May all your wishes come true Ü

Today was my family birthday party after church. It was a lot of fun to have most of the family there to celebrate! Due to a little wind, my mom and sister had to block my candles from being blown out with that cool blanket. I must say that blowing out 23 candles was pretty tough!

My Love and Me. Both one year older Ü I love him SO much!

Miss Becca and Brandon. She adores him!

Me and Lady Kathryn. She's a DOLL!

Brittney and Me. She is pretty much one of my favorites.

Happy Happy Birthday!

So I am sorry I have no pictures but I had my 23rd birthday and it has passed. Yesterday being my day off AND my birthday this is what I did:

1. Worked 5 hours of overtime from 5-10.
2. Was given a cupcake with a candle before work from my Hunny. Ü
3. Came home and sat around for awhile, took a nap, and got my presents from my parents. (a really cute nice gray sweater I wanted!)
4. Got ready to go to our joint birthday party at Big Al's bowling alley where A LOT of our great friends spent the night hanging out with us!
5. Right before the party, I got to open my presents from Brandon and his family. (The black coat I REALLY wanted REALLY bad, One Tree Hill season 5 Ü, and a quote book from Brittney)

So all in all, my birthday was pretty good. Can't believe I am 23. It's really really weird for me. Ha! Anyway, hope all is well with everyone else. And thanks again to all who helped make this a good birthday!

My Paint Job Ü

Today I got the chance to help my friend's Erek and Stef paint the room for their Baby Brayden. It was SO much fun because I LOVE to paint and it's just exciting getting ready for babies! She picked a really pretty green that matches the crib bedding PERFECTLY. Since the sheets are striped I had this idea to put a few stripes on the wall to add some fun perks. This is how it turned out and I am SO proud! And thanks to Erek, we got it all done today Ü

These stripes are on the opposite wall than the others

So let me know what you think! I LOVE it!!!!!! Makes me want to repaint my room too!

I want a new job so bad.... seriously

I am beginning to HATE Dollar Tree. I get there and feel like I never left and it just puts me in a bad mood for the rest of the day.... Nothing I loved about this job is still there. GRRRR

Our camping trip to Merrill Lake

We had the opportunity to take our last camping trip of the summer with some friends over Labor Day weekend. It was SO nice to get away one last time! All the boys headed up to Merrill Lake Wednesday night and all us girls followed Thursday when we got off work. The boys had camp set up which was nice not having to worry about all that! It was such a nice weekend and here are some pictures to share! Enjoy!

Here I am everyone... DON'T WORRY. I am fine! Just been SO busy and I have a lot of pictures to prove it!

I was able to tag along with Brandon's family to Florence again this year! Every year they go down there to ride and spend some family time. We left right after work on Monday the 18th and came home on the 23rd. It ended up raining the first two night we were there but then through our perseverance the sun came out and it ended up being SO SO SO SO much fun! Here are some pictures for you all to enjoy!

And to top it off, here is a video of me and my crash for this year. Both years I have gone I have crashed Brandon's four wheeler. This year wasn't NEARLY as bad as last year AND we got it on tape! hahahaha... go ahead you have my permission to laugh... HA!!!
