We got to surprise my cutie wittle sister over the Memorial Day weekend!! I was so beyond excited. My AWESOME mom was the mastermind behind it all too. THANK YOU SO MUCH MOM!! For my graduation gift, she got James & I a rental car so we could drive down and meet them in Vegas at Blair and Rachel's house to surprise them! It was a plan that started out as a joke, but the more we talked about it, the more we realized it was TOTALLY possible! So we swore each other to secrecy and devised the bet surprise plot ever!
And James was such a trooper. He needed to go to classes on Friday and I was willing to miss all but my 9am one, and he made it work so that we could go down to Las Vegas for the weekend to hang out with my family! My mom, dad, and little sister Qiqi came and then our good friend, Jacob, came along for the ride! We spent all of Friday driving down. About a quarter of the way, I get a text from Rachel saying that James had posted he was on his way to Vegas!!!!! I had one. Serious. Freak out. Haha I mean, we laughed but I was so mad! So I quickly thought of something and told her that JAMES was going down there with a friend to help him move in. I also said he'd be coming to stop by and maybe even stay the night. After a LOT of lying, she bought the whole elaborate story (I said I was doing thank you's and couldn't come) and so when we FINALLY got to Vegas (Mom & I were texting pretty much the entire trip and I was gushing over with excitement at our little scheme!) I was about to explode.
So we got there and James & Jacob went in while I quickly hid behind my family's truck. I texted my mom and told her to alert me when I should come in so she could record it. When I finally got the text that said "Now!" I came up to the door, opened it really fast (actually almost hitting Rachel!) and the squealing began!! My mom & I couldn't stop laughing as Rachel (who was crying) and Qiarra jumped all over me. It was seriously so awesome. She didn't suspect a thing.
During the weekend we got to stay there, we helped Blair & Rachel move into their new house. All of the men did all of the electronic work while the girls put furniture together. It was really fun actually! I liked helping Rachel decide where to put things and how to set it all up. I was so glad we were able to help them because there was a LOT to do. We played games, went shopping, saw them give talks, ate yummy food (Dad even cooked Sunday roast!) and we went to a BBQ at Blair's mom's house and I got to swim with my mom & Qiarra, which I haven't got to do in FOREVER.
