unsolicited product endorsement

i know you've just been waiting to hear about this.

i turned twenty-four on saturday.

it was just a wonderful, low key day. filled with breakfast at kneaders, my babies' (we've established that this refers to my nieces and nephews, right?) soccer game, a 20 minute laying out attempt before the sky (literally) rained on my parade, lunch, target, a precious little wedding reception and fast 5. you may have noticed that i am pretty much obsessed with my birthday. i just think that it is really cool that we celebrate the days that we come into the world. it doesn't have to be a big, grandiose celebration. just the acknowledgement and going out of your way to make someone feel special on their day is what matters to me. and i certainly felt special on my day. so thank you to everyone that contributed!

now let me tell you about my life as a 24 year old. i had my health screening at work today for my insurance premium discount and i learned that i am shorter (wha???) and fatter than i was at 23. one inch shorter and 6 pounds heavier to be exact. really? isn't it a little early for that. i certainly hope this doesn't mean that i need to start working out because let's just be honest. i get winded walking up the stairs... but at least i have the face and acne of a 17 year old, right? right???

but seriously. other than this health screening - which i think was bogus because i have been 5'5" for a while now and i weighed myself this morning at home and it was the same as what i weighed this time last year - i have high hopes for my 24th year of life. seems to be going pretty well so far.

and let's just talk about fast 5 for a quick second. it was definitely enjoyable and probably the best one they've made so far, but i could have used a little less vin and a lot more paul. good thing they're working on a 6th movie!

sisters, sisters

all of my sisters were in town last weekend (by "in town" i mean utah, brooke and i both live here) and we had a grand old time. eryn flew out from new york for her friend, alexis' wedding on saturday and shea decided to fly out from colorado to make it an official sisters weekend.
one of the benefits of the incredibly slow shutter speed on my iphone camera is that when a person moves their arm in front of another person it makes it look like the stationary person is wearing a half shirt.
twins. grandpa glade is seriously the cutest.
i love my family.

post script: i do have a brother, he is just serving a mission for our church. otherwise we would have had invited him to our sister (sibling) weekend.

post post script: i know that this was probably an overload of iphone app edited photos, but trust me. my iphone doesn't take the best pictures and the apps definitely make the pictures look better. AND MY 24TH BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW!!! is that enough reminders?

don't mind if i do

this is what my apartment complex looked like at 6 am saturday morning. so i decided to just take a little weekend trip to vegas to visit the dodsons and some sunshine.
gross, right? bleh.

this is what i like to call sweet perfection.
the dodsons. i like to take credit for their love.

it was so fun to catch up and spend some time in the sun. i just wish that my nemesis, the wind, would have subsided so i could have gotten a tan and that i could have stayed longer, 2 days just isn't very mich time for a vacation.

my first trip to vegas was when we took a little jaunt down our junior year (3 1/2 years ago... yikes) for the byu vs. unlv football game. such a precious little time in our lives.
