Life Lately

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Recently my life has been my blog title in a nutshell. There has been so much Daily Chaos that I occasionally feel like my head is in one place and my feet are in another. But, its not a bad thing at all. So lets catch up, grab some coffee and lets have a date!

BIRTHDAY BASH: I'm feeling 22 
 (I know we are going way back). This was the best birthday I have had in a long time. From the time I woke up, to the time I went to bed this day was simply amazing. I had dinner with some of my friends and Megan and Becca surprised me with a birthday crown, balloons. Then unexpectedly Becca, Megan, and Rachael surprised me with the Vice 3 pallet...but there was a slight plot twist after much searching for the Vice 3 Pallet, they couldn't find it. So, Becca used her skills and made me a version out of cardstock, it was magical and to be honest I didn't understand what was going on until after it was explained to me. (I promise I am actually smart sometimes).
 So I gotta just tell the quick story of why I am wearing a bear hat and a birthday crown. When David and I first started dating he told me that people called him bear. So, after months of dating one day I called him bear and then it stuck. After that moment he became my bear. THEN, somehow or another David called me little bear and it stuck. So then we became a bear pack and we are bear and little bear. On my birthday I finished my bear pledge ship and became a real member of the bear clan with my official bear hat. Then I got my birthday girl crown and became princess bear for the night.

Thanks so much to Megan for taking tons of great photos!! They were totally awesome and she is super good with working her camera talents. 


Tomorrowworld was an event that was on my bucket list. I am so happy that David and I got to go and experience the world of tomorrow. You see these videos of the magical place and you think that somehow all of that magic is staged and it's not. You see people dressed in costumes and festival outfits. I always thought that it was going to feel like I was in a whole different world, and I was right. The entire festival was like living in a fantasy land. 

There was a legit volcano at the main stage that blew out fire. When the volcano first erupted everyone got so excited and hyped to see Cash Cash perform! 

So many people at tomorrowworld had flags to fly or totems to hold up during artists sets. I had to make a mental note to work on a bear totem for the next tomorrowworld. 

I attempted to take a panorama photo and over the weekend it improved (this is the best photo I could find) 
Just doing bear things as we raged at main stage. 

And then we found a UNICORN. One of the girls we were camping with went out every single day. This was her day two costume, it obviously was my favorite one that she did because Hi, it was a unicorn. 


It's that time of the year where most all of my Saturday's are spent going to Georgia Tech games or watching Georgia Tech games. It's a great way to spend the first day of the weekend, tons of tailgating and great memories. I also went to the Falcons BEARS game a couple weekends ago and it was a blast. Granted I was a little embarrassed because Chicago fans tend to be very obnoxious compared the nice sportsmanship that the south practices. 


Last week David did his very first stand up comedian act at this local bar called The Laughing Skull. It was a blast to watch him do something he loves and seeing other people appreciate his jokes like I do. 

Anyways, I think I have talked your ear off enough for one day. That's what I've been up to when I am not slaving over school work and my internship. 

I guess I will leave you with one final photo from TomorrowWorld 

What have you been up to friends?

Blogger Men Tell All PT. 2

It's that time again friends! Today is the day where my favorite Bear adventures onto the blog to be featured and have the spotlight on what he want's to let blogland know. We had such a fun time picking out the questions this month with Halloween right around the corner. Becca, Samantha and I got our blogger men ready to interview and if you have any type of a blogger man in your life (best friend, dog, dad, WHOEVER) they can participate as well. 
So, without further ado, its the one, the only, the Bear taking over the blog! 

1. Is Halloween your favorite holiday? What is?
 No, not really. I enjoy it, but not my favorite. I love Christmas because my birthday is two days later, and Thanksgiving because pork is an amazing food and there's always good football. 
Girlfriend Note: But last year we did dress up like characters from Wreck it Ralph together. 

2. What do you plan on dressing up as for Halloween this year?

 I plan on going as a paladin from World of Warcraft. My costume next year is gonna be more exquisite and more nerdy, but I have a blow-up sword and a bathrobe and I'm gonna wear that.
Girlfriend Note: It's really cute, he has a robe that he wears and he looks all official and nerdy. 

3. What is your go-to drink (alcoholic, non-alcoholic)?
White Russians whenever there's milk available, whiskey sours otherwise. Non-alcoholic drinks, I drink drink coke zero with either a dash of Dr. pepper or a dash of lemonade. I love making my own drink combinations!
Girlfriend Note: His drink combinations are amazing. He makes a diet coke with lemonade and he adds just the right amounts of each so its magically delicious. 

4. What's your favorite scary movie? 
Saw. I'm one of those that loves the whole Saw story line, mostly because of the crazy twist that makes you re-watch it, but Saw 1 and Saw 3 are my absolute favorites.
Girlfriend Note: I will watch from under the covers, I don't do scary well. 

5. What is your best Halloween memory? 
 One of my friends, MRob, had his 22nd birthday party on Halloween, and that was a huge deal because the time fell back that night so we got an extra hour of sleep and we went extra hard. I liked that party.
Girlfriend Note: I wish time fell back an extra hour this year so we could still go extra hard with my diet coke and lemon (DD for the win kids!)

I Wanna Be Like Kanye: Bleu Moon Feature

Monday, October 27, 2014

Since it's Monday and I know some of you need a boost to get your Monday going I am going to help you out. So get ready, because this is going to make you pumped and ready to go for the rest of the day. I want to introduce you to a new EDM group, meet Bleu Moon, the dynamic duo of my personal friend Bruce and his partner in crime Christian. David has actually known Bruce for quite some time, they did a lot of swimming together when they were younger and they both love to rage their lives away at Tomorrowworld, I was first introduced to Bleu Moon, while I was at Tomorrowworld. When I found out that I was camping with someone who wanted to produce and make amazing music I got instantly interested and intrigued and I had to listen.

Sure enough I was impressed, and even more intrigued to listen to other songs. If you haven't heard the original song called Kanye by the Chainsmokers you can listen now down below! 
I heard this song and instantly wanted someone to do a good remix of the song, and who better to request a remix from than my very own Bleu Moon friends. I went to Bruce with the idea and told me he'd see what he could do. Though, I have to give credit to David because he also contributed to the remix idea for Kanye. But then, something magical happened, Bruce made a mashup of Kanye and other magicalness! I was so excited I wanted to share it with everyone right away but I had to wait (the downside of being a VIP to a group I guess)! Okay, so I may not be a VIP, but it sounded really cool and it made me feel special.  So, without further ado I have a feeling you want to be like Kanye too so listen to this song and you'll be the king of it always. 

If you enjoyed that song as much as I did you should check out their Soundcloud and go show their Twitter and Facebook some love. They've actually also played at large venues in the Atlanta area like Opera (which is a huge deal ya'll). I'm so happy that there are groups like Bleu Moon who have a passion for making amazing music, and I can't wait for more.

Keep Calm and Carry On
