Az Life so Far

So I have been in AZ for about 3 days and I has been a big change. I currently have no job, this is quite a change being that last week I had 2. It has been 5 years since I have been in this situation and it makes me a little bit nervous. I have some things lined up and I don't plan on being unemployed for long but as it stands I have a lot of free time on my hands.

With this free time I have been working on organizing our apartment and discovering the joy of Bravo (the television channel). The past few days I have spent a lot of time enjoying The Millionaire Matchmaker and Flipping Out. I have not yet watched any of the Real Housewives series and am going to try to abstain because those lady's botoxed faces kind of creep me out.

So far everything is going well and I am enjoying the weather immensely (although as I am writing, this it is raining). I am struggling with getting around and figuring where I am half the time. I am hoping it will make more sense with time, and if not I will just hitch hike to get around.

Best of SLC

As this post will most likely be the last I write living in the great state of Utah I wanted to commemorate my home state by listing some of my favorite places in SLC.

1. The Park Cafe, located just south of Liberty Park. The Park Cafe has the best french toast, and that is coming from a breakfast enthusiast so you know its true.

2. Moochies, Best Phillie Cheese steak in Salt Lake. Nuff said.

3. The Broadway Theater, shows all the indie movies I want to see and sells Jordan Almonds at the concession stand. Jordan Almonds!

4. Bruges, you want waffles, they got em. You want french fries, they got em. They don't only have em they have some of the best waffles and french fries in town.

5. Red Iguana, their Muchaka (spelled wrong I'm sure) chimichanga will change your life, and thats no lie.

That is my list of the Best of SLC. I know I am missing some things but it is late and I want to go to bed so I am ending the list here.

You may think the fact that this list is mostly restaurants is sad but I attribute that to my love of food. Truthfully, what I am going to miss the most leaving Salt Lake City is my friends and family. Love you all and when you are south of the border (Utah border) I hope you let me know so I can show you a good time AZ style.

My Favorite Chistmas Movies

In honor of this Christmas season, I am putting together my list of favorite holiday movies. These are the movies that bring the holiday spirit and make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. So without further ado, Mallory's favorite holiday movies:

1. All I want for Christmas
Many of you may have not seen this so I will give you a brief synopsis, the story is about Ethan and Hallie O'Fallon, two kids who live in New York. Their parents get divorced and all Hallie wants for chistmas is for her parents to get back together. Ethan loves his sister so he decides he is going to try and make this happen. I love this movie, it has just the right amount of tenderness and cheese to make it a holiday classic.

2. The Grinch who stole Christmas
I do not mean the Jim Carrey version, I mean the original cartoon version. I love the music I love the animation and I love story. Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit quite like the Grinch and his heart that was two sizes too small.

3. The Muppet's Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol is one of the greatest holiday stories of all time, and my favorite version of this beloved classic is with Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit. Michael Caine is a great Ebenezer Scrooge and I love the song"It Feels Like Christmas". Question, why do I never hear that song around Christmas but am bombarded with "Frosty the Snowman" covers?

4. Elf
Funniest Christmas movie period. After watching Elf, I get the desire to answer the phone saying: "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?"

5. Home Alone
Home Alone is such a great movie. Macaulay Culkin is perfect as Kevin McCallister and they managed to catch him before he got super creepy looking. This movie is just another classic from the great John Hughes.

And that is the list of my favorite Christmas movies.
Now keep the change ya filthy animal!

Another reason why I love Andy

I am a big fan of Andy Warhol, I made that clear in my past post, 'Me an Andy love our Candy'. You also know that in my old apartment I had a bit of a shoe problem, I made this clear in my post, 'The Shoe Situation'. Well feast you eyes on this print by you know who:

This print, titled Diamond Dust Shoes, portrays my shoe situation so beautifully I had to share it. Give it to Andy for talking a shoe situation , similar to mine and making it beautiful.

If you have no idea what I am talking about when I say my "shoe situation" click here and it will clear it up.

At home with Dev & Beck

As I previously posted, I am living at Dev and Becks house. It is a blast from the past being back here and there are some major pros to staying with the parents (beside the obvious free rent).

