The styling counter... with my cherry bag!
We got up early, once again.  It was about 8:30 when we all started our hey baby talk to each other and reminiscing about the night before.  Julz, Erin, Mel and I decided to head to the clubhouse to have breakfast before taking a shower and we leave Tracy behind to begin getting ready.  The Residence Inn we were staying at offered a free buffet breakfast and we just couldn't resist.  It wasn't bad, they had warm food which is way better than cold continental breakfast. 
After grubbing,
we pile back into the room, start getting ready for our day at the OC while Tracy brought her breakfast back to the room to eat.  We didn't want to leave her there by herself.

.. how rude that would be!!!  NO Travbuddy left behind!!! lol :-)


So the plan for the day.

Head to  my hood and have a killer time!!  Sheila, Nancy, Alice, Sebastian, Charles, Kathryn and Jamie were considering joining us.  Actually, we already planned on kidnapping Sebastian! lol  My agenda included all you can eat sushi, games at Dave and Busters and a party boat cruise in Balboa Harbor around Lido Island.  Sounds fun no??
We again split up.  Jamie, Alice and Sheila drove seperately down to OC.  Charles and Kathryn already made it home and were going to meet us there.  Tracy and Mel left to pick up Sebastian at Hermosa Beach and Julz, Erin and I headed back to my place to drop off our luggage and pick up some stuff for the boat.
The girls race!

We get to Maki Maki and we end up walking out!!!  They insisted we either all have all you can eat or we all order off the menu!!!  11 people, and they only had 2 tables occupied!!  I would say they turned away revenue of at least $250!!!  Crazy. 
Everyone ended up coming who was interested w/ the exection of
Nancy.  We opted to hit the Yard House for lunch and since so many of us were so jazzed about eating sushi, I think about 3 of us still ordered Ahi steak sandwiches!! haha

After lunch, we said goodbye to Kathryn and Charles.  Kathryn had other plans and Charles was going to meet us at the boat.  The rest of us headed to Dave and Busters and played endless games of basketball, skeeball, racing, shooting... even virtual jump roping!!  We put all our tickets together and agreed to get something for Sebastian for putting up with us all weekend.  We got over 2000 tickets!! whooo hooo rockstars!! haha
We got him a shot glass and a teddy bear we named later that evening.   Totally a fun place to go with a group of friends!
