:Going Private???::

So, I log onto my blog this morning and notice I have a few more followers than normal. Some of whom don't have a profile for me to figure out who they are. Not good. I am thinking about going private now. Even though we don't have anything going on in our lives and I don't put private/personal things on our blog it still kinda gave me the creeps. What are your thoughts on this? (to the 1 maybe 2 people, if that, that read this blog!)

::Super Cute::

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”

Thank you Jeremy for being this guy for me!

::Busy, Busy, Busy::

I can't believe how busy we've been this past weekend. First off can I say how thankful I am to have such great family and friends! Thanskgiving day was fabulous! I very much enjoy my mother in laws cooking she makes by far the best thabksgiving dinner I've ever had! It was sad to not have jeremy's brother and sister and there families there but that just meant more of the delicious food for me!

After the in-laws we headed to my aunts to hang with my fam for a while before heading off to the Jazz game which was great by the way! Josh and Danielle were here for the weekend and thursday night started a record breaking weekend of no sleep which for those that know me well know that no sleep for me is a bad thing but I must say I did pretty well! After the jazz game we started the count down to Jeremys birthday! We headed to Cheers to You and hung out until the clock struck 12 at which point Danielle and I sang happy birthday really loud!
Well, black friday is my favorite holiday so I convinced jeremy to come out with me which was awesome! Instead of going to bed for an hour we headed straight to old navy and waited till 3 am to get some new clothes for B cuz he's decided to start growing like a weed all the sudden! After old navy we did walmart and smiths and were home in bed by 7 which was awesome! I got some rest and then off to wendover for some fabulous Dwight!
Saturday was just as busy! We got tickets to the BYU v. Utah game and had a great time until the great Max Hall decided to sully the win and his team by saying us Ute fans are classless and he hates us! I must say the BYU fans we sat by were no angels to us but we took it and rolled with it and didn't ruin it for all othe ute fans but oh well!
Finally sunday was our day of rest and it was fabulous! I got the laundry done, the house cleaned, and started with the christmas decorations which I hope to get finished by this weekend!
Just writing this post made me tired all over again but I sure did enjoy the weekend!

::Dirty 30::

Yes you read that right! My husband turned 30 on November 27th! I can't believe that we started dating when he was just the ripe ol' age of 23, man how time flies when you're having fun! I just want to wish him a happy (belated) birthday on the blog! We celebrated out in Wendover with Dwight Yokam and it was so much fun I loved it and thought I would hate it!

::Working hard or Hardly working?::

Well, I have been working as a full time speech language therapist for about a month now and I love every minute of it. I am so glad that I was able to leave SelectHealth and start my new career. It is so nice to know that what I went to school for is actually what I really want to do. (breathing a sigh of relief now!)

I am loving working with the elementary kiddo's, they have such an energy about them and you can tell that they really want to be here and they really want to learn which is so great. They love coming to see me and they love working hard and showing me what they can do which is so great!

I spend about 90% of my time solely with elementary aged children and the other 10% is spent with JR High kids which is rough. The dynamic of JR High is so much different than elementary school. The JR High kids don't really want to come see me and once the do show up (if they show up) they just want to get out of my office as quickly as possible which I find weird because I am awesome! Oh well I guess that is where I will strive to be that much better as a therapist!

Between my 3 jobs and my family I have been so busy and a lot of the time feel so stressed out but I feel that it is a good stress and not a bad stress if that makes any sense! I will be starting a class next week to help me take my GRE test to get into graduate school and then the long hard process of applying to graduate school starts which I am not looking forward to but oh well I gotta do it. I just hope that it works out for me this year and I actually get in!

::Josh and Danielle October 17, 2009::

The day has finally arrived. After announcing their engagement more than 1 year ago Josh and Danielle finally tied the knot! Jeremy and I left for St. Louis, MO on Thursday October 15 so we could be there to celebrate their special day!

