.Red White & Blue...& Life Lately.


Early 4th of July morning, I ran into this outfit in my closet. I own plenty of blue pieces but not as much red. I actually love the combo of red & blue so I surprised myself... I didn't have a lot of options.

It has been an eventful week let me tell you. Road trip to Southern Cali, fun at Universal Studios, on the set of "The Price is Right", dinner on the pier of Santa Monica Beach, and the TNT fireworks that lit up our little street on the 4th of July.


Yes we were part of the 300 individuals who actually thought we would get picked as contestants to participate in the famous game show. Did we get picked as contestants?Didn't happen but that's okay. It was nice waiting for 5 hours to be interviewed by the show's producer (i'm being sarcastic..waiting was a total bummer and I do not recommend it). The producer only chose 9 people. So much competion. The show airs on October 21st 2013. Jason and I are sitting in the 3rd row on the far right. Hopefully you'll catch a glimpse of us if you are a Price is Right fanatic.

Universal Studio's was a BLAST! We Walked into the park and decided to watch the "Special Effects" show instead of going on a ride. We sat in the audience with tons of people (300 I assume) grabbing their seat....meanwhile some lady came up to us "Would you two like to participate as Volunteers in this show?" Us on stage in front of these random people? Sure why not! :) They guided us backstage and dressed Jason up in a hideous astronaut costume and me in a white over sized doctor jacket. The host of the show had me follow him on stage (spotlight on me) and sliced my arm with a special effect butcher knife...red corn syrup dripping everywhere. For a second I thought he really sliced my arm! The purpose of Jason's astronaut costume was to have him fly through air..but come to find out at the end of the show, It wasn't Jason they had in the air, it was a stunt man! They tricked me! It was a blast. They gave us "Front of the Line" Passes for participating in the show. Who knew we'd get picked to be a the highlight of the show :) Awesome.

Enjoyed the rest of the Day on amusing rides, Hollywood Universal Tour, and one Mango Margarita

Strolled through "Wisteria Lane" (Set of Desperate Housewives)

Jason was so happy about dressing up in his astronaut costume for that special effects show he wanted to take a photo with the famous astronauts themselves!

Meanwhile the curls in hair became undone thanks to the Rhino squirting water at me during the Jurassic Park ride :( But I was still able to catch a pic with Jimmy Fallon.


Santa Monica Beach. The most relaxing view of my vacation. The smell was Beautiful!

Dinner on the Pier of Santa Monica..Run Forest Run! (Bubba Gumps)

And Ice Cream (Strawberry Cheesecake)


West Hollywood where all the good food is. Found a nice spot on Sunset called "The Griddle Cafe". Famous for their delicious over sized pancakes. Thinking about them makes my mouth melt. Jason & I could not finish the "panni cakes" (what Jason calls them, it's cute). Gigantic! is what I call them.

4th of July Independence Day --->& Our little two year anniversary :)


I hope all you love's had a wonderful 4th of July with spectacular fireworks * * * * *

With Love
