The Morning After New Year’s Eve

I awoke with one false eyelash hanging over my eye. The smell of food from the night before was still in the room. There was make-up all over the sheets. My silk dress was ruined. A lampshade was on the floor.

Everyone had on pajamas except for one. I commented on seeing him fully dressed so early. He said he slept in his outfit and passed out. Someone had left the refrigerator door opened and all of the juice was warm. There were clothes, party favors, noisemakers, cards, and plastic champagne glasses strewn all over the room.

After putting on jeans and a t-shirt, but still barefoot, I ventured downstairs to the restaurant to inquire about breakfast. I still looked a mess and felt exhausted but I was so hungry. The concierge and bellhops looked at me strangely. The staff at the restaurant was professional though. They looked at me and said, “Table for 1?” The French toast and bacon was great!

Many thanks to my childhood friend from Germany and his wife for inviting me to this wild and crazy party in Washington D.C. at the Beacon Hotel! I had no idea how hard people partied in the DMV! I started off the new year with a bang.

Hello 2014!

Flashback of the day: Paris, France Bonne Année a Paris!

Intimate gathering of a few very close friends. 

Happy New Year Paris! This flashback is a very fun memory. My friend Ted, (bottom left of the photo) invited us ALL to his apartment for drinks, snacks and a good time before we head to the Eifel Tour for the countdown. As you can see his apartment was about 11 or 12 feet only. There’s actually a shower door hidden in the picture. Anyway we had a great time at Ted’s and then took the 5 minute walk to the Eifel Tour. We (yankees especially) were waiting for some type of countdown. There wasn’t one so we counted down at least 3 times according to different watches before it actually happened. 

 

The tour lit up and everyone was sprayed with champagne! It was really fun! Best Paris New Year’s ever! 😀
