My Favorite Place In The World...COSTA RICA

In 2011 I went to Costa Rica twice...Once to Santa Teresa and once to Peninsula Papagayo. I figured I share some of the pictures before the year was over...

The Most Random Fun Xmas Party...

After Christmas shopping at Barney's with my father we stopped by one of his friends Christmas parties and ended up staying out until 2am... The party was one of the most fun Christmas parties I have been to.  It was a bunch of lawyers who loved making LONG dramatic speeches about topic such as alternate realities were.  There was endless champagne, wine, belly dancers and even a blind sitar player from Tiabet.

After work dinner.

Sausage bolognese sauce and a glass of wine....perfect way to end a stressful of work and holiday shopping

Holiday Brunch

Last week I had a ladies holiday brunch at my apartment...While my apartment is a bit small I have an empty bedroom where I set up the food and make your own bloody Mary and mimosa bar and we were able to comfortably fit eight of us in the cozy space.

The hit of the party was the French Toast Casserole.  I made it the day before and put the final touches and baked it right before everyone came. We also had artichoke pie, pepperoni bread, a frittata, bruschetta, deviled eggs, cinnamon bread, and a fruit salad.  Everything turned out fabulous, it was a great Sunday of sitting around and over indulging!

Frittata made by my mother...

My holiday far.

The Infamous No Pants Incident...

This story may have happened over a year ago but it is honestly the best example of how hectic my life can get...

I woke up in the morning and in my frenzy of trying to get out the door for work I threw on a pair of ultra sheer stockings, a shirt, sweater, shoes, grabbed my purse and ran out the door.  As soon as the door slammed behind me I knew I forgot something... my keys (nothing new...the doorman was used to me coming down 2-3 times a week for a set of keys)  but this time was not as typical on my way down from the fourteenth floor a little girl being taken to school by her father... said "daddy, why doesn't that girl have pants on?!?!?"  OMGGG not only had i forgotten my keys but also my pants...that girl probably saved my life I honestly think if no one said anything I could have ended up at work (in my male driven finance industry job) PANTS LESS
