Spoiled Rotten

You guys.

Life just got super cool.


Mitchell surprised me big time for my birthday this year.  We have talked about getting one of these miracle machines for a loooong time.

Our family of three is now a family of four.  This blender holds a special place in our hearts.

We have made awesome vegan ice cream, numerous delicious smoothies, hummus, salsa, and soup.  We bought some peanuts over the weekend and I am beyond excited to make our own natural peanut butter.  Every morning I make myself a “Dr Oz Green Juice” smoothie. Man, I love this blender. 

Besides getting a blender for my birthday, I also received these happy faces …


My parents came home on Tuesday and Craig arrived Thursday.  It was like they had never left.   Quite the exciting week.  I really was spoiled this year.

My parents and Craig had never met Chipotle before. So we felt the need to introduce them.  They all liked each other and got along great.


Just look at those cute missionary dimples.  Welcome home Craig.


I have to admit, I was a little down in the dumps about turning 28.  I really don’t like getting older … but then Elder Packer chastised me this weekend and I have repented.   Bring on 29.

Ooh, your blender sounds cool. I love your haircut. What a great week, especially with your parents and brother coming home. Yeah, I'm sure Pres. Packer was talking to you-- 28 is ANCIENT. Happy birthday!

Wow, that sounds like one stellar birthday!! What more could a girl want? I have the not-so-secret wish to someday be the proud owner of such a worthy blender. Let me know if it can really grind grains into flour. (You know, in case I'm in a flour pinch and don't have time to exergrind out some wheat).
