Best Birthday Yet

Last weekend was my 27th birthday and it was so fun. Friday when I got home from work both sisters were hiding in my bathroom to surprise me. Then 7 of us all dressed up in cute dresses and went and ate at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, Javier's. After that we attempted to go dancing but the place we went to was horrible. If you live in the Orange County area do not go to ILounge. It is awful. Saturday was so hot outside that we all went to the beach and layed out then met up with some guy friends at their house and had so much fun.

Aleisha put together a book of comments that some of my closest loved ones wrote about me. It was the best present ever. Some memories made me laugh so hard and some made me cry but they were good tears. It was such a huge reminder of how blessed I am to have such good family and friends that love me. I am so appreciative of everyone that pitched in to make this the best birthday yet.

Such A Good Saturday

I had one of the best Saturdays I've had in a long time so I thought I would share it :)

I woke up at 8 am and spent 2 1/2 hours cleaning and doing laundry. No one was around but myself and I just loved doing a deep clean to our house. Cleaning really is therapeutic. I completely understand that now. After that it was so sunny and warm outside that I decided to go for a long run. Since the time change I barely see the sun during the week because it's pitch black outside when I'm headed home from work. It was about 78 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. After my run I caught up on last week's episode of "The Office". So amazing!!!! It was such a funny one. Then I rode my bike to the beach and laid out with the girls for 2 hours. The waves were so nice and there were tons of surfers out. There were even Dolphins out swimming with the surfers. Then I came home and showered and was taken to a nice dinner. And was in bed by 11pm.

So, after such a nice day I came to realize again it really is the little things in life that brings us happiness. It's so hard with everything that is wrong in the world to remember this but it helps keep me some what sane.......

It's been way too long.....

I know, I am a horrible blogger. I spend at least 9 hours a day in front of a computer so it sounds like death on most days to spend more time behind one. Let's see what I need to inform everyone on......

Halloween was fun. I didn't want to spend any money on a costume this year so I said whatever anyone will give me for free I would wear. So I ended up getting a Hooter's waitress costume sent to me from the one and only Kristle Jensen. It was a hit. Jessie found one too so we wore them together. We even included the sick socks and tights. Mine said "Midvale, UT" and Jessie's said "Newport Beach". Where is Midvale, UT????? Anyways, we had a good time.

The weather is still really nice here with it being around 75 degrees.

I can't believe it is already November! My brother Bryon just turned 36 yesterday and I can't believe it!!!! We are getting so old. I'm really excited for this time of year. I get to make Chili without sweating and wear cute sweaters. This month is super busy with alot of family birthdays. I will be 27... gulp! Aleisha turns 25 and little Brexie turns 1!!! I so wish I could be there for her birthday party but I will be home a few days after for Thanksgiving. I can't wait to go up to the Heber house and just hang out with my family. I guess absense really does make the heart grow fonder because I really miss them lately :)

Things are good in Newport. Just busy with work and trying not to gain the "Holiday Weight" already. I've been trying to get to the gym in the mornings but that is NOT an easy task.
