First thing's first: I apologize for not blogging for so long. Guess what? Friday was end of term and semester at school and it was a crazy, crazy, CRAZY two weeks there. But the good news is that it's over and I did what I needed to do and my overall GPA was this close to a 3.8 soooo I'm rounding up.

Anyway! I need to tell you about my birthday! It was yesterday, surprise! And it was the best birthday EVER. It wasn't because I had a huge party or got an iPhone or anything extreme like that, but simply because I was surrounded by my family and friends (sounds like a deathbed)who I love very, very much.

My day started at 6:30am when someone pulled my arm out from underneath the warm covers and then yanked me to sitting up. That followed with someone else putting a brown bag over my head. And during this entire thing the words "Good morning starshine," were repeated over and over again in a-- I'm sorry, I don't know how else to say it-- pedofile voice. Now that was a traumatising few minutes. However, after much trying, I was able to take the brown bag off of my head and see Mary, Jake and Curits. What were they doing in my house at this hour I wondered. Super confused, I knew that the most important thing I needed to do was brush my teeth. So I did. Then we were off. Oh by the way, keep in mind that I was wearing a onesie. Don't judge. They're ever so comfortable and warm to sleep in and I wasn't exactly expecting visitors...

So the four of us, plus my sister Katie, jumped in the car and went driving. We ended up going to Spanish Fork only to find that is was closed. And because Mary had to be at school by 8 (for a choir thing) we decided to go to the one and only McDonald's for breakfast. Believe it or not, they really do have amazing pancakes. Following the meal, we ventured into the play place and told a platera of jokes. Eventually we all went down the slide and got out because, quite frankly, it smelt funny in there. (ps at 7:38am, the exact time I was born and therefor turned 18, I was in said play place. Yes... I don't think I have magically turned into an adult yet.)

When I got home, the plan was to go back to bed. I was exhausted! However when I walked in the door I was bombarded with 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'S!' by my lovely family and we went straight to opening presents. Thank you family and friends for my presents! Everyone is so kind to me-- too kind to me!

My sissy gave me Nie's caldendar. Love.

After that the goal was to maybe go to bed but did I? No. I recieved some money for my birthday and my Mom suggested that I go clothes shopping. Except I always feel bad clothes shopping because I already have clothes and I feel like I should be spending my money on something else. However, I am speaking in general stake conference next Sunday and my Mom suggested I get something for that. It was justified. So I went.

I have never been more successful shopping! I was actually able to find several articles of clothing that I liked and when I tried them on, I still liked them! It's a birthday miracle! Mission accomplished.

Papa on my birthday.

When I came home guess what I did? If you guessed sleep, you are correct! Finally. It was a glorious 2 hour nap. Those were a good 120 minutes because when I woke up, I remembered the fun wasn't over! I watched some Pirates of the Caribbean with my sister and then got ready for a night on the town! But literally, we ended up walking around 'Downtown Historical Provo' a lot! I met my friends, Kylee, Jake and Curtis, in Orem and then went to 'Historical Provo' (like I mentioned). We went out to eat and then on to a show. Food: Gloria's Little Italy. Show: Comedy Sportz. Amazing food, amazing show and amazing company. Oh and I got sung to at both places... that's the best part of birthday's in my opinon. The awkward singing accompanied with the awkward eye contact.... but really. Where am I supposed to look when strangers are singing to me? I never really figured that out. And I won't for at least another year....

I have strange facial expressions.

And then that was that! I came home, climbed into bed and counted my blessings. Because I have a lot. And you are one of them. Thank you everyone for making my birthday so special. I love you all so much and I am so thankful to you have you apart of my lives.

Love my sisters.

ps. I'm an ADUUUUUUUUUUUULT. snl anyone? yeah, I've been wating a while to say that.
