Saturday morning we got up early and went into the city for our cousin's bat mitzvah. It was nice. She did really well, even if the cerimony was a bit borning. Then we went over to the hotel room that her mother (our mother's first cousin) got for us for the day so we could crash and change for the party that night. Cimmy was extra tired so she went to sleep. Aerith and I went to Stage Deli. We got nice big open smamaches! yummy yummy. Then we walked up to the park and cut through the Plaza to get to FAO. Yay for FAO. We were just like kids in a toy store...oh, wait. They have the most BEAUTIFUL barbie dolls! I just drool! Then we walked down Fifth for a while. Stopped into the Godiva store. Evil evil place of chocolate. Back in the room we rested and go dressed.
OMG, oppulent isn't a rich enough word to discribe the party! It was this place that caters to events. So amazing. For the first hour all the grown-ups were downstairs with an open bar (mmm...) and some crackers and cheese and fruit and there were waiters walking around with apitizers. All the 13 year olds were upstairs in their own area. There was mingling and booze and stoli vodka and...yeah. Then after that hour they let us into the big room where there were at least 6 projectors making images of purple balloons on the walls and way too loud music. Aerith, Cimmy and I were at a table with our cousin's aunt, uncle, cousin and her partner (from the other side of her family). The cousin and her partner seemed to be the only other people there who were our age. There was dancing and a candle lighting ceremony were our cuz celebrated people in her life. Cim and I were called up to light a candle. They played "we are family" for us. I HATE THAT SONG! Oh well...*sigh* Then there was a salad. After that there was more dancing. I think that Cim had every guy at that place stairing at her ass! Then dinner was either stake and mashed potatos or salmon on cous-cous. I had the stake. It was excelent. And the wine...oh my god. Such good wine (both the red and the white). After dinner was more dancing (to really bad teeny-bopper songs) and then there was a buffet for dessert. Yum. Ice cream and cake and toppings and...this was one stuffed 'Thene. Then Aerith, Cimmy and I said our good-byes and grabbed a train back to SLC.
Sunday we woke up extra late, went to bruch and then Aerith and I headed home.
Now it is time for lunch.
