I want to go to there....

Not to sound all Liz Lemon... but, I DO want to go to there... yum.
Check out these blueberry basil cheesecake cupcakes that I stumbled upon on Bakerella.
I would never think to be blueberry and basil together, but I want to try it! They look so delish... me and Maycie are going to have to try and create these beauties, ohh yeah!

Click here for the recipe.

Oh, Harry!

I'm not going to lie... every time I see a preview for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I get goosebumps. Seriously, my heart beats fast and I become giddy.

I adore the books, but I also really love the films... they are done so well. So whimsical, it feels like watching my imagination come to life. Poke fun all you want, but it's the truth. Come July 17th and I will be one happy girl.

How gorgeous is Freida Pinto?

I was so blown away with her beauty in Slumdog Millionaire... and here she is gracing the cover of Vogue, so stunning!

p.s. -- according to E! News, Michael Cera (mmm cutie) is finally on board for the Arrested Development film... production is rumored to begin as early as the end of this year. YAY!

Funny faces galore!

I love silly pictures. A lot.

You must admit, we make some pretty fierce pig-people.
Enjoy. :)

Took a little road trip with Brandon, Travis and Bri to Abilene, TX yesterday (Brandon's hometown). Three hours there and three hours back in one day... not to bad. I met Brandon's parents, dog and cat... all of them incredibly sweet. Plus, we got some great thrift-shopping done. Good day.

I put together an "ultimate road trip" playlist for our ride:
  • Ramblin’ Man – The Allman Brothers Band
  • Take It Easy – The Eagles
  • Ain’t Too Proud to Beg – The Temptations
  • Free Fallin’ – Tom Petty
  • Looking Out My Back Door – Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • ABC – Jackson 5
  • Like a Rolling Stone – Bob Dylan
  • Twist and Shout – The Beatles
  • My Girl – The Temptations
  • Carry on My Wayward Son – Kansas
  • I Get Around – The Beach Boys
  • Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic – The Police
  • Stand By Me – Ben E. King
  • Don’t Stop Believin’ – Journey
  • Signed, Sealed, Delivered – Stevie Wonder
  • Hello, Goodbye – The Beatles
  • Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Marvin Gaye
  • Landslide – Fleetwood Mac
  • Bennie and the Jets – Elton John
  • Johhny B Goode – Chuck Berry
  • Paper Planes – MIA
What do you think? Any favorites on there? Any suggestions for next time? :)

p.s. -- I realize that Paper Planes is completely out of place on that playlist... but I just couldn't help myself!

Less than a month away...

In less than a month it will be spring break... and that means our college group's mission trip to NYC! I am so excited to go back (this will be my second mission trip in NYC) and experience the beauty of serving others.

Not to mention my dear friend Maycie will be coming! :D This makes me giddy! We are going to have so much fun. Maycie has been such a breath of fresh air to me this year. I know she was put in my life for a reason... I just adore her and all my time spent with her. We've only just known each other for about six months, but I just don't know how I ever survived without her!

I believe we will be working with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church, and let me just say, I adore Brooklyn. The people, the atmosphere, the STOOPS! Ha!

I can't wait...

Me and Maycie!

New York -- March 2008

p.s. my good friend Hollye is going to! I can't wait for her to experience the city and I can't wait to spend quality time with her. There is nothing like the bonding that goes on during a mission trip -- romancing with my Jesus and experiencing the joy of serving with good friends ... how beautiful!

TOMS Shoes

I finally got my second pair of TOMS shoes yesterday. They are corduroy and so very comfy!

If you've never heard of TOMS shoes before, it's a wonderful company. For every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need. Check it out at


An absolute must!

If you haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire yet... please do. As soon as possible. Really. Go. You'll thank me later.

Valentine's Schmalentines!

I was sicky on Valentine's day... yikes. Needless to say I still had a good time with my beautiful friends... and cupcakes.. oh the cupcakes!

By far the cutest batch of cupcakes I've made thus far:

We enjoyed a breakfast for dinner -- dinner party, and then half-heartedly attempted to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's. All in all... it was a good day. I hope your love day was wonderful.