1. Dev scrapes the snow and ice off my car on snowy days. Awesome.

2. Beck's seriously good cooking. I tend to cook about twice a month, so a good home made meal from the likes of Beck is much appreciated.

3. Dev telling me about his new favorite show Entourage. Yes, you read that right, Entourage. They are playing reruns of it on Spike TV and Dev loves it. He tells me about his favorite charters (Ari and Vince) and why he likes them and then he watches an episode and explains the plot to me.

4. Last but not least, being reunited with my favorite napping spot in the world, the floor next to the heat vent. At Dev and Becks house some of their heat vents are located directly on the floor, easy access for a heat junkie like me. For nap time, I cozy up to the heat vent, cover said vent with a blanket and crawl in. It gets so toasty warm that I don't even care that I am sleeping on the floor like Cinderella.

Overall I am having a pretty good time back in my old crib, and it is nice getting some family time while I am still around.

The one major con of being at my parents house; being approximately 650 miles away from Eric.

Raising Arizona

Eric and I have some pretty exciting news. We are moving to Phoenix, Arizona. Well technically Scottsdale but close enough.

Eric has gotten a got a job down there, so we are heading south. EZ made his way down today (long story as to why he left on Thanksgiving, but lets just say it has to do with the Bruins). I will head down at the end of December.

That means I will have a month of living with my parents like the old days and a month being away from EZ, which I am not to excited about.

The next month is going to suck but I am really excited about the move and the adventure.

Nonsexual Girl Crush

So last night, as I began to watch Glee, I quickly realize that Gweneth Paltrow was guest staring in the episode, and after last nights episode I have officially developed a nonsexual girl crush on her.

Let me start by explaining what I mean by a girl crush,

Nonsexual Girl Crush: When you want to be just like a girl and also be her best friend.
Example: The movie Single White Female, except without all the creepy stuff.

I have decided to have this blog post be about some of my nonsexual girl crushes:

1. Gweneth Paltrow:

As I previously mentioned I kind of fell in love with her last night after her performance as Holly Holliday on Glee. She basically played the coolest substitute teacher ever, I mean she offered to have glee club at Taco Bell, nuf said.

Other than last night's episode, here is why Gwen is just so crushable:
  • She is a classy lady, which is hard to find today, in our Kardashian filled media.
  • She can pull off an English accent better than any other American ever.
  • She is a great serious actress but is also really funny at times. Case and point, The Royal Tenenbaums.

2. Frances Mcdormand:

You may think what a weird choice for a girl crush, I mean the lady from Fargo. Well, yes, exactly. Have you seen Fargo, it is very violent but Frances is amazingly funny in it. Here is why she is on my list:
  • Her performance in Fargo
  • Her performance in Friends with Money. Please just watch the trailer and tell me she is not hilarious.
  • Her performance in Raising Arizona

3. Taylor Swift

Crushable qualities are as follows:
  • She is a great singer/song writer.
  • She is so cute.
  • She comes off as a genuinely nice person.
  • I love all those sparkly dresses she wears to award shows (example available above).

So those are some of my nonsexual girl crushes. I have more, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I may have to do a Girl Crush Volume Two if I have forgotten someone important, but I will keep you posted. Obviously.

Lets celebrate with a Dala horse cake

It was Abbeys birthday this weekend and for her big day Ashley and I made Dala horse cake. Your probably thinking wow that sounds gross, but don't worry, this is not some creepy meat cake, it is a chocolate cake shaped and painted like a Swedish Dalecarlian horse.

The Dalecarlian horse or Dala horse is a traditional carved and painted wooden statuette of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. As proud Swedes we thought it appropriate to have Abbey's birthday celebration showcase our pride.

Real Dala Horse

Abbey in Sweden at a Dala horse workshops

Dala Horse Cake

We ended up with a couple versions of the cake. This was mine and even though Lil Sis openly told me this was her least favorite, I still like it.

I think i'm sick, I just know I have hypocindria

I have discovered that I am a bit of a hypochondriac. It has been a somewhat recent development but it has started with me thinking I am pregnant about every other month. These thoughts are based on no hard evidence but I think that once I really am pregnant, EPT is going to have a serious drop in sales.

My most recent fit of Hypochondria came on a couple days ago and in a form other than pregnancy. I was getting out of the shower and noticed a mole on my back. The mole was not very big but the pigment was irregular and asymmetrical. I took a closer look and immediately went onto the internet and to find out if I was going to make it. Findings were that irregular pigment and irregular shape can be a sign of a cancerous mole. Shortly after that I burst into tears and started to think about what I was going to miss when I was gone. Then Eric got home and I told him the news. He told me everything would be fine and that we would just make a doctors appointment and that I should not worry about it.

The next day I was feeling much better and not so certain of my demise. I was at work, still planning on making an appointment with the doctor when I start getting all these text from Eric. The texts went as follows:

Have you made an appointment?

Here are a list of doctors you could go to.....

I made an appointment for you tomorrow.

Apparently I was feeling better about the situation but Eric was feeling worse.

I went to the Doctor and he said it looked fine but that another mole looked questionable so he removed it.

Overall the experience left me feeling glad that I went into see the doctor, silly because the mole he took off was not the one that freaked me out, aware that I need to take better care of my skin and lastly happy that I have guy like EZ in my life. Sorry that last bit is a little cheesy.

Some Random Thoughts

Mallory's randoms thoughts:

When I was in high school I found some personalized confetti with my name on it, this was a rare find, so of course I bought it. I still have it and I am wondering when I will ever have the use for Mallory confetti. If anyone has any ideas let me know.

I am not a rom com fan, because of this I do not enjoy most of Kate Hudson's movies, I do however adore this cover of Elle Magazine. It is partly because K Hud looks stunning but mostly because of the Marc Jacobs dress she is wearing. Well done Marc, well done.

Ez and I are pretty busy, this means that our apartment often gets turned to the way side. It typically gets to hoarders status before we decide to clean up. It's getting to the point where I am seriously considering getting a cleaning lady. Would it be weird to get a cleaning lady for a one bedroom apartment with cinder block walls?

That's all for now.

If your going to San Francisco

This past weekend Mikey (Eric's Dad) took Eric and myself to California to see the Bruins play Cal.

Our first stop was Sacramento to stay with Eric's Grandparents. I had never met them so it was so great to finally meet. They were such lovely people and such gracious hosts. I look forward to seeing them again.

Next stop was Berkley, home of the Cal Bears. Our first stop in Berkley was Burger Meister.

Then off to California Memorial Stadium to see the game.

Eric and I before the game started. If we had known how the game would have ended we might not have been so smiley.

The game did not go so well. The bruins lost but it was still great to see Berkley's campus and to see the beautiful Bruins play in person.

Next we went into San Fran. I met up with my high school bestie Charity. She is living there and she showed me all the sights.

Above: a sign I liked.

BTW: San Fran is a really cool city and the weather in October is beautiful, or at least it was the weekend of the 8th.

Below: Charity and I in China Town.

To sum it all up, even though the Bruins lost, the weekend was a success. I got to meet Eric's Grandparents, see my old pal Charity and get reacquainted with San Francisco. Nuff said.

A new addition

Eric and I have a new addition in our apartment, no it is not a French Bulldog puppy, it is a new mattress.

Dev and Beck had told us that they would get us a bed for a wedding present and in typical Olson fashion, we finally got around to buying it last weekend.

You are probably thinking, does this really merit a blog post. Well, when you love sleep as much as I do, an incredibly comfortable new mattress is a big deal, so it does merit a blog post. Plus the mattress we were sleeping on had been Eric's since he was 12, meaning it was extremely below par, so much so, that the preferred napping spot was our Ikea couch and not the bed. Nuff said.

So now I will share with you the things I have realized since getting the new bed:

1. Waking up in the morning is hard, especially now that the mornings are getting cold

2. The snooze button is a cruel lover that I keep coming back to

3. Pillow tops are one of the greatest creations ever, I put it right behind Pandora

Now I must end this post so I can go to sleep.

All my exes live in Texas therefore I reside in SLC

As many of you know, when I married Eric I also adopted a college sports team, that team is the UCLA Bruins. To support our Bruins, the Olson clan (the other Olson clan) made their way south. All the way to Texas. The Bruins were playing the University of Texas, yeah those guys that played in the national championship last year. A bit daunting to say the least for our little Bruin bears.

Because of that we had to enjoy ourselves and ensure that the trip was not an entire bummer.

We spent time in San Antonio which was a pretty neat place.

Interesting fact about Texas in September: it is hot as Hell, but more humid.

San Antonio's River Walk, very jazzy.

Game Day in Austin. In from of Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium.

The marching band. Look at that T, well done guys.

Ez and i looking very happy, are the Bruins winning for real? THE BRUINS ARE WINNING!

The Bruins won! Just look at that UCLA section, so proud of that beautiful Bruin blue wave.

Bevo, Texas mascot. Sorry Bevo, it turns out in the battle between a Bruin bear and a Longhorn, the Bruin wins, who knew.

Steve, Michelle, Eric and I sticking around after the bruins HUGE win. I know many of you out there may not realize how awesome it was that UCLA won. Let me throw some facts at you to put it in perspective.

  • Texas was ranked 7th in the country, UCLA was not ranked.
  • UCLA was 1-2, Texas was 3-0
  • Texas was the 2009 Big 12 Champions
  • The last time Texas was beat at home was in 2007
Basically this was one of the best football games in UCLA history and we were there! Such a great weekend. Thanks to Mike for making it all happen!

P.S. The title of this post is in reference to a George Strait song. I do not in reality have any exes in Texas.

Ginger Hall of Fame

As a red head (albeit a new one, hey I had red hair when I was a baby), I feel I need to stand up for my ginger brothers and sisters. Red Heads get the rep of being mean, ugly and having pasty white skin and all of these are a misrepresentation of the group (except the pasty white skin, that usually rings true). To prove the anti-ginger folks wrong, I came up with group of awesome carrot tops (Carrot Top the comedian not included. He is a embarrassment to gingers everywhere).

The Red Head Hall of Fame:

Ann Margret: Iconic Red Head

Conan O'Brien: Funny Red Head

Christina Hendricks: Curvaceous Red Head

Ron Howard: Oscar Winning Red Head

Isla Fisher: All Around Adorable Red Head

Shaun White: Athletic Red Head

As you can see there are some pretty great gingers in the world, so the next time you decide to put them down, remember this list.

Are you hungry?

I consider myself someone who can appreciate good food. Whenever EZ and I go out to eat we compete to see who can order the better thing. I am usually the winner, because of this I am going to let my blog readers in on some pretty good eats.

I discovered these little jems while at the Asian market. You had to spend over $10 to use your card and I was at $8 so I just picked them up and I am so happy I did. HI-CHEWs are like Mambas but so so so much better. Try them, you will like them. P.S. I recommend Apple or Orange.

#2 Burnt Almond Fudge Milkshake
Okay this one takes a little prep time. Here are the ingredients you need;
  • Burnt Almond Fudge ice cream (sometimes hard to find, but don't think you can substitute it, this is a very important ingredient).
  • Malted Milk
  • Skim Milk
Mix together to your preferred consistency. You may not think this sounds so great but let me just tell you this, last weekend, Eric ate 2 of these a days and drove across town twice to get the Burnt Almond Fudge ice cream.

#3 Pop-Secret Homestyle Popcorn
I love popcorn and this is the best popcorn you can get without making it the old fashion way yourself. This popcorn has the perfect amount of butter and salt. For extra bonus enjoy with Milk Duds.

Another blog post about food. What can I say, I like to eat. Also shout out to Dan's Food in Foothill. All of the above items are available there (one of the only places you can find Burnt Almond Fudge).

Me and Andy love our candy

The other day I was online and I came across this little tidbit of information:

"Andy Warhol would visit pastry shops daily, sometimes bringing home an entire birthday cake and eating it by himself. At sumptuous meals, he would abstain, explaining, ‘Oh, I only eat candy.' One time at an airport, his bag was searched at customs and found to be full of candy, chewing gum, and cookies. After his death, his collection of cookie jars was auctioned off for a quarter of a million dollars."

I had always liked Andy Warhol's work but after I read this, I was in love. "I only eat candy" are you kidding me, that is the coolest thing I have ever heard.

So anyways, in honor of my new favorite artist I am going to show you some of his works and share some interesting facts about the man:

Eight Elvises, c.1963 sold for 100 million dollars. This put Warhol in to the prestigious 100 Million Dollar Club, which includes Jackson Pollock, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso

Grevy's Zebra, c.1983

Andy owned a Great Dane named Cecil. The stuffed dog is now on display at the Andy Warhol Museum.

Andy Warhol regularly attended mass at his church (St. Vincent Ferrer Church in Manhattan, New York) and was credited as being a very spiritual and religious man.

Guns, c.1981-82

Andy Warhol is the famed founder of the magazine Interview.

While in high school, Andy Warhol became ill with St. Vitus' disease, which is believed to be a complication of scarlet fever. The disease led Andy to develop into a hypochondriac, causing him to have a great fear of hospitals and medical doctors as an adult.

Dog, c.1986

Yes, the best for last, my beloved frenchie!

Summers coming to an end

As Summer is quickly coming to an end I am having some mixed feelings. In the past when August would roll around I would get a dreading feeling as I knew school was quickly approaching and my care free days of summer soon would be over. Not that I am out of school and working, those feelings are gone and I am left a little excited for fall to start. I am not excited for it to get cold but here are some of the things I am looking forward to in fall:

1. Football (especially college). Come November I will probably be cursing football but as of now I am actually really excited for football to start.

2. (Continuation of 1) Bruin trips. Bruin trips are the vacations we take to see the UCLA football team play. This year we are going to Austin to see UCLA play University of Texas (probably wont go so well for UCLA but I am excited to see Austin) and Berkley to see UCLA play Cal. I am really excited.

3. No longer having to sleep in the hottest apartment ever. Our apartment is so hot and the AC does not reach our bedroom, this makes the midsummer nights a little unbearable. Not the best sleeping environment as you can imagine.

4. Fall clothes and not having to worry about sweating. Nuff said.

The Neistat Brothers

Recently I was flipping through the channels and landed on HBO (expensive I know, but I cannot bring myself to canceling it). I became interested in a show that was playing. It was unlike anything I had watched on TV and after watching approximately 30 seconds I was hooked. The show was titled The Neistat Brothers.

I have attached the shows trailer above so you can get a feel for what it's about.

The show has inspired me to start documenting my life in film. Be prepared for some home movies to be posted. I will try to make them entertaining, but I cannot make any promises.

If you have HBO I highly recommend checking out The Neistat Brothers, if you do not have HBO, you can come over to the Fairlane and watch it with Eric and I, if neither of those options work for you then I say you are being quite difficult and I have given up.

An ecclectic grouping

Eric and I have one of the most random selection of music. I get my love for radom tunes from my dad (Dev). Dev got an ipod about 3 years ago and has not updated his music selection since he added his 40 favorite songs. His music rages from Pink's Get the Party Started to Big Band to I had the time of my life from Dirty Dancing. He could listen to that random mix of music over and over till Beck goes crazy.

I must say I need more than 40 songs to keep me entertained but I do have quite the random grouping of music. Here is a list of some of the things you might find Ez and I listening at any given time:
  • Private Eyes by Hall and Oats
  • Spirit of the Radio by Rush
  • Ghosts N Stuff by Deadmau5
  • Don't Stop Believing by Cast of Glee
  • No Love by Eminem
That is s pretty random mix but the best thing that Eric decided to purchase was the soundtrack to Fiddler on the Roof. We get to enjoy If I were a Rich Man and Tradition when ever we would like.

Auntie Mal

Right now in my life I do not feel ready to start a family, at all, I do however get really excited when people around me have children. Currently I have two nieces; Lydia and Violet. Lydia is almost 3 and so sassy, as you can tell from the picture, Violet is almost 3 months and so chubby and adorable. They are the cutest little girls and it is so fun seeing them grow up.

Recently I got some real jazzy news, my sister Ashley and her hubby Ryan are having a baby! This will be the first niece/nephew on my side of the family and I am so excited. I am also so happy for my parent because I know they have been wanting a Grandchild and the news has sent them over the moon.

Congratulation Ash and Ryan!

