When the clock struck midnight on Friday morning this is what we were doing. Chit-chatting away and so we snapped this photo to commemorate the occasion. Thanks Lesley for the girls night, and hubby for staying up with us and snapping the photo!

Last week kicked off my birthday fun with some sweet friends and my thoughtful husband! I got to enjoy a Fresno High baseball game with the Papi's. On Sunday we met the Papi's to see the movie Bridesmaids, which was a little raunchy but also laugh out loud funny through the entire movie! We also enjoyed dinner with them at BJ's and of course had a birthday Pazookie. On Thursday night the girls took me out to Five and spoiled me! Thank you Sophie, Christina, and Annie! You girls were so thoughtful and made me feel so special. I am grateful to have each of you in my life to share, laugh, and love with. This week my husband spoiled me with a few treats and lots of shopping and errand running. Thank you Aaron for all your surprises, and sacrificing a lot of time and effort to make my "birthday season" special!

Aaron surprised me on Monday by driving me to Visalia to visit this place....followed by Pier One and Home Goods. I was in heaven! Mr. Waldrum you amaze me everyday!
I enjoyed a Teazers Tea in between errand running for my party
The night before my birthday my dear friend Lesley took me out to dinner and we enjoyed some birthday margaritas. Thank you Lesley, love our girl talks!
And the fun continues tonight because it's my 25TH BIRTHDAY and we are partying by eating lots of pizza and going ROLLERSKATING! That's right a bunch of adults are hitting the rink. I'm so excited. Off to get ready.....

Since I can't sleep I'm resorting to late night blogging...Tonight Aaron and I went to the first Woodward Park $5 concert featuring Steel Magnolia. We enjoyed some good old fashion country music and the crisp evening. There were a few good opening acts followed by the cute duet who put on a fun little show. If you haven't heard their music I suggest you check them out, they might be the next big thing! Before the performers began this is how we entertained ourselves with a little of this...
and he's going to kill me...but this too
We got a little silly but truly enjoyed each other's company! Here's to more summer nights of music, concerts, and laughter!

Our Easter was so enjoyable! We are so grateful for our family and friends and the joy they bring to us! We started the day by visiting the Continos and taking the kids their Easter baskets. Followed by my in-laws house to celebrate with the Waldrums. Then ended our day at my grandparents house with my side of the family. We ate lots of delicious meals and of course tons of desserts. This was my first year not hunting for eggs with my cousins, which was tough letting go but I guess it's time to join the "grown-ups."

Two Easter bunnies came to our house in the morning!

Rodeo weekend was full of fun festivities. It began by celebrating Carlo's 2nd birthday on Friday night. Then went to the rodeo parade on Saturday morning with the Continos and the Richardsons. Followed by the actual rodeo that afternoon for all the events. We had so much fun enjoying friends, family, great food, and exciting entertainment. We love spending time with this crew. Thank you Continos for inviting us!
