The Ellen Show...

Months ago I signed up for free tickets to The Ellen Show, and the day finally came  

I had asked for 4 tickets so my SIL, my bestie, her friend and myself could go. Well 2 out of the 4 bailed.
So just my SIL and I went. We still had fun!

They changed our check-in time on us twice, and the last time I talked to them, they told me that we were going to screen the movie 50/50.

Monday was her live show, so we thought we might be on that episode, but I had a feeling that ours was airing on Wednesday, since her guests were the cast of 50/50, and I was right.

The movie was good! It made me cry!

We got out numbers and are waiting for our seats.
About to go in!

Such a funny and sad movie. It's based on a true story as well!

Maroon 5 also preformed their song "Move's Like Jagger"
I've seen them live before and I enjoyed it so much! They do not disappoint live!
Everyone was given the Maroon 5 CD, as well as the Snapple that they made. Super yummy!

After we left, we STARVING and we did not want to sit in LA traffic at 5pm, so we went to this little Italian restaurant called Lucas. OMG! Super yummy!. We shared our meal and was so glad that we did.

Crusted chicken with a Lemon Butter sauce. With mashed potatoes and veggies. To die for!
Then dessert was a lemon custard with strawberries and whipped. The best ever!

Well look for me tomorrow on her show!

5 Years Ago...

The world lost a good man.

He was my Pop-Pop.

I know a lot of you are thinking, "What is a Pop-Pop?" But he was my grandpa. I've barely met my Dad's family, so my Mom's family has always been both grandparents to me. So when I lost him, it was like losing both grandpa's at once.

My world changed the day that happened. I lost a lot of friends due to the fact that I felt they weren't there for me the way that I would've been there for them.  I also became a lot closer to the ones that I worked with at the time, because they were there for me.
Since then, I've rekindled the friendships, and still kept the ones with my old co-workers. 

I know that I couldn't have lived the way I have without any of them.

 Here are some of the picture's that I have of my Pop-Pop.

My first picture with my Pop-Pop.

Fish Fry in 1986.
My favorite picture of him!

My last picture with him.

Their 50th wedding anniversary at Club 33 in Disneyland.

So What Wednesday...

Today I'm feeling extra blah, so I thought it would be a perfect 'So What' kind of day!

So what if I wake up early in the morning and go to the gym, but then take a nap, and am proud of myself for waking up early.

So what if I constantly drive with cruise control on, and get angry when others don't drive at a constant speed!

So what if I blog stalk for giveaways.

So what if I told them I couldn't 'work' so I could go to a taping of the Ellen Show.

So what if I'm a complete blogger-tard!

So what if I'm excited for the new fall shows to start so I can stay in bed all day to catch up.

So what if I sign up for freebies of things that I don't use.

So what if I blog stalk at places and times when I shouldn't.

So what if my birthday is coming up and i can't really think of anything to do.

So what if I immediately check my email after I post a blog to see if anyone has commented on it!

The Mr. & Mrs..

So it's been a few days since the wedding, and since NO ONE has posted any of the pics, I've had to steal the professional ones!

So Monday-Wednesday I "worked" every night, so it only left me Thursday to get all pretty for the day. I got my hands and feet done, eyebrows done, and my roots touched up since roots aren't pretty in picture's. 

My brother had to go out of town the week before his own wedding, so me being the wonderful nice sister that I am, drove the 5 1.5 hours on Thursday night to help with last minute things. It was wedding central in the house. I also offered to take their dogs to the boarding place for them. That backfired a little since I'm super allergic to one of the dogs and couldn't breathe by the time I made it back to town.

Saturday morning I took the dogs to be boarded, then off to the hotel. We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Brea. It was such a nice place. We headed off to Coyote Hills Golf Course for the rehearsal, then to BJ's for lunch. 
That night I decided to hang out with the groomsmen. The groom for his "last night of freedom" spent with his sister sipping wine. :)

Sunday morning consisted of BrideZilla! Since she had 8 bridesmaids and only 1 person doing make-up and hair we had to start getting ready at 8am! The wedding didn't start until 5pm. So I hope you enjoy these beautiful picture's since that day was so pretty!

The bride asked us all to be in the wedding by making us all shirts.

My nephew!
Good looking group!

My Nana and Mom
My new Sister!

Handsome little man!
