Kristina's Bridal Shower...

As you may or may not know, my younger sister is getting married next month and I am her matron of honor. And because of this privilege she bestowed upon me, it was my job to throw her the bridal shower of her dreams
. Thanks to the financial backing of our mother and her future mother-in-law I was able to pull off a not too shabby shindig, which we threw in the party room of a restaurant here on Long Island for her and her guests to enjoy.
As you can kinda tell, it was your typical wine themed bridal shower with food, drinks, games, silly hats, etc. Plus a beautiful "I Love Lucy" (1951-1957) themed cake that I bought as a present for my Lucille Ball loving sister (FYI - She started to cry when she saw it, I'm really good at making her cry in both good and bad ways).

I don't know what the guests would say but I think I threw one nice ass bridal shower for my sister. And I know that at least she agrees because she called me when she got home and was on the phone with me for almost twenty minutes telling me how much she loved it. Which made me so happy because I put a lot of thought and effort into it for her.

Lisa's Baby Shower...

For those of you that may or may not know, my cousin Lisa is pregnant. So this past weekend my sister, mother and I attended her baby shower which was thrown for her by her sister-in-law.

As you can see from the pictures below it was your typical baby shower with food, games, present opening, photo booth props and lots of pink because she is having a girl (Whose name she revealed to us at the end of the party). 
Despite me not being big into things like this (I'm not a fan of showers of any sort and I had Lisa's baby shower this past weekend and I'm throwing my sister a bridal shower this upcoming weekend) I had a really nice time but most importantly, Lisa loved it. So it was a good day.

How do you feel about showers of any sort? Love them? Hate them? Lemme know.

8 Tour | Incubus At Jones Beach...

As you all may or may not know, Incubus is not only my favorite band but my sister's also. So every time they come through New York on tour we go to see them. And as you can probably guess, this was the case this past Wednesday night when they played Jones Beach Theater here on Long Island.
My sister, her fiancé, Nicole and I (And almost everyone we went to high school with apparently according to Facebook and Instagram) went to rock out to Incubus with Jimmy Eat World (Whom I didn't pay attention to until they played "The Middle" and "Sweetness") on their 8 Tour.

As always, Incubus was amazing. They just put on such a great show and are so incredible to watch live -- Trust me I know, I've seen them live eleven times in the past fourteen years. In addition to that, I love going with my sister because we always have a great time no matter what the weather is like (When we saw Incubus with Linkin Park [Can we talk about how incredibly sad it is that Chester Bennington committed suicide?] in 2012 on the Honda Civic Tour, it was so gross outside and we had to wear ponchos but it was still a great time) or whatever else is going on.

For any of you interested, here is the setlist they played that night. I thought it was a good mix of their older hits and newer songs.

Setlist
Love in a Time of Surveillance
Warning
Nimble Bastard
Anna Molly
Glittebomb
Megalomaniac

Wish You Were Here

Photo Issues...

Unbeknownst to me Photobucket, the website I've been using to host my pictures forever, changed their policy on 3rd party hosting and now I have to go back into probably all of my posts to fix the photos in them. Which obviously does not have me in a good mood, I'm actually pretty fucking angry about it. So as soon as I calm down I'm going to start the task of fixing everything, so I apologize in advance for the appearance of everything. Thank you all in advance for baring with me through this, I will hopefully have everything fixed soon.
