Road Trip!

Ah, yes! Finally it is that time of year again for me! Time to go to Wisconsin. I have gone there every single summer since I was an infant. It will be more sad this year with the loss of my grandma. The house will seem empty. But thus is life.

It will be myself, my mom and my younger sister. We are taking a road trip this year instead of flying. It's 2045.84 miles! We have taken this sort of drive many many a times. I love driving thru Vegas and Green River, Utah. Actually, all of Utah is absolutely beautiful. I really enjoy the scenery there. Always changing. Nebraska and Iowa are super boring but luckily we are stopping in Omaha, my old stomping grounds and picking up my older sister and her and I will drive together to Wisconsin. So that will be nice. I only get to see her twice a year.

I am pretty sad that Dave can't go. I know he really wanted to and I really wanted him to, but he has his job and needs to hold down the homefront as well. So it will be just the girls! And my grandpa. I can't wait to see what this trip reveals to me. Quality time with people can be such an adventure.

"Remember guys, violence is not the answer, but if all else fails, whip out your knuckle busters!" ~kodashii88

kodashii's Etsy shop has got to be one of the all togther coolest shops I've seen! I am obsessed with the items, they are so beautiful and edgy. If you have never seen his shop here are some of his amazing works...

This is absolutely stunning!

My husband would absolutely love this cuff!

Look at this bracelet! For one I am obsessed with clocks and time and this just happens to be a bracelet featuring 4 working watch faces! Unbelievable.

He has a line of these called SickSadKids, this one is my favorite!

kodashii88 says "Not only is he a goofball, he has also spent time in JUVIE! and he wears his prison i.d. number proudly around his waist like a badge of honor. Naughty naughty" also "Jail House Rocky is also a sling doll, meaning he features a unique hat sling that allows you to take him anywhere, and hook him onto almost anything." AWESOME! He would be my perfect accomplice!

You can find kodashii88 by going to please take a look, he has such a beautiful shop with so much more to see!

Universal Studios back lot

I never really got excited about the Universal Studios back lot tour but the more I do it the more it seems to amaze me. Here's some pics mostly from Wisteria Lane on Desperate Housewives, I don't watch the show but I think the houses look way neat.

Creature from the Black Lagoon

Oh my goodness! Things have been crazy hectic for a few weeks now and I don't see them slowing down anytime soon, which is fine with me. I needed a pick me up and a adrenaline rush everyday! Keeps me on my toes. I have been so caught up in the goings on that I haven't had much me time which is the only thing that irks me. I every so often need to get away and have some solitude, not that that's an unusual request but I finally got it on Sat. and most of Sunday. It was great! And then we finally got to put our pool up and I've been able to get about an hour or so every day to kick back and get my tan on!

Other than that Dave and I did get to go to Universal Studios last week to be some of the first to see The Creature from the Black Lagoon musical show. It was way freakin' cool. The set was amazing, above average singing on almost every one's part, and a good amount of humour, although there could have been a bit more. But all and all it was really entertaining and well put together and written. But the coolest part was that we got to get into the park for free, which we weren't expecting. So we went on Jurassic Park twice and got to go on the Simpson's ride, which used to be Back to the Future. I liked the Simpson's ride better, Dave liked Back to the Future better. It's just that the Simpson's was so bright and it seemed more realistic to me even though it was a cartoon? Who knows. But it was a nice visit to the park and a great escape from the heat of the Inland Empire sun! Yikes!
