My girls like to party all the time!

Well, my girlies (Amy and Maria) left me yesterday. Boohoo. Back to regular life. This was such a great vacation and I didn’t even really have to go anywhere! I have so much to write about, but not a lot of time, so I figured I’d just post some pictures.

We went out in NYC on Saturday night and it was like getting ready for prom! On Friday, the girls peer pressured me into getting this gorgeous top from Bebe, and well, I had to get some pants too while I was at it. I mean, I didn't have NYC nightlife appropriate clothing! :-) Oh yeah, and I had to go to MAC to get some matching eye makeup too. Anyway, we spent hours primping and even sported the fake eyelashes. I was a little freaked out because of my whole eye-thing, but I conquered my fear to look fabulous! I couldn't see that well all night, but it was worth it! So here are some prom pics of us:

Check out the lushes lashes:

After a brief stint at what turned out to be a gay bar, we found our way to the Aer Lounge. I don't know what new yorkers put in their drinks, but one appletini at the Aer Lounge and we were good for the night! Thank goodness since they were $12 a piece. Here's a pic of us at the club, check out Amy's shirt-dress. I can't even count how many comments she got on her outfit that night! ;-)

I had a little accident that night. While climbing up on something (don't ask), I stepped on a cushion-y bench, that I didn't realize was so soft and I took a little tumble. Silly me. Here's a picture of my knee the next morning:

And here are two more pics from one night when we went out in Philly. We started at Pod, then went to the Continental, and ended up in Mint. I'll tell ya all about it at a later date:

So that's a brief peek at Amy and Maria's East Coast Tour 2005. It didn't end up being a poor girl's tour like we had originally planned, but oh well. Who can afford to be poor on a vacation like this?! I'll be sure to give you all the filthy details later. :-)

7 Things You Don't Know About Me

So, I thought Maria's post on her blog was a really great idea, so I came up with my own "strange" melissa facts. Funny though, mine seem way more embarrassing than hers do. Why am I admitting this stuff????

1. I was a flute section leader in high school marching band. Yeah, geeky. I wanted to be a drum major, but then I wouldn’t get to play, and playing my flute was the only reason I was in band. Well, that and the cool uniform. I actually thought I’d go to Julliard one day! Haha!
2. Along the geeky lines, when I was a high school freshman, I was on my school’s bowling league. I was the worst one on the team so I quit the next year.
3. My middle name is Kim, not Kimberly, just Kim.
4. The only pets I’ve ever had were goldfish. But I had this one, his name was Spot and he lived for over 2 years. I used to put my finger at the top of the water and he’d nibble it. I cried my eyes out when he died.
5. I collected post cards when I was growing up. I think I have over 1200. My grandfather still sends me all the ones he ever gets in the mail. ☺
6. The first time Rob tried to kiss me I told him no. Even though I knew I wanted to be with him, I hadn’t broken up with my current boyfriend yet, and I didn’t want to be a cheater.
7. (This one is super-embarrassing.) Sometimes, when I’m in my car singing, I imagine myself on American Idol. :-p I think about what songs I would pick and everything! That is so bad, but I can’t imagine anything better than being a singer!

Well, that's my list. I hope you all still like me. ☺ You don't have to respect me, I just hope you still like me.
