32.

So, I kind of missed posting about my birthday, but it happened anyways.

Now I'm 32.... lovely.

It's really hard coming to grips with the fact that I have basically been through 16 years twice.... That's 2 "sweet sixteens," when it seemed like I turned 16 yesterday and was at the Tillerman with my family and Uncle James and Aunt Lisa (celebrating James b-day too). OK I'm over it now.

I realized that for if not for any reason other than having a million people wish you a "Happy Birthday" and making you feel like you are really special.... everyone should be on facebook. That was rad.

For my birthday I went to institute and learned more about the amazing woman Emma Smith was and then was treated to lunch my Grandpa Jack and my Mom. I love Grandpa Jack, whenever I see him, I say "Hi Grandpa, how are you?" and every time he says "Better, now that you're here." Love it.

Chad took me to see "The Other Guys." (I love Mark Walburg, aka Marky Mark.) And then we went for out sushi with the family. We were a little concerned with taking Levi, but he was obsessed with the edamame, so it ended up being a great dinner. Mom treated me to cake and candles after, and we called it a day.... a great day.

The official tradition from Chad is a rose for every year, that began on my 18th birthday. Well, these are hard times people, and although it took a little hint from me, here is what I got and it will do. (no more hints though chad... time to get creative on your own!:)



The next nights, some of my best friends took me out for dinner and it was so nice to be with just the girls, no kids, no men. We gabbed about life and kids and about how we have to do this more.

And now I am 32. Last year, I was going to make a list of 31 things to do before I turn 32.... did that ever happen? Kinda. So now I am really going to do it.... 32 things to do before I turn 33 list, here I come.
