4-Ever

The TV Guide

Today, David and I are celebrating our 4 year anniversary :) It was 4 years ago today that we met in Amsterdam and, as it turns out, fell madly in love. Here is one of the first photos that we ever took together on that fated trip to Holland:


We can hardly believe it’s been so long … and yet, we still have a whole lifetime to share ahead. Thank you so much for all of your well wishes … we couldn’t be happier. We’ve got plans for a nice, quiet celebration today.

It’s a beautiful day, y’all … I hope you are able to enjoy it as much as we plan to :)

In ‘Gods’ We Trust

The TV Guide

BLAHHHHHHH! So, my day yesterday was totally shot … thanks to the ineptness of UPS. Long story short, they were due to deliver a piece of furniture from Pottery Barn … which I spent all day tracking. The status read “OUT FOR DELIVERY” all day long and the deliver never arrived. The status date was not updated this morning which got me worried. I called them and found out, OH — THEY LOST THE PARCEL! Then the UPS lady told me about how there needed to be an investigation to find it … which had me wondering, when might I expect to receive my furniture — she had no answer. Thankfully, the kind folks at Pottery Barn are rushing out a replacement piece which will likely arrive before the lost one does. It’s possible the lost parcel may be delivered today but, I’m no longer holding my breath :(

At least the Pottery Barn folks care about customer service, which is why I am happy to buy from them.

The only bright side to yesterday’s fiasco was that I had a lot of time to finish reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman:


I’ve read the book before when it was published in ’01 but I had a hankering to read it again … wow, it is such a fantastic book. Gods reminded me how masterful a storyteller Neil Gaiman is. It also reminded me why he is my fave contemporary author. I plan to read Anansi Boys soon but I want to re-read Gaiman‘s entire Sandman comic book series first:


It’s been ages since I’ve read the entire series, so that’s my plan.

I’m still totally annoyed by UPS tho, now I’m worried that if I leave today I’ll miss the package delivery … GRRRRR.

A Quiet Dinner For Two

The TV Guide

Last night David and I went out for an amazing dinner that he planned for Valentine’s Day night. We spent the day dealing with a few technical issues but managed to rally in time for dinner. He surprised me with dinner at Jaan inside the L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. We were treated to a sumptuous Valetine’s Day dinner that was insanely delicious. Afterward, we came home to enjoy the beautiful flowers we got for one another:


I shall refrain from sharing any other boring deets from our night together. It was a fantastic Valentine’s Day and I have no complaints :)

UPS is delivering some furniture today so I’m afraid we’ll be held captive in our home today waiting for our delivery. It’s so beautiful outside, tho, I hope I’ll get the chance to enjoy some of the 80 degree sunshine ;) Happy Monday!!

Spreading VD Far And Wide

The TV Guide

I hope all y’all are having a fantastic Valetine’s Day today :) David and I have been giving VD gifts all week long … first I got him a big batch of personalized M&Ms (with our photos on them) and then he gave me a beautiful message in a bottle :)


I got him flowers, he got me flowers … I got him chocolates, he gave me candy and a BIG balloon … oh yes, and the sappy VD cards. Yes, we’re shameless but that’s lurve for ya ;)

Last night, David, Josh and I met up with Darion, Tara, Yasmin, Peter and a bunch of their friends for a danceparty at Cherry Pop! We had a bit of fun, check out some photos after the jump … More »

Happy Valentine’s Day!

May the spirit of VD touch one and all

It’s Valentine’s Day, y’all!! And while that may not mean much (if anything) so some of y’all, I still want to take this opportunity to send out VD lurve to each and every one of y’all today:


When I was a kid I used to LOVE Valentine’s Day because in school we would hand out cards to all of our friends … it was so much fun getting little cardboard cards like this from all my classmates. I wish I could send out these fun little cards to everyone but this post will have to suffice. Whether you like it or not, I hope your day today is filled with love … and hopefully chocolates :)

Happy VD, y’all!!

