heading out to go to the meet up!yay!
It's almost 4pm and almost time for me to log off my computer at work and call it a day. Tonight, i'm going to the pre-meet up in Hermosa Beach!I'm so excited.So the minute my boss left her office i immediately signed out and off i go! Got home at five, showered and got ready.I dont know how many people would show up that night but i know that all the people i know for sure are going.I'm very excited!
It's 6:30 and just about ready to go, grabbed my keys and started driving to Hermosa Beach. I live in Santa Monica and from where i live is about 17 miles to drive to get to Hermosa Beach.I was a little worried about the traffic, i'm afraid i'm going to get stuck in the fwy so i planned of driving early.
Understand that the place i'm going to is very difficult to find a parking let alone that same weekend is the volleyball tournament. So i got there around 7:30 and it was perfect! i found a good spot to park. Crossed the street and next thing i know, i'm inside the restaurant, it's called the Shore Lounge. At first, i said hmm, i dont see everyone! am i too early? Where's everyone? i heard a laugh and i said , that's them! I saw Angel first,then Tracy, Erin,Julz. I met Sebastian, for the first time who is visiting from Germany, really nice kid and Jamie from Arizona, who i finds him very quite. They were finishing up their food when i got there but i was so hungry and needed a drink so i asked the server to see if i could order a first a glass of wine then food.
He served me my wine and ordered an appetizer, crab cake.
I didnt like the food i ordered for some reason, but i ate it anyway since i was starving.We all chatted for few more minutes till Melanie showed up! It was really nice to see her again! Alice and her friend showed up too. Joy showed up and everyone was so glad to see her and of course me.
After the bill came, we all asked to move to another table which is located outside the patios, perfect for smoking/non smoking section.Table was small so we asked the waiter to get us another one so we can have a longer table. While paying for their bill, before i could order i asked the waiter for a separate check, since i came in little later, i was so sure he heard me.When the bill came, Angel notified me that they were short of ten bucks and had added my drinks in their bill, so i gave my money to her and told me to make sure the waiter doesnt charge me again.
Sure enough he did!Few hours later, fire and police department walked in and and started checking the place out, turned out the place was way too overcrowded and had asked the bouncers to ask all of us to leave the area and do a recount! Yay! I was bummed but I did not want to get back in anyway. The rest of the TB gathered in the corner and we all decided to leave the place and go somewhere where we could get something to eat as in for breakfast at 2am. Someone suggested Denny’s diner in Sepulveda (Torrance). I was like, uhmm..it’s out of my way but I guess I could eat breakfast at 2am! Hahaha! I droved and followed Angel’s car, somehow I lost them for a minute and then that’s when Erin called me and asked where I was at.
I didn’t know the area very well but I managed to find it. Mel and Tracy on the other hand went to another Denny’s place thinking it was the same place where we at. dont think she was happy about that lol.We all got seated, some ordered coffees, Tracy ordered this yummy chocolate shakes it looked so good especially with the whipped cream on top!I just ordered water to start with.Once we all ordered our meal and fed our hungry stomach, we all came to say goodbye for now and possibly be seeing them again tonite for the real meet up!..I left first, since i live further away from all of them.It was almost three when i left the diner, and drove off.I wanted to find the nearest freeway but i've been driving around in a circle and could not find the damn freeway! Oh what shall i do? should i stop at the gas station and ask? i attempted to do it but i got scared and just kept on driving.
Dinner at the Shore Lounge
I finally found the way to the freeway and was soo relieved that i managed to go home safe and alive lol.Next time i'm buying a GPS so i dont get lost hahaha!
Nice pic of Julz!
Woke up at around 9am, today i'm going to the beach at Hermosa to meet up with Mel,Tracy and the girls to hang out at the beach, i drove to Hermosa again to realized that there is no parking to find! I called Mel but she said they were on their way but need to stop at the grocery store first to get food for the beach, so i said okay i will stop at the store to get me some water and fruits.I did my shopping then called Mel again to find out where they at, mean time i called Angel to see if they were coming to meet us at the beach. She said that they will meet us rght after they check in at the hotel.
It was passed noon and i was so closed to just go home becaused i could not find a darn parking! I told Angel that i'm just going to meet them tonite instead but she talked me into meeting them at the hotel and just hang out by the pool and chill for a little bit til tonite.Since i have my beach wear with me, i drove and met up with at the Marriot hotel in Hawthorne.I hung out for a couple of hours but had to leave, i have to pick up my friend for tonite plus i have to get ready as well;DD
yeah that's what i'm talking about;D