This trip did not start out great for me! I had to wake up at 4 am to catch my 7 am flight. Most of you know I am not a morning person by any means so this did not make me happy! Well we made our flight and found out that our straight thru flight was now changed and going to be making a lay over in Atlanta for an hour. AAAHHHHH I hate lay overs especially when I have to fly over my destination to make it there! Well we were delayed in SLC for 45 min b/c of some "technical difficulties" a excuse me what does this mean? Any who ... We made it to Atlanta with time to eat lunch only to find out our flight there was delayed an hour and a half .... AAAAHHHHHHH seriously ... I have now been up since 4 am UT time and find out my flight was supposed to land in St. Louis by 2:40 pm (just enough time to take a nap before the Bachelorette/Bachelor parties) and we now are not landing until 4ish. This super sucks b/c Jeremy still has to head to Men's Warehouse to get his tux! Well we finally made it to our hotel at 6 pm Thursday night and had just enough time to shower and get ready before the festivities! I have to say I was a trooper, I didn't complain once I just ate some much needed dinner and then went out with the girls (many of whom I didn't know mind you). I finally had Josh's aunt take me to my hotel around midnight b/c I needed some sleep!

Friday started off slow. The boys went out to celebrate with Josh and Jeremy didn't stroll into our room until 5 am .. WTF???? So he slept until about noon and by this point we had just enough time to get ready and get a quick lunch before driving to Danielle's parents house in Illinois for the rehearsal dinner. This was a fun night. Great food and we got to meet all of Josh's St. Louis friends and Danielle's family and friends!

Saturday we hit up the Budweiser brewery. We never miss this stop when we are in St. Louis b/c they give out free beer at the end! We had a great time with just us SLC friends and Josh it was a nice day right before the big "I DO". We then travelled back to Illinois to Hidden Lake Winery where Josh and Danielle exchanged their vows and had a HUGE celebration! It was such a fun night and I loved every minute of it!

Sunday we just relaxed and slept and got on our flight to come home. It was a fast and busy weekend but we are so glad we could be there to celebrate with the happy couple!

Congrats Danni and Josh we love you. Hope you're having fun in Mexico I am very jealous!

::Gotta Love the Beach::

So for the past couple of years my mom, her 6 sisters, and my grandparents have travelled to Florida once and California twice for a much needed girls trip. They rent a beach house and stay literally right on the beach and do nothing all day long. This year they finally allowed us girl nieces to come along with them! What great fun we had! We went to Newport Beach the second weekend in October and it was so great. I didn't get out of my comfie clothes the whole weekend! 

The sisters and grandparents all went for a full week and the nieces started showing up around Thursday to help finish off the week with a bang and boy did we! My sister and I got in Thursday night around 10ish and we stayed up with my other cousins until like 1 am just talking, laughing, and having some much needed cousin fun! This is how relaxing the vacation was I have no idea what we did on Friday afternoon! I do know we went boogie boarding and had a great time. Saturday we rented beach cruisers and cruised along the board walk and onto the ferry to Balboa island! Sunday we woke up and drove to San Diego ate some great mexican food and got on our flight home! It wasn't a long vaca, but it was long enough to spend some great time laughing and loving my family! I will get pictures loaded on the computer and posted at some point in time!

::A Sad/Happy day in my Little World::

Well today is offically one of the saddest/happiest days for me! How can this be you ask, well let me tell you! I have been offered a position working full time as a Speech Language Technician (which is what I have been going to school for for the past 2 years) so that effectively ends my employment with SelectHealth. I am so excited to be starting this new career phase in my life it is just bittersweet to be leaving a wonderful place to work with wonderful fabulous people. I honestly can say I love everyone that I work with and it is hard to imagine not seeing them daily.

This new adventure will hopefully help me get into graduate school next year so that I can go further with this career. I can't wait to get started and meet all the wonderful little children that I will be working with, and it is nice to know that the U didn't take almost $10 grand just for the heck of it!!!

