the one where we support, have a dance party and get a little Jersey

What a long week. Yes, a long, busy and successful week between cities.

After spending the entire week at the NYC office and loving the 75 sunny weather, I was back on Friday to attend an event I'd been looking forward to for awhile - Makeup, Martinis and Manicures to benefit Leukemia and Lymphoma Society - and couldn't wait to hang out, sip martinis and catch up with my girl friends.

Friends, martinis; makeup artists




with my bff; manicurists with a hella long line

ran into Kara and Dan at Market Garden post dinner
Saturday evening I  headed to the lovely Alana and Dean's place for what was a "bonfire in Bay Village" party, which quickly turned into a college dance party in the living room complete with table dancing, sing alongs to Bieber, Rihanna and dollar bills were thrown around at some point because why wouldn't they be?!?

Oh, and yes the table dancing was happening on Alana's probably very expensive coffee table while the boys had their own Grateful Dead listening party in the garage as we danced around singing at the top of our lungs.

Then on Sunday, a group of obsessed New Jersey housewives fans gathered in my apartment to tweet the hell out of the show, laughing all while eating themed appetizers and a champagne concoction.

For the record, I have never EVER seen all of us so incredibly quiet other than during this show - it was actually remarkable. The last time I hosted a premiere party for Gossip Girl, no one actually watched the show but in this case, we didn't miss a second of the Jersey drama.

Sidenote: If you are on Twitter and want to laugh until your stomach hurts, please do yourself a favor and follow @thefauxmilaniag for the best tweets from the show. Hands freaking down.

Andddddddddd, that brings the weekend to a very entertaining close. I'd say we all had a bit of fun, as always.
