Julia & Noel’s Wedding

This past weekend was filled with reunions. Whoop! And it’s nice to see that friendships haven’t died. I mean, yeah I’ve been gone for almost one year. But it’s nice that I’m able to talk to them like I use to. Like nothing’s changed. I know I say that a lot but I’m just so thankful for it all.

I was lucky enough to stay at an old friend’s place. Thanks Jane, Chris, Long & Vy!

I bought them a cake to say thank you. That fruit was delectable.

I even got to see Liliana, Marisol, Andy, Jakob, and Nayeli. We went to Kona and had a fun time just talking and making new memories.

I even got to spend one on one time with Liliana. I miss those. They always make me so happy. I can always tell her SO much. It’s crazy.

Sunday was Julia and Noel’s Wedding. Look how precious they are. The love is in their eyes.

I’ve known them since they started college. And they’ve both grown SO SO SO much. They learn from each other and no matter how far apart they are their love stays strong. They never give up when times get rough. They are the definition of love.

High school sweethearts win for this round. Wish them all the best!

They had little snacks for cocktail hour. Yum!

And an open bar … say what?! The little shot glass in the back was our souvenir. Love love love! This would be a Cinnamon Whiskey & Coke. So good!

I drove home right after the wedding. I had a lot of fun. Dancing, photo booths, seeing the two love birds finally celebrating their tying of the knot. Congratulations you two!

Since I came home super late … early Monday morning that is … I took the day off. Got manicures with Samantha and had a lunch date. We went to Ikea, got her a dining table with chairs, helped build one then went to happy hour with Mallory.

We call ourselves The Powerpuff girls. Mallory is blonde … therefore Bubbles. Samantha is a redhead … therefore Blossom. And I have black hair … therefore Buttercup.

I’ve never seen the show but I found it funny that we were like that.

Love them. I get to see them again tomorrow night! Holla!

Trudy’s and Amy’s

During Halloween weekend, we had some adventures.

Me, Jenny, Tammy, Brian, Richard, Susan, Peter, Michelle, Wilson P., Long, and Steven all went to:

We had to split up with seating so I sat with Peter, Susan, and Michelle.

It comes with free chips and two different salsa dips. We had already eaten halfway until I realized I had to take a picture. Whoops!

Us four ate at least four times this if not more. It was that good!

Beef Fajita Ala Mexicana [tender beef fajita meat marinated in a soy-ginger spice blend and sautéed with onions, cilantro, jalapenos, tomatoes and lime juice. Garnished with a small salad and sliced avocado. Served with Spanish rice, borracho beans and a choice of tortillas] | $12.50

I got a choice of corn tortillas. Omgosh … I about died. The meat was so juicy and succulent. I was very full. I wasn’t even halfway full. (Maybe it was the chips?) But I made sure to finish ALL the meat. Because it would be a waste if I didn’t.

After we ate, Wilson P., Michelle, Steven, and I were heading back to the apartment and stopped by

Irish Crème with a waffle cone and sprinkles | ~$5

I’ve never had ice cream with alcohol before so it was a good experience. I couldn’t taste the alcohol but Wilson P. and Michelle thinks it’s filled with it. Hmm …

This was what sparked my ice cream with sprinkles addiction with the last post I made. It was that good. Sadly Amy’s is the best ice cream place I’ve ever been.
