Well this is one of my favorites from my very first photos with my new Nikon D40 "Niko". This is an awesome photo of my new cat "Frankie" named after Frank Sinatra for... his amazing blue eyes. I'm so happy to finally explain how great his eyes are and be able to really show it. At first he would look at me. He just likes to mark me with his fur and never looks up. Then he just decided to pose. So I started clicking away!
More to come.

Okay my friends! I'm back and I've got my "review" of what was pretty much the most amazing evening of my world! July 27 is gonna be tough to beat for me! I'm gonna try to not spill my guts into writing a novel to save all of you.
Details of the whole day (with pics) are at: www.bestsoylatte.blogspot.com
Adding details to last night's blog of my meet & greet with John:So according to what I've read so far I we (Gina and I) met April (also from the fan club) and her friend... April you are a very lucky girl with the phone call/Dad situation. We were gabbing away and I look up and see John walking down the ramp and I hit Gina and I probably said "You guys shut up he's coming!"He came out and L83 had priority duh! Laren was so cute (love her! so i got a pic with her... I'll post later) So he starts greeting and all I can do is smile. He got to Gina before me and sheesh, hes fast at doing this sign/hello/take a pic thing. So my turn... I go to him saying "hiiii" (like aww old friend! its been too long!) PS. I love the way he looks you in the eyes so serious and happy and ...okay I'll stop.I do this while hugging him and all I remember about the hug is his ear being really cold LOL! But he felt so soft against me. I was in pure comfort. Then I said softly to him "I wanna take the picture on this side of you cus I want the tattoo in it" he said "Oh okay" (you can tell who wears the pants in this relationship *wink*) Then as if we were best of friends/or husband and wife (lol) I said: Okay now, I'm gonna frame one so which one do you like better? (talking about my program that I got from lauren or the where the light is lining book). This is when we got real close and put our heads together to "examine" the choices. So he said "Uhhh lets do this one cus its a better picture" I said "Okay" so he did the your name? spell? thing and I said "Tiffany with a y... yep just like that" and then he finished and I said "Thank you dahling!" (thinking geesh im brave!... and such a flirt!) So below is the signature. I love the heart!
and John and I. note: Anne (also from the fan club)... I thought of you like I knew I would and I thought "Oh boyyy their gonna love this one! Cus we seemed so relaxed by then that we just kinda squeezed each other and I layed my head on his chest just laughing to myself as I thought of you guys!
That's all I got for now.
It was (and I'll quote John here) The BEST SHOW EVER! ... we really were spoiled for being his "home" show. Lots of celebs on the side of the stage. Pete Wents, Ash Simpson, Jen and etc.
Okay friends... be nice with the comments!

while we wait for all the cars to get out of the parking lot... ill post a "sum-it-all-up" short blog... first off: john is thee most adorable, sweet heart ever. meeting him and seeing that he was as great as i thought he was (as a person) just made my world. i honestly didnt need anything else added to my day because i was content with his amazing manner. if that makes sense. uhmm so with that said... meeting him was lovely!
my short version (detailed version later): he came out and l83 had priority duh! laren was so cute (love her! so i got a pic with her) so he starts greeting and all i can do is smile. he got to gina before me and sheesh, hes fast at doing this. so my turn... i go to him saying "hiiii" (like aww old friend its been too long) i do this while hugging him and all i remember about the hug is his ear being really cold LOL! then i said " i wanna take the picture on this side of you cus i want the tattoo in it" he said "okay" (you can tell who wears the pants in this relationship *wink*) and then as if we were best of friends/or husband and wife (lol) i said: okay now im gonna frame one so which one do you like better (talking about my program that i got from lauren or the where the light is lining book) so he said: uhhh lets do this one cus its a better picture. so he did the: your name? spell? thing and i said "tiffany with a y" and then he finished and i said "thank you dahling!" (thinking geesh im brave!) so the above pic is the final.
I will try my very best to keep updated notes of my day today here. ***From my cell phone (with pictures)*** I'll be leaving for church soon (when my friends from Big Bear get here). We'll do church (I'll try my best to pay attention) and then after that we'll do brunch. THEN it's off to go see Juan!
Our meet & greet is scheduled for 6:50pm.... and I thought: hmmm that's funny cus the show starts at 7... :-\
Anyways... I'm not complaining cus I'll be with Johnny (:
So I'm down to 2 outfits... I still havent made a final decision but I think I know what I'm gonna pick. I'm gonna be simple and cute instead of funky/cute. But those of you that know me know that I really want to do funky/cute... I'm just afraid that "strangers" won't be able to handle it and I'll be un-comf the whole day. BUT that's a-whole-nother story in my mind to get into to.
Okay I'm gonna go pack and get the day stared!
Here we come Johnny!

can you believe it??? my own mother was in complete shock! look how beautiful it came out!
~from my cell
Okay so I sent the above from my phone. But what I wanted to talk about was how my sis and I were out after church today and we were talking in the car about how eating out is a really big expense when you look closely at it (or people like her and I who eat out all the time) and I just got the big idea to just start learning to cook my own meals and make meals that I could take as my "lunch" or "dinner" or whatever so I don't go looking for the closest el pollo loco.
Sooo I decided to make this easy recipe that my good friend Candace shared with me probably over a year ago and it's been on my fridge since then and I finally got the guts to make an attempt to cook. SHOCKER for real!!! *for those of you that know me... you all know that cooking and my name NEVER go in the same sentence... and that's sad, I'll be honest.
So let's see where this little idea goes. Hopefully it will lead to good health and my children (when I have some) won't starve (:
PS. The above photo was taken from my cell phone and the 1st part of this blog was blogged via cell phone which I really need to do more often while I am out. Cus I see stuff and think funny/odd/special things all the time and I really should share! So stay tuned!
BUT what I really wanted to say was that the meal you see above is called: Whole Wheat Rotini with Spinach and Parmesan <--- re-named by me because of the different ingredients I used due to trying to make it more healthy (trying to lose weight for my Juan show coming up this month!!! eeeeeekkkk) and not being able to find Fusilli and Asiago Cheese! (-;
REAL NAME: Fusilli with Spinach and Asiago Cheese (off of foodnetwork.com Episode#EI1017) try it!
Special thanks go to: My sou chef and sister Dani... this totally wouldn't have come out right if you weren't on that spinach girl! You chopped that stuff like a mad black lady!! We did it!! AND my parent's for eating it and enjoying it...actually (:
