Volcano Tea House - Las Vegas

After lunch at Pho Kim Long Vietnamese Restaurant, we went over to the neighboring strip mall for some boba tea for the road.

My passionfruit green tea, $2.99. So yummy. I saw them put in a huge dollop of passionfruit syrup so it was very passionfruity.

Like the older '88's leopard-print cardigan? I was teasing her for wearing it over a floral jumper so I had to include it in the photo.

My cousins' drinks.

The original plan was for me to hang out in Vegas with lil' sis and maybe check out a buffet until her flight that evening. But I was still feeling a little sick and just wanted to go home. So we said our good-byes to the rest of the girls and lil' sis and I went to get gas before I dropped her off at the airport.

The traffic heading back to L.A. was insanely slow. Lil' sis managed to snag a standby flight back to San Diego and arrived there before I even made it to Primm! That's right. It took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to crawl 33 miles. At one point, I saw cars taking the side road next to the freeway, but when the road abruptly ended, instead of turning back, four trucks just kept plowing through the desert. Insane!

The line to take the Primm exit was so long that I decided to bypass it completely. Right as I passed Primm, cousin A called to tell me not to exit. She did and ended up stuck in the parking lot despite having left 45 minutes before me.

Traffic was so awful that I didn't dare take a break until Barstow. It took me 7 hours to get back to L.A. Crazy! I was sooo tired. I stopped off at Noodle World - Alhambra to grab pad Thai and tom yum kah for dinner.

Meanwhile, after an hour of trying to get out of Primm, cousin A gave up and the girls went back inside to go shopping. At 8 p.m., they finally headed back and it still took them 6 hours to get home.

What a crazy bachelorette party weekend.
