Family is a beautiful thing!

Friday with Mom:
Friday was a great day! My mom and I spent quality time together by running errands, watching TV (House of Cards) great show BTW,  and visiting Babies R Us! That store is a bit overwhelming (and expensive) but it also got me very excited.  Friday was also amazing because my GMA came into town. She has never come to visit me so I was so honored that she came. She even rode the train and bus which took about 9 hours to get to San Francisco. What a blessing!

Once I picked up my GMA, I picked up my friend Francis, who insisted on cooking for my family and me. Below you will find the delicious plantains, island-seasoned chicken, salad with pears and craisins, and amazing mac and cheese. Below you will find the cook Francis and some of the food we had. Amazing!

GMA Reveal:

On Saturday,  I decided to tell GMA about the babies. I explained to her why I went to India and why I was thinking about changing cars to an SUV. She was amazed about the lengths I would go to to have these children. I have no idea why I was so worried. She was so excited and happy to hear the news. She told me that this would be our secret until I was ready to tell everyone. She also said she would pray for them everyday. For anyone who knows her, they would know She also welcomed me to the "Twin Mom Club".  I had to smile. =) She had twins too. She told me that I shouldn't feel overhwhelmed; it is very doable. That made me feel very good and put me at ease.

The rest of the weekend, we visited a ton of thrift stores and watched all of the movies that were nominated as Best Picture for the Academy Awards. So many good movies. I love marathon-ing with my fam. Tomorrow morning , GMA leaves to go back to southern California and Tuesday morning my Mom leaves, which I am a bit sad about but grateful they were both able to visit me (and each other).