::11 years in the waiting and totally worth it::

My husband is a HUGE Pearl Jam fan and that might be an understatement! He has literally been waiting 11 years for them to return toUtah and they arrived on September 28, 2009. I was never really a huge PJ fan, I had my fav's but other than those 2 songs (one of which is Jeremy!) I couldn't even tell you when their songs came on the radio. I LOVED their show, it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. There was no wasted time chatting and laughing they came out and sang and sang and sang for 2 straight hours, they did 2 encores and then let some guy up on stage to propose to his girl friend. Who else would do that? I am so glad Jeremy got us tickets to this show and I hope they don't wait another 11 years to come back here!

Tuesday, September 8, 2009


So I am not the best blogger of all time! Pretty much summer is now over and I haven't blogged about it once! This would lead a reader to believe that we have been doing some crazy fun things but alas we have not. We have pretty much done nothing except work all summer long but I will still give you a small re-cap to our days! Just to warn you this post will be long and boring. I have no pictures on my work computer and we haven't done anything at all!

With June being the rainiest month ever I feel that we got ripped on some of our Utah summer so we tried to make the most of things in July. We hung out at my parents every free weekend we had to go swimming and soak up some rays. We ventured to Yuba with the fam over the 24th of July weekend and that was really fun to just camp, boat, and hang with our fam on the beach!

August was the same as July! Hanging at the parents pool and soaking up the sun pretty much sums it up. We wanted to get out more this summer and go camping but once we saw how much crap it takes just to camp for even and over nighter we decided swimming at the parents it much much better and much easier!

I started working for Granite school district on August 24th as a speech assistant and I am loving every minute of it. It is so fun to be able to work with the children and learn from a Master's level SLP and to also know that what I have been going to school for is actually something I love to do (that is a plus considering with my first degree I haven't done anything in that field b/c I hated it so bad!). I also started working back at Electric Beach tanning salon part time nights and weekends and man was that ever a challange. I have worked there off and on since I was 16 and going back after a year was surreal! I love it and I love that it is such a chill job and I can just hang out and read, now I am not much of a reader at all and so far I have read like 4-5 books since August 1 which is a big accomplishment for me considering that I haven't read anything except school books for the past 8 years!

Jeremy graduated with his BS in Economics and is now on the hunt for a job so if you know of anywhere hiring let us know PLEASE, we need to get him out of Discover card ASAP! That place is literally sucking the life out of him and we need to get it back!

Bryson has been the busiest of us all. With finishing 1st grade and baseball and starting new adventures. He has started flag football and so far has had 2 practices and 2 games and seems to be loving it. This year he must have gotten the sports gene during his growth spurt because he is working so hard and loving every minute of it. This is a huge accomplishment for us considering when he was about 3-4 years old we put him in soccer and he would have nothing to do with it. Finally his mom grabbed his hand and ran around the field with him so that we could say that he actually participated in the sport and we didn't just waste our money! I really give baseball and his awesome coach last year the credit to his new found love of sports. He spent so much time with Bryson and helped him understand all the rules and really work on his coordination and his ability to be a better athlete and it definatly worked to his advantage! Bryson also started SECOND grade this year! Wow that is so crazy. Of course his dad took him on the first day and forgot the camera so we have ZERO pictures of second grade. Oh well I guess! He has already had his first off track time and is actually starting back today for 9 full weeks which will be a shocker at first considering he started school and went for 3 weeks and then went off track. He is loving second grade and getting so good at his reading skills. He is one of the highest in his class and he is now reading chapter books which he thinks is so cool! He also has a NEW girlfriend. Yes that is right he had Brinley and then Anna and now he has McKenna! She is super cute and we love her to death. She is a friends daughter so we get to invite her over for swim dates and BBQ's and they love it. Although it does take them about an hour to talk and get warmed up with each other once they do they have a great time. Bryson has even written on his DS "I love McKenna" so that when he turns it on that is what pops up for him to read! Oh to be young and in love again!

We are now into September and this month is even flying by. I can't believe we have already had the first Utah game of the season and Labor day! WOW! Our Labor day was uneventful but fun. We had some friends over to my parents for BBQ and swim time and the kids loved it. We then decided to get some Cafe Rio (MMMMMMM) and watch the BYU v. Oklahoma game. As avid Ute fans we were of course hoping the Oklahoma would win but with 3 minutes left in the game they left a BYU player wide open for a touch down and a win of 14 BYU to 13 Oklahoma. Oh well I guess that will make the match up with Utah v. BYU that much better!

