birthday blast...

first off i want to thank everyone for all the bday wishes, emails, messages, texts, phone calls, and all the love i got on my birthday. you seriously made me feel so special. and we all know i love feeling special. so THANK YOU!!!

i'm sure you're wondering what we were up to and what surprise ry pulled off this time. well, ryan flew back into salt lake on friday after being in indiana recruiting for a few days. so i drove down with our friends jeff & kapri to meet up with him. we had a husband/wife pinnacle meeting that night that we were heading to. i really just wanted to go because they always hand out super cute bags. this year we got this awesome ogio bag...



i freakin love it!!! the great benefits of being a pinnacle wife :)

anyway, we met up with ry at the hotel we were staying at for the night ~ hyatt summerfield in sandy. it's seriously a gorgeous hotel. we had a huge 2 bedroom suite with jeff & kapri. we all checked in and headed up to our room. when i walked into the room, i found this in one of the bedrooms...

ry snuck up earlier and did a lil decorating. there were rose petals everywhere, some bubbly, chocolate, tic tacs and a princess bear. it was so sweet!! after checking out the p.i.m.p room we headed to the pinnacle dinner.

after dinner, we went to pick up a dairy queen bday cake. it was my only 1 true desire this year for my bday. everyone at DQ sang happy bday to me and ry and kapri hoisted me up on their shoulders for a lil bday yee-haw!! i wish we had pics. it was just so silly.




we went back to the hotel and ate some cake with thayne & maryanne & cache. i had to post this pic of them cuz i just think it's so cute!


when they left, we went for a dip in the pool {ya it was outdoors and 80 degrees. it was amazing!}. after a toast to me, the bday girl, and some late night sillyness and chatter, we headed to bed.

ya, we all look REALLY creepy



on saturday i came home to this beautiful bouquet of flowers from ry's family {THANK YOU}. can i just tell you how much i LOVE real-true-live-breathing flowers and how great it's been to have so many around the house. i love it!!!

needless to say, i had an amazing weekend.
and because we had so much fun...we're heading to vegas with jeff & kapri to celebrate valentine's/president's day/kapri's bday. we just can't get enough of each other :)

{if you were thinking i looked a lil different in the above photos, you're right! i forgot to wear mascara. mascara is essential. how in the world do you forget it??}
