Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving (to all of you who celebrate it)!!! If not, Happy Thursday!!!

Tim and I managed to get through the terrible holiday traffic in LA on our way back home from Disneyland yesterday (we were stuck in LA for 3 hours!). So we spent most of our actual one year anniversary in a car. Super romantic, right? Tim was a trooper and drove the whole way while I kept bobbing in and out of sleep. ūüė¶

I’ll post some pictures from our trip in a future blog post. For now, here are a couple of outfit shots from the day we decided to dress up fancy! The pictures were taken somewhere in the Hollywood Backlot area of California Adventure. I didn’t even have to put an outfit together for Tim — he’s just naturally dapper like that. I’m so proud! ūüôā

Anyhow, I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and I just want to say I’m super thankful for my family for being awesome and very supportive, to my friends for being great confidants and fun people to be around and have great adventures with, my baby Rory for being the bestest dog EVER, and to my boyfriend Tim — thank you for encouraging me in all my artistic endeavors, for supporting me in all ways possible, and for walking downstairs with me to the vending machines at the Days Inn at 4 in the morning so I could get water for my heartburn/stomachache and for offering to drive around the corner to buy me some Peptobismol despite the fact that you’d have to drive 10 hours back home from Disneyland the following afternoon. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! And Happy One Year Anniversary!

I hope you all get to spend Thanksgiving with amazing people and eat delicious om noms!!!

Cheers,
Nina

The Costume Conundrum

It’s Halloween and I still don’t know what I’m going to dress up as. RUGH. And my plans are still unclear as I was originally going to have a Doctor Who marathon with Jen, Marcos, and Shanice at Shanice’s place, but I haven’t been able to get a hold of Shanice to confirm what time and what we should bring, etc. WHERE ARE YOU WOMAN? CALL ME! As an alternative plan, we’re thinking of going to Dell’Osso Farm’s pumpkin patch to check out the maze. As for my costume, I’m taking the DIY route by just looking through my wardrobe to see what I can put together. It’s been quite frustrating.

My options are…

  • Minnie Mouse
  • Diana Prince (Wonder Woman’s alter ego, think Clark Kent/Superman)
  • Hogwarts school girl
  • 11th Doctor
  • Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I managed to put an 11th Doctor outfit together, but when I put it on I looked all frumpy because my boobies are too effing big. *shakes fist at the heavens*

I was Diana Prince last year, and Karen O the year before… I don’t really want to do repeats. And I don’t know where my Wonder Woman costume is (and the bustier totally stained my white button-up shirt). So I guess I’m left with Minnie Mouse and Hogwarts school girl (which I wore in July for the last Harry Potter movie, you can see that here).

Well, I hope everyone else has a happy and safe Halloween!!!

Now… I gotta go figure this shit out and see if I still have time to make Rory’s Ewok costume… /headache
