Fun in the sun
Palm Springs is always a good time. I have been out there many times with Carly, but this time we had B with us! We started with a quick trip to the market.
I started the fire and it was almost dinner time!!
(Carly marinating the lobster in lemon juice, butter, garlic, pepper, and salt)
We had onion, squash, shrimp...and of course lobster tails for each of us!
Lobster has been a staple for our trips to the Springs.
After dinner we got dressed to go out.

Wedges by ALDO
Watch by Michael Kors
Picture time!
We always make sure that we take a few pictures before leaving the house, just incase our makeup falls off in a hot stuffy club haha.
We hit up a local night club called Zeldas. We have been there one time before and had a great time. We had a ton of laughs, danced until our feet were gonna fall off and then called it a night.
The next day was a chill day.
We hung out at the pool for what felt like hours and tanned and truly bonded :]
My details:

Why does it seem like we just ate...hahah. It was lunch time and on the menu was white wine chicken, Greek rice and Greek salad. It was B's turn to cook and it was better than I was expecting. LOVE YOU B!
The weekend felt like it went so fast! It came and went! I missed Jude so much so I could not wait to go home. We started cleaning the second night, and the morning of the third day we were pretty much ready to head home. Weekends like these are the best. We had such a great weekend that we wont forget anytime soon!

Pre Birthday - I love my girl friends!!

Lucky Ducky
Today I had early birthday lunch with my Dad, hes doing so much better than the last time that I saw him so I was very happy to spend time with him away from the hospital. When I walked through the front door I instantly noticed that there were decorations up. I figured maybe she was gonna have a party or something...I'm a ding dong! duh! It was for me!!! My roommate Crystal decorated our apartment with black gray and pink streamers, hung banners from the ceiling and hid balloons in my bedroom!
I was so shocked and felt sooo special! She invited over the rest of our little gang: Uncle Carl aka Carlos aka Carly lol aka MsCarlyCalifonia, B, and Brigitte to have an early birthday dinner.
Crystal made Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti. I wish I took a picture of it! I gobbled it down!
She also bought the cutest cake Ive ever seen! It was tiny and the perfect size for us! I loved it!
It was my birthday some where in the world...
I am so lucky to have such great friends. It is hard to find people in your life that will love you unconditionally and its even harder to find other women who will love you like theyre blood.
I love you Crystal, Carly, B, and Brigitte.
Thank you so much for me there for me when I needed you.

Jedi Birthday Party

Saturday, July 9, 2011

Oh my its a Jedi...PARTY!

Jude and I were invited to a Star Wars themed party over the weekend to celebrate my cousin Daniel's birthday. I was really excited because my Aunt Anabel always hosts the best parties! She went all out on everything...I mean EVERY THING. I love when people notice the detail that I put into my work, so I can appreciate the effort she put into this party.

Just in case you were not sure what a Jedi was, there was a sign to fill you in.

Lets begin with the food and treats. There were the most delicious tamales a Mexican could ever wish for, hot dogs, burgers, and nachos. I didn't take pictures of these because I inhaled everything so quickly haha.
I could not wait to show the here it is! She made so many things the morning of the party, so she was no completely happy with the results but I think it looks fantastic. Tall character cakes are a challenge!
R2D2 Birthday Cake
Yoda and Darth Vader cookies were yummy.
Han Solo in Carbonite Jell-O.
Coolest jello yet. Simple but totally relevant to the movie.
I thought it was neat that she labeled everything to go with the movie. Pretzel sticks turned into lightsabers when dipped into blue frosting.
Princess Leia Cupcakes
I made sure to get the skinny on these next two cupcake designs. These are carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, Oreo cookie hair buns, Kiss sprinkles for the lips and black gel for the hair and eyes. Cute!!
Ewok Cupcakes
These were German chocolate cupcakes with German chocolate frosting, Hersey's Kisses for the ears, light brown fondant for the hood, and black gel for the eyebrows eyes and nose.
Costumes are a must! Themed parties would not be complete without costumes, this is Princess Leia aka Autumn. I love this little girl she is such a sweet heart.
Each child got a hooded cape and a lightsaber, they really lit up! Jude played with his until it was time for bed.
Birthday Boy Jedi Daniel battles Darth Vader!
Soon follows Princess Leia...
....then Jedi Jude Isaac!
And the oldest, most dustiest mom hahahah.
The best part of hiring Character Entertainers is that they fill up their 2 hours with fun! These two had a parachute game that the kids jumped for joy over.
Also temporary tattoos...
And balloon swords!
Of course we had to come dressed in Star Wars shirts. I got our tops at OLD NAVY for under $20 each. My shirt was in the boy section, I just cut the neck out and stretched it out to give it a girly twist. I love it!
My tia Anabel, her husband Oscar and their blessed son Daniel.
The best shot I got with all of these excited Jedi kids.
We had such a great time. I wish I could have stayed for the pinata and to make Yoda Soda. If there are any pictures of the Yoda Soda I will make sure to update it. This post I dedicate to my beautiful aunt Anabel. Shes an amazing person, and an even better mother. God bless her! I hope you enjoyed this post, I was so excited to share this with you all!
