cutie shoes!

i've said time and time again that yo gabba gabba is the best kids show around and they still haven't let me down. i went on their website recently to look up some clips of their super music friends show (i wanted to see the jimmy eat world clip) and they had an ad for these awesome yo gabba gabba toddler vans slip ons!
most people who know me know that i worked at vans shoes for almost 6 years, so i have a special loyalty to vans. they are just too cute!

they would be perfect for my niece, emily jay.

here are a couple of pictures from her yo gabba gabba 2nd birthday party:



love her and love those shoes!

Places B & O Expresso

a few of our friends are in town and we're all having fun showing them around. on friday night we went to eat dinner and afterward we all had dessert at b & o expresso in capitol hill. they serve all kinds of food, but we specifically go there for their awesome desserts and coffee. there's also a bar on the side.

Music: Broken Social Scene

one great thing about living in seattle is that there are tons of bands that come to have concerts. last week friday kevin and i went to see broken social scene at paramount theater. kev and i just love them, so we had to go. plus the sea and cake opened for them and kevin likes them a lot too. it was double good times for him.


paramount theater is so beautiful! that was my first time there.

it's been a while.

wowsers. it's been about a month since my last post.

i was back home in hawaii practically all september, so i took a little break from the blog. but at the urging of my awesome friend, denise, i'm back in the saddle again.

since i was still in seattle at the beginning of september and kevin was in hawaii we didn't get to spend my birthday together, which was on september 3rd. it was sad, but the fact that he bought me an awesome present made it okay.

presenting my brand new digital camera!
this is the samsung TL110. my previous camera was very, VERY old with 4.1 megapixels. little did i know that nowadays digital cameras have no less than 10 megapixels. this new one has 14.2 mp. in the words of kevin, "you poor girl."

i love it! here a a couple of pictures i took to test it out:

hooray for clearer pictures!
