Summer 2012 in a nutshell.

Hi. Hello. Hola?! Anyone still there?? 

I have neglected my poor little blog for over 4 months now. 

It just hasn't been a priority to journal. With the lack of internet at my house, (cost an arm and leg to get it where I live now) the only time I get to blog is when I go to coffee shops after work or on the weekends. And to be honest, I have been LAZY. 

I still check my google reader daily to read all of my favorite blogs.... but that's it. =)

I thought today was as good as any day to try and start back up. =) 

Let's start with a photo recap of the last few months...


Relay For Life 

River time with my sister! 

Brew Fest with a big group of friends! 

Meeting Chris Powell at a local event!!! And yes, he is as hot and nice in person as he seems. 

SF for the day! 
Wraped Tour in SF. Took me back to highschool 

Dinner in SF and exploring. 

Cousins Bachelorette party in Reno! We had a blast and almost lasted until the sun came up.


Went to NYC for a long weekend. It's my most favorite city. I dare to call it home someday... *soon*

Celebrated my cousins wedding day!

The kiss! 

Fun at the bars with friends. 

My cousin gave birth to a precious little boy.


The Color Run Sacramento with my girl, Stephanie.

Added a new member to the family. Meet Boston!

Visited with out Great Grandma for her 99th Birthday! 

Went to Half Moon bay for a morning hike with our cousin. ( I have a lot of cousins.... or I just hang out with them a lot according to my descriptions..lol)

Went to another Brew fest! What can I say...I like beer? 


Went to Reno. Had coffee. =) 

Went to the balloon races in Reno. Gorgeous morning. 

Headed down to LA to celebrate Leslie. We had her bridal shower on a Friday evening. After we were done, we packed up the car and drove through the night to Vegas. We arrived in Vegas at 5:45am. Just in time to see the sunrise. 

We did Vegas right. After having no sleep Friday night we stayed up for all of Saturday. We relaxed by the pool, in our huge suite, and then suited up to go out on the town. We didn't go to bed until 3:30am on Sunday morning. We stayed up for almost 2 days straight.

Sunday Morning we got up and had mimosa brunch. lounged by the pool some more. Got pretty again.

Sunday night we had dinner at Serendipity. Tried the famous frozen hot chocolate. It was also my birthday on Monday so I got to celebrate my birthday Sunday night. Sunday night was wild. But as they say, "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas".  We went to bed at 5 am Monday morning. Then flew home that same day. It was a crazy fun adventure.

I have more to September but the pictures aren't uploaded yet. It will have to be saved for another day. I'm just glad that I got to share some of my adventures for the summer on the blog before I forget about them.
