My Birthday

The big 24 was a bit of a doozy this year! I had planned a friend dinner for Friday night, April 3rd, because Priesthood was Saturday night. Well, I got really depressed when I learned that nobody could make it. I shouldn't say nobody. The Gardners are always there, regardless. At one point I thought maybe Brian was planning a surprise party because everyone had an excuse not to be there. Some were legit, others were not. I was just going to bag the whole thing but Kacey talked me into going still. I LOVE KACEY! I ended up having a pretty good time. I dropped my kids off at my parents and we were off to Applebees. We ate a delicious meal and then I decided I wanted to go shopping at T.J. Maxx. While shopping, I get "the call." Teagan was EXTREMELY upset and unconsoleable. He would not take my milk from the bottle yet again. My parents were so kind to bring him to us so we could continue our date. After making a small purchase, we went to Kacey's parents to shoot pool and watch "The Devil Wears Prada." Brian wanted to leave before the movie was over so that was LAME! It was a fun night anyways and I thank the Gardners for being such loyal friends. I wish I had taken more pictures but I think I would have looked "not so happy" in most of them.

My actual birthday wasn't too much better. I woke up to this:
And baked myself this:

Because my husband was working until 2. We then decided to take Hayden to the Monsters vs. Aliens movie. That was HILARIOUS! I loved it and so did Hayden, Teagan, & even Gavin (The Gardners came with us).

After that, the boys headed off to Priesthood. What a day to have Priesthood! My dear Grandpa dropped off my senile Grandma off at my mom's while all the boys took off. Just as I thought us gals were going to do something fun, we get left babysitting Nancy who continually asks me the same questions over and over and over and over and over! I love my Grandma but there is a good reason I moved out of her house. She is loveable from a reasonable distance. I decided I wasn't going to sit around. My mom offered to watch a sleeping Hayden and a "just fed Teagan" while I ran to Target. A kid free trip but grocery shopping nonetheless. I ran to Olive Garden to be put on the 80-90 minute waiting list. After the boys were done we all went and enjoyed a very high calorie dinner. So, it didn't turn out too bad, but I keep telling myself, better luck next year! Also, just like Valentines Day, I will stop making it such a big deal so I don't end up disappointed year after year. For Heaven sakes, I AM 24!

Hey old lady, if you come to visit me, I'll make it unforgettable and it will totally make up for any birthdays past and future that don't go so hot, so tell your hubby you want a family vacation out to So Cal. K :)

Just wait until you turn the big 30. Happy Birthday, anyway. I hope next year is better.

Hey Robyn, cheer up, you have tons of people who love you! I don't blame you in the least for being bummed about the snow, this weather is killing me.

Awwww! Happy late birthday! I'm with you, don't expect anything and be thrilled by whatever comes your way!
(but if nothing comes, I'd throw a big fit!)
