Watched this movie on Friday....I thought we were going to watch Indiana Jones. But the hubby decided that he wasn't in the mood to watch Indiana, and bought 2 tickets to Sex in the City. If you are a fan, you'll enjoy it. It's just like watching a marathon of episodes, they stayed true to the "story" of these gals, and they were still fab. I wouldn't mind watching it again. This time, not so close, We were about 5-6 rows from the front, and every single wrinkle was noticeable, and at times, took away from the scene. Anyway, loved it. Put my stamp on it. Every fabulous gal should watch it!!!

when j. and i got engaged, i suggested we do ballroom dancing, just for fun. and surprisingly, j. was totally into it! he went all out and got "special" dancing shoes before we even set foot in our dancing class. near my parents' neighborhood, we always passed by this studio, Ballroom Blitz, and always saw people dancing. j. enrolled us, on the spot. at that time, "dancing with the stars" was becoming more popular. so we watched weekly and took lessons, at the same time.
i stumbled upon this on flickr.com, and thought this was the sweetest thing. it's just these lil' cards that you can either personalize w/ your own text and picture, or choose from many designs. they are these lil' cards, that can be used as cute calling cards for your business, or personal fun notes! they have a whole list of things you can do w/ these "moo" cards. check out their site! i just took a picture of my sample of moo cards today (see above!)
we plan to use them as part of our thank you package w/ maybe their best shots on the cards. it also has this cute keychain holder. too adorable!

i can't believe it was cloudy and drizzly the whole memorial weekend. just as well, i needed to hibernate for the weekend. got a lot of sleep. the next weekends will be very busy with shoots galore.
i took this picture from my parents' house, in between drizzles. we needed the rain, here in so.cal. especially with the summer coming up.
at least we gave our brand new air conditioner a break. my goal for the summer is to lay out at the pool during the day and crank that baby up at night. woo hoo!!!

are you the type of person that loves to rave about a new place or event you went to? are you the type of person that emails everyone the latest, and greatest sushi or burger you've had? or your newest favorite neighborhood store? yelp is for you!!

i sooooo want to go on vacation. our favorite spot is kaua'i. i could go there every year. it is truly a sanctuary for us. it's been 2 years since we visited. we went there for the first time, for my birthday. the best vacation ever. i took the best pictures there! and that was with my point and shoot.
these necklaces, made from kukui nuts, always remind us of our time there.
hopefully for our 2 year anniversary we can take a trip there. i'm ready to take more pictures with my underwater camera (oooo, i have to show you some of my best shots from our honeymoon, that i took from that trip...i love those pics) AND my new camera (hmmmm...not sure if i want sand on my new D200).
hopefully we can still go on vacation with this recession. i'm counting on it.

no...popo is fixed. no babies for popo....BUT his mother is pregnant, again. and due any time now. we have an opportunity to have the pick of the litter, and i so want another baby puppy. popo was soooo cute, and once the puppy grows up, popo and the pup can be companions. AND they'll really be family, brothers (i want a male).
ok, i admit. i love a party. i grew up partying. my family, as with most ethnic families, growing up, there was always a good excuse for a party. i have a big family, as well as extended family. so everyone's birthdays, and graduations were celebrated. and there was no fancy-shmancy receptions or extravaganzas. usually house parties, with not enough places to sit, children running around, parents playing cards, my father and buddies jamming (playing music), and always plenty of food to go around.
i took this pic at a chinese restaurant on mother's day. j. and i were picking up food for my mom's dinner, and this line up of o.j. caught my eye. i snapped a pic really quick, while the ladies were packing our order.
today i received word from an online news website that they wanted to use my pic for an article!!! cool, huh?
check it out! (if it's not posted on the page, select the slideshow, and you'll see it there!)

here is denise and eric. i took their portrait about 5 months ago. they are high school sweethearts, and shortly after graduation, got married, before eric went into the service. so when they asked if i could do their first formal portraits since they got married, i was honored.
