Blacklight Slide

I’ve been meaning to write, but without the images I feel like I’m half-assing a post. I keep forgetting my memory card at my beau’s apartment, which means my posts have been a bit delayed. For now, since I managed to work on them a bit, I have few pictures, but bear with me, because there’s way more to share with you guys. And you guys know how much I like sharing.
My siblings and I were excited for The Black light slide, so excited we committed to  purchasing the tickets back in March! I didn’t even bother telling Chris I bought him a ticket as well until maybe like July. So now that he had it in his calendar, it was time to make moves.I decided to dress in all white, so when I’m splattered with paint I would glow a little brighter under the black light. Turns out my neon green socks did better that I expected. I was told to get there early, to avoid the long lines, and I’m pretty glad we did. We got some beers at the bar before we started, a little something to wake us up.The lines were a little annoying but the slide was everything. I bought some too tiny inflatable tubes, and it was funny seeing a grown ass woman with a baby floatie. Didn’t matter though, my butt fit perfectly and it did it’s job.

The slide had glow in the dark paint, so every time we got wet, it only meant we were going to illuminated more after. Once it was dark that’s when  the party began. The DJ was blasting top 100’s and we were dancing our wet, glowing butts off. Under the florescent lights we all looked amazing.

I took advantage of how bright even was looking, the colors were mesmerizing,  and  decided to just keep snapping away. Taimane and Christian’s new addition is going to have some cool ass parents.Tonight was wonderful. We danced, we slide, we glowed. Ps. Check out the illustration.

Tuti’s Performace

I met up with Jen in Fort Independence with a huge bag of overnight clothes and plans to head to Connecticut.
Plans quickly changed. Destiny, which we all call “Tuti” and is Jen’s niece, was having a performance in her school today.
So we packed up all the kiddies and headed on our way to the MNR. With all the noise and hyper moves everyone quickly scattered giving us places to sit.
That’s Michael, Jen’s brother hooking me up with some chicken wings while we wait for our train to arrive!
Jesse, the youngest brother,Jen and I.
Since we had no napkins to clean up after those chicken wings, to clean up Justen’s hands Jen had the mastermind idea of using Oh, man……Poor Justen, he looked humiliated, especially after I snapped a pic!

After finally arriving, a few stops before Poughkeepsie, we were picked up and drove to the school. Though I didn’t get a chance to grab a pic, the school looked beautiful, spacious and almost as if it was fake and able to be used as a backdrop for some cliche highschool movie.

Tuti did great though. She first sang Adele’s Someone like you, then Ceelo Green’s Forget You. of course, it has to be forget you, keeping it classy for the kids.

She then came out, sang and danced a trio in her stunning glittery red dress. Yes, the definitely stole the show!

Here’s a few pics of her special night. ( You guys should already know when you click on any picture it becomes larger )

Everyone was so proud of her! Once the show was over, we all headed out to Giacomo’s for pizza. Where my plate was looking way too good for my own good. I had pizza, a philly cheese steak, philly cheese chicken and some organic fresh mozzarella pizza that was waaaaaay too good!

This family is so inviting, you can clearly see how much love they have for one another. I’ve met many of them on separate occasions, but there’s something about special occasions, I felt so welcomed and grateful for being able to share this moment with them.

Look how cute they are !
Especially with all these little princesses running around who are so fond of their uncles and daddies. Too adorable!

Look at how awesome my plate is, well was..yum! After getting fat we all headed to Mayra, Jen’s sister house and started talking and then a nerf gun fight started!!

I was ready for war.. especially since there was only gun! I would catch the ammo, stuffing my bra with the neon green bullets until I was ready for war!

Once things calmed down we had a little glow in the dark, uv, blacklight fun.

Of course I couldn’t resist leaving my mark with some glow in the dark markers on Jen’s leg =]

Until next time readers !
