11.11.11

I am not one to usually draw attention to myself and say "Hey, guess what! My birthday is coming up!" Because I think that seems a bit self-absorbed.  However, I believe it is warranted, this year. So ... guess what! My birthday is coming up! Why am I justified in gloating, this year? I'm so glad you asked.  It's only the most epic day of the century!! I mulled over how I should go about celebrating this day-of-all-days for quite some time. It is a very important decision. Party? Vacation? Disneyland? Buy presents for all of my blog-readers (I almost chose this option)? Finally, the decision was made.  What better way to celebrate my BEST BIRTHDAY EVER (caps added for emphasis) than to be in my favorite place in the world with some of my most favorite people in the world? There is no better way, I do declare.


I will be spending 11/11/11 in the beautiful state of Hawaii! It will be Kennedy's first time, and she couldn't be more excited (nor could I). Although, as of right now, she thinks it's just the two of us who will be going. As soon as she finds out her cousins will be there (my brother's little girls), she just might pee her pants.  If THAT isn't exciting enough, when she finds out her grandma is also going... wow.  There may be some fainting involved.  My fabulous aunt and her family will be there, as well- so it's going to be a huge party. Kauai won't know what hit them. But don't worry. It's just us awesome people.

So yeah, I just dedicated an entire blog post to myself and my birthday.  Perhaps in my self discovery process I'll find that I'm a complete narcissist.  Hm...

Whatever I find out about myself, I do know one thing: I sure love this little (big!!) girl.

i'm glad Kennedy, Emily, and Marie will get to see Hawaii for the first time together. :) I've never been before either, and it will be especially fun to have so many fun people to share the experience with. We are really looking forward to spending time with you guys in Utah, but thankgoodness we will get more time together in Hawaii also!!

I know, Jen! I'm so glad we'll get to spend more time with you than just the short 2 days here in Utah. That would simply not be enough time :)

How could a vacation like that be anything less than amazing. That sounds wonderful And there's nothing wrong with a little soul searching. When I searched for mine I found out I didn't have one. Kidding
