Toronto FanExpo 2014

FanExpo is a place where you can let your inner geek out. It’s not all “nerdy” stuff, you can meet the normal actors that all the ladies think is good looking. It’s just a great big room of fun and awesome things.

My sister, boyfriend and I went to FanExpo yesterday. You can get a weekend pass or day passes (Thurs-Sun) in case you only wanted to go to one day, which is what we did.

We woke up nice a early and made our way there. The best part is we missed the first bus to get to Toronto, I live 30 mins away so it’s not that big of a deal so we just waited for the next one. When we got there it was crazy, the location was the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, which is located right beside the Sky Dome, the CN Tower and the Air Canada Centre! There was a million things going on at once but it made it fun.

We found where you go in if you bought tickets online and went on with our day. We got our green wrist bands for Saturday and waited in line for them to open the doors. When you walk in you are overwhelmed with everything, every where you look there is something to buy, do or see. My boyfriend’s A.D.D was for sure going off like crazy. We started by walking around and just seeing everything, we looked to see where the photos were being taken just so we knew where we were going, then went to go adventure.

There was two buildings out of this place that took us all up, the first building was called the North Building which had all the places where you meet everyone. We went over to the South Building which has all the free stuff and most of the things you would want to buy. At this point my sister and I split up because she needed to leave in order to go get her picture done with the guy who plays in Arrow, Stephen Amell. My boyfriend and I had lots of time before we met the person who picked which I will tell you later.

When we were walking around we found the Doctor Who society which is what my boyfriend and I love (hint, hint). We found the Daleks, the guy who does their voices and the Tardis!

I didn’t take very many pictures but it was mostly Doctor Who stuff I took. But lets get to the most exciting part of FanExpo, you can meet anyone who comes to this expo, you can look online before hand to see who’s going and get tickets to meet them, get autographs, and take a picture with them of course. As I said before my boyfriend and I love Doctor Who, best show going on. Matt Smith, the 11th doctor, was there and we got tickets to get a picture with him.

You only get about 7 seconds with him because the line was massive to take the picture but it’s worth it. My boyfriend and I were so happy to meet him, he is such an awesome guy. Next year or even look in your city to see if they’re coming to you. It’s a little bit on the expensive side but once again, worth it.

We each got our own little gifts for ourselves and other people but I’m not going to post that. Check it out!

Once again thank you for reading and don’t forget to follow!

Christmas Day

I didn’t write about Christmas day the other day so I am now. 

I couldn’t sleep that night for some reason so I woke up early with my sister, when I came down they were still making breakfast and my step dad was still getting up. I was just sitting there waiting for everyone and waiting to give my boyfriend’s gift to my parents. When I did give them the gift they thought he was crazy and said he didn’t need to do that. It was a gift card to Swiss Chalet for $50.00. 

We always start with our stockings because that’s what the whole world does I believe. My mum makes some pretty cool stockings or they seem cool to me for some reason. In my stocking I got face cream, face wash, scratch cards, Doctor Who mini figure, nail polish remover wipes, chocolate, Doctor Who book, itunes card, perfume, and more but I can’t think of it at the moment. 

Next we go onto the gifts, my mum let me open up this huge one, it was a dresser that I’ve been asking forever because I have the smallest room and the smallest closet and no room for any of my clothes. We kept opening gifts and things just got better and better. Some things my mum makes my sister and I open at the same time because it’s from the same store or something like each others, so this time we opened something from coach. I got the purse that I wanted and my sister got the watch that she wanted. The gifts I got from my mum if I can remember them all are the purse, dresser, football for dummies book, Doctor Who book (second one), case for my tablet, Doctor Who cookie jar, Doctor Who mug, Doctor Who glasses that changed colour when they is a cold drink in it, a roots sweater, many DVDs, lulu yoga shorts and top, yoga cats calendar, can’t cook cookbook, laundry basket, throw blanket, socks, and duck soap on a rope. 

After putting my dresser in my room my boyfriend calls me telling me that he had to be home for dinner at four. I was upset because he said he was going to be at my house for dinner. He told me to relax and that he was going to be there, then all of the sudden he asked if I could be at his house for dessert, I told him to just stay there because I had family coming over too. He then said that he wanted me to meet his nona and that we would go to his house then go back to my house for dinner. When I got there everyone was asleep because they were so tired, I opened my gifts and my boyfriend went up to nap as well. He woke up to hearing people in his house so we got up and went down stairs. I was in the kitchen leaning on the wall not paying attention to anything behind me when I heard someone say excuse me. I turned around to find an old lady with my boyfriend standing behind her, she asked me if I was his girlfriend which I said yes to. She shook my hand then kissed both my cheeks, she didn’t say much but she seemed nice and my boyfriend said that she liked me. I ended up sitting beside my boyfriend’s mum and my boyfriend at dinner. His mum is really nice to me and I like her so I will help her out if she asks me. Anyways, dinner went fine I barely ate because I knew I had to eat again, we said goodbye to people and left for my house. My boyfriend finds meeting new people so easy so I wasn’t worried about him at all, he had a lot of gifts to open which he loved from both me and my family. 

Some of my family that I actually like was at my house for dinner, we had a good time drinking then we watched the new Doctor Who episode. I’m so sad the Matt Smith is no longer the doctor! My boyfriend was so sweet to my switch was fun and stayed over for awhile then had to go home because he worked.

The night was pretty much over at this point and everyone went to bed. Christmas was fun and stressful but when isn’t it right? I hope all of you had a great Christmas!
