For weeks I had been trying to plan a little get together with the help of one of my best friends Cara, who lives in NYC. I also had been asking my boyfriend Daniel what he thought we should do and no one seemed that interested in making plans! Granted my actually birthday isn't until the weekend after, but this was going to be my celebration in the big apple. I didn't want to seem too bratty so I didn't push the issue that much, even though I had already bought the most perfect sparkly birthday dress! Finally we decided on a place and Cara sent out the fake Evite, made all the fake makeup and hair appointments and pretended to set things up with the venue we chose. At the same time her, Daniel and my one of my other BFFs Rachael were scheming behind my back planning a surprise bday party for Friday night, not Saturday! Rachael had told me she was coming to Chicago for my actual birthday but really she was secretly in New York.....it is all very confusing!
Our first flight was supposed to leave at noon but was cancelled because of weather in NYC, so they put us on a flight leaving Chicago at 7pm. I thought that was fine since we didn't really have plans but Daniel had us switched to another airline leaving at 12. Ok, nothing fishy there, he just wanted to get there sooner! That flight was delayed two hours but we finally got to New York around 6. As soon as we landed Cara wanted me to meet her at a hair salon where she said she was getting her hair done. We couldn't go straight there and then she was ignoring my texts, but I threw my luggage at the hotel and tried to hurry to meet her. Plans changed and then Daniel was instructed to stall at our hotel room...I was ready to go meet up with Cara so had no idea why we were waiting. Fifteen minutes later Rachael shows up at my hotel and the whirl wind begins! I had no idea Rachael was even in New York! She told me to get myself together and we headed to get my hair done...unfortunately I had missed my makeup appointment because of the flight delays. After getting my hair done we went back to the hotel to change and another group of people showed up. I was told we were going to get drinks and dinner and the plans were still on for Saturday night. I was a little confused but of course just went a long for the ride. While I finished getting ready Daniel went ahead to get drinks and we were to meet them at The Bubble Lounge.
