new loves…

So in honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d mention a few things I’ve discovered that I like this weekend 🙂

1. Idyllwild in winter – I’ve been there before in the spring but we went there this weekend and it was awesome! (more to come on this topic – above picture is from there)

2. Knee deep snow – very very fun to play in as long as a hot shower is near

3. The new Fray CD – The gentleman bought it for me for Valentine’s Day, it’s pretty freaking awesome!

4. Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos – I think I might even like these better than flamin’ hot cheetos

5. Seeing movie stars in public – Kind of makes me feel excited but then feel dumb for feeling excited but then excited that I snuck a picture. (See this coming photo Friday for details)

Happy Valentine’s weekend – hope it was happy!

Horton Hears a Who…

So we finally got around to seeing the movie Horton Hears a Who. We weren’t really expecting too much since it didn’t seem to be the most popular movie. (but then again, I don’t read reviews or like to know anything about a movie before I see it)

Anyway, we thought it was fabulous! It was funny and clever but also had a pretty pro-life message. That really really surprised me. I have never read the book and so I wonder how much of it was just in the book but still, they made the movie! I won’t give away anything that actually happens in the movie but one of the quotes in it was, “Yes indeed, a life IS a life no matter how small.” Honestly, I was shocked to hear that. I know that the book and the movie were not talking about an unborn baby but that was the first thing that popped into my mind. Jared said the words that were on my mind, “Did that movie seem really pro-life to you?”

I know I tend to have an extreme viewpoint when it comes to abortion but I can’t help but think with people so concerned about human and even animal rights, at what point does someone obtain those rights? I know that the pro-choicers are very concerned with the woman’s right to choose, but I guess I would consider myself more of a human rights person then because a woman shouldn’t have the right to choose that someone shouldn’t have the right to live at all. I kind of classify that sort of thing under God’s job description. How can you care about peoples’ rights when you don’t allow the chance for someone to be born in the first place? Anyway, I have lots and lots of thoughts and ideas on the issue, but that’s just one that popped into my head and one that I was thinking about after the movie.

What do you think? Is a life truly a LIFE no matter how small? Or is it only a life after a certain point in pregnancy, or is it only a life after it’s born?

So following in failblog’s footsteps, I had a “failure” of my own this week. Jared had bronchitis last week and I felt under the weather this week so I thought I’d stop by the Frazier Farms and grab a few soups. Chicken noodle sounded especially good to me but as I looked I had a really hard time finding anything that resembled chicken soup. Feeling rather bummed, I finally came across this lovely picture of soup! A minor success! 

BUT, then I read the label, “No Chicken Noodle”…what?!?! So…hmm..

I looked for another few minutes and feeling rather “done”, I gave up and bought it anyway. Turns out, it means “no chicken” not “no chicken noodle”, it’s tofu. Whatever, it tasted close enough to chicken noodle. I guess that’s what you get at the health food stores!

New blog favs.

So recently (right around the time I came across the videos a couple posts ago) I also came across 2 blogs that I can’t get enough of! Please explore a few pages of these blogs…there is some good stuff in there and will definitely brighten your day 🙂

#1 – Fail Blog
Here is an example of what you would find on the site. I like it because of how simple it is. FAIL, that’s awesome! Plus, many of the pictures remind me of signs I saw in Asia, misspelled or not making sense.

#2 – Cake Wrecks
This blog is all about cakes that have gone wrong…but not just any cakes, professional ones! There are so many I could post about, but since I’m in the wedding business, I’ll have to post a picture of THE BEST WEDDING CAKE EVER! Here you go, and you’re welcome.
