Love Is In The Air

15 Feb

B and I don’t like to exchange gifts for Valentine’s Day, instead opting to spend our money on going out to eat. He and I have a tradition of making each other original cards, using only printer paper and a pen. He and I both procrastinated this year and I may cheat and use a red sharpie. Before you get mad at me he cheated first by buying me roses. Below is an unfortunately low-quality twitpic of the bouquet (and his dog Wrigley.)

Let’s play catch up on my last 5 days shall we? I spent 3 wonderful days in Irvine, CA, with girl friends exploring the beautiful city and eating amazing food. (You lucky SoCal girls with access to Boudin’s sandwiches all the time I’m officially JEALOUS.) Unfortunately I don’t have pictures. I know, I suck. I came home yesterday and due to wonderful flight delays only spent 8 hours in airports and on airplanes (when total flight time should have been 1:15.) My wonderful boyfriend was kind enough to drive out to the airport around 11 Sunday night to rescue me from a tiring day. Continue reading

Irvine and Adrian Grenier (!!!)

10 Feb

The most amazing thing just happened to me. I was walking into the film building to work on a really annoying project I’ve been putting off all week. Right as the elevator door opened for me to get off, Adrian Grenier walked in. Yep. Actor Adrian Grenier. From Entourage. And The Devil Wears Prada. Can I just say….. OMG WTF I WAS IN AN ELEVATOR WITH ADRIAN GRENIER AND I DIDN’T SAY A WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I froze. He was singing. He’s beautiful. I”m literally KICKING myself for not saying hi. We made direct eye contact. Really, he has the most captivating eyes.

So why is he here in Tucson you may ask? Well, he recently produced a documentary called Teenage Paparazzo and he’s on campus to screen it tonight and do a guest lecture and Q + A sesh. I have tickets for me and my boyfriend and I’m really excited!  Alright so that was my 30 seconds of fame. Or, being next to fame. Sigh.

Aside from that little splurt of excitement, things have been going well aside from massive amounts of homework. Last night my girls and I went out for a fabulous sushi din where we splurged and ordered a huge sashimi combo boat, a caterpillar roll, rainow roll, and tempura. I meant to take pictures but… Sushi doesn’t last so long when placed on a table in front of my friends :)

After the documentary screening tonight I will be madly packing to go to Irvine tomorrow morning. Here’s what I’m thinking of wearing on the plane:

Initials are “It”

8 Feb

I am currently drowning under a sea of papers, tests, and generally unpleasant homework. The rush factor has been amped up as I found out last night I will be taking a spur of the moment trip to Irvine, CA, this weekend to enjoy a little r & r with my best girls. I’m so excited and can’t wait for a weekend a way… but I need to do homework first. Boo :( . Here are a few random internet findings I’m ogling. I’ve always loved initials and monograms. These are adorbs!


Gold stackable initial ring, $250 from http://www.shopvale.com


A vintage looking typewriter initial watch from Urban Outfitters, only $28.
