03. still messing around with picnik. {see a few more here.}

just us {cont.}

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Remember a few weeks back when I told you about our wedding gift from my aunt & uncle?? A custom silhouette painting from Chicago Contemporary Art! This is their most popular piece that you might recognize. Anyway, we just got an e-mail from the artist last night and our piece is finally done! YAY! He sent us a photo so that we could approve before he ships it to us. Here it is:

Photobucket


We absolutely LOVE it!! It is very similar to the colors used in Just Us which is exactly what we wanted.. so we couldn't be happier. And it's funny, because really it just a silhouette- very hard to tell anything about the people. But when we look at it, we can tell it's us. Maybe it's just because we know that he modeled the piece after images of us or maybe he is just really good. Either way we are thrilled! I can't wait to hang it!! =) I will be sure to post pictures of the final product displaying proudly in our house.

come fall.

I have been eyeing this bag for weeks....


....periodically clicking on the link in my favorites and admiring how amazing it would be come fall. My luck changed the other day when I checked on it and it was listed as on sale! I found it at a local department store for a mere $30!!! Thats $50 less that it's original price. And I must mention that it was the last one the store. Yippie me!! I scooped it up and it will be patiently waiting in my closet for falling leaves.... =)

picnik.

I will start by telling you about my darling Caitlin. Caitlin and I have been friends since forever; since we were little tots having tea parties with our dolls. She is practically my sister and always will be; our families are basically intertwined. Her mother and my mother became friends in college... and so the story goes. She is by far one of my favorite people on the planet and we are always looking out for each other.

Here we are on my wedding day:

Photobucket



And here we are being the real "us":

Photobucket


Now that we are all grown up, our "tea parties" consist more of this:

Photobucket


Here we are getting crazy on the bus for my bachelorette party:

Photobucket


She even got me on stage that night:

Photobucket



Oh, how I love her. Anyway, long story short- she always tries her hardest to cheer me up when times are hard. With everything that's been going on in our family the past couple of weeks, I should have known she would have done something. At volleyball last night, she gave me this:

Photobucket

It's a photo in a frame of us tailgating last year in Iowa City, and she had it edited so that only we are in color, everything is black and white. And she wrote on it "bean & squirt" our nicknames since we were kids. What is even more appropriate, is that this picture was taken right after I dropped my purse IN the portapotty. Yes people, this is true. I had had a little too much to drink that night and in the purse went. {We now all wear our purses around our necks before entering the portapotty- learn from this ladies.} In the picture I am crying because I was so upset and mad at myself, and there is squirt trying to cheer me up, as usual. :) I hope everyone out there has friends like mine.

So now, the reason for my post-- how amazing is that picture that she edited?!?!?! I absolutely love it and it's sitting proudly on my desk. But we had to know where she did it at. The site is called picnik and it is completely amazing. I messed around with it for a bit this morning and there are so many options; it's my favorite new toy! I am already a Photoshop junkie. I love it. However, due to its great expense, I only have one version {an old one} on my computer at home-- therefore making it unaccessible quite often. This site has so many options that Photoshop has {not as manual as Photoshop} but still available choices! And it's super user-friendly. Check out this SOTC {straight out of the camera} shot of Kirby from the weekend here:

And here after I played with it a bit:

Ah-mazing! You can pretty much go as wild or subtle as you want. I'm in love... Be sure to check it out!

Monday, July 28, 2008

For those of you browsing my current happenings in Google Reader, pop out for a second and notice the new header! I messed around in Photoshop for a bit on Saturday morning and came up with it. Fairly simple, but I love that picture of us. I worked for a while to try and incorporate a picture of G in it too... but couldn't get anything to look simple enough. I'm wanting a change, but want to keep things simple. What do you think?!? Yay or Nay?

hello miss lady.

