Basically, Grandma turned 90 and we had an impromptu dance party in her driveway that warranted a drive-by from the cops to see what all the commotion was about :)
Happy Birthday Grandma!

...to my bedroom...
...and onto my bed...
So who did it?
c) my really really REALLY bored roommate Tacia :)
Me: So... were you home alone all afternoon?
Tacia: Yeah... why do you ask?
She even wrote the number to the Rejection Hotline on one of the hearts saying "Call Me!" (FYI: it's 602-230-4210--call, it's pretty funny)
Never a dull moment :)

You probably thought that after the Gavin family white elephant gift exchange you'd never see it again right? (Obviously I'm talking about the coat here, not Rocky) Well, that's what I had in mind when I gave it away...
Anyway, we've had some unexpected cold weather recently, which may be the reason why this little number made a trip to the grocery store:

Here's what you need:
Any kind will do really... preferably a cheap one that comes with the apartment--not an expensive one you bought yourself... just in case things go horribly wrong, you won't be stuck with a radioactive microwave after you move out of the apartment.
Really, I only included this picture because I figured out a new setting on my camera where I can manually focus on stuff--it's cool! Anyways... you need a match like this one:
a mason jar
Yes... that is how it sounds in real life!!!
Somehow, by putting a lit match in the microwave, it super-heats the flame and creates a fiery ball of plasma which rises above the burning match. The mason jar is necessary, I assume, to keep the plasma contained & to prevent it from melting the roof off your microwave. I'm a little too scared to try this without the jar. Would it even work? I also haven't had the guts to leave it glowing longer than 5 seconds or so--it's about at that time when the buzzing starts to get MUCH louder and it makes you wonder just what is going on indside there...?? Why don't you try it and let me know how it goes? You can do a blog post about it :)

Brenna told me weeks in advance that she & Cody wanted to take me out to lunch on my bday so don't make any plans. I didn't think anything of it because that's what they did last year. On her way down, Brenna called to ask for directions & that was the first time I began to get suspicious--she wasn't giving me straight answers to my questions (When I asked "Are you driving or is Cody?" her response was "yes". hmm.....)
Surprisingly, I truly had NO idea all the fun Brenna had planned!!! (Which is ironic because only 2 days earlier I was talking to Allison & saying how I am always soooo suspicious and that it's almost impossible for anyone to surprise me blah blah blah)
When I went to greet Brenna I was SOOOO happy to also see Monica, Chanda, Brian, & Treyton in the parking lot! That alone warranted a very happy birthday. But then Dad & Mom also showed up with Colton, and Carla soon came with all the kiddos!! I was so happy, I seriously almost started crying ...but I spent like an hour doing my eye makeup that morning so I restrained my tears. :)
Spending time with my family remains the best part about my birthday BUT... I found out Brenna recruited Allison & together they went through all my friends on Facebook sent out a secret invite to come celebrate my birthday with me! It was the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!
So, again, THANK YOU SO MUCH BRENNA!!!!!!! I love you!!
And thank you to everyone who made the most boring/ugly drive in all of Arizona to come celebrate my birthday with me--it meant SO much to me :)
If you have facebook, you can check out all the pics on my profile. If not, go here.
