This weekend My Heart and I caught up on some TV watching which included So You Think You Can Dance. So many of the performances were B-O-R-I-N-G! But then this one came up and I was blown away. I can't believe how emotional dance can be (I mean, I can believe it but geezus the tears!). This truly told a story and it was heart wrenching. I hope they do this live on the tour.
We just got through a gnarly couple of weeks at work so I wanted to thank those who really worked hard to make it all happen. And what better way then to throw a Christmas party - I mean who doesn't love Christmas!? There was cake, alcohol, decorations, presents, the whole nine yards! I think we all had a really great time :-)
The summer has been a whirl wind so far! So much going on, so little time to blog about it!
I did want to say that I have awesome friends (but we already knew that). One of them has a friend who works at OPI and she sent me the most amazing care package! We had met briefly in the past but ran into one another at a BBQ recently and got to talking about their new matte line that I was excited about. So she sent it to me - before it even hit the stores (and with a million other amazing products). I'm wearing La Paz-itively Hot Matte today and I AM IN LOVE! So awesome :-)
Went to see Harry Potter at the Chinese last night... it was an odd experience. I parked at Hollywood & Highland, as you walk up the stairs and out to the street you pass through the Kodak Theater entrance which is lined with stores and along some walls are giant ads. As I was passing a Louis Vuitton ad there was a family standing in front of it. Mom, Dad and 2 little girls (maybe 8 and 6 years oldish). This family was probably on vacation because most people at Hollywood & Highland are. This family was also having their family vacation photo taken in front of a giant Louis Vuitton ad. Does anyone else find that odd???
Ok, so got to the line where My Heart was waiting with some Baja Fresh for me and scarfed it down before going into the theater because no outside food is allowed in. When we got into the theater it was a madhouse of people but a lot of the seats were still empty. That was because one person was saving an entire row of seats for their friends/family. It was ridiculous! My Heart almost had to throw down with this one jerk who told him to beat it when he wanted to sit in an empty row the jerk was trying to guard.
We finally found a couple of seats not being saved and settled in for the trailers. Only to be distracted by an awful smell that was similar to vomit of cheese & jalapenos. Then the madness began. I can't remember what was shouted first but it was loud and directly behind me. As I turned to see who the perpetrator was the smell got stronger. So of course, we sat directly in front of some strange woman who was all alone, eating the most disgustingly fragrant food (that was most certainly NOT bought from the concession stand) and shouting at the characters on the screen for the entire movie. "Yea, Luna! That's my girl!" "Oh no you didn't!" "Don't trust that crazy bitch!" I think she was crazy and I'm most certain everyone else felt it too because nobody said a word to her. And before the final scene was concluded she was out of her seat and leaving the theater. Now tell me that's not odd!?
As for the movie, I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who's not yet seen it but plans to. But I will say I kinda wish I hadn't re-read the book right before seeing. I'm not a fan of David Yates (the director) but his work on this was decent although flat.
These gorgeous heels on are Gilt.com right now... Oh, how I long for them! I hate this not shopping thing. By the way, did I mention I'm trying to not spend so much money on things so that we can remodel our kitchen and master bathroom? But these beauties were once $695 and are now only &198!
Also, I have new motivation to start getting shit done around our house... 1) Dad-in-Law has built some great shelves for us and is in progress with more! 2) We are thinking of throwing a fancy Halloween party! 3) We are having my family over for Thanksgiving!
So now I've gotta get back on track with decorating... just gotta listen to the sage advise of the Lil Bee and focus on one room at a time :-)
OPI is coming out with a matte line this summer - some of their most popular colors - and I'm kinda loving on it... Check out the Vampy & Varnish Blog for a peek at what the colors actually look like on.
Less than a week ago a group of random people gathered to create this video and show our support for Iranians in need of a voice. We want to give a voice to the voiceless and this is just the first step.
