Birthday week

The beautiful tulips and irises that Trent sent me.

I turned 27 on Sunday and Trent turns 30 tomorrow. We celebrated with Trent's family on Sunday with dinner and presents and launching water balloons with a sling. Good times. I got the cutest bag from my Troy and Jennifer and other fun stuff from everyone (Sarah, Emily, my mom, Lindy, Jill, Abbie, Blake and Andrea, Trent's parents, Karen, and cards from Lauren, Nancy, and Gina- thank you so much everyone for making me feel loved!). My SIL Dusti is giving me my very own day out on Thursday. 6 hours to myself! I can't wait! I will be spending some of my birthday money from Trent for sure. Tonight we are going to Benihana ( a tepanyaki style restaurant) for dinner with some friends. So all in all things are looking pretty great.
Me with Dusti and Jen at Andrea's shower.Here is a hideous picture of me to entertain you all.

My motivation to blog or do anything besides rest is waning lately. Maybe it is the pregnancy or maybe i am just a bum. Anyway, I hope this year I will be my best self. A crazy 27 year old with 4 great kids and a fantastic husband who I find absolutely beautiful. I hope to improve as a mother and a friend and a wife. I plan to work on my spiritual and physical fitness. I hope to improve as a homemaker, and find joy in each day and not sweat the little stuff.

I am glad it was great! I love you so much!

I am jealous of the Benihana trip! I am so in the mood for that!

Great goals! I hope to do a few of those things too, minus 3 kids.
