My favorite. Ha.

Merry Christmas! Now on to the final six presents to wrap! Yes!

when the lights go down in the cit-ay

Major points if you get the musical reference for this post title!

Last month for fall break we took a semi last minute trip to San Francisco, because we are childless and we can. I had never been (that I was old enough to remember at least) and it was a lot of fun to take on the role of tourist for a long weekend (which we played to a T)! It was also the maiden voyage of our fancy-for-us camera, so I got a little snap happy. Even though I still have no idea how to use that bad boy off of auto, so you'll have to excuse my lack of photography skills. I will obviously never be a photographer :) 

Lets go on a little picture journey, shall we?

Pit stop in the Sierras

 Home to a whole lot of big trees that are super duper cool for about 20 min.

OBSESSED with all the architecture! Too bad they are obscenely expensive.

On our super bad bus tour. At least the tour guide thought his own jokes were funny.

At the aquarium. Not the coolest aquarium ever, but when you have free passes...

 Hi Oakland Temple!

Alcatraz. Audio tour=the best.

We made some friends.

Bye, The Rock.

Just modeling on the beach. NBD.

 Thanks mom for teaching me that no trip anywhere is complete without trying the local cupcake places. They taste better on the beach too, in case you were wondering.

This little guy wanted some cupcake action!

Some ladies that are painted. I'll take the yellow one in the middle, thanks.

 Okay, if you find yourself in SF, and you are fortunate enough to have a lovely sunny day, DO take advantage of the bike tours. Easily my favorite thing of the whole trip. You take a bike from the city, across the bridge, and then hang out in Sausalito for a little bit while you wait for a ferry ride back. So fun.

Congrats if you made it to the end of this beast of a post!

me gusta escuchar musica

Especially this song at the moment. And I'm too cheap to buy it, so I'm just listening to it on YouTube over and over.

this movie

The Mask of Zorro.

The Zorro with Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones. I cannot even begin to explain my love of this movie. The love. The betrayal. The revenge. The evil, daughter stealing Spanish men. Antonio Banderas going from this:

To this:

Oh baby.

This movie popped into my head while I was sitting in class the other day, and I've been wanting to buy it ever since. We don't buy a lot of movies, but this one is a keeper for sure. 

So after wanting so badly to see it, and making a mental note to find it on Amazon, what do I find on TV on this boring night home while Cam is at school?

Yep. The Mask of Zorro. So much happiness.

I have so many memories of watching this movie as a kid. My friend Kara and I watched it at many a "double sleepover" (a double sleepover is a rare but magical event in which you have two sleepovers in a row. And it is awesome.) and my sister Megan and I would act out the part with Antonio Banderas and his horse when they attempt their first night out with the mask, with special emphasis on the part when he calls his horse "estupido!" I'll just let the clip do the talking.

The point is, you should watch it again. And if you haven't seen it, repent, and then do so.

oh, hey blog!

So, I don't usually feel like I have anything worth blogging about. Which isn't entirely true. I have an amazing husband, wonderful family, great (at times, ha) job, and a ridiculous cat named Walter who has an addiction to licking plastic bags. I could write novels, I tell you! But in the great abyss of wonderful blogs to read, I feel like mine is just another. Another I'm-a-newlywed-look-at-me-and-my-cute-husband blog. And maybe it is. And maybe that is okay. 

On to the point here.


Ohhhh yes. Sweet, sweet cupcakes. Yesterday I devoured a cupcake of such absolute perfection that I must now write an entire bloggy post about it. A cupcake that I may or may not have gone back to purchase two more of since. A cupcake that I immediately had to take to my mom to try. A cupcake with a decadent chocolate base, creamy pink peppermint frosting, and glittery crushed peppermint gracing its top. A cupcake that is an explosion of Christmas cheer in your mouth.

So please, do yourself a favor and go and get a chocolate peppermint cupcake at The Sweet Tooth Fairy right now. You can thank me later. Or now, because I know you'll love it.
