11 March 2009


Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I appreciated all the comments, 12am phonecalls, bbms, textes, emails, kisses - all of it. I had a great time and surprises all week.

Contrary to what others say, I do not think my celebrations were as grand as some people I know, however I loved every bit of it and did not want to do anything huge, I just wanted to spend time with some of the most important people in my life - and I did.

Last Tuesday, I stayed at the W Hotel in NYC. If anyone knows about the W Hotel, they know it is nothing but iconic and innovative luxury. That was a total surprise because the whole way there, I kept asking where we were headed. I fell in love with the 18th floor room. Like a kid, I ran and jumped on the bed and buried myself in the silk lilac sheets that adorned the King size bed. We started the day off just right...

We had a great brunch in the W Hotel. Then I hit Silky Day Spa, a few blocks away from the hotel, for a few services. I tried to take some pics but it was so dark in there, they didn't come out clear. I could've taken pics from their site, but I wanted live pics. The atmosphere was so serene and zen-like, I was in a trance the entire time there.

Later on that evening, we went to this Spanish cuisine restaurant located in midtown east. Stuffed my face, then had some shots. Of course I was totally surprised because as we were leaving, or so I thought, I was presented with a cake (pic below). I know people are probably wondering why I'd be surprised, things like this happen right? Right. But if you know him, like I know him, you'd understand.

As if my birthday wasn't over, my favorite girls here at work surprised me - again. Adina comes to my desk, like I sooo need to tell you something. Which is normal. We take coffee/tea breaks all the time, so I was like cool. I walk into this room and see a cake and the girls. Love you girls, for real.

I had so much planned for the weekend, but seeing as how fulfilling Tuesday was, I cut back on some plans, especially since not everyone was available - so I opted for a good ole party which was at BB Kings in Times Square. As always, Showcase/Empire parties are donned celeb central - Jadakiss stopped by and performed. I got a bit too wasted so I only posted one of my pre-shitfaced pics. Yes, the pic is cropped - there some other drunks in it, and I'm not letting my girls look crazy on the www.

All in all - the party was bananas. A few people can attest to that. Here's a few more flicks before the party got too crazy.

I was trying hard to remember the last half of my night. Smh. I had the craziest hangover and finally around 6pm, I decided to meet up with my BFF and enjoy the nice day before it ended. We met up, went to this Haitian restaurant with my daughter and stuffed our faces. I felt soo much better. Here's the funny - as we are leaving the restaurant, the music suddenly gets REALLY loud and the song Happy Birthday comes on, lights go off and out comes yet another surprise cake. I love her!

I'll post a few pics on some gifts I got and gave myself in a bit.
