More pics from the Mayhem Festival 7/16/10

This was a funny one. I have no idea who this guy is. I was posing for a picture and he ran in yelling "PHOTO BOMB!"

Here's another one of that sick ass sunset

After being bombarded by the fire hose they had on everyone to stop people from starting major Bonfires

Another one with Sarah and Jamie

Having alot of time on my hands lately I've been steadily working my way through the books that I've accumulated over the past few months. I received this one as a late birthday present and hadn't had the opportunity to crack it open yet. Well yesterday I finished reading the Dean Koontz series that I had been working on. After turning the last page I got the feeling that I often get when I finish a good book. It's one of those hard to explain feelings. Its a sense of accomplishment and kind of a sadness all rolled into one. So I finished these books and I spotted this book laying on the floor by my bed. I picked it up as I hopped on my bed intending to read it till I got tired and then take a siesta. Well I should have known better. I spent the next hour and a half reading the story of Blockade Billy. It wasn't quite like the other Stephen King books that I've read (most of them). For one thing it was about 1500 pages shorter then most of his novels. It was more about human nature then about horror. It was about a major league base ball team in New Jersey, the Titans and their catcher, Billy. It was a great story with an unexpected ending. Well after finishing that story and the short story that followed it I flipped through the blank last pages to the back cover. I had asked my guy, who gave me the book, to write something in it before he left to go back home to FL. I wasn't allowed to read it till I finished the book. It was a great end to a great story.

I recently went with my older sister to the Mayhem festival and got to see some amazing bands play. Hatebreed, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God, and Korn were all playing. I had a great time and got to hang with some friends from way back. I finished off the roll of film that I took the concert picks on and got it developed today......jumping in some puddles of the way. Man I LOVE monsoons in Arizona.

Jamie and Sarah hammin for the camera.

This picture just doesn't do justice to the amazing sunset that came up that night

I also found some pics I took with Ben before he left and some pictures of Gizmo that I took to finish the roll.

Ben lookin real cool

Gizmo striking a pose :)

So all in all it was a pretty good day. Temps under 110, puddles to jump in what more could a girl ask for?

Beware the "Marihuana"


I couldn't sleep tonight so I hopped online and started Stumbling and I came across these awesome pictures. These are done with sidewalk chalk or paint and they look so realistic its crazy to think they were just drawn/painted on! Some of them feel like you could just jump right in the picture.

Summertime and the Livins easy

Hmmmm first post....what to put?
Well its definitely been a year for trying new things and meeting new people for me. Some good, some bad but never boring. First time Ive ridden on an airplane, ridden on the back of a motorcycle, had my own apartment, been away from my kids :(, had sushi, snuck in to a movie, raced at high speeds down the loop 101. I've experienced so much this year and my only real regret is that I didnt take more pictures. But I did take some.
My guy, Benji, was out here visiting for what we thought was going to be a quick trip and ended up being a 4 month long adventure. He left this morning to go back to florida, where he lives and I discovered myself sitting here with a little extra time on my hands. I really didn't want to mope and be all "emo" so I decided to make a blog. And here I am.
So before Ben left this morning we took a final pic together. I couldn't help but compare it to the picture we took the night he got here.

I personally like the second picture better :)
