I mentioned in my monthly recap post the other day that the last couple of months have been pretty busy for me and my family and I wasn’t lying. Starting in March, when I flew up to Utah to spend the week with Caiden at home so that he could spend his birthday with his parents, it’s been one thing after another for my family and we haven’t really slowed down. We have one more high school graduation in our family and then summer can begin.
So that you can get a better picture of all of the fun things I did over the last couple of months (since my blogging in May was freaking miserable and non-existent), this post will be mostly pictures from all of the fun times. Check it out!
Chance Graduates from BYU
The Wilson’s drove from California to Utah to celebrate Chance’s graduation from BYU and who knew that his boring ass graduation would make headlines! One of the speakers in the graduation came out as a proud gay man in the Church. More power to you, homie and that same guy was featured on Snapchat, appeared on the Ellen show and I was there guys! I was there and listened to his speech and was confused af when he announced that he was gay…at first, I didn’t get it but then my sister and I were like, “Did he just come out for the first time ever?” I guess he did.
Here are pics from that weekend. We made hella candy lei’s for this graduation for Chance and all of his friends. I’m so freaking over making lei’s.
Our Graduate, Chance
Our family stays turning up in our pictures, haha
The Wilson Siblings with Chance
This was such a fun trip, we celebrated Chance’s accomplishments at some Brazilian restaurant in Salt Lake City before Chance boarded his flight to Samoa for an internship that he got last minute. He had a blast in Samoa and I’m glad for him.
Caiden’s 2nd Birthday Party
Caiden turned 2 in March but because California was coming out for Chance’s graduation at the end of April, Caiden’s Mom decided to hold the party until we were all in town so that we didn’t have to make too many trips or miss a celebration for our baby. The party was a lot of fun and honestly, my favorite thing about the entire party was our dessert table. It was a thing of beauty you guys. Here are some pics from that day.
Dude, check out my hard work on this dessert table. I worked my ass off on this table, with the help of my assistants who were too scared to not do a good job, haha. I’m so happy with the way that it turned out. The entire party was freaking off the chains fun and we got lots of compliments on everything so I was really happy that I could help Chloe and Markus put together a bomb ass party for our little Caiden. He had the best time too, he had so much fun that he knocked out at 5 pm and didn’t wake up until the next morning. Ha!
Chach Gets Engaged!
Lots of things happened on our family trip to Utah. We celebrated Chance’s college graduation, Caiden’s birthday and then Chach, who just got back from her mission in Brazil last year, got engaged to her boyfriend Thomas…at Caiden’s party. It was awesome and I’m glad that our family was able to be a part of his proposal. So cute!
Bren and Ken’s Basketball Banquet
Brenna and Kenna are officially done with basketball and we were able to celebrate their last season with their team at the end of April with some bomb af pizza and salad. Fun times!
Meghan Graduates from Vanguard University
My Meg graduated from Vanguard University to kick off the month of May. She graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and she hopes to work as a physical therapist to help kids with injuries. She has a lot of experience with being a kid with injuries and she wanted to understand what happened to her (two torn ACL’s, multiple cases of plantar fasciitis, some meniscus tears, etc…) and how to help others like her. I’m super proud of her and had a lot of fun at her party, even though my cousin’s son kept turning on the emergency alarm, hahahaha. Oh, good times!

Family Turn Up
The Girls head to Bakersfield for 18Hundred
My friend Foti has been hard at work trying to get his restaurant up and running. It’s been a long journey with lots of steps forward before taking some steps backward and after years of trying to get it up and running, his new restaurant is open for business and you guys, it’s such a great restaurant.
The day after Meghan’s graduation, my sister Ingrid and I drove two hours to Bakersfield with Bren, Ken, Meg and my best friend Theresa to support Foti and his wife Maya in their new business venture and it was sooo worth the drive and the wait. They’re doing such big things in Bakersfield and I couldn’t be happier for him. Here are some pictures from our trip.
Me, Foti, and Theresa…both of these guys were at my first birthday party. That’s how long we’ve been friends.
You guys, the unicorn milkshake was my favorite thing that I had that day at Foti’s restaurant 18hundred. So freaking good!
Team Wilson Gang Sibling Dinner
Back in February, my siblings decided to get together once a month, just us siblings for dinner to catch up and keep up with each other’s lives. It’s hard when two of your siblings live in different states but everyone came down for Meghan’s graduation so it was the first time in many, many years that we were all in the same place, at the same time. Of course, we planned a sibling dinner and even though my brother Henry fell asleep before dinner and didn’t hear any of the alarms he set and missed sibling dinner altogether, we still had a fabulous time.
Chach Turns 22

The Wilson’s Take on Dodger Stadium
The Dodger’s Cutest Fan EVER!
L.A.’s MVP, Cody Bellinger
What an amazing game! We got a group together to spend Memorial Day at Dodger Stadium and the Dodgers really made sure that the fans were happy that day. A three-run home run from Kike, another home run from Chris Taylor and a whole lot of Cody Bellinger amazingness on both ends of the game (his 19th home run of the season and two defensive assists that we saw in real time was just flat out amazing) and we left that day, the happiest Dodger fans! We sat near the foul pole in right field where Cody Bellinger plays (he’s my favorite player on the team so of course, I got tickets on his side of the field) so we were up close and personal with him when he threw out those Mets players at home and at third. My nephew Luke is a huge Cody Bellinger fan now and had the best time ever. So much fun!
There are some other stuff that I did but this post is long enough so these are the highlights. I told you guys that I’ve been a busy bitch these last couple of months.
