Step 2: Chop your ingredients.
Step 3: Blend your juicy ingredients (oranges, kiwi, pineapple, peaches, nectarines, etc).
Step 4: Add your leafy greens (spinach or kale) with your bananas on top. I like to put something heavy on top of my leafy green because it seems like it blends better.
Step 5: Add the rest of your ingredients (apple, berries, etc), blend, and can. Mason jars are awesome. I have been able to store smoothies in mason jars for up to a week at a time. The only reason I haven't stored them longer is because I drink them too quickly!

3. I had a giant pimple on the right side of my chin. When I pointed it out to my photographer she said, "Oh, I thought it was just a mole! I'll photoshop it out." Thank god Kristina Adams is the best person in the world. Seriously. There are so many close ups and you can't even tell!
8. I couldn't really see going down the aisle. My contacts got messed up and I was trying to get my dad to walk slower and all I could focus on was, "That grey blurb up there is Keith," and "I really need to kick my dress out so I don't step on it. Kick, walk. Not cake walk. This is no cake walk. There is no cake. Well, there IS, but not for a while. Kick, walk. Slow down, Dad!!!"
We made it to the end of the aisle and it was wonderful.
I would totally change the flowers, though.d

Lauren and I got to "have coffee" at the cafe from La La Land. Our tour shuttle stopped and our tour guide said if anybody wanted to take a picture to go ahead and get out and get your picture. Well, nobody wanted to be the first ones to take pictures! So Lauren and I were like, "Seriously? Nobody? Fine, please hold the tour for us while we go get stuff to post on Instagram." I've never seen La La Land but I heard some people called "The Academy" thought it was pretty good at a lot of things so that's pretty cool.
We also got to have coffee at Central Perk! Lauren told me ahead of time that we would get to sit on the Friends couch and take pictures and I totally fangirled out. "REALLY?" I repeated about 57 times.
Lauren is the cutest and is way more natural in front of the camera!
We got to go through a huuuuuge warehouse that had a ton of set pieces that the set designers can go through to choose things to use for their shows. This mirror will be on an episode of Scandal! Which episode?! I don't know! Just keep your eyes peeled! Easy!
Then I got to be the President. I think it's an easy job. I mean like, literally anybody can do it.
Something you might not know about me: I'm mildly obsessed with Batman. Just Christian Bale's Batman, though. The Dark Knight is one of my favorite movies ever. I even named my car Bruce Wayne. So when we got to go to the Bat Cave and actually see all the Batmobiles?? I nearly died.
THEN we got to go see things from Harry Potter. I also fan girled out at this part. I actually basically fan girled out during this entire afternoon. I can never thank Lauren enough for suggesting this and making it happen!!
I got sorted by the Sorting Hat. Any guesses which house I was in? I was shocked by the answer. I always felt like a Hufflepuff but I was loudly informed that I'm a Gryffindor. I wouldn't have believed the hat but I heard him telling other people they were in different houses so I guess he doesn't just tell everybody they get to be in Gryffindor. I have to admit, I was kind of sad I wasn't a Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff's don't get enough credit, you know.
And then and then AND THEN YOU GUYS. We got to go into Lorelai and Rory's house! It took everything in my to not start yelling, "WHERE YOU LEAD I WILL FOLLOWWWWW" but I kept it together.
We walked through Lorelai's house and then walked out of... Sookie's house. Hollywood is weird, man. This is also Mona's house from PLL. (I think it's Mona. There were a lot of houses and lots of crossovers so it got kind of confusing.)
There is a replica of whatever that train in Chicago is.
And IDK, just some random corner store thing. Doesn't look familiar at all. Boring. Nothing to see here.
This is the secret bar from season 7 of GG.
This is the town square from GG, PLL, and about 47 million other shows/movies.
We got to ride broomsticks! If we had wanted to spend $50 we could have gotten pictures that showed us flying through Hogwarts but you guys, neither of us are made of Galleons soo...
Then I got to ride Bruce Wayne's motorcycle (batcycle? IDK) and it was one of the most thrilling moments of my life. I got to swerve around trucks and shake my fist at the Joker and have a wind machine making my hair flow in the breeze and just ... I could have done that for a long time.
We ate dinner at Umami which had the best burgers I've ever had like, ever. I don't even know what was on my burger but I probably could have eaten five of them.
Lauren, thank you for being such a great blog friend turned IRL friend! Can't wait 'til next time!

Tonight Keith left for his 3.5 week long trip to China. He's been wanting to go on this trip for several years but then things got in the way (like proposing and getting married and going on a honeymoon), so he's going now. Up until last night I was doing pretty okay with the thought of him being gone for so long. We've been apart before, so this will be fine. I can do it! I can clean the house! And read books! And exercise! And watch Netflix!
But this is almost a full month apart, and it's almost a full month of having limited communication, and when we said goodbye at the airport my "strong and independent woman" facade vanished and I started bawling right by the check in kiosks. We hugged, we kissed, I started to walk away, and then I was like "NOPE" and walked back to him to say goodbye for the second time. Then I repeated this a third time. And I cried, then laughed that I was crying, then cried some more. And then I really walked away. I even did that thing like in movies where you turn and look at each other at just the right moment as you're both walking away... only I couldn't find him at first and I kind of panicked but then OH there he was. And then I tripped walking up the stairs to get in my car.
And then I listened to Ed Sheeran (the best CD ever) all the way home and sang along and also just stared and thought really deep and emotional things. It was kind of just a really emotional and not super great night.
I'm really worried about him over there. I'm worried about the flights, about some of the places they're going, about him getting hurt in some really random way. I'm just worried. And I know worry is useless but I can't help it. Does anybody actually know how not to worry?
So, that's that. In the next 24 days I may have cleaned off our deck. I may have sorted my closet into winter and summer. I may have vacuumed and mopped the floors. I may have bought a dresser for me. I may have thrown things away. OR I may have just eaten bags of Hershey's chocolate eggs and watched a ton of One Tree Hill.
Was this as fun for you as it was for me? Help. Keep me from my sadness.
