It is officially Over Now...

I am now 21 years of age... and I don't feel the tiny-bit different. I look the same. I am not any smarter or wiser, nor did I win a million dollars. But I did have a very fun, amazing, magnificant, amazing, perfect first birthday away from home. Thanks to Levi and a few other people I had a great birthday.

Here is how the day went. I was awaken
ed by my niece and nephew calling me on the phone at 7:30 a.m to sing to me. Just for those of you who are not aware, my first class of the day was at two in the afternoon. They sure are lucky
it was my birthday. I then received text message after text message wishing me a happy day. I eventually turned my phone off and went to take a shower, thinking it would help me fall back asleep. NOPE! Marc, my brother (whom I share a birthday with) called and talked to me for about 20 minutes. Not going to lie, it was weird not seeing him on our birthday. Miss you Dave! After that I got up, got dressed in my roommate Letty's closet and went out to breakfast with Levi at a local breakfast joint here in town called JB's. Great food and cheapperfect way to start it off. We then went bowling! My bowling class is paying off. Levi killed me our first game, but I beat him the second one... only by three points, but I still won the bet, and that's all that matters, right?
After I killed Levi I had to go to class. Which ended up being way easy and way fun. Then off to Idaho Falls (the near by mall) to kill the money I got from my parents. Being 21 and all I have felt the need to update my closet with some maturity. So that is exactly what I was looking for. Levi was a good sport and walked around while I shopped. I got some really nice teacher-pants, and a ton of shirts and cardigans. Nothing says teacher like a nice cardigan.
Once done at the Mall we met up with Sharda and Dan at Red Robin. So yummy! Of course Sharda mentioned to our waiter that it was my birthday. I was lucky en
ough to put the balloons awkwardly around my years while they sang me to. Best thing ever! Dinner was short and sweet and off to Val's where my cheesecake was cooling in the fridge. Family tradition that I couldn't go without.

Little did I know that night that my birthday was not over. Friday night Levi and I went out to dinner at this horrible place in Rigby. We can laugh about it now, but who has every heard of a hot hamburger. Yuck!
He was acting so dumb the whole night. He kept making random stops to look for lightbulb at the worst stores possible. It was getting a little old and a bit frustrating. But little did I know, for when I walked into my apartment to "check our online tickets" I was greeting by about 25 people yelling surprise at me. I about peed a little. He got me, and he got me good. I've never had a surprise party thrown in my honor before and this was a great first one. Thanks Levi, Sharda and Cassie for putting so much effort into makin
g it so special to me. It blew me away how many friends I actually do have here at school. And a variety of ones too. Married with kids, old empty nester, freshman, serious, not serious at all, from home and roommates. It was great! I really had an amazing birthday and wouldn't ask for it to be different in any way.

From my parents I got a new camera, so I am hoping I get better at taking my camera with me to all the places I go. I have been doing pretty good so far, right?

I had to put this on here because I find it hilarious! This video is a movie of Val, Mindee and Levi singing me happy birthday over my cheesecake. Oh! And Val got me some beer. But the non-alcoholic kind.

I am a Professional!

I think I need to add a new skill to my Resume... Pumpkin Carving! Now I know what ya'll are thinking, but I am getting extremely good! Friday (yes, just a week after my last pumpkin carving) I carved again... this time it turned out so good! No more silly faces for me. I only do legit carvings. The trick... work from the inside out. It prevents tarrying.
I am required to state that I had the help of Levi on this one... and I must repent and admit that his last pumpkin was not ugly, but we deleted the picture off both our phones and it is now rotten. I also am to mention that I like throwing him under the bus... it's what I do, what can I say =D

Anyways, here is the latest pumpkin... and guess what? For FHE (Family Home Evening) we're carving pumpkins!! I think I might be addicted!

This is my group of friends. They only invite me to do things because I carry around Flat Stanley. He is everybody's friend. This picture was taken at the ice caves just outside of Rexburg. It was an amazing climb and had some scary, slippery spots, but as you can tell there were some men there to help us woman. Actually, two of the boys just went ahead of us. Only one stayed back and helped. Can you guess which one? As you can tell the caves have had some different interior decorators come in and add their individual touch. Some of it is funny, most of it isn't. The floor is all ice and most of the walls are too. The part where this picture was taken was at the end of the caves. There was a HUGE ice slide that took down deeper, but once you get down, it gets really hard trying to get back up.
This is my pumpkin Patrick! He is my best one yet. Last Friday I got really bored so I went to the pumpkin patch with Levi and we carved some! His is too ugly to share with you, but mine turned out great... as you can see. On the other side there are ghosts. They turned out horrible!!! But still better than Levi's owl.
Yesterday I spent almost 2 hours at the D.I. looking at children's books.For those who don't know what the D.I. is (Desseret Industries) it is like a Good Will, but a million times better! I found so many great ones. I got 10 books for 5 dollars! Forget!
Well, that's all I have been up to the past 2 weeks. Hopefully today will be exciting!

I got an early birthday present from my mom and dad! An addition to Kermytt! With the help from Levi, I was able to get it on in no time.

My basket! She is Kermytt's pet monkey because she likes to sit on her back and get free rides. Thanks again mom and dad. I can tell this will be a great birthday!
