haley-o and i always talk about how our readers are so different. sure, there are a few overlaps, but for the most part, she has her readers and i have mine. which is great – because i love all of you guys – but surprising, since she and i fancy ourselves a lot alike. sure, she would chose Will over Colin when choosing a Farrell. and sure, she has a litter of cats and i have a litter of kids.

but we both are celebrity-obsessed, we both worked at  [insert company name here] (and love to shmooze about the co-workers…the hot ones, the ones who dress like they turn tricks after work, the ones we love, the ones we are sure can’t stand us), we both love starbucks, we’re short, we’re jewish, we have little monkey toddlers who do and say very similar things, we both work for urbanmoms.ca, and we both post really awful pictures of me.

if you don’t believe me, go check out her site. go on, get!

so, last night we went out to celebrate the birthday of me. see, i told you i can stretch it out… the husband and my dad had planned out this fantastic surprise that would have blown me away. they were planning to fly in and surprise me at Springrolls. i likely would have died of shock. but, they had to cancel at the last minute because my stepmom was sick in bed. boo. would have been a really great surprise, but, really, the thought was what mattered.

well, we decided to go out anyway….me and husband, Tova and Frye, Jack and Ilana (with baby Jadyn in tow…but she slept through the party) and Haley and Josh. now, Haley doesn’t like to mix friends…but everyone got along swimmingly.

and kept ordering me drinks. the waitress threw together a shot – that had now officially been dubbed “the Ali” – chocolate, butterscotch ripple, and vodka. it was to die for. i had two of ‘em.

Here’s me and miss Haley-O. Can we talk about this double chin for a moment??! must have just been the angle. or perhaps the two shots plus the chocolate martini i sucked back last night. Â

  1. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Talk about posting horrible pictures of ME!!!!! And, hee! That picture of us on my blog was THE BEST of both of us — and, it was the only one where you didn’t have a double chin!!! What WAS up with that!? ALI DOESN’T HAVE A DOUBLE CHIN. I refused to post a pic of you with a double chin.

    Helloooo? Look at my nose in that pic you posted!!! REally, though, it’s okay. I always have to take a trillion pics of myself to get one good one — SOOOOO unphotogenic am.

    Josh and I had a GREAT time with you and your friends. :) So happy we got to celebrate with you!!! Now, to get the kids together! Bella and the monkey would totally be a HOOT together now!

    yet another thing we have in common!!! we have to take about a million photos to get one decent one. why is that??? grrr. love ya, hales. mwah! ~Ali

  5. That sounds like an excellent drink, though I would have a tough time explaining the Ali part. You need to do your shots faster! And I am excited to say I am a reader in both camps.

  7. Leave it to a step-mom to fuck up a birthday party! LOL Alright, I’m just kidding. (I’m a stepmom… AND i’m evil)
    As far as friends go, diversity is a good thing. And even if it isn’t, it gives you people to make fun of! HA!

  8. You have now given me a new shot to try tonight. It will be my first night out since my spawn has decided to get a cold and molars at the same time. I am ready to slaughter some sheep and offer her up to the Dark Lord. Or, take the easy road, and have some of those shots! :) Great pics.

  9. Yum…sounds like a good shot. I’ll have to try an Ali sometime. LOL.
    And WHAT double chin are you speaking of? You hardly have a double chin…girl, please. You can have a little of my REAL double chin if you’d like. I’d love to share!
    Have a great weekend, and Happy Birthday once again. :)

  14. Hangovers, bleh. But I think you look super-cute. I always fear mixing groups of my friends together, mainly because I’m afraid that they’ll like each other more than they like me. I’m petty!
