Last week it was my 23rd birthday. I always thought that sounded so old. Especially because next year I will be 24 and in my head the only 24 year old that comes to mind is my brother Rangi.
*TANGENT: For some reason he will forever seem 24 to me. This may be due to the fact that he DOESN'T age, or maybe because he has been mistaken as my YOUNGER brother, or maybe because he can do anything a 17 year old olympian could do. *END OF TANGENT.
But for some reason I don't feel any older, just better. This might seem narcissistic but it was such a grand birthday I have to blog it for my memory's sake. First off, anyone who knows me will know that I LOVE my birthday. I will milk it for all it's worth. Roxanne and Danny have got to be SO excited for this Tuesday to roll around because I cant say, "Come on, pleeeeease? It's my birthday month!" I know they are thinking June cant come fast enough!
Well this year my birthday was on a Saturday and I was checking the forecast literally a month before my birthday. The last 3!!! years it has RAINED on my birthday. All I want on my birthday is to soak up the SUN after the stupid Utah winter. Is that too much to ask? The forecast said it would be 74 degrees and Sunny. I have this weird inkling to always want to fish on my birthday? I know Im quirky. So it was decided we would go fishing.... Oh and maybe have a fish fry? ...And of course go yard sale-ing because its a Saturday, and maybe shopping?... Or going out to breakfast? ....And of course we have to end the night with dancing? As you can see, I get way too excited and want to try and squeeze EVERYTHING I can into one day. Well as the big day approached the weatherman had bad news for me. Isolated thunderstorms and a high of 50! A HIGH of 50? Also Danny had not been able to get off of work!!!
I was devastated.
No fishing. No yard sales. No Danny. No Sun.
So the morning of my birthday rolls around and of course my parents are the first to call to wish me Happy Birthday. They asked if they could bring me my present down to my house. So they came down and brought me a card with money and SEE'S. Is there a better way to start out your birthday than with a box of See's? I submit that there is not. Then my dad told me he had found a yard sale that was completely covered by tents in PG so we headed over to it. It was actually a promising yard sale despite the 40 degree weather! Next thing ya know it, Danny is calling me and telling me that his boss said he could go home because it was my birthday, yay!! So Danny comes home and gives me the sweetest presents. Some really nice new sunglasses and the most beautiful painting! I am so spoiled:)
I look retarded in this photo, but check out the sweet shades Danny gave me! Cute huh? They are polarized, I love them! For my wussy blue eyes, these are a must.
The next activity was shopping!!! Rox, Danny, and I went shopping to all my favorite stores. Also, the Sun came out and it actually turned out to be a beautiful day:) My dad said to pick somewhere to go out to lunch and the whole fam would come meet and so naturally I chose Chuck-a-Rama of course. So all my friends and family met up and ate at my favorite place! My friend Dustin gave me a fishing pole since I have always wanted to go fishing on my birthday, I cant wait to use! And Brad gave me Portugal. Then Man concert tickets!!!! Whoot Whoot! I am SO excited about those:) After lunch we went shopping some more (yes Im married to a man of great patience) and started looking for matching ghetto fab outfits because we were going dancing that night!!! Rox and I found some awesome outfits on another dollar rack at Wal-Mart. So later that night Rangi called me and wished me Happy Birthday and told me to check his blog. Guess who got a birthday blog dedicated to them!? This girl! It was awesome, it had the birthday raps his class did for me, and I love to admit I can sing word for word all of their raps! Thanks Rang! So later that night the Los Gs get all dressed to impress in their most blingin attire and got kinky in da club! We bought a bunch of glow sticks and fake tattoos for everyone. I ended the night drinking a giant MTN. Dew. What a sweet night!
Some of my friends that came dancing, sorry I didn't get a pic with everyone. But thanks everyone who came, It was SO fun!!! I even had a Beyonce song dedicated to me, what a great birthday! :)
Smart Sistas at the Cluuuub.
The next day Rick and Cher made me a big birthday dinner that was BOMB. Rocky and Sarah even let me pick the bread they brought! It was SO good.
Cher made the most delicious German Chocolate cake ever. It was by far the best cake I have ever tasted and probably the best thing I have ever put in my mouth. Thanks Cher!
In the Smart family, when it is your birthday, you get to pick whatever meal you want.
I picked tinfoils:) Ricker makes a mean tinfoil.
This is a pic of the handsome Danny Man cooking them.
Ricker and Cher Thanks so much for all your hard work making my birthday so much fun! They put on the best dinner, it was amazing! Thanks for all the birthday wishes and efforts of everyone, it really was the best birthday ever. I have theeee best friends and family, they all made me feel so loved on my bday!! Love you all!
Thanks for Spoiling me Rotten:)
