Visas, friends, baby showers, puppies, and more

So today I got my VISA to go to Brazil. HOLY COW who knew it would be so hard to get one.
I had to fill out applications, take pictures, bring itineraries, yadda yadda and more yadda yaddas.
I went with my gal pal Wei (thanks girl) to San Francisco to go to the consulate. When we arrived we grabbed a number. I looked up and saw that they were on #180. We were #195. It took HOURS to get to #195 but when it was all over, I got my visa.
So it's official, Brazil says they are crazy enough to let me in, I wonder if they know what they have done! LOL Brazil will never be the same again.
I can't wait. I'll be there in a few weeks. EEEKKK!
I'll be in San Paulo and then I'm going to Rio!!

On Sunday Christiane and Pattie through a baby shower for Angel. It was soooo beautiful! There were a lot of people there and we had the best time EVER!
I'll post pictures soon.

Like usual gotta say how grateful I am for my friends!!! ERIN, I love you girl!!!! You're a lifer (someone you know will be in your life forever!) PO...girl you are my sister!!! I love you my darlin!!! I love you Christiane, Pattie, Wei, Linda, Jeannie, Emelyn, Carla, Satyn, Janice, and Nicole. You gals ROCK!

Biscuit, omg he's so stinkin' cute and we love him!!! The happiness he has brought Sierra is amazing!!!! I need to take more pictures for you to see him.

Okay gotta get back to getting things ready for this weekend.
Have a good one.

Oh, I need to get my passport renewed and I'm really not looking forward to it. But I'm sure Brazil will be worth all the grief. Have fun and take tons of pictures.
