NYC Trip With the Family

Welcome to post #2 of my four part “Christmas break” blog series :). Read my first post here!

In this blog, I want to share one of the most amazing days I had in a really long time! My family took a trip to NYC on a Tuesday night and met up with a couple of my Aunts, my Uncle & my cousins for a delicious dinner in Little Italy.

We took the train into the city in the last afternoon. Mom & I were bright eyed... Dad & Kath, not so much haha.

Thanksgiving EVE 2012

Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest bar night of the year, and in my small hometown everyone finds themselves at the local bar where it’s basically one big high school reunion. I’ve been a few times but it’s the more or less same experience every year…this year I did something a little different.

My Uncle Don (my godfather), is somewhat of a local legend at Bobby Valentines in Stamford, CT – years ago he used to run an awesome karaoke show every week. This year Bobby asked if he would be interested in hosting their Thanksgiving Eve karaoke, and he agreed. My cousins, aunts, uncles, brother, parents and best friend all headed out to Stamford Wednesday night for some karaoke fun! —>

My cousins girlfriend did this phenomenal Adele rendition- she was so good, the girl can seriously sing!!!
The boys did awesome!
..they really got into it LOL
I love this girl!!
A little in-seat dancing? Why not 😉
Me & my best <3

One woman got up to sing that working at the car wash song & asked Erin, my Mom and I to be her backup dancers –  needless to say, we got up & did a great job washing the cars – incriminating video is floating around somewhere LOL!

Afterwards I went home to spend some girl time with my under 21 sister who never fails to whip out her camera phone …

When you come home late at night, take down your hair & your little sister takes awkward photos of you making a duck face LOL

Regardless, I had SO much fun on Thanksgiving Eve, the most fun I’ve had in a while. When you combine family, friends, a few yummy drinks & some good, clean fun – there’s really nothing better. 🙂

What did you all do on Thanksgiving Eve?
