I just read my own blog...

Because I couldn't remember what the last thing I posted about was. Haha. I feel like I used to blog a lot more frequently, and I used to be real good at taking pictures for the blog, and posting them ON the blog. I just get more and more lazy as time goes on. Oh well. Since it's mostly for my remembrance, I guess it doesn't matter if I post too many pics. Anywho, the real reason I'm here today is to post a quickie about our life lately.

On the 6th I went down to Vegas with my friend Kelly to see a concert. Her husband surprised her with a ticket to see the Backstreet Boys and since HE didn't want to go with her, he splurged and bought me one too. We stayed in St. George at my cousins house Friday night, left early Saturday to get checked into the hotel and get ready. We lived off of Jack in the Box tacos and fruit leather I had brought. It was pretty epic. The concert started at 8 o'clock, and our seats were actually pretty decent. Much better than I thought, and even zoomed in on my camera didn't look as close as we actually were. Brian Littrell's son got on stage first, (he's like 10) and sang a few songs to get the crowd started and it was super awesome. Next was DJ Pauly D, and frankly, his performance would've made more sense if we were in a dance club, but whatever. Then came Jesse McCartney, and I didn't think I would know any of his songs... then he started singing and I knew most of them :). FINALLY at about 11 the Boys came on stage. Needless to say, it was amazing and my life is now complete. Best concert of my life.

This last weekend was pretty great too. We got to have dinner with some awesome friends Friday night, and we always have interesting discussions with them which is fun. Saturday Matt made homemade pizza from scratch, we fed our besties, and finally got all caught up on Dexter! I can't believe there's only 2 episodes left (1 more to air)! Matt and I have been watching since the beginning and I'll be sad when it's over.

 All in all, these last few weeks have been fun, even if they haven't been JAM-PACKED. I appreciate all our friends, and family who make our lives so much fun. I thank Heavenly Father for all of you, every day. Everyone in my life is amazing. You all know who you are. Thanks for being there. :)

Another year older... but maybe not much wiser. ;)

The day has come and passed. What day you ask? The day that commemorates the amazing day 27 years ago (I know! 27 years!) where my mom, and my dad went to the hospital, had an emergency c-section, and then left a few days later with a blond, giant headed, bouncing baby girl, namely... Me. On Wednesday (my actual birthday) Matt made me breakfast before we both had to leave for work. My SIL took me to lunch at Cafe Rio, and my bosses let me off early. I got a letter from my favorite missionary, Hermana Howell. :) When Matt got home he cooked us steak and then he watched "The Lucky One" with me. I happen to think that Zac Efron is pretty dang attractive, so kudos to my amazing husband that I wouldn't trade for anything, for putting up with during the movie. Haha. The rest of the week was rather uneventful, but Saturday we got to celebrate my birthday with my family and friends at Pineview Resevoir. We got up there early, got a spot in the shade, relaxed, swam, had hotdogs and cookies and had a great day. Later that day my sister Hayley and her fiance Travis came by and brought me a gift, ate dinner with us and then finished the night watching Pitch Perfect with us. It was a pretty great birthday, even if I am getting older... Thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday, and thanks to those who celebrated with us. You all made me, one happy, and lucky gal. :)
