Visiting Tucson, Arizona

After working 6 straight nights last week, I packed and headed to Tucson, Arizona to attend the 50th birthday party of my friend, Rowena and 23rd birthday party of her son Nico. With not getting enough sleep for 6 days and being too stressed out of the driving style of my husband (he raced with other crazy motorists the entire 6.5 hours from Las Vegas), I arrived haggard at the party. Nevertheless, I had a blast! I met and saw lots (as in lots like, more or less a 100) of Filipinos, got to dance a little, and enjoyed the appetizing food.

 Almira and I pose for a photo right after we found each other at
the Desert Diamond Hotel and Casino. 
She flew all the way from Virginia just to attend Rowena's birthday celebration.
 With the birthday celebrant Rowena and Almira. It was really great seeing them again! We belong to the same town back in the Philippines, they are neighbors and I live few kilometers away from their place.

 The party favors. 
Hubby was like, "What's in the box?"  
It's a miniature globe made of glass with a holder. 
It's really cute!

 The delicious Birthday cake of Rowena.
I did not have a photo of Nico's cake but it was equally delicious.

Four Points by Sheraton Hotel accommodate us.The rate is very affordable. The room is not that spacious but it has a safe for my important stuff, a refrigerator and a microwave oven. It is located very close to the Tucson Airport, 8 minutes away from the venue.

This road sign has been seen many times in Arizona.
This is the story.
I cannot find a photo of me and my husband together at the party, I guess we did not have one. That sucks! Anyhow, we drove back to Nevada State the following day.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a good one!
