I had to consciously make sure that I did not let it slip to the wrong people, or update anything on the internet saying that I was going up to Providence, for my best friend's boyfriend's surprise birthday party!!! If I were to say that I was heading to Providence, I know that Mark would say to Missy, "Umm Danielle is coming up, but she isn't staying with us? Are you guys hanging out?"...and then the whole thing would be ruined!
Malomar and I loaded into the car, and drove right up to the old homeland. Seeing this sign always makes me feel a little sad, so Malomar and I skipped Roger Williams Park this time, and instead met Rebecca at Bell St Dog Park so Malomar could run around with his long lost pals.
A whole slew of people met at Mr. Taco in West Warwick to surprise Mark for his birthday. The place actually took a reservation of 30, which make Missy super happy, and I was stoked on it when I ordered a margarita and it was less than 6 bucks!
I did the whole NYC to PVD trip in one day. Managed to see buddies at Federal Hill Tattoo and catch up, hit up the dog park and see Becca and Pete there, grab a cupcake from the cupcakarie, and not blow a surprise party.
