A big week

A week ago, Saturday the 24th was the AFSP "Out of the Darkness" walk. It was so amazing to see all of those faces, some new, some old walking for what they believe in and what they hope for. We raised over $100,000 and everyone worked so hard to get there. It was an emotional yet uplifting day that I look forward to every year. 

yeah..that's my brother..

After the walk, my mom and I met up with my cousin at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for the "Dia de los Muertos" celebration. Now, usually the Day of the Dead is on Nov.1st but for some reason they had to have it a week before. Let me tell you...it was so flippin amazing to see all those thousands of people get so into it with their costumes, make up, characters, and not to mention the alters. I was so inspired that I felt out of place in regular 'walk' clothes and no make up that we HAD to do something about that. My mom ended up buying me this AMAZING authentic hand sewn shirt from Mexico and we both got our faces painted. The concert was amazing, with the most unreal stage I have EVER seen. It was such a funtastic day!!

Lila Downs was one of the performers with a range better than Mariah (oh yes I did!) 
go to 1:37. This is just her belting a teeny bit of what her actual potential is..amazing

and another band called "Santa Cecilia" was also incredible. That chick can sing her bloody heart out

such an amazing day.

The stage...right?!?! I know..

The rest of the week was spent working as an extra, which is fun but pays shit. On Tuesday a couple of us went to Arclight to see "This is it". And it was so amazing and emotional and and and and I miss Michael Jackson. What a beautiful human being.

Thursday was a good friend's bday. We went to a local, valley bar called Off Kilt and partied it up. 

The birthday boy...I'm not even gonna tell you what he went as..

my bro and my mom. Yeah she parties with us. Hardcore!

I'm not even gonna pretend that that's not funny.

Ok on to HALLOWEEN!!! It started out a little rough. A bunch of us ladies got together and wanted to dress up as all the Disney boy characters. You know, cuz we're all pretty sick of girls (in the words of David) try to "out slut" each other. I mean..it was cool like 5 years ago, but you can only see a slutty nurse or cop so much before it's like "ok ladies...time to get creative". Anyway, things happened, plans changed but I was SOL cuz I already had most of my costume done. It was down to 2 of us. I went as Aladdin and my cousin Vanessa went at The Beast. It was kind of a lame night, we ended up going to Universal Citywalk to a dueling piano bar called Howl at the MoonIt's actually a fun place, there's just better things to do on Halloween. BUUUUUUUUUUT the cool thing was I entered the costume contest and won FIRST PLACE!!! WOOOOO! I got 100 bucks and a bunch of VIP passes to come back. So that made it worth it :) 

This is the only pic I have so far but I took a bunch more. Hope everyone had a bitchin week! <3