At last, we finally had a bit of "normalcy" this weekend; and we took full advantage. Friday night we met up at Aaron & Kathy's place and chit-chatted, ate, and drank some brewskies before heading to our late showing of Stepbrothers! That's right! And it was absolutely AH-MAZING! We are big fans of comedies, especially ones with Will Ferrell. Up until now Old School has been our number one, but now it is a steady tie with Stepbrothers. I can't even begin to explain how it was so funny- but we were all gasping for breath from laughing so hard the entire time. If you're a fan of funny- you have to see this movie. {Oh and I hope you're not scared off by F-bombs.}

Dale: Did you touch my drumset?
Brennan: Nope.
Dale: Why are you so sweaty?
Brennan: I was watching cops.



Saturday morning the hubby had to go into work, so G and I spent the morning on the couch, watching It's A Boy Girl Thing. I LOVED it. Granted I am a sucker for sappy, teenage movies; but it was too cute! Very similar a la Freaky Friday but way better {and I thought I loved Freaky Friday.} Of course it helps that I adore Samarie Armstrong, but seriously; if you're into sweet-hearted, teeny bopper, love stories like me; you won't regret it.


When Brian got home from work we did some cleaning, laundry, etc. and then got ready for our night out. We hit up a Sick Puppies/Drowning Pool/Seether concert! Our whole gang went and we had a flippin' blast! I'm not a huge fan of any of the bands, but I do know the occasional song and I can rock out with the best of them. Did I mention that Aaron's friend was working the beer tent? This entails all 6 of us drinking free beer for around 4 hours before the concert started.

It was pretty much amazing. A night that I really needed. We stayed out way too late and ran into everyone under the sun, as you usually do at these things. Hit up Perkins for breakfast and went home to crash.

I was feeling not-so-great the next morning, but we kept our priorities in line and hit the road to go see my grandma 40 minutes away {or so we thought.}

My mother grew up in a town litterally 40 minutes from where we live now, and I have been going there since I was a little tot. Ask me now, how in the heck Brian and I missed our turn to go there and after driving 30 minutes in the wrong direction realized that we were an hour away?!?! {say what?} I blame this entirely on the alcohol still affecting my functioning and my husband's trust in me. He has no sense of direction; ever. Therefore solely relying on me for these purposes? Whoops! Even though we have been there actually countless times over the years. In any event, we had quite the lovely detour, looking mostly at this:


Photobucket




Since it was gorgeous!! How could we be mad? And how cute is he though? Seriously.

Photobucket




We actually quite enjoyed our detour; you should have seen us blasting the music, singing at the top of our lungs, windows down, in the middle of nowhere, with no where else we'd rather be.

Oh, and we saw this: {cool}

Photobucket




We hung out with my grandma and other family members most of the day. Kirby insisted on riding home with us: :)

Photobucket



We had a quite a few errands to run after returning home. So we ran around town as fast as we could so we could get home to our G. We picked him up a new bone on the way too:

Photobucket




Then we all passed out on the couch, watched L.A. Confidential, and ate a Pizzeria Uno frozen pizza that we scored at the store! {Not as good as the real thing, but still damn good.}

Here's G passed out in the bed later that night. He is the craziest sleeper ever!! In case you can't even tell what this is.. his head is upside down at the bottom of the bed and the blankets are over top of him. You can just see his head here at the foot of the bed:

What a great couple of days. I am waiting for Friday already.... Uh oh.

I am worried about my grandma.

I think that I am very blessed.

I know my husband is my best friend.

I want to be a mother someday.

I have an amazing group of friends and family.

I wish that we had no debt.

I hate negativity.

I miss my childhood.

I fear not having enough money.

I feel like an adult.

I hear the air kicking in.

I smell perfume.

I crave water.

I search for options; ways.

I wonder what I will do for a living 5 years from now.

I regret ever using credit cards.

I ache in my back.

I care about my friends and family more than they might always realize.

I always try to have perspective.

I am not easily intimidated.

I believe in the strength of love.

I sing in the car; always.

I cry at commercials sometimes; I am a sap.

I don't always make the smartest choices; but I always follow my heart.

I fight for what I believe is right.

I write sporadically.

I never want to lose the amazing relationship and communication that I have with my husband.

I stole this idea from ptg.

I listen to most everyone around me.

I need to organize my office.

I am happy about so much.

This is the most amazing thing I have seen in quite some time.



