I need to apologize for us not posting in a while, but we've been busy settling into college. However, I think we're coming back BIG because last night I attended a taping of The Buried Life! It was totally spur of the moment. I literally saw a posting on facebook about it and i was then immediately on it to go.
The whole episode is around a list item of Dave's ( one of the members of the show) which was fighting in an Mixed Martial Arts competition. It was just unreal to be able to show up at a random place and be able to see all four of the guys: Ben, Duncan, Jonnie, & Dave. I am a huge fan of their incredible show and I was so happy to be apart of that list item and to be there with them.
I had never seen an MMA fight and much less go to one, so I was a little nervous as to how intense it was going to be. It's definitely for tough guys becuase they punch, kick, spit on each other and basically anything else to win. So when it was Dave's turn to fight, I was nervous for him. He was actually a pretty good fighter, he gave the other guy a run for his money for a long time and he made it to all three rounds. However, Dave unfortunately lost due to an awful injury! He completely dislocated his thumb!! Even though he lost, he did it like a complete champ and I don't think it was a failure at all. He did an awesome job.
Now for the best part: Meeting them!! All of them are the nicest guys in the whole wide world!!! Living in LA I've experienced really snobby "celebrities" and they are quite the opposite. They are so humble and gracious and everything that you want them to be. I can go on and on forever about how great they made me feel! So here goes my picture of the event and of them <3

For this past weekend only, my best friend, the one and only Jacqueline, came back into town for some together time. There's no doubt in my mind that she came to see me :p, but she might have also dropped by to see her family that came all the way from Switzerland. I'm not sure, but regardless we had a little bbq at Jackie's house and ate delicious food, laughed at Swiss jokes and played Beatle's Rock Band for hours. Our friends Nicky and David also hung with us, and it just felt like Jackie had never left. It was a great night.
The next day was all about the shopping! Matthew and Janine (the Swiss cousins) were in search of our great American deals and eternal sale racks. We hit up a great little vintage shop and took them to the infallible mall. They bought tons and tons of clothes! It was spectacular to see. Jackie bought a few things like a beautiful sea green coat and a pair of boots that I might buy myself! I got myself a cute little beret with a black bow.
After the incredible shopping we went to a family party and repeated the fun that we had had the night before. It was a beautiful weekend and I can't wait for Jackie to come back in October.
