Tis the Season

{photo from weheartit}

I hit a wall Friday night. A day that began with a glass (or two or three) or champagne at 1:30 in the afternoon (party #1) and ended with a late night karaoke shindig (party #3), Friday showed me that I'm not cut out for all that drinking and partying, no matter what the occasion. I came home that night tired, sad and quite pissy to be perfectly honest. I had to slow down. So Saturday night? All mine.

After a financing planning session (more on this later) avec my NYC big sis, I picked up some Indian food and a vegan whoopie pie  a la the Vegan Goddess at Cafe Indigo at the Whole Foods in Columbus Circle and went home to enjoy a night of solitude.  I can't tell you how happy I was to crawl into bed at midnight.  Although I didn't fall asleep for a couple of hours, I woke up something like 9 hours later and felt completely and totally rested and ready to tackle the day and week ahead.

Opening my filofax, I see my week ahead is a big one. 
  • Monday - Holiday party #1
  • Tuesday - Holiday party #2 (at Buddakan!!)
  • Wednesday - Traditional Union Square Holiday Market and Wined Up date avec fave roomie
  • Thursday - first a cappella group rehearsal (more on that later)
  • Friday - ALL MINE!
  • Saturday - 4 Course Vegan dinner (so excited!!)
As for tonight, I'm going ice skating at Bryant Park to be followed by dinner and a walk up Fifth Avenue to see the tree at Rockefeller, the lights at Saks, and the gorgeous windows at Bergdorf's.  I heart NYC Christmas (but I don't heart the inevitable masses of tourists - ugh).

Happy Holidays, y'all!
