Mom time :)

So, my Mom randomly came to visit me last Friday and it was good to see her.  We only hung out for like 2 hours and she wanted to check out WinCo so we just grocery shopped and talked.  It is so nice to have some quality time with your Momma, even if it is only for a little bit while you grocery shop!  So we just caught up and then she came back and watched the end of Pitch perfect with me and Raymond.  It was a nice night :)  


My whole family likes to go play in the snow :)  It was really nice to go up Fairview canyon because I haven't gone in a REALLY long time.  It's awesome that you can snowboard for free!  I was really out of shape and out of practice but it was still SO MUCH FUN!  I am excited to get new gear that actually fits me and a new board... snowboarding is just so dang expensive!  One thing that was super fun on this trip is that I brought a bag of my many birthday mini reeses and introduced my family to them, they loved them and we ate a few bites before each run down the mountain! 

This is me with my daddy and brother, they are a couple of studs!  I love them to death and I love going snowboarding and to concerts with them.  

Me and my broseph! He looks so good in blue! 

My Mom and Dad are so cute!  I love them so so much :) 

Me, Bobs and Dad! 

I'm basically a professional snowboarder... except that I'm not.

It wouldn't be a family outing if Ricky didn't come!! 

Soldiers Hallow

For Messina's 27th birthday we went sledding at Soldiers Hallow.  It was SO much fun :) It was freezing and it was snowing a lot of the time we were there.  Provo Canyon was scary to drive through.

He is so good at ugly faces... I think he was given the talent for it! 

It was so nice just to ride our tubes up the hill.  I def ruined these boots though skidding my feet as I went down.

I look so ugly in this picture, we went to Sammy's after sledding in Provo, it was pretty good.

The gang minus Alexa and Garret because she was working.

Bailey and Messina :)

Well, it happened... I turned 21.  I realize I haven't written in awhile, but honestly, turning 21 may be the only important and exciting thing that has happened since Christmas!

This is the lovely view I woke up to!! A pantless wonder she is :) 
So the first thing that I did on my birthday, is go and take my Chemistry exam.  I know, not your ideal birthday activity, but alas, it had to be done!!  Afterwards I just went to class.  A woman named Ginger in my '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' class, brought me a pack of mini reeses!  It made my day because I told everyone in my presentation on Friday that I would love whomever brought me mini reeses for my Birthday!  She is such a sweetheart! 

After school, Alexa picked me up and took me to Yogurtland and then I went on a shopping spree to Playdough's Closet and got a TON of pants... which were much needed.  Then I came home and got ready to go to Spark in Provo to continue my Birthday festivities! 

Shop 'til you drop! 

At Spark we got non-alcoholic beverages and I got these weird pork things on sticks... but they were good and I got full really fast!! Then I opened my presents! 

Tasha even brought me a cupcake so  I could blow out a candle on my Birthday! :)

Next we all went to see the movie "Identity Thief", it was WAY funny.  I liked it.

This is my loot at the end of the day!! I got soooo many good presents and I am blessed with great friends and roommates!  I ended up getting about 7 total bags of mini reeses for my birthday... it was FANTASTIC!! :D 
So that was my ACTUAL DAY OF BIRTH... I will now tell you about my chocolate birthday party at home!  It was AWESOME!  I kind of had a chocolate overload that week I think! 
Here is a sexy picture of me blowing out my candles!! 

My Aunt Wilma makes THEE best chocolate cake in the entire world!! My family literally has it gone by breakfast the day after a birthday because we all eat a piece in a bowl with milk poured over it.... MMMMM :P
We dipped strawberries, pretzels, cinnamon bears and rice crispies in chocolate!
All of the same pictures from above except the bottom right is of me and my BCF DPW (best cousin forever dr. pepper whore), he made it to my birthday party!! 
I absolutely love this picture of my Gramps, it is so funny!! 
I think this photo explains a lot about the relationship I have with my family....

We played charades for a good hour!!