I want one. Thanks Orange!

{cinema} craze.

The best movies always come out during the summertime.. but this summer seems to be jam-packed with must sees. So far we've been able to catch The Happening; Wall-e; and The Dark Knight. See my quick review for The Happening here {I loved it}. I also loved Wall-e! With two younger siblings it's no surprise that I still love the Disney movies, and this one was no exception. It had an incredible story and great morals. And of course; The Dark Knight. We just saw this movie last weekend {with the rest of the nation} and were beyond satisfied. It was truly incredible! I don't want to give too much away in case you haven't see it, but if you haven't, you should go! Now!





Speaking of Aaron Eckhart {he's in Dark Knight}, I just watched Meet Bill last night with Stacey. It is one of my new favorite movies. It was all ends of the spectrum, but mostly hilarious! You just relate to "Bill" so very much. I just wanted to be his friend! It just released on dvd yesterday so check it out! I want to buy it.






There are several new ones that have released that I haven't even seen yet!! Sex & The City {I am getting desperate to see this one!!}; Hancock; and Wanted among others.


But there are so many that I am looking forward to that haven't released yet. I'm pretty sure I will try to see all of these ones on their opening weekends. Stepbrothers is up first, releasing this weekend, which I am probably most excited about. I can't even begin to explain why, but I'm sure I will have an entire post dedicated to this beauty on Monday. I have been jamming out to "Paper Planes" by M.I.A. all summer long antipating Pineapple Express. I LOVE Seth Rogen, James Franco and their whole crew. It looks amazing. If you know me at all, you know that I am a die hard Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants fan! The sequel looks incredible and I tear up just watching the previews!! Can't wait!! And the The Rocker is pretty much summed up with one person; Rainn Wilson: the only reason I want to see this movie. HaHa. And it looks pretty funny too! Burn After Reading is another funny one that I can't wait to see! I have probably watched the trailor for it at least 20 times. :)

So there you have it. I am a movie freak. What have you seen this summer? Likes; dislikes?

happy things.

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

I haven't had to try this hard to be happy for quite some time. But I just can't tell you enough how much I hate being sad. While I know that there is nothing that can replace this sadness right now- I am really trying to focus on the positive things in my life today....


01. the plane tickets that we just booked for our trip here:



02. my amazing husband. he just called me and he was in old navy? {very weird.} he was trying to be sweet and stop in today and pick up the dress from there that I have been wanting. {!} he calls because he was overwhelmed with the choices once he was there and wanted to make sure he was getting the right thing; so here I am on the phone while he's talking to the sales girl making sure he's got the right thing... "suspended halter dress..... yep, with the bow on the front.... navy blue.... yep, yep, that much..." Honestly, the fact alone that he was sweet enough to remember this dress that I mentioned to him once about 2 weeks ago was sweet enough, but hearing him relaying info like bows and halters to the sales girl just made my heart melt. How in the heck did I get this lucky??





I also don't think I ever mentioned that on Friday night when we returned home {after this entire 5 hour ordeal with my runaway sister} he had two rose bushes that he picked up for me sitting inside-- I guess I had a bad day on Thursday, which I didn't even remember at that point!-- and he was trying to cheer me up- talk about good timing! And also the fact that he took another rose bush over to my aunt and uncle earlier that day who are going through a heck of tough time right now too. Isn't he just a peach? He makes all of the difficult things in my life so much easier. I don't know what I would do without him... but I could go on all day about this boy. :)

03. that Stacey stayed calm enough during our "scare" Friday night to remember more of Hollie's friends than I did.

04. my new gym membership; including one month free!

05. having great friends. all of them have been there for us through all of this and they are just truly amazing; I am so glad to have each and every one of them.

06. that Kathy also asked me to be in their wedding over the weekend; and what we were doing the moment that she asked me.

07. and that Aaron said, "well if she didn't ask you to be a bridesmaid, you would have just been a groomsman!" :)

08. that this movie comes out this weekend.

09. thinking about the top tier of our wedding cake, frozen in a tupperware container in my parents freezer right now-- and that we get to break into it soon.

