Valentines Day

Valentines day it snowed, 
The weather in NY has been crazy!!
Bf & I decided to stay in, watch movies and snuggle on the couch.
He got me a bottle of wine, 
My favorite kind too; Moscato!!

For dinner, he made delicious Turkey nachos. 
They were to die for:

I told him i didn't want flowers they are a waste of money.
I told him if he wants to get me something, 
Get a card and write a little something & don't just sign your name.
He agreed.

To my surprise at work on Monday...

I was catching up on work because I wasn't in on Saturday, 
Some old guy comes to the front office door and asks for me.
I'm thinking to myself, 
"Who the hell is this?? I don't know you"
Turned out, the bf sent me flowers anyway!!

They took over half of my desk!
I had to shift over my phone and 2nd computer screen!

He also attached a very thoughtful card:

How did I get so lucky??!!
Pinch me, 
I think I am dreaming. 

Jerry Only Misfits

Friday night we went to see The Misfits!!
Yes, we go to see them on Friday the 13th!!
They put on an awesome live show. 
My only gripe was that they played a lot of the songs much faster so it had a different melody/beat and they ended up shortening up a lot of their songs...
I am very happy to report though, they played Saturday Night at the correct speed & melody. 
The speed & melody of this song, basically makes the song so I'm glad they played it accurately or i would have been pissed.
They played dozens of my favorite songs, the only song i love they didn't play was Last Caress. 
But i was extremely happy they played a lot of older stuff, my favorite stuff. 

I got to meet the lead singer, Jerry Only!!:

I now have a picture with Michael Graves & Jerry Only- 
Their autographs too!!
I just need to track down Danzig....
Then i will have all singers from the Misfits autographs & pictures.

The bf had a good time too, It was his first concert!
I think mainly he had a good time because I was sooooo damn excited to be seeing like my all time favorite band.  
Minus the drunk idiot that was being super weird it was an awesome night.
Also ran into a few people i know which is always cool.

The Misfits

Next Friday for a early Valentines Day present, I am taking my boyfriend to see his first real concert.
Yes, the love of my life made it to 25 years hold and has not seen a real concert, crazy!!!
He has seen Ne-Yo at six flags once before he really got famous/popular.
We are going to see one of my all time favorite bands,
The Misfits!!
I have been listening to The Misfits since I was probably around 16 years old.
They have gone through some lead singers, but I will always be a fan.
Unless their lyrics get crappy...
I have not seen them live with Jerry Only as the singer yet, and I have heard mixed reviews regarding him as a live performer.
A few years back I was able to see old lead singer Michael Graves play an acoustic set at Club Europa in NYC, he was amazing. I loved his set so much, I was also a little drunk I cried when he played Saturday Night, one of my all-time favorite songs.
I hope I have a great experience seeing them live now as I did seeing Michael Graves a few years ago. I don't like being let down by live performances of bands that I Love.
I will Definitely make an entry after the concert which I keep psyching myself up for.
And its going to be a semi local show too, at The Paramount in Huntington NY.

My Birthday/ Vacation 2015

This year, I decided for once in my life I wanted to do something for my birthday.
I always used to do low key with close friends and family because it always snowed around my birthday, no one likes to drive in the snow.
Anyway, this year my boyfriend & I booked a 9 day cruise & my parents went too!
(Separate room from my parents obviously)
It was absolutely amazing! I had such a good time relaxing, laying out to tan, shopping, etc.
We went to- Puerto Rico, Saint Thomas, Saint Maarten & Tortola.
Night 1, at sea;
For my birthday present my boyfriend booked up a couples massage.
It was an amazing way to start off the vacation relaxing & getting those achy muscles taken care of.
Day 2, at sea;
A drunk guy who called himself Doc bought me a bottle of wine and talked my boyfriends ear off for well over an hour. He saw us sitting by the bar outside by the pool.
He was mildly harmless but he wouldn't shut up.
My boyfriend told me he was going to call him Chris Angel (like the magician guy that was on TV) because every sentence he started off with "ARE YOU READY??" just like the guy that was on TV.
The wine was really good though, I drank the whole bottle in an hour.
Day 3, Puerto Rico; My birthday!
We got free Frog Leg shots at Senor Frogs, yummy!
My birthday Dinner:
Day 4, Saint Thomas;
This beach is on the top 20 most beautiful beaches/views in the world,
Meagan's Bay.
We also did some shopping in Saint Thomas but I didn't take pictures.
Day 5, Saint Maarten;
Day 6, Tortola;
There was nothing to do in Tortola except go to the beach.
By the time we took a water ferry from the ship to the pier, and then a taxi to the beach we didn't have much time to spend there;
Day 7 & 8 were at sea coming home;
we got caught in that storm that hit back home in NY with snow.
The boat was rocking horribly and the waves according to the TV on the boat said 11-14 ft. waves.
But we made the best of it.
Day 9; Back home in the afternoon.
I could not have asked for a better 27th birthday/vacation.
