Happy Birthday to Me!

Well today I am officially another year older. I feel like life is passing by me so fast! It just goes to show that we really do need to take the time and enjoy our lives in the present and stop living in the future so much because we'll never get these days back. I've been trying to make that a goal for myself, but it can be hard to enforce sometimes. Well I made the most of my day today! First I went and got my toes done. I figured that I deserved a little TLC since I'm going to be having this baby soon. Plus, I told Brannon that having nice toes would make me feel pretty in the hopsital;) Unfortunately, my toes look more like bear claws now. I didn't think they would come out looking so thick and long! My mom says I'll have to get my shoes a size bigger for them to fit. I think I'll take a file to these babies tomorrow to see I can tame them a bit. I also got my hair done today too. I went back to being a brunette and feel much more comfortable, only my brunette is a lot more red. The lady who did it told me "Now the red in this color will be a bit vibrant, but it'll fade." The red is very vibrant, so I had her dye my eyebrows too so that I wouldn't look that fake. Needless to say, I am not posting any pics of my hair for a couple of weeks. I'm going to give it time to fade. My husband made my day when I received a dozen gerber daisies this morning at my door. They are beautiful. I've always said that if we are reincarnated someday that I would come back as a gerber daisy. They are the smile of my soul:) Bran treated me to dinner tonight, courtesy of Red Robin, and then we stopped by the mall and had the best cake ever! If you're ever at Fashion Place Mall go to the food court to The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and ask them for frozen cheesecake on a stick. They dip it in their best ever chocolate and it is the best cheesecake ever! It was the perfect ending to a perfect day!

I wanted to call you so bad yesterday!! But my day was literally heck!! I had piano lessons, the ward harvest dinner, then put Cambri to bed, cut Deysha's bangs and by the time that was done, it was soooo late, so I didn't dare wake you up. But I will call you today! Happy birthday!! I'm sure your hair looks great hun! You can pull anything off! Bran is such a sweetie! Can't wait to see you guys! I should have been as smart as you to go get my toes done, I had Cole paint my toes and it was SCARY!! Needless to say, he tried and that was cute. But I had Rita redo them! Hope you had a great rest of your birthday! I'll talk to you later today! Hope you don't care that I wait and give you your b-day present until you come down for deer hunt, I can't order it yet because it's not available until the 16th of this month, but I know you will love it so I'm waiting! hope you don't care!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! It sounds like you had a really great day! I think your toes look really cute. You're just not used to them yet. You need to post pictures of your hair soon or you'll forget, and we all want to see them.
P.S. Cheesecake on a stick... YUM!