Yo-Ho-Ho & A Birthday Cake

The TV Guide

As I mentioned previously, our good friend Josh Z. celebrated his birthday yesterday and David and I thought it would be fun to take him and his lovely lady Emma for dinner in Buena Park, CA at Pirate’s Dinner Adventure:


Hey, if Pirate’s Dinner Adventure is good enough for Victoria Beckham and her sons, it’s good enough for our friends, too!! JZ wasn’t too keen on turning another year old (heh, I can identify) so David and I wanted to take him somewhere fun to really celebrate his day. After the jump, check out some of other fun pics we took on our adventure last night … More »

Spirited Away

The TV Guide

Last week I decided that I want to re-watch the entire Charmed series (all 8 seasons) and as luck would have it, the re-runs on TNT coincided perfectly with that desire. I’m about mid-way thru season 1 and am loving the show all over again. Even tho I own the entire series on DVD in the limited edition Charmed: The Complete Series [Book of Shadows] collection


… my plan is to re-watch the entire series on TNT in 2 eps per day to stretch out my enjoyment ;)

This past weekend, I ordered an amazing prop replica of the Spirit Board used on the show and it arrived yesterday … and is SO MUCH COOLER than I though it would be. I already own the Spirit Board prop replica that was used in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 7 episode Conversations with Dead People so this Charmed Spirit Board is a welcome addition to my collection:


Trust me, I am not the sort of person who likes to play with Ouija boards but I do love these prop replicas. I also have a traditional Ouija board signed by the members of Marilyn Manson put away at my parent’s home back in Michigan … which makes it sound like I collect them or something. I actually love collecting prop replicas from my fave TV shows but it just so happens I know have all of these Ouija boards. So yeah … that’s about the extent of my exciting day yesterday. I’m not sure if there are any Charmed fans out there but I think it might be worth re-watching the series again. I had forgotten how fun the show is … and I have never re-watched the entire series in full so, I’m excited. This weekend, I’m dragging David out to go with me to see the actual house that was used in the Charmed series as the the Halliwell mansion (which is here in LA) so that I can take photos. Yes, I’m a nerd but at least I’m having fun :) Wee!!

Sun Day

The TV Guide

Whew! After a few days of cold, dreary rain the sun has finally come out to say hello again! I’m not sure if the rain is gonna be gone for good but, for this week at least, the sun is here to stay:


A few Pink readers on Twitter have been sharing their snowy photos from back East … some are beautiful, some look miserable … in either case, I do not miss the snow. The sun is pouring into the window right now and I am loving it!! The forecast is for near 80-degree weather this weekend. I’m thinking shorts and flip flops, I cannot wait!!

No exciting news for today … I’m getting my hair cut and then a few mundane things around the house. I never did that laundry I mentioned before … blah.

Pen Pals

The TV Guide

After a fun weekend with David’s siblings, he and I went out for a quiet movie date together to see Dear John last night. Considering it was the movie that knocked Avatar out of the #1 position at the box office, we were really expecting a great film. I’m happy to report that we were not disappointed:


Firstly, I had not previously read the novel Dear John by Nicholas Sparks but I am familiar with his style of tale telling. Basically he throws everything AND the kitchen sink at you to get you all emotionally riled up and then he really turns the screws to ensure that you bawl your eyes out. I have to say, the movie did not turn out the way I thought it would. I wouldn’t say there were surprise twists (well, OK, mebbe there was one surprise twist) but the story ended up going somewhere I was not prepared for. Channing Tatum was pretty good in his role as John Tyree … sure, he’s not the best actor but he did a good enough job, I thought. The boy plays a solider in 80% of his films, a dancer in the other 20%. He’s got both of those character roles down pretty well. Amanda Seyfried was really charming, very sweet and totally believable. I loved the film. The ending left me wanting more but, all-in-all, I was happy with the film. If you love Sparks‘s other stories, you’ll prolly like this one. I’m not sure how the film is different from the book but having only seen the movie, I was satisfied with the outcome.

No plans for tonight … I have a lot of stuff to get taken care of here at home … I’ll prolly be eyeball deep in laundry all day long. Not the best way to spend a Tuesday but at least it’ll be a nice, relaxing day.
