Today we filmed at a very pink house, and I mean every sense of the word! When we first pulled up I thought "How cute, its a pink house." but what I didn't anticipate was for the ENTIRE interior to be pink as well! The poor guy we filmed with was probably thinking "Crap, why did I choose today to wear my pink tie?" Oh my gosh, It was just so funny.
We had an awesome first day in Japan!
I have to share my highlights before hitting the pillow tonight:
1. We shopped in some of the most original places - check out that wig mannequin!
2. I saw some of the biggest billboards. Covered in everything anime, of course.
3. Met a dog wearing pink tennis shoes. Yes, he had four of them. I died.
4. Found the funniest candy... Little faces?? These are the best!
5. Watched a crowd form around Brad as he filmed with the Phantom & GoPro.
Then shortly after watched him get rat out by an angry cop.
6. Got asked to be in a picture with these school girls. Those red bows are killing me!
Tomorrow is our official big work day. Wish us luck! PS. I got my lovely peplum top at Winsome Jones - they have really cute modest stuff!
Next week is when our lives get taken over by traveling, but it's definitely not a bad thing since we will be doing majority of the traveling together - yeah! We take off for Japan next week and I could not be more excited. I think it's because it is Brad's first time to Tokyo, and I cannot wait to see the locals expressions when they see a 6'5" kid walking down the street. Ohh it is going to be good. We just bought a Phantom for our GoPro, and we cannot wait to capture some international footage with it. I think we are finally getting the hang of how to use it - lets just pray it doesn't decide to fly aimlessly into space again like last week. The built in GPS sure saved our butts that time.
If you have any recommendations/advice on traveling to any of these countries, please share!
I think this list applies to all of us, no matter who you are and what you do! Everyone has struggled with creativity at one point or another, right? I can't even count the days that I'm here, staring blankly into my computer screen, hoping to get some kind of creative inspiration! It just doesn't work that way, friends. So in honor of number four, I'm going to get away from the office and ride my bike today.
For those of you who are stuck in the office today, here's some new music to wet your whistle.

My cute little niece Nina turned 8, so my sister Heather planned a Paris party to celebrate! She asked Brad and I to dress up in some of our past Halloween costumes for a surprise guest appearance, and of course we accepted. You know us, we'll take any excuse to get in costumes! We snuck in the front door as the kids were in the basement. I stood in the family room ready for my act, as Brad slipped into the pantry.<--- What a good sport! The girls came upstairs, and the look on Nina's face when we locked eye contact was priceless. I had such a hard time not busting up laughing! My short performance was basically made up on the spot, but I think the little ones enjoyed it. They went around showing their best Mime impressions after. :) Then came my favorite part of the party, when Brad bursted out of the pantry with a Mrs. Doubtfire voice:
But can you believe all the work Heather put into this party? Look at that mural the size of her wall! And how cute is that birthday cake made of crepes!? Talent I tell ya, Talent.
To see more of Heather's amazing birthday parties, take a peek at her blog.
& In the spirit of Paris, I have to share when Brad and I spent the day in Paris last May. :)
