Welcome back to California


Hahahah nothing says HELLO like a giant pair of blue balls.... OH JOY... this was one of my favorite places... Northern California in the Redwood forest.... So beautiful...
I've always wanted to visit and see these HUGE trees.... they were lovely... Just what I imagined... overwhelmingly giant and serene . DSC05090


Walking through the forest is sooo refreshing... The air is soooo crisp and cool... It was so nice... different from the hustle and bustle. Its was abnormally quiet too. Not even birds. I kept on taking pictures. This is how it went....
Juan: " ugh why are you taking so many pictures of yourself?"
Me: " Well its so quiet which means the little animals are hiding from something..."
Juan: " What?"
Me: " I am taking all these pictures of me because if a bear mauls me as long as they find my camera they will know how to identify me..."
Juan: " Are you serious?"
Me: " Yup..."



This pic I was like " COME AND GET EM BOYS!!! (talking to the bears of course!) Come to find out I don't even think there are bears there...

Driving through the tree was cool but not THAT cool. I thought it was part of the drive... NO you had to pay some crazy old lady in a little hut $3 CASH.... since apparently they dont want the IRS to know they are charging poor little tourist to drive through their big ass tree.... it was cool though...

SO yeah... that was it... Have you ever been to the redwood forest? if not I suggest you go... its something to see... oh but FYI dont use a TOM TOM because you will get lost on a dirt road/ CLIFF OF DEATH overlooking the ocean for an hour only to run into some Prison that I googled and didnt even show up on the map... To be proceeded by a bitchy GF begging her Boyfriend to drive faster because she was totally freaked out....

A Diamond Is A Girls Best Friend....


So we all know at this point that my boyfriend is in Afghanistan.... I miss him terribly but I have a little bauble that make things not so hard... especially when its blinding me in all its beautiful glory... I told him when he left that girlfriend is going to need a friend.... so thats when Gus came along.... Then I told him that Girlfriend is going to need something to remind me how much he loves me and how waiting for him for 1 whole year is going to be shitty especially since hes going ot miss my b-day and christmas and everything important for that matter.... SO he bought me this AMAZZZZZIIINNNGGG ring I am so in love with it you have no idea. Its just what I wanted.... A vintage inspired promise ring ( yes promise ring... not engagement...) that looks like a flower.... and boy did he deliver... its so sparkly it makes my eyes hurt hahah just kidding not that bad but it is fabulous. Its hard to photograph too because it just looks like a flash rather then diamonds here is the best pic I can find of it while we were on a boat in SF....




Hahah dont you love my ghetto fabulous red nails... I call them my hooker nails... they are great I love them.. I miss Juan... my heart hurts... but my finger and eyes are soooo happy for this wonderfulness.... Hahahah I will be posting the rest of our road trip and then finally strt posting some craft stuff.... since that is what this blog started out as!!! hahahaha
