Surprise Getaway Weekend!

What an amazing weekend I had. My friends Jeff and Francis took me (and Cece) on a surprise getaway weekend, where I had no idea where we were going or what we were doing. I got two instructions 1) bring a bathing suit and 2) bring a set of retro clothes. And I did just that! Pics soon to follow.  They picked us up on Saturday morning and we had a nice breakfast waiting for them. My other close friend, McFierce, looked after the dogs for us (so nice!). We headed up north and ended up at a hotel in Sacramento, where we laid by the pool and just relaxed, ate, drank, and were merry! After that, we headed out to an undisclosed location, while listening to old school hip hop! We finally ended up at the Cache Casino where we gambled doing Blackjack and Slots and got free meals! Around 8pm we went to the internal club where we saw none other than Salt N Pepa! It was an amazing experience! They performed all their hits and even invited some people to be on stage while they performed ‘Push It’. Jeff, Cece, and I hopped on stage and were dancing hard in the background. It was amazing. After the song was over, I gave both Salt and Pepa a hi-five! It was unreal! Cece and I were shaking afterwards! What an unforgettable experience. Afterward we gambled some more. All in all, I lost about 35 bucks, which I didn’t think was bad! We then headed back to Sactown, where we went out to a club Faces, which was completely mixed! I had a great time and the music was pretty good (although I wondered why they would play Al Green in a hip-hop room, talk about killing a certain mood)! The next morning we lazily chilled in bed, had brunch, and then headed back to the Bay Area! It was truly an awesome weekend. I’m so thankful to have Jeff, Francis, and McFierce as friends and family. The planning and efforts to keep it all a secret was just so touching. I don’t think anyone has ever done that for me, so I definitely appreciated it ALL. What a blessing to have them in my life. This is a great reminder on why I moved back to the Bay!

On a different note, I wanted to send a big CONGRATULATIONS to Fred. He is a new Daddy! (!
He is so awesome and has been such a great support for me in this journey. We basically talk everyday about one thing or another.
We were all convinced that he would have two girls but instead he has two boys. I guess you can never know until they come!
I am so happy for him and that the babies are healthy! What a blessing!

After getting word yesterday from Fred, it really put a fire under me because these babies are coming sooner than one thinks so I have got to get it together. I have my visa appointment tomorrow, and I’m looking at SUVs all this week. My plan is to buy on this weekend. I’m also in the process of getting all my India paperwork together! OMG! These babies are coming, y’all!
