I had such a great time on VACAY! I went back home to Chicago to visit family and friends. It was so hard to come back to Texas...but i did. So here's a recap of my VACAY:
I landed at 7:45am at O'hare. I went to pick up my rental car and the price they tried to charge me was DOUBLE the price of the quote on my print out when i RESERVED the car. What gives? After a little debate with the sales rep...i left with no car. I called my sister...no answer. I called my brother...no answer. I called my girlfriend that is getting married...she turned around and came straight to pick me up...gotta love friends that are willing to drop what they are doing for you.
So we spent the day hanging out and then went to my brothers house - where i would sleep for the week. We just had a relaxing day catching up and bbqing.
Spent the day with Minee, helping her with last minute stuff for the wedding. Before i went to her place (my brother lent me his car for the week. He works a 5 minute bike ride away from his house so he easily lent it to me...YAY!) I went for a walk. There's a trail near their place so i walked it. I brought the WRONG shoes, because...
I felt the start of a blister about 2.5 miles into my walk. At 2.85 i decided to turn around and walk back home. At the 4 mile mark i felt a cooling sensation...DANG! THe blisters must have popped! I REFUSED to look at it. Once you look - then it hurts. So i didn't look until i got back home and took my shoes off. The entire back of my shoes were covered in blood.
I went to visit my sister for the day
I decided to sleep at my sisters and we practiced my make-up and hair for the upcoming wedding.
These were my sleeping buddies...gotta love them!
I hung out at my brothers all day.
dress rehearsal for the wedding! First we got our nails done...i did a mani and pedi. And the lady looks at me and says, "Do you want to take care of your eyebrows and mustache before the wedding?" DANG! I guess i do...lol
MAID OF HONOR
Then we went back to Minee's and i straightened her hair.
Now it's rehearsal time...
Me and the soon to be GROOM
Minee calls us her UNITED NATIONS of FRIENDS...Filipino, White & Mexican...lol
8/10: WEDDING DAY
The FINISHED product...
And here are some other pics from the day...
Her parents! Her dad is wearing the traditional Filipino dress (shirt)...
My partner down the aisle! He made sure i didn't fall on my face...
The 3 of us (the UNITED NATIONS of FRIENDS) gave the speech together!
Time to come home...how sad! But first i helped my sister in law pull weeds!
But the plane was delayed by 2hrs...
When i landed and went to baggage claim there were 17 of my friends holding up signs welcoming me home! Gotta love it!
i relaxed at home but did hit the pool for 10 laps. I don't know how people do it. It was HARD!
rested at home and cleaned and did laundry.
MOST of this was while on vacation...
