The Weekend: Lots of Things!

photo 4

It’s been two weeks since we’ve had one of these posts and so much has happened! I didn’t have time to post last weekend’s highlights so I’m combining it with this lovely holiday weekend. Some of my best girl friends from Seattle flew to see Ash and I for the long weekend and like any vacation we jam packed our days from start to finish. It’s interesting how the trips you plan when you are out of college and “more of an adult” shift from the vacation breaks you had when you were in school. Instead of traveling to cities where you plan on drinking constantly and sleeping in because of your hangovers, you’re waking up at 8:00 and getting your morning started. (Sort of like how the five of us would any day!) Instead of drinking, we put our money towards amazing meals and instead of going to bars, we went wine tasting in Sonoma. So there.

- also don’t those fireworks look great?! They went off Wednesday evening in San Francisco after the Giant’s game and they looked a whole lot better than the ones we tried to watch on 4th of July from this view.

I did my first hike with some co-workers at Rancho San Antonio Open Space last weekend! There really are some gorgeous views here in the Bay Area.

On Sunday afternoon, we caught a free concert from Yuna and Allen Stone at Stern Grove. We had never been over to this area before, but we loved how it was just kind of hidden in this park and large enough to hold a concert and fit THIS many people. It’s definitely one of the prettiest venues I’ve ever been to.

We’ve been watching episodes of this on Netflix.

We got athletic and competitive during our pre 4th of July company picnic with Bubble Soccer.

Happy 4th from the Seattle gang!

Visiting our Ash at Stanford

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Finding Carter

I really don’t need to be adding any more shows to watch in addition to all the TV shows that I watch each night, but this one looked good! It’s surprising, right? Because it’s MTV. Actually the real reason I’m watching this series is because the main character “Carter” is played by Kathryn Prescott who was probably one of my favorite characters in Skins. I have no doubts that she will do an amazing job in this series as well.

Ice Cube Says Nice Things Angrily

Did anyone catch 22 Jump Street this weekend? I watched it last night and absolutely loved it. Ice Cube was too good.

Jonah Hill Addresses and Apologizes for His Remarks on The Tonight Show

Wow. I literally just watched this 5 minutes ago. I had heard about this controversy all day today and I feel like I heard that he had apologized with a statement, but I almost expected that he would do it again when he had the chance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight and he did.

Typically when a celebrity apologizes for something they’ve done like say…Chris Brown or Justin Bieber, we kind of just shake it off because well, don’t they always make these kind of mistakes? Haven’t we heard the same thing over and over again?

Jonah Hill is such a powerful actor. He’s someone to be looked up to and I really appreciate how he took the time to admit that he had done wrong. His apology was sincere in a way that I haven’t seen before and more importantly he accepted responsibility. If there’s anything I hate more it’s that celebrities make excuses in their apologies or they think something was taken out of context and throw out the “Hey! This isn’t how I actually feel. I have friends that are x, y, or z.”

The worst. Excuse. Ever.

Jonah Hill isn’t going to have this swept under the rug and he shouldn’t, but he did something better tonight than most.

Ryan Lewis Asking People If They Know Who He Is

The whole revealing to people “I’m Ryan Lewis!” was so awkward to me. This segment is kind of similar to the one Fallon did with Robinson Cano and I think I liked that one better.

I found this segment to be really annoying though – am I alone in this?

C. Lowe by Scarlet & Gold

I am someone that has somewhat of an unhealthy obsession with greeting cards. You won’t find me hoarding them in my home, but I could be posted up in a bookstore, a gift shop, or a boutique just gazing through all of them for longer than the average human. If I were an adult collecting things, greeting cards would probably be it. One of my favorite Bachelor winners Catherine Lowe recently unveiled her new line C. Lowe for Scarlet and Gold including “Lowe Notes” and placemats. I find these to be quite cheeky. And now I want to send them to all my frands! To view all of the products, click here to visit Scarlet & Gold’s online shop.

Song of the Day

D’Angelo – Untitled (How Does It Feel)

I completely forgot how much I loved this song when I was younger until I was reminded of it watching Usher and Adam Levine cover it on The Voice last night. Throwback. Too good. What? I’m ded.

Shailene Woodley’s Possessions Kept In A Carry-On Suitcase

I feel kind of bad that I used to dislike Shailene’s character in that ABC Family series, but I’ve been thoroughly impressed by her work in films. She blew me away in Divergent. I actually find her herself to be quite fascinating though. I’ve watched a few interviews with her and from what I learned, she’s really granola. She doesn’t take too many showers and she uses very organic products or sometimes nothing at all. The most recent thing I learned about her though is that she keeps all of her belongings with her in carry-on suitcase. Apparently that’s all she needs. It’s not something that most humans can do, but the fact that she can is pretty cool.

How To Get Away With Murder

I watched the trailer for this new show on ABC this morning and boy was it steamy! It immediately grabbed my attention and sucked me in. Looks like I have another show to add to my lineup.

ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat

I learned yesterday that ABC added a new show to their lineup that features a Taiwanese family living in America. I’m actually pretty interested in seeing how this turns out because I’ve never watched an Asian-American sitcom before. There will definitely be things that I can relate to and will find in general humorous. With that said, I do have some concerns. I hope that the show will have a good balance of being not only funny, but also not cheesy and stereotypical. After watching the trailer, I have decided that I didn’t enjoy the portrayal of the mother. She just doesn’t seem like she’d be a likeable character and is fitting into every stereotype I’ve ever heard of Asian mothers. It’s just a trailer though so I’m not going to get my hopes up quite yet.

FOX Picks Up “Gotham”

Wow, I am VERY excited by this news. I’ve always enjoyed Batman and the many times that they have redone it even that really hip cartoon version that aired on Saturday mornings called Batman Beyond. I feel like I’ve seen every version since I’ve been alive at least.

One reason that I am excited about this series is because Ryan Atwood IS Jim Gordon. WHAT? Shocker. Plot twist. It’s such a great casting and I can’t wait to see where this goes. I’m also pretty happy that Ben McKenzie has found another thing to jump into after Southland. What do you guys think of the trailer? Would you watch it?
