We went on a date night with some friends last night and we had the best time! I decided we needed to try something different, you know get out, explore, live a little. So we went indoor rock climbing. There is this great place in Riverside called ThreshHold if you ever get a chance go online and check them out. The owner is a Christian and it had a great family atmosphere. We climbed for over three hours and I have decided that rock climbing is the ULTIMATE full body work out. It works every part of your body and is a great core exercise so my abs are feeling it today. After the rock climbing we went to the Claim Jumper for dinner. YUMMY! Thanks Jeff and Allie for a great date night, next month I'm seeing................................ race car driving!!!!!

Our good friends went away with us to help us celebrate and that made it extra special.
My mom kept the girls and from what I can tell a fun time was had by all. I think the torture to her was kept to a minimum at least from what she is telling me. She did mention to me that she was T-I-R-E-D!! He,heee welcome to my world! :)
When we got home we were greeted by happy, soaking wet kids who were playing outside in the water, a homemade cake and the sidewalk decorated with birthday wishes all the way to the door. So stinkin' cute! Oh and my mom had made us dinner so I could end my weekend on a high note.

" I was on a walk the other day enjoying your creation when it dawned on me that I had been praying all wrong. Instead of give me patience, kindness, guard my anger and tongue, I need to be praying you will just come back today because I am not cut out for teenage daughters. Don't worry you still have time they are only 4 and 8 but the longer you take the more grey hairs they make."

I just wish I could see what she was talking about....................maybe I am blinded by the hormones or the fact that I am going to be 35 or that my husband has always loved running his fingers through my mustache...................I just don't know.
The very worst part? I think my kids might be inheriting my facial hair. What do you think? Do they resemble me?
OK, maybe just a little but they definitely have Dan's eyes! He,heee!!
Hope I made you laugh today. I know I am still laughing! Ha,haaaa! If I had a dollar for every time I have looked close in the mirror in the last 24 hours I would be rich.
My mom asked me if I was going to ever go back? I thought about it and I think going to the other salon where the Caucasian girls lie to me is much more enjoyable. Well, at least until my 40th birthday!! :)

On to my next project of the day. I made these little Easter basket cupcakes for the girls to hand out to the neighborhood kids. The idea is courtesy of www.bakerella.com She has some really fun ideas if you ever get a chance to check her web page out. She takes the cake balls to whole new level.
After I was done with the baking and decorating I wrapped them in these bags with cute spring ribbon. I cut out little cardboard circles and placed them under the cupcakes to give them stability. A few did get smooshed a little in transit but by the looks on the kids face when they received them I don't think they minded.

Then when the cake comes out of the oven you scoop the hot cake into a large mixing bowl. Immediately adding a can of frosting. We stuck with the chocolate theme here. :) After it is all mixed and gooey you cover it and put it in the fridge for a few hours. I prefer to make mine and let it cool over night so it is nice and firm for rolling.
