Giggly Delirium

This weekend has been full of wedding planning adventures, food, beer, wine and of course, good friends. I am super tired and am planning to camp out in this Irvine Coffee Bean until 5:30pm this evening until I meet up with my coworker to see 311 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater at 7pm. That was a long sentence. That’s what happens when I’m exhausted. It’s ok though. It was worth it.

Friday night our friend (and fellow bridesmaid) flew down from San Francisco and landed 40 minutes early! This never happens! Anyway, we picked her up and headed to the Yardhouse in Long Beach where we drank beers and caught up (even though I had seen SF friend two weeks ago). We had a great time, even though our waitress forgot about us for about half an hour (or longer). I was too delirious at that point to tell time. Everything was funny. Pretty much all weekend I could not stop laughing.

Saturday we headed over to the Bride World Expo at the LA Convention Center. Word on the street was that it is the “largest bridal expo in California.” We were not that impressed. We all agreed that it didn’t feel like 200 vendors were in attendance. We did get some free cake samples though. I like anything that’s free. The best cake sample was a yummy taro cake.

The rest of the weekend flew by crazy fast. Onto the new week!

As you are aware, I’m not at home today, so I don’t have my sewing machine handy, BUT I will be posting a super super quick project tomorrow inspired by this photo from The Sartorialist:

Perhaps you can guess what the project will be? Eh? Eh? That will be coming at ya tomorrow evening. So get ready for it!

In other news, I have been dedicating a lot of time lately to modifying, building, and writing for TV Rots Your Mind Grapes.

HIMYM

It’s our new baby. Marissa is the co-creator of this super fun project, and an excellent writer. We love TV, particularly good TV and like to write about it. You should check it out! We just started it this week; the blog will get juicier as it ripens. (Ha!) I crack myself up.

From Chaos Comes Clarity

So, after seeing 311 this past Saturday night, I can pretty much die a very very happy lady. I rocked out to the songs that got me through high school, and totally remembered why I loved them so much. I, sadly, had slightly forgotten. In anticipation of the sounds of 311 taking me back to my high school state of mind, I wore my bright red Converse sneakers just as an inside joke to myself.

In other news, my roommate and I went to the Long Beach Antique Market on Sunday and boy oh boy was it hot!
Fra-gee-lee… that must be Italian
I don’t know why… but I assumed it would be indoors so I didn’t wear any sunblock. Needless to say my skin is pretty mad at me today. BUT I found a lot of great deals. I was surprised by the wide variety of goodies the Antique Market vendors had to offer. From vintage clothing to old comic books and action figures. There was something for everyone. My favorite find of the day was a Paul de Longpre framed print for only $5. Yeow Yeow. All in all good times were had.

Anyhoo, it’s been a while since I’ve last updated, so here’s a little visual update:
