This weekend was Hubby’s graduation party, organized in secret for weeks, by me. Honestly, it was kinda stressful planning it-There were a million things to do and buy, the backyard had to be spruced up, some people couldn’t be bothered to RSVP, etc. But, in the end it all worked out and lots of people showed, some even came from as far as Toronto. Big thanks to everyone who came and to my mom for helping me out. This was one of the decorations strung up at literally the last minute.
I also ordered a cake for the event-Chocolate with vanilla icing and it was great! (The only downside was the blue icing kinda got smeared everywhere and left our guests with very sexy blue tongues and teeth!)
One funny thing happened-Midway through the party, Hubby and some people were in our backyard socializing and BBQ’ing when there suddenly there were yells and screams. I asked one of his friends what happened after he came inside and he told me that “someone” turned the hose on and Hubby stepped on it, which caused the hose to spray everyone in the backyard, particularly Hubby, who then had to change his clothes. LOL! Woops! (I knew I forgot something…)
The next day, we went out for brunch with some friends and of course, we had to stop by the Comic Book Shoppe a few stores down from the restaurant to browse the items. I quite like this sexy figure of Mystique:
and life-sized Yoda:
I also couldn’t resist buying two more “Preacher” comics, as well as “Hellboy” and “Sin City“. It’s funny, I was never really into comics when I was a teenager. My interest in them started just a couple years ago with my brother’s recommendation to read Preacher and ever since then I’ve started devouring them. (Most women my age read Oprah’s picks, chick-lit or romance novels, while I read comic books and horror novels.) But this stuff makes me happy and that’s what matters right? 🙂
