Lazy Sunday, especially when we were supposed to leave the house earlier than we did. The plan was to go shopping for Christmas presents. That plan derailed as soon as in conversation about Chris’s goddaughter, he instantly remembered one of his baby cousins was turning 1 today. I’ve known Julio, the dad since my junior high school days, so it was nice to see him and meet his beautiful girls. After the leaving the “Frozen” themed birthday party, I went to go snatch up my baby brother Jeremy.
I saw baby, like this boy isn’t grown. He’s taller than me and has the voice as a grown ass man. He’s so handsome, I swear he’s growing up way too fast.
Shopping was done in a hurry, and it felt like we took more time drinking fruit shakes and eating sandwich pizzas. Chris had the brilliant idea of playing mini golf, and that’s just what we decided to do. I mean, we were debating go kart racing and lazer tag… but next time, next time…trust me.
Mini golf was super cute, everything was pitch black with a whole bunch of obstacles in neon uv paint.. my kind of expectations! hahaha
I’ve been meaning to make some uv painted canvases and body art, maybe this was just the inspiration I needed.

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 pantyliners.lol 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 !
