Oh man... if only Simon could see us.

We did this at the LA Car Show last night- and this showed up in my email inbox. So awesome. Make sure you look for Julie at the very beginning- she chickened out but you can see her sitting by Rachael at the beginning.

You wanna see the most expensive shoes I've ever bought?


Yep. This is a picture from JCrew's website. I must say, I'm pretty stinking proud of these. They're so awesome! The color is really unique, and of course, anything this shiny HAS to be cool. Plus all of JCrew's shoes are really well made, so they'll last for a long time.


So who else, besides me, feels bad for the old man that bumped his head?

Tonight (technically yesterday- I'm up late) me and some friends went to the LA car show. Saw some cool cars. But that's not what was so cool- Rachael said she wanted to wear her rain boots, and of course I wanted to, too!! So we walked around the show for the 2 or so hours we were there, and my feet hurt like crazy because apparently wearing thick rubber boots for that long will do that to you. But it was worth it...


So awesome. I splashed and splashed... It's still pouring, as I write this, at 2:54 AM.

The funny thing is, Rachael didn't wear socks under her boots, and when we came home and tried to take ours off, mine were relatively easy to pull off, but Julie and I both pulled so hard to get Rachael's boots to come off, we ended up dragging her clear across the floor! MAN those suckers DID NOT want to come off!!! Whoooo!! We laughed so hard that we worked off all the calories we ingested at Roscoe's (side note: I've never been there before and it's the bomb diggity. Soooo good! Their waffles are really good, and you pair them with good fried chicken and you create a meal that should never be eaten by a girl trying to watch her girlish figure. Well, at least I'm content with watching mine leave... ha!).

Anyway tonight was a pretty exciting night.

Mes remerciements

You know, I really should be grateful for what I have. I've got an amazing place to live that is in an amazing city.
Most of my family within an hour or so driving distance.
Good friends who listen to me every now and then (I don't think it's a good idea to complain too much).
A few (ok, a lot of) stinking awesome pairs of shoes.
Some possible love interests.
A good tech support guy/friend.
A really cool and fun roommate, who pushes me to be a better person, and to grow up, for crying out loud! (My words.)
Ridiculously good taste in music (not bragging, it's true!).
Lots of subjects I am passionate about that are pretty widespread (good music, photography, possibly product or graphic design, well-constructed clothes and shoes, politics, dancing, relationships, the way mine and other people's brains work, correct spelling, hot chocolate and really good fruit pie, feng shui, and boys).
A Franklin Covey planner that saves my butt almost every day.
A cute little red car.
A body.
A well-balanced brain (thanks to my parents- Dad for the math/tech side, and Mom for the artsy side).
My testimony.
Many, many things that have been given to me that I really don't deserve.
The ability to remember, every now and then, that I really don't deserve them. for the really cool shirts that make people think I'm a cool person for wearing them.
My little knowledge of French, so I can look cooler than my dad, although I never do. You can't beat someone who says, "Those French!! They have a DIFFERENT WORD FOR EVERYTHING!!!"
A bucket of fun pens on my desk.
The fact that I can see right through Twilight- that it's a ridiculous over-hyped impossible love story, set upon plaguing the world's women of their happy and realistic dreams, replacing them with wishes for something that doesn't exist, or at least probably isn't good for them, anyway. I mean, do you really want some guy to crawl through your bedroom window every night, watching you sleep? Sure it sounds cute, but that's the last of your privacy. GONE! I'll admit, however, that they were exciting- who can shake off all that suspense?
My love of reading.
My equal love of sleep, although sometimes the reading wins.
My past experiences, to teach me where my limits are.
My dreams, to make me break out of my box ad try new things.
My $15 razor scooter that I bust out every now and then, just to make people laugh.
My new family and brother-in-law.
My reading glasses.
My ukulele.
