This past Saturday, I attended my Uncle’s 65th birthday party all the way out east on Long Island. The event was a surprise party, so my Aunt had instructed everyone to wear “wedding attire” since my Uncle had thought he was attending a friends daughter’s wedding. I’m really glad I had decided to include my convertible 70′s style jumpsuit in my 30 for 30 challenge since it worked perfectly for this event.
The party was one to remember. My family likes to go all out when it comes to parties. There was a DJ, beautiful centerpieces, lots of delicious food and plenty of drinks.
Oh, and there were cigar rollers! I love me a good cigar, I’m totally weird that way.
My absolute, favorite part of the evening was getting to see my Great Aunt. She back a few years ago had moved to Arizona, and it’s been really difficult for her to get back to New to visit us or for us to go and visit her. My Dad managed to get her to NY as a surprise for my Uncle. She’s totally one of a kind. She’s in her 80′s, hilarious and has a horrendous potty mouth. To give you an idea, I asked her if she wanted to dance with me and she told me “I only dance if there is a pole involved!”. I was dying! I am beyond happy I got to see her!
I love you Auntie!
