Party Like it's MY Birthday!

What comes after April?
What comes at the beginning of May?

That's right...the most beloved day of the year!
I was really lucky this year because I got to milk it three days in a row (May 1st-3rd).

May 1st -

Jason and I met up with the Grubers for lunch and an evening of fun. Amy and her kids were still in town, so that made it extra special.

If this cake looks delicious...that's because it was!...with all the right toppings!

 There's nothing like having the little serfs...I mean your gifts for you!

My (Day 1) birthday was awesome! Thanks Grubers!
May 2nd - 

May 2nd was a Sunday, so that meant Sunday dinner with my family. There's nothing like 2:00 pm church on a fast Sunday...So Jason and I were very anxious for the meal that my family prepared. It was definitely worth the it always is. 

Playing a pre-dinner game, called Blocks or something like that...
...I'm not smiling because I didn't I'll probably never play that game again...

Don't try to add up the numbers...they were just short on candles

I don't remember the house fire...but this picture makes it seem like Jason saved us all from one

My (Day 2) birthday was just as great! Thanks family!

May 3rd - 

Finally, the REAL birthday!

I woke up to an amazing breakfast of orange-cranberry (strawberry) muffins and an omelet for a queen! What I mean by orange-cranberry (strawberry) muffins is Jason knew I didn't like cranberries in my muffins, and to his dismay, when he went to the story EARLY that morning, that's all they had. So, he did his best to remove the cranberries and replace them with fresh strawberries!...we found out it doesn't exactly work that way...but the thought was there! It was so cute!

After putting in a few hours at work, I came home to this masterpiece:

The culprits: Amy, Harlan, Clara, April, Alex, and Mya!

They decorated the room (as you can see) with streamers, balloons, little notes, drawings, candy...the works!! It was such a surprise coming home and seeing this. The bed was covered with my favorite candies and treats!So sweet!! (No wonder why Jason worked so hard the day before to clean the place up!)

After that, Jason took me out for an afternoon of shopping. He said I couldn't leave the mall without spending  X amount of money! He knows just how to make me smile! :)

That evening, I had to rush off to dance practice (our concert was the next weekend and so I couldn't miss). But I didn't mind, no better way to spend the rest of my birthday than dancing with two of my best friends!

Even later that week I got to nibble away at my birthday even more. Amy Stallings treated me to dinner one night, and Jaleah and Bryton treated me to another. It's great to know that I am so loved! haha

And that concludes my Birthday Extravaganza!
Yet another amazing year!


  1. Wow that was an extravaganza! Glad you had a good one! I didn't know you are still dancing. Where? BYU?

  2. Fun birthday! I love the sign on your cake. What a cute idea!

  3. Happy (really late) birthday!!! We will have to go to dinner once Alisha gets back to celebrate all three of our birthdays. The cake your family made you is funny... I added up all the numbers (which don't add up to 23 :) before I scrolled down and saw "don't try to add up the numbers".. too funny! I miss our monthly get togethers! I totally suck at this...but we will for sure get together soon :)

  4. Sounds like such a fun couple of days. So sad we couldn't be there to celebrate with you! Can't wait to see you guys in a few weeks.

    Frozen yogurt the first night we're back ;)
