That’s All, Folks

The TV Guide

Welp, my trip home to Detroit was FINALLY successful yesterday when I was able to take my parents out for a celebratory meal for my dad’s birthday on Friday. As I mentioned before, I had planned on surprising my parents by randomly showing up at their house but I was the one who got surprised because they were out on the town and I was left freezing my ass off on the porch … alone. But I digress … I had to spoil the surprise so I could nail my parents down for lunch yesterday and a successful lunch was had :D More »

Nightclubbing

The TV Guide

Yesterday turned out to be a fun day even if things didn’t work out exactly as planned. I was hoping to surprise my parents by showing up on their doorstep for my dad’s birthday yesterday but my secret was too good … because I wasn’t able to surprise them at all. Long story short, I spoke with them on the phone to ensure that they would be home for me to pop over and go SURPRISE! But by the time I got there, they had already gone out for the night. HELLO?! How is it that my parents have a more active social life than I do? The plan is to reschedule the surprise for tomorrow instead. Ah well. Last night turned out to be fun, tho. Sarah, Mark and I made our way to my favorite club in the world City Club and we danced our buns off until the wee hours of the morning :D More »

13.1 Down, 26.2 To Go

The TV Guide

So … I didn’t get a chance to post The TV Guide yesterday so I’m going to use this post to update all y’all on my adventures here in Orlando, FL over the past few days. I got in Thursday night and since then, made a new friend, met some great Pink readers, played in the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World and, oh yeah, ran a half marathon. I’ve been bizzy but I’ve been having an absolute BLAST thus far. I still have some work ahead of me (ahem, a FULL marathon tomorrow) but I’m excited!!! More »

A Friend, Indeed

The TV Guide

After a bit of running around yesterday, I met up with Steph and Alek to hang out for a bit and grab dinner. Unprompted by me AT ALL, Alek suggested that we drive out to Burbank to have dinner at the Outback Steak House. I was so dumbstruck by the suggestion from someone else to go to the Outback that I thought I was dreaming … but, thankfully, it wasn’t a dream. We hopped into my car and headed out for a delicious dinner together :D More »

New Year, New Race

The TV Guide

So, yesterday was a very bizzy day. The first part of the day was spent celebrating the first birthday of a friend’s darling baby and the second part was spent running the streets of downtown LA for the New Year’s Race half marathon. Honestly, I love running in the evening or at night, I generally prefer it to running first thing in the morning … but a half marathon that starts at 9:30 pm is no joke … especially after you’ve been up running around all day ;) More »

Foursome

The TV Guide

As you may have noticed, Pink is the new Blog was offline for pretty much most of the day yesterday. A server technical problem rendered the site inaccessible until well into the evening here on the West Coast so that day was pretty much a wash. Normally, this kind of thing would send me into a tailspin of stress but considering the stuff I’ve been dealing with personally in recent months, I honestly didn’t sweat it all that much. There was nothing I could do to fix it so, I just waited it out. I managed to get some errands done by day and then got home in time to post a few things to try and salvage the day. Last night I had dinner with Darion, Steph and Alek … it was the first time the four of us shared a dinner together in a very long time, it was well overdue. More »

12/12/12

The TV Guide

And so … I have returned to the mainland from my recent Hawai’ian vacay. Altho Emma and I had to fly back to LA in the early afternoon, we did our best to enjoy our last moments in Honolulu before we had to say Aloha. The flight back was pretty uneventful even if it did feel really long but we made it home without incident, without delay. It’s a bit gloomy and cold here in LA today but I’m not complaining, I guess it’s good to be home. More »

Hanama Bay Bay Kids

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last full day here in Honolulu, Hawai’i and I have to say, it was a pretty darn good one. Emma suggested we go snorkeling in Hanama Bay so that’s what we did. OMG, I can’t even tell you how beautiful it is in the bay … the photos below don’t even do it justice. We started our day relatively early so we had a lot of time to swim, snorkel, nap on the sand … it was amazing. The rest of the day was fun, too, but as always … time flies when you’re having fun.

No Doubt ROCKS LA On Night 6 Of Their Week Long Residency

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Darion and Courtney and we met up with their friend Subha at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City to see No Doubt LIVE in concert. No Doubt is playing a string of 7 sold out nights at the venue and last night was night #6 of the run. While I was very much looking forward to the show, I can’t say that I was overly excited for the show. My excitement level went up considerably once the show began and I was reminded by how many hit songs the band has put out over the years. It had been AGES since I saw No Doubt in concert so it was really fun seeing them in action again. Click below to check out some photos and watch 2 performance videos that I shot at last night’s show. More »

Just Deserts

The TV Guide

I have made my way back home from my weekend in Palm Springs and I have to say, the trip was mostly very fun. Jordan invited a group of his close friends to spend the weekend together at the Ace Hotel so that we could party and relax and celebrate altogether. Altho I had much on my mind, I was able to let got and have genuine fun with some really amazing people. Ollie graciously accompanied me for the weekend trip and I cannot express how much I love her for being there for me. In the end, I’m glad I made the trek into the desert. More »
