Another MVHS graduate!

Three Gorria's graduate from MVHS, three to go! This past weekend my beautiful little sister became a high school grad. No one is more proud of her than I am! She is such a shining star and touches everyone she meets with her warm and loving heart. Brandon and I were lucky enough to see her walk proud through the staduim to receive her diploma. To be all together with the family celebrating Liana's enormous acheivement meant the world to me. It was a great graduation ceremony, with a picture perfect moment of those little black caps that mean so much soaring through the air, unitl one of them comes down to target Liana and blindside her with a jab to the eye. Poor thing had a swollen right eye for most of the evening and a black eye for the days to follow. It is safe to say it is a moment in her life that she will never forget; neither will we. ;)

A Reminder

Last night I got a great reminder of the great birthday present
my wonderful husband
got me this year. He took me to the Dirty Dancing play at the Pantages theater! Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite movies and seeing the play was amazing! It was better than I ever expected! I got the reminder of this wonderful night out when I was watching the last scene of the movie last night with my sisters, my brother, and my mom. I didn't allow anyone to talk for 8 minutes until the last scene was over.

My Birthday

Every year I have to be creative and try to plan my birthday around Memorial Day weekend. Well, this year it was impossible to plan around it because my birthday landed right on Memorial Day. Thank you to my wonderful family who threw me a great birthday bbq, filled with fun, laughter, Maragaritas, and badminton. My grandpa even stopped by! I could not have asked for a more relaxing day! Thank you to my fabulous friends who took time out of their busy schedules to come and celebrate my birthday. A shout out to Lisa, Darla, and Brittany ~ You girls mean the world to me and I don't know what I would do without you! Thank you to my amazing husband for being the wonderful man in my life, I love you.

The End of May

May started off just like any other month; filled with work and relaxing weekends. After a great Mother's Day and Liana's birthday we were really looking forward to the end of May. Our fun activities started on the Saturday before Memorial Day. We went to dinner with our favorite couple, Lissy and Ernie, at Downtown Disney. We ate at the Jazz Kitchen then had dessert at Rainforest Cafe. We talked and laughed for hours. We love hanging out with them and can't wait until they have their baby, only 5 more months until he or she is born!
