kitchen aid

today, against scott’s wishes and threatening his sanity, we will be doing our registry. 

i still am having issues asking for so many things. i know everyone does this (well mostly), its a great thing for married couples to aid in staring new lives together, and it helps guests with present purchasing. yet, i can’t help but feel like i’m just asking and asking for more and more things. i can get by now, i really can. i want things that you can’t necessarily purchase…  

i want a place that FEELS like home,

i want (and really do have) a love that never ends,

i want friendship, i want truth, i want faith,  i want spontaneity, i want stability


with all that said, registering is protocol, and i do enjoy designing our space.

i have decided on going for a neutral base – white and natural (dark) wood with accent pieces (such as appliances and furniture) to be jewel tones. i have a pretty good start on this. 


so, where now? could there be more choices? seriously, kitchen-aid, why did you make so many awesomely colored blenders? which do i pick? i LOVE the green apple, empire red, and tangerine. these along with other white appliances will defffinetly spice things up in the kitchen – something a newbie, such as me – needs despierately!!

pray for my love’s sanity – he really doesn’t like spending large amounts at target and bed, bath, and beyond.

always is a place

And I’d like to go there, 
Where love must grow, 
Where it’s all they know. 
And I’d like to see it. 
Where substance stays. 
Because that’s always. 
We’ve gotta be ones.

today is an ending to an extended weekend. status = very happy & content. 
these photos were taken with my iphone, with an app called “quadcam” 
i strongly advise purchasing it. i’m stingy when it comes to buying apps, actually this is the first i’ve ever bought. so you know its good. 

meet Sage – my grandparent’s golden lab. preshhh.
large indian in bakersfield. surprised?
emilee came up to bakersfield on her spring break. its the new destination. 
we took her to our favorite spot, “the junction.”
believe it or not, this place is amaaaazing. old cowboys, tone-deaf singers, and dj mac spinning the karaoke hits.
last night was no exception – everyone had a great time. we’ll make you believers.
experimenting with quad cam at chipotle with my love. we’re [almost] halfway through our 8 month engagement. 
its going by fast. its all downhill from here – time wise. probably uphill with all the planning and schooling and events going on in both of our lives. but we are enjoying this journey to august and the rest of our lives together. its such a blessing!!
speaking of our wedding, amanda auer, the mastermind behind In The Now Weddings + Events featured my bridesmaids look on her blog [here]. i am one of her assistants for weddings every now and again. oh how i wish i could help her with EVERYTHING. time and location doesn’t permit these wishes as much as i’d like. take a visit to her blog and show her some love!
next up – this weekend. hair appointment, picking up my wedding dress, family, ITN meeting, and friends.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of

digital love

i frequent the amazing google reader multiple times a day, following several (actually MANY) amazing blogs, full of inspirations and new ideas. oh google, i love you. 

I still stay in the loop with things going on in seattle, as that city has such a special place in my heart. Seattlest – a blog dedicated to stuff goin on in the city shared this story with me – get out and dance tonight – specifically the laser light show at the Pacific Science Center featuring one of my favorite groups, Daft Punk.  Lasers going along with some amazing dance/techno music. WHY COULDN’T THIS HAVE HAPPENED WHEN I LIVED THERE? I’d be the closest thing to seeing them live, which I must see. MUST
Some other images that I fell in love with this week, sorry I don’t have tags on them.

off to play.
