Weekend recap - Nov 27-29

Where do I start off? Wait, have you noticed that I am beginning to become a blog slacker? I just don't know what to blog about anymore.  So, let's recap my weekend.  Friday night, Julie and I finally were able to lock down a date so that the four of us (Mike and Mikey are the other two) could go out for dinner. We had all intentions of going to Joey's but after seeing the crazy amount of people in the place and being told that they have an hour and a half wait, we decided to check out Glow.  Their wait was 35 minutes. We put our name on the list and off we went to walk around. Exactly 35 minutes later, we get the call and head over to Glow Fresh Grill and Wine Bar. The food here is pretty good. Some of the items we ordered were: Glow Salad, Warm Wild Mushroom Salad, Burger Sliders, Ribeye special, Lobster Mac and Cheese, Lamb Chops and Rainbow Trout.  The dessert was a lot of fun. I'm not going to tell you what it is, you have to go there to find out for yourself. Here is a picture of Mike's Mojito (it was good but warm) and my Peach Bellini (it's huge, I didn't even finish it)

After dinner, we went back to Julie's house. Mike and I stayed over. We tried to watch House Bunny but the movie was slow starting off, which I don't remember it being this way, Mike and I love this movie so we switched it up to Russell Peters' Red, White and Brown. We laughed even though we all had a food coma. It was 1 am and we all decided to go to bed. I couldn't sleep so I probably stayed up until 2:30 am researching all-inclusive resorts for a potential Christmas vacation.

The next day, we watched Julie and Mikey eat breakfast, it looked so delicious but we had to save out appetite since we were next heading to Stouffville to finally visit Mare & Bruce.  We were greeted with a shy Mileah and Bruce cooking pancakes from scratch, sausages and fried egg. It was a delicious brunch!!!  Mare gave us a tour of their house, it's such a nice house, a very unique layout. We got to play with Mileah for a bit. She is so entertaining. She loves to listen to all of us laugh and converse. She showed us her injured soldier crawl, how she claps and says bye.  Here's a cute picture of her waving at the camera.

After this visit, we headed to Aurora to visit the Sarmientos. It was a nice visit. I got to play Barbies with Belle. I painted her nails, she painted mine. I did up her hair, she did up mine. We also got to see Steph and Jay and Michael's parents.  The reason we stopped by is because I needed to pick up a dress and shoes from Dianne but also I wanted to see Blake. See, Blake is my godson/nephew and he is terrified of me. He cries at the sight of me. Dianne says it's because he doesn't know me so Mike and I decided that we have to see him more often. Sure enough, he cried just looking at me and Mike. Luckily, we left on a good note. As Dianne was feeding him cantalope, he was a happy camper and I actually got him to smile.  Too bad I wasn't able to capture it on my phone. I did though capture this picture of him earlier.  This is the look we get from him as soon as he sees us. 

Sunday afternoon I spent with my mom making a tutu for Belle's birthday party. This is the beginning of it. The end result is great. It's a cute little tutu. I actually want one for myself. It's easy to make and costs next to nothing.  Belle is going to look awesome in it!

My mom left around 3:30 and Mike and I spent the rest of the afternoon and night researching resorts. We narrowed it down to two but are still having a hard time deciding where to go. It will definitely be Riviera Maya or Punta Cana. It's just hard to find a decent resort in our price range.  Going away during Christmas costs an arm and a leg. I have to admit that we have become reosrt snobs and that is why it's becoming really difficult for us. I finally gave up around midnight and decided to go to sleep. What was nice about this evening was that for some strange reason, our TV in the bedroom was working (not sure if I ever posted anything about how our TV rarely ever works, we are in the market for a new one) so we got to enjoy watching in our bed while searching the net.

Tonight, I am doing more research as I MUST book tomorrow.  In between though, I am making a friendship bracelet. Remember back in the day when we use to make them???  Well, I just want one to wear...


That's it! I am posting this. I am too lazy to read it over or do a spell check. So if there are mistakes, forgive me. I just wanted to complete this post and go back to my research.

Random thoughts again...

50% off Outerwear: If you are in need of a winter coat, H&M and Jacob are offering 50% all outerwear this weekend.  I got a black 3/4 coat with a high neck collar for only $40.

