The Family that Parties Together...

Fun Fact: My brother and sister-in-law have the SAME birthday! 

Kind of awesome right? What is even more awesome is the Joint Birthday Celebration that comes once a year! You can always expect something fabulous planned, and a group of amazing people joined together to celebrate these two...
I think you guys know how blessed I feel to have my family in my life, but I am not sure if you know how grateful I am for Sarah. Growing up I always wanted a sister, but lets face it I secretly liked the attention of being the only girl. But something was always missing, and I didn't even realize it until Sarah came into this crazy little family of ours. She is the sister I always wanted, and I am so lucky my brother got his act together and put a ring on it! I love them both so much, and love how they both have been there for me whenever I needed it. Thanks you two!

Alright. Enough with the sappy, and on with the party! We had dinner at this great restaurant in Newport called Sol. If you live in Orange County, you should definitely check it out (tacos=amazing). There was a big group of us, some from Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, OC, and of course, San Diego (me!). I guess these two are pretty popular.
There was good food, wine, and lots of a laughter. I think it's safe to say that a good time was had by all. But the night wasn't over yet! It was still early, and we wanted to go out on the town!...take the world by storm!...paint the town red!..well you get the point. Sadly Sarah had to go home early to check on Little P, but we got Old Man Shea to come out with us! (Small victory!)

Now I didn't think it was possible to find a dive bar in a Newport, but we managed to find a pretty good one. (with live music..bonus!) We ended up at some Irish pub that I can't remember the name of, but I do remember that Moby was performing. You remember Moby right? That techno dude from the 90's? OR it might have been Moby's Doppleganger. The probability for the second option is a lot higher than the first...but I am still convinced it was in fact 90's Techno Legend Moby. Sadly there is no photographic evidence, so you will just have to take my word or it.

Either way, there was music (and a few beers) in the air! And that is all that really matters right?

The night turned out pretty good if you asked me. It would have been perfect if Sarah would have been there though. Next year we will leave Shea at home, and us girls will go out instead! 

I am so grateful to be close with my brothers, and be able to join them in their celebrations. Seriously though. For years I thought I was the dorky little sister, that wasn't cool enough to hang out with my big brothers. Truth be told, I probably wasn't very cool at that time anyways. But I am glad we have gotten to the point in our lives where we can all go out and have a good time together. I think we are pretty lucky to have each other, if you ask me. Or they are pretty lucky to have me...yeah let's go with that second one...


Oh. And in case you were really curious what I looked liked rocking out to a drum solo on a bar table...
You are welcome.

CUTE pics! I want your hair.
Looks like such a great party, I so miss having a good group of friends. Graduating and leaving Florida has left me so lonely!
