Birthday Bliss

I have to say that I have had an awesome birthday month!!!! My sweet hubby had the perfect idea of celebrating my B-day in Utah which made it extra special. Not only did we get to go to general conference:
I also got to see best friends, visit my alma mater, and eat at my favorite restaurants. It was an excellent way to celebrate turning the big 2-9:)
Joe had some exciting things happen to as he got to meet up with two mission companions that he hasn't seen since Brazil!!!!! It was hilarious to hear the stories that these 3 told. You would have thought it was just yesterday that they served together as missionaries.
One of my best friends is Amber Watson and lucky for me I got to hang out with her all weekend!!!! She is always so kind to let us stay with her family any time we come to Utah. Here we are facebooking, or blogging, or something, side by side on our lap tops:)Amber has been one of my best friends since we were 5 years old and I know we will be lifelong friends!!! We have such great memories and when we get together we stay up till the wee hours of the night reminiscing over ALL of them:) Luckily we only live a state away so we get to see each other a couple times a year!!!!!! Amber got me a darling charm that she had custom made for me at a local boutique. I will take a pic and add it later!!! It is too cute!!!! I was spoiled with great gifts by friends and family!!! Thank you to everyone for the calls, texts, facebook messages and blog comments!!! Just being remembered made my day!!!!! Here are some of my other fun presents!!!

This week I went to Oregano's with Hilarry, Jaimi, Karli and Katie. Hil and Jaimi have been two of my best friends since junior year at BYU. These girls are gorgeous and hilarious. Our conversations are never dull, that I can assure you:) They treated me to a DELISH dinner and dessert (pizookie of course), an impromptu photo shoot(natch) and some yummy perfume!!! Thanks ladies!!!!!!
We kept trying to get the perfect shot of all of us, which shouldn't be that hard but we are all a little picky:)
This one was a self portrait and Hil cut herself out:(
Take 2....

Here is a group shot of the ladies sans Katie:(
Jaimi and I were cold so they brought us blankets. Hil was making fun of us and wanted to document the moment.

Hey Melissa
I feel like I never have the time to actually leave comments on blogs these days. Like its a race to hurry and check in on people before one of the kids needs me or before something gets destroyed while I'm not watching! : ) Oh well! I just wanted to take the time to say hi. Say that you look great and I'm glad to read that you're doing well!
Happy 29!