10. that we are going to see seether live this weekend.

in my bag.

Artsyville blogged this earlier this week and I think it's a good cheer-me-up right now. I'm always getting comments on my huge bags; so for all of who ever wondered what the heck is in there....

This is the bag I'm carrying today:




sunglasses.
wallet from my mom for Christmas.
notes that I jotted down from Hollie's friend when trying to find her {I seem to want to keep them as a reminder of that feeling. Why?}
airline tickets that I printed off yesterday for florida.
ae & macy's coupons.
paint swatches from lowes.
checkbook.
tampons.
sand volleyball schedule.
calendar.
iPod.
cheese & peanut butter crackers.
bullie pouch filled with coins & cards.
bare minerals on the go kit.
lip gloss.
hairties.
keys.
earrings from last weekend.
jumpdrive.
work access card & keys.
hyvee receipts.
notebook filled with all my lists.
this polish that i just got.
iTunes pick of the week card from starbucks {priscilla ahn- dream.}
cell phone.
chapstick.
cell phone charger.

Thanks artsyville for keeping my mind entertained for a while.

a {single} day.



This print via artsyville speaks volumes about my world right now.
Thank you all so much for your kind words and thoughts.
It means so much to me.
There is really no update... my grandma is the same.
We all feel horrible just sitting around and doing nothing.
It is very hard.
And I still haven't talked to my sister.
I hate being sad.
I hope next week is better.

the negative.

Monday, July 21, 2008

As much as I try to see the positive side in all aspects in my life; there are times that is just so hard to do. This weekend tested us and all of our family tremendously. On Friday afternoon, we realized that my 16-year-old sister was gone. We had no idea what was going on. She was not at home, phones were off the hook, her cell phone was there, but some of her clothes & her purse was gone. Did someone take her? Did she runaway? There had been no arguments in the house and she is a generally-happy person. We all lost it. Brian and I frantically called all of her friends for any information. My parents went to the police immediately and visited her best friend's house to talk to her mother, etc. We were getting nowhere and panicking fast. Finally, we caught a break and one of her friends boyfriend's called me back. He said he knew of a bandhouse that they all hung out at and gave me directions. I called my parents and they told the police the name of the band and I stopped down and got my Dad and we headed there..... {keep in mind my parents had no idea she had ever been to a "bandhouse."}

When we pulled up there was cop car outside already. We knocked on the door, some kid answered and said yes, Hollie is upstairs with the police officer; she is coming down. It was such instant relief that she was alive and okay after 4 and a half hours of sheer panic, driving around anywhere I could think to look; my eyes were so puffy I could barely see. But after the realization hit me that she left home on purpose without telling anyone, I was furious. How could she do this to us?? How could she be so selfish?? What the HELL is wrong with her??

I could tell that she was visibly upset when she was 'escorted' to the police squad car. My dad and I met my mom at the police station and waited for her to get there. I had never in been inside the police station that I have lived in my entire life; and here I was- waiting with my parents for my 16-year-old sister. It was sickening. My dad was pissed; my mom was crying. My relationship with her will never be the same. Her excuse was that my parents don't let her do what she wants. {HELLO! You are 16 you SHOULDN'T be able to do whatever you want!} That was me screaming.

I think this is where she is getting this idea; her best friend is Shelby. This entire time that she was missing I was talking to Shelby constantly trying to find out any information- she gave me nothing. My parents went to Shelby's house and talked with her and her mom- got nothing. Want to know who was at the house with Hollie when we got there? SHELBY. Want to know who dropped her off there? SHELBY'S MOM. So basically it comes down to- Hollie saw how Shelby's mother lets her do whatever she wants and thinks that awesome and that my parents should do the same- and when they don't and they are the responsible parents that they should be, she just leaves. And puts us all through this. But it was still 100% her wrongdoing. When will she grow up and realize what she is doing is SO wrong?

