The TV Guide: Say Cheese!

Yesterday turned out to be a whole lot more fun than I thought it would ... Le GangTM decided that we needed to take a family portrait together so (after a bunch of scheduling conflicts) we finally decided that yesterday would be our photo session at the Sears Portrait Studio. We decided to wear different color American Apparel track jackets as our outfits and convened en masse in Santa Monica for the shoot. Without further ado, here are some of the pics that we took:

There was a bit of stress getting everything coordinated but once we got in front of the cameras we had a blast! The pics came out so well, I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome. We ordered all of these pics in various configurations so I can't wait to see the final products.

In between shoots, some of us sneaked away to take our own fun pics around the Sears Portrait Studio:

If you can believe it, I ordered one of the group shots (the one with the paint buckets and brush) be made into a full-size, knit throw blanket! Ha! I can't wait for it to be made :)

After the shoot, Paul had to jet off to meet up with Corey but the rest of us went out to dinner at Baja Cantina in Venice, CA for dinner:

Yes, that monstrously large coconut margarita was all mine for the drinking ... and it was well worth the numerous brain freezes to get to the bottom of that massive tub o' booze.

After dinner, Kirsten ran off to meet up with some boys (hopefully to smooch on) and Mike peaced out for home ... then the rest of us went over to Darion's place to play a little Rock Band ...

... cut to 4 hours later, I'm still shrieking on the mic, David was kicking ass on the drums and Darion was rawkin' out on the guitar. Poor Steph and Alek ... they looked like they wanted to shove sharpened pencils into their ears with every song we did. We had a blast tho, as these pics can attest.

This afternoon, David and I are hoping to head over to Adriana's place for her birthday shindig and then we're thinking about meeting up with some of the guys to see a movie. David hasn't seen Sex and the City yet ... and I know that we'd be happy to see it again with him :) I hope all y'alls weekend is going well ... we are having a blast!!!
