oops, i forgot a visitor

this happened...

a little over a week ago now now, 
chad came into town and we headed to san diego for comic con. 
i know what you're thinking. 
and you're half right. 

one day i was sitting, watching all the costumes pass me by 
and a student from japan asked if i had 2-3 minutes for him to draw a picture of me.
he had to draw 100 faces for homework and i was #8.
this really only took him about 2 minutes!
chad said i look evil or like i'm up to something--
 but i seriously do that with my eyebrow when i feel uncomfortable. 
and the best thing about comic con, you ask? 
definitely the scratch i got on my face from a lightsaber.
no joke!
i was so proud of it because, really... of course it would be a lightsaber. it's comic con!
i wish i thought to take a picture--it finally cleared up just this week.

this was bad of me but i had been sending chad pictures of this cute little lady 
from a puppy store for a few weeks before he came out.
so of course we had to pay her a visit as soon as he came into town.
 they fell in love.

 she doesn't look too happy to be with me but she sure loved chad. 
i think i had him convinced she called him dad.

any 500 days of summer fans out there?
we both loved the movie and when i asked chad what he wanted to do in la this was his first pick.
i don't know why i had never thought of it! 
at the bottom of the sign it says july, 17, 2009...
we were there exactly three years from the day they filmed there. 


we turned around to see if someone was around to take a picture of us
only to see a stranger already taking one...strange.
but convenient!

as always we were bad at taking pictures but let it be known...
amazing nerdy costumes were spotted, 
after two years of discussing the amazing spiderman was seen, 
the katy perry movie was watched, willingly by all parties,
bad pop music was listened to all week,
ucb theater was visited,
and i ate like a boy for a week.

viva las vegas

this handsome guy just left to serve a two year mission in chile! 

his farewell was in vegas so everyone traveled from california and utah
to get together for the weekend and see him speak.

we attempted to take a picture of all the cousins there...
it didn't turn out but kind of sums us up perfectly.

 [the girls!]

all i wanted to do was find a slot machine you pull—surprisingly hard to find!
but we found one and i won two whole dollars!

[very excited about my winnings]

and of course i loved getting to see this little baby.
miss her so much and love that we got to spend a few hours together!

we have had some fun visitors the last few weeks. 
mah baby sister and cute little cousins came to play for a few days and we had a blast!  

[a few pictures of the highlights to help me get all caught up on the blogging quickly!]

 first stop was 'mormon night' at dodger staduim-- we love our doyers!
[cute boys]

  since it was a friday there were fireworks after the game.
nothing is more patriotic than baseball and 


we camped out on the beach all day on the 4th of july and cooked hotdogs and made smores. so fun!

and last, but not least--our little baby sam turned 18! 18 i say!

and then we ended our fun with a trip to vegas...
next post!
