30th Birthday Bash

Yep, I’m 30.

I never had a Quincenera so I decided I wanted a Treintanera. (30th birthday bash) My sister organized an awesome party in her backyard. We had beautiful decorations, a band, delicious food, an amazing cake, it was awesome! In April I tweeted that I was looking for a band to play at my party and I got so many responses from my fans of really cool bands in the Bay area. I looked up a bunch of band websites and we ended up going with “So Timeless.” They were awesome! Everyone was blown away and wanted them to play longer. ‘So Timeless’ are young, hip and fun. They played songs that reached all generations from my Dad to my little cousins, and we all had a great time. My cousin Memo has his own catering company based out of Sacramento, Garcia’s California Grilling, and I was so lucky to have his company drive down to San Jose and cater my party. They made ribs, chicken, potato salad, grown up Mac’n Cheese and little kid Mac’nCheese (there is a difference.) It was seriously so delicious I couldn’t stop eating. Misti Short Cakes provided the beautiful birthday cake. Not only was it gorgeous but it was so good. I don’t know if you like fondant but I looooove fondant and she just gets it right. The cake flavors were chocolate with chocolate chips and chocolate mouse, marble, and lemon cake on top. I’m not gonna lie, I had a piece of all 3. It was my birthday, don’t judge me. My Uncle Eddie who did my flowers for my wedding made me a beautiful birthday arrangement. Thanks Uncle Eddie! It was great to have family and friends there to celebrate with me. I can’t believe i’m actually this old. I feel like i’m still 25 so I guess that’s all that matters! As long as i’m healthy, happy and still pursuing all that God has for me I think i’ll be ok no matter what age I reach. I am so grateful for all that I have accomplished in these 30 years and I look forward to what the next 30 will bring. I have been so blessed and I fully believe the the best is yet to come. I thank God for the calling on my life and I just pray that he continues to give me the grace and all that I may need to walk it out. Here is a quick video of my Birthday party that my brother @SonnyCas made for me. enjoy!

    One of the first clips I saw of you was when you were describing how your parents reacted to you being an extra on television. I was trying to send the link to my friend,but now I can’t find it. What is that clip/act called, and where can I find it?

    I just wanted to send you a little note to say that I admire you and your husband. I have been a fan of yours and a fan of Group 1 Crew for years and just realized that you are married to Manwell. I think the two of you are amazing. I just watched your video “Ransom Note” and it ministered to me. Thank you for sharing your testimony and keep doin whatchu do! 😉

    Anjelah you are such a blessing! My daughter Lily (14) and I love watching your acts. Finally, as Christians we can enjoy a true comedian. You are hilarious.. my daughter loves imitating you and she makes me laugh so hard.
    When she sees me down for whatever reason she just does the Bon Qui Qui at King Burger act and puts a Big Smile on my face.
    I want to surprise her one day and take her to meet you.
    We reside in Whittier, CA..I guess I’ll keep an eye out for when you’re in LA.
    Love ya God bless you and your family… 😀
    Keep smilin’
