Birthday BBQ Bash

Disclaimer: I LOVE BIRTHDAY'S!! Probably a little too much.  My mom says, "Sometimes your birthday is just another day, and you have to be okay with that."  Sorry mommy, but no you don't. You can run around your backyard naked (check) You can roller-blade through WalMart (check) and you can have your cake and eat it too (check check and double check).
 We had a BBQ at my house and the weather was perfect, the food was perfect, and the company was surprisingly entertaining! JK, I love my family.  That's truly all I wanted was to be surrounded by family, and my other mother Debbie aka Nanie got to stay with us for a couple days too to help me with Isla during the wedding.  She deserves a big THANK YOU, and more hugs to come.

 This is me being wild, because that's what you do on your birthday :)

 My Uncle Karl and Aunt Denise got me this fabulous hat, and Travy-pants (trying to escape behind me) got me those awesome sun-g's! What a perfect B-day I had! I've already decided that next year I'm running away...from 30! Yikes. I hope I stay 29 forever.

Who Doesn't LOVE a Spring Wedding?

Last Friday I had the privilege of going to Madeline Jackson's wedding in the Salt Lake Temple.  I got up early that morning and headed over to her hotel room to do her hair. After too much chatting we ran out of time, and had to rush to get hair and make-up done.  She looked beautiful! It was so fun to just sit in the sealing room, listen to the covenants they were making and see how in love they were! The flowers were beautiful, the day was sunny, and I just soaked it all up! Enjoy! 

 The hair....

Quick Trip to I.F.

Soooo...I got the itch to go to Idaho Falls.  My friend Annie (whose middle name Isla holds) had a baby girl and I wanted nothing more than to hold that little bean! I snuggled her almost the whole time I was there! It was heaven! I didn't get a picture though. I'm mad I forgot that (as I documented the rest of my trip) which goes as follows:

 Singing (screaming?) Augustana's "20 Years" until my mouth hurts, while I drive through the one knows where I'm from...

 City center in sight! I drove past my old house and my heart swelled with homesickness! I might have shed a tear or two, but then I was brave and kept driving to Annie's.

 Picked up my other half- Marci Dimick and went to the Hairshow! Apparently when you reach your late 20's to early 30's, the music seems to loud, you can't see as good as you once used to and you yawn all through the show trying to find the 21yr version of yourself that could stay up all hours of the night. Yikes! We had fun!
 Marci and I...sure do miss her.
I have to add that I stayed at my parents for Easter, and Tim made an appearance which was wonderful! We had an amazing dinner, and easter egg hunt! Then on Monday night Chelsea and I went on a date to Firehouse and then ICE SKATING!! I totally recommend it! They had music, lights, and pina colada scented dry-ice smoke! We had fantastic time! So, long story short that was probably one of the best weekends I've had in as long as I can remember!

What I've been up to these days.....

Life has been busy...and I have been wound a bit too tight. So, I:
 Watched these...

 Mowed this...

 ...and smelled these. Ahhhhh! That's better!
