Celebrating America and #14

Is it too late to post about the Fourth? Well in any case I am about to. I am all about my summer bucket list and fireworks just happens to be #14. This fourth was one to remember. I started my day off with a stellar job of sleeping in. Then Cory's family came into town. We went to lunch with them in Salt Lake and then ended the day going to the Stadium of Fire. Not going to lie I was a little apprehensive to watch the Beach Boys. I mean they are, well you know....old. OH my goodness they were so awesome. I knew all but two of their songs! Cory's family thought I was an old person at heart and maybe I am but I grew up listening to the Beach Boy's songs. The fireworks were to die for! I really had a wonderful celebration of this wonderful country that we live in!

The Best Day of the Year

I am a madhouse.  Blogging has not been on my priority list. Really nothing has but running around and doing a million things. I have been on a steady mission to check all things off my summer bucket list which I will share here. As a grand re entrance into blogville I decided to share my most favorite day of the year..my birthday!!! (That definitely warrants three exclamation points.) For those of you who know I simply adore my birthday. It is the one day of the year that I get to do and be exactly who I want to be. I have no expectations except on for the ones I have for myself.  A wonderful day was spent with my dear roommates and finished with a perfect little party. I can't believe I have been the big 2-2 for almost a month now. Yikes! Oh pictures of the party brought to you by the lovely Brittany Nelson. Also the lovely lights you will see were masterfully hung by Cory. He alternated between climbing the roof and climbing into trees to get it to look so beautiful! I loved it. Here is the birthday video too. This video documented the best birthday on record.
