I guess I need to restart the computer for it to work, but this is kind of fun, ya? I really hope you all enjoy deciphering this message.

Uhoh, I restarted the computer and it still doesn't work. what's up with that?

Turns out I needed to turn numlock off. weird. But that means we can play with fun numbers anytime now!

Women's Basketball

Dave ditched me, so I took lots of video to make him jealous. Sorry for my finger at the beginning, I kept cutting it out, but it kept coming back. Weird.

Follow up to our video of the freeway at night, now you can see it during the day (but without an epic soundtrack)(but with our awesome narrations and conversations instead).

Lost! (Season Finale)

Thanks to our friends Matt and Carrie for letting us come watch the season finale of Lost live at heir house, since we don't have a tv. It was a very exciting episode, and I think we all really enjoyed. Don't worry, there aren't any spoilers, this is during one of the commercial breaks partway through. I'm so sad Lost is over now, it was so crazy and wonderful. What will I do with my life now?

Super Costume Sale wonderfulness

Dave and I hit up a costume company's sale today and found lots of treasures (although most of them we didn't buy). I love looking through clothes at DI or goodwill and pulling out all the ridiculous stuff, and this sale served the same purpose. It was fun to go and nice to be able to buy some "new" clothes, even if we did go at 830 in the morning.

California freeway at night with awesome soundtrack

This is our drive home from the temple tonight. The sweet music on the radio makes me feel like this is an epic adventure when I watch this video. So just let the music take you and hopefully this video won't be too boring lol.

Iron Man 2

How does your garden grow?

I'll tell you how my garden grows. Or rather I'll show you:

It grows tomatoes! I was so excited to find this when I went out to water my plants this morning. My first fruit! I was so excited I just had to do a special blog post about it.

Here is a shot of the whole plant. It's getting very large.

I decided to have a little photo shoot of all my plants while I was outside.
This is my fuschia, it's in a hanging pot.

My begonia is just starting to sprout.

My wildflowers are coming along nicely.

My potato is also getting large. I hope it all grows ok since the pot probably isn't big enough for a potato. It grew out my compost dirt, so I had to keep it.

And now there's this little tiny potato growing right next to it. I'm not sure if it is an offshoot of the bigger plant or a whole different plant or what. I don't really know anything about potatoes.

These little guys also sprouted from my compost, but I have no idea what they are. Does anyone know? I'm hoping for strawberries, but I'm pretty sure they're not.

I'm pretty sure this is a green pepper.

I got desperate for pots, so I made this ice cream bucket inot a makeshift pot. All these little sprouts kept showing up in my potato and tomato pots, where there is no room for them. So they all got transfered into the party pail.

And that's my little "pot" garden. I love it so much, I never thought I would like gardening this much. It might be different if I ever have an in ground garden and I have to pull weeds and stuff, but for now, its a great hobby and I literally get to enjoy the fruit of my labors (once that tomato ripens anyway)!

Video games away!

I decided to play a video game tonight, and Kelly decided to film me doing it. +10 to finger dexterity!

Mixology 101

We promised a mixology video last weekend and we felt it is important to live up to our promises, so here you go: Cheers!

For those who also wanted to see yesterday's video here you go: It was being super difficult and not uploading from my phone last night, or this morning, so I transferred it to our computer to upload it tonight after I got home from work.

Mum's Day

Well since I guess I'm a sewer I decided I could be even more house-wifey and make dinner for Kelly. It was a yummy roast. Happy Mothers' Day to everyone.

Dave's a sewer

Dave's project for today was sewing a nice soft case for his phone. What a great husband I married (since he didn't have to ask me to sew something for him). I also pulled out some of my sweet cinematography skills for this.

Pillow Fight!

David often randomly attacks me. This time it was caught on camera.

I'm glad I spent most of this video laying down, what a lazy bum I am.

The Fifth of May

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! I hope you had a great "holiday." It's certainly a holiday down here in SoCal, even if you don't get work off or anything.

Are we done yet?

Sometimes its fun to make things awkward, especially when you're tired and you're trying to make your vlog just a little bit more interesting. But probably I made this one a little more boring; sorry about that. I hope you still enjoy it.

Just another day...

Not a very exciting day down here in So Cal, although the weather did take a warm turn and suddenly everyone was sitting outside not wearing their heavy winter coats (and yes, they do wear heavy winter coats here). That was about the most exciting thing today, hence this super exciting video...

Chupaqueso Delight

So tonight for a treat, we decided to make some Chupaquesos, which have been described as "melted cheese wrapped in fried cheese." As Howard Taylor puts it, "It's called a 'chupaqueso' either because you can suck (chupa) the cheese (queso) out of the middle as you crunch away, or because this cheese (queso) thing you made sucks (chupa)."

Here is a link to the page on which this delightful recipe can be found:

Bike Ride!

Today, since David was finally feeling better and it was a beautiful day outside, we took a bike ride. We live very close to Lake Balboa, which has a really nice bike/walking/running trail. We stopped in the middle of the park next to a little stream, which I enjoyed, but I guess was too crowded for Dave. We rode 5.5 miles, and I think I'm going to feel it tomorrow.
