{happy birthday to me}

My family often teases me about getting presents on other sibling's birthdays. Apparently when I was younger I seemed to always receive gifts on my other sibling's birthdays. I don't remember this but it is a general consensus in the family that it truly did happen.

Well this year I will admit that this statement, whether true or false, has become a reality.

On January 19th, aka Devanee's 18th birthday, I received this beauty...
{Canon S95}

My husband's birthday gift to me. What a nice husband.

& this...

from sister Karli & bf Chase. What a nice sister & bf.

Before you form a negative assumption about this selfish indulgence..
Let me tell you - I have been searching EVERYWHERE for this camera..
It was out of stock in EVERY store in Utah.
SO I was anxious to get my hands on the first one I could find.
This camera was the last one left at Pictureline & I barely snagged it in the nick of time..

POPULAR much?

As it should be.

I love you Canon S95, you make me happy about throwing my Samsung at the wall.

Devanee's 18th Birthday

So yesterday was my littlest sister Devanee's 18th birthday! It made me feel old because I swear I just turned 18. It was a busy day for most of us running around doing things in honor of Dev's bday. Karli & I made a huge sign to put on the garage of my parents home (sorry forgot to take a pic) then we went to Davis High & found her car with the help of her boyfriend Jake. We decorated it & filled it with balloons!

Later that night we had a homemade meal, Devanee's choice, of Chicken Cordon Bleu, salad & carrots. It was DELICIOUS!
Karli & my mom were the master chefs for the evening. I made the carrots.

Only one sibling left to turn 18 & officially be an adult. Crazy how fast life seems to fly by..



I'll leave you with this video of Roxi from last night :)

This is probably way lame to do this again, but it worked last time so I am willing to try again. But I promise I will try to make a habit of not just posting when I am trying to sell something!

Tyler won a brand new cell phone through another contest at work & so we are trying to sell it. It is the new LG Quantum which is one of the new Windows 7 phones from AT&T.
It is a slider, with a full QWERTY keyboard.
It has a 16 GB memory, a 5 megapixel camera & it also does video.

Asking $375 or best offer.

It really looks like an awesome phone so if you're interested or know someone who is, send us a text (801) 628-6261.

So that's where you come in, or your mom, aunt, cousin, friend - whoever!

We are selling this monster for $998 OBO.

It is a 55" LCD Vizio - still in original box - NEVER opened.
