Sports 1140 Brewfest

Went to the Brewfest today with Wendy and Becki. G's band was playing and we went to check them out....and drink some beers of course. Felt quite weird having my first beer at 11:30am! It was alot of fun and there were alot of interesting characters! You can see all the pictures on Flickr.

I've been playing the Wii for the past couple days. It's hilarious and so much fun. My favorite game so far is the Warioware Smooth Moves. My favorite thing to do though is to make Mii's. Basically Mii's are characters that look like you.
This is my Mii:

And this is Bill's Mii:

Favorite Shoe

I loved the Nanette Lepore shoes so much that the girls got for the wedding that I decided to get them for myself. I got them in black cause I figured that they would go with more things. They are definitely my new favorite shoes! I call them my comfy sexy....and could there really be a better combination??

Sweet Tooth

Apparently June is National Candy month. I'm not sure why I found out about this with only THREE days left in the month. I guess I better hurry up and get my candy on while I have an excuse to eat it.

Sing, sing a song....

There's this new show coming on NBC called "The Singing Bee." It's basic theory is it's a spelling bee with singing. A song starts and when it stops, you have to sing the rest of the lyrics. Can I just saw that I am certain that I would KICK ASS (sorry Grandma) on this show?! I have always had this incredible knack for knowing song lyrics, in fact I'm convinced that most of my brain is being used with random song lyrics. If I could find my way on this show I would clean house! As cheesy as it is, this is going to be a must watch!!

Care for a smoke?

I'm so glad that times have changed. If I had to live in a time when guys hit on me by blowing smoke in my face I'd have to punch alot of people in the face!

New Bedding!

I decided after a 12 hour day of house cleaning that the spare bedroom was looking very drab and boring. I headed off to Ikea to see if I could spruce it up....and boy did I. For a total of $50 I got a new duvet, shams, bed skirt, pillowcases and throw pillows.....can't beat it! Now the room looks cheerful and bright. I love you Ikea!

Goodbye Deadwood!

I finished watching the last season of Deadwood and I'm feeling rather melancholy! I really enjoyed that show and was sad to see it come to an end. No more Seth Bullock, no more Al Swearengen........

Happy Equinox!

Happy day full of daylight, otherwise known as Equinox! We can celebrate by enjoying 19 long hours of sunshine here in Sacramento. That translates to me as only 5 hours of darkness to sleep in since there is really nothing special going on this day. In fact when some read the title of the blog, they probably thought I was celebrating about the Chevy Equinox. Why do they name cars like they do??

Water H2O

Yesterday Becki and I started a water aerobics class at the local pool. I must say, it was a pretty good workout! The only real problem was the music! I think between Becki and I we are really going to have to make these girls a good workout mix. I don't think I can stand more than about one session of C and C Music Factory!!

P.S. Neither Becki or I are in this picture. It is pretty funny though, when you look for a water aerobics picture online it's all older ladies!

1 point beer!!

I discovered a beer that is only 1 point! Beck's Premier Light!!! I finally found some at BevMo, which seems to be the only place that has it. I had one last night and I must say, not bad for a 1 point beer! For those that don't do light beer, you definitely won't like it. Doesn't have the super rich beer taste. It's just enough beer for me though.

Boating with Bill

Today Bill and I went to Lake Oroville together for a day of fishing and fun in the sun. I'm not a big fan of fishing, so I mainly went along for the sun part. It was a spectacular day! Bill caught his limit in fish, I got some sun and got to swim in the beautiful lake. We even had a little picnic, can't beat a day like today!

Turtles like yellow.

Last week we went to event and there was a giant turtle there. I was on my yellow bike and as soon as I started wheeling over to see the turtle, he came charging after me. I know, turtles move slow, but he really put those little legs in motion to come and see me. The turtle trainer had to come over and pick him up and move him the other direction.

I've always really wanted a turtle myself, but one this size would be crazy! He'd probably eat Louie!

Google has this great feature right now called iGoogle. It's basically a home page you can make with Google so you can have things all in one place: weather, email, horoscope, etc. You can also create fun gadgets to add to your page. I created a wedding countdown gadget and today officially marks 4 months remaining! Holy Moly does time fly. I remember patiently waiting for it to be 6 months so I could send my save the dates and now it's only 4. I have a feeling it's going to get faster and faster with each passing month!

My girlfriend Sondra from highschool started a business making cool baby and children apparel. This stuff is so great! Seeing cute stuff like this is what really makes my uterus start to ache! You can currently see her stuff on the Bratitude myspace page at

A must see!

