If you look to your left, you’ll see there’s a new page in the menu bar: Fall Firsts. As I mentioned in my monthly theme post at the beginning of the month, I want to try and get the most out of my favorite season in New York before the snow and blistering, cold wind take up residence. This weekend is going to be a great one because I’ll be able to cross one of the items off of my list: the Dumbo Arts Festival!
The cherry on top of the weekend ahead is that it will be filled with amazing people! Not only is Cynthia in town (visiting from St. Thomas), but I’ll be celebrating my cousin Lauren’s 25th birthday in style AND, wait for it, spending time with Melissa and Ammon (for the first time all together in, I think, 8 years) here in New York. With these social appointments tacked on to rehearsals and a film short shoot, and my first two Shakespeare classes at Adler, this week is going to end on a very high note! Be sure to check the Fall Firsts page to see how I’m doing, but as I’m sure you know check the home page because posts will be a-coming.
What a flippin’ FANTASTIC weekend I had! Not only did I get to celebrate my best friend/roomie’s birthday in fabulous Atlantic City, but I got to celebrate becoming an aunt for the THIRD time because my handsome and utterly adorable nephew Jaxen was born on Friday!!! (i’m so excited to see him, and hold him, and love him next month)
So you can imagine between the clubs, casinos, Boardwalk, food, text messages, photos, and phone call blitz, that this was definitely a weekend i’ll be remembering for years to come. As always a few photos from the weekend are included below. I got to say that Atlantic City was pretty sweet and cannot wait to go back. Spending time with the girls (Kristin, Bri, Cynthia, Kathleen and Amanda) was epic, we got to see Havana Brown spin the turntables and perform at Haven Nightclub at the Golden Nugget, dance to an amazing mix of top 40, R&B, and hip hop at Murmur at the fancy/schmanzy Borgata, and wander through the Tropicana and Outlet mall. Oh, and of course we went to the beach. WHOO! no wonder i’m so tired haha.
Hope your weekend was splendid that your week will be amazing where ever it may take you…
