Yeah so Adam came home from work at like 7 and informed me that Maroon 5 was going to be playing at the State Fair. Turns out they were playing tonight! So we hopped in the car at like 7:20 and fought the traffic to try and get there by 8 when they started to play. We were a little late but oh my god, it was so great...and so packed! At first I couldn't even see (we'd somehow managed to get behind the tallest people ever, I swear! But yeah after awhile I was able to slowly inch my way up to the front of the area we were in so I could see. So cool! They played really well and I'd never realized that the lead singer played guitar before but he was really really good! So yeah, that was definitely a welcome surprise for what was an otherwise boring ass day! : )

The Princess Diaries 2...
...or perhaps "the sequel that shouldn't have been made." Ok maybe that's being a little harsh. The movie actually was cute. And i liked that there was more romance in it. I just think it could have been sooo much better than it was. For one thing, repeated jokes from the first one does not make them still funny, it makes them lame. And they pretty much tried to fit every good one from the first one in which was just not a good plan. If the movie had been made to stand entirely on it's own it probably would have been really good...oh well, at least the guys were cute!

Take me out to the ballgame...
Ok so I realize I'm really awful about ever updating this thing but I'm really busy with...summer? hehe Yeah so last week Adam's lil bro was visiting from Idaho so we (me, Alyssa, Adam and Colin) all went to the SF Giants game against the Reds. They ended up losing but it was a really close exciting game including the first ever in the park home run at SBC Park. The best part of the whole game though had to be Lou Seal, the Giants' mascot. In the last inning the seal decides he's going to distract the other team's pitcher by flashing him! It was really funny but disturbing at the same time. Especially after the 8th or so time he lifted up his shirt and danced around...I think he was enjoying it a bit too much hehe Add that to the cotten candy guy trying to take out Alyssa's head several times with his cotten candy pole, the girl behind us spilling her soda everywhere including in her purse (which left her cell phone dripping with soda), and almost getting our heads taken off by a line drive foul ball and I'd say it was a pretty great game!

Fun in the Sun
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
Well I spent the past week camping up at Wright's Lake with my family. Sooooo nice. Perfect weather and for once the lake wasn't super cold! So that was nice and relaxing just spending time outside getting fresh air and exercise...Alyssa and I even played tennis. The best part was when these 12 year old boys we know decided they were going to be "moving targets" and run across where we were playing...well one ended up getting smack in the balls by a ball...so funny! He was on the ground for a good couple of minutes after that...oops? hehe. It didn't however stop him from continuing to run across so I'd say no real damage done. The worst part of the trip was that for some reason I was the only one to get sunburned! (well except for my mom and her sunscreen applying "technique.") But yeah apparently SPF 48 still wasn't enough!!! argh! damn my fair 'red-head' skin! (L-squared, woot! lol) Overall the trip was a lot of fun and I totally didn't want to come home. But oh well, at least I can look forward to getting my pictures developed! : )

Introducing the new and improved me
Ok so I've realized that my favorite part of these blog things is making them look all pretty so I decided to ditch the old one and make a new and improved version...Isn't it pretty? This one is much more me so I'll probably be more likely to actually update it. Making it has taken the better part of two nights...html is kinda confusing! Especially since I don't know much about it so I was basically just randomly changing things and then seeing what happened. Fun times. But, I'm really happy with the way it came out, especially my super snazzy picture hehe. So woohoo, go me for finding a productive way to spend my summer.
"i am so awesome."
