Beehive Cupcakes!

I love making Beehive Cupcakes.

They are just so darn cute.

“Avocado” green for the leaves. Is it weird that this is my favorite color?

Did I ever tell you that I made a bunch of these for my sisters Winnie-the-Pooh classic-style baby shower?

Well, I did. It was actually really fun!

(except for the cupcake delivery car ride..)


Its like Taylor Swift could be my BFF.

My twin sister and I entered a contest.

You had to make a 30 second video relating to Taylor Swift and submit it to a local country radio station.

They chose their top 10 videos, and ours made the cut!

So now we are scrambling, trying to get the most “likes” on our video by this Friday at 7am.

It’s a lot harder then I thought it would be.

I figured, I have almost 400 facebook friends, so thats almost 400 likes right there, right?

sooooo wrong.

We have almost 200 “likes”.

Our competition?

Up to almost 800.

I have even asked for peoples help on random Taylor Swift youtube videos.

I get frusterated and give up — only to go back online 10 minutes later and try to figure out how the heck I can get more “likes”.

I just cant give up when its such an amazing opportunity!

Check out the video heeeeeere!

(and please promise me you wont laugh. This was made really fast. Plus, the baby is adorable, right?!)

Best Kept Secret…Ssshhh…

Dont tell anyone what I am about to tell you. Because I dont want word to get out.

But I have been seeing movies for free.

Before they have even been released to the theaters.

And noooo I am not illegally downloading poor quality videos off the internet.

Follow these steps and you too can join in on the fun:

1. Have a Gofobo account.

This is the website that enables you to see movies for $0. You can search for screenings happening around you. And if you are lucky they will have an “Open Screening”. Click it & download your passes!

2. Add local radio stations as your friend on Facebook.

They normally dont spam your newsfeed (at least not too badly), plus most of the things they post are contests (so maybe you will end up winning one!). But more importantly they give out Gofobo RSVP Codes for movies. Act quickly and you will score some more movie passes!

3. Don’t show up late.

This one is not really a rule to be able to collect more free screening passes, but to not miss out on them. Make sure you arrive a good hour – hour and a half before the movie starts to be able to get in line. The way these screenings operate is they give out double the passes that the theater has room for. This way they are sure to have a full house.

The first screening I went to, was “Mirror Mirror” with Julia Roberts. I brought some fam and a friend (the first time I did this, I was able to get 4 passes at a time. They now limit it to two, unfortunately..). We got there with a little over an hour to spare – and the line was already huge. But it wasnt anything compared to the SWARM of people that got in line riiiight after us.

We were a part of the last group of 10 that they let in.

They turned away a good 100 people.

One of the more recent screenings was “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” at the Crest Theater in downtown Sac.

I went with the twin.

{Side note: This was the only screening that I wasn’t able to view. And not because there weren’t enough seats – the theater couldn’t make the reel work. It was very sad.}
