Pentatonix is an accapella group that started out on the show called the sing off.
I had watched them since the very start of the show all the way to them becoming
the winners, and lets just say, I fell in love with their talent to use their voices like that!

Quickly I must add that my boyfriend parked behind their tour bus and as I was waiting for him to 
pay for parking, Kirstie, Mitch, and Scott all came walking out to go into the tour bus,
I was freaking out inside but calmly said hello to them and they said hello back!! 
I know they are just people like me but I still almost passed out from excitement, being a music geek and all.

We waited for a little bit while this other guy was on the stage, waiting for the real show to begin!
When the show started everyone was so excited and had so much fun! They were sooo good! 
I would post videos but they aren't that good of quality, but if they are in your town
(they are starting their 2013 tour) You should definitely check them out!

Pumpkin Carving Time

Jeremy and I did some pumpkin carving last night. It was so much fun, neither of us had done pumpkin carving since we were little so we were a little excited!

Step One: Set up the carving area

Step Two: Cut a hole and gut out the pumpkin

Step Three: Start the carving process

Then wala! They turned out so good, I liked them both and will be set out for all the neighbors to see!!

Happy Halloween!!!

Dolphins Vs. Rams!!!

Dolphins Vs. Rams

On Sunday I got to go to my FIRST NFL GAME EVER!
My moms coworker gave me two free tickets. So off I went with Jeremy Seiden.
Since I had never been to a game I didn't have anything to wear but Jeremy saved the day and was nice and got me a dolphins shirt!

This police car is pink in light of Breast Cancer Awareness

We had tickets right in the end zone which was perfect cause you could see absolutely everything and the big screen was right in front of us, very convenient to be able to watch instant replays and such.

Jeremy and I cheesin it for a photo

This was everyone leaving the stadium. Everyone was hooting and hollering from the excitement of winning!
I thought it was great for my First NFL Game Ever!!

Settlers of Catan!

Settlers of Catan = The new addicting board game!!
If you don't  know of the game you are truly missing out! The goal of the game is to have the most cities roads and settlements ect. in the game, the first person to reach 10 points is the winner.

longest road = 2 points
1 Settlement = 1 point
1 City = 2 points
Biggest Army = 2 points

Basic board

Their is a lot to the game and it does take a little bit to learn, but it is totally worth it. My friends and I play it multiple times a week and we just bought the traders and barbarians expansion

 which is for far more advanced players but it's extremely fun. Since it has become a regular in my life I decided I would tell you guys about it!! Trust me...TRY IT!!

Discovery Museum

Yesterday I got to spend the day with Steven. Getting him out of the house has been a little bit of a challenge since he got 3 new games for his xbox (Just kidding...Kind of lol)

Our first stop was the Discovery Museum of Science!!

I hadn't been there since I was really little and can I say I was just as excited!?
They had many different interactive gadgets to test your strength, smarts, ect. 

We then interrupted our museum walk and went to the imax and watched a movie about the north pole and the struggles of all the animals that live there. It was 3D and pretty interesting.

We then continued our walk through the museum and saw lots of animals and things about weather.

Biggest lobster I had ever seen!!

Steven in the wind tunnel going 91 mph, he even had to grab and hold his hat at one point!!

So I haven't written a blog in a month, I have done plenty...Just didn't have any inspiration to do so! I am now back on track and will try to post more often!
I have started working at TGIF as a waitress and I absolutely love it.
Hmmm recent events...Well nothing really besides work and my friend Sams 25th birthday!!!

This is about as normal of a picture I can ever get Steven to take! This one just makes me laugh.

~Fun in the sun~

some owls at the park
Yesterday was such a fun Sunday! The Original plan was go to the beach and play some volleyball and just hang out, but a huge storm came through so we went bowling instead, what a great idea. 

Sam and I Sharing is caring!!

After bowling we walked outside and their was SUNSHINE!! So we decided to go to a local park and play some volleyball, I have not been so active in a while and it was amazing, we played 3 games of volleyball where our team won 2 of 3 times.   Then someone had a basketball too so we played a game of that to 21 which was super fun.

From left to right:
Jess, Zack, Rob, Sam, Me, Steven (white shirt), Anthony

After that we decided to go home and shower off and meet up for a game of Settlers of Catan...perfect timing too, the weather turned into rain again, thanks weather for staying nice for the 4 hours we played sports!

4th Of July

This 4th of July I got to spend it on the beach!! I didn't take any pictures cause I didn't want my camera/phone around water and sand, but this is kind of what I saw

It was such a crazy experience, I have seen many firework shows but this one was by far the best experience. I say this because the beach I was on did their own firework show but much like this picture, you could see fireworks being set off for miles at all the other big beaches. Match that up with friends and sitting on the beach hearing the ocean waves, I haven't experienced much better!

Patriotic Hat
My Events Were:
 hanging out with a bunch of friends enjoying the 90 degree weather
 playing beach volleyball where I ended up doing some splits on accident!
Playing football on the beach
Swimming in the ocean
watching the fireworks
dancing the night away at a local pub
and just having a great time

Zach and I, he didn't have as cool of a hat as me so he added a frisbee to his attire

Hope  everyone had an amazing 4th and I am grateful for our independence!

My Aunt Linda was in town this past week and I already wrote about the first half of our trip. After Kissimmee, FL We went on a little 3 day Bahamas cruise, where we stayed at the beach all day and enjoyed the beautiful sun!

 View from the Bahama hotel we were at

Another View

In Hollywood, we went on the boardwalk and looked at all the little shops.
In South Beach we went to a place called the Shakin Penguin which was on tv called Hotel Impossible where they got renovated, we then had their signature drink called the Shake your penguin, I wanted to steal the shaker, but I didn't!
Here is just a couple of pictures I took at the beaches
