July 3, 2010. I turn 24 years old! To celebrate I had the whole day planned out. Mike and I and his mom and dad went to an early morning breakfast at Johanna's Kitchen. So delicious. Then we headed to Brighton Ski Resort to do a little hiking. We hiked to three lakes: Lake Mary, Lake Martha and Lake Catherine. I haven't been hiking in years and it was fun to spend some time in the beautiful mountains.  Oklahoma should get some mountains. Its missing out. Plus I found $5 in cash on the hike. Happy Birthday to me!! Then homeward to shower and put on our matching shirts (cuz I love matching Mike and its my birthday so I get to do what I want). Then my folks took us to Costco (cuz its my birthday tradition) to buy some treats and eat some yummy pizza for lunch. Nothing is better than Costco pizza. Then homebound again to get some R&R before the parade with the fam. The parade was, of course, a ton of fun. Then my parents took us out for Mexican. I love Mexican. Mike and I had full intentions of watching fireworks, but we were just wiped out so we decided against it and instead went home and fell asleep on the couch watching a movie. I love birthdays.

On Sunday, we had my birthday dinner at my parents house and it couldn't have been better. Family and food....and Texas Sheet Cake!! And I even got to blow out 24 candles. Everyone kept reminding me that this is the last year that I only have to buy one package of candles. Yeah, yeah, so I am getting kind of old. But I love blowing out candles on my cake. I am childlike, I know.

Yesterday neither of us had work, so it was a pretty chill day. Which sometimes is just what is needed. I had a high school friend get married last night so we spent the evening in Park City, which was beautiful. It was a beautiful wedding and I am very happy for her.
