Gaby, Lizette and Syndia

It's time to get up and go to the airport. So my sister and I did all of what we needed to do. We also needed to drop off her kids at their aunts' house. On the way there, I am calling my friend Gabby because she is supposed to go with us. She couldn't find her freaking passport! So she is going crazy looking for it while we were on our way to drop off my nieces and nephew. After dropping off the kids and now driving to the airport I call her again. It's been maybe 30 minutes since I have talked to her. She still has not found it and is still looking. I tell her that once I get to the airport I will ask if she would be able to get on the flight without it and I will call her back. I am so desperate for her to go. She's my BFF! I want her to go. So when we get to the airport, I ask the airline prepresentative what she can do since she cannot find her passport.

Yvette and I
The rep says that she cannot get on the flight without it, so she will not be able to go. Well, this news is like a stab to me because again,  I really want her to go. I check myself and my sister in to the flight and then Yvette leaves to park the car and will meet me at the gate. She works for AA and she doesn't need to go thru security since she can enter the backway. Lucky her! I then go to another line and ask another airline rep because I want a 2nd opinion. I have to have a 2nd opinion! Well, she tells me the same thing. She will not be able to get on the flight without her passport. So I call her hoping that she found it and tell her that the reps said she wouldn't be able to get on the flight without a passport. She tells me she hasn't found it. She thinks that her youngest daughter got it and lost it. I was really sad. Of course I felt bad for us because this was our vacation, and now it was my vacation. She didn't go at all.

 

After that (being sad for a while), I started walking towards the gate to meet up with the other girls.

As I am passing by McDonalds I see Syndia waving her arms at me. She is having breakfast with Diane and Lizette and I join them. Midway through breakfast Lizette looks out and says, “Is that Gaby?” Mind you, this is not my Gabby, it’s another Gaby that was going on the trip. So she starts waiving at her and Gaby joins us at the table. After we all finish with our breakfast we head on over to the gate. That is where we join Cynthia and Elizabeth. They are talking to a couple that are sitting there and they happen to be Elizabeth’s neighbors. They are also going to Puerto Vallarta.

How weird is that?! We all are there minus my sister because she is at her job with her co-workers just waiting until the last minute to join us at the gate. I have her phone so I decide to call her boyfriends phone because I know she is with him. He also happens to work with her. She answers the phone so I knew she was with him. I tell her to get to the gate because we are almost boarding and she tells me she is waiting for the bus that will drop her off at the Delta terminal. She arrives maybe 5 minutes later. So we are all there! Syndia, Diane, Gaby, Lizette, Elizabeth, Cynthia, Yvette and myself! We start boarding the flight and we are so excited! I have gone on several girl trips to
Las Vegas, but never to another country! This is going to be so great! VIVA PUERTO VALLARTA!