I have 2 trips planned in October and I am counting down the days! First I am going with my mom, her sisters, and all my girl cousins to a beach house in Newport Beach! My mom and aunts and grandma are all going for the whole week and all the girl cousins are flying in on Thursday to spend the rest of the weekend with them! It will be a blast and I hope this continues as a great tradition for the girls.

Later in October Jeremy and I are flying to St. Louis for Josh and Danni's wedding! We can't wait for them to finally tie the knot and we are so happy that we get to celebrate with them, and a bonus we get a mini vaca to St. Louis!!!

That is pretty much everything we have done this summer and small snipet of things we have coming up! I will try to be better at blogging and if I can remember I will upload some of our pics to this post so I can prove that we really have been doing something!

::Go Utes 15-0::

Well, it is official! Football season is upon us and I can honestly say I am very excited for Utah football. Last night's game against USU was awesome. We don't have season tickets and it was kind of sad and depressing watching the game at home but I guess this is something that we will have to get used to for this season!

::Happy Birthday to Chull::

Well today my little sister turns 22! I can't beleive she is 22 years old. Very weird for me. I still look at her and think she is 4 years old and I need to take care of her and protect her but now she is all grown up and has Ty to protect her! Happy birthday sister. We love you tons!

::RIP to the King of Pop::

Today is a really really sad day in my world. Jeremy will totally make fun of me for even blogging about this but it is very significant in my world. I LOVE the King of Pop. Anyone who can move like he does and have THE best songs ever deserves my love and I will miss him greatly. Now don't get me wrong he is a weirdo and a creepo but his music is still great. It's just hard to believe that 2 very short weeks ago my father was in Cardiac Arrest and I found out today poor Michael has passed and left his 3 children.

I also need to give a shout out to Farrah Facet for sharing her date of death with Michael but I didn't have a connection with Farrah like I did with Michael.

::Only in Utah::

Only in Utah can you be celebrating Father's Day on June 21st (which happens to be the first day of Summer) and have hail. Yes that is right it hailed on Father's day and we had to stop our BBQ/Swim party for about 15 minutes. Here area couple of pictures, they are not very good but in the first picture you can see the little white spots are the hail, in the second picture I tried to capture the hail ripples in the pool!

::End of Baseball::

Well, the sad day has come and baseball is officially over! We are not sure what we are going to do now for the rest of the summer but we had a great time going to the games while they lasted!
Here he is with his certificate and his $50 Visa gift card!

West Jordan had a hit-a-thon during the season and asked the players to raise money for up keep on the field, to pay the umpires, to get new score boards, etc, etc, etc. Well Bryson collected $350 bucks and won a $50 Visa gift card because he was second place in the PeeWee league! Then they announced that they had every PeeWee coach nominate a player on their team that they felt exhibited great sportsmanship and guess what ... Yep Bryson won that too! He got a big trophy and a certificate, he thought he was the coolest kid ever because only 3 PeeWee players won this award! (sorry I don't have a great picture of him with his prizes.)

Here he is running back to his team after getting his trophy! He was stoked.

We are so proud of Bryson and can't believe how much he has grown in this sport this past year. Thanks to his wonderful coach Bryson has gotten more confidence in learning this sport and wanting to play this sport more and more. We can't wait until next year and he gets to be on the same team so that will be great!

Here is a not so great picture of his team! GO MARINERS!!!!

