1. Tabspresso Tabspresso may be one of my favorite website designs. The layers of texture add such depth to the design. The detailed illustrations and immaculate typography creates a flawless experience for the user. My favorite little element though is how a navigation bar at the top of your screen appears as you scroll and of course that is also perfectly executed. Found via Dribbble. 2. Explosions In The Sky Poster and Art Print Here's the first of two videos today

Finally! Finally, after three months since its opening day, I took a ride into the futuristic lands of Star Wars with Star Tours. I loved it! I was never a devoted fan to the original though so I am not the best person to look to for a full review/comparison of the ride. It's definitely a good time and that's the point of the ride, isn't it? Before I share my photos from the trip, I just wanted to let all of you know about this awesome iPhone/Android app that will help you keep track of which destinations you made it to as there are over 50 scenarios for your trip. The app can be found here: Download Disney World iOS App | Download Disneyland iOS App Download Disney World Android App | Download Disneyland Android App But if you don't have an iPhone or Droid, or don't care to download it, you can track your progress online here. And here's a quick run through of the various destinations and variations: The rebel spy beginning will begin with one of these characters Darth Vader Scan droid First planet stop you can visit Hoth (Empire Strikes Back battle) Kashyyyk Tatooine (Pod racing scene) You will receive a hologram message from Princess Leia Yoda Admiral Ackbar Second planet stop

For over a month, I pestered my husband. Well I know I pester him a lot more than that. But for the past month, I specifically pestered him to make me a homemade seafood dinner on my birthday. He flat out refused. To me, him making me seafood—a food group he downright despises—would mean he loves me. He cares for me. His sacrifice of cooking such a food, would mean he unselfishly loves me and would do anything for me. Andy has known since the beginning of our relationship that the way to my heart is through food. I just love food. All food. It's disgusting really. But he learned and memorized—before we had even become official—exactly how I order at every fast food place. A task that only my mother could do. When he first recited to me how I would get a burrito with no tomato, extra sauce, and xyz at Taco Bell and then go on to tell me how I order a burger at In-n-Out and then what I would get at McDonalds, I knew two things: 1, I eat out way to much; and 2, I wanted to spend the rest of my life with someone

1. Chick Chick Club Website Design Modern yet feminine web site design with many detailed design elements. Click the image for more screen shots. Found via the Graphic Exchange. 2. DIY Mercury Glass Lamps I totally want to try this!! Let's go garage sale-ing! Stat! Found via Pinterest. 3. L Train Green A very clever suggestion by Suzanne for next year's ArtPrize in Michigan. 4. Library Embosser This would be #26 on my birthday wish list for sure! Found via Pinterest. 5. Steve Jobs Then and Now While I write this on my MacBook, I have been moved these last couple days by the nation's heartbreak for Steve Jobs. I received the text from Andy yesterday on my iPhone alerting me that he had passed away. He was such an innovator while creating and leading two very different empires: Pixar and Apple. Truly an inspiration for this generation. Found this image on Dribbble but there were so many to choose from including this close second.

I have mentioned time and again that I am in love with the David Crowder Band. Their music moves you into worship and their concerts are a true experience that can only bring you closer to Jesus. Four years ago on my 21st birthday, my new [at that time] husband and I, with some friends, saw David and the boys at the House of Blues in San Diego. I have seen them a few times since, but tonight, again at the HOB in San Diego, is my last David Crowder Band concert. My last. I am warning the world now, I will cry. It may get ugly. My eyes are welling up right now. I am so pathetic. While it may be my last, hopefully you will be moved to get tickets to another one of their shows during their farewell tour, The 7 Tour. Get your tickets here. And tell me all about it when you get back. P.S. If you didn't check out that link, I'll just tell you here that they are playing in Los Angeles tomorrow night. There are still tickets available. Just do it! You'll be glad you did!

I turn 25 in one week from today. In a totally unselfish act of kindness for all my friends and family, here's a list of 25 things I am wishing for my birthday. I did this for all of you. You are so very welcome. 1. C.O. Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine 2. A roll of kraft paper for Christmas gifts 3. Dave's Insanity hot sauce 4. Freshly Bakes Chocoloate Chip Cookies (still warm from baking) 5. David Crowder Band to remain a band forever

Were you watching The Great Food Truck Race? My husband is nothing short of obsessed with the show. So when my friend Brittany posted on Facebook about a food truck meet up in Fullerton, we had to go! Getting there and seeing all those trucks and massive lines was rather overwhelming so here's a quick glimpse into what we had that night so that if you go to the next one, you'll know where to stop (and where not to)! But first, a photo of our drive to Fullerton
