Happy Birthday Brad

Tomorrow is my honey's birthday. I'm wanted to wish him a happy birthday and tell him how thankful I am to have him in my life. I sure don't know where I would be without him.


There are so many reasons why I ♥ him.....here are some of my favorite.

1. He is a worthy priesthood holder & is able to take me to the temple often
2. The amazing example he is to me
3. The way he looks at me and still gives me butterflies
4. The cute little boy smile he gets on his face when something makes him happy (usually BYU football, when they are winning :) )
5. The way he takes care of me and assure him that everything is going to be okay, when I'm pretty sure they are not
6. The cute little love notes he leaves me
7. He is a fabulous chef & grill master
8. His ♥ for knowledge & learning and always wanting to make himself better
9. His hard work & dedication for everything he does
10 A. The way he lives his life through the gospel
10 B. Most of all for being there for me all the time, for being a great shoulder to cry on & a strong rock to reply on.


I'm so glad I married him. I'm also thankful for Vaughn & Elaine for raising an amazing man, for teaching him what is right.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRADFORD! I LOVE YOU

Weekend for Birthday Fun

We just got back from an fun early birthday weekend in Salt Lake. We were there from Friday morning to Sunday evening.


Friday, when we got into Salt Lake, we went to Joe Morley's with some friends to eat lunch. It was delicious BBQ. One of my best friends, Miranda & her husband Mano & daughter Sami, flew in from Hawaii to visit her parents in Sandy and we were able to spend some time with them. After lunch, the girls went to go get "pedicures". Brad's birthday is on the 12th and I wanted to do something fun for it. I got us a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Sandy, UT. The girls went with me to help decorate the room while Brad went to get a haircut. I got him this yummy fruit arrangement from Edible Arrangements. It was so good. It came in a football. I also made him a BYU blanket for the game to help keep us warm. Thanks Deanna for all your help...I couldn't have done it without you :)


That night, we went to the BYU vs Utah State football game in Provo. We went with Miranda & Mano to the game. It was a great game and they won. It wasn't as cold as I thought it would be. It had snowed earlier in the week so I was really afraid we were going to freeze.

Saturday we went and ate lunch with some friends. We went to Tucanos in Provo Canyon.



It was delicious as always....thanks Felt's.

After lunch, Brad went with his dad shopping and I went with his mom & sister's shopping at Ikea. It was a very successful trip. Elaine (Brad's mom) bought us a dinning set for his birthday & an early Christmas present from there. So I bought some chair cushions & a nice rug to go in our kitchen.

It is an awesome table that has two leaves that pull out so you can have it small or big. It's great. We have some other tables & a bookshelf from Ikea and now they all match. I bought some red cushions to go with. They look really good, if I can say that.

Thanks again Vaughn & Elaine :)

That night we went to Mapleton, to his Grandpa's house. Brad and him have the same birthday and they are turning opposites this year. Grandpa will be 92 & Brad will be 29. We had delicious pumpkin pie & pumpkin dessert.

Sunday, we had breakfast with some good friends, watched the first session of Sunday morning conference and drove home.

A big thank you also goes to my parents & Lisa for watching Chena for us while we play. She loves it there!

It was a such a great weekend...Thanks to all that made it memorable. Enjoy some random pictures from the weekend.