::Happy Father's Day::

Jeremy is the best father and husband ever! I am so lucky to spend my life with this man and I couldn't ask for anyone better! He is the best father ever and Bryson means the world to him. He would do anything for him (and pretty much does) and I love that about him! I can't wait till we have kiddies of our own so that I can see him as a daddy to more children!
Then there is the this man... what can I say about this man! He is my hero, my savior, my everything. I could not imagine my life with out him. With the scare he gave us a couple weeks ago this Father's day really changed things and I was so grateful to have him here with us and hope he is here with us for many many more Father's days!Then there are these three fabulous men (sorry I know it's not the greatest of pictures but it was all I had!) I love my in-laws more than anything and I am so grateful that they accepted me into their lives especially knowing they never thought Jeremy would get married! I have the greatest father-in-law ever. I love chatting with him and hanging with him and I know he would do anything for Jeremy and I (and any of his kids really!) Then there is Kirk (the one on the left) he is the father of 4 and is the best dad to them. I can see how much his kids love and respect him and they are growing up to be the greatest kiddies ever. Lane, Lane, Lane .. what to say about Lane. He is the best dad ever. I love watching him coach Hunter's games and push Hunter to be the best b/c we all know he can be! Thanks for everything you 3 men do for us! We greatly appreciate you!
This is just a random picture that I found and LOVE of the 2 of them.

::2 Years and Counting::

Note: I did start this on my actually anniversary June 9, 2009!

Wow, so today Jeremy and I have been married for 2 years. Crazy how fast this time has gone! I love this man with every fiber of my being and I couldn't imaging my life with out him.Our first date was onMay 31, 2003 at the Old Spaghetti Factory. It was fabulous. Since that time we have been together non-stop and loved every minute of it (at least I have!) Jeremy and I started looking for engagement rings roughly around September 2006. I picked out my perfect ring and Jeremy picked it up sometime around October 2006. Now I know you are all thinking that I got it sometime shortly thereafter, but you would be wrong! I actually didn't get my ring until 12:01 am on January 1, 2007. I loved it. I told Jeremy he was not allowed to propose to me anytime during December before Christmas because I didn't want this to be his excuse to not buy me any presents (yes I am that selfish) so he just held on to the ring. I still don't think he was actually planning on proposing on New Year's eve but he just decided that night was as good as any. And considering we already had our wedding day planned it was good he did it then.
We had 6 months to plan the wedding which to some is a short time but as stated above we had been together for 4 years by this time so of course I knew EXACTLY what I wanted our wedding to be like, basically Jeremy didn't really have an option or say in anything except the music. Trust me he didn't care! We were married at 4 pm on Saturday June 9, 2007 and then the party began. I loved our wedding day. I want to do it every year but my dad would kill me since it was kind of expensive the first time! By the time we got married we were both so ready to be Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland and Bryson! I love our little family and couldn't ask for anything more!

I want Jeremy to know how much I love him and Bryson and love that they allowed me to be part of their lives!
Here's to the rest of our lives together! I love you so much and thank you for the best 2 married years and 6 years together of my life!

::What a Week::

Where to begin!!! Last Tuesday June 2 my mom received a phone call from the fire department. They had just taken my father to Jordan Valley Hospital because he had a severe heart attack. Yeah crazy huh! He had a 99% blockage in his main artery to his heart so they placed a stint to open up the artery and now he is better than ever! Seriously, he was released from the hospital on Thursday morning and by Friday afternoon he had gotten all his yard work done. He is crazy but very healthy and happy! We are so grateful that he was ok things could have been so much worse! Thank you to all who called and visited we really appreciate your concern!

::Memorial Weekend 2009::

Well, what a weekend we just had! Jeremy, Bryson, Kira, myself, my parents, and my sis and Ty all ventured to Mesquite to celebrate Memorial weekend. When I was younger I used to go down there every year with my mom's side of the family and just loved it so my sister and I decided that we needed to bring back this tradition and start going again just our fam! We had such a great time, there is nothing better than laying the pool and doing absolutly NOTHING else for 4 wonderful days. We decided to give Bryson's mom a break and take both kiddies with us and I think Kira had a great time with us! I know we all had so much fun with her and Bryson. She is such a little sassy pants in everything that she does and she is developing her little attitude every minute of every day and its so much fun to watch her grow up and watch Bryson be the best big brother ever.

