Yes? Okay good. Thanks guys for having my back as I transition my can't stop won't stop summer into my can't stop won't stop fall. It's been one hell of a ride.
So let's begin the #deerynycbach recap by talking about the lady of the hour, Muffin, who's one of the most fabulous, beautiful and celebration worthy best friends a girl could ask for. I'm so lucky to have her in my life and honored to stand-up with her on her wedding day. MRWA.
If the NYC bachelorette party is any inclination of what the December nuptials will be we are all up for one swanky, sequined and bubbles filled celebration.
|Five of us headed to NYC Thursday evening in to get an extra day of fun in before all the ladies joined us Friday evening. Here's Court, Kate, Muffin and Ginenne getting comfy on our rooftop terrace in the Rogers & Hammerstein Suite in the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. + a couple bottle of Veuve to make the day even better at The Plaza Hotel|
We were definitely living the suite life with our hotel accommodations at the Omni Berkshire Place with our foyer, two bathrooms, living and dining room and terrace.... we were SPOILED.
|After a wonderful dinner at the Spotted Pig (omg the liver toast) where sissy even met us for a cocktail we headed to the NYFW 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launch party. Yes, that NYFW. Yes, that Target. It was awesome. And I mean, how STUNNING are my friends... Ginenne, Muffin, Court and Kate. Who needs the paparazzi when I have my iPhone?|
|Post dinner our bar hopping included a Gay night The Standard - Le Bain.... there was a hot tub + dancing on the bar at Hogs & Heifers... no, we didn't leave any bras.|
|Over the last six months or so I've become a true spinning fanatic and thanks to my local spin studio, Psycle Therapy, I've become a true #psyclemonster. So when Muffin said she wanted to take a SoulCycle class we had to listen to the bride! What a cool experience it was. Making Muffin wear a veil on her bike was tops but the fact that we survived the class when only a few hours before people were dancing on a bar was a true miracle.|
|Friday the rest of the gals rolled in at various times of the day so we headed to Soho to eat sushi at and wait for the bachelorette party to grow: Kate, Pichee, Gina, Muffin, me, Ginenne and Court at Blue Ribbon + Court lending a helping hand to the cement pouring crew + Muffin leaving her mark on Sullivan Street... in a fashion romper. #whatdeerywore anyone?|
|We had grand intentions of shopping in Soho but let's be realistic here, we all went to UD and love day drinking at dive bars, enter Milady's on Prince Street + friends! + Pichee, Beaver and Gina + Muffin and a random dude with a cat on his hat, I bet Desi would be jealous if he saw this photo|
|How beautiful are my friends?!? And you wonder why I stay behind the camera so often! Here's Kate, Muffin, Beaver, MOB and Sara on our terrace + Heather, Court and Lindsay having a cocktail in the Mondrian Soho lounge before dinner + The beautiful setting for our delicious dinner at Isola Trattoria & Crudo Bar in the Mondrian|
|After the dinner it's the after party and after the party is the hotel lobby - group shot! + Holler, MOB and Foxx + me and Kate laughing... hard + Pichee and Shelly + Cheers, ladies! |
I had a good reason though, Katie and Matt got married!
I woke up early Saturday morning in NYC and was in Canton and ready to big fat Greek wedding it up a few hours later. I've known Katie for as long as I can remember, we grew up in the church, my sissy was a bridesmaid and it was an honor to help her celebrate her big day.
And to Greek dance....
|The happy couple, Matt and Katie at their reception at Brookside Country Club in Canton + the girls, sissy, Katie, Leah and Leah + Cathi, Tricia and my Mom + Jason, Peter and CK + Costa, Peter, Elenie, Alexandra and Peter + Wedding after party with the Toronto family at my Thea Eros and Uncle Nick's|
I think my can't stop won't stop summer had officially turned into my can't stop won't stop fall.
Now if you'll excuse me my penance for making time to write this post is continuing to pack my house up into the wee hours of the morning. Guys, I move out of my house on Friday, FRIDAY. Deep breathes.
Happy Tuesday, kids.
