80's in SoHo

Since Filip's and Mike's Birthday is within a week of each other the boys decided to throw an 80's party! It was a blast! well at least from what I heard! I went to bed like two hours into it!! so sad but learned the next day that we had no lock on the bathroom door, all black floors, and i slept through 2 almost fights! Ela came and stayed until Monday we went out on Sunday and I felt like vomiting all over my keyboard the next day at work! granted the weekend was a blast!!


We got a Christmas Tree!! All four of the roommates went out and picked out our very own christmas tree! It took a lot of time and lots of negotiating but we finally got 'Paco!' We then took it home and turned on the christmas carols and made hot chocolate and decorated the tree together. it was really fun and good for roommate bonding! We also decorated the crazy tree thats in the corner of the living room with lights.

Tree Lighting

Filip, Kasia and I met up at my house after work and spiked our chai lattes with some Irish Whiskey and headed over to Rockeffeler Center. It was so crowded! we had to push our way forward just to get a glimpse of a part of the tree. Filip got into a confrontation with a lady that apparently had no christmas spirit and was just grumpy! We saw Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood and Josh Groben perform christmas songs! It was really cool! We ended up leaving like 40 minutes before they lit the tree because we didnt feel like standing around with 1000's of people for that much longer. Planning on going back to check it out all lit up pretty soon!

Thanksgiving Weekend

Filip invited my to spend Thanksgiving with him and his brother Adam's family in Lebanon, PA. It was so nice and relaxing! Their home was beautiful as well as their family. They have a 5 month old baby Tyler who is so precious! We just hung out on Wednesday night and on Thursday ate dinner around 3pm and after that watched football and kept going back for rounds with the food. We took a really nice stroll with the baby around the neighborhood. On Friday we ate more left overs and I went jogging around the area and then borrowed one of their bikes and rode around. It felt so good to be able to ride a bike, its been so long! 
Friday night I went back to the city and hung out with Konrad S. was in town for the weekend. We went to a couple speakeasies, which are prohibition bars that usually are very hidden and have secret entrances. The first one you enter through a phone booth and the second one was disguised as a toy company and served drinks in tea cups! 
Saturday I hung around the house and then went out to sushi and then to the Buddha Bar with Sylwia P. who was in town for the weekend as well with her friends from NC. It was really fun we had sushi
 and free Saki and then did some booty shaking at Buddha Bar. 
Sunday I went to the Farmers Market in Union Square and then walked around town and did some window shopping. It was really nice I just sipped on a peppermint Mocha and enjoyed the Christmas decor all around the city. I went to kosciol at St. Patricks and then checked out the Chri
stmas tree at Rockefeller Center which was still bare. All in all a nice relaxing day.
