this is a public service announcement

Okay, so maybe this is more of an I-am-the-worst-planner-ever-and-my-30th-birthday-is-just-a-month-and-a-half-away announcement.  Here’s the deal:  I am going to be in NYC for my 30th birthday this NEW YEAR’S EVE!!!  Standing in Times Square, watching the ball drop, celebrating a new year and a new decade for me!!!  And you are all invited!  Seriously.  See, I figure that most people who read my blog actually love me {and by that, I mean you probably know me personally or are related to me}.  And I want to invite any and everyone who loves me to come celebrate with me.  Since I do not possess the capabilities of planning a trip like this for a group of people, I am just extending the invitation.  So, meet me in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.  Bring your family, come with a friend, or alone…


And actually, my wonderful friend Brandie did take charge when I procrastinated and she found us a room to stay in just a few blocks from Times Square.  Right now, there are four of us girls who are going and will be staying in the room…But I am quite sure we could fit in two or three more girls!  I am not joking when I say that I have seriously already considered buying an air mattress once we get there, if we need to accommodate more people in our room.


Please don’t feel hurt that I didn’t invite you personally and maybe you are just hearing about this for the first time here.  Let me explain…..Most of my close friends are married with families, so I just assume that they won’t want or be able to ditch their families during the holidays for a {not so} wild trip to New York.  So, instead of inviting people and making them have to say no to my face, I’m putting it out there, here on my blog.  Smart, huh? ;)

Who’s in???

I'm going to NYC for MY birthday.

But, it is not on New Years Eve. Dude. What a COOL birthday.

My birthday is in February, and I am really going more for fashion week than my bday. My birthday just so happens to be during fashion week every year. Hey, that's pretty cool too.

Maybe I'll go for NYE, too. ;)

I don't know you personally and I'm not related to you :) But I do love your photography :) aaaand I was in NYC last NYE and it was AWESOME!! You will have so much fun! It was cold, and wet, and crowded, and I mentioned cold right?! But when the ball drops and everyone is sharing that moment together and everyone is so happy and they play NY, NY over the speakers…it makes it ALL worth it!! Frozen nose and all! Yeah, I'm kinda jealous right now that you are going ;) My best friend and I can't wait to go back again!! Good luck and I hope you have a blast!
