Sissy is 30!

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I can't party like I used to, guys.

Upon arriving back in Cleveland after three ridiculously fun and amazing days/nights in NYC to celebrate the best sissy in the world's 30th birthday I literally fell asleep Monday night with my dinner in my lap. Totally normal.

The second night post trip I made it through dinner without falling asleep - barely - and on the third night post trip I'm finally able to gather my thoughts for a blog post. 

It was that much fun.

Celebrating my sissy is easy, she's awesome, creative, beautiful, a pain in my ass and a great friend - love you, Nicolette!

Now, for the pictures, because even though I'm lucid again I'm not about to do a detailed, copy heavy, play by play of the whole weekend. Let's be serious here.

Sissy and I got to sit second row for a taping Late Night with Jimmy Fallon - he's as adorable, funny and talented as you'd think live. The Roots ain't bad either.

A swanky and THE BEST seat dancing 11pm dinner I've ever had at Beauty & Essex with Jason, C-Rossi and Sissy

Saturday we spent the day at 5 Pointz which is essentially this breathtakingly beautiful outdoor graffiti art "museum" and eating out weight in Greek diner food

Saturday night we celebrated sissy's birthday with a 50's themed murder mystery party with friends at Smithfield NYC - there were characters and investigators - C-Rossi was a waitress, I was a "mature" actress and sissy was a lounge singer (hello, sequins)
Friends from near and far!

More friends and fun - I mean, sissy even got a mugshot prop and made name badges for all the characters - so good.

Everyone (minus me and Leah) celebrating sissy!

After much investigator deliberation NO ONE guessed "Gerry Gill" as the murderer - she almost got away with it, ha. I still find this picture hilarious and love that C-Rossi was guilty.

Post party we hit up a couple more bars and headed home way past my bedtime but woke up in time to eat fried chicken and eggnog waffles for brunch at Melba's, see The Sapphires and eat pizza at Patsy's.

I'm tired just recapping this but already want to plan a Cleveland murder mystery party it was so much fun - who's in?

Happy Thursday, kids.
