27 years old!

I had my birthday last week. I love birthdays for one big reason: I get to hang out with my friends. I've always been one of those people who loves throwing parties, I love to hostess, but I can't seem to ever get a lot of people to come to my parties. I blame facebook. Before facebook, we all wanted to go to parties and see people and catch up so bad. Now? Nobody wants to see each other anymore, no one needs to catch up. And everyone RSVPs to parties, and never shows up. I haven't thrown a party in about a year....since my last birthday, because I try to hide it, but I really do get sad and disappointed at all the people who don't show up when they say they are going to. But oh well. I understand people are busy. I'm busier than busy. I make busy look like a yoga retreat.

So we had a nerd party at my family's restaurant, Bella's Fresh Mexican Grill, where we watched Doctor Horrible and played Nerd Jeopardy.
I made a very sad looking tardis cake. I know. It's ridiculously pathetic and droopy. 

And I got to see some of my besties. Chad and his boyfriend, Adam, came dressed up in Battlestar Galactica gear.

Shawn drove like a madman all the way up from Spanish Fork to see me on my birthday. 

And Brady made a break from doing lights in Wyoming and interviews in Idaho to come to my party. He even came with me to my family party the next day.
Congrats to him by the way, he's going to be the resident lighting designer for BYU-I. Their facility is just like the LDS Conference Center. Quite the challenge. Not only is he going to learn so much, but he's going to  wow them.

But this year was great. I didn't care it was my birthday, it was just fun to visit with family and friends.

Nothing wrong with the cake: it looks tasty, and if it was, that's all that counts! :) It looks like you had a good time.

Happy birthday, Mandee!

Mandee! I would have come if I would have been invited. ;) It's funny, I've had Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog songs stuck in my head for the past week! Annoying.. but awesome.
Hope your birthday was spectacular!
