James Franco's childhood home
Upon arriving on his childhood street, we were quite aware that there were a few gardeners watching us since the street was completely empty, lol. Nevertheless, we got out of the car & posed in front of the house before hastily retreating so that we didn't get thrown in jail for trespassing :P
Tada, Franco's childhood home
Since we were already in Palo Alto, I decided to take Paula to the Stanford Shopping Center. We stopped by Sprinkles where we shared a strawberry cupcake & smore cupcake *drool* We then stopped at Cocola Bakery for their happy hour. We decided to get the fruit peach white sangria & I gotta say it's the best sangria I've ever had! It's been over a week & I'm still cravin' this stupid sangria, ahhh! We wanted a second one...too bad Vinh was at work *pouts*
With our awesome sangrias
We walked around a little more before Sonya called so that we can go take Paula to karaoke for the first time. We ended up at Gamba & sang for about an hour. Lots of Gavin songs were sung *giggle* We also learned that Katy Perry, Maroon 5 & Adele songs were a bitch to sing, lol!
At the end of our karaoke session
Afterwards, Sonya drove Paula & I to Vallco so we could wait for him to eat at Benihana. We basically stuffed ourselves silly with food, but had a good time doing so. We met up with Steve & Derrick afterwards for karaoke since Steve missed out earlier. The first place we hit up had all their rooms booked so we headed back to Gamba, but they were full, too. We ended up going to Yogurtland for some froyo first & then Steve gets a call saying there's a room available. We arrive at Gamba & found out it wasn't them who called Steve. For some reason, both workers apologized profusely & gave us a room to karaoke, lol! We probably spent 1.5 hours in there. Paula & I had to do "We Belong Together" by Gavin DeGraw again! Then Vinh & I had a duet of sorts with "All You Wanted" by Michelle Branch *giggle*

I somehow ended up inputting "Friday" by Rebecca Black & we all about died laughing singing the horrible lyrics, lmao! After karaoke, we called it a night & headed home so we could get some rest since it was near midnight when we finished :P
