Day Two Hundred Seventy-Eight

It's my 24th birthday today!!

I had a great day! I didn't have much of anything to do, but I filled my time well and with whatever I wanted to do. First, I decided to start the Wii Fit 30 Day Challenge again and hopefully make it through. It's one of my 101 in 1001! The workout was surprisingly easy... all this running (or lack there of in the last few weeks) must be helping a little bit, right?

I also spent some time vacuuming and mopping, because who else is going to do it? I actually enjoy cleaning, so this wasn't a big deal. Christina came over to chat for a bit on her way past my house too! When she left, I finished vacuuming upstairs, then brought Dex on a nice 30 minute walk. I then spent some time playing Sims and reading!

I met my friends for dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen today too! First, I stopped by at Best Buy to use the gift card Brandon's family gave me. I got two new CDs: The Band Perry and Parachute. Then I wandered around Borders before we had to go check-in.

Dinner was great!! The food was good, but the company was even better. I was surrounded by almost all of my closest friends here. It was such a good time and I'm very grateful for their presence during the deployment. We only had one man there, and that was Janelle's husband Cole, who came home early from deployment.

Anyway, now I'm home and enjoying the quiet night with my boys. I thought I'd show you me through the years! Excuse the horrible quality, I got lazy and just took pictures of the pictures, haha.

That's me as a baby with my daddy. He has hair!

That's me about 2 or 3 on the right and maybe 3 or 4 on the left.

And this is me in third and fourth grade. Notice how my hair is shorter in the fourth grade picture... my mom finally let me choose my haircut and I chopped it all off.

Aw, and it's me now! How I've grown!!

I had a great birthday. I got plenty of phone calls and TONS of FB well-wishes. It was a good day!


  1. Good choice on The Band Perry - I bet their cd is great! Sounds like you had a wonderful day! Happy Birthday!
