Birthday Fun

So my birthday was this last weekend and I got to spend the weekend with Mike. We had a lot of fun, despite his getting pink eye on Saturday. It started on Friday when I got to work, and the girls here had decorated my office (it was so totally cute) and had all gotten me gifts and flowers (lots and lots of flowers) - it was so nice of everyone. Then my boss bought the office lunch and they had a cake and we had our own little party, it was quite fun if I do say so myself. I am so lucky to work with such great people.

Friday night Mike and I went out to dinner and a movie with one of his coworkers and his fiance. We don't go on many double dates, but I think we both agreed that we very much enjoyed it and it is something we would love to do again. The boys let the girls pick the movie, so we decided on 17 Again :) If you have not seen this movie, it actually is quite entertaining. We loved it of course, and don't let the boys fool you - they loved it too! Mike woke up on Saturday morning with pink eye, so he pretty much stayed home all day. I did hang out with him at his house for most of the morning and early afternoon, then went to my brothers Improv competition (which they did so dang awesome) and then went back and we had dinner together so that was fun.

Sunday was great. Mike made it pretty special for me, and we had a great time together. Sunday didn't work to celebrate with my family because we all had separate things going on, so we decided to get together another day this week. So first I woke up and spent some time with my sister and Chandler. I opened some presents from them, and from my parents (thanks so much!) and then went over to Mikes house. That evening we took a drive to the temple to watch some videos and then walked the grounds and just talked. It was very enjoyable until a bird just about attacked Mike (there were seriously birds everywhere) and we both kinda freaked out a little so we decided to head back after that. We drove around some more and then went and had dinner with Mikes family. After dinner they brought out a cake that his mom had made (so yummy!) and some presents for me. It was so nice of everyone! It was determined that I am now a whole box of candles worth old lol.

I had a great time hanging out with Mikes family that evening. They are all so good to me! I was even able to convince everyone to play some Rock Band with me! Here are a few more pictures from Sunday...

Mikes younger sister Sara and I. She is graduating today Woo-Hoo!! She made me the sweetest card with the sweetest story in it, I sware it brought Mike to tears :)

This is Mikes other younger sister Kellie and his mom. Okay, so on Monday morning while I was at Mikes house his mom was washing her car. When we left that afternoon I walked outside and there was a big red bow on my car and she had washed my car for me too! I couldn't believe it. I felt so bad because it was soo dirty, lol. It was so sweet of her. She said she just wanted to do that for me for my birthday. I still can't believe it.

Look at this beautiful necklace. For my birthday Mike got this necklace for me. He is so good at listening and picking up on little things, because I mentioned to him that I loved this necklace, and what-do-you-know... he got it for me for my birthday! He also got tickets for us to go see the Fray with Jacks Mannaquin in July - I am so excited for that too!! Thanks babe!

Here's Mike and his sisters jammin to Rock Band. I had such a great time playing with them. Thanks for playing with me guys :)

Thank you to everyone who text, called, (or didn't call) that thought of me on my birthday. It was a great one, and I am now 1 year older making me 24. Nice.
