It’s only a week into 2012 and I already have had a nice relaxing four day vacation and a New Year’s I will never forget!

On New Year’s I went to Sea of Dreams, with Santigold, Beats Antique, and Aman Tobin! All of my favorite people accompanied me and we had the time of our lives!! It was a night I will never forget! Waking up in SF the next morning was amazing! It was a clear, sunny, beautiful day and we went and got coffee and breakfast at Java Beach and spent the afternoon at the beach! I can’t wait for this year! It will hopefully be a big year with lots of amazing adventures!

Today I just got back from a quick vacation to Soda Springs!  Unfortunately there was absolutely no snow but it was still freezing cold.  We drove to Boontown, NV the first day and went to Cabela’s, the biggest outdoor shop ever! We went shooting and played games and cooked all our meals! It was a nice trip with some great friends!  I wish there was snow though so we could have played in the snow and gone snowboarding!! Hopefully we will get back up there once it snows!

New season of Shameless started tonight! Cant wait for this season it is gonna be great!

I also cannot wait to begin the The Girl Who Played With Fire, I just finished the 1st book and saw the new movie (INSANE)!!! Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, an Xmas gift from my sister is another book i can’t wait to begin!

I think I am going to start a new thing where at the end of every post I list my 5 favorite songs of the week, which will make me post more and listen to more amazing music!

So this week my 5 favs are:

  1. Take Care feat. Rihanna – Drake
  2. Creator – Santigold
  3. The Best Thing I Never Had – Beyonce
  4. Do Ya Thang – Rihanna
  5. Set Fire to the Rain – ADELE

Rain Rain Go Away…. June 7, 2011

Filed under: Books,Food,Movies,Music,My Life,Television — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:20 am

I cannot believe how long it has taken me to update on here! So much has happened in the last 3 months, I literally don’t know here to start. This post might have to come in stages because its going to be a long one. lets start at the very beginning…a very good place to start (haha name that movie)!  At the end of March, I went to VEGAS with Jessica and we had an amazing time! We stayed at the Polo Towers on the strip, right next to Planet Hollywood!  We saw the lions at MGM Grand, the water show at the Bellagio, stayed out till 6am, saw Fergie, and went to the best club (Chateau) and saw Flo Rida perform for freee!  After Vegas we drove all the way back to Santa Barbara, surprised Kyle (AKA got free cupcakes) and then I hung out in Santa Barbara for a few days and got to see old friends and seriously had an amazing, relaxing Spring Break!  April was a crazy school month, started to get “Senioritits” even though I didn’t graduate (got a whole nother year) 😦  ON EASTER SUNDAY, I had to go on a Geology Fieldtrip, which I was pretty pissed about, but it ended up being a lot of fun! We went to Pt. Lobos and spent the whole day in the woods, at the beach, walking around learning about ROCKS.  At the end of the month, I headed down to L.A. for Kyle’s Graduation from Pepperdine! I got lucky and got to stay down there for 5 days, so it was like a mini-vacation!  On Friday I went shopping at the Grove with Kyle’s Fam, saw Rob Lowe and Julia Stiles (LUMEN!!!), saw Kyle get awarded for being awesome in his specialty (Sorry I forget the correct name), watched like 5 movies, saw Kyle Graduate on the windiest day ever, got my computer stolen (yep I know), made a bombbb dinner, and got to relax and hang with my favorite person for 5 whole days!  MAY, ohh the month of May, fun-filled May.  Sister’s and Brother’s b-days, Gigantes Game (Cinco de Mayo), Finals, Celebrating (graduations, friends returning from Europe), Jazz Festival (Sheryl Crow), Movies–Bridesmaids, Pirates (twice), Hangover II, etc.  And now, its only 6 days into June, and it’s already been the craziest month out of them all.  Kyle came to Sonoma before he jetted off to North Carolina for the summer, my Grandparents from New York came to Sonoma for my Brother’s Graduation, my Bro graduated high school, saw X-Men: First Class (BLAHHHH), have eaten some amazing food (Sugo-Petaluma, Old Chicagos-Petaluma, Saddles-Sonoma, Harvest Moon-Sonoma), Gloria Ferrar, being with family and staying up late with friends, all I need is the sun!!!!

