Anywayz, I would like let EVERYONE KNOW, that we started this trip with MJ forgetting STANLEY!!! (Stanley is MJ's doll that she has had since she was five, he kinda helped her adjust into living with us when she came from her foster home so he kinda has sentimental value!) Yes, this is VERY IMPORTANT that you all know this...sooooo she was like IN TEARS...soooo my sis calls my brother Joe to come back so MJ can get Stanley from the van...
And HERE she is all HAPPY to have Stanley BACK!!!
So thats how the trip started, with MJ FORGETTING STANLEY!!! LOLOL

Everyone kinda gasps when they hear OAKLAND...like its supposed to be really ghetto or something but personally I didn't think it was that bad...like at all!!!
I mean it could be cuz I was kinda like IN AWE OF THE WEATHER....like seriousley...I was like WOWED by it!!! LOLOLOL
SOoooooo then I get my luggage and one of the sides on my handle was broken off!!! I was like WHAT??? The airport broke my suitcase!!!
Soooooooooooo I'm walking around the airport all GHETTO Like with the handle and only one bar holding it up buuuuut THEN I see this other man that had the SAME THING wrong with his suitcase!!! Sooooo i'm like OH, soooo i'm NOT the ONLY IDIOT walking around with a ghetto suitcase!!! And God's like, NOPE, you actually ARE cuz RIGHT as soon as I thought that...SNAP...
The WHOLE handle just broke off in my hand!!! Soooooo then I was just walking around wheeling my suitcase with the one bar and holding the handle in my other hand!!! BAHAHAHAHAHA!!
At least the wheels didn't start breaking off or something!!! Next trip...BAHAHA!!!
Then I like COMPLETELY FREAKED out when we got to the hotel BECAUSE...the whole entire wall in our room was a mirror!!! Like AM I DREAMING OR IS THIS THE CLOSEST THING TO HEAVEN ON EARTH???
Okaaaaaaaaaay we're NOW driving to the Kifle's church...which we were ummmm LATE FOR!!! SORRRRRRY!!!
We kinda like, didn't realize that Berkley was like 30 minutes away from where the Kifle's live annnnnd then we like GOT LOST...OF COURSE!!! BAHAHA!!!
Buuuuuuut we got there RIGHT on time for Bro. Coco's preaching/teaching or I guess you could say TREACHING! HAHA! He preached a good message about the battle on the wall. Basically talking about how not to let the negatives in our life bring us down or to build a nest in our hair! We can't escape life, but we don't have to dwell on it...he said some pretty interesting things especially correlating with Facebook...buuuuut I won't repreach the whole message on my blog cuz I'll prob mess it up. You'll have to hear it for yourself or read the post HERE!!! But the actual message was better...HAHA!!!
