I am actually almost done with my Christmas shopping, but accidentally did a little shopping for myself. I recently got the box set of Family Guy even though I own all the separate seasons, but it really was a great deal and I'm missing some disks (thanks to college) and I didn't have the 2 movies. Plus it comes in this hilarious Stewie head, hee hee. (pic by Mikey)

Oh and I got a dress....a white dress....that I'll wear next July...offline b/c I'm a nerd...Randie and I celebrated with a piece of cake at the coffee shop.

Light Up Night

Pittsburgh has an annual Light Up Night downtown where they light the tree, open the ice skating rink, have fireworks, etc. This year there were thousands of people and it was cold, but nice to see people coming together and enjoying the city. Made me feel all warm and cozy despite the snow.

Afterward we went to Mexico City (over on Smithfield Ave) who have some of the best authentic Mexican food in Pittsburgh (probably the best I've ever eaten). Our friend was photographing the new menu items and we got to taste test them and it's BYOB so we brought a bottle of wine to share with the owners and they did us the honor of sitting down to dinner with us. We finished everything. It was a fabulous night.

Gallery Opening

Our roomie, Randie, and two (maybe 3) other artists are in a show at Sirani Gallery over in Shadyside this Saturday night called Everyday Objects, Everyday Places. The opening is the this Saturday, the 22nd, and goes from 5-9.

"Evocative assemblages made from found objects; perfect masterpieces of trompe l’oeil; whimsical paintings; and photographs that capture real moments in time: these are the hallmarks of the artwork by the award-winning artists Randie Snow, Richard Newill, Amy DiMichele and Ruth Hendricks."

Oh I love halloween!

For our costumes Mike was Sweeney Todd, Randie was Mrs. Lovett and I was Sweeney's wife, Lucy (dead version). Our friend Joey took an awesome picture of Randie & I but here's Mike:

Here is a little glimpse of our halloween party!

This is one of my favorite pics from the night, Alanna and I are in the foreground and Shane and Nikkie are in the back. ( I work with Shane & Alanna)

And here's the girls...Mase was Marge Simpson, Kristen was from the Hitchcock movie The Birds, Nikkie was a studfinder, and I already explained me, we're supposed to be "in character" which is why I'm making a weird face.

And of course Weez dressed up too! (And was out ALL night...he's so grounded)

Being silly (scary) the next morning while cleaning up & Mikey cooking everyone breakfast.
