My Tangled Birthday Party

So.... remember when I saw Tangled and was really obsessed with it?

Still am.

For my birthday party this year, I got this crazy idea to have an outdoor showing of Tangled, and somehow Levi was able to actually pull it off! One of our friends had a projector he let us borrow, and our friends with the most incredible backyard in the world had everything else we needed.... including the perfect place to watch the movie.

So on saturday night, we headed up to topanga canyon for my Tangled birthday party. I should be more embarrassed than I am to admit that I had a Tangled birthday party.

I wanted a really small gathering this year, so I didn't really invite anyone. It was just me, Levi, my mom, my sister, and a few of our friends - Will, Drew, and Ed. I love those boys.

(That's part of the backyard... Will and Drew actually call it the garden though because Drew is from england... and it's too massive and incredible to be called a backyard. You can see more photos in the garden here.)


(Our dinner complete with virgin mojitos... my latest favorite thing.)

(This was our little outdoor movie theatre.)

(That's me pretending to have long hair...)

(Hammin it up just like I've been doing since birth. I thought it was hilarious and sweet that Will and Drew got that little Rapunzel happy birthday banner for me.)

(Coolest birthday present ever. One of Will and Drew's friends was in the movie so he gave them this souvenir coin from the Hollywood premiere! And they gave it to me! I think it's really cool.)

Watching the movie:



The night was sprinkled with anxiety because we got the call that my brother and sister-in-law were going to the hospital while we were on the way. As soon as we heard that they had finally been admitted to the hospital, we packed up and left... so the movie was cut short (even though we could have stayed because the baby didn't come til 5:30 in the morning...). It was still a really fun night though, and it was so sweet that everyone went to so much trouble so that I could watch Tangled outside for my birthday. :)

I have really great people in my life.
