The Time Has Come . . .

I cannot believe how fast this summer has gone by. The end of August always seemed so far away so I certainly I didn't expect to be at this point so quickly. Now that it has come, I am not quite sure what to do with myself. I feel like I am about to step into a strange new world and it scares me. As I pack the last few things into boxes, it is starting to dawn on me that I am actually going back to Utah, back to Logan, back to school. Here's to hoping the next 9 months fly by!

Birthday Weekend

This weekend has been a really great one and I am sad for it to be over. It started on Friday afternoon when the Bullock's stopped by our house on their way home from their family vacation in Yosemite. I hadn't seen them in several months so I had a hard time letting them go when they walked in the door. When K.C. got off work we jumped in the car headed up to Lake Tahoe. The last time we had gone up to the lake and stuck our feet in, we desperately wished we had brought our swimming suits because the water felt so nice (not freezing cold like at the beginning of the summer). So we brought our suits and spent a good amount of time in the water jumping over the small waves and trying to get away from "sea monsters" (aka K.C.) Sadly the Bullock's were able to only stay the one night with us and headed out early Saturday morning for home, but it was so much fun to have them here and we hope they can come out again sometime soon.

Since my birthday was on a Sunday this year, K.C. took me out to dinner on Saturday night. We went to a local sushi restaurant "Wasabi's" and chowed down on some pretty tasty rolls. Although it was nothing in comparison to "Happy Sushi" in Logan, it was good enough to satisfy my cravings for sushi that were plaguing me since we moved out here. Sunday morning, I woke up to some delicious cinnamon-swirl bread french toast before heading off to church. Later that night after some fun rounds of Rummikub and Mexican Train I opened the presents K.C. got for me that have just been sitting in our bedroom for a couple weeks now tormenting me! I got a candle warmer lamp, some more tupperware, new earphones, and a Pride and Prejudice piano book.

The last gift I opened up was just full of surprises! The box was super heavy and K.C. specifically made sure it stayed right side up. After digging through lots of plastic bag padding, I found another smaller box sitting on top of K.C.'s free weights that had been taped to the bottom of the box! He certainly is super creative and it made us both laugh really hard. Inside the smaller box was another piano book with the music from Wicked! I was so happy and excited to start learning those amazing songs. Flipping through to look at the complexity of the songs, I felt a section of thicker pages but completely went passed it without thinking twice. Going back the other way I stopped and my eyes rested upon some paper K.C. had stuck in between the pages...

*GASP* "What is this?! What does this mean!?" (Yes, those were my exact words with some screams and laughs in between.) For those who did not see the answer right away like myself, here is a closer look...

AHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Oh. My. Gosh. My wonderful husband is taking me to San Francisco to see Wicked! Talk about a freaking amazing birthday present!! He realized that will be the last weekend we have together before I go back to Utah State and he wanted to make it a good one. Needless to say, I am just a-little-bit-a-lot excited to go. :-) Thanks babe for a wonderful 21st birthday! I love you!

Another Opportunity!

I know my last post on here was about the silhouette but I ran into another giveaway and I still really want one (especially since my birthday is just around the corner, it would be a perfect birthday present to myself!) Fingers crossed that I'll get it this time because that would be so stinking cool! If you want to enter the contest for yourself, go here. Wish me luck!