Me, Jeremy and the kids left Friday morning about 8 am. We stopped in St. George for our covetted In N' Out burger and then went on to show Bryson was Las Vegas is all about. Every time we go he always asks if he can go with us and then gets really upset when we tell him it is not made for little kids so we decided to show him what Vegas is all about. We parked our car at Bally's hotel and walked the Strip down to M&M world and Coca-Cola Factory and by the time we got there he was done and said Vegas is just hot and not really that cool so we treked back to our car and headed to Mesquite for some pool side fun! At least he got Vegas out of his system for a while now, he still really wants to see it at night so we told him next time we will go at night time to see the lights.

That is pretty much our whole trip and it was fantastic. We took tons of pics so we will get a slide show going and get it posted ASAP!! PICS FINALLY!

::Happy Mother's Day::

So I couldn't let today go by with out wishing my mom a happy mother's day! I actually want to wish all mom's out there a happy mother's day. I have the greatest mother and the greatest mother in law ever! This little man makes me love to be a step mom (even though I hate that term) I couldn't ask for a better life or a better way to get some "mothering" experience. He is the best step son, son, friend, and brother ever and makes being a "mom" the best. I know he treats his mom like a princess and he wants to wish her a happy mom's day.

I also can't let today go by without wishing this wonderful woman below a happy mother's day. She is both mom and dad to her kids and does anything and everything for them. She is the greatest mother that these two little kiddies could ask for.
I also have the greatest sister in laws (sorry no pics of them on this computer) that are the best mom's ever. Jana and Brook I love you both and I learn so much from you every day!

::Graduation Day::

Well, the day has FINALLY arrived! Jeremy and I graduated from the University of Utah today! What a great accomplishment and so much fun to do it together. I just want Jeremy to know how proud I am of him (I had to push him for like 6 years to get him here) but he did it and is such an amazing guy for it!

His tassel kept blowing in my face so I had to hold it down!

Here's us with both our parents!
Here's us with his parents

Here's us with my parents

And here's us before the Ceremony just being silly!

::More Love Letters::

This letter is from Bryson's first girl friend Brinley. She wanted him to know she still loved him and he made her happy. At least we know he is a sweet kid and makes the girls happy!

Thursday, April 30, 2009

::Bryson's Love Letters::

Yes our little 7 year old Bryson has been getting love letters! He has actually had a girl friend named Brinley for about a month now. He used to say he loved her and she loved him, he even bought her a necklace when he went to the Grand Canyon. Well yesterday I pick him up and this is our conversation:
Bryson: "So I have a new girlfriend."

Me: "You do, What is her name?"

Bryson: "I actually don't know, I found her for my friend Nathan but I decided to keep her myself."

(at this point I am laughing and trying to explain that this poor girl is not a toy he found and just take back)

Me: "Well what about Brinley?"

Bryson: "I don't love her any more." (So simple I know)

Me: "Well does she know you don't love her any more?"

Bryson: "Yeah I told her today."

Me: "What did she say?"

Bryson: "She said that I hurt her feelings and it wasn't fair." (So sad, poor girl in first grade with her first heart break)

Me: "Well at least you were honest and told the truth I am proud of you. Now tomorrow I want you to find out your new girlfriend's name."

(A little time has passed and I notice dark spots on his shirt so of course I ask what that is)

Bryson: "Well, member I said I found her for Nathan and then took her back?"

Me: "Yeah" (question marks in my eyes)

Bryson: "Well, Nathan got mad that I took her back so he punched me, but it's ok I got to sit in the office until school got over and me and Nathan are still friends."

Me: "Ok, well I'm glad you are friends but no more fighting ok."

(This is the second fight he has gotten in this week over a girl, the first one was over Brinley and now this fight over the unnamed girl)
What to do What to do!!

::The dog I love, but not always::

This dog will be the death of me. I love him to death and 95% of the time he is the BEST dog ever. He is so good and minds us and takes really good care of Bryson, but some days I come home from work and find a mess. Marley stays in the garage while we are gone (if you wonder about this see the post titled "Dumb Dog" and that will explain it all) and we have started noticing he is chewing, clawing, and literally tearing up the drywall in there. Take a look at these pics...

