Bad Idea

Last week me and Cory were going to a movie, but as we drove by Sportsmans Warehouse we saw a girl selling some of these:

It was a big mistake to stop and hold the little puppies. I want one soooo bad, but because I'm 21 years old, and live in my parents basement... I have to ask them permission for everything. They gave me a big fat hell no, claiming that they already got stuck with the kitty I wanted a decade ago. All I can think about lately is having my own dog. I would want someone else to train him, and clean up after him, and buy his food, but other than that, I would take care of him like my own child. Someday...

Birthday Spoils

Monday was the big 21 for me. I LOVE my birthday. I always have an awesome day, and this year was one of the best, partly because I got these:

And this:

Cory got me the Keens. I needed a new pair of good shoes that I could wear to work, and a pair of shoes that I could wear in the water. Now I have two in one! He says they are my "fishing" shoes, I say "work" shoes, but really I just wear them all the time no matter what I'm doing. He also got me (with the help of his cute mom and sister) some jewelry and Victoria's Secret lotion, body wash, and splash. I smell awesome right now.

My wonderful parents got me the heart rate monitor. I had been wanting one for months! I strap the band around my rib cage and it relays info to my watch to tell me what my heart rate is, calories I burned, laps, etc. I'm so excited about it! My dad also made me the best baby back ribs southeast Idaho has ever seen. He could really put Outback out of business if he wanted... and I have been eating the BEST icecream cake for breakfast all week!

It was such a great day. I didn't have to work so Cory's dad took us down the river in his boat, and even though I didn't catch ONE stupid fish, I loved sitting in the sun relaxing. I got to talk to almost all of my siblings, except for Charlie who doesn't always have access to electricity, and Jayne, who called a day late... I still love her though. The only thing that could have made the day better would be Lyndsey and Brian being around. It's the first birthday they missed since they got married, and I didn't realize how much I miss having them around. But only one more week and I'm off to Arizona to play with those suckers...

A few things to be proud of...

First of all, a shout out to my Mom for Mother's Day! I was the only child of hers to be home, so we partied all day long... my mom is one bad ass... and will kill me for swearing.

Second of all, congrats to Lauren Lufkin who just had her first baby! She is a beautiful little girl, and I can't wait to meet her.

Third of all, Cory's little sister Allie just finished dental assisting school! Now she is all grown up and a college graduate!

And last but not least, my sissy-in-law Jena just finished her nursing program! I bet my brother is so excited for her to get a job...

I'm just surrounded by all these hardworkers. I'm proud of you all!
