My Birthday celebrations started a few weeks ago when Mom & Dad surprised me with a visit to Arizona
to see
We spent the long weekend swimming, shopping, eating yummy food, talking, and having lots of fun!
While there, I opened my present from Derek, which, he wrapped by himself without scissors- talented, huh? I excitedly opened it to see a Webcam!
Now we can video chat with each other every few days, which will be a fun treat!
Thanks Derek! I love you!
On Saturday, my roommates and I headed out for some yummy dinner and a movie to celebrate.

Sunday, my actual Birthday, was full of fun, friends, and treats!
For a few highlights:
{Stephanie, Zack, Meghan, Me, Shawn}
I met Stephanie and Meghan last Fall and we've been friends ever since. I love these girls!
Zack and Shawn were Derek's roommates in the summer, so we had lots of fun together and it was fun to see them!
{Spencer, Katie, Whitney, Me, Kyler}
It was probably the most fun to see all these cute kids walk in the door! We all met our 1st semester at BYU-Idaho back in 2006. Spencer and Kyler were gone the past 2 years serving missions, and returned for a fun reunion! Thank you all for the Birthday wishes!
It's going to be a great year!
