Happy Birthday Dan!

Last night Eye and I went out to celebrate Dan's 40th birthday. First of all it was SO nice to actually get dressed, put on make up and do my hair. Second, it was so nice to actually spend time out of the house with Eye. Since he's been on the road my Friday night usually consists of going to Target, Trader Joe's or something real exciting like spending way to much time on Facebook. Dan's small gatherings are usually a star studded event and I usually don't get star strucked because I grew up in L.A. and I am used to seeing celebrities. I don't know if it's because I live in Vegas and I pretty much DON'T go out but last night I TOTALLY got star strucked with Rikki Lake. I mean her movie, "Business of Being Born" inspired me to try a home birth. So I tell Dan, "DUDE you HAVE to reintroduce me to Rikki." I am like freaking out. THEN it happens I sit across from her at dinner and SHE starts a conversation with ME and says, "Coralissa, (didn't even know she knew my name) Dan's been showing me pictures of your baby he's so cute." OMG (Dan your awesome) I am totally floored! I ended up thanking her for her work on educating women on different birthing choices and how her website My Best Birth totally helped me through pregnancy and my C-section. Rikki was so welcoming, nurturing and so so nice when I talked about my birth story. THEN we ended up talking about Barre and she told me she was totally addicted and takes it in L.A.! She was definitely the highlight of my night. Happy Birthday Dan. Thanks for being born yesterday so I can have a night out with my husband and meet one of my idols.

If you haven't seen Dan's show then you might night understand this birthday video I made him. I promise you I won't encourage my son to curse.
