“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.  A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”  ~Bill Vaughan


This would be our second New Years’ Eve party in a row. Last year’s theme: 1940’s. This year’s theme: 1980’s.

Last year’s attendance: Roughly 20 or so. This years: a whopping 8. Everyone bailed on us. Whatever. More chocolate and cheesecake for me!

Last year’s party featured jello molds. This year, we rocked a chocolate fountain!!! Yeah, baby!



It was quite the spread, really, thanks to our friends, Nika and Joe.




This would be me and Nika. And yes, she got the memo about the 80’s theme. 

Conversation between Mitch and Nika, prior to the party.

Mitch: “So what are you wearing to Faith’s party?”

Nika: “Oh! I got these new Micheal Kors boots! I’m planning on wearing them!”

Mitch, very loudly in his very loud voice that he has, with much inflection: “Micheal Kors is NOT from the 80’s!!!!!”

Nika, also very loudly, with matched inflection: “Micheal Kors is timeless!!!!” 

I had to chuckle.


According to Miss Cindy, we are Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman”! Maybe, if I had been able to find those hooker boots like hers. Of course, I could have just borrowed Nikas. *laugh*




Glamour girls.



So Nika used to be a model in the Ukraine. She was teaching me her model pose.



And then I was teaching her mine.



Which apparently, was comical.



The gangsta.



Apparently, I REALLY enjoyed the chocolate fountain. Please note the leftovers in the corner of my mouth. Classsssy.



I have 4 words for you: Jem and the Holograms.



Yes, it was my favorite cartoon. That’s the look I was going for. I even tried to make the gloves, but unfortunately the sewing machine wasn’t working. Damn.



Oh, those silly kids.



Yes, indeed. It was an evening to remember.



Oh, and by the way, HAPPY NEW YEARS to you and yours!!!!

    Aww, I didn’t bail on purpose! I promise you I was so geared up to go all ‘The Cure’ inspired! You know how families are, they’re the worst at making you do things you wouldn’t let other people get away with making you do.
