bring your party pants...

....because I'm leaving for Australia (Feb. 12th) and we are gonna party like it's 1999!!!
Or I guess 2012?? 
Umm, I'll have 99' please. 

No but for reals, I'm having my going-away-party with all (most of) my friends this weekend and I couldn't be more ecstatic! If you know me at all you know I LOVE parties... 


Except, this party will be a tad different. It's gonna be a little bittersweet I think.. I've never been away from all my loved ones for this long before. So, as TOTALLY AMAZING I know Australia will be... saying bye is never easy. I've decided that I'm just gonna tell them all an "I'll see ya later!" Instead of goodbye...
That seems much more fitting. 

What do you guys have planned? 
I hope whatever you do, I hope that you do it with nothing short of all you've got! 
Love you all. 
Mean it.

I would have been there if this weren't my first week back to school, and if I weren't coming in next weekend for homecoming :(

The O'Connell's you passed was probably the newer location, it's the old one that they are bulldozing on Sunday! It makes me so sad!

And yes, I'm fortunate that I got to celebrate there, two of the girls that went with me last night weren't even 21 and they were sad they couldn't celebrate at O'Connell's.

Love you girlie.
