That's right, I'm finally 21! That means Nick and I can go party now.... just kidding. But I'll finally get to change my drivers license -- big news, right? 
I was so lucky to get to celebrate my birthday for over a week this year! Nick's sister, Tiffany, and her cute family actually stayed over at our house on their way to Durango from Elko. We hadn't seen them since October, and it was so fun to see how much the girls had grown. They brought an amazing chocolate cake to celebrate my birthday a week early. 

Last Sunday, my dad was released as bishop in his university student ward. It's amazing how much has happened in the three years that he has had that calling! I was so glad that I was able to be there to hear both my mom and dad speak. 
Another perk of being home is that I actually had time to cook! I've had the weird urge to make a red velvet cake for months, which is funny because I'm typically not a huge fan of cake. My excuse was that I wanted to make my own birthday cake. So here it is -- the finished product:

But the best part is the color of the inside!

Nick is always the king of surprises. This weekend, he planned a surprise party with a lot of our good friends and a new pizza restaurant in Provo. I had no idea until I walked in!

Two of my best friends, Emily and Jo, were the party planners and decorated all of the tables with a beach theme. They even got me a sweet leopard birthday hat! 

Thanks for the great birthday, everyone!