Women's Health magazine: Never underestimate a health magazine. I don't know if this issue is packed with info because of the holiday season but I am seriously loving this mag. There are easy, quick excerises, beauty tips, sex & health issues, info on how to ace an interview, lots of fashion ideas (and good fashion too), and also a gift guide. I also like the layout of the magazine and format of the articles. They are straight to the point, no long essay-type stories. I will have to pick up the next issue to see if I really do like it. It may be subscription-worthy!

Joey's: Tonight, I am going here with Mike, Julie and Mikey. Everyone has been raving about this place. It's too bad that Mike and I didn't go and try it out while we were in Vancouver.  I hope it lives up to the hype that everyone is giving it.  What I can't wait to try is anything taco - ahi tuna or baja fish. I have received tons of recommendations so I hope I am hungry when I go!

Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Latte: After seeing a couple of people on my twitter feed (@oreginal and @fabbrunette) mention that they are having the peppermint mocha latte, I wanted to try it out for myself. I got it this morning with lactaid milk and no whip. It was super sweet. I didn't like it at all. It's enjoyable when I first sip it. There is a nice mocha flavour taste but then when I swallow, all I taste is the shot of peppermint and my mouth gets all minty. I really don't like it.  My friend, MoPar got one an hour after I did and after I gave her my review. She ordered it 1/2 swwet, lactaid and lite whipped and she liked it. I guess she knew what to order because she is a Starbucks junkie. Maybe next time, I will order it the way she did.

Cooking Mama: Shop & Chop

The Cooking Mama games are my favorite. My late brother would always buy me the latest version for either Wii or DS. I just happened to go on GameSpot today and saw that Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop came out last month.

Lucky for me, I still have a Toys R Us gift card from J & A from last year (I had to return Ocean Zenses because I got two copies for my bday). I can use it to get this game. Now I just have to give hubby my gift card and ask him to pick it up for me.

Vanity Fair - Robert Pattinson

The other day, I bought three magazines - Nylon, Women's Health and the third one was going to be a treat for me, a magazine that had Robert Pattinson on the cover.  It was a toss up between Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar. I chose Harper's because of all the fashion that was in it. The rest of the articles in Vanity Fair didn't catch my attention at all. Plus, you can read the articles from VF on their website.  But after tweeting with @devlish_smile, she convinced me that the VF magazine was really worth getting. I thought and debated about getting it but at the end, I decided that I should just get the pictures that I like and post them here, courtesy of Vanity Fair.

Is it me or do I love photos of guys smoking and drinking (and eating)? I'm so attracted to bad asses.

There are a ton of other photos on Vanity Fair's website - Robert Pattinson: The Bruce Weber Potraits Part One, Two and Three.

Random things about me

Eyebrows: For the past three months, I have been growing out my eyebrows. I have avoided getting my brows threaded or waxed and have resorted to me plucking them myself.  By me maintaining my own brows, I can control what to take off and what needs to stay so that I can somewhat achieve thicker brows. So far, it's been pretty good. My right eyebrow is looking fuller but it definitely has no shape. My left eyebrow on the other hand is not doing so well. There's a bald spot that doesn't seem to want to grown any hair. I have to pencil it in everyday just to match with the other side.  In a couple of months, I hope that both sides are full and I can go to a respectable brow place to have them shape it without taking off too much.

New Moon: I know that I still may not be able to talk about it because my two sister-in-laws probably have not had a chance to see it over the weekend. I sure want to watch it again but this time around, I'm not going to be as crazy as I was with Twilight. I watched it four times in the theatre (twice on opening weekend). Here's what is probably safe to talk about..I loved the introduction of the wolves and the Volturi. New Moon wasn't my favorite in the saga but it is definitely better than Twilight in terms of the CGI and action scenes. Bella also looks much better compared to how homely she looked in Twilight. It was very funny while watching the movie to hear many grown women screaming when Jacob is shirtless. I can admit that his body is hot but I always remind myself that he is 17! If anyone wants to watch New Moon, let me know, I would be happy to watch it again.

Red-Violet Hair: Back in the beginning of November, I coloured my hair a reddish-violet colour. I can't remember the brand or the actually colour name. At first, it was a bright vibrant colour but now that it's settled in, I really like it and have been getting many compliments on it. My roots are showing though, other people can't really see it, but I can.  Pretty soon I am going to have to think about whether to colour it again the same colour or if I should dye it black (my intentions were to do this bright red colour and then dye it black).  One thing I do know for sure is that I am going to get Maureen to dye it. I strained my arms just trying to apply the colour and also washing it out.

Twitter: This craze is my favorite. I love it and I can't get enough of it. I'm addicted.  It has become my routine to read my twitter feed every morning when I wake up. I won't get up until I have read what went on the past several hours. I also read while I am at work. It's my new love. It's also a good way to get the news you want to read by follow certain people - celebrities or just normal folks. I also like the quick, short updates from my friends. The best part, the many nice and helpful people I have met. A simple reply on a tweet I made...a recipe sent through a direct message...mindless banter about vacation spots...ordering cupcakes - these are all ways that I have made twitter friends. Seriously, if you aren't on Twitter, you should give it a try, you may just end up liking it.

Quest Crew: Another obsession of mine. I can't get enough of these guys. Not only are they talented (they dance, sing play the guitar and piano) but they are hilarious. I wonder what it would be like to spend a day with them? I'm sure I would have an awesome time. Mike thinks I am retarded and I think he gets annoyed by the countless YouTube videos I watch of them. I really miss watching them on American's Best Dance Crew. I'm glad they won because they sure deserved it!

New Moon is finally here!!!

Yes, I am excited. I have tried to avoid reading any early reviews but the ones on twitter have been saying that it's just so-so.  I will have to see for myself. Two hours at work and then I am off to the theatre. Thank God it's Friday and I'm leaving work early to watch a movie I have been dying to watch.

Things I am excited to see:
  • The wolves - especially Paul - I want to see the transformations (although it's already shown in trailers)
  • Dakota Fanning as Jane
  • The whole Italy and Volturi scene
  • Edward, of course
  • And sadly, Jacob's body. I know it's gross, he's 17 but I have heard some comments that it's a must-see

Bad Romance - Lady Gaga

Who isn't obsessed with this song? It's so catchy.  It's the Westside Crew's winter anthem...I just can't stop listening to it and singing it. I even have dreams about it. I'm crazy!

New Moon: 3 more days

Each day I get more excited that I will be watching New Moon with Marie on Friday. I have taken the afternoon off to watch the 12:20 pm show. Last year, I watched Twilight at the same time but now I just realized that this Friday is a P.A. Day. Oh Marie, we need to get there early and hope that we get a seat. This is just madness.

It will be interesting to see the wolves, especially the hot one, Paul (Alex Meraz).  In case you don't know, he is the one on the left.

Melrose Place: David and Lauren - what will happen tomorrow???

My BFF, Julie sent me this.  It's our latest obsession. I can't wait for tomorrow to find out what is going to happen with David and Lauren.  Does that kiss by the pool change everything for them?

Christmas shopping: Part One

I am not quite sure if Mike and I will be away for Christmas again this year. As much as I would like to not be in town, it looks like we might be stuck here.  I still don't know if I will be buying Christmas gifts this year, sure, call me Scrooge but I have no Christmas spirit in me. Maybe I have a tad because I will give you some gift ideas.

For your Travel savvy friend: LuxeCity guides - these guides are cute and pretty enough to just carry in your purse.

For your Glam Friend: Bebe Multi-Stone Ring - all girls need a big cocktail type ring to wear on her finger and this one is inexpensive.

For your Music lovin' friend: Glee Soundtrack - this is just a happy, feel good soundtrack.

For your TV lovin' friend: Friday Night Lights, Season 1, Season 2 and Season 3 - FNL is the most underrated show. No one really knew about it and I am not quite sure why. It's got hot guys, sexy girls, awesome story lines, football and that theme songs that instantly melts your heart. I guaranteed that this show will be a hit in your friend's books (guy or girl).

For your Fashion obsessed friend: Style A to Zoe - if she's seen the show, she'll die with this book. It's BA-NANAS!

For your Beauty junkie friend: Smashbox EyeWish Palette - cream liners, eyeshadows and's everything you need, well, except for the needed brushes. But if this is for your friend who is a beauty junkie, she'll already have the brushes!

For your Baker friend: Sprinkles Cupcake Mixes - it's always good to have cupcake mix on hand when you need a cupcake fix. I have tried red velvet and lemon and they taste delicious, mind you, I have never actually had a real Sprinkles cupcake.

For every girl: Collezione di Jasmine Hair Smoothing Essentials - Oscar Blandi is my new best friend and he should be everyone else's. My relationship started with his dry shampoo and has grown ever since. Every girl must try his products and this kit is an introduction to his products. Actually his toolkit is a great intro but I don't think it's available anymore.

FABTen on rotation (Nov 13)

I haven't done one of these in a while. It's probably because I haven't been listening to music lately but with my recent road trip to New Jersey, there are some songs that are lingering in my head (plus some songs from the Glee soundtrack).

FabTen Songs (Nov 13)

Melrose Place: David and Lauren

My BFF, Julie and I can not stop talking about this scene from last night's episode of Melrose Place (Season 1, Episode 9).  If you are a fan of this show, you know that Lauren and David are good friends who will do anything for each other but this time, after Lauren comes to the rescue and helps David's little brother Noah, David makes his move. His words, their dialogue between them is intense.  I wonder if they will hook up at some point this season.  These two will be the two to keep an eye on...who cares about Jonah and Riley.  I was actually hoping Jonah would hook up with Ella.

Here is the scene between David and Lauren...I bet you will watch it over and over again. Just listen to David's line when he tells Lauren why he stopped stealing...

NJ shopping purchases

While in New Jersey for the weekend, we made two shopping stops - Woodbury and Flemington outlets.  Both had a Cole Haan outlet and one had a Converse store.  The entire family went crazy with Mike's discount. I also got to use my brother-in-law's discount at American Apparel. I bought a cute spring dress in hot pink for $4 and a stretch grey belt for $5. Here is what else I bought...

The wallet I have always wanted. It's perfect for me.

I have a lot of large bags so I wanted one that was medium size.  It's a pewter colour.  It's also perfect for me because this season, I am in love with anything grey.

I know I said I didn't need another large bag but I think I do with a classic shape like this.  I love the braided handles.  After this bag, no more bags needed.  I am complete...

...well, I will be complete with this last purchase.  I have been trying to look for a small bag with a chain strap and I found it just before paying.  I die!

Since I didn't get to buy a pair when we were in Vegas, I wasn't going to snooze this time.  I decided on high top leather ones.  My brother-in-law picked up a pair too.  Actually I was helping him find a size and then saw they had my size too!

New Jersey road trip

CONGRATULATIONS Jo Anne and Genson!!!!

Jo Anne is Mike's cousin and her wedding to Genson is the reason the Solon Massive went to Somerset, NJ this past weekend.  Mike's parents, his younger sister and her family flew down Thursday and the rest of the family (me, Mike, Mike's older sister and her husband, and Mike's younger brother and his girlfriend) drove.

Our adventure started at 12:30 am on Saturday. We drove all night so that we could get to Woodbury outlets when it opened.  We made it but only after driving through some scary, vampire-looking towns to avoid paying any tolls.  Mike drove the leg of the drive where we were in the middle of nowhere. I am telling you it was straight out of Mystic Falls from The Vampire Diaries, even Mike said so. We were all up the whole two hours because we had to be on deer watch (Jon was too scared to sleep, I think).  We passed road signs that told us to beware of tractors, deer and snowmobiles.  I have to say that I am so oblivious to my surroundings. I didn't see the deers until someone else pointed them out and I was in the passenger seat!!!  The first deer we saw was massive. A huge truck passed us and sped away. He was driving so fast that he probably didn't see the ginormous deer crossing the road.  We drove past a another deer just chilling on the side of the road, staring us down. In less than a minute later, a deer shot out of the side of the road and made a mad dash.  I don't think I have ever been so terrified - not only because of the deer but because I felt like a vampire was going to come flying out of the woods and eat us.  Too much True Blood, Twilight and Vampire Diaries made our minds wonder.  We were so thankful when we got back on a main highway.

9:30 am Saturday morning and we are finally at Woodbury. We gave ourselves until 1:30 pm to shop. We raided the Cole Haan store with Mike's discount and also Converse.  We didn't get to fully check out all the stores because we still were an hour away from the hotel and Mike's dad kept on calling us. We finally arrived to the hotel. I was exhausted. I barely slept the whole drive. I got carsick at some point and threw up.  I tried to sleep but every time I closed my eyes, I got dizzy.  When we got our room, I crashed.  I missed the family gathering that everyone went to but I am kinda glad because I got to spend some time with Jo Anne and Genson, who I met for the first time. They are awesome.  Actually, Jinggoy's (Mike's dad) entire family is super nice. For the rest of the night, we just hopped from room to room, visiting family.  I think the whole Solon family occupied the 4th floor.

8:00 am Sunday, we hear this little knock on the door and were woken up by these little visitors...

Our niece and nephew came by our room to play and also to wake us up for MORE shopping. As much as Mike and I wanted to just sleep in, we went.  I can't believe that I am saying this, but I am officially SHOPPED OUT!!!  My next post will be photos of what I bought.  So the Solon family went to the Flemington outlets and returned to the hotel with only an hour to get ready for the wedding.

The ceremony started at 4:15 pm and cocktails at The Palace began at 7:00 pm. We left the hotel way after 7 pm but if we had known what we was in store for us, I am pretty sure, we would have been there right on time. This place is magnificent, extravagant, royal, all things a palace can be described as. The cocktail reception wasn't just passed out hors d'oeuvres, there were food stations everywhere. Let me name them off for you - cheese and antipasti station, roast beef station, roast pig station, seafood station, pasta station, chicken and veal station and who knows what else because we didn't even look around. Dinner started late but after all that eating during cocktails, we thought that dinner would be very small.  Boy were we wrong...first course - half lobster with some kind of sauce, second course - salad with tomato and endive, three course - choice of pan-seared halibut or grilled new york sirloin and lastly dessert was wedding cake and a dessert buffet. I am telling you, this wedding was out of this world.  To top it off, only two speeches, dancing in between courses and the kicker...wait for it...cake cutting outside on the terrace and wait for it some more...FIREWORKS!!!!!

I kid you not.  Fireworks.  I was in awe!!!  The funny thing is the night before when we were hanging out Jo Anne and Genson, we saw the firworks going off (The Palace was nearby to the hotel) and Jo Anne was telling us that they didn't get it because it's a ridiculous amount to pay for them.  Little did we all know that Genson got them as a surprise for Jo Anne. What a sweet guy!  The evening ended at midnight.  No drinking for me because I was worried about hangover hell for a eight hour ride back home.

We left on Monday at 11 am and was home by 7 pm. No grilling questions at the border. No carsickness for me. Just a wild crazy singing session of Don't Stop Believin'.  This was an interesting weekend trip. It was a bit overwhelming meeting the whole Solon clan but by the end of the trip, I was able to put together the puzzle of how everyone is related. I got to learn a bit more about my brother-in-law Jay (he is always there for Steph's family - he is going to make an awesome dad one day) and I think that my other brother-in-law, Jon is warming up to me a tiny bit. It's great to see such a big family get along so well (except it gets a little scary when they are hungry or tired because they all start yelling at each other, and that's when I just stay off in the sidelines). It must have been a very nice reunion to have the whole clan get together.

Some things I learned from the trip:
  • Don't try and avoid tolls. I would rather spend $20 on tolls than drive through vampire towns.
  • Mike is awesome driving with a GPS, he is not so paranoid about where to go. I was proud of him.
  • Take gravol to avoid motion sickness.
  • Bring nice pajamas so you don't end up looking like a little boy when meeting the family.
  • Pack lots of snacks.
  • Don't pack so much in your luggage so you can bring more back.
  • Have a pit stop every two hours (even if it's just to go to the washroom).
  • Maybe I am just not cut out for road trips.  Flying is much better.

Friday Night Lights

First of all, I can't believe that there are no promo pics for season 4?!?! I know that many people do not know of Friday Night Lights because it airs on Direct TV and we, in Canada, don't get this channel. NBC will be broadcasting in the summer of 2010, but who can wait that long.  For now, even though the show airs on Wednesday nights, I will just have to wait a couple of days and search for it online.

Season 4 is quite interesting.  I thought it would be different and just not the same with some characters not returning (Lyla, Tyra, Smash, Street) but I like the new characters (Vince, Luke).  I especially like Luke (remember him as Victory's assistant, Roy on Lipstick Jungle), he is so polite and honest.  I am hooked already and it's only the second episode.   I don't want to spoil it, in case there are people out there who are going to wait until next summer to watch. If during the upcoming holiday season when most shows are on hiatus, you need to watch something, please consider playing catch up and get hooked on this show.  Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

I don't know about you, but doesn't the theme song get to you every time you hear it.  Doesn't it just send shivers up your spine?

MAC stores - a big NO NO!!!

This is why I try to stay away from MAC stores.  Everytime I go in, I want something.  Luckily, I have the will power to say no but all I can think about on the GO train ride home is the products that I tried on.  I know that I shouldn't buy anything because God knows I don't need anymore makeup but cremesheen glass comes and goes. And when it goes, I kick myself for not buying it.  The makeup artist said, "It's limited edition" so I know that means that if I don't buy it now, who knows when I will see it again. For now, well, this week, I am going to try and hold back and not tempt myself to buying anything. On today's visit, this is what I had my eye on:

Cremesheen Glass - shades that I like:  Partial to Pink and Boy Bait.  I think that they are kinda too light for me with winter coming up and my pasty skin making an appearance now but I wouldn't mind stockpiling these shades for the summer (when I become blark).

Eyeshadow Kit in Sorceress - I love purple and smoky shades.  This is perfect for me. I recently dyed my hair a red/violet colour. Not sure if this will suit the new change but I plan on dyeing my hair black when this colour starts to fade.  That is when the palette will come in handy.

Paint Pot - the shade that has caught my eye is Bare Study, it's like the Shroom of Paint Pots.  This is a very neutral colour that can be worn for an everyday look or spiced up for a evening look.  It is described as a champagne with gold and white pearl.  I would use this paint pot when I am too lazy to use a brush w/ Shroom or I only have five minutes to do my makeup.  I can just use my finger to apply.  I love it!

I think I can honestly do without the eyeshadow palette but have to make a decision about the paint pot and maybe ONLY one of the cremesheen glass.  I will wait to see what damage I do from this weekend's getaway.  I think a new bag from Cole Haan is something I want more.

WOW, he admitted it...

...last night, out of nowhere, Mike tells me that we shouldn't buy a house because he knows that he can't do all the things that come along with owning a house. For example, fixing the roof, shovelling the snow, raking the leaves, mowing the lawn.  I am glad that he has accepted this fact.  He tells me that when we plan on moving into a bigger place, we should look for a condo with two bedrooms and den.  I told him that we should look for a building that doesn't have a pool or a gym so we don't have to pay for ridiculous maintenance fees.  Although a small townhouse wouldn't be so bad, Mike wouldn't have to do all that outdoor maintenance. 

We have a year and a half to think about what we want to do.  A lot can happen in that amount of time.  Who knows, maybe we might win the lottery and end up living on an island.  Wishful thinking!!!

Newly purchased mascara

I recently read about Cover Girl's new msacara, LashBlast Length and wanted to try it but I told myself that I have a couple of other mascaras that I have to try out first.

Yesterday while I was at Shopper Drug Mart, the Cover Girl promo stand for the mascara had a bunch of $2.00 off coupons.  I tore off three of them to save for a rainy day. The mascara at Shoppers regularly sells for $10.99 but is on sale for $9.89.

Today, when I was at Walmart, I saw that mascara is only $8.47 and with my coupon, it came out to $6.47 plus tax.  BONUS!!! I immediately purchased it in blue.  I can't wait to try it out tomorrow.  Stay tuned for my review.

Marques' 1st birthday / Daga's new house visit

After the adult party on Saturday night, we headed to Ajax for Marques' 1st birthday/Halloween party.  Here is the little monkey or birthday celebrant. He never complained or cried once being in this fuzzy costume.  I think he got upset when his mom decided to take it off of him.

Here is Brexton (Darryl and Clecia's son) and Marques (Jimmy and Adaiah's son). Isn't it hilarious that they were both dressed up as monkeys?


Well, you saw us dressed up as Alex from a Clockwork Orange but we knew that we couldn't dress like that for a kids party. We put together these fairy costume last minute.  Wings are so much fun!!!


After the party, we made a quick stop to the Daga's new house in Ajax.  It's such a cute little home. It's not massive but it's perfect for their family. I got to spend a bit of time with the happiest baby I know. Callum is almost about to walk. It's crazy how time flies. Soon he will be as big a Bray and Bray will then be 12.  Oh my goodness, I am thinking too far ahead!!!


Halloween Costume: A Clockwork Orange

This year since we decided to go to Reinard and Marlon's Halloween party, Mike, Julie, Maureen and I thought we should do a group costume. And, oh do group costumes ever work. We were asked many times by random people at the party who we didn't know us if they could take our picture.

But the costume is not complete unless you have the trademark eye!
