Mid-Day Photo Fun February 2, 2011

I know there’s drama going around in the blog world about ‘Teen Mom’. But I personally love the show from a pure entertainment standpoint. I think it’s sad these girls have to deal with these huge life issues at such a young age. And I know they’re partly being exploited by doing so (they make a decent paycheck by doing the show). But it also makes me more confident in my own future parenting skills someday.

Anyways, at the end of each episode, this picture comes up as part of the credits:

It makes me laugh every time I see it. Last summer, Irving and I went golfing with Erika and Timmy and we took almost the same picture!

Doesn’t it look almost the same?! Sometimes it’s nice to keep the mid-day posts light, what can I say.


I’m working on getting some more of my Oscar pictures up in the next week or so. Stay tuned!


A Holiday Recap–Christmas Eve December 31, 2010

I know, I have been a negligent blogger as of late. I was also a pretty bad Christmas vacation photographer. But I have lots of memories and warm moments to share.

It all started way back last week. I had to pack up all my presents and fly them with me to Boston. It probably would have been easier to wrap them when I got there, but I’m a sucker for wrapping up surprises.
That gnome wrapping paper was from Ikea about four years ago. I FINALLY used it all up this year!

All packed up and ready to go! Thank goodness for Southwest’s free baggage allowance!

A few of my friends and I have a tradition of getting together for breakfast on Christmas Eve day. This year, we were also joined by the gorgeous baby Harper!

She’s at a fun smiley age now. I was in love.

Katie, me, Harper and Shelby!


I already miss all of them!


Then I spent the afternoon hanging out with my sisters, wrapping more presents and getting ready for Christmas Eve! My whole family and all the cousins head to my grandparents house. Now that everyone is getting older, it’s so much fun.


We’re also pretty big on photoshoots. HAHA

We forced invited the boys to join in too!

My family!

We also have a weird side!



We sang lots of Christmas Carols before we ate!

We had a great buffet for dinner. Everyone brought something. Since our family is Lebanese, we always have amazing middle eastern food.

It was so nice to be with my sisters!!


Two of my favorite gifts to give this year….

The Golf Sweater T-Shirt!

And our 2010 Vancouver Olympics jacket that we picked up in February in the Olympic Village!

Merry Christmas Eve!!


Le Reve = The Dream September 7, 2010

No offense guys, but Irving and I totally do Vegas like we’re retired old folks.

But first… Dunkin’s Coffee (obviously)!


We convinced Erika and Timmy to Play BINGO with us!!!

Yea, we have our own dabbers. What?


You know how all the old people have their Bingo good luck charms? So do we!
We picked seats 7 and 11! (July 11th = Anniversary!)


Plus Reese was supposed to bring me luck!

Whoo Hoo Free Shirley Temples! (with two cherries!)

Sadly, none of us won any money, but man was it fun!

We had dinner over at the Silverton, and check out this Gelato Display!

Looks harmless, right?

Until you get to the Mango Display!

HAHA. It’s the little things, my friends!

As part of our hotel package, we got two free tickets to Le Reve at the Wynn. There was a ticket mishap and the Wynn pretty much gave our tickets away to someone else… but after a half an hour of waiting around, it all got sorted out.

The drama continued after we sat down.  Some seats were double booked, people were standing in the aisles, people kept getting up and sitting down. It was quite distracting at first. The show was already starting and people were standing in my way. grrr a huge pet peeve!

We were actually quite disappointed in the show itself. Maybe we were just comparing it to KA from the night before (which was just amazing). Most cirque shows are fantastical and they bring you inside a fantasy world that makes it easy to open your imagination… this show didn’t allow me to leave my reality. I never “left” my seat like I did in KA. Le Reve definitely didn’t live up to my expectations.

  • The music was a little too 80s heavy
  • There wasn’t much “cirque” performing, it was mostly diving and dancing
  • The water effects were cool, but it slowed the performers down
  • There was a live band doing all the music, but we thought it was recorded until the very end. I think if we realized it was live we might have appreciated it more.
  • I didn’t really care for the costumes either, I thought they were a little too strange for the type of show it was.

All that being said, it was entertaining, but not cirque worthy. I’m a tough critic.

Unsatisfied with Le Reve, we choreographed our own cirque show!
