Mannassas Virginia

My work sent me back east to Mannassas to do a Cricut Demo at an AC MOORE store back there. It was so much fun! I have never been east of Colorado and I have never flown on a plane before so this was quite and exciteing event for me. It was an experience I will never forget. I loved flying and enjoyed the traveling alot. I landed in Mannassas where they had a limo service waiting to take me to my hotel. I really traveled in style and loved every minute of it! Kayla flew out and met me there. We went to dinner and played at the hotel friday night. Then I went and did my Demo on Saturday and met a lady named Sheila who was Demoing with me. She was fabulous!!
After the Demo we went to the Mannassas Mall and did a little shopping and then we went to dinner and back to the hotel! Sunday morning we woke up EARLY and we checked out of the Hotel and drove into Washington DC where we took a 3 hour tour of the City and got to see a ton of amazing places....

This was the Washington Monument. It was one of the first things we saw as we drove into town.The capital building was beautiful and it was soooo big!!

I also loved the Lincoln Memorial. It was amazing!
I would LOVE to live in a house like this. The streets were amazing!

I also got to see the white house. I didnt think I would ever get the chance to see it and I did and I loved it! It was really cool!

The rest of the pictures are just of me and me and kayla chillin in DC. I was glad she came with me so I could spend the weekend with her! We had a lot of fun!

I loved every second of it! I will get to be going back this next weekend and I am very excited!

Other Fun Stuff....

What else have I been up to? Well most of you probably dont care but since this is kind of a journal to me, well it is better than nothing and I am way to tired in the wee hours of the morning that I now call bedtime to actually write in a journal, so I use this in a way as a
journal-ish thing! LOL! Anyways, We went to temple square for FHE and it was so much fun, we watched the new Joseph Smith movie (which isnt new, but I had not seen it) and I LOVED it! It was so good, I cried through the whole thing, the poor guy next to me kept asking me if I was ok or if I needed anything, I think it was making him uncomfortable. We walked around and visited the reflection pool and it was gorgeous and luckily on the night we went it was not that cold. It was perfect!
We have also been PARTYING it up! Our friend Lauren had a birthday and I LOVE birthdays, we really use any excuse we can to stay up all night and party! It was a blast! All though I will admit that even though we threw the confetti outside, somehow the little peices found their way into my bra and set up camp with out my knowledge, so that night when I went to change it was like a celebration all over agian as they all came flying out.... now my room is covered and they really dont like to vacuum up nicley! LOL!
Another fun night was when we went to a BYU basketball game and we tried all night to get up on the big screen and finally we made it! We were up Rocking the chicken dance and we got on the big screen it was so fun! Also, pretty sure Cosmo was hitting on us, I just hope it was a guy in there (you never can be sure) It was a really fun night!
That is pretty much what I have been doing lately, I work then play and then dont sleep then I play some more, then I usually work and play after that!!! LOL! One of these days I am going to go to bed and not wake up for at least 2 days! That would be so nice... but I would miss out on so much fun!

Allred Concert

I am so a week late writing about this which makes me super sad cause it was the highlight of my month so far!!! I have just been insanly busy at work and play that I have not posted it yet.

Ok so DONT JUDGE ME!! I wanted to get a picture with John so bad... and my friend introduced me to him and I shook his hand and I visited with him and everything but I was not feeling that cute and I felt stupid cause the rest of the group we went with knew him already so I felt like if I asked for a picture that I would be the stupid fan! So I pretended to be cool and didnt get one, thinking I would get one when I went to his exclusive concert on the 20th. BUT I have a business trip on the 20th and I will be out of town and will miss the concert so I may have missed my chance to get my pic taken with the man I love... big time frowny face!!!!

However, that sad news aside, it was a great concert we were FRONT ROW and it was like he was singing right to me! haha I loved it! He truly is AMAZING!!!!

This second picture is from his encore. When came out they turned out the lights and he had a spotlight on him and asked everybody to sit down and he sat on the end of the stage and we had a sing-a-long for his encore... It was so cool! LOVE HIM!

My new Collection

so.... I decided that I am starting a new collection, really it is cause I have these and I want to share them so I can brag a little. lol! I have had the oppurtunity to meet and get a picture with some fabulous famous people in the last year and when I say some... I mean two haha and soon to be three hopefully! But I think it is super cool and wanted to share!

This first one I took about a year and a half ago at Warp Tour, it is with Matt Young he is the lead singer for Amber Pacific! It was super cool to meet him, out of all the bands we heard that day his was by far my favorite!
This next one I am WAY more excited about, my friend Brooke grew up with Cove. He is the lead singer for the band Saosin and I love them too. They are amazing. We went to his concert a few weeks ago and it was amazing, we were on the "guest list" so we got to walk up to the bouncer and he let us in (super cool!!!) then after the concert Cove came outside to meet up with us and we hung out with him for about 20 minutes. He was so nice and we got to get a picture with him....And Last but CERTAINLY not least.... I get to meet Allred on thursday and I am hoping I will have a picture with him to post soon. I dont know if you guys know him but I blogged about him a while back... he is sooo pretty! I heart him!! He was the one I was in love with and was planning on stalking... but it is all about making friends with the right people. One of my friends knows him and is taking me to his concert thursday and he is going to let me meet him after... SO EXCITED!! So be looking forward to that soon! LOL!

Royal Bliss Concert

I went to the Royal Bliss concert the day before thanksgiving. I have wanted to see them for a year now but they have not been playing in town when I can go. But this time they were and I was stoked. I went with my bff Brooke and a few old friends Jed and Craig. It was a blast. It was at a bar so we were surrounded by drunk people and I dont think I have EVER smelled that bad after I left but it was one of the BEST concerts I have ever been to. I love love love them and loved every minute of the concert!
