Turning 22

Dear Reader,

Last week was super busy, but it was also super awesome. It started on Sunday when my roommates and I made a cake for my cousin and his wife. They just bought a house, it was their anniversary on the 26th and they're having a baby next month. So in our opinion, a cake was overdo. And it looked sweet, if I do say so myself (no pun intended):

Then on Wednesday I helped my sister move into her apartment, attended my first ever book club (next month we're reading The Screwtape Letters) and I went to see Alice in Wonderland at the dollar theatre with my London friends. (All after working 12 hours at my internship.)

The next day (the 27th) was my birthday. As much as I love my internship, I wasn't super excited about spending another 12 hours there, especially on my birthday. But I did it. And when I came home I promptly had cake with friends, ice cream with a few more friends, and then went to see the midnight showing of Prince of Persia, with all of the above mentioned people.

But the fun didn't stop there. I got home at roughly 2:30 AM, packed, and took a shuttle at 3:30 up to the airport to fly home to Michigan for Memorial Day weekend. Although I slept on the commute to and from Salt Lake, and then on the plane home, I didn't really sleep (well) until Friday night (36 hours later)...and going that long without sleep is never good for me. My body essentially turned off last night and I passed out after dinner while my family was watching a movie. Party on.

So all in all, it was an amazing 22 birthday, and I am so glad to be home right now!!!


  1. Ooo, and we're soooo happy to have you here. (And yet I'm typing on your blog instead of talking to you in the kitchen; weird, huh?)

  2. Precious moments wasted. And now I am gone.

  3. I took one of those pictures!!

    I am also honestly a smidge put out that the squirrel was neither pictured or mentioned.. somehow i'll try to get over it

  4. Bah I miss doing things with the London friends :( I only have two here with me, and you aren't one of them...

  5. I miss you too!!! I wanted you to party with us. I like to think that you were there in spirit.

  6. That cake (for Cassie & David?) is gorgeous!!!