The police officer handed me the bag that Hollie had with her. This framed picture was inside that I had given her for Christmas:

Photobucket



My other 10-year-old sister, Kirby, was so devastated that Hollie left, that Brian could barely pick her up off the floor. She asked Hollie "did you leave because you don't want to babysit me anymore?" I could barely handle it. Hollie made us all doubt her and ourselves. Kirby felt like it was her fault at 10 years old and my mom felt like a bad parent. My dad and I both saw it as one thing- Hollie's fault. I understand that we need to talk about what the problems are and work it out, but at that moment, and still right now, I am way to upset to talk logically to anyone about this. I am mad.

After yelling at Hollie for about 15 minutes at the police station- I couldn't handle it anymore. I'm sure that my anger wasn't helping the situation, but that is how I felt and nothing was going to change that for quite some time. I had to leave. She hugged me, crying. Apologized and told me she loved me. I honestly couldn't tell her that I loved her in that moment and gave her nothing in return. I don't know how we will ever be sisters again...

My parents have taken away ALL of her privileges obviously, but it just still doesn't seem like enough. And if she thought her life was so bad before- when she had ipods and cell phones and telelvisions and computers and new clothes and sleepovers.... I wonder how it will be for her now. With none of that. I almost hope that she runs again so that she is forced to go live somewhere else for a while and realize how good she has it. Now I am just being revengeful.

As if this situation weren't entirely horrible on it's own. When Hollie was gone and we were all frantically looking for her, we got a call from my aunt. The doctor has found two masses on my grandma's brain. I will never forget the look of sheer horror and devastation on my mother's face-- her child was gone and her mother is dying; all of this happening within minutes of each other.

My parents went home with Hollie to deal with everything. I was too angry to be anywhere around her. Still visibly upset and not really knowing what to think at this point... Brian and I head over to Aaron and Kathy's house where everyone is waiting for us. We had tickets to see The Dark Knight. We decided that of course we are still going to go; why the hell would we let her ruin anything else for us at that point? The movie was incredibly amazing and deserves its own post later.

The plus side to all of this is that when you deal with a crisis such as this, you realize how incredibly amazing your friends and family are. I knew that we were lucky, but damn; we are so blessed to have each and every one of them in our lives. The next day we had plans to go camping at a lake as I posted about on Friday, but with everything that was going on {and the weather predictions on top of it} we decided to cancel. We did however spend an awesome Saturday afternoon and evening with everyone swimming in a kick-ass pool, drinking Coronas, grilling out, and having a blast. It was such a great time. But late in the night my mom called; the results from my grandma's CT were finally back {we had been waiting all day} and it is cancer.

First thing Sunday morning we all headed to the hospital. {This entailed an hour and a half drive with Hollie; we didn't even exchange a glance.} By the time we got there, the doctor had informed us that the cancer was also in the stem of her brain and her kidneys. How could this happen so fast? Insert a ton of more crying here. I don't think I've cried so much before. We spent the whole day there; with about 40 other people from the family; just being with her and being together. We called in the priest and prayed her last rites together; she woke up a bit during this and was dumbfounded to see us all standing there. That moment was magical, she remembered all of us for the first time in days. If that is the last moment that we have with her, I will be grateful for it. They tell us that she will go any day now and that there is nothing we can do. So we are just being with her, but it is hard to feel so helpless. I can't imagine what it will feel like to be grandparent-less. I miss her already.

My grandma in the middle and my mom on the right toasting us at our wedding:

Photobucket



I am searching for the positive in it all. The fact that my grandma is 88 and hasn't been in the hospital for the past 40 years is amazing. Talk about living your life to the fullest! She was so amazing.. she still drove around town, wasn't going to let any of us stop her. I can only hope that my life will be as filled with love and adventure as hers was. I also hope that this experience will wake my sister up a little so that she will realize what living is truly about and how important family is. But I haven't talked to her so I wouldn't know. I need someone outside of our situation to justify how mad I am at her. How would you feel? If you can even imagine the situation how it has been? My thoughts are so jumbled right now.... I apologize for this rambling post- but getting it out feels good. I miss my grandma. I hate my sister. I am sad for my mom. I want this all to go away. How am I suppose to just watch someone that I love die?
And even though I have heard it a million times and again, this song meant so much more to me driving home from the hospital last night.
