Speaking of Halloween costumes, Greta got to test drive her Queen Elsa costume over the weekend at the Friends of the Burbank Library's very cool Princess Book Party. Held at the Burbank Library's central branch on Glenoaks, the event featured Princess trivia, bingo, crafts, cookies, gift bags and even a visit from everyone's favorite Disney Princess/Queen du jour, Queen Elsa from Frozen! Hooray!
As you can see, Greta had an awesome time. And despite the fact that there are already piles of library books scattered all over her bedroom, we came home with another big old batch of new ones as well. Now if I could just remember when they're all due back at the library, all would be right with the world. Either way, enjoy the pics!
Yikes! I'm cool with sexy nurses, pirates and maids and shit, but when I heard that Yandy.com was selling sexy Frozen Halloween costumes, I got seriously creeped out. I mean, at least sexy Anna and Elsa costumes make sense, because, well, like it or not, sexy/slutty Disney Princess Halloween costumes have been around for years, but, Sexy Olaf? Yuck. Double yuck!
The worst thing is that it's not even that creative! Mrs. Yeti and I are working on homemade Olaf and Princess Anna costumes (to go with Greta's Queen Elsa ensemble from Costco!) as we speak, and let me tell ya, my non-sexy, hand-sewn Olaf is gonna kick slutty Olaf's trashy ass. So, watch out, Yandy.com! 🙂
Yesterday, August 5th, was our 19th wedding anniversary. And though I am having a hell of time locating some pictures of the actual event — or pictures of literally anything that took place before the digital era for that matter! — to scan and post online, I realized that one of the coolest gifts we got that day was literally staring me in the face.
So, what better way to commerate our special day than with a picture of the super cool “calaca couple” that my little sister Brittany gave us as a gift. Brittany might not be here to wish us well this week, but, her beautiful gift has been hanging in a tiny glass ofrenda in our living room since the day we got married. So, thanks, little sister!
And happy anniversary, Mrs. Yeti! As Greta said last night at dinner: “Here's to the wedding day celebration where we eat like royalty!” Sounds good to me…
Here, as promised, are some of the best pics from Greta’s fifth birthday party at the log cabin in Verdugo Park. As you can see, it was a Princess-themed party with the guests (and their parents!) encouraged to come in costume as their favorite princess or pirate and a royal good time was had by all. Enjoy the pics…and happy birthday, sweetie!
