Hello!

Hello and welcome to my new blog.  I have decided to pack my bags and move from blogger.com to wordpress.com. In the next few days, I’ll be figuring out how to move all of my blogger content onto this blog, and making it look more personable.

In the meantime, feel free to check me out at: twiingallery.blogspot.com

Thanks,

>Chris Ameruoso Photoshoot

>12.6.08 Photoshoot day with Christopher Ameruoso. I had an amazing experience at the photoshoot with Chris. Chris and his stuff were super nice. His makeup artist, Hilda spend an hour doing my hair and makeup and stayed thoughout the photoshoot and continusully “fixed” me up. Lindsey, Chris’s girlfriend was a lot of fun to hang with on the set and Chris himself was a very cool guy. He gave me his autographed book, bought few different treats for Misiu and had breakfast for us on the day of the shoot. Below are some many photos he took.

Even Rob got in for a few photos

>Wings, Patron, Wii

>10.25.08 Kris and Courtney’s Housewarming Party. We celebrated with lots of food, shots and Mario Wii game. I usually don’t drink straight up vodka shots or play video games, but peer pressure took over me on Saturday night and I didn’t miss a round of shots. It was my first time playing a Wii game and I must admit I was terrible at it. Maybe next time will be better.

Violet is loosing…

My turn to play against Wii champ, of course I lost…

Evil Courtney beating Rob in the game

It’s safe to say I lost that game too…

To a new condo and the upcoming wedding with Patron Cafe

I love getting everybody together for a group shot 🙂

How many Polaks can fit onto one couch?

Another round of shots, its Polish vodka this time

>Party Time

>September 20. Party at the Szumilas household. And when there’s a party there is lots of food, drinks and of course singing. Rob’s family is very musical, I guess that’s where Rob gets his singing talent. Rob’s dad entertains by playing guitar and singing old fashioned Polish songs.

>Bridesmaid Dress Shopping

>

8.21.08 Today Courtney picked us up and we went to David’s Bridal to try on some bridesmaid’s dresses. The great thing is that each bridesmaid can have a different dress style, as long as they are the same color, Blue. Rachel, Courtney’s best friend, Violet and I had a great time trying on all the dresses and taking pictures. Kelly, Courtney’s sister who is also in the wedding party was not present. So after some hour and a half of dress shopping, I think we finally picked our favorites.
So many dress choices…

Rachel (left) and Violet (right) have their dresses picked out alreadyAnd I’m still searching for the right one
After 10 different dresses, here’s the winner

>Anytime: Mowing the Lawn

>7.25.08 Relaxing at parents’ house. But dad is a busy bee. After 12 hours of work he still comes home and looks for things to do around the house. First he cuts the grass and then he paints the hallway. A great opportunity for me to take some shots of everyday life.

Raspberries in parents’ backyard
I don’t know what kind of flowers are those but they resamble deflated pumkins

Viola wants to try too
The sky looks like a cloud of smoke
