Whew!!! I made it back.

The scary family drove up to Oakland, CA this past weekend for my cousin, Maverick's traditional chinese wedding. The Prius did 105 without a wink.

Friday was great, with the ever present threat of barfing fresh on the girls and Mikeys mind.
We got there with no problems!
Clean and sunny the whole way... girlies even got to swim in the hotel pool... 'cause I'm good like 'dat!
I just want to take a shower and get cleaned up and wear my killer hot outfit that I got just for this occasion... ummm leather boots...
"Hey lunchbox... where is the red duffle? You know the one with my PILLOW on top of it and all my clothes?"...

"Baby, the car is empty, I brought everything in that was in the trunck"...

Ohhh, that sick feeling, I felt light headed and a bit giddy..

"Sweetie, I dont have any clothes!!!!! underwear, socks, BRA!!!"
.... it was looking really bad for MIkey....
His recovery.... "Let's get on the BART and go to San Francisco's Nordstrom, you can abuse the card"
He has learned quite alot in 10 years. xoxoxoxo

So we did... He went to the cafe with a full bar on the fourth floor, and I went Uber Shopping.
In the best of times, I hate buying bras.. this was the worst of moments to have to find one that fit!
I dont know about anybody else but at every special occasion, my mom feels my back to make sure I am wearing an appropriate bra. She's a freak like that.

1 hour & 45 minutes later and a flatten card we hopped back on the train and made it to rehersal dinner in Jack London Square in no time flat.
It was classic family reunion moments. Lots of pictures and little kids. My two were covered in lipstick from the Aunties kissing on them. I have like 11 or 12 Aunts and like 15 to 16 Uncles.
My mom's family is from China... another blog
All tired out and full of banquet food, we walked back to the hotel with the girls
and fell into bed..
which I will hereby declare "The Crippler"
When a bed is too small for me, you know that it must be absurdly small.

On Saturday we went back into San Fransico with girls and took them to the big Christmas display at Macys on Union Square. Can you believe it, it wasnt crowded?... why?
BECAUSE it's only HALLOWEEN!! Retail Freaks!
It was also pouring rain and Zoe was miserable in the rain. Mira loved it.
What can you do?

Anyway that afternoon was the ceremony at this beautiful church with a view of Oakland Bay, then a 7pm reception. A 10 course chinese meal began at 9pm. The girlies were going crazy by then.
In the classic chinese tradition we had, soup squab, duck, chicken, and of course several steamed fish.
*see Mikey's picture*
Zoe had a great time and caught the bouquet. Mira had had enough by 10pm that I had to take her back to the hotel where she quickly fell asleep.
I wanted to go to sleep but not on the crippler, so I slept in Miras bed.....
ohh such a terrible night of sleep.. it was the cripplers twin.

The next day was the drive home.
Mira cried "I want to stay here, I like all of us sleeping together!"
oh sweetie.. i need to get home to some clean underwear.
