Wedding Blogs

I love my photographer. She was seriously AMAZING to say the least. Every now and then I'll get on FB and she will have me tagged in a post. When I go to the post it's always something about how my wedding made some wedding blog. I thought I'd share this one. Thank you Jennifer for submitting it!!

I've had every intention of updating our blog lately. We have been really busy... Ok that's a pathetic excuses, but I'm going to stick with it. A few weeks ago we took a weekend trip to Disneyland with our cute friends Cj and Savanna, and Booke and Kyle. It. Was. Magical!! (here comes the explanation as to why I REALLY haven't updated our blog) We don't really have any good pictures of our trip! It was humid and my hair product doesn't go nicely with the humidity and I don't know why! So I would wake up and do my hair and look just fine, after about 30 minutes I looked like I had just gotten out of the shower!! Awful... Anyway.

Friday we had all day to kill while we waited for Brooke and Kyle to get to California so we headed up to Hollywood! We were those annoying tourists that everyone hates, and it couldn't have been more fun! We had a little bite to eat before taking a Hollywood tour.

After eating the most terrible, over priced pizza, EVER!
This tastes a lot worse then it looks, and it doesn't even look good.

This was our little tour bus. Obnoxious tourists? I all ready told you we enjoyed it. Judge if you wish..
This is about how excited they were for the full 2 hour tour.

Awkward picture? Yes. It was cold, and a tight fit.
(This is where my hair took a turn for the worse )
We went for our little tour, and the first stop was an over look to the Hollywood sign. Seeing as the van had no roof, the pictures are horrible, and the only time it was sunny was during the picture, so we look like a bunch of idiot tourists taking horrible pictures that you look back on and say "I have no idea what this is". This Tourists instinct took over in me the remainder of the tour. I have about 12 pictures of gates to celebrity houses and I have no idea who belongs to who. I'll spare both you and I the pain and just skip it.

We then headed down the Santa Monica Pier. I'd never been before and all I wanted was to eat a funnel cake. (Please disregard the low quality of the photos below. After a short argument of who was carrying the camera Jim won and neither of us did. He insisted that iPhone4 would have superb quality in the photo's but guess what? It didn't. Most of the remainder of the trip we used his phone, and I like to blame the awful pictures on that.)

Oh yes. I enjoyed this.

By this time Kyle and Booke had made it and were waiting for us at our hotel. So we headed back and went to dinner with them! It was fun and we were exhausted and ready for bed. We hung out the rest of the night and the boys went to the store. It was so fun to just sit and relax and talk girl talk! I seriously love these girls! I struck gold with married friends!

Bright and early Saturday we woke up and headed for DISNEYLAND!!! It really IS the happiest place on earth!
This is not irregular in our lives. Blah.

You can see my hair starting to have issues. But Savanna looks flawless as usual!

There was absolutely no line for splash mountain! We waited, I don't know, 30 seconds? It was overcast/misty the whole trip.

Look Familiar?

Jim and CJ decided that it would be a good idea to get a Turkey Leg while we waited in line for the Toy Story ride

CJ did finish his, Jim on the other hand... Well he felt terrible the rest of the day.

This is, sadly, the ONLY picture I have of Kyle and Brooke from the WHOLE trip! I hope Savanna got more!
This is Jim and I, don't get us confused with the other picture. It get's really hard when everyone wears the same hoodie!

The rest of the trip was so fun! I mean it was Disneyland for crying out loud! If anyone is still reading by the point, (I really had no intention of writing a post about this, I was going to write about how we went to the fair last week) we are almost done! This was when I finally called it quits with trying to get a good picture and pulled my hair up.

By the very end of the night my feet were done for and luckily CJ had bought Kitten some mole skin the night before for her aching feet.

The next day was Sunday, and it was long, but fun. Brooke and Kyle woke up and took off back to Phoenix, and I don't blame them! We didn't leave the hotel until like 11:30, got some lunch and were off to spend the rest of the day in Cali. We went to Venice beach (the opposite direction of Phoenix) and then to San Clemente. Venice beach is dirty, and cold, but it was great people watching and the perfect place for one last churro and one last funnel cake (oh how I love that you can justify anything terrible you eat on vacation). We went to San Clemente for the one and only Rainbow store! CJ and Savanna were RAVING about these AMAZING deals on Rainbow flip flops. They are like $55.00 at Nordy's and like $10.00 at the Rainbow store. Of course I was down to drive a little out of the way to get this amazing deal! When we pulled up to the shop the hours on the sign read "Sun: Go to Beach". Ok thanks. They were closed. We did what they said and went to the beach. I wish I got some cheap flip flops, but it was still fun. I love our married friends and that we could ALL go the same weekend! It was so much fun, let's do it again! Maybe next time it will be a cruise, Kyle. I'd love that too!

I had every intention on skipping this post entirely and posting about how much fun we had at the fair last weekend! Oh well... to another quiet night at home.
