It’s the birthday boy’s big day and today was all about him. He finally figured out what he wanted to do, so we packed up our things, some more than others, and jumped in the car. I had the luxury of falling asleep in the back. My wake up call came from a huge sign that read “Diner” oh, I was ready for some grub. The California turkey burger sounded delicious, and it definitely looked pretty. It was a little on the bland side, but let’s face it, when you’re starving everything tastes amazing.When we arrived at the hotel, we were a little disappointed that the shuttle bus service that was offered was no longer available. Thank goodness for Uber, it actually ended up being cheaper and we had more control of it. This has been my second time in a casino, but I didn’t have the balls to gamble quite yet. Chris was persistent on me “getting my feet wet”. I was so nervous. I started on the Wheel of Fortune and did pretty well for myself. Heeeeey!
The men were more focused on the machines, and I was getting frustrated because I like to understand what I’m doing instead of just pressing random buttons everywhere.
I was pretty entertained with a group of Dominican guys who were at a blackjack table, so when Chris jumped in, I was so hype….. and what made it even better, he won!
Our Uber ride back was popping, especially since I was playing dj. Our Uber driver had an ipad set up in the backseat, which was a pretty perfect touch. I started blasting all birthday songs back to back, and even the driver started getting excited with us. When we got back to the hotel we made one last toast to the birthday babe, because the next day, it was time to drive back. Ugh.

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.
