My new best friend

This was my bday present.


I have already started my first project, and have plans for many many others.

Why didn't I learn to do this years ago??

My Happy Birthday gone

I can't believe another year has gone past. So crazy how time flies. Seems like just yesterday I was blogging about my birthday, and what I got for my birthday. Josh has a lot to live up to after last year. :) With that being said, he did a wonderful job this year, and I couldn't be more excited!

Anyway, before the birthday presents, we spent the weekend at Lake Mead. We met Bob & Pam and fam down there Thursday night/Friday morning. We didn't get in until after 2am, and even though the hotel was less than desirable ($25 a night, what did I expect) we didn't care.

The weather couldn't have been more perfect Friday. High 80's, not a breath of wind (unusual for Lake Mead) water temperature about 74, and glass almost all day. We all skied our guts out! We also got some surfing in, and even got Pam (who's bday was Friday) up, after a few failed attempts. Don't worry though, once she got up, she was a pro!

Saturday was the exact opposite of Friday, we woke up to wind, ate breakfast in the wind, unloaded the boat in the wind, surfed in the wind, got yelled at by a wake boarder for tubing in the CRAPPIEST water possible. WTH? Got to witness SpeedoFest 2009, pictures coming, and lots of other mayhem in the wind. However, the best part of the day was not only was it my bday, but I loaded the boat, in the wind, PERFECTLY. Yes, my friends, Perfect. It was a little bday luck I am sure. :)

After we had enough wind we headed to the Johnson's, and I was greeted by lots of hugs and Gracie saying. "Mimi, panties", pulling up her shirt to show me her new panties. I love this little girl!!

Josh and Dave headed to the Priesthood Session, I got showered, played with kids, and then it was off to Cheesecake Factory with my two dates, and in Jill's "bling-bling" ride. Thanks to the Nav, we found Summerlin just fine. Thanks, Jill.

After dinner, we stayed up talking almost all night. In fact, the boys couldn't take it, so they were asleep long before our conversation ended. I love those good, long talks with Jill and Aaron. They always make things seem so much easier.

We arrived home Sunday, and were sad to find the weather here much colder than when we left. This is always such a hard time of year.....only a few more boating trips left.

Thanks again to all those who wished me Birthday wishes. I had a wonderful PROLONGED bday, and it was fantastic! I have a few pictures coming that will show the fruits of my labor and my bday present.... Stay tuned.
