The countdown to my cruise: just 1 more day till departure!!! =D

This afternoon Aric, Ashlyn, Wey, and I picked up Cin, Ivy, Bett and Wil at LAX. We drove back and grabbed a late lunch at Oscars. Bett was craving Oscars and was all excited when we went. Afterwards, we dropped off everyone's luggage at home before going to our manicure/pedicure appointments. After getting pampered at the nail salon, we did a bit of shopping at the Marketplace. Today was nice and relaxing .

For dinner, we went to The Yard House at The Spectrum. Food was really yummy....all the girls shared a bunch of different appetizers for dinner. Today's weather was warm and unusually humid. We walked around after dinner for a bit. Wil and Cin got one of those temporary airbrush tattoos for the cruise. Wil got a little dragon and Cin got a band around her ankle. Bett urged me to get one too...but they didn't have a stencil for "THUG LIFE". That would have looked great across my neck or chest. HAHAHAHA! Seriously though, it's not the same getting a temporary tattoo when I already have a real one. And one is quite enough for me.
The Spectrum was super crowded tonight, so we left and headed back home. Everyone had food coma and a couple of them had dozed off on the sofa. I spent the evening cleaning up, cooking (so Aric would have something to eat after I leave tomorrow), hanging out with my friends, and watching TV.

Ashlyn was such a nightmare tonight. She refused to go to bed and stayed up crying. *sigh* A night before my trip and she was behaving in a way that was making me reconsider whether I should go or not. *Ugh* But I realized that after a long day of playing with all her "aunties" today and completely skipping her nap, she was just deliriously tired. Hopefully she'll be better tomorrow morning. Hopefully!

Can I just tell you how much everyone packed?! Each girl brought a huge 26" roller bag. It made me want to bring more stuff. But after spending a long time last night minimizing the amount of clothes, shoes, and stuff to pack, I decided against it. If I forget anything, I'm sure I can bum off one of the girls. hehehe

Another short post today. I better get some shut eye...we have to be up early and get to the docks in San Pedro. Thanks to everyone who wished me a fun trip. I promise...I will! hehehe
I'll take lots of pictures! Journal posts will resume upon my return. Bye! =D
