Unlikely Martha
Me Weekend

Sisterly Love

*drumroll* If you didn’t catch a clue from the title of this post, I went to Philadelphia. One of my very good friends Keysha was celebrating her 30th birthday and a surprise party was being thrown in her honor. Keysha made the trek for my 30th so I was definitely going to make the trip for hers..

My action packed weekend started on Friday night at the Tastmaker Magazine launch party. The party was fabulous and took place upon the rooftop terrace of the Renaissance hotel here in Atlanta. I got there around 8pm with the intention of leaving at 10pm in order to get home and ready for my 6am flight..so yeah, that was a bust I didn’t get home until 1a. The party was fantastic, I was there with my girls Niya, Erika and Trina from Baby Shopaholic.

As if winning the shoes wasn’t enough from the event here..She won a HP smart phone at this event. The weird thing is she told me that she is known for winning things at every event she attends. Hmmmm at this point she is 2 for 2. I hope some of that magic rubs off on me!

So then I rush home and pack. Needless to say I didn’t go to sleep at ALL. Left the house at 4:30a for a 6a flight.

I'm so above the clouds

We got to Philadelphia around 8 and headed to Keysha’s house. She was in Atlantic City when we got there. We helped with some last minute preparations and oddly enough when she arrived we were upstairs getting ready. We ended up rushing outside without combing our hair or changing our clothes. We just hung out like old times. I miss my girls, it was great to have us all back in the same place..its been awhile. Anxiously awaiting my next girls meetup out of town. Did someone say Vegas?!!
