Alright people I'm back from Florida, with a smile on my face, a bit of a tan, and a twinkle in my eye. This morning, I woke up around 7am and slowly sat up in the room I was staying in. I had already packed my clothes the previous night and only had out the items I would be wearing on the plane.
I took a shower and was ready. Kai was up and James was also getting ready for work. I got Aislyn ready and we were out of the door. We dropped James off at work and I said my goodbyes to him and then we took Aislyn to her baby-sitter.
Kai and I went to this Beauty shop, ULTIMA a place that is almost the equivilent of SEPHORA which is nation wide. Yet this place had damn near all the high end hair products, some makeup lines (not as good as SEPHORA), and a full salon service. Pretty damn nice I must say. Then we made are way to ROSS (a different version of TJMAXX and MARSHALL). Then we made are way to LINEN'S and THINGS and checked on some items there.
My final stop was at the MALL OF MILLENIA. A high end mall that pretty much would put the SAINT LOUIS GALLERIA, PLAZA FRONTNAC, and WEST COUNTY MALL to SHAME. Pretty much just make them look like NorthWest Plaza. I went to a few shops and did some last minute shopping but I did make one splurge purchase, at the SUNGLASS HUT I bought a pair of VERSACE wrap around sunglasses. Please don't ask how much:)
After going through the mall we notice that a strong storm has hit and Kai gets me to the airport with about an hour to spare. I get my bags checked in and we give each other a hug goodbye. I watched her pull off and then made my way through the hustle and bustle of the airport crowd. My flight left on time despite the weather and I also was on a FULL FLIGHT. Had a lil boy sitting by me with his father who was holding a lil baby boy. Ask me if I got any peace and quiet?
Finally touched down in Saint Louis after 2 hours in the air, and surviving on complimentary peanuts, Air Crips, 2 cups of Sprite, a naughty book, and my PSP. I texted my friends that I had gotten back in town about 6:20pm and my mom picked me up. I'm back at the house now just listening to an old Whitney Houston tune called STEP BY STEP. And that's exactly what I plan on doing.
Again I want to thank my best friends aka my sisters for sending me on this wonderful trip and to Kai, James, and Aislyn, thank you for being such wonderful friends and hosts but most importantly for being such wonderful family. I needed some time to rejuvenate myself and I felt that being there really helped. Thank you all so much;)
