Bite Me Am I Dreaming...

Or is that little Miss Dakota Fanning all grown up? I just had to write a post about how gorgeous and mature Dakota Fanning looks at the Twilight: New Moon LA Premiere. Although the other girls looked good on the red carpet, Dakota won the race in black high heels. True I'm not a huge fan of the Twilight series and no midnight watcher of the movies, I am somewhat excited to see New Moon. Especially for Miss Fanning's role as Jane, a high ranking Italian royal vampire family named, The Volturi. The movie premieres tonight at midnight for all the Twifans. For the rest of us, November 20th.

Ben and I went to the Mason Jennings concert at In The Venue Saturday night. One word...Amazing. It was one of the best concerts I've been to. The doors opened at 7 and thankfully the opening band, The Wheel from Colorado, was on time and really good. The had a good keyboardist and a cool stand up bass. After they finished their 45 min music set they set up for the next band. Being told previously from my brother there was going to be two opening bands, when Mason Jennings got on stage I paused, did a double take and exclaimed "Wait that is Mason Jennings!" The crowd erupted and the show started. Mason Jennings was of course, terrific. He played a few of his older songs like Butterfly and Nothing and a lot of his newer stuff that I have yet to put on my ipod. But I literally fell in love with him and his music all over again. After an amazing show of course they came back for an encore, and then again for a second encore where they played two awesome sets. I especially liked when they played 'The Weight' by The Band while Mason Jennings sang the first verse, his bassist sang the second, his back up guitarist the third and his drummer the forth and finally they all finished the last verse together. The whole concert gave me perma-grin for the rest of the night. If you want a good natural high, go to a Mason Jennings concert.

P.S. Sorry the pictures are bad, once again I forgot my camera and my phone was the only thing I had

It starts with 'Today' and ends with MLIA.

My new favourite site is My Life Is Average. Its a website for people to post average things that happen to them in their normal daily lives. Much better than the emo loving FLM(F My Life), which is sad and depressing. MLIA is uplifting and makes me giggle at work. True, the website has been around for a very long time, but I'm just barly discovering the joy it brings me durring my boring and average days. Thank you MLIA, thank you.

Here Come The Holidays!

I'm officially welcoming the Holiday Season with open arms! True its not even Thanksgiving yet but I can't help but secretly listen to Christmas music and write up my Christmas lists. The first for what I'm getting people the second for myself. Surprisingly this year the list for what I'm getting people is longer than my own list. But I have decided to try something new for gifts this year. I am attempting to make them, yes I said make them. I will post about how they turn out and what I will be doing. Also here is a list of the Christmas presents I would like...-Simple Sewing With A French Twist
-Ikea Bed
-Anthropologie Dress
-Boots from Urban Outfitters
-Everwild by Neal Shusterman
-Wallet from Urban Outfitters

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing Halloween. Mine was very good! Ben and I, or Solid Snake and a hockey player, went out on all hallows eve to enjoy the festivities with some friends. We spent the night hanging out, playing beer pong, Rock Band and dancing in a strobe light. Other than that my Halloween was uneventful, sadly no pumpkin carving or Trick-or-Treating for me. But the next holiday is Thanksgiving and I cannot wait!

P.S. Pictures coming soon!
