Happy Halloween!!!

My sister broke my camera so I haven't been able to take updated pictures of the house so I have nothing new to show you guys. We got a new area rug (not quite sure I like it), it's not the one I wanted so I am getting used to it. We still need to paint but the floors look amazing.

My sister got married last weekend

but I didn't take any pictures for myself so I don't have anything to show. This picture is from Rachel's camera. We had such a good time and everything turned out beautiful!!! I can't wait to share the photographers photos.

It's Halloween tonight but we didn't do anything festive :(. We went to dinner at our friend Jacy's house and had a nice dinner with good conversation and handed out candy but nothing to exciting. Maybe next year we will have a little less going on and quite possibly a little one to dress up :):):).

I'm alive, and WELL

Busy with life and work and the house right now (oh and running out of gas for like the 1000th time this afternoon so now I am an hour behind in my day) but I heard this song on the radio today and fell in love with the message and sound.

Just had to share it with you...

I'm Alive lyrics
Kenny Chesney Feat - Dave Matthews

So damn easy to say that life's so hard
Everybody's got their share of battle scars
As for me I'd like to thank my lucky stars that
I'm alive and well

It'd be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you've sat and watch go up in flames
Dwell on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me... I'm alive

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
And I'm alive and well
I'm alive and well

Stars are dancin' on the water here tonight
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight
This motor's caught its wind and brought me back to life
Now I'm alive and well

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life
Now I'm alive and well
Yeah I'm alive and well

Exquisite Blooms has "PRESS"...kinda

I did a wedding in September that I featured on my "work" blog entitled "Small Beach Wedding", and it was featured in Pacific San Diego Magazine this month!!! While the article is not about the flowers or anything of that nature, they still have pics of the beautiful bride and her bouquet I MADE! It was made from gladiola blooms then wrapped in raffia and accented with tiny starfish to match the centerpieces. Check it out below...

Just wanted to share that with everyone because this is the 1st time my work has been printed in any publications!!! I am just a little excited :).

P.S. this is a really cool local magazine that I have been picking up lately and I think you all should too!

That is exactly what we did on September 18th at Disneyland. Sister and I celebrated our 28th birthday in Disneyland style!!!

Just the 2 of us drove up to Anaheim to the "Happiest Place on Earth" to enjoy a free day at Disneyland. We wore matching outfits (my idea), got matching birthday pins (courtesy of Disneyland) and rode our favorite rides. I have to admit that my initial (secret) feeling was that of reluctance when we stepped out of the car and we were in twin outfits, down to the shoes and all. I kept the feeling to myself, unlike my very anti-matching sister who complained that people were looking. Eventually we realized that people were staring because they thought it was cute, we heard people saying "oh look, Twins!". Then when we got in and saw the number of September 18th B-Dayers, it was fun to be matching. Sister even told me at the end of the day, "I am glad you made us wearing matching clothes and wear out Birthday pins, it was fun!"

This was the "Celebrate" Parade...very "entertaining"!

We didn't stay long, we were back in SD by 6:30, but we had a really good time.