Today was non-stop.  Woke up at 6:30 to take Grandparents to the airport.  Got home around 10am, watched an episode of Justified (MUST WATCH SHOW!!! TIMOTHY OLYPHANT!!!!), went to Petaluma with Erin and saw Water for Elephants (SOOO good, read the book too!!), came home and went to Napa with the Sis to go to TARGET!  Got home and went to Haci, and Micheocana with Kris, David, Kels, and Bonnie and watched Duplex! “ohhhh Blueberries….”  Came home to find the Giants game still on, didn’t end till 5 min ago, bottom of the 13th Giants 5 Nationals 4. BOO YAHHH.

Fall is HERE! October 12, 2010

Filed under: Books,Cooking,Movies,Music,My Life,Television — kateliveslaughsloves @ 7:05 am

while driving home tonight, i looked outside my window and saw how windy it was, all the leaves were flailing around and right then i decided that it was finally fall.  During the days, it is still pretty hot, but at night it is perfect, sun setting early, cool breeze and leaves falling on the ground, always lets me know that fall is approaching.

That means its time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Fall Television (Grey’s Anatomy, Weeds, Dexter, and so on), MLB Playoffs (GO GIANTS), baking (and lots of it, especially pumpkin muffins :D), etc etc.  Here is something for the baker in everyone, found at SIGN OF THE BEAR! yaya

Also this month I’ll be attending some amazing concerts, one which already happened at the end of September,

Carrie Underwood!!

This week, I will be going to my second Maroon 5 concert and could not be anymore excited!! I’m going with my friends Erin and Megan and am trying to memorize their entire new album by Friday! Check it out!

Next week, i will be going to the Justin Bieber XBOX 360 LIVE TOUR with my younger sister who is obsessed with him.  But I cannot lie, i definitely have BIEBER FEVER!! bahahaa

my friend shared this link on FB, I though it was hilarious!

I also just bought 3 new books and am soo excited to read them!

1. The Time Traveler’s Wife, one of my favorite books, which I have read 3 or 4 times already and love it more and more each time!

2. True Prep, a book that I read an excerpt from in Vanity Fair, and just had to buy it!

3. L.A. Candy: Sugar and Spice, c’mon every girl needs a trashy novel every once and a while 😉

Cant wait to read these!

i also just saw Life as we Know It, with Josh Duhamel, and Katherine Heigl last night and it was way better than expected! i cried, I laughed, and Heigl plays a baker with her own fine foods store, which I always love! Go see it!

 

That’s all for now, Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moving Forward March 15, 2010

Filed under: Books,Cooking,Movies,My Life — kateliveslaughsloves @ 8:05 am

Now that I am pretty positive that I will be moving home in May, I’m trying to focus on what is most important.  School is my number one priority at the moment and it is actually paying off.  I have been doing well in my classes pulling off A’s and B’s on my tests and only one C so far.

Since I still don’t have a job, it has been hard to make food like I used too.  But because of a few blogs I have been reading pretty regularly lately and http://culinaryescapades.wordpress.com/ and smittenkitchen.com, i want to get back into baking and cooking home cooked meals, even if they are just for me.:)  I’m going to be frugal in my grocery shopping, but still buy things that i can make a few good meals a week with.  And hopefully I can get a job soon!

Only 2 more weeks until Spring Break, I cannot wait!!! My friend Erin is coming to visit and we are gonna hang out in L.A. with Kyle and go clubbing and maybe to LACMA and then I am going to show her around SB for a few days until we drive up north to Sonoma!! I am so excited to go home for a while!! Once Spring break is over only about a month and a half left here until Summer!!

I am really dreaming big this summer and am pretty certain it will be EPIC.  Even though I will most likely be in summer school for the first half, i want to take a trip back east to DC, Boston, and NYC and also visit my friend Rachel in CO, as well as spend time in Sonoma and SF!!  I’m really looking forward to Summer 2010 and being home again!!

xoxo

BTW:

  • Read Lauren Conrad’s second installment of L.A. Candy, Sweet Little Lies! I read it in 2 days and it was devilishly sweet! I loved it!
  • Go see Alice in Wonderland and Remember Me.  Alice is fantastical and lovely and get ready to cry when watching Remember Me (its not about what you think its about).
