Okay so I am not really in the mood to be clever right now.... but I figured that I should blog about what has been happening the past few weeks.
Here is my adorable momma blowing out the candles for her big 2-0 birthday cake!
Cutest little 20 year old ever :)
So my dad was so cute and wanted to throw my mom a surprise party for her big day, he made a plan and recruited all of the kids and her friends to play along.
The original plan was that my dad would take her to dinner and then bring her home for a movie or something (they have a weekly date anyways so it wasn't anything too out of the ordinary)
All of the kids went over to decorate right after they left for dinner. We ordered some Barbacoa and got to work. It was Skylor and I's assignment to go and pick up dinner..... Barbs didnt realize that they had an order so we ended up waiting there for like 20 min.
We got home to 7 starving people and we immediately dug in.
My dad on the other hand, had apparently texted one of the boys that they would arrive back home in 15 min.... Knowing our dad he sometimes exaggerates the time. So we all figured that they wouldnt be there for at least 20 and he would give us a 1 min warning. All of the sudden we see Mom's head pop in the window.
Oh well! Still way fun to celebrate this cutie's brithday
Long (ish) story short...
I work at Nuskin and sometimes we get awesome perks..... like floor seats at the Jazz game.
Skylor was taking a test so he wasnt available so I decided to ask this guy!
Chad isnt super into sports but I think that he still had a good time (who wouldnt when you are literally sitting on the court).
We were able to eat their "gourmet" dinner before where I ran into my future father-in-law
(Skylor's gammy has floor seats that she distributes to her kids every once in a while)
I sat there and chatted with the Steeds for a bit while Chad was just awkwardly standing behind me.
Chad and I finally sit down and he asks me who that guy was.
Told him it was Skylor's dad....
"That guy is way to young to be his dad!"
Hopefully that makes Bob feel pretty good. :)
Onto the best part of last weekend...
SKYLOR'S 23 birthday!
My baby is so wise and mature now... ;)
We started his big day with a McDonalds breakfast (its our tradition to go to Mcdonalds on all birthdays since that was were we went our my birthday for our date. My b-day was on a friday so everything in west Jeru was closed for shabbat.... Except the golden arches!)
After Breakie we realized that I had been locked out of my apartment.
For some strange reason I was never given the correct key and the door leading to the garage was locked.... I have my theory but whatever!
So while we were killing time we went to the Paintball shop just down the road.
Skylor was in heaven. It was freaking adorable.
The rest of the day was filled with errands, cars, oil changes and panda express.
This week both of our families were out of town (mine in HI and Skylor's in NZ)
We were in charge of watching Skylor's little brothers, Robert and Braxton.
We all had a good time and I finally became besties with Dixie. WIN!
She freaking loves me now. She always brings me gifts whenever I come over :)
Now this weekend I was so exicted about!
First of all, conference was amazing. I really felt like there were so many talks about strengthening marriage and family. I just ate it up!
Secondly, Skylor and I attempted to take our engagements!
How do they look?
Okay okay. JK.
We had the fabulous Chelsie Clarke take our pics and I am dying to see them.
She is a genius with lighting.
So hopefully they turn out as good as I want!
But Skylor is so stinking cute that it would be hard for them not to turn out freakishly adorable.
Sunday I found this little treasure.
This was the first book the Skylor ever published and I just about died.
CUTEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.
I wish I could've known him his whole life because he must've been the cutest kid on the planet.
His book (and all of the other books) was about Dinosaurs.
Not much has changed :)
Here you'll read about all the good stuff. So mostly the random daily adventures of Skylor and myself.
