Well hello again!

We are completely moved in now and enjoying our new apartment. The weekend we moved, we also went to 2 Dodgers vs. Cardinals games at Dodger Stadium, lots of fun, even if Cardinals only won 1 of the 2 we went to. Also, we celebrated my birthday, with a great day. First I woke up to a nice yummy breakfast with Scott, then went to Burke Williams Spa with Megan for some massages and Spa Pedicures! VERY nice! In the afternoon, we had some friends come over who Megan and I hadn't seen in 16 years! It was great to see them and Julie too! For dinner, we went with a great group to Dan Tanas and ate some delicious Italian food! Yum. I went and checked out the pool here yesterday with some cool girlfriends, it was very nice! Next up, Scott goes to China, and I go back to MA (and VT!) while he's away. We both leave Tuesday.
Here are some pics of our recent days here...I've been taking some pretty flower pics cause flowers are in FULL bloom here! (We also got a new couch and bed, pics included!)
Enjoy!
Will write more (interesting stuff) soon!

A New Journey...

Hello! My how it's been a long time since I've written, but as hiatus approaches, I figured I would start this thing back up!

Today is April 15th, 2011. Today is also my last day of work before our 2011 hiatus. We completed two pilots this year, "Man Up!" and "Love Lives". We also completed Season 2 of "Cougar Town" and Season 8 of "One Tree Hill". Fun stuff!

Tomorrow, Scott and I move in to our first place together... it's a VERY exciting time for both of us. We've been together for almost 2 years now! My how time flies. I was fortunate to meet Scott's Dad when he came out a few weeks ago and we got to spend a Saturday together. We went to LACMA, ate at 'Father's Office' (the name was fitting!), went down for a stroll of Venice Beach, and then our favorite restaurant 'Cobras and Matadors' for dinner. It was a GREAT day! Here are a couple pics from that day...

We can't get enough of the adorable 1 year old Lily... she started walking on her Birthday, and has started making sounds that kind of sounds like words (we're getting there!). She has made us all so happy with her presence and her delightful energy. Megan is now about 5 1/2 months along on baby #2, and we can't wait to meet him/her mid-summer! Megan, Tony and Lily also recently moved in to a new home about 5 minutes from their old place. It's spacious, and has lots of room to play and hang out. Scott and I love going and spending time with them.
Here is Lily on her favorite thing... her swing :) Also, a video!

So, back to the present... we are moving into our new place tomorrow, a move that started last weekend. We are both so thrilled to live together. Here are some pics of our process so far... Here are pics from our first Uhaul (moving stuff from my place to Scott's) and then Scott's Room with all the clutter! Lastly, pics of the new place without anything in it! We chose 'Caserta' Blue for our accent wall, and it's now painted and ready for us!

More posts to come... VERY soon! Don't worry!

Lots of love to all,
Em

So here we go again....

I've decided to start up my blog again because I have a break from work, and have things to say. Here goes...

Nutritional Fact of the day...
The Double Quarter Pounded w/cheese at McDonalds is 740 calories. SICK.

I have started on a path to wellness that includes the foll
owing:
-daily exercise
-balanced eating
-weekly therapy
I am committed to getting myself well.

Visitors have already started... Amy came last week for a few days, Evyn and Lauren arrived this Saturday night for a fun filled week. Then Natalie arrives on Friday night for a few days
too!

We went horseback riding at Los Angeles Horseback Riding last week, and had a private trail ride for an hour in Topanga Canyon. The pic to the left is the waiting area, that was so quaint and cute! The views were unbelievable and the horses were beautiful and fun to ride (except when Amy's 'Bandit' got a little crazy!).

I am loving living down in Venice. We are on Abbot Kinney Blvd, named after Abbot Kinney who founded Venice in 1905. We've been going for lots of walks and are enjoying exploring the area.

My sister had a gorgeous little girl, Lillian Theresa Fisher
on March 13. She is a month old now, and growing every day. I've been spending as much time with her as I can.

Sunday night...




Good Evening!

So today is the day before the first official full day of my new job.  As I prepare, I am nervous, but very excited to start something new, and learn lots of new things.  This weekend was VERY nice... I don't dare go into any details, afraid I may jinx it...

Good things have been happening, I hope it keeps up...

A new pic, for pic's sake... a sign from a hike I was on the other day!  Luckily I didn't see one!   :)

Enjoy your week!!

Long Run!

