Life Lately, According to my iphone

As Pink Floyd asks, "Hello?, Is there anybody out there?" I mean, it has been nearly 3 months since I last posted, I probably wouldn't still be out there, but the thing is... the thing is, I like blogging, believe it or not. I've been struggling for a while now, about whether to continue this blog, to start a new one, to walk away period. You see, I started this mostly as a cooking blog, and I just don't know if that is what I always want it to be (hence wanting to start something new), but you know what, I've spent a lot of time on this and this is what I have. This is what I've started, so I'm going to continue.

No matter the title of the blog (perhaps a bad decision long ago), this space is mine to do with what I please, and what I please, right now, is to do a little round up of what's been going on in the past few months (according to my iphone, i.e. minus the totally boring wedding planning details). I hope, if you're there, you'll join me...

In February, we went to Vegas for my cousin's 40th birthday! What a wonderfully magical, and yet oddly fake and disturbing place. I find I have to force myself to just see the magic to enjoy Vegas. This is opposed to realizing everything is completely fake, from the cocktail waitresses "parts" to the "Eiffel Tower" at the Paris, but once you just accept it, you find there are some really cool things there: look at those balls of flowers in the Wynn... how lovely are they? I was obsessed with figuring out if they were live flowers, fake flowers, freeze-dried real flowers, or something else all together.
In March, I completely lost control of my wedding "diet" (OK, let me not kid you, I'm not on a diet in anyway, nor have I started some wedding boot camp work out plan, but you know, it would be nice to try and eat healthier and get outside/ exercise a little more). However, I lost control of this plan, in the best ways possible: enjoying some West Coast original fast food and THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES, ever. These guys have been talked about, blogged, written about ad nauseam, so I won't bore you here, but yes, they are my favorite chocolate chip cookies, and I really don't see a reason to bake any others. Also, Kevin and I got working on our wedding invitations... DIY style. I'm super pumped about them. They're so personal, and I love them. I also love crafting, so the added time doesn't bother me in the least (plus I saved some money!)
Also, at the very end of March, Kevin and I took a romantic little one night stay in the Russian River Valley. I guess I liked my outfit for our wine tasting excursion, so I snapped a photo. Please ignore the weird eyes and claw-like hand... holding an iphone to take your own picture sure is awkward. Oh yeah, and if you happen to be looking for some hot pink lipstick (I'm sure you all are), Tom Ford's Pure Pink is killer, and my go to. Applied lightly, it isn't quite so dramatic. Also I won an Oscar...
 
... Right. That is an Oscar won for The Godfather, but I'd never seen one before, so I thought I'd snap a photo. Also on this adventure in northern Sonoma, we saw some actual magical sites: California just takes my breath away sometimes. It's a cool place to live; it really is.
Well that's all folks. Hopefully, it won't be so long next time. I'd like to share a little more about those invitations once they're all done and out the door (in a little over a month)!
