A Different Kind of NYE

I was scheduled to be at Diddy, Maroon 5 and Molly Sims parties at Liv and Blade in the Fountainbleu Hotel in Miami tonight. I was also going to stop by the Shore Club, maybe the new Gansevoort South Beach and probably end up at Mokai while party hopping down South Beach in a celebrity-laden haze of debauchery with dozens of my equally party-loving friends.

It felt empowering when I made the spontaneous decision to step out of my comfort zone and instead hop a flight to meet friends in the mountains Sun Valley, Idaho – where I don’t even get blackberry service and the only celebs I’ve seen so far are Jamie Lee Curtis and Clint Eastwood, who are currently sitting across from me in the Sun Valley ski lodge.

Rather than tequila shots and celebs my night will be full of spiced wine and butterscotch schnapps-spiked hot chocolate – at a formal neon ball! Wait until you see my outfit!

The only thing I’ve skipped on this ski trip is, well, the skiing. I’m not willing to step out of the comfort I have with my bones being in tact. Sadly, my friend Gen Cortese -the hot girl dating hot guy Jared Padalecki on CW’s Supernatural (and in real life!) who I’m staying with up here slipped on some black ice and is in a soft cast and a sling so keeping me company off the slopes – although she did take me to a session with her personal trainer Bill Nerge about an hour after I landed.


I was excited to get my blood flowing with a personal training session but I wrongly assumed Bill would go easy on us given Gen’s injury. Not so much. He had me biking, rowing, stair climbing and on a treadmill at 30% incline – all before the workout even started! I’m currently typing this blog while I’m still able to lift my arms – tomorrow I’m not so sure I’ll be able to. I told Bill, “I better wake up tomorrow strong and skinny.’ He laughed. Are all personal trainers closet sadists? But, that would make me a masochist because I’m going back today for more.

Gotta look hot tonight in my black tie dress, pink neon tights and black Converse.

I hope you all have a very happy and healthy, safe, memorable, joyous New Year’s Eve and I’ll babble to you more in the new year – writing more regularly is topping my new year’s resolutions list. ;) xo
