Happy Monday readers!
I'm feeling so incredibly blessed for the progress my grandma has made in the hospital and I know it is the blessings and kind thoughts that were sent her way. So in honor of feeling thankful, I wanted to start a new series based on things I love. Hopefully you'll find something you love too!
Being part of my family is such a large part of who I am and it was even more strengthened by the recent events with my grandma. Knowing there is family to rush to the hospital when times get tough really makes my heart swell with pride. I'm so thankful for all the family that came to visit her, I know it made all the difference.
2. E! Network's Mrs. Eastwood and Company
As if I needed another show to watch, I could not stop laughing when Dina Eastwood took her housekeeper Lisa to a tattoo shop to get her nose pierced. Lisa is one of those motherly characters you can't help but love with her strong Korean accent and fierce honesty. While I wouldn't endorse resorting to such lengths to prove a point, it made for a good laugh. And nothing can beat the teenagers' reactions to seeing their piercings, it was sheer horror.
3. Color blocking

I've always had a soft spot for bright pops of color contrasted with neutrals or darks but Jordin Sparks' dress at the Billboard Music Awards sent me over the edge into LOVE. She looks fabulous and I love the sharp line between the blue and the black. Plus, she rocked that song!
4. Old friends
Because I've been burned by friends before, I deeply treasure the friends who have stuck it out for the long haul. Last Saturday, we spent the night celebrating one of my best friend Vicky's birthday at R15. Vicky, Gabe and Rob have known each other since elementary school and I've know them for almost 9 years! Old friends are the best.
Sorry for the poor picture quality, I guess a bar w/ flash at night isn't the best setup. Lol
P.S. Ladies in the Sacramento area, Gabe is single 🙂 (but that handsome man in back, he's taken!)
5. Glee's Whitney episode
I feel a comeback of the huge hair bow comin' on... Future DIY?
I know I'm like a few weeks late but for my fellow Gleeks out there, how AMAZING was the Whitney episode? They did every Whitney song I adored growing up and I think it was one of their best episodes in a long time. Performing How Will I Know as an acapella was remake GENIUS.
Are you lovin any of those things? I hope you all had a good weekend!
On a side note, I feel like an IDIOT because Disneyland raised prices for their annual Passport on Sunday and Rob and I were planning on a trip this Saturday to buy them! Of course I knew they were increasing but when I checked online Saturday, they were still showing up as $500 (which I thought was the increased price) so I wasn't sweating it. Come Monday, they're $649. FML. If we had bought them 2 days ago, we would have saved $300. There goes my dreams of owning an annual passport. :SIGH:
