ..... cupcake coma


Happy Birthday Cupcakes!

For my nephew Sean's 2nd birthday party, I decided to take on the task of making his birthday cake :) So ... the creativity wheel began to spin and off I went!


I made a bunch of cupcakes to the party's theme: Disney's Cars movie. I made funfetti cupcakes with a cream cheese icing and then had fun with the decorations :)

And as you can tell .... they were enjoyed immensely :)

A lovely weekend getaway keeps the doctors away

It was time for a vacation and a birthday celebration, which ended up taking Kevin and I towards the lovely town of San Diego :)
We were able to stay at the San Diego Hilton Resort & Spa (totally a 5 star rating from us) and we decided to just play the weekend by however we felt. The best part was that everything was pretty much my choice as my present from Kevin, so of course we were able to get some shopping and Borders thrown into the weekend. We went to Sea World on Sunday and had a bunch of fun just walking around.

Here was our dolphin friend saying "hello" to us :)












We pretty much hit up all the attractions that we could, and I have to admit I got extremely creeped out with the eels (ugh). Although apparently we share the same nose shape, lol.


So after our Seaworld trip, we had fun and got some dinner and drinks and enjoyed our time. The next day we hit up some more shopping (more like good ol' window shopping) and we went to Shoreline Village which is a cute little place full of shops and just gorgeous views. We met a little friend who I would like to name "Carrie Bradshaw" because he/she was quite the bird in the city.

We were having fun feeding him some chocolate chip coffe cake and watching him fight off his friends. He claimed us and definitely wasn't in the mood to share! And of course .... some little kid came by and decided to chase our friend off. ( Thanks buddy :P )


So after some fun in good ol' San Diego .... Kevin and I took the city streets home and stopped by a fun beach we saw, collected some rocks and pebbles, and headed back to home sweet home :)

Introducing ...

Sidd!


Sidd is the new addition to our family :)

On our trip to Arizona for Christmas, my mom surprised me with a cat for my present. She knew I had wanted the company of an animal for a while now .... so she took it upon herself to fix that!

Sidd (which is short for Siddhartha) is an original Siamese breed (rather than those "new" Siamese cats that are bred for shows and such, the ones with the skinny faces and extra large ears). He was three months old when we got him, and he has already grown a ton. He is now a healthy 6 pound little dude and he will probably end up being pretty large once he grows up :)

So (since I am now obviously a proud mother) I will be keeping you guys posted with fun pictures and stories of the little guy.