The Shoe Situation

Ez and I's reside is a small, one bedroom apartment we like to refer to as the Fairlane. Said apartment is cheap and that's why we like it, but what we gain in our pocket books we lose in closet space.

My Grandma used to have a saying "a place for everything and everything in its place". It is when you don't have a place for everything you realize how important this saying is.

Our organizational problem is most evident in the bedroom with my shoe situation. I like shoes, unfortunately I have no real place to put them except for in a giant pile in the corner of our bedroom (pictures above). This picture could be taken strait out of an episode of Hoarders, luckily the rest of our apartment does not look this bad.

I admire people who are organized even in the most cramped situations. You see those people in NYC that have apartments smaller than a cardboard box that maintain a very organized existence, and that is impressive to me. Although that being said, I would like to see how many pairs of shoes they own in that cardboard box, probably only a couple pairs and home girl need more than a couple pairs of shoes.

Mal's book review

I just finished a book that I loved so much I am devoting an entire blog post to it. The book is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It is narrated by three different women all of which live in Jackson Mississippi in the 1960's. I will not go into great detail about the plot because I will not give it justice.

All you need to know is this book was beautiful. It was funny, heartbreaking and uplifting. Their were times while reading I would cheer out loud. I would get so into it that I had to talk about it with someone. I would explain the whole story to Eric just so I could discuss it with him. I didn't want the story to end and when it did I just kept on reading, I read the acknowledgment and about the author and I would of read the bibliography if their was one.

The author Katheryn Stockett is so talented. This is her first book and to be honest I don't know how she is going to top this.

I encourage everyone to read this book, even you non readers (Abbey). You will not be disappointed.

Happy Birthday America

For the 4th of July this year; Dev, Beck, Ashley (older sister), Ryan (older sisters husband), Eric and I went to Blanding, Utah. In case you do not know where Blanding is, please refer to the map above. Look to the bottom right, that star all by itself, that is Blanding. Now don't let that name or location fool you, Blanding is bumpin'. I mean it has a Subway and an A & W restaurant, what more can you ask for.

On the 4th Blanding does a big celebration which includes a pancake breakfast, a parade, a fair and an amateur boxing matches (and by amateur we mean 7 year old kids boxing as their dads cheer them on from the sidelines, and in case you were wondering, it is as weird and unsettling as it sounds). The day finishes with a firework show (of course) and, I must say, it is pretty impressive for a town that has a population 3,162 people. All in all, Blanding knows how to celebrate Americas birthday, and because of it, we had a really fun 4th of July.

In honor of the 4th, I would like to thank all the service men and women who risk their lives to keep our country safe. Thank you.

Step Class

When you go to the gym and walk by the workout class room and see all these really intense women, I am one of those women. I love workout classes and I get really into them. My favorite class and probably the most nerdy is Step class. Step is where you do dance like moves around a step, and it sounds as silly as it is, but I love it. See picture above for mental image, just insert me front and center, looking incredibly sweaty and very serious.

Thursday, June 17, 2010


So recently Eric and I got into the show 'Breaking Bad'. The premise of the show is a high school chemistry teacher starts cooking meth after he finds out he has cancer, anyways, this said chemistry teacher uses an alias when he cooks and deals his drug.

This got me thinking, what would I use as an alias if I decided t0 turn to a life of crime. I have come up with a few and I think they are pretty good, so I am going to share them with you. They are:
Edith Greenly
April McQueen
Stella Wentworth

Probably not a good idea to post your future aliases like this but I don't see my life of crime coming to fruition in the near future so I think it will be okay.

Recent Events

I have been quite busy lately:

1. Eric turned 28 on June 3rd. HAPPY BIRTHDAY EZ! Eric loved his birthday cupcake as you can see below.

2. Went to Vegas. So fun, saw O and Lion King and loved both of them!

3. Lots o' work, got back from Vegas and got to work at Fuel (the marketing firm where I work) and BR (Banana Republic).

4. So You Think You Can Dance has started, anyone who knows me knows that this is a big deal.

Never fear though, even with my busy life my blog takes priority, not first priority but somewhere in the upper middle, way above cleaning my apartment but below sleeping.

Kitty Cat

I have not had a cat post in a while, your welcome.
