Blog 327: My NYE/ 35th Birthday Party Pics

Photobucket Album

My Birthday falls on New Year's Eve. I hated it growing up. Forget the curse of 1 birthday/ Christmas present... imagine being a kid and never getting to have a party on your birthday because everyone's parents are going out. The last several years my birthday has taken on a life of its own:

2007 - Talib Kweli at The Roosevelt Hotel
2006 - Erykah Badu and dead prez at the HOB Sunset
2005 - Kanye West in Las Vegas
2004 - Diddy's party in Miami w/ 7 of my girlfriends & then bf
2003 - Diddy's Party in Miami w/ same bf
2002 - Diddy's Party in Miami
2001 - NYC w/ friends

Needless to say that I wanted to bring in the last year of this decade and the milestone of turning 35 a little differently. On Saturday before my birthday, I decided to throw a kid-friendly party at home. By Tuesday, 44 people had confirmed. My Wednesday morning, 61 people had confirmed. Roughly 40-45 people, (and 10 kids,) showed up at my house Wednesday night. My daughter threw a mini-party upstairs in her bedroom for the kids complete with Wii, video games, board games and snacks. The grown ups celebrated with dominos, great music, birthday cake, lots of food, champagne at midnight, stimulating conversation. It was a great time.

Enjoy this photo gallery from the party! Click the photo above to view the gallery. I deleted all the pics of the kid at the party at this is an adult blog, but those that attended the party can access the pics on

I have so much champagne and booze left over I'm thinking of throwing a party for Inauguration day!


  1. The closer it gets, the sicker I am that Im not gonna be able to attend. Im gonna miss meeting you, Kaylani and Marie in person, Im gonna miss Vanessa's party, and now I see your signing with Kapri Styles, someone else who's work I am a fan of. Never had the chance to speak with her but she seems really cool. Oh well...hopefully next year (been saying that for about 6 years now tho).

    Looks like you guys had a good time at the party with the dominoes and the night in. I cant lie though; had I been in attendance I probably would have tried to sneak some Wii time in. My sister has one and we have a blast on it when I come over.

  2. you and Crystal Knight share the same birthday. So let me wish you a happy belated 35th birthday. I'll be turning 35 Feb. 6th, so I'm right there with you, Sinn.

  3. I wish I could say I was 35, LOL! But truly, what a wonderful way to celebrate your day! It is so great to see how centered you are, Sinn. Here's to a great '09 for Jax, you and your daughter!
