Well for me I know I'm definitely blessed to say that I know I have 4 great best friends. For starters on Dec. 27, Danielle and Mina had given me a killa outfit as a Christmas present to wear for New Year's Eve, but unfortunately the jeans were too tight. They were SO beautiful too, I might still call around myself to see if any other STATE has them. So after trying on the outfit, Mina calls some other stores around in Missouri but unfortunately there were none in stock in my size.
So we ended up going to Chesterfield Mall and changing up the outfit yet it still looked great. We left there and went back to their house and I went home for the night. They told me that was only just part one of my present and that I would love part 2 just as much. Well they were right!!
Last night (Dec. 29), I didn't have work so I packed my stuff and went Danielle's and Mina's place. Later on that evening Mina had left to do something and I was asleep in Danielle's room. I hear a knock on the door and Danielle goes downstairs to answer it. i assumed it was Mina coming through the door but it wasn't. IT WAS KAI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They had surprised me and she flew in town. She was coming up the steps and I just broke down in tears. I was so happy to see her I was jumpin up and down.
When she made it to the top of the steps we gave each other a huge hug. I just didn't want to let her go!! We then sat down in Danielle's room and they told me how they had been planning this and I was just amazed. Kamina got home shortly and I was just beaming from ear to ear. I had 3 of my best friends under the same roof and I was loving it!!! We then went to the Central West End to try have some drinks at a place called SUBZERO which is the appropriate name for the club, because as far as we were concerned there was ZERO chance of us being able to enjoy ourselves and get a drink. So we went around the corner to the winery BRENNANS which has an upstair's area to relax in and we sat there talking.
We had serious conversation about myself and issues that I was going through. It was definitely a talk that I needed and appreciated. We stayed there and went through 2 bottles of Marco Negri (our favorite wine). Afterwards we went back to Mina and DAnielle's home and we played some spades. Well as usual I couldn't play for shit but the strange thing is that Kai and I were winning. We almost won but we stopped playing since people were getting hungry so we went to the East Side and they got some Chicken and Fries plate specials.
Afterwards we came back home and Kai had to get going since she had a flight that left the next day around 3:30pm. I gave her a hug and told her to have a safe trip. Not to mention my beautiful god-baby is still here in town for the next 2 WEEKS so i'm so going to be hooking up with her.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Saturday (Dec. 30)- Since it was the weekend pretty much it I was trying to relax but my mom called and said that there some chores that needed to be taken care of. So i arrive at the house around 11am and left there to meet my mom at the Galleria to look at some clothes for my new job. We parted ways around 4 or 5pm. So I went to a couple of stores since I had gift cards for them to see what I wanted to buy. While I was at one, Kai called me and asked how I was feeling about the talk we all had yesterday evening. I told her that I was okay and i didn't feel at all as though they were ganging up on me. We talked for a few more minutes and said our good-byes.
I then went to Bath and Body works but i couldn't find anything I wanted there. So I went to another store and found some stuff there. Around 6 or 7pm I called Danielle and Mina and they were over in Fairfview Heights kicking it and relaxing. I told them to give me a call once they got back to the house. So around 9pm we convened back at the house, chilled out and relaxed.
Sunday (Dec. 31)- Danielle and I got up and got our things together to take to the hotel room that we had reserved for 2 nights. WE went to the mall first so she could get a hat. She found what she was looking for and then we jetted to the Hotel to checkin. Afterwards I left real quick to dip to Northwest Plaza to pick something up but they were out of stock of the item I wanted. So Danielle calls me and tells me that she, Mina, and Damon were all at IHOP waiting on me and asked me what I wanted to eat. I gave her my order and met them 5 minutes later.
We all are there relaxing and eating our food. Once we are done, Danielle and I go to Best Buy so we can get some stuff done. We then go back to the hotel room and relax and get ready to go out. ONce we are dressed we go back to the city to meet up with Mina and her friend. We go to Danielle cousin's aparatment to enjoy his party for about 15 minutes. Mina and her friend decide to pass it and will meet us for the second party back at our hotel room. OKAY 20 minutes later, we leave and meet back up with Mina and we then jet from the hotel room to the 2nd party which is 10 minutes away.
Point blank THAT PARTY WAS A BLAST AND OFF DA CHAIN!!!!!! Had some alcohol of course and MAN the atmposhere and people were great!!!! Mina and her friend were kicking it having blast and the hosts were just absolutely wonderful. Danielle and I were sippin these drinks called SNO-CONES and they were SWEET!!!!!
Monday (Jan. 1)- We left there around 1am and went back to the hotel. Our friend Larry came through and chilled out with us. He left around 3am and we Danielle and Myself went to IHOP for some late night dinner. We get there and the place was jammed packed. We get to our table and I order a Ham, Egg, Cheese Melt platter. IT WAS DELICOUS. So we leave there and go back to our hotel room around 4:30am and chill out. Yet unfortunately for me I start getting sever stomach cramps by noon.
Danielle says the liquor I drank being mixed with the greasy food I ate was pretty much spelling disaster. So we order a pizza and get a 2 liter bottle of Siera Mist. While I'm downing the soda, Danielle enjoys the bottle of Marco Negri that we brought along. We both enjoy the pizza and that was that. Mina came through for a while and we played some Dominios. Mina left later on that night and Danielle and I went to sleep.
Tuesday (Jan. 2)- Up and at it by 8am. Went to the bank real quick to make a deposit. Danielle and I check out by 9:40am and I took her to work. I'm at home right now chillin out and waiting to go in myself by 1:30pm. Overall my New Year's Eve and Christmas was just WONDERFUL!!! I hope yours was as well.
