we started the morning our right- luke woke me up at 5:30 and we made our way to v-land for a surf- birthday girl gets to choose the surf spot! of course it was really fun, well until 100 other guys were out, but it was fun. and i am embarrassed to admit that velzy has never even been to v-land (velzyland), sort of pathetic. it's a great little beach and a perfect wave, but the crowds keep us from going there all the time.
anyways back to my day. came home to ivy sleeping and velzy hangin with grandma and they had made me a card. so sweet. velzy was supposed to be sweet all day because it was my birthday, but instead she was super annoying allllll day. later we went up to piddleys to surf again and play with the girls at the beach. on the way home we stoped at ted's for some carrot cake and a pumpkin haupia pie. which fully satisfied my birthday cake needs, to say the least.
we came home and ivy and luke napped while velzy and i didn't get along- two tired stubborn girls. i think we are friends now though.
we grabbed some dinner at subway and taco bell because we are very gourmet around here- and had a little picnic. after dinner luke and i went to the temple to do sealings with our ward. which is always lovely. it was actually rather entertaining watching old hawaiians try to pronounce russian names. super funny, in a temple spiritual way of course.
we came home to the girls getting ready for bed with grandma and got them in bed. they were in bed but not asleep when i bailed and went to watch a movie and have girl talk with echo, steph, melissa and liko. and yes echo, that was icing on the cake. then i retuned home completely tuckered out and fell asleep in .2 seconds. it was a good day.
and just for fun since i am putting of writing a talk for sunday here are 26 random things about me:
1. i can memorize a song after listening to it 2 or 3 times.2. i have no sugar overload level, i could eat candy all day and be perfectly fine.3. i could also eat a whole carton of ice cream in one sitting, easy.3. i am allergic to peanuts.4. i use aloe for lotion.5. i have a short temper when it comes to whinnying. . 6. multiple vitamins make me want to throw up, i think i need to take the kids gummy bear ones .7. if i don't exercise i get restless leg syndrome and i can't fall asleep. 8. for some odd reason, old men love me. 9. i am a nature nerd. 10. i try to go out of my way to do something nice for someone everyday, because warm fuzzies feel good. 11. i have "billings ribs" which means they are really big. 12. i have the coolest grandmas in the world. 13. i have a smoothie for breakfast everyday. 14. i spend way too much time on the computer. 15. i am not a slob, but i don't mind if my house is a little messy. 16. luke does the dishes for me every night, and we don't have a dishwasher. he is amazing. 17. my second and third toes are "webbed," just half way. 18. when i was in high school a bunch of us would break into the mission viejo nadadores pool and jump off the high dive in the middle of the night, naked. 19. did i mention i have to give a talk on sunday and am putting off writing it, hence this ridiculous list. 20. i always root for the underdog. 21. since becoming a mom, i cry at the weirdest things- like country songs. 22. the song "you can have whatever you like" has been stuck in my head since i hung out with my brothers and sister a month ago. 23. i have the worlds coolest brothers and sister. 24. i am way more scared of eels than sharks. 25. i almost think it would be cool to have 4 little girls, almost .26. i can't think of anything else.
there you have it. guess i should get to that talk...
