it just gets better every year


today was/is my birthday...i have to say that my husband, brother, and dad were awesome today!!
first of all, last night brandon came home with 3 pairs of jeffrey campbell shoes for me to choose from . HELLO. jeffrey campbells? i know. LOVE. love. LOVE MY HUSBAND! of course, me being ME, i chose the red mary jane style. and he also picked up flowers AND some really cute housewares for me. TOTALLY amazing husband! then we went to dinner at europa in proctor. LOVE. the atmosphere is romantic and quaint and you can always get right in. oh, and the food pretty much rocks. awesome!

then today my brother and sis-in-law had a birthday breakfast for me! it was so sweet. especially since brandon had to be at church this morning. it totally MADE my morning. thanks guys!!

oh, and let's not forget my birthday DINNER tonight at my parents' house. my mom is out of town but my dad did NOT let my birthday pass by without a HUGE celebration. and by huge...i mean THE FOOD. crab legs anyone? KING CRAB?? ah yeah! oh, and not one but two cake studio cakes. that's right. TWO. oh my gosh. soooo good!!



macrae is so excited to start dinner! (we had to take his clothes since we didn't have any of those bibs they give you at red lobster)








the man who made it all happen (and by "it all" i mean about 25 pounds of king crab)
















here we all are...before the crab eating began.











i'm not the type to be embarrassed about my age. i'm 33. is that OLD? oh well. it happens. happy birthday to ME.

Thanks for stopping by my neglected blog yesterday. I can hardly catch up on my sleep lately, much less my blog. Excuses, excuses, right? We're all fine. Nothing exciting to report.

But hey--I took a peek at those shoes and they are TO DIE FOR! So adorable. Good job, Brandon! And happy late birthday to you!

First of all, I love your new title pic! (I looooove him!) And I think he thinks it;s his bday- trying to get the cake, and that smile in his high chair like he is on top of the world!

BTW- BP called me for advice and I said J> CAMPBELL SHOES ONLY and DON'T YOU FORGET IT! So sisters come in handy on b-days too even when they live far away!! SO sad I missed the "roast" and I see you got the special plate YAY!

So here is my roast...
Anna you are my Best Friend in the whole world, (next to my hubs) I have always looked up to you and been in admiration of your many talents/skills/ and character. Thank you for showing me the ropes, and looking out for me in the younger School years & Provo as well. I couldn't have done it without you by my side. You are a strong and beautiful woman with so much presence, and zest for life! (oh and with gorgeous babies too!)
