Anniversary weekend

So this weekend was our 1 year wedding anniversary. It seems strange that we've been married for a year already as time has passed by so quickly.

We were driving in the car the other day and I was talking about work with Tim and how this week is going to be rough because I am running the practice for 4 days. Tim then paused and said can I believe where I am right now? It seems like such a long time ago that I was so depressed about my life and crying everyday not knowing what was going to happen to me. Now, I have an awesome stable job and couldn't be happier. Interesting how life changes so quickly.

Anyway, Tim and I stayed at Santana Row at Hotel Valencia last night. We checked in to a gorgeous room and then proceeded to watch the free HBO like the dorks that we are. After that, we went to the Vintage Wine Bar and sat outside and had some wine and a meat and cheese platter. I would have never thought that Tim would have ever been happy to sit out at Santana Row with all the other posers and ponces and metrosexuals, but he was kind enough to partake last night. We then decided to go see Clerks II at CineArts. Now I enjoy the Kevin Smith very muchly, however, there were some moments in this film (discussions of "ass to mouth" sexuality and a scene with "inter-species erotica") that I could have done without. However, it was mostly just good fun and fitting as Tim and I love Jay and Silent Bob.

After the movie, we went to the Left Bank for dinner. It was very nice although we ate way too much food and had a ton of drinks. It was fun though and I kept on reminding myself that it was money well spent due to the significance of the event. Also, the gift for the first anniversary is paper, which money is made out, of so i think that that somehow works out ok.

In the end we had a wonderful anniversary. Tim got me a totally rockin stereo for my car that runs my iPod from the glove compartment. I got Tim and new Sharks jersey that he's been wanting. Overall, I think that it was a great weekend. Today after checkout we came home and watched Red Eye and now we're going to watch the Island.

Oh yeah, I also booked us a trip to Vegas with my parents in October to go see Elton John at Caesar's. We've been trying to do this for over a year so i finally just said I'm doing it, we'ere going. Anyway, I got a super sweet deal on Expedia for two nights at Paris and flight for 411 per person. Expedia is my friend. We are flying to Canada for Kelley's wedding with Expedia. I rented a car with them as well. Love the discount travel.

As a side note, my last post was about how we were going to watch Lost. Unfortunately, ABC has decided to put on some singing, American idol wannabe show and not show Lost re-runs anymore. I thought Tim was going to break the TV he had such a fit. He has turned into one of you know who you are =)

Anyway, that's all for now. I must try to convince Tim to stop killing the Nazi's that he's been working on all day (XBOX 360). Wish me luck!

America's got talent

Wednesday night has fast become talent competition night on television. Every station has some kind of talent show...dancing, rockstaring, talenting etc. Of course Tim and I just watch all this stuff to waste time until Lost starts (since Tim has become a convert). Once cannot miss the high def broadcast of Lost. (Insert sarcasm here).

Incidentally, we watched Closer the other night. Talk about an f-ed up movie. Holy crap. How that film was every a play...I don't know. Anyway, I love Clive Owen so I could enjoy his performance, but I wouldn't recommend the movie if you are looking for a light evening of entertainment.

Tim and I just finished dinner and I think I will make some cookies tonight. I feel like baking a bit..=)

movie night

Tim and I just watched the Transporter 2. It's a pretty good action adventure movie and not really that violent. Plus, Jason Statham is pretty cute, I must say. Now we are moving on to Closer. It is rated R for graphic sexuality and such. Hmm...better than graphic violence, I say.

We had dinner with my parents at the Macaroni Grill tonight. They have some good grub there. I highly recommend it. =)

I had to go to work today for about 5 hours. It was totally worth it though as we got a lot of work done. I have several insurance/billing projects to do this week, but I think it will make this week go by quickly. Nothing better than a quickly passing week.

In addition, I have to give a birthday shout out to Sarah. Happy Birthday, and many more...on channel 4...and scooby doo....on channel 2 and so on and so forth.

Wedding etc.

So here are the new pictures from Cheri's wedding.
I apologize for my laxity with posting, but I vow to be better in the future. =)

Chris and Eric looking fab as always!

This is a dangerous foursome....=)

Anyway, the wedding was really beautiful and we had a super time. The hotel we stayed at was really nice and I especially enjoyed it as the chair in our room was Burberry. I tried to steal it but I think they would have noticed and I can't really afford a 3,000 dollar chair right best that Tim stopped me from hauling it down to my car.

Yesterday I went to see The Devil Wears Prada with my girls (Sar and B). It was cute but very different from the book. That is always to be expected though, as books are ALWAYS better than the movies. After the film, we took a stroll around the Great Mall. We all wound up purchasing some good stuff. I'm especially happy as I got two new pairs of jeans. Let me just say that shopping for pants is pretty much torture for me. If I wind up going to hell, my punishment will be shopping for pants. In this day and age, everything is low rise. However, they don't take into account that sometimes, those of us with a short torso need a higher rise. My waist is techinically almost up by my boobs. =) Ha Ha. Anyway, I got two new pairs of Calvin Klein jeans that are very comfy and fit well. I will have to stretch them out a bit though, as one always does when one buys new pants. Last night I put them on and did the usual squat to the floor, leg stretches and rolling around on the bed that I'm sure most of you girls out there can relate to. However, I think that the more I wear them, the looser they will be. Did you know that you are not supossed to wash denim unless there is an actual spill on them? It keeps them comfy for much longer. Of course you must wash them if you are stinky, but girls usually are not.

The world cup final is almost over. It's in the 68th minute. I'm not really rooting for either side as England was sent home by Portugal (Grr...Chris). We have to hate the frogs as that is what the English do, however, so many of them play for clubs in England and Zidane is so old that I wish he could retire with a championship. On the other hand, Italy is a good club and I'm sure Kelley and Alex are rooting for them with all their heart =)

So, I'm going to finish my giant coffee I got from Krispy Kreme this morning. Their coffee is not that bad and is about 3 times as big as Starbucks. It's a vat really...but what the hell, it's Sunday. Plus, I'm wearing my exercise clothes that I don't exercise I may as well take it to the max and drink coffee and doughnuts to top off the day of non-excercise. So, if any of you are out there wearing your exercise clothes that you don't exercise in, go get yourself a vat of coffee, a doughnut and sit on the couch. Believe me, you'll love it. =)
