Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Today was my birthday!! I celebrated my birthday with my family last Sunday. I got the new book Breaking Dawn and I am experiencing self control because I need to read 2 other books before I can start that one. I also got tickets to go see Brian Regan on August 13, 2008. Jamie made me a cool sesonal craft like the one she made for the craft exchange at Ruby's Inn. I also got some jewelry.

Today started out with me and my mom going to be in the audience at Good Things Utah. It was so much fun. It was cool to see how things actually worked on the set. The set is a lot smaller than it looks on TV. For those of you who don't know Good Things Utah or GTU is a show that is hosted by 4 ladies. They are Nicea, Angie, Marti, and Reagan. Angie is in my ward but I hadn't ever talked to her. They do a cooking segment, craft segment, and other things. Before the show started Marti asked the audience who was celebrating a birthday and I raised my hand. At the end of the show they tell whose birthday it is in the audience and you get to wave. Also at the end we got to get our pictures taken with them and talked to them a little. I sat by Reagan and told her that I had a daughter named Reagan and she asked how old and I told her she was almost 2. They asked me what else I was doing for my birthday and I told them I was going out to lunch and to a movie with my husband. They were really nice. It was a fun experience.

When we got back my mom watched Emma and Reagan (Landon was in School) and Dave and I went and saw The Dark Knight. It was pretty intense. I thought it was good but a little too violent and I don't think it is a movie that I will see again. It was nice to spend some time with Dave though. And it was a very fun day and I really enjoyed it!!!

Happy Birthday! That would have been lots of fun to go to the set and see the show!! And, I am impressed you haven't opened the new book yet, I couldn't have that much self-control if it were in my hands!!!

Happy Birthday girl! Sounds like you had a great day :)
I too am having to exhibit self control when it comes to Breaking Dawn... I still need to read book #3 and our book club book before I can break it open. Ahhh the agony!

Sounds like you had a great day. I haven't seen the Dark Knight yet but I heard it was intense, not a kid show. Well happy birthday.
