poison apples

So when Josh isn't home, like today
(at a golf tournament)
I like to entertain myself, preferably by baking yummyness

So, are you sick of apples yet? :)
Here's a new recipe I found and tried out!
Candy apples.
Here's what you need
about 6-8 medium/small Granny Smith apples
(wash with soap, dry completey and insert skewers)


4 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1 1/2 Cups Water

Add all ingreients into medium pan
Stir until consistency of wet sand
Cook on medium/high heat (stirring occasionaly)
Insert candy thermometer and wait until mixture reaches 300*
Remove from heat and let cool for 3 minutes 

After cooled for 3 minutes, add food coloring
(I used black, but red would be great too!)
Also if you can get some food glitter, try adding some into this
I couldn't find any, so I did without :( But it would look great if you used some!

Now dip and twirl your apples into the candied mixture :)
Super Glossy!!!

Place on cooling rack (that is set ontop of cookie sheet to catch any drips) 

Voila Spooky Poisoned Candied Apples


Let cool before eating, maybe stick in the fridge for 15-20 minutes :)
Happy Halloween!


So Josh is going to be a firefighter with me for Halloween
But since we'll be in Vegas for Halloween weekend I'm sure we'll go to a couple Halloween parties
I would die if Josh dressed up as this


Edward.
Josh did dress up as an Edward-esque vampire when we were dating
(the things you do for love right?)
But this is too good.
A popped collar, overly done eyebrows and splotches of glitter?!
I love it!!!
(Click on the picture to enlarge so you can see the glitter. It's great ha)
I'm such a fan of these books, but the movies are nothing great.
this costume is just the best spoof of them!


baking cookies

Josh loves to make cookies.
I think it's his most absolute favorite thing ever!
So when he got home form work, we turned on some Halloween music, and he got baking :)


 Photo Opp :)

ohh yum yum chocolate chips!


Yes, he is quite the character in the kitchen

Josh gets camera happy, like me :)



hahaha

All Done!! Yum :)


a fall kind of day

Yesterday, while my Josh went to his friends house to play some football I invited my friend Melissa over to go look at Halloween costumes with me :) I still can't decide what I want to be, either a Bumble Bee or a Pirate :) I'm leaning more towards a Pirate just becuase were staying at Treasure Island so it just seems to fit :) But anyway, after we looked at Halloween costumes, we went to lunch at Zupas, I love Zupas sooo much!!!! And then we decided to make caramel apples! We went to Walmart to get all the supplies and then came home and got started.








It was so fun to make them!
I can't wait to make more later in October with Josh :)

After making caramel apples, Josh, myself, Melissa, Steve, Karissa, and Dave went to see
The Social Network.
To my suprise it was really good and I love the smart witty humor :)
It's amazing how much the Facebook network is worth.

Anyway after the movie me, Josh and Dave went to Denny's for a late night snack.
It was really fun and a perfect fall-ish day besides the fact that it was super hot outside

Golf.

I forgot how much I love to golf. Saturday night Josh and I went out on the range and hit balls for an hour or too. It was really fun and I for got just how fun it really is, especially when I can hit them! We're thinking about entering a couples golf tourny soon and I'm so excited! Hopefully we can kick butt ;)

Today we went out and played 9 holes with Steve, Karissa and Scott. We just found out Karissa is pregnant a few weeks ago and were so excited for them! She is just a doll! 

It was such a nice night! His friends are so funny and it's hilarious listening to them play golf. They're just goofy :) But it was about 90* out which is perfect to me but then it started to rain a little, but was still really warm out. Perfect! After golf, Josh, Scott, and I went to Texas Roadhouse and had dinner then His friend Daniel met up with us and we went back to the Golf course around 10 or so and just drove around.

There is this really big river that runs through the golf course and we were thinking about going down it on this little tin boat. But we decided not to tonight since we were kinda in nice clothes :) So were gonna do it tomorrow.
I'll make sure to get pictures of the crazy guys and maybe a few girls that actually do it!!!

California 2010



On May 23, 2010 we left for California. It was a 9 hour drive!!! It wasn't that bad, but being in the car that long isnt very fun. We got to my dads house in Orange at about 11:30 pm Cali time :) I love his house, the neighborhood is way cute, he lives a street down from chapman university and the house are called craftman houses, they super cute! Anyway, we pretty much just crashed when we got there. The next morning  we got up and went to breakfast at this little diner down the street. It was really cool being with Josh, my dad, my sister and her husband! The weather was perfect, blue skies and palm trees everywhere :)
                                                                                     
My dad loves to remodel things and work on things, so when we got back to his house he showed what hes planning to do this summer to his backyard. He has dug out a huge hole and is putting in a Koi fish pond and waterfall! It's really cool, he has the hole dug and hil shaped and the pipes already installed for the water. He also has cleared some a grass area to put in some turf for a 3 hole putting green. I'm really excited for him! He really loves doing things like this and hes so good at it. I can't wait to go back and see what it will look like :)
(This is a tree from africa he got.
It has huge thorns on it that
hippos use to scratch their backs)



After breakfast we decided to head down to Disneyland for the day!!! I love disneyland, it was really fun having everyone be there. We only went on a few rides, but it was cool just hanging out :) Disneyland has the most amazing corndogs! I'm saad I didnt get a picture of them, but they are sooo good! But here's a few pics from Disneyland that day :) 



Tuedsay, me and josh went to disneyland for about 2 hours, just walked around and went on one ride. Then we went to the angels game!
Space Mountain Broke down while we were on it :(

The angels game was awesome! The played the Blue Jays and they Won!
It got pretty cold though, so we got the cutest angels blanket!





On Wednesday, we walked around newport beach and went shopping! It was really fun! We went to lunch at Duke's. They have the yummiest Calamari!!

That night we went to The Improv comedy club! It was sooo funny! I've never been to a comedy club before and it was good :) Way funny, there were 4 comedians and they were all way funny!
Waiting in line to be seated :)
My sister and her husband with me and josh :)
My dad was so happy! haha

On Thursday morning me and Josh got up early to go to disneyland :)

We got this book called the Hidden Mickeys. There are hidden mickeys all around in disneyland, it was a fun hunt to try and find them :)
Josh is so silly :)
We were sad that Mickey was so short :(
Haha on Space Mountain, super fun!


Thursday night ( I think it was thursday) we went to a restaurant called Lazy Dogs and watched the lakers game! It was really fun and such a good game! I got yelled at and was told to go home by some drunk guy because I was cheering for the Suns haha, oh well, it was fun :)

Friday me and Josh headed down the beach to get some sun :)

That night we went back to my dads and got ready to go watch the fireworks at Disneyland :)
