Big Spender

Watched this for the first time last night...
If you have not seen it yet, I highly recommend it!
Should I be a little worried if there were parts
in the movie that reminded me of myself?
I think it is time for a shopping spree....;)

We are family!

This past week my sister Mariann and her family came out to visit from Alabama. It was so fun having them here and I am so happy that they were able to come out and visit. Since they can only come out once a year my mom always makes sure that we take family pictures while they are here. This year we decided to take the pictures up at the cabin. Of course there was the usual chaos of trying to get all the kids to look at the camera, but it was pretty fun.

My Blue Suede Shoes

So I believe that everyone should give themselves a birthday gift. This year I was trying to think about what I wanted to get for myself and I decided to get a new pair of shoes (really no surprise there! ha ha!).

So I was trying to decide which pair to get when I was reading the blog No Sex and the City. She did a post on Tom Shoes and I decided to check them out. They are a great organization that for each pair of shoes you purchase, they donate a pair of shoes to a child in need! I fell in love with a few pairs but ultimately decided on this pair. They are not suede but bright aqua blue and I love them!

Another reason I decided to get these is the fact that I don't have a lot of flat shoes. I need to work on walking in these without tripping over my own two feet. So far I have had good luck in these shoes so here's hoping I have finally learned to walk! ha ha!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Monday was my 21st birthday! Of course I had stayed up the night before to celebrate at 12:05 a.m. (the time I was born), then at just before 8 a.m. I had a wake up call from Mariann and her family singing happy birthday to me! I heard the same well wishes from everyone else in my family throughout the day (except for Keldon, the little punk was on a cruise in Alaska though so I guess I will forgive him this time!) I had such a good day. My mom took me for a pedicure and bought me a new game. Then I was able to go to lunch with my parents and Grandma and Grandpa Stubbs. That night I was able to go to dinner with my parents, Amanda's family, Shalane and her kids, and Angie and her kids.

After dinner we came back to my house for cake. This year I decided on punch bowl cake (also know as Better Then Sex Cake ha ha). The best part about the cake though is the candles. My mom always forgets to buy candles so this year I had 1 crayon candle and a number 1 candle! ha ha It looked like it said I was 11 instead of 21!

After cake I opened a few more gifts. Amanda gave me a pearl necklace that I love! Shalane gave me a scripture purse she had made full of treats and 2 movies. The funniest part to this was one of the movies was Edward Scissorhands. When I pulled them out to show them to everyone Kassidy saw the picture of him and freaked out! She is slightly scarred of him so when she is not expecting to see a picture of him it always makes her scream. It was pretty funny though.

After cake and presents we went outside and played with some sparklers. I know it is not the 4th yet, but I love sparklers so I wanted to have some on my birthday! The kids had fun, and so did I. It was a great day. Thanks everyone for helping make it a special day for me!
