Fun weekend, and my birthday
Bryan and Kambria and I went down to Denver this weekend to celebrate my nephew Hayden's 1 year birthday celebration. We went to the zoo and I think Bryan was more excited to go to the zoo than anyone else. Tess, my sister, made a comment that Bryan is a like a little boy when he gets excited. I think that is what makes me love him so much. He is a fun guy to be around. So Kambria had her first zoo experience. We had a lot of fun looking at the monkeys, especially because that is what we call Kambria; monkey face. It was a lot of fun.
Then my mom, Tess, and I went to Dre Downs' bridal shower. It was a lot of fun seeing how incredibly happy Dre is. I am so proud of her and the choices she had made so that she can have an eternal marriage. She inspires me more than she knows. And while we were at the bridal shower, in walks my "sister" Ester. She is not related in any way, but looks like me and people have called us sisters before. My mother thinks so too. So I told Ester she needs to date my brother Brady when she moves to BYU in January. I talked to Brady yesterday and he said he would be up to it come January. So we will see how that goes. I think he is open to most anything, but a little shy about the girl situation... He will do just fine and the one that marries him will have a GREAT catch.
So yesterday, October 15, was my 27th birthday. I feel pretty old, and as my dad says, "Well then that makes ME old." But truthfully it does makes me feel old to say I am 27 now. I know it is part of life, but it still doesn't change the fact that saying 27 when someone asks how old you are feels old to me... I had a good birthday, despite the fact that I was a little grouchy about the whole 27 thing...And for that I am sorry, esp. To Bryan and for the fact I got upset at him. I know he forgives me and I him, but I still wanted to say I am sorry!
I had a little birthday 'pie' instead of cake and that was fun. Then My in laws sang happy birthday and I blew out my candles. Hopefully, my with will come true. I will let you know if it does! I got some coupons for dinner and ice cream, some smelly lotions and soap and some nice earrings from the in-laws, Amanda included. I got some more earrings and a work out outfit from Bryan. We hopefully will go out for a nice birthday dinner some time this week since we couldn't on my birthday since it was on a Sunday.
Well I should log off for now and go exercise...yep that is right I am doing well on it so far...wish me luck!