Went to the movies today to see "Knocked Up." I'm a big fan of "The Fourty Year Old Virgin" so when the reviews started coming in for "Knocked Up" I knew I had to see it. It was fantastic! Super funny in a completely different way than "TFYOV." I really want to see it again just to get another laugh. I'll definitely be buying this movie when it comes out for sale.

Damn You!!!!

Today Bill and I decided to have a nice day on our bikes. We rode downtown to check out "Nascar Day" at the capital...which was pretty pathetic. Then we went to Downtown Plaza to work on our registry and were planning on going to a nice lunch afterwards. Unfortunately, when we left DP, we discovered that Bill's bike had been stolen. Mine was just sitting there all by itself with the bike lock cut and hanging sadly from the frame. It was very sad and put a damper on the fun day.

Damn you bike thieves!!! You should be ashamed of yourself and if I see you pedaling around on a purple Trek I'm going to take you down and kick your ass!! I guess the only way to keep our bikes safe is to start locking them up like this...

We're Registered

Bill and I registered for wedding gifts. It feels weird picking stuff out since we have so much already, but at the same time it was super fun!! We registered together at Macys and have started a registry at Crate & Barrel. C&B is still a work in progress!! I think both of us like the flatware that we picked the best. We found silver flatware that was shaped like fish, Yamazazi "Gone Fishin". Super awesome. I must inform people though that this flatware is a whole lot cheaper online off the Macy's website. I encourage all to discount shop if you can find things cheaper. This website called westernsilver has the flatware for about $20 less per setting!!!!

Dear Mr. Piss Bottle,

Hello Mr. Piss Bottle. I don't know you on a first name basis, but you know who you are. Let me start by saying that I know it's a long drive from Reno to Winnemucca. I also know that sometimes the rest stops and gas stations are few and far between. What I don't understand Mr. Piss Bottle is why you have to drink so much liquid that it is necessary for you to piss in a bottle while driving! I understand even less why you must throw your bottles of piss out the window and onto the side of the highway. I know it's easy for you to just whip it out and piss in a bottle, and maybe I am slightly jealous. Even more so I am disgusted by the fact that I lost count in the double digits at how many of your piss bottles I saw. Please, Mr. Piss Bottle, try to be a little more caring next time and plan your liquid consumption so innocent bystanders like myself do not have to find themselves so bored that the succumb to counting bottles of your piss!!

Thank you,
Bored in Nevada

*To all you other innocent bystanders out there I have saved you the grossness and did not take a picture of Mr. Piss Bottles litter!

Coke Zero released a new kind....Vanilla! I became a big fan of the Cherry Coke Zero and now this one has taken the lead. I highly recommend that everyone try it, even you non-diet drinkers out there.

Welcome to Club Aqua!!

I'm out of Sac for another week of fun in Reno. I'll be working ALOT on this leg so won't have too much time to galavant around. I'm determined that next time I'm here I'm going to find some of the cool stuff that the locals do when they aren't into casinos.

For this trip I'll just have to enjoy Club Aqua aka my hotel room. Everything in the room is a shade of aqua and talk about the mirrors! Holy moly! Unfortunaly in the picture you can't make out the tv, which was on when I came in the room, and was displaying underwater life swimming around. It was pretty entertaining. Talk about setting the mood! I discovered that this is a channel that I can watch 24-7 if I want to. Channel 28: Underwater Sea

Arcade Fire

Summer concert series continues! Tonight I saw Arcade Fire at the Greek Theatre with Kristin and Becki. It was such a good show! The band is pretty amazing both vocally and visually. There are 7 band members, but there were 10 playing tonight and they play all kinds of instruments....including just banging drumsticks on helmets. I had a chance to check out both their websites and they have to be the coolest sites I've seen in a long time. Very interactive and I dig the artwork. Check em out!

Unfortunately there are no other concerts on the books! I'm really going to have to do some research and find something else to see.

Overnight in style!

I've always thought that old luggage was cute. I look at pieces at the thrift store all the time, but for some reason am slightly turned off by it. Perhaps it's the smell of cat piss inside that causes this, but who can really say?

Luckily for me one was donated to the garage sale last weekend. It was in great shape, had no smell and when I opened it got even better! It is completely lined with this beautiful rust orange satin. I love it! I gave it a little wipe down and am ready to carry it this weekend.
