A Saturday Night Out

I am a confirmed homebody. I hate going out. Ok, hate is a strong word but it's always so much effort and I always get really excited about going out on the town and it never lives up to my expectations so I'm always like "bleurgh" when I end up agreeing to go out.

This Saturday night was an exception. We were going out to a dessert restaurant (getting to cross another thing off my '101 in 1001' list) and to a comedy show afterwards. Confession time... I did not bring my camera, nor was the lighting conducive to amazing FB profile pictures... so NO awesome pictures. Well, there were awesome pics aka some extra special sexy ones of me. Case in point:
My girl roomie was in the picture with me, making an equally attractive face but you know, there's only so much hotness that this blog can take. Plus I feel weird putting people onto the internet so I took her out.

Also I want to get a hold of video footage of me. I unfortunately introduced my boy roomie to the practice of pretending to take a photo of someone... but actually taking a video and seeing how long the people will hold their pose for. I think it's his new favourite thing to do. And he got a great one of me, literally seconds after I'd just finished talking about this phenomenon. There is a website where people have uploaded their videos of this happening and I can no longer find it. Does anyone know the one I mean???

It was fun getting to see what everyone else picked out. I got a Macademia nut and caramel shortbread slice. It was just ok. I should have gone with my gut instinct of 'chocolate brownie'. I mean, don't get me wrong- it was beautiful and yummy, it was just unfortunately surrounded and drowned in a moat of caramel sauce which I don't really like and so it kind of ruined the actual shortbread slice. I am not a food blogger, therefore I do not have pictures of my food.

I am also not a fashion blogger, hence no photo of my awesome outfit. Seriously I was so impressed with it. It was a dress from Target and I jazzied it up with accessories and it looked great! At the end of the night, I took my best 'fashion blogger' photo. This is the result.

I accidentally cut off my own head. You can see my school bag and running shoes by my feet. You can barely see my boots. This photo is pretty much a how 'not to' do self photos. It makes me laugh so I thought I'd share it!!

After food, we went to see Tripod. This is a musical comedy trio and a band that me and my friends have been following since high school! Almost ten years!!! This is all part of my local festival and I even got a cool stamp!
This is the symbol of the festival... yeah, I don't know what it means either. BUT they'd put up a tent in the middle of the city and inside, it was beautifully set up with fairy lights it was like an old fashioned circus big top. It was really beautiful. There were all these rows of seats and by the time we arrived, there were only seats in the last row left. Not cool. But my friend Kristy is awesome and went and talked to the bouncer and scored us this sweet booth right up the front of the stage!!! It was empty and we just went and sat in it and pretended like we owned it and somehow we got away with it :)

The group were just as funny as I remembered and they sang some classic oldies as well as some new ones. This is one of my faves that they sang last night, I think it's one of their best. Please listen and enjoy!

So, I might go out and do cool stuff but I'll always be a little homebody at heart. Maybe one day New York will let me come back and some more of its coolness will rub off onto me and I will ONE DAY be cool!!!!

Your evening sounds so fun!

I love your outfit!

The dress is amazing!

My brother just introduced me to Tripod!

I hope the dessert bar was Freestyle!

Okay enough exclamatory statements...!

Kristy said...

I had such a good time last night friend!!! Spending the evening with my three favourite singing funny men and your lovely self :)

Instead of writing my essay this afternoon I have spent the day on YouTube watching vintage clips of the boys. Love them!

P.s Your outfit was smoking hot!! You must wear tights more often miss!!

Ok I have way too many exclamation marks as well....must stop now....night xx

Sounds like SUCH a fun time!! A dessert bar?! Cool!! We have a Chocolate Bar in Cleveland but I've never been there...I heard it's good though.

And responding to your comment about the movie/book...I don't think the movie did the book justice. If I didn't read the book before hand I would have been lost and would have hated Dex and Rachel. I mean it was a cute movie, but the plot just jumped around so much. In the book, Rachel narrates it a lot, and she flashes back to Law school and when her and Darcy were little and it's really a TONNNNN better than the movie. If Rachel had narrated the movie, it would have been better. Also, in the book, John Krasinski's character lives in London the whole time and there's another character Hilary who is Rachel's better friend--they just combined that character for whatever reason. I really suggest reading the book, you might like it better :)

happy Sunday and thanks a bunch for visiting me. ♥

I'm a homebody, too, but I think I could make an exception for a dessert bar. I mean, I like going out for a drink or something with a few friends now and again, but NOT dancing. I'm a terrible dancer. And I am always weirded out when guys I don't know try to dance with me... ew. Also, love the dress/outfit even if the picture did cut off your head :).

And I had never heard of Tripod, but I just watched the video and it's HILARIOUS. I will look up more of their stuff.

Until this very moment, I had no idea dessert restaurants even existed. What a wonderful idea. I must find one nearby and experience all it has to offer.

I love all of your photos, especially the funny ones.

Haha you are so funny! Yeah I used to like going out but now I am more of a homebody too! Yeah you probably should have gotten that brownie! That kind of happened to me at a crepe place. I really wanted a dessert crepe but I chose a breakfast one...should have gotten a dessert one haha. And I have no clue about that website, good luck!
