Love Exactly Dream Cast!

To be completely honest, picking the role of Emma and Evan were extremely difficult for me. All I could see is her and her hubby playing the part because of the lengthy discussions we’ve had. As I started reading, I had to tell her, I can’t help but picture this young woman as you! Anyways, here’s the all star cast that I came up for on the main characters.

George Clooney as the dad; Olivia Williams as the mom; Keira Knightly as Emma; Adam Levine as Evan ; Grey Damon as the infamous ex boyfriend!

Soundtrack:

^ I know this is a silly cover, but the song fits the boyfriend & ex parts. Plus this little girl is too adorable!

love exatly

Emma Walker was a writer who’d lost herself to someone else’s anger–who had given up on ever feeling like herself again.
Evan Levesque was a rock-god–the one all the woman wanted, but he’d never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life.
With just one cup of coffee they’ll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan’s fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma’s checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words…they’ll destroy my soul–Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she’s become because of it?

Give it a shot (All the way through)

So I’m inspired by the great Cassie G. and figured I’d do my own Muse Monday, but not on Monday… that’s my day off 😉

So instead, I’m calling it “Give It A Shot”…meaning listen to the whole song! Dare ya! These will be songs that helped me through the rough times, inspired great ideas, or just make me happy! This first one will possibly be the longest, but really, it’s so worth it!

Comfort in your eyes…I thank you my child (old pics)

Image

This, is me, the momma.. 

 

Image

 

This is my darling girl, Alyssa (I call her Lyss, Lyssa Ann) , depending on the urgency of her being in trouble, or not… 🙂

 

Image

 

 

Yeah… She likes to think she owns the place, but ha! I pay the bills here woman! 🙂

 

 

Image

 

Actually, this guy owns the place…

Ok. They both do 🙂 They own every space of my heart.

 

Image

 

Ok, until they punch me out.. That’s totally not fair! Lol

 

Image

 

“Oh no, momma! Are you ok?! ” 

 

 

Image

 

“Yeah, but that was kind of a ‘whammy!’ Ouch”

 

Image

 

“I’m sorry!” ….to be continued!

 

 

Ok, I know that was super cheesy but, I did want to have just a slide show of photos.. I want to eventually get more pics up to catch up til now! 🙂 See us on youtube.com!  www.youtube.com/SweetFVA

 

My Tattoo Blog :)

Just wanted to show off the good, the bad, and the worst of my tattoos. I’m making better decisions as life goes on… I promise! 🙂

ImageThis is the beginning of my cover-up tattoo… It was a Japanese symbol for “riot”…yes in my punk rock days…lol.. It wasn’t even the full symbol. I covered it up with my dedication to my Las Vegas life (card suits)….it still needs some work!

Image

Almost done!

Image

It’s a dark shot! But that’s for 10+ years in Vegas. Where I call my hometown. So many great memories ❤

 

Image

Same day after I got my Vanek/Alyssa tattoo… the loves of my life..my kids… Their names are woven into the branches 🙂

 

Image

My orchids on my calf that I want to add to. You can kind of see the floating hearts on my ankle too. Poorly done, but that wasn’t professional 

 

Image

 

Dedication to my good friend Jayme R. Locascio… Such a sweet guy. He was the one that made me feel like a sweetie because he always called me sweetheart.

 

Image

Red roses behind my ear. Kind of got the design from my grandparent’s bathroom papercups. Lol! I fell in love with it and kept it for years until I actually got the tattoo..

 

 

This is all for now. I have more but I ca’t find the photos. I’ll take the rest later 🙂

 

 

New Haircut

Soooo… I’m still not really sure I like this new do. It gives me such a different look, I don’t even recognize myself! It’s not completely horrible, but it really takes a lot for these dang new bangs to look right all the time. I had to resort to clipping them back with paper clips at work because it was torture while vacuuming and burning up. Anywho… here’s some pics I kind of like and I played around with the colors just for fun. Lol.

Image

Image

ImageHahahah! I had to share this one because of how goofy Alyssa looked. She’s so funny.

Image

Image

So, there it is. Not sure how long this will last. I’m already missing my long bangs. Ehhhhh 😦

My Little Loves <3

I’ve been meaning to post some new photos of my cutie babies. They keep me on my toes, but keep me laughing. I must admit, I haven’t been taking enough photos of them lately, but they’re at that age where they’re tired of it. Booo 😦Image

Excerpt

When he came off the plane he was wearing aviators, a black button-up, dark wash jeans and those Converse shoes that I hated on anyone but him. He lifted his sunglasses and broke into a smile as I ran into his arms. He dropped his bag and spun me around as soon as I was in his arms.

“How did you know?” he asked as he set me on the ground, his hands tangled in my hair.

“You told me what flight you were on.”

He shook his head and held my chin in his hand. “I’ve always wanted to have someone to wait for me—to spin them around and then do this.”

He pulled my chin up and tilted it until our lips touched—soft at first and then the reminder that we hadn’t kissed in two months came over us. The only thing that could pull us apart was the whistle that echoed through the terminal and then the incessant flash of cameras.

“Crap,” Evan hissed, his forehead pressed to mine with his hands on either side of my face so they couldn’t get a good picture of me. “You don’t want them to know who you are yet, do you?”

I shook my head but said with my voice shaking, “I knew the risk.”

He swallowed and then smiled. “Tilt your head down so that your hair covers your face from view.”

I did what he said and then felt his hands slip the glasses over my eyes. As I looked up his cocky half-smile made me laugh.

“They look a hell of a lot hotter on you,” he teased, throwing his duffel bag over his shoulder and wrapping his arm around my waist so that his fingers were in the front pocket of my jeans.

“I don’t think that’s possible,” I replied, breathless from the feel of his touch as my t-shirt rose, exposing the flesh of my hip to his warmth.

“It’s very possible with you,” he whispered into my ear as we made our way past the flashing cameras. “I can’t wait to see the tabloids on this one.”

“It would be much better if we did something dangerous, like locked ourselves in a public restroom.”

He looked down at me through his eyebrows. “Really? That’s not all that clean.”

“I haven’t seen you in two months,” I said, turning and stopping in front of him. “I’ve thought about you every single day. Do you know what that does to a girl? Especially when pictures of you half-naked are strewn across the internet.”

“I see you found those.” His voice was edged with amusement, but his face was red in embarrassment.

I pulled on the collar of his shirt before leaning up on my toes and whispering into his ear, “I need some real ones.”

“What do you need pictures of when I’m here?” he answered, his breath hot on my chin, voice seductive.

“I need you to burn the images into my mind then,” I said before gently biting his ear.

His free hand drifted down the small of my back to my rear pocket. “I thought I already had.”

“Mhmm…I need more.”

“I have to admit I kind of enjoy this.” He smirked down at me. “But teasing me like this is just cruel.”

“Does the rental car have blacked out windows?” I asked over my shoulder as I turned.

I watched his Evan’s Adam’s apple rise and fall. “I sure hope so.”