 "Long Run" 

So I wrote this song this afternoon... it's not great because it was off the top of my head, with a looped piano piece, and it's really really short (under a min.), and the sound it crappy...but I like it... I think it's catchy... 

What do you think??

May Goodness!

So here I am, in May... It feels like yesterday that I wrote that last entry, but it wasn't... it was OVER a month ago!!

We have had some GREAT visitors, Natalie came for 5 days, Amy came for 5 days... Nick was here for a weekend, and Bob for a couple random nights... lots of good company!

A few TV things to mention:

-Three cheers for 'GLEE' (Fox Fall '09) 
I watched the pilot and then it was shown back on the 19th after American Idol. I LOVE this new show. Again, as I love movies that root for the underdog, this show too wanted the "geeks" to come out on top.  Jane Lynch is an undeniable comedic force in this show, and her witty, stiff one liners are timed perfectly, especially when she says things like "You think this is hard, try living with Hepatitis, that's hard!" to a group of high school cheerleaders.  Lea Mitchell, who plays the lead, Rachel Berry, was incredible.  Not only did her singing blow me away, her humor was timed perfectly, and her quirky confidence is hysterical.  It made me laugh, and I even teared up a little at the end, when each character shined! I am anxious to see more, which is exactly where Fox wanted their Glee viewers to be after the pilot was shown...Well done! 

-'So You Think You Can Dance' is BACK! (Fox Thur. 8 pm)
Love, love, love this show! The beginning of every season is obviously, the auditions, which span out over the first few weeks' 2 hour long episodes.  Now, I am not a dancer myself, (so it's different than how I feel when I watch American Idol) but I appreciate and admire these dancers for their talent, hard work, and proven versatility throughout the seasons.  It's a must watch.  This show also brings in the best, most popular choreographers to train the dancers, and their routines are unforgettable.  Some of the dancers have had NO training and prove to be INCREDIBLE, it's very fun to watch.

... and Music

-First, 2 songs from Glee are available on Apple's itunes!
'Don't Stop Believin' (Yes, the Journey classic!) performed by the show's  main performers is SO SO good!!!

-Lenka (Sony's Epic Records, 2008)
Lenka's debut, self titled album is catchy, fun, and has funky lyrics that are fun to sing along to!  My favorites:  (1. The Show, 2. Bring Me Down and 8. Trouble is a Friend).  Her songs have also recently been featured on a bunch of current, popular television shows! 

Ok... enough for now!

and I'm feeling fine...

It's funny... again writing late night on a Saturday night.

So today was a mix of up and downs, actually this week all together has been rather challenging, but I still was able to get up every day and get through it. It's funny, as hard as this week was, it also included so amazing memories.

Funny how that happens... again, the really good, and the really bad.  So I was told on Wednesday that my job was ending today, Friday. It wasn't a surprise, I just felt fortunate to even have had the experience to begin with, so it's okay.  I had a great time working there, but all good things must come to and end and it is time for me to move on to something else, whether I like it or not. This is what is meant to happen.

I went out tonight with a couple of new friends, Tony and Jake in West Hollywood to a bar, Fiesta Cantina. Delicious Margaritas, and a really fun crowd, mostly gay males.  Going into this I felt nervous, as I have not walked in to a situation like this by myself in my life,  but was excited to see where the night could take me. Men are gorgeous. This whole night made me realize so much about the opposite sex, and gay men. I had so much fun with these 2 men who have been together for 11 years, and got married in the "window" in Cali where gays were able to marry. I want to say it's an amazing thing that are married, but it shouldn't be, they deserve it .  I'm just very sad that all gay couples do not have the same privileges. Rrrrr.... 

Sexuality is funny... I felt closer with these men than I have with many of the woman who I have met in LA. It was funny to me, talking and meshing... it was so much fun, and I felt so unusually comfortable, and confident... and then...

These people showed up RIGHT next to us (on the sidewalk), like 14 of them with a Boom Box BUSTED out in a CRAZY dance routine... to some hysterical song.  I was DYING... absolutely one of the coolest things I have seen in my life. CRAZY costumes and talent, and so unexpected... :)

Balance is so interesting... as much fun as we were having, everyone, individually is living through their own hardships, and it came out so vividly in conversation.  Most including family, which was equally as important to each of us. So scary. So sad... I wish nothing but positive things for their them and their loved ones. 

I went to Britney Spears in concert last night, again me up with Tony and Jake for a drink before, LOVE THEM!  The concert was "amaze-balls!" and I took lots of fun pics... coming soon.

Nuff said... Didn't make enough sense.
