Favourite Friday – April 16 Celebrating Year One!

April 16, 2010

AllyG: This will be a short post, as I am afflicted with the pinot grigio. What an amazing birthday! Thanks to everyone that came out, it meant so much to have your support not only tonight, but for our first year of blogging. We love this gig, and we promise much more amazing things to come for year two. Here are some preliminary photos (they are from my camera which resulted in far too many photos of me).

The people you care about the most! LA and Ally! Yay!

Ally and our fave male reader Martin!

Marah and Stephanie

Claudia and Jane

Team FPQT and Haligonia!

Ladies from Extreme Group


We made family come! Ally and her brother, Jamie.

Corinne and Amanda

I wish we could write more, but the bed calls. See you Monday for shoe porn.

Before we jet…Thank you. Seriously. Thank you. All of you who are reading make us feel like rock stars. We had the best time ever tonight, and we feel so proud. Can’t wait to see what year two brings!

Ally and L-A xoxo

p.s. L-A: Yep. We are fashionably schmasted. But seriously, thank you all so so much. Thank you for reading, thank you for commenting, thank you for writing for us, thank you for sending us pictures of your shoes, thank you for coming to our birthday party. And thank you to Brian Larter for taking pics (AllyG: We’ll be posting these as soon as they come in!  They are way better quality!). So many thank yous that I was inspired to google up this video for the week:

Yes, that’s Alanis. I was never much of a fan of that song, but I wrote thank you so many times that it popped into my head. The real song of the evening was Backstreet’s Back (does that even have an apostrophe in it?). Ally busted a move to that. Twice.

Also, thanks to Mosaic for letting us have our party there. You guys rocked! You are totally a favourite.

    Ummm…that photo kind of makes me look like an unfashionable, pea-headed fatty.

    And you can’t tell at all that I am on my tippiest of toes and Stepha is scrunched down several inches.

    But otherwise – GOOD TIMES – Al, you look amazing!

    Ladies, it was a superfun night. I think we need to celebrate the blog’s half-birthday in six months.

    Congrats Ally ! This is awesome! The other thing that’s awesome is that in the pic w your bro, there’s no sign of pit stains – 0, zip , none – unlike in most Perez photos of celebs. Thus, only conclusion is you must be a true DIVA!

    Super mad I missed the partay. It was in my calendar, I was pumped for a yummy drink and to say hello…then I was at work until 7pm.

    Looks like a good time was had by all. Happy one year !!
