Hi all, Andie here! I am on the production team here at Vidicom. When I am not booking shows, talking to clients, and running the production floor, you can find me having a classy cocktail with my friends, answering texts on my fit bracelet, and of course planning my big birthday!
Next week, I will turn 23 years young! I am very excited to celebrate with friends, family and my Vidicom pals. Though I am happy with the plans I made on my special day...of course I wish I could be traveling. I would like to use this time to share some of my favorite birthday memories! The first, is when I was 12 my family and I went to sea world to see my favorite animal.....seals. Though I was never sure what they did besides balance balls on their nose, their cuteness alone captured my heart. Now a days I know that there are 18 species of seals and I must say.....I love them all. Anyway, on my 12th birthday we went to Sea World and spent the day with the seals and saw an amazing show. I still have the stuffed animal from that day (which I named Paul) and still has a special place on my shelf.
The next one would have to be my sweet 16! Me and my 3 closest friends (Shouts to Martha, Kerri and Wila) spend a long weekend with my aunt Mary in Paris!! This was so much fun and we talk about it all the time. Upon arrival we had a cake made by the best place in paris. This cake was a coffee ice cream cake and had Oreos on the side...talk about #heaven. The next day we walked around and did lots of touristy things and saw all the sights. Of course being girls....we also did a lot of shopping. We had the best slumber party of all time and even saw some famous people. The year was 2007 and this was around the time when Akon was topping the charts. At this time he was sining my favorite song and 2007 club hit "Don't Matter"...as if it was fate we happened to walk into the Gucci store and there he was! We started to sing "Nobody wanna see us together, but it don't matter noooo" and he smiled and waved and responded "Cause I got you." You can image that we nearly fainted and that image is imprinted in my brain.
Finally, we come to this year. Regardless of what Blink 182 says...everyone likes you when your 23! This year me and my friends are going to hit the NYC bars and singing all the hit songs. Even though Akon and Paul wont be going me, they will be with me in spirit. I look forward to adding this birthday to the list of epic and amazing days and living it up in 2015. Stay tuned for more great stories from our Vidicom team...coming soon!!
