Celebrating James

I love when the holidays kick into full gear. We start with Halloween, then Penelope's birthday in November, the Christmas festivities and then in January we get to celebrate James! Yay! James is one of the most giving, selfless people I know. This applies to so many things: his time, money, energy and sometimes even "giving in" when he doesn't have too- (like those notorious arguments we can all get into ladies!) LOL His priority is his family, so much so that I never want him to feel overlooked. So for his birthday I planned a weekend in LA for us. His mom watched the baby and I surprised him with a night in a beautiful suite at the London in West Hollywood. Our friends Tony and Cynthia joined us for dinner at the Gordon Ramsay restaurant (James loves Gordon Ramsay) and our friends Tony and Yvonne hung out with us the next day at the pool. Of course his birthday didn't stop there. My parents celebrated him the week before with dinner at their house, and tonight some family and friends met up at Arnoldi's for Italian food and bocci ball. I love you baby bear. You are the light of my life. I don't know what I would do without you. Thank you for being so caring, loving, fun, and for just being YOU!
Happy Birthday, I love you!

Ok I guess I can't talk at some point they convinced me to get on too!

right after we checked in on Saturday.
I loved the rooftop pool because the views of LA were amazing,
we were literally laying there staying at the LA skyline
