Trying to put together an Ovation outfit and Crispycones?  
Tonight is the Ovation Awards... the attire is pretty dressy at these things and though I love going to these things, I've always hated dressing up. :P I have a couple of dresses that I brought along from home for the evening, but I didn't have any jewelry to wear... So today, Mark & I headed out to the Santa Anita Fashion Mall to look around...

After looking at a bunch of places, I finally found this necklace at Windsor - which I think is perfect for the evening. :) Hopefully it'll all look okay together with my earrings, dress, and shoes... I'm not much of a girly-girl so dressing up is a difficult concept for me - I'm mostly a sweater and slacks kind of girl...

Here's my necklace, if anyone is interested...

While we were at the mall, Mark & I encountered "Crispycones" in the food court. Has anyone heard of this place? They take all different kinds of food (pizza toppings, fajita fillers, omelete stuffers, etc.) and bake them and serve them up in cones. I've never seen a place like this before so Mark & I had to try it! Mark had the spicy pork cone and I had the meatball and mozzarella cone - and they were both pretty good! It kind of had the feel of an open hot pocket. :)

Yes, we look really silly here, but we wanted to show off our crispy cones!! :)

Oh well... I'm off to get ready for the big awards show... I'll be back tomorrow morning with a full re-cap of the evening. :) Hope you all have a wonderful night!! Big *HUGS*

Thanks, Sue!! As soon as I saw it in the store, I knew it would be perfect! :) And the crispy cones were yummy, but I will be paying for all this eating when I get home. :P

Thanks, Andrea!! I had such a hard time finding a necklace that I liked -- and then thankfully I came across this one. :) And the crispy cones were very good, but sooo bad for my diet (what diet??) ;)

You two are precious and I like your necklace.
Personally I like icecream in cones but those look kinda like slovaki pita bread thingys.
Have fun at your event!

Thanks so much for your comment, Ilene!! :) I have to agree that my favorite thing to put into cones is ice cream... especially if it's of the chocolate variety... ;) But those cones were interesting and I'm glad that we ended up trying them!! :)

Thanks, Rita!! I had an idea in my mind of what kind of necklace I wanted, but I couldn't find anything like it... until I saw this at Windsor. :) I'm SOOO not a make up and jewelry person so this all was a stretch for me. :)

Your necklace falls short of you, but that is not hard to do. I hope you have a lovely evening.

You are too sweet - big *HUGS* to you! We had a wonderful time!! :)

That necklace is gorgeous. And the picture of the crispycones helped, I've never heard of the place and couldn't even imagine what you were describing. Are the cones made of a tortilla or pita bread or something? Now that I have a better idea of what you're talking about, it does sound like it might be pretty good. :) I hope you guys had a great time at the Ovation awards. :)

Thanks, Laura! :) The cones are made of a bread that has the consistency of somewhere between a pita bread (but not as dry) and a pizza crust. It was actually very much like eating an open hot pocket - but tasted much better. :) And thanks so much - we had a wonderful time at the ovations. :D
