Goin' Back to Cali

The time has come, I am off to California tomorrow morning for my brother's wedding. I am nervous and excited, excited about the wedding, nervous about leaving Mexico after so long. This is my first trip out of here in four years, I just know that I am going to be suffering some culture shock. My folks already have all the shopping planned out, here's hoping I don't have a major meltdown in Target with the huge selection of groovy stuff we can't get down here.

It's going to be a quick trip, too quick really. I leave tomorrow and come back on Monday. There will most likely be some tears this weekend, tears of joy (who doesn't cry at weddings!?) and tears of sadness when I leave. I am really looking forward to an adult weekend, this is the first time I will be away from Max for so long and I desperately need a "mommy break". Hopefully the house and my two boys will be intact on my return. I've got some lovely friends helping out with Max care, one in the afternoons while Hubby is working, the other on stand by for the weekend in case there is a break down on Hubby's part. He's a great daddy, but Max is a cyclone, having a back up plan for the sanity of both is a necessity. Good luck all (insert very evil laugh here)!

So, I most likely won't be blogging until my return, I wish you all a peaceful and happy weekend and look forward to catching up with you all when I get back! Hasta pronto!

(The weather outlook for southern California is making me VERY happy, sure looks a lot nicer than what we're getting here!)

The great thing about going to a same sex wedding is that you can dance with both partners! Kick up your heels, have a blast and bring back some stories for us!

Have a great time sweetie! I'm sure Max and Hubby will be just fine!

I hope you have a wonderful time, and just enjoy yourself. You will miss your boys, but sometimes a break is very needed if you are a mommy just to refuel. Have a great time!!

Have a blast, Canuck! If things get too Not-Mexico for you, ask the fam to bring you to Alvarado Street to re-group. Congrats to the happy couple and just enjoy a great trip to the States. And ENJOY TARGET!

Congratulations to your brother and his partner. I am more than a bit envious of your trip to California, have lots of fun, take lots of pictures and don't worry everything will be fine at home.

Just for the record... Canucka is freezing

Have fun amor.

I hope you're having fun right now girl (despite your hubby's comment above -LOL).

I remember those trips NOB back when I was a kid. There was always three imperative stops that used to drive us completely bonkers: Target, Half Priced Books and McDonald's.

Have fun and can't wait to hear how the wedding went!!!
