A Most Wonderful Birthday

I didn't make very many plans for my birthday this year. I figured I would just go with the flow, fly by the seat of my pants, that sort of thing. And then it turned out to be one of my favorite birthdays yet.

I was on a spiritual high from going through the temple two days earlier, and the night before I got my hair cut and styled by my cousin Melanie - I love getting my hair cut by her, even when it takes six hours because my hair doesn't like to take color like it should. We watch movies and just laugh and laugh. And she and my cousin Heidi gave me my first official birthday present: a supere cute shirt and necklace. Those cousin girls of mine always have the best taste. My hair turned out really nicely, and I felt all new and special.

Then I went to work. Everyone at my work is SO NICE! They all wished me a happy birthday and sang to me and everything. Plus, I got called into the office of the head of my department, and...I got a promotion! What a birthday gift, right? (Leave aside the fact that now it makes my decision about grad school even harder to make) Really I'll be doing the same thing I was doing before, so no new responsibilities or anything, but I do get more money. That's awful nice. I am now a full-blown video editor - no more assistant!

My mummy, aunt Jorji, and cute cousins took me out to lunch at The Hungry Bear (inside the Quilted Bear store). They gave me cakes and gifts and wonderful things. And when I returned to work, on my desk were gifts from my coworkers: a bouquet of beautiful flowers, a box of cheddar bunnies, and - get this - a Captain America Lego set!!! Best coworkers ever, right?!? They know me too well. I built Captain America and his motorcycle and drove it around the office for the rest of the afternoon.

After work I drove to Provo to have dinner with Josh, then we headed back to the Springs for a small party with friends. I brought up all our old Legos and gave everyone half an hour to build anything they wanted. Then my dad judged the creations and we had three winners who got Lego mini figures as prizes. I have very creative friends. I know, it sounds like a 7 year old boy's party, but it was so fun! At least, I had fun. Hopefully everyone else did too.

All in all, a pretty awesome birthday.
