this, that and the other!

my birthday was last week and i wanted to share a few pics of the exciting day! i have more, just haven't downloaded them to the computer yet! :)

first of all... the end of september i came to work and my office was totally decked out! streamers, balloons, birthday banners and a cool countdown chain!

as you all know i totally love my birthday! so the decorations were awesome!!

as i was leaving work the day before my birthday i came out to my car... looking like this...

i just have to say! i loved it!! :)

the tires were "spotted"

balloons tied to my side mirrors

writing all over every window!

the front said "happy birthday" - but it was done backwards so i could read it while i was driving!
the back window said "honk its my birthday" fun!

there was also writing on my car paint too- that is the only thing i was a little worried about... wasn't sure how it would effect my paint.

there were paper confetti sprinkles all over the car.. windshield, back window... everywhere!

and to top it all off... it was shrink wrapped too! :) crazy! but fun!

i have more to share... but it will have to wait for another day! :)

the wonderful visit!!

we had such an amazing time last weekend!
my uncle steve and aunt paula were in utah!! they live in indiana and we hadn't seen them in several years!
they were here for a librarian conference (they both are librarians) in slc and took some time to see us too!
friday steve came up and spent the day with us! we visited for a bit and then made picnic lunches and took them up the canyon. the leaves were very pretty so it was a nice day for a drive. on the way back we stopped at aggie ice cream for a little treat! delish!!
we then headed over to cox honey to check out what cool stuff they have. steve is a bee keeper and since he was visiting the "beehive" state, this was a must! :)
after checking out the yummy honey we went home to visit some more. we pulled out lots of pics and chatted about the haps in each others lives. it was a fabulous afternoon!
for dinner we decided to go to the beehive grill. super good food and a great atsmosphere!
we had a fun day! it was so great to see him!
sunday morning steve flew home but paula stayed for the closing lecture. after it ended mom and i picked her up and we went to lunch at sego lily cafe in bountiful- very cool place. paula is an amazing woman and it was wonderful to be able to just sit and chat with her for a few hours before she needed to get to the airport.
i sure love these 2 people! they are cream of the crop in my book! :)
