Late last Wednesday, [ profile] normal and I drove down to Amelia Island to play at the beach, with [ profile] ninsun, [ profile] ozgolith, Michelle, and later joined by [ profile] scottopic and [ profile] skiadaimonos~ We had a great time, and pretty much ate at the same place the whole time, a shack-built-off-a-bar bar-b-que place down the road, where I consumed far too many 'corn nuggets'.... Now that I'm thinking about it I should look up a recipe XD
We did a lot of playing at the beach but there is never nearly enough of that! I can't wait to go again~ The place we stayed at was a tiny bit weird, but cheap and just a block away from the beach- a locals only beach, hurrah! On Saturday we could look down towards to public beach, and just see the huge crowd of people there, scary~~ I forget how tiring the beach is, but it was really a lot of fun.

Glad to be home now, but still missing the beach ;) Hopefully we can go again~

Today hasn't been too exciting, laundry, baking, X-Files... Saturday we'll be going to my parent's house in Lawrenceville to help them with a yard sale, woooooo ~__~

Everyone on Facebook for the past week weeks has been going on and on about... Dragon*Con! We did buy tickets, so I should start thinking of what to do and wear. I will very likely be toting my Pint Size Slasher mask around again, but otherwise I don't really have any ideas ^^; I may dig through my costume ideas folder for a quick (and cheap) costume inspiration. Maybe I'll make a creepy-cute bunny mask~

Ahhh, had a great weekend away from the city~ I was sick Friday night, so that was no fun, but the rest of the time spent was wonderful! Nearby the cabin we stayed at, was a lake and a field and some very picturesque scenery, so I come bearing pictures!

Read more... )

Good times spent with great people <3 I can't wait for the next cabin trip~ I feel, oddly enough, recharged from this weekend of over-indulgence and sin. I am in a much better mind-set now then I have been the last few weeks, I feel more motivated to do and create things.

Hmmmm. What else. It is June! That means, this month Josh will go to the bank and see how much of a loan he can get, to buy a house! o____o Hooray!!! I am *so* looking forward to this~ God, just thinking of the idea that we could have a house with enough room makes me giddy. A ROOM FOR CRAFTING AND KITCHEN LARGE ENOUGH FOR TWO PEOPLE TO WORK IN AND A BACKYARD FOR A PUPPY (and a garden!) AND A BASEMENT FOR 'THINGS' AND AND AND, AHHHHHHHHH~~~~ I feel like I will get a nosebleed if I think about it too much.

Ran out of steam for this post. Later~

Finally updating about the weekend XD Friday was Phobia, we took [ profile] bejipan with us, and I brought cupcakes!

I made Chocolate with Strawberry Frosting, and White Russian cupcakes. It may not look pretty but people seemed to enjoy them ^__^ I had a fun time, didn't take many pics though :/

Saturday we slept late then went out to L5P and met up with Chris, Torch, and Dave at the Vortex <3 I love the Yokohama Momma burger they have *___* Drank more, ended back at home with the Charlotte boys... Decided that sleeping was a much better option while Josh and Torch went out to Crimson Web...

Sunday, woke up, did some dishes, went shopping for some cake things, then off to the Highlander to properly celebrate [ profile] orwellsanimal's birthday! With more drinking!

And Photos! )

Good times XD I had a lot of fun, well, up until the ride home ^^;; I'll spare everyone the details, but damn, I'm glad my Josh loves me ^^;;; A lot.

Yesterday we got a new dishwasher, hooray! Today I am venturing into gluten-&-wheat-free baking, let's hope it goes well!

[ profile] stupid_drawings's had a pretty awesome Heroes and Villains party last night for her birthday! You know it's a party when the cops show up ^___^ We went with [ profile] mastergode, [ profile] bejipan, [ profile] deapheuphoria, and [ profile] scary_mary... No pics though, boo =(

I made cupcakes in theme, too!

Heroes vs Villains Cupcakes

I thought it was clever 8) I spent far too long on Thursday trying to decide what would be an opposite flavor to the absinthe, 'till I stumbled upon a honey frosting by accident. Which was, let me say, a pain in the ass to make~ I totally fucked up the first batch and had to re-make it a second time, which I thought was going to fail as well but in the end came through for me <3 OMG, it is soooooo tasty, definitely worth the work and I'll make it again in the future~ I really just wanted to eat it out of the bowl... The Absinthe frosting was interesting, I used a pretty straight-forward dark chocolate frosting and mixed in "about" (measuring? what? I just threw some in) a half-ounce of [ profile] normal's homemade 'rock-gut' absinthe. You can definitely taste the anise, and mixed with the dark chocolate, has a very... unique taste about it. I thought it was pretty good.

Anyway, I'll shut up about my cupcakes now~ Today we're going to go look for a sewing machine to buy, hooray! Then to the fair with Chris, Marisa, Adam and Kristy... Unfortunately we'll be missing out on the Furries VS Klingons Bowling Re-Match!!! We had a lot of fun at that last year, but I am sure we'll have more fun at the fair =) I have been thinking of eating cotton candy ALL WEEK.

it never ends

Ahhhhhhhhhhhahahahahaha, I can only laugh right now, otherwise I'll cry.

I was going to go out to do some last-minute x-mas shopping here and there, and stop by Hobby Lobby to pick some fabric and whatnot.

But my car is dead. I can only assume it's the battery since nothing in there will turn on.

Weep, moan, whine, etc )

Last night was fun though~ [ profile] missmeganmaude came over to learn some silk-screening and to hang out a bit, so I was able to give her her birthday present (I forgot to take a picture though)~ [ profile] cocinecro came over too to play Rock Band, and [ profile] gizmomage popped by and I sewed up his hoodie. [ profile] normal bought some more barbeque from the place down the street, and oooohhhh, it was so good ^___^ We have some leftovers so I'm going to go fix some for lunch. It was nice having a lot of people over.

Wednesday we saw Sweeny Todd, and it was great! I enjoyed it, though I know Josh was waaaay more excited about it then me XD Can you guess what our costumes for next Dragon*Con might be? Hehe. Anyway, I got early x-mas presents from [ profile] ninsun and [ profile] ozgolith~ Lots of Hello Kitty and a pair of goggles (I'm sure you can figure out who gave what, lol)! Now I have a giant HK stocking and new HK Christmas ornaments! YAY! XD I had complained about not being able to find any cute ones this year, since all the HK ornaments at Target are pretty much the same as last year, which are rather similar to the ones from the year before, which of course I already have. Maybe one year I'll be able to have a whole Hello Kitty Christmas tree like Megan suggested, hehe.

I feel better now then when I started this post (almost an hour ago), so yay~ I hope you didn't suffer too much from reading this. Since I can't go out I'm going to work on cleaning up the massive pile of clothes that has taken over, and bake some cookies or something~

Oh, and my Christmas Wish List!

-My car to be fixed
-A Paid LJ Account Thank you [ profile] feachador!!! I love youuuuuuuu <3

/long post, finally!
