Last Thursday night Greg and I received a call from his Aunt asking if we would like to meet her and the rest of the family down in Santa Clara for Greg’s cousins dance competition. Of course I immediately said “Hellz yes!! So You Think You Can Dance here we come!” Then I thought this could be the perfect chance for us to have a mini vacation with a hotel, comfy bed with WAY too many pillows, hotel food, expensive drinks, breakfast in bed, with some dance sprinkled in here and there.
It really was JUST what we needed!
We took the train down to Santa Clara Saturday morning, and met up with Greg’s family at the Hyatt (which we got a good last minute room deal at. His aunt paid more than we did for her room which she booked at a “discounted” rate a few months back. WINNING). We sat around in the lobby and watched the Toddlers and Tiaras type scene going on around us. It was totally like watching a reality show on TLC live and in person.
Then my life flipped upside down when TYCE DIORIO walked by us!!! I don’t do well with celebrity sightings. I look like a deer in headlights and stalk the person with my eyes debating whether I should take a horrible zoomed in picture. For those of you who don’t know who Tyce is I demand you begin watching So You Think You Can Dance because it is the best show in the world and makes Dancing With the Stars and American Idol look like crap under your shoe.
Once Tyce left for his much swankier hotel (I’m sure), we decided to go out and explore the extremely boring town of Santa Clara. Which means we went to Dave and Busters and played skee-ball. I should really be a professional arcade game player. Look at all the fricken’ tickets I won!!!
Here’s Greg trying to win me a giant blue monkey, which a stupid little kid ended up winning right after we left the machine.
After I collected my prizes consisting of nerd ropes and a light-up ball (which I left at the bar later) we gave the rest of our tickets to a little girl so she could get a buttload of candy and rot her teeth. Then we went back to the hotel to watch the competition. Greg’s cousin did amazing and her team ended up sweeping the whole competition. It was pretty awesome!
The best part of the whole mini vacation is all about breakfast in bed as you lay on the 5 million pillows.
And of course the obligatory picture through the peephole…
