mr. macgreggor

well, you guessed it,
yet ANOTHER birthday.
this little twirp
mr. macgreggor
is turning
the big 14.
holy crap.
where does time go honestly?
i had to pull out this picture from 2006.
i was blonde, and he was young.
boy, how things change.
greggor is quite the kid, i tell you what.
you never know what to expect.
he's always up to something. my mother would say "scheming." he's famous for his "mumbling under his breath while getting in trouble," and his "short but sweet prayers." if we want to eat fast, we know who to call on for the blessing of the food. he always has something up his sleeve. he definitely keeps us on our toes. he recently posted his own videos on youtube. describing why you shouldn't judge "offbrand" paintballs just because they are from walmart. my dad told me to watch the videos and i nearly wet my pants. the kid honestly is hilarious. he's also VERY protective. in highschool, when boys would come over, he would do everything in his power to make them feel uncomfortable. he'd tease them to no end. this kid is a thinker. i remember one night, greggor took advantage of having his bedroom on the upper level of our house. as two of my guy friends were leaving, greggor popped out the screen of his window and started attacking them with his airsoft gun. at the time i thought he was the BIGGEST pain in the butt, but now i'll admit, i do miss the kid. (sidenote: hmmm maybe greggor should come live here in logan with me and scare off all the creeper guys that are around here. haha) i can't believe how fast he has grown up. in fact, i think he's even taller than me now. (well who isn't? haha!) but greggor, you little butt, i hope you have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY. i miss you and love you. see you soon kiddo!

for either an acceptance, or a rejection letter
from the interior design department.
today my letter came.
i am officially a member
Utah State University's Interior Design Program. :]
it was well worth the wait.


birthday weekend.

well i'm officially the whopping 19 now.
i feel incredibly old, yet young.
it's kind of a weird feeling to be honest with you.
but anyways, i had quite possibly the best
birthday weekend ever. i don't even know where to begin.
it was a weekend filled with:
more food.
more laughing.
and plenty of pictures.
cristy and misty were home from colorado.
chelsey, lance, and baby carson were home from kaysville.
me, tash, and shalee were all home from college.
we were ever so pleased to have
it's been quite awhile since the harmans have all been together, so we enjoyed every last second of it.
saturday night: after the priesthood session, all the adults, including myself, made a good ole' visit to shon hing for our bi-annual conference dinner. it was fantastic. finally, haha i am old enough to attend this event. and i tell you what, being there is alot better than babysitting your siblings til 11 and praying your parents would bring you home leftovers. (haha, i've been doing this since i was 8) so this was a night i had been looking forward to for a long time. haha anyways, the food was so delicious. i think all in attendence had a good time. there's never a dull moment with those harmans around. from their laughs, to their stories, it just never gets old. uncle ryn even got to make a call to the police because of some "gang action" happening outside.

sunday got even better: dan, tammy & their finally showed up
and that's when the real party got started.
we ate, in fact we ate alot. we had it all. turkey, ham, rolls, aunt terisa's delicious potato salad, green salad, chips and dip, fresh fruit, (freak my stomach just growls thinking about it.) and aunt tina brought all sorts of delicious desserts. pretty sure i packed on the pounds this weekend.
after lunch, we took some family pictures.
we have all changed quite a bit since our last one, almost 12 years ago.
crazy how time flies.
anyways after that we played the most hilarious game.
it's called boxers or briefs.
we learned quite a few secrets...
haha and i'll leave it at that. :]
all in all it was a fantastic weekend, and i couldn't think of a better way to spend my birthday than with family.
