Since I am sitting at school waiting for my final to start in an hour, and because I already did my paper, which I thought was going to be a week late, but instead is actually due today (mini victory for me) and I have nothing to do, I decided I would update my blog.

On April 18th I turned the big 2-0 and am now no longer considered a teenager. While I feel kind of down about that, almost everyday at work I have people ask me how old I am and tell me I look really young, so I guess I should be happy about that. Anyways, my birthday was celebrated  4 days in a row and I ABSOLUTELY loved it, even if Andrew might not have. Friday night (the 16th) I went out to dinner with the Lawrence side of the family. We went to Coyotes and it was SOOOO yummy. They spoiled me of course and I got a really cute Betsey Johnson purse, some sun dresses, a really cute Invicta watch, a gift card to Charlotte Russe, some Tapout cups, and some computer accessories. The workers also sang to me and fed me ice cream. While that part was kind of awkward it was still a fun night.

The next day on Saturday (the 17th) Andrew and I slept in and then went to lunch at Red Robin...yummmm! We then made the trek to Stateline to ride the roller coasters and then go shopping. The rides were SO FUN (besides the gun/boat ride not working) and the roller coaster was freaking SCARY!
After the rides, Andrew took me shopping but I of course didn't find anything I liked. We even went to town square, but I only found a really cute shirt. After the shopping adventure wasn't as successful as I would have liked we went to Olive Garden for dinner and then went home.

On SUNDAY MY ACTUAL BIRTHDAY we went to church where I taught primary for the first time (even though I wasn't supposed to teach that week). The kids were kind of bad and when they found out it was my birthday one of the girls was like "you should have told us, we would have been gooder." It was so cute, but I didn't have anything for them to celebrate my birthday so I simply didn't tell them. They had to find out in sharing time, but oh well. After church Andrew and I took a long deserved nap after all the fire drama. After we woke up he took me shopping AGAIN where I didn't find much. Then we decided to go to Chili's because that's what we did for my 19th birthday when Andrew came to visit me in Logan. He is such a sweetheart and I loved that he thought of that idea. Finally on MONDAY the 19th of April we celebrated with my side of the familia by going to Claim Jumpers! It was good to spend time with the family and I'm so thankful everyone celebrated with me and the presents were a plus too ;]. OH! And on that WEDNESDAY I got to see Stephy when she took me to get pedicures. Then we went to Olive Garden and saw Kierstin and Leanna where Kierstin bought me dinner.

I guess turning 20 isn't so bad, especially since I got spoiled so much! :]

Now that the birthday celebrations are over I'm just focusing on the last week of school. This semester was not so good for me and I realized that online classes and night classes are not for me. Next semester I'm going to work MUCH harder and I'm even taking two classes with Stephy! Yippee! I just realize that after being married, school was the LAST thing I wanted to focus on, but maybe next semester will be better. I definitely need to get my major switched and start taking the right classes so school doesn't last so long for me. I think I've finally decided to be a teacher. Also, maybe I'll go to hair school some day and try that out. My options are open and I realize it's better that way.

This summer I'm just going to work and try to have the BEST SUMMER EVER with my hubby. He truly is the best thing that's ever happened to me and always tries to make me happy. This week alone he's surprised me with a shirt and hand picked flowers from the dessert. He makes me dinner when I'm busy and just always tries to make my life easier. I'm so blessed to have such an amazing man in my life and can't wait to continue our journey.

ALSO: Hanging out with my ADORABLE nephew a lot wouldn't be a bad thing either this summer.
