Being silly with my bouncy hair.

After getting ready, Kendra and I ate a piece of pizza and some yummy breadsticks before heading into Hollywood!
I had already met up with Aileen who was co-hosting her birthday with me to give her the birthday cake we prepared as a surprise since she would get there first.
Once we go there, lots of friends started to arrive and the fun began! We had a really great turn out and it was so lovely getting to see so many people I don't see as often as I might like, and lots of pictures were taken, as always! :)

Trying to get all three of us in one shot...I'm practicing my skills! LOL!

We aren't sure why we look scared carrying the cake, but it cracks me up!

Surprising her with the cake and singing!

Off to cut into the cake and all its yumminess!

Her plates...I thought they were so her!

By the end of the night, the cake was yummy!!!

We had a really fun time, it was a great turn out and I was happy that the birthday girl was enjoying herself and had a really Happy 30th Birthday...that's what it's all about! :)
I hope you all enjoyed my little picture show and Hollywood Night Out Look of the Day...or night was fabulous getting to dress up with a little sparkle!
