HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my One and Only, ARIC!

My husband, best friend, and sweetheart, I want to wish you a very happy birthday!
What can I say that I haven't already said?....you're getting old! HAHAHAHAHA
I love you very much!

In celebration of Aric's 31st birthday, a group of 20+ friends gathered for dinner at BJ's. I booked reservations on a monday night to avoid a long wait and crowds. Surprisingly, the place was still packed....even for a monday night! We dined on buffalo wings, bruschetta, spinach-artichoke dip, and deep dish pizzas. For dessert, we had Aric's favorite - carrot cake. =)

Afterwards, a bunch of friends came over to hang out at the house. Thanks to all those who made it out. You failed to get Aric stinkin' drunk, but he had a really great time regardless! And for all our friends who took turns playing with Ashlyn all night long, she slept...well...like a baby! THANKS!
