What a Weekend!

This weekend was definetly eventful. My (future) sister in law, Janet, had her much-anticipated bachelorette party at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. What a BLAST!!

The hotel was beautiful, and we had such a great girl bonding time by the pool the next day. Of course, I can't elaborate on the details... you just had to be there ;)

In all seriousness, though, I was so happy that Janet was happy that night and that she had an amazing time. And I was even MORE happy that she's marrying Gabby's brother!!!
I remember meeting her wayyy before they began dating... and it's really cool to see their relationship blossom in such a beautiful way. I can't believe the wedding is almost here! It's this Friday.. such a big day in Gabby's family's life, but I know that it will only bring good things. A happy marriage, babies (my future neices & nephews, I might add!)... I couldn't be happier for them. :)

After the party, of course, was Mother's Day. I felt pretty bad, since I had been putting off buying my mom's gift until I got paid (on Friday, the day I left for the bachelorette party..go figure). I never actually got around to it, so I woke up early on Sunday morning and told her that I needed to go to Publix to get some "feminine care products".. wink wink.

Anyway, I went off to Publix and picked up some stuff she needed for the brunch that she was preparing for some family members who were to stop by later. I wasn't sure she would like it, but she absoloutley loved her gift!

My cousins and aunt came over for brunch, as well as my uncle. Mom made a delicious egg casserole thing.. It sounds nasty, but believe me, it was amazing. Afterwards, we went to visit my grandmother. I was so happy to see her in such a good mood! She had trouble pinning the names on me and my cousins, but sitting there looking at her grandchildren talking and laughing together, she said (in Spanish), "I'm so happy that you are all here!" It pretty much made my day. I know she might not know what's going on all the time, but she still had a wonderful time with us. And we were just as happy to see her up and about. :)

All in all, it was a terrific weekend! (Pictures from Mother's Day to come) ;)
