The Best by Far

Updated on March 31, 2012

Big Bear

So far so good

This is my response to the question. “what is the best time you had in your life, so far”?

I decided to create a hub on this question because I couldn’t decide on one thing that has been the best so far because there might be a few!

So far? I would have to say there are a few events that have taken place in my life so far that I can say that might be the best time in my life by far.

First I would say my cousin Kenny’s wedding when I was about 16 years old, then my little trip that my friends and I took to Tijuana when we were teenagers, the day I graduated high school, the birth of my kids, when I got married, and our little trip to Big Bear!

My cousin Kenny at the time actually I know he is still in the army but at the time he was a general (doctor) and he married his assistant nurse. In any case, they had a wedding in Calabasas, Ca. and I was in it too. It was so cool it was the nicest wedding I had ever been to at the time. I was picked up in a limousine and the brides cute brothers were in there, this crazy funny guys from Michigan whom have never been to California were so excited that they were throwing money out of the limo. Oh my, I caught the bouquet and one of the brothers caught the garter belt; I think it was one of my most embarrassing times ever. The brother that caught the garter belt told the groom (my cousin) that he will put on this little show/dance for the girl who catches the bouquet. To make a long story short I think the song that was playing was I’m to sexy it hurts, me on a chair in the middle of the dance floor, and my shoes were flying across the floor! Till this day I have not seen the video but, it was so much fun and it was such a beautiful wedding!

Another time was when I was about 16 or 17 years old and my friends at the time were Rosie 17-18 yrs old and Christina which was a year younger than I was. We had a friend who owned (my friend Rosie’s moms friend) a tour bus company and was taking senior citizens on a tour to Tijuana. We asked him if we could go along for the ride because it was just going to be a one day trip. Well the night before we went my friends and I stayed up almost all night long talking about how much fun we were going to have, lol. Therefore we were knocked out on the bus the whole way there. So we get there and our friend gives us about $40.00 dollars to buy something to eat and maybe some souvenirs. Well we didn’t buy food we ended up getting these free tickets to this bar for some free tequila shots and it being Tijuana we don’t get carded, so what do we do? Yup we go to the bar and have a few shots and then they give us some margaritas for cheap so an hour goes by and by the time we are done we are stumbling down the stairs, trying to get to our tour bus. Luckily I knew my way around more less because my daddy use to take me, my mom and siblings over the border to go eat lobster almost every summer. It was also in the day time so it wasn’t too scary or anything. Now that I am a mother to two girls believe me I realize the dangers we put ourselves in but at the time it was really fun and crazy but we had fun. Actually it was kind of scary because none of us had an Identification because we were not even eighteen years old well Rosie was but she didn’t have one. Well they knew we were all drunk and were giving us a hard time but, they finally let us through the border and it was so funny because Christina was such a white girl from the valley, Rosie was straight ghetto girl and I was in between. I still have the picture we took riding donkeys and the three of us were wearing sombreros (Mexican hats) I think our hats said Cisco kid, poncho, and Cochina. The guy we went with was so embarrassed and mad at us, but afterwards we were all laughing about it!

As for the day I graduated, the birth of my kids, and the day I got married (I am actually divorced now) you can basically figure why those some of my best times (or not) but I am sure you know more less.

I would like to jump to the Big Bear trip which is the most recent and was with my favorite people in the whole world my mom, my two girls, and my significant other. Since my boyfriends birthday is in December (so are my two kids) his mother gave him a gift which was a time share to a few different places that we could choose from. Well my cousin at the time was going to be having a wedding in Big Bear and guess what one of the time shares was just a few miles from the resort where the wedding was going to be.

It was so much fun and the wedding was so beautiful now I would have to say that was better than my other cousins wedding. My mom loved the time share (we all enjoyed it) my kids got to play in the snow for the first time and I was with my significant other and overall we had a wonderful time (well I did)!

Well I did a lot of reminiscing writing this hub so thank you for the question, and I am sure I have many other (god willing) best times headed my way!

      This was a very fun hub for me to read - kudos. I can relate being in the San Diego area. Your adventure to Tijuana was a fun and influential trip. I bet that experience formed some life long decisions :)

      Just reading over that little bit of the trip I see maybe 100 hub ideas. Some I would consider are: the myths of Tijuana. Home cooking & street vendors. Get medicine cheap, but be careful. What does the border patrol check passing through the border. Living in Tijuana and working in Southern California. etc.

      And, Big Bear, what an awesome pic. We are fortunate in Southern Calif we can go to the desert in a few hours, the mountains, the beach, and of course Las Vegas is a little longer drive but it is there.

      I guess it goes back to what you said "I decided to create a hub on this question because I couldn’t decide on one thing." I agree with that from my experience in life and here at hubpages with writing.

      Have a fun adventure here Sassydee . . .

      Thanks for sharing. I can see why you could not decide what to choose. It seems like you have had many best times so far, and I am sure many more in your future.
