My family and I decided to celebrate my birthday (26!! YIKES)Saturday so it was a fun filled weekend for sure! It started Friday night after work I went to buy myself a "birthday outfit" I decided if I called it that then I could buy it guilt free and it worked!! Then I went and got my "birthday nails done and a birthday pedicure" (again... guilt free!). When I got home I did a little more pampering- colored my hair, bleached my teeth, tanned my face etc... Then Saturday morning, in the POURING rain Michael and I attempted garage sales. We got a bunch of Cd's, a few ties for Elder Packham, and a couple other random items. When we got home Michael and I got ready (Me in my new birthday outfit) and we headed to Grandma's house to play cards. Then when the rest of the family was ready we all headed to Outback Steakhouse for a yummy dinner (THANKS DAD!!). Right when everyone had sat down at the table, Emily came over and draped a pink feather boa around me along with a purple birthday cone hat. Let me tell ya, I looked lovely! Leave it to Emily to do something like that (Pictures soon to come- Thanks Em!!) Then we went back to mom's house and we opened presents. It was great!! Michael got us concert tickets to Def Leopard/Poison/Cheap Trick- I can't wait!! Em and Ben got me containers for spices that go on a magnet board and a bag of fun toys like bubbles, coloring books and crayons and a superhero book that has my face on the characters bodies- awesome!! I make one good looking hulk!! Grandma got me two big new cookie sheets, mom got me 2 sil pats for the cookie sheets, and dad gave me moola. Then we made room for some delish chocolate cake that mom made even though we were all completely stuffed from dinner (Thanks mom!!) Then we went and looked through all of the recent pictures that Elder Packham had sent home and those were great! Then back over to grandma's house to finish our card game. We ended up getting home around 11:30 that night. Sunday I was kind of struggling with my back again and just felt yucky so I slept almost the entire day. I think I woke up around 4:00pm (I think I must have needed some sleep!) Once I finally woke up we took it easy and Michael and I spent the night watching Frasier seasons together. It was a good weekend. I feel like I didn't accomplish a single productive thing... but sometimes that's nice.
