"She's a Natural Disaster"

Today, as Cami so awesomely reminded me today, I became an official menace to society seeing that I am 25 and unmarried. When i was born, way back in 1984, there was a tornado in Wisconsin that destroyed an entire town in the state. Well as a result, when I was little my mom called me her little tornado. If you remember from previous blog posts, last year on my birthday the entire state was in a state of flooding, including having dams burst and entire lakes drained. Well this year, was no exception to the natural disaster pattern, as there were tornado warnings (but no actual touch-downs), lots of rain and thunder and lighting, and some hail. As a result, I've had the Plain White T's song "Natural Disaster" in my head all day, which is where the title of this post comes from.

I had an amazing birthday and got to hang out with my 3 favorite people. My mom surprised me this morning and said she took the day off so we can go shopping (our favorite past time) and what not. We went to the Cheesecake factory for lunch, and after lunch we went and returned a lot of stuff that has been waiting to be taken back and bought birthday presents for everyone else who has birthdays this week (since my birthday is the first out of 5). Then for dinner my parents, Brian, and I went to the Texas Roadhouse. It was super yummy and I love how unawkward it is (at least for me haha Brian might say otherwise) when it is my parents and Brian and I. We then had cake and ice cream at my house, and it was the same exact cake I had last year, just a different color. Haha what can I say, I know what I like!

I hadn't really known what I wanted for my birthday, but I just assumed it was going to be my tickets to Vegas in October, since my mom told me she'd buy them for me as my birthday present. Well I also was surprise with a new camera! My last camera was stolen by a former roommate and/or one of her friends, and so I was excited to get a new one. It's a coolpix camera that is seen in the commercials with Ashton Kutcher where it has a touch screen and stuff. I love it, and I also got some switchflop straps, and some lottery tickets (I won 13 bucks, woo hoo!) from my parents. Brian's parents gave me a gift card to Maggie Moo's ice cream shop and some earrings, and Brian, despite thinking they're creepy, gave me a Willow Tree statue :) We decided not to do the whole major gift thing and save our money seeing as our birthdays are so close together and we're going to Vegas in the fall. I'd much rather see a show or have extra gambling money to win big with ha ha. I'm such a lucky girl and without further ado, here are some cute pictures I took with my new camera (oh, disclaimer, I had spent tons of time on my hair this morning but the rain kind of ruined it so thats why I look like a disheveled homeless person):

Here are my cute parents at the restaurant, notice my moms awesome eye patch. She rocks :)

Here is Brian and I at the restaurant:

Looks like you had a great birthday! I think I will be able to see you when you come visit, even if we have moved by then. We just bought another car, and I will probably want some excuses to visit Southern Utah anyway. It will be so fun to see you and meet this Brian guy! :)
