Saturday night, Jen and I had our housewarming party. We moved in mid-November and after the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season we were finally able to squeeze in our party! My room – still not done yet – getting there and looking better than what it was a few weeks ago (and apparently Carolyn and Ben are going to come over and lock themselves in there and finish it for me – wouldn’t that be nice! haha)
We had such a great party – thank you everyone for coming over and for all the kind gifts! I am so glad that we could share our new home with you!! Everyone hung out – drinking, eating and talking all night – and at one point I think there were 20 people squeezed into our fabulous but semi-small Manhattan apartment. It was nice to have all of our close friends over – laughing and enjoying themselves…. except for that one moment where Steve got on the table and started stripping – hahahaha Kidding – he didn’t do that, I think I would have died!
The party started at 6:30 and most people did not leave until after midnight. At this point a few of us headed a flew blocks down to a bar called Cabin Fever and there we ran into a KISS Tribute Band. Christina and I were ALL ABOUT posing for pics with them and It made a great night even better!!! Nothing like ending your night posing with KISS!!!!!!! The Gene Simmons guy came up to me and started wagging his tongue at me – “the signature move” – and me being me just stood there with my hands on my hips with a disgusted look on my face – he said “No? that doesn’t do it for you?” I said “No, its disgusting!” (oh and they have a myspace page and they put a pic of Christina and I up!) http://profile.myspace.com/kissaliverocks
Thank you again everyone for everything and for being such great friends – Christina, Carolyn, Andy, Gwen (and my little fellow fighting Illini fan!), Steve, Simone, Michele, Jay, Megan, Jenn M., Nick, Les, Jacob, Ben, Carlo, Jenn L., Dave, Lydia and of course my ROOMIE – Jen!
