Happy Veronica-day!

Our buddy Veronica was celebrating her day of birth this past weekend and although Jels couldn't make it, I made sure to represent the "Courtesy of" household.
The party was crazy and the dance-offs started eeeearly! I danced, I boozed and I tasted the best red velvet cake of my life.
Towards the end of the night I met this beautiful couple, Mark and Alicia (killer shoes, girl!) who've been together for 15 yrs and have 3 kids.( Future blast, Jels?) They told me with excitement that their oldest daughter (9yrs) had made her very first trip alone to the grocery store that day. Adorable. (Actually, she thought she had gone to the store alone before, but in the past - Mark had followed her all the way there and back without her knowing. Even more adorable!)

Killer night. I got home more drunk than when I had left the party and had a painful recovery the next day. Thanks Veronica, you know how to throw it down!


An evening with Jelsen and Stoli vodka

Wednesday night was just another day in the life of Jelsen Jargon. Music was blasting, people were boozing and Jelsen was working. This time around he was working in front of a crowd of over 1000 people who all came out to watch these four awesome designers...design. He teamed up with our buddy Guillo and together they made us "oooh", "aaah" and giggle.

Montel smoked himself to tears

Thanks to Jelsens old friend Nydia, who works for MPP, we got tickets to this benefit party last week. Jelsen had previous engagements so I brought Alexis with me instead. We thought it was a sit down dinner, so we came hungry. Very hungry. And when we discovered they were only passing appetizers, we stationed ourselves by the kitchen entrance with free drinks in hand and waited for the trays to come out.
We also got to see Kurt Loder ("MTV news, ten to the hour every hour"-dude!) speak about why he thinks medical marijuana should be legalized (heart warming stories sent to him by Nydia to share with us) . Montel Williams also did a speech and cried not only once, not twice...not three times...but FOUR! WTF?! First time , my eyes were a little moist too...but the way he kept doing it was so...fake! I couldn't believe what I was seeing, so out of line and dramatic! He needs to be back on TV asap.
At least he brought a pretty date.
Lex and I had to leave early because we had a more important party to get to. You can read all about it in the next post!
