Twenty Seven

Yesterday was my birthday! That's okay if you forgot...maybe just make it up to me. Soon.
The day started when two of my dearest friends showed up from SLC to spend the day with us. Thanks Lane and Tom; we love you guys.

[ I want to add that Alana bought me a dress (I know, A DRESS!) for my birthday. A risky present but complete success...I wore it that night to dinner. Alana, thanks for being a risk taker. It actually fit me. ]
That night, Tod took me to dinner at the Top of the World -- the restaurant on top of the Stratosphere. The entire restaurant rotates so by the time dinner is over, you've seen the entire city!
***I posted this picture to also show off my hair which I curled -- by myself -- for the occasion. Furthermore, I used a flat iron to do it! Thank you Amber for the iron and Mark for the tutorial. This just proves that ANYONE can do ANYTHING.*** Our view during dinner...I want to add that I enjoyed the best steak I've tasted yet last night.
27 and 30 years old; time is passing so fast. I always wonder what the next year will bring...what will I be doing at 28?
One more thought: I think Tod looks super handsome in these pictures.

Happy Birthday! I'm surprised the car hasn't shown up yet. A red one right? I'm sure it will be there tomorrow.

Before I read about your talents with the curling---flat iron, I was thinking how long and pretty your hair is.

I might need you to give me the tutorial you got from Mark. Whenever I tried it was hit and miss. Some curls were gorgeous, most of them were...disasters. First I need to replace my old one, that I kicked (it was on the floor, in my way. it should have known better...or I should have known better. It popped when I tried to use it and a puff of smoke came out.) and broke.

Did I make this comment about me instead of you? (I'm home alone on Friday, not that it is a new thing)

Happy 27. I loved 27. I think it is a good looking number, which fits because you are looking fabulous.

Maybe you'll have twins by 28.

Happy Birthday!!

Haha, I remember on the first day of school, you said we could ask you question's about yourself, and I asked,"When's your birthday?" and you replied,"That's none of your buisness". =/...

Happy Birthday again!

Happy birthday Hol. Love the dress, love the hair. You look fabulous (and so does Tod). I know. . . 27. What will you be doing at 27?

Awww...what a cute couple!! We need to go to dinner there when we visit (I know I keep saying we're visiting soon...it's wishful thinking). I'm sure that Q's phone call was the highlight of your birthday. He enjoys making people's dreams come true.

Happy late birthday!!! You look beautiful. I hope you had a wonderful day. Mandy has some really cool tricks for curling hair with a straightener. It always amazes me when she does it.

Taurus is the best sign. Looks like you had a great birthday and I'm so glad. I love the hair.
