Hello Big Apple

I am back in the Big Apple ....... so its been over a week since I have arrived from Sydney and wow how the city has changed. But let me start off with with my arrival and work my way around the other details.

I was lucky enough that my friend Alexia came to pick me up from the airport with my other cute friend Alma. They both looked just as cute from the last time I had seen them. We hugged and kissed and hugged some more and I told them about my flight. When I got home Cornell and Miguel were just a few blocks away and we met up at my house for a bit. I spoke to Erika and Hector to let them know I got in OK. Then Ken got home and he had little Welcome Home signs which were cute.

we then went over to Thai NY for dinner and it was a big group of us there. It was Me, Ken, Cornell, Miguel, Alma, Alexia, Erika, Hector, Jonathan, and Aaron. The food was alright but the company was perfect. It was really sweet that everyone there wanted to hear my stories and welcome me back to New York.

The next day which was Sunday I woke up early in the morning and went to my mother place so I could surprise her. I never told my mom which day I was coming back so that it would be a surprise. My sister let me in ( she looked so cute and big )

and I walked into my mother

s room. She was laying down.... she saw.... it took her a few seconds to process....and then like a crazy women jumped out of

bed and started jumping up and down kissing me lol. She was telling me how excited she was and that she had no idea i was coming. My mother looked so beautiful. It seems like she hasn't aged a bit. She looked exactly the same, if not better then went i left. We talked and chatted about Sydney and she cooked lunch for me. It felt good to see her and feel her warm hugs and kisses. I left my moms around 4pm and i went home so that I can get some sleep since there was a big party to go to that night.

Since it was memorial day weekend and my return my friends thought it would be fun to get festive and go to a party named Alegria. Lets just say that I had a blast!!! I caught up and saw tons of people I knew from before and I jiggled and wiggled all night long. Erika did her dance for me and hector gave us the loopy twirl lol.

Later in the week I joined Club H gym which is this gorgeous gym located only a block away from my apartment. Its luxuries like Equinox but at the NYSC price tag. I have gone for a work out twice and I love my gym. Its clean and beautiful and full of all the amenities I could possibly need. I LOVE CLUB H

That same week I went to dinner at Brandon’s place and can I just say that I love his apartment and his dog. We started off the evening with some wine and cheese platter which i thought was very classy of us.......... then a few hours later we did it college style and ordered a cheese pizza ........ good times good times

I also went to the pier this weekend and over to Uno in the meat packing district. I saw Big boy Erik Rhodes there with his Boyfriend Anthony who I actually met like 6 years ago. I took a few pictures so I hope you enjoy....

I still have a lot of catching up to do with friends and I am trying to fall in love with NYC once again to

o. One thing thats funny is that while I was away in Sydney I felt like it had been forever since I was in New york.... and now that I am here its Kinda feels like I never left. Not sure how to explain it.

Anyways that's all for now
