HAPPY BIRTHDAY....TO ME!


Today is my 28th birthday...no really ask Brooklyn. Ok, so maybe she's off by a few years. But only a FEW. My birthday actually began last Friday when James and I took an opportunity to spend some time in Las Vegas. My kiddos dad was going to be there visiting family and so we took the kids there to see him. And being that we were going to be in Vegas that gave James' kids the opportunity to spend a little more time with their mom. So Saturday mornin' we dropped my kiddos off and then hit up Deseret Book to get my first Birthday Present. It's a picture of Christ walking along the shore with a little plate at the bottom that says "Walk With Me" by Greg Olsen. Love it, Love it! We then met Beck and Mike (who so graciously let us stay with them) and their awesome kids for lunch at Joe's. James has been wanting to hit The Shack for some time now but there's not one close to us.

Oh Yes....Let's

Then James and I just spent some time at Beck and Mike's place, watching a little Apple TV and Pirates of the Caribbean....because one can never watch that movie too many times! James then took me to Best Buy to "look around". Then we headed over to Kona Grill and had some amazingly yummy food. (Which on a side note I'm pretty sure I left Vegas with more than souvenirs....my booty took a few for itself).

Mike was kind eough to take a few pics of us outside Kona.

Yep, that there is the man of my dreams....

Then we headed over to the theater to see Ghost Town. Great movie!! Hysterical and there was a dentist in it so of course we had to see it. Honestly though one of the better movies I've seen this year.


Then, we headed back over to Best Buy where James got me my second birthday present...well actually he tried and then decided he also wanted an iphone and the idiot (I'm sorry but that's the nicest word I can think of) couldn't find an Arizona calling area. So James and I went the next day to AT&T and got my awesome new phone. I LOVE that thing. It's like carrying your computer with you. There isn't much this thing can't do. If it could clean my house and cook me dinner I would need nothing else! We also had time to have breakfast with our good friend Josh! It was so good to see him...we miss you guys!!

Then, as today was my actual birthday we went to dinner at Olive Garden. All in all a fabulous birthday. I got a cute fall plate from my sister (so cute!!) and money from my mom and dad, always a good thing. And let's not forget my Happy Birthday phone call that I have received from my grandparents for as long as I can remember. My birthday wouldn't be the same without that call and them singing Happy Birthday! So a big big thanks to all who made this such a fun day(s). Oh and uh, while we were there Walker managed to accidentally push Ashlee off the monkey bars, breaking her arm in the process. (For the full account see Beck and Mike's blog) But amazingly they still love us!
