Another fabulous sunny day in OC! Michael and I went to lunch at BJ’s on Main St. and it was quite lovely!  We had fun people watching and sitting on the patio.

National Ballet of Cuba

Us girlies went to see the National Ballet of Cuba perform on Thursday.  Laurie and I enjoyed dinner at Z Tejas in South Coast Plaza followed by some free See’s chocolates.  We are awesommmeee.  The dancers were fantastic, but I think the dudes outdid the girls this time around.  I don’t know what it was, maybe the girls’ sloppy feet, but the guys were phenomenal.  One ballerina who performed Qitri in Don Q did some toe hops in a circle with her other leg up in the air by her ear.  WHAT!  She was amazing.

Rose Garden

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day off.  Michael and I went to the Exposition Rose Garden across from USC last week.  The views were gorgeous and every rose had a different scent.  It was like walking through the Queen of Hearts’ garden in Alice In Wonderland. Definitely go if you havn’t seen this place.  Very cool.  We enjoyed sandwiches and drinks on a cute little white bench under a gazebo in the middle of thousands of roses.

Snowball 2010

My outfit of choice for the evening: H&M dress, Madden Girl booties, Feather headband, vintage jewelry, and obviously not enough makeup. :p  Or maybe its the red eye eliminator…something looks funky…

Me and my super sexy boyfriend Michael.  Thanks for being my date honey.

Happy 22nd Birthday to Me!

Yesterday, well Nov. 22nd, was my 22nd birthday!  I feel so mature now, but want to clarify that I will still act like a kid for as long as I deem appropriate.

I got so many nice birthday wishes from friends and family.  I feel so loved!

I wore my f21 black dress with my grandmother’s crazy rainbow belt, H&M tights, and Jessica Simpson suede platforms.

Party guests!  My mom got a ton of yummy homemade Mexican food from a little restaurant down the street from my house.  Everyone loved the food and I think we’ll definitely go there again.

Birthday cake!! Chocolate with white frosting…the best.


Fiona eating bday cake with a little beggar

yay!

So…i got this new Canon Rebel for my bday….but i dont know how to use it…so this is me looking angry…i think im gonna get a point and shoot….and it was cold out…

During the day my mom and I went on a total shopping spree.  I spent a TON of $$$ but I had a lot of fun doing it! I bought brown Coach flats from Macy’s  I love them and want to be decked out in designer, so here’s the start!  Bought new sheets for my bed at Macy’s, 4 new shirts from Kohl’s (I know, but my mom loves kohls, the shirts are cute!!), and a new HUGE jewelry box.  Now I can see all of my accessories which is so nice.

This evening the lovely Brittany Willut and I went out on a romantic dinner date for my birthday at BJ’s.  It was deeelish and then we ended the evening with Glee and a photo shoot, of course.  (My shirt is from Kohl’s )

Best friends.  ❤

Anniversary November 3, 2010

My wonderful boyfriend Michael and I have been goin’ out for TWO years!  So Wednesday for our anniversary we went out to a romantic dinner at The Grove LA.  🙂  Michael surprised me with a dozen red roses.  He is soo sweet.  I love him.  ❤


Isn’t he so sexy?

I wore my sparkly vintage dress, f21 skirt, and my new Madden Girl lace up zipper booties.

And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make

The brilliant Cirque artists are at it again!  We went to see LOVE at the Mirage in Las Vegas and it was amazing!!! The show was beautiful, wild, and sad.  Surprisingly they chose to do mostly dance instead of their crazy acrobatics which was kind of a strange choice.  But The Beatles music made it that much better and it was really cool to be there.  We thought they should have told us to take some serious hallucinogenics to really enjoy it, but nevertheless, it made me cry!  At the end the artists gesture to the huge curtains where John, Paul, Ringo, and George’s faces are and it was so sad!  They are such a legendary band and you really feel like they are there performing for you.  Peace and love!
