Lobo Love...

Ahhhhh Vale do Lobo - my happy place! You might remember myself and Mini zipped off on a trip there back in June with beautiful twins, V & Kerrie and two of their pals from Ireland - check out our write up here. We just had the BEST time - five days full of girly giggles, sun, sea, champanski and lots of full-on 23-year old behaviour! With that in mind, you can imagine the excitement and squeals that could be heard for miles when a Facebook invite dropped into our inboxes from the twinkling twin-set inviting us to their 30th Birthday party... in Lobo!!! We were IN - late September, five days, fifty of us, last chance for summer sun and bad behaviour!




In June we stayed at the twins place within the resort, but this time we had no choice but to upsize because of the sheer volume of people flying in. Cue pictures of our magnificent mansion...
 
 
 
 
 
 
So, this was home to eleven girls for the next five days - myself, Mini, Birthday Blondie V, Rocket Man Fran, Dolphin Diver Becca, Fierce and Fabulous Ngozi, Mrs. Sergeant Pepper Holly, Anna-cougar, Power-Bitch Cathy, our Wounded Soldier Sarah and hmmmmm Sophie. We all rocked up together and spent the next hour running around the house at breakneck speed shouting 'OMG OMG OMG' exploring every inch of our palace - five huge bedrooms and V's master suite, a sprawling balcony with plush seating, a killer games room, curved grand stairs leading down to the pool of all pools and views sent from heaven. Let the F-U-N and pool lounging begin!
 
 
We arrived on the Wednesday with the big 3-0 party set to take place on the Saturday. Meaning we had two days and two nights to build momentum AND momentum we built! Ours days were mostly filled with this...


...recovering from the evening before! We managed to cram in a trip to oceanside beach bar and restaurant, BJs, where we were serenaded by the bold and bossy Ngozi who volunteered to sing us an Amy Winehouse, Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Everybody Needs Somebody to Love medley ... oh-so-special indeed! Two rip-roaring house parties back at the mansion consisting of a cardboard box championship, more pool antics and homemade killer cocktails all set to Elton John's greatest hits - the only CD the mansion owned that was worth sound system air time! All topped off with a daily dose of Monty lovin', the local bar/club just down the road!





 
So Saturday rolled in after the blur of the last few sleep deprived and fun-filled day and nights ... some of us were feeling fresher than others but there was no denying EVERYBODY was on-board to make sure V & Kerrie's night would be one to remember! Things started off in a civilised manner with Champagne, Happy Birthday singing, present giving and group photography...






 
But very quickly, the champagne was replaced with seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time cocktail creations like tequila, vodka, peach iced tea and coke cooler (!!!), drunken dancing courtesy of DJ Fortune and the most ridiculous pool sesh! Picture evidence as follows...



How do I sum up the fun ... Trip of a Lobo-time! Big love and thanks to V & K-Fed for putting on the best time - we love you twinnies. Now when can we go back for round III???
