my weekend in photos.

wow, i've been bad about blogging lately. like really bad. it's been pretty much the same old around here, with the exception of this past weekend, so i wanted to share some photos from the past few days. (i finally have enough to do a weekend in photos post, ha.)

first up, thursday:

i went and saw the dark knight rises premiere on thursday with my friends tim & joe. i was SO excited to see this movie, having bought my ticket to the midnight showing almost a month ago & even taking off work the following friday. i knew it would be almost 4am by the time i would get home and into bed (i was right), and i have a hard time functioning with less than 6 hours of sleep.

so, no spoilers here, but this movie was amazing! like, really, really amazing. i am such a huge fan of the dark knight, and i want to watch both movies again, but i think i like the dark knight rises the best out of nolan's trilogy. i know, that's a big statement, but it's true.

(i'm truly saddened by the events at the aurora midnight premiere in colorado. going to a movie was always considered a "safe" & fun experience, at least to me, and it's so frightening/angering that someone could take that away from people in such a vicious act. i really think chris nolan said it best, and my thoughts and prayers are with those victims & their families.)

(not my photos obviously)

chester bought me tickets for the michael jackson immortal tour for christmas, and i was so excited! i'm a huge fan of jackson's, as i've said on this blog a few times, so this was the perfect gift. and i do have to say, it was worth the wait! it was such a good show, and i would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes MJ's music as much as i do :) chester & i really had a great time. 

i found the above photos through a google search: the first one was taken during "billie jean" (my all time favorite song!), the second during "smooth criminal", and the third during the finale song, "black and white".

i also took these of us before the show:


my dear friend tim decided a while back that come july, he was packing up his things & heading out west to live with his brother in LA. the final weekend with him came up a lot quicker than i was expecting or hoping, but we celebrated his last night in IL in style! we had the 1914 room at red ivy (in chicago) rented out and partied the night away with our best friend. it was such a good time, and i know tim appreciated every single person who was able to attend. he is currently on the road, going through utah the last him he texted us. i miss him so much already, but i know this will be a good move for him, and i wish him the best! i'm hoping that chester & i can make it out to california before the new year. fingers crossed!

haha, i wasn't kidding when i said it was a busy weekend! luckily we had no plans on sunday, so we were able to relax. and i caught up on my hbo shows :)

i hope you all had a great weekend! 'til next time...

  1. I completely LOVED The Dark Knight Rises! My boyfriend and I have been geeking out about it since last summer and we were not disappointed. We saw at the IMAX theater @ Navy Pier and will probably see it again on Friday, haha. :)
