Giving my heart away

I’ve got 10 events in 10 days at work so I’m reposting some old content I find funny.  New content will resume on February 6th.

Reposted from 2016:

 

In retrospect, bringing glowing hearts necklaces and blinky heart pins to Cupid’s (Bar) Crawl in downtown Mountain View was one of the BEST IDEAS I’VE EVER HAD.

The event organizers planned and advertised the event well and a butt load of people showed up in Valentine’s gear to celebrate.

One guest sewed his own “Sweet Heart” pants – he was literally covered in sweet hearts from the waist down.  Another guest wore white wings and a red dress and looked every bit the Lolita Cupid.  I think there was even a “Queen of Hearts” costume in there.

By and large, an incredibly creative crowd.

I got a ride to Krunch’s place.  I didn’t want to risk driving with a few beers in me.  I warned Krunch, “If you see a gin and tonic in my hand, SLAP IT AWAY!”

Here’s Krunch and I, waiting outside Molly Magees.

Notice how I look so much taller than him?  Yes, that’s because I was wearing 8″ heels that LITERALLY HOBBLED ME by the end of the evening.

You should’ve seen me trying to dance in those shoes, all the while my feet SCREAMING at me to CUT IT OUT!

So, I didn’t make it as long as I would have liked in the evening, but at least I left because I was hobbled, and not because I drank to much.

Folks, this is what I call PROGRESS!

Cupid

So I’m putting together a Cupid Costume for the Cupid (Bar) Crawl.

It goes a little something like this:

Gorgeous red corset:

Matching red tutu:

Red fairy wings, as if there’s not enough red already:

A bow and arrow, because love comes with weapons, no doubt:

You didn’t think I was going to tell you what it is, did you?  Not!

 

New Year’s Eve soiree

Okay, so I’m planning on getting dressed super fancy for New Year’s Eve this year.

Last year I wore a dress that fit me horribly.  It was way too large and the top kept falling down.

Good for the guests, bad for me.

This year I’ve planned ahead and will be getting my dress early.

Here are the two front runners:

I’m really drawn to the blue, but the gold is stunning as well (so I got both).

I’m also a little bit addicted to THIS dress (because of the color):

You can never go wrong in red, can you?  I just read that men are more attracted to women wearing red than in any other color because it symbolizes sexual readiness.

Ha!

Looks like I’ll have to go to SEVERAL parties -OR- have wardrobe changes!
