Election Night!

What a celebration we had on November 7!!! The last few days of the campaign were a whirlwind for me because I was traveling up and down the state, doing events with the Gov. I was glad to make so cal my home base for a few days there at the end. We ended up having our victory celebration at the Beverly Hilton, which was super fun. We had a big ass party with a balloon drop and confetti canons, too. When the Governor was called up on stage and the music was blaring and the balloon drop and confetti canons were a go, I had a moment where I almost got choked up. It was so exciting to see everything come to fruition...the months of hard work, the crazy coworkers, the stress, the lack of all became worth it.

After the Gov gave his remarks, senior staff went upstairs to the penthouse floor where we let loose and par-tayed. We had a ridiculous food and drink minimum, so basically all night we ended up drinking champagne. At 2am when I wanted to order more, I tried to get the cheapest bottle, but someone came up and got me two bottles of Cristal. So, I was walking around with a bottle of Cristal in my hand the rest of the night. I think I went to bed at 4am.

In the bar - we basically took over the place!

Conyers, Eddie, Ron, and I. Ron was our beloved photographer and on election night, we decided to turn the camera on him!

Me and my boys!

Laura and I. We planned the events together.