::Baseball Season has begun::

Bryson FINALLY had his first baseball game on Friday night. His baseball season was supposed to start on April 3rd but because of the wonderful Utah weather we of course had snow!
Anyway, he did awesome and had a blast. I love baseball season, sitting at the ball park in the nice warm sun what could be better. Hopefully it just continues to get warmer.

::Cocoa Cinnamon Princess::

Our best friend Cocoa moved on to doggy heaven today! Cocoa was born on October 29, 1995 and came into my parents home on December 25, 1995. She has been our best friend in the whole world and will be greatly missed.

Cocoa was, in human years, 100 years old so it was her time to move on but just such a sad day. I got a call from my dad today at 3:30 pm he had already been at the vet for an hour with Cocoa. The vet took an x-ray of Cocoa because she went from 80 pounds to 54 pounds and was not eating, in the x-ray they found 2 very large masses that they are assuming were cancer and we knew that it was time for Cocoa to go. I got to go to the vet's office to say my good byes before she moved on. I just wanted to say how much I love her and how much I am going to miss her!

::WTW - 2009::

Well, my birthday was on Saturday April 4th! I loved it and had the best time in the whole world! It all started on Friday when my family took me to dinner to Tepanyaki! Love that place. Jeremy got me the roses up above and had them sent to my work on Friday. I loved it and was so surprised!
On my birthday my friends Jenn, Chandra and sister Chelle all went to Falling Water's Day Spa to get ourselves some Glitter Toes. If you have never heard of this or done this you should. It is awesome. I found out about it from my friend Rachel who is actually a nail tech at the day spa! Everyone should call and make and appointment. We tried to show them off but it didn't work out very well but take my word for it they are awesome!
Saturday evening was the BEST birthday party I have ever had! Jenn did a great job planning it for me! It was our very own WTW! (white trash weekend)! We started off the night at 5 pm by having "arts and crafts" time. Our friend Jeff made some great stencils and bought spray paint and we made our very own WTW shirts.

Here is our stencil that Jeff created for WTW. It says "White Trash Weekend" and has a picture of a trailer on it! It was so great!

My cutest bestest friend Jenn in her WTW shirt. She was the party planner and was the best party planner ever. She will be planning my b-day parties for the rest of my life!!!

After arts and crafts time was over we headed to La Luna for mexican food! It was so much fun. My mom, sister, Tyler and great friend Krystal showed up for dinner. I was so glad to see them all there!Once we finished dinner our plan was to head to All Star Lanes for some good ol' bowling but when we called them they wouldn't take reservations and it was an hour wait so unfortunately we weren't able to go bowling but some of us did end up at gasoline alley for some arcade fun! I forgot how much fun an arcade to be. It was so much fun to just be a kid again!

Me and Jeremy after I beat him at a race car game!
Here is Jenn and I playing Dance Dance Revolution. This game was so much fun and obviously you can see just how much Jenn got into it!

Once we were done playing at Gasoline Alley we headed to the Westerner from some good ol' country dancing fun! I have to say this is one of my new favorite places ever. They have so much to offer! You can reserve a table by the dance floor so you can watch the dancing and also participate in the dancing and they also have Karaoke Kriminals (Yes they spell criminal with a K). I loved every minute of it! Pretty much everyone sang at least on karaoke song, even my husband and I never thought I would see the day that would happen!

Here is me and our friend Steve doing some swing dancing on the dance floor. We for sure put the other's on the floor to shame because we are that awesome! (sorry such a bad picture)
Here is Dan, Jeremy and Derek being silly and listening to some Karaoke fun!

Here is Jenn and I singing Deana Carter "Strawberry Wine" I loved it and so did every one else (when we were finished) I knew that I sucked at singing but actually listening to myself in a microphone in a small room I pretty muched sounded like a dying cow! It was really sad but still really fun and I would probably do it again!

Here is my husband and Dan singing to me! They were just awesome!

Well, these are just some of the pictures that were taken! I think all in all we took about 75 pictures but I didn't want a huge post of all pics so I just picked a few of my favorites! Sorry this post was so long but I just wanted to remember every detail of this birthday! I can't believe I am 26 years old. I still feel like an 18 year old which I love!
