I woke up at 6 am to go to work, and there were streamers and happy birthday signs all over the house. I wish i had gotten pictures because it was so cute. I was so tired the night before that i didn't even wake up when Casey got up and decorated the house for my birthday! i went to work as usual. I had planned a relaxing fun day for the kids so we had a pizza party and watched Bed Knobs and Broomsticks. The kids loved the movie and i enjoyed the easy day. I came home and got ready for dinner. Casey planned on taking me somewhere nice for my bday so he took me to Salt Creek. The food was SO good and thanks to my mom, we got an amazing dessert on the house. It was a very nice night.
May 30th: Disneyland!
June 4th-June 7th: VEGAS TRIP
Friday: I woke up early.... again... went into work for a little over an hour to finish decorating my room for summer camp. then, i got home and we got on the road for Vegas. We stopped at the outlets at State Line as usual and then got back on the road. We had planned on staying at the Encore for our trip. We went to check in but we got sent away because apparently, booking three months in advance means nothing and they overbooked the room so we got sent to the Four Seasons which is the top four floors of the Mandalay Bay. we were kinda bummed but hey, its the Four Seasons. It was very nice. Friday night we wandered around the casino where i got to gamble for the first time, ate at the Mandalay Bay Buffet, and then wandered around some more.
Saturday, we slept in (finally), went to the pools. That was so great. Aside from the ten pools that the Mandalay Bay has, The four seasons has their own private pool exclusively for their guests. They run it like a restaurant. They seat you in your own private lounge and come by with cold towels and frozen melon balls, fresh lemon water and stuff. it was so nice! After we were done at the pool, we got ready for the BIG NIGHT! we had dinner reservations and tickets to a show. We drove over to the Encore and Wynn hotels where we had the best dinner of my life!
It's called "Le Reve" which means The Dream, in french. it was such an amazing performance. there's a pool as the stage and people come out of the pool, dive into the pool, fall from the ceiling... it was amazing! The best way for me to describe it is an Aquatic, Acrobatic, Theatrical performance. I would totally see it again. We had amazing seats, 8th row (the best one because you are perfectly eye level with MOST of the action). i couldn't take pictures during the show but if i were you, i would look it up! the pictures i do have is how they set the stage as everyone got their seats. OH and an added bonus, somehow we got free popcorn. The people in front of us as we were presenting our tickets at the door gave up some free popcorn passes and we got them.
After the show was done, we walked around for a bit before driving back to the Four Seasons for our last night there before coming back to the Encore for one night.

Between my hectic work schedule, i was able to have some fun too.
On Thursday, after work, i went out with Tiffany. We went to Hollywood, walked around, enjoyed the sights, went to a Wax Museum i cannot spell or pronounce (the big famous one... Madam T...) ate dinner at hooters and headed home. So much fun with such a great friend!
Friday night casey and i saw The Last Song (not amazing, but more acurate than most movies based on books - as usual, the book is MUCH better)
Saturday morning, Casey and myself met up with his parents and we went to "A Place to Shoot" and shot off some handguns. it was SO much fun! I shot a 44 Magnum, 9 mm glock, 45 mm glock and a 40. I cannot wait to get my own gun this year for my birthday gift!
Not too long now til my birthday trip to vegas! so much to look forward to!

It was an amazing anniversary!
My dad and Whitney came into town this last friday. We had family pictures planned for Sunday and Monday was Whitney's 24th birthday.
During the show, Julie got pulled onto the stage to be apart of an act. Julie was asked to think of an article of clothing and the dog would go backstage and grab it. watch the video to see how it went.
:) SO like the title of the blog said... a lot can happen in a year:
Casey and I had our first anniversary
Garrett and Julie had their first anniversary of dating AND got engaged.
Whitney had a birthday and got to visit us
Time flies and life changes... the changes are blessings that i thank the lord for everyday.
until next time... ;)

I am quite a stickler when it comes to service and i am kinda particular when it comes to my food.
Saturday night, casey took me out to a nice dinner at a place we had never been before. We have frequently talked about how i should write Restaurant Reviews on where i eat and what i think.
So here it goes (its not a formal review that i would send in to a newspaper... its a rough review)
The atmosphere was very unique. Im used to going to a cookie cutter restaurant with the dim lighting and themed music and every inch of space being used for something. however, this little nugget hidden in the middle of nowhere, is open, spacious, with random collectibles displayed. You walk in the door and see the kitchen! (pleasent view of the kitchen) There is sawdust on the floor and mismatched lighting fixtures on the celieing... But it SO works. I think there was music, but it was a quiet place with the most of the noise being the quiet, polite, conversations going on around us. Casey and i were the youngest couple there and most of the servers seemed to know most of the people there. The service showed that. I noticed the server was very busy but still gave each table individual attention. She took multiple requests from multiple tables at a time and then fufulled those requests (mostly) in a timely manner.
The food was amazing! we both got the small fillet with the stuffed baked potato. The potato was the best part of the whole meal. i was torn. I would definitely go back and order the same exact thing! I recommend Backwoods to everyone. Its a SCV classic.
Next time i go to a good/new restaraunt ill let y'all know! :)

The Time Traveller's Wife (not a simple read but totally worth it)
A Child Called "It" -had to read for school. Easy to read, emotionally difficult.
