I found a cute black jumpsuit at Forever 21 (I've really been digging women's tuxedos) and put on my black wedges and sparkly earrings and was ready to go. I had so much fun with Freddie and my friends - Ali, Diane, Jen, Sarah and her boyfriend Zack. We all went to a Japanese restaurant in Branford, CT called Kampaii. We had a private room upstairs where you take your shoes off and sit on the plush, decorative pillows. We ended up having the whole upstairs to ourselves. It was a great time full of laughter!
The girls all surprised me with gifts - a beautiful blue bracelet (Sarah), a gorgeous bag full of hand-picked beauties (Ali), a yoga mat (Jen) and large mandala coloring book (Diane).
It was nice to have a small, intimate dinner and drinks with friends. When I was younger I wanted to party. As I get older I realize how much I like to be around my loved ones and to talk and laugh!
Me, Freddie and Ali
Saturday I spent using my gift cards and having a delicious early dinner with Freddie. Sunday I went to work and my boss surprised me with a bag full of amazing presents and a balloon. It really touched me. It's so nice working for someone you really look up to and find inspiring and work at a place that recognizes you.
