I apologize for the lack of posts the past week.  I am dealing with an office move and this morning I woke up with my first case of pinkeye.

We’ve Moved!

Please find me on!  Don’t forget to update your Google Reader, RSS feeds, Blog Lovin’, etc.  If you receive Suburbanette posts through email, you will no longer receive them.  See ya on the flip side!

Wii Had a Party!

4 Nov

The Wii has been a saving grace in the Suburbanette-Suburbanbro household.  On cold wintery days, we rely on it to stream “Lost” on Netflix and to break a sweat with epic “Just Dance” battles.  That is why I was SUPER excited when Brand About Town contacted me about hosting an over-the-top Wiii ice cream party to demo the new Wii Play Motion game.

Twenty guests ages two to thirty-two crammed into our tiny apartment for a two hour party that ended up lasting SEVEN HOURS.  I’ve been to weddings where people have cleared out faster!  I think this stands as a testament to Wii’s people-gathering power (and my awesome buffalo chicken dip).  Wii Play Motion makes use of the new Wii Motion Plus control and has up to four players compete in a series of mini games!  The games are fairly basic but surprisingly addictive.  Who would have known that virtual skipping rocks would be so much fun?  I am not even joking, during this particular game, large groups of people gathered around the television to cheer on their favorite players as they threw fake rocks in a fake lake.  People were more excited about this game than the actual REDSKINS game!

Brand About Town also provided us with tons of extra goodies such Coldstone ice cream, ALL of the fixings one person could possibly want (even strawberry syrup — I can’t wait to make strawberry milk with it!), and parting gifts for each guests!  Can I say best party ever?  Thank you Brand About Town and Nintendo for making my snowy HalloWIIn weekend a WII-ner!

Also — to give my party a Suburbanette flair I created an old school Gameboy photo prop that everybody had fun posing in!  Doesn’t everybody look so cute?

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain

The highlight of my Halloween was getting to see my niece dressed up in her bumblebee costume!  She was so excited about trick-or-treating that she tried to sleep with her bucket of candy.

The Unicorn

2 Nov

No Glee costume is complete without a “Unicorn”!  Here is mine, the saddest little unicorn who ever lived.

The Monster Mash

2 Nov

This Halloween, Rob and I found ourselves at a random zombie filled shindig.  With our Glee costumes, we were literally the “life” of the party!

I purchased my Cheerio costume online but Rob’s Dalton Academy Warbler jacket was made by me!  The blazer, is actually a Burberry original that I picked up at Goodwill for less than $10!  I felt bad hot gluing ribbon all over it but I think the whole thing turned out really well.
