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~

Thanks to [ profile] scary_mary, Josh and I are hooked on

Everyone should join! Tell me your username and I'll add you ^^
Had a fun day out with [ profile] ninsun and [ profile] scottopic~ We went and had Indian food for lunch, very yummy! I want to go back~ Then popped over to L5P to poke around some... M had found the Hello Kitty hat-costume thing that you could put on your cat, at Junkman's, but sadly they didn't have it anymore :( I know Skatha is so upset XD I did find some awesome boots though at Rag-o-Rama:

Very cool for $15! Though I noticed the other day that the boots I've been lusting over are in stock again, hopefully they will stay that way until I can afford them *__*;

Today was a Picnic Day- beautiful weather and all, so [ profile] normal and I went out to Kennesaw Mountain for a picnic ^__^ We had a lot of fun~ Stopped at Whole Foods for, ah, foods, picnicked, and went to Joann's afterwards~ Came home and clean up, had dinner, and here we are!

I'm following my New Year's resolution to take more pics, so here are some from today~

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!

I had a lovely birthday! It kind of started Thursday~ We went to dinner with Josh's dad to South City Kitchen <3 We love that place, everything is so tasty! Friday I spent time with Chris, we went to a great place called P'cheen for dinner- mmmm, smoked mozzarella raviolis! Stopped by Ryan's birthday-shindig at Thinking Man (and also said hi to miss [ profile] halcionclouds - Happy Birthday ma!), then had a good rest of the night. Saturday was a bit lazy, did some shopping during the day, then went to the Frosted Fetish Ball later and had a great time there, saw lots of friends, drank profusely. Sunday, woke up far too early to go to 25 cent brunch, followed by the Highlander, followed by dinner with my parents. Monday- my actual birthday! Hung out with Megan, we went to Dr. Bombay's and had the $12 high tea. Josh arrived at their house after work, and we continued the tradition of subjecting friends to bad, bad, bad porn (goldfish, and eels, and frogs, oh my!). Afterwards, we went to the restaurant Spence works at, Two Urban Licks. ZOMG FANTASTIC!!! We ate a ton of food and I got lots of cupcakes.

Today I did some random things around the house, watched the inauguration, started working on a pair of bloomers. I'm ready for sleep, though I know that's not gonna happen for a while.

Tomorrow... we're gonna go to see Kooza (the Cirque du Soleil show thats in town) *___* Josh got us tickets as a bonus birthday gift- Hooray!!!

Woooo Halloween is over! *is dead* I was up far too late this morning and awake too early ^^ Oh well. Maybe I'll take a nap later before Weasel's party!

Our Costumes... )

Oh, and b/c so many people asked, "What does a giraffe sound like?"

Go to 1:50 and watch~

This weekend felt like it lasted fooorreeeevveeerrrr. Friday we went out to Psytrance at the roller skating rink <3 My that was fun! I do hope a goth skate night gets put together now!

We were out until early morning, came home, slept, then had to get ready for dunner and Whirlyball... It was all great fun again, but Sunday I felt like maybe someone had stuffed me into a dryer and turned it on~ I have bruises all over and am just so sore ;___; But instead of being slug-like and staying at home to play Fable, we went out to do some halloween costume hunting, then to my parent's house for dinner.

Today I am still sore and full of bruises, and tired, and hungry, but I'm ready to work on my costume! I had my original plan when I first thought of this idea but then the weather turned very cold much quicker, so I had to think of a re-design... But now I've got all that worked out, so now it's time to make some room for the sewing machine and get to work :D

[ 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.

Another one down... This time I'll just link it from my DeviantART account~

Had a good weekend! Saturday we went to JoAnn's and bought a ton of clearance fabric and patterns to work on~ Looking at them is a little scary, hopefully I'll be able to make some sense out of it all soon. Later we went to the event at La Bam~ I thought there would be more people out! But it was fun seeing everyone that was there =) The space is, of course, amazing, it'd be wonderful to have a tea party there ^^

Right now I've got some cookie dough in the fridge waiting to be baked! Dun dun dunnnn~~~

Phew, exciting New Years! Here're some pictures from our trip )

So yes, I had a great new year's! Since we've gotten back things have been great actually, except that I've been sicky-sick off and on the past few days since we got back... Anyway, Josh's stepmom got a bonus from work, and gave Josh money to help pay off his debt *____* Holy wow, ok so I mean to say she is paying the rest off! How awesome is that??? We went to dinner with them Friday night and that was discussed, and we told them out engagement was back on... Of course she is excited and her and Josh pretty much decided how the wedding will go right there (at their house, outside, oh, maybe in the back and you guys can stand in the gazebo and there can be candles and flowers in the pool and you can have so-and-so sing and...) ^^ Hehe, it was cute. Also they said they'd help Josh with putting a down-payment on... a house! OOOOOOOOMFG~!!! The idea that by this time next year we could be living in our own house is really exciting to us :DDD

This weekend has been pretty low-key. Ran around doing some things yesterday, we got a new comforter set, I actually bought some more xmas stuff at Target (90% off!), and took down the tree, then today it was return of the sicky-sick a bit... I'm pretty tired of this sick crap! I did manage to get some work in though, but I've been totally slack-ass about cleaning up the house. Tomorrow though I will get the dining room cleaned so I can sew again, and I'll clean up the bedroom closet at least ^^;

This week I have to go get my car inspected and do my registration... I have to actually go over to Lawrenceville to do that since the address on my license is a PO Box and you just cant do it via mail like that :/ Boo. Ah well.... Then Saturday there is an event at Spring4th that you all should keep an eye out for and attend ;)

Hmmm soooo tired now Z___Z Time for some DS and bed~
