Day 4 of my 30 day BC - A picture of my favorite night

Day 4 - Post a picture of your favorite night

Wow this is a tough one. Who can just pick out 1 night and say  "This one is my best night ever!" I mean come on, I'm 47 years old... there's been a LOT of favorite nights! For which I will consider myself blessed. 

I don't have the pictures on hand for it but(and this guy is the only one who is safe from having his pic on my blog...for various reasons) the weekend I went to NYC in 2003 with the guy i was in love with  ranks up there. The actual night I am thinking of, we went to dinner at Joe Namath's Steakhouse, then to see Les Miserables on Broadway, -  drinks afterwards at an awesome place HIGH above NYC called The View and the bar/restaurant rotated so you were looking at a wall of windows and the city at night. Very romantic, very big city (for me... my first adult trip there) and just an all around amazing night!

Another fantastic night was the June 20th, 2009. The night i held a beef and beer to benefit the Police Survivor's fund for the Philadelphia FOP.  Man what a great night - friends and family filled the place, 6ABC news and Fox 29 were there, give away gifts galore and food and drink. And all for a fantastic cause. The money raised went to the surviving families of police officers killed in the line of duty.

That was also the night I got re-acquainted with my old high school love , who came to the party. Christ, it had been over 30 years since we had seen each other , and yet when he walked in the door, I knew I was in trouble. LOL And I was soooo right.

Then there was my birthday party in 2009. Above mentioned high school man, still in my life. Again family and friends and a dining room at the Blarney full of fun. It was my first birthday, since the divorce, where I was actually dating someone and was in a happy and somewhat normal relationship...emphasis on SOMEWHAT lol...

It was so much fun catching up with everyone and having them meet John. It was even more fun drinking and dancing the night away... and of course my card from the man, which was all i asked for, ended up being this-

Friggin CLOWNS! Did I tell you I hate clowns?

Yes...clowns. The only person in the world who could have gotten away with this and by the way... that is my own mom in the front there w/ the red and blue on. And look at Nicole... hesitant to do it cause she knew I would freak. LOL . You can imagine my reaction...well after I came out of the bathroom, I decided it was pretty damn funny! And I let him live LOL

So there you have it. 3 of my favorite nights. And I didn't even mention Alex and Jimmy bilotta's wedding,

 or the night I broke my toe and knocked myself out on a date at a strip club LOL. Oh the discoveries made that night... Or Michael Decillis's Casino themed going away party I threw when he moved to Vegas,
