A guest blogger’s recap on the Grabby’s. Jess (@blasphemy_xoxo) is not a Porn Mom, but she is Levi’s Porn Sissy!!
This weekend had been planned since February. I was at my sissy’s (@kittys_devil) for Valentine’s Day and we made the plans then. It was something to look forward to with real life going on.
I left my house Thursday night to go to Michigan so that Jen and I could catch the train Friday morning, which ended up being an hour late, and 2 hours late to arrive in Chicago because of engine troubles. When we arrived at Union Station the line for a taxi was long, so Jen and I decided we would just walk to the hotel It was only about a mile we do that every day. Except we didn’t take into account that my phone GPS was going to take us the wrong way. So we ended up somewhere downtown when someone stopped to ask us where we were going as we looked at the phone confused. He told us we needed a taxi because “That’s way over there”. Apparently we were going in the wrong direction the whole time oops!!
The first hour upon getting to the hotel was a whirlwind of events we walked into the lobby and saw Chris, Levi’s roommate. Of course we had to give him hugs! Then Jen saw Levi and all but tackled him! I missed the first meeting sorry everyone but the bellboy just wouldn’t give me the luggage tickets. Then we finally got to meet up with our friends Kim (@zoodlemouse13), and Lisa (@besafe71). We were all starving after having early flights and rides. Walking out of the elevators in the lobby we ran into Ricky (@rickyromanxxx)! He was so sweet and kind. He even went to lunch with us at the hotel’s restaurant. It was so much fun having that time to get to know him better.
Now on to Friday night festivities: where we all had the time of our lives. After lunch we had to rush around and get ready because the amazing owners of Cockyboys set up a special meet and greet for Jen and Kim to meet Benny and Levi. I was in the shower when they found out what was going on and had to come out to see what all the commotion was about, good times lol! After the meet and greet we went to club Side Track for a Cockyboys meet up for the fans to mingle with all the boys and have a few drinks. We had great conversations and took tons of pictures, it was truly amazing! But the night isn’t over yet because JJ, Benny, and RJ still had a surprise up their sleeves. They took us to dinner at a beautiful outside dinning pizza place where the conversations and drinks continued. But the funniest part of the night has to be Bravo getting kicked out of out cab twice; he was a good sport about it though. I didn’t want to go to sleep that night afraid I would wake up and it would all be a dream.
Saturday is here!! We had the option of sleeping in since most of us were taking this as a mini vacation to get away from real life. I will have you know that we were up at 9am with nothing to do till 2pm! IML was just amazing! We arrived kind of behind schedule…don’t ask me how we managed that, but we did. Walking into that building was a rush of adrenalin, we were going to the Grabby’s later that night and we were getting ready to watch the boys perform for us. When we got to where the boys were we were greeted like family with hugs and kisses. All the guys watching wanted to know if we were related to them and how we knew them. All I could do was smile and say we are all just friends they are not our brothers. Of course you know that we took tons of pictures while we were there, my phone wouldn’t even run the camera it got so hot from all the pictures and vids. After it was over we gave all the boys hugs and left them to get ready for the book signing. We ended up walking back to the hotel with Duncan (@iamduncanblack) and Dillon (@dillonrossi13), those boys are truly the sweetest.
The book signing was in our hotel on the 4th floor in this private room with a view of the city streets. The whole set up was very casual again just another chance to get to know the boys better. Then it was time for JJ to give his thank you speech, which was so full of love that is had most the girls in tears, love that man! Now time for more pictures! I swear I took over 1000 pics in a total of 2.5 days. Toward the end of the book singing us girls went up to get ready for the Grabby’s. Now originally we had planned on wearing dresses, the struggles I had with my dress are a whole other story, but let me tell you the struggle was real! But at the last minute I decided that instead of wearing my brand new dress that I went out and bought Wednesday night I was just going to wear a nice outfit. So I had to rush upstairs with a half hour left before we were due at the cars and change into my dress so I had evidence of wearing it. When I walked into that room I felt like a princess all the boys hollered and whistled it was amazing! Now time to take quick pics and rush back upstairs to change into the outfit I was really wearing. Yes, I made it to the cars with time to spare!
The Grabby’s were held at the Metro, which is gorgeous inside might I add. The award show was a blast even though we didn’t get to sit with everyone else. The hosts were all gorgeous and hilarious! But I have to say that my favorite part other than being with my girls was all of the trailers that we got to see.
AFTER PARTY…….well what we thought was the after party but it was the after, after party, we were a bit early. Since we were early we (Jen, Duncan, Bravo, Kim, Lisa, and a couple others) decided that it would be best if we got something to eat before drinking. After 20 minutes of discussing where we were going at 11 at night we ended up at Portillo’s. I swear this place had the biggest selection on hotdogs ever! Of course I didn’t eat hotdogs (gag!) I had chicken fingers while everyone else had hotdogs or Italian beef. Back to the after party! Now when we left there was only the 8 of us when we got back the room was packed, wall to wall, with the friendliest people you will ever meet. With an open bar, let’s just say some of us made it a mission to get as drunk as possible (I love you sissy!). Even at the end of the night with all the puking it was one of the best nights of my life hands down! (Yes I know I said that about Friday too).
Sunday was goodbye day, and it SUCKED!! JJ, Benny, RJ, and all the boys met us down in the lobby because they were going home. We all got hugs and when they pulled off Jen, Kim, and I all cried like babies. There was a good laugh out of it though, as we were standing at the window a lady walked up to us and asked “Are y’all the Cockygirls?” We laughed and of course answered yes! We eventually ended up back at IML to see the remaining boys Dillon, Duncan, and Bravo. After an hour and a half conversation with Chris and Daniel we made it back to our hotel to met a friend, Angela (@abynormal22) that came to stay the night. It was a nice distraction from just being depressed all day. We went out to dinner at Chili’s and had a nice conversation over our meal and drinks. A nice stroll back to the hotel gave us a chance to take “tourist” pictures for our families. Back at the hotel it’s time to rush and make bracelets for the remaining boys, it should not have been as hard as it was (sorry Duncan). In all it was a good day for starting off so depressing, had a great time meeting a new friend!
Yet another Goodbye day =,(. Kim was the first one to leave at 8 in the morning, it was hard but we kept it together that is until Jen and I made it back to the room. It seriously hit us like a brick wall, we lay on the bed for a half hour to an hour crying and listening to music (sorry Angela). The rest of us left the hotel around 11:30 to get to our trains on time. This ride was much better than the one on the way there, but it made for a quicker goodbye =(. There weren’t any tears saying bye to Jen until I was in the car and down the road. We will just not mention the week(s) of depression afterward. This weekend was truly incredible, and I’m so grateful for it.
