@Petersen_Museum #MustDo

The doors are shutting for a little over a year and I know you’ll be thanking me for reminding you to visit one of my favorite museums in Los Angeles.

If you haven’t been, it’s a #MUSTDO item on your list of #TODOs in LA.

It’s a great place for families and even if you don’t children. I personally don’t like the renderings of the new design but I can see why they would want something flashy. The museum being located on a busy intersection (Fairfax & Wilshire Blvd.), they are sure going to make a statement when it’s all said and done.

Wishing the best to Petersen Museum during their construction and hope it all gets done according to their timeline. I cannot wait to visit once it opens again!

Thank you for your kind gesture.

We decided that a wedding is too much to handle for us right now and all that matters is that we have our family and friends for a celebration in Los Angeles and possibly one in Kansas (much smaller) for his family and their friends.

Feasts of Fancy was our ideal spot to get hitched but because of our decision, it is very unfortunate that we won’t be able to taste or experience all that Feasts of Fancy has to offer.

We were really looking forward to it but circumstances change and we’re grateful to have met such an amazing group of people who run an exquisite business.

Many blessings to you, Feasts of Fancy!

Being honest is a crime.

Who can I really talk to about feeling shitty?

I don’t even know if I want to hear the feedback. I may or may not, I won’t know until I hear it.

I don’t want to, to friends, because either I don’t want to burden them of listening to me bitch or I just don’t trust them.

I don’t want to, to Bear Baby, because he’ll want to fix it. But there isn’t anything for him to fix. I mean, I wish there was, really. I don’t like feeling like I’m unsatisfied. Especially because he’s not the problem.

Im happy 1/2 the days out of the week and the other half, I’m beary moody. Beary moody to Bear. :P He may say otherwise in the how many days but something like that.

I could go every other day, consecutive days, every six hours, nobody knows.

I’m most certain it’s because of my professional goals. I want to get to a certain place and I don’t know if I’m making progress because I have no patience. Less patience than a pedophile.

So, we just dropped Tyler off for him to be at his dad’s and driving back in traffic from OC to LA.

I’m changing my tag line to “Being honest is a crime”. Now my social media handle has a meaning.

I was using it because I liked it. Unfortunately that was not my clever idea. Someone else came up with it as an idea in passing and I decided to use it years after it was ever mentioned. I don’t believe that the person keeps tabs but I do believe that they think they should be credited, so thank you BB.

Moving on, VIOLETCRIMES. I commit crimes because I’m too honest. People hate that I’m too honest. Actually, and right. It’s too much for them to handle.

I may be getting a little ahead of myself but I think I’m funny too.

:)

I’m gonna stop now. Feeling better already and not feeling shitty.

The Best! @CoreyHosford

I look like a fat kid who is just about to eat a whole cake but I don’t care!

I had the best time riding along with Corey Hosford during our Drift Ride Along event.

My boss allowed me step away from my duty to take one ride and I was thrilled! Thank you!

I couldn’t contain my excitement and I must say, it was the best experience of my life.

I literally felt like I was in a roller coaster. My tummy turned like I was dropping from a high drop as we turned corners and sped through the track!

Thanks Corey for the ride!

Wedding Shoot @TheLineHotel

Thank you Bonnie Tsang, Jillian, Alice, Kelsey, Moon Canyon and The Line Hotel for having Bear Baby and I be your models for your wedding shoot!

We were chosen amongst hundreds of applications as the model “engaged couple” having their wedding at The Line Hotel.

I had an early am and didn’t get to make it to the office, but this was so worth the unpaid day!

The beautiful JLM dress. On the post it said it was going to be Monique Lhuillier but I really didn’t care! I was most excited about the opportunity and the amazing photos we would have after the fact!

 There were two dresses selected but the photographer chose the one that she thought best suited me.

The view from suite 1122 was amazing! Overlooking north KTOWN and into the Hollywood Hills all the way to the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory.

The dress was huge but the clips worked wonders!

 The rooms inside the hotel were beautiful. The one time I ever stayed was when I was in middle school (I think) and my mom got me a room so I could meet the KPOP stars staying in the hotel. I of course got to meet them and was starstruck and in love for a long time.

The beautiful vintage style engagement ring and wedding band. It was pear, as if I was meant to have a pear shaped ring… :P

#Selfie in the dress. That fire emergency exit sign was a bit irritating. :/

I had to improvise! :)

Then, the day ended and I was sad.

I had to eat something to feel better. So I grabbed a macaroni and cheese pizza from the lobby cafe.

Editorial photos will be published once they’re ready. These were taken from my iPhone 4s & Bear Baby’s iPhone 5.

Here is Bear Baby looking dapper on the bicycle!
