Memorial Day Weekend!

Well for this Memorial Day Weekend we decided to take a little trip to Cleveland! Its not often that we have 2 whole days off together so it was a blast to go away and spend every minute with each other! It all started on Sunday morning. We dropped Tonka off at a friend's house who was nice enough to watch him for the night, then we headed up to Kirtland, OH to check out the temple! It was really cool. Its a weird feeling to stand in the very same room that Joseph Smith once stood and received visits from angels! It was an awesome experience. The temple grounds were so beautiful too!! There wasn't a whole lot else to do there so after about an hour and a half we decided to head toward Cleveland. After checking into our hotel and getting all settled in, we went to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. We were so hungry and it was sooo good! Then we went back to the hotel and watched the Cleveland Cavaliers game. By the time the game was over it was really late but the hotel pool was 24 hours so we decided to go swimming. It didn't last long cause we were so tired! The next day we woke up, checked out and went to a BBQ Ribs Cook Off! It was so good! We ate so much meat it was kinda gross! After we started to feel sick we left and made our way over to the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. Did you know that Rock n' Roll was born in Cleveland? yep, by a radio announcer whos only way to describe the music was "Rock n' Roll". Years later the Hall of Fame opened! It was really cool to see all the famous rock stars stuff there. Clothes, shoes, drums, guitars, pianos, cars, letters from one to another, we even saw what Elvis' Father wrote down and said at his funeral! It was pretty cool! After that we got in the car and headed home! We had a great weekend and can't wait to go on vacation again soon!

Happy Happy Birthday!!

Well 2 days ago I turned 22!! Can you belive it! This birthday felt weird to me mostly because last birthday I was getting married 2 weeks later so it was just a crazy time, but it was a great birthday! First, Preston bought me a beautiful bouquet of yellow tulips. Tulips have become my new favorite flower since we have been here in Ohio! They are everywhere and I just love them! Unfortunatley I had to work that day too, but I was busy all day so it was better than just sitting around wasting time. My friend at work woke up early that morning and made me this delicious cinnamon monkey bread stuff for breakfast! It was so nice of her! Then my other friend at work brought me an Ice Cream cake from cold stone!! I am so grateful to have friends like them!! They were really sweet! When I got home Preston and I went to dinner at Red Robin cause we were craving some french fries and a milk shake a whole lot! It was delicious! Then we went over to another friends house and watched their kids so they could go to an appointment! She made us a really delicious cake with mint chocolate chips on top! It was a really wonderful day!! And I got lots of fun presents!! Preston got me a wii and a plane ticket home in June, my parents bought us DDR for our wii, Nina sent me a gift card to my favorite clothes store ever (thanks nina!) and a couple other small things earlier in the month that we justified were ok cause they could be birthday presents!! :) lol.. It really was the best birthday ever!! Next up... One Year Anniversary!! YAHOO!!
