I am 21!!!!

Hey I had a great birthday everyone. Well first, I did white glove cleaning which wasn't fun, but I got my driver's liscense. That was exciting. Then I finished packing and made the four and half hour trip to Provo without a single stop. It was the first time to travel long distances by myself. Well utah isn't a really long drive.

When I got to Provo, I relaxed for a few minutes and then beck and i were off to the airport to pick Em up. We then went to Ikea. Got 50 cent hot dogs and went around the store. I got a few kitchen supplies while Em got a quit cover and a few other things. That was fun.

Then after that we went to Denny's. I got my b-day presents: a gift card, kitchen stuff, and some cool playing cards. It was really nice. I had my usual country fried steak with country fried potatoes. I also got a free dessert, cheesecake with chocolate on top. It was delicious. It was a lot of fun because we took funny pics at Denny's. I loved being able to be with my sisters. We laughed and chatted.

Next, we went home. There was also a pink tiera, a birthday bag, and some birthday balloons waiting for me. Beck made a birthday cake for me. It was chocolate as well and said Happy Birthday Hillary! and had the number 21. We then opened more presents. I got a shirt and shorts from Beck and some jewelry from Em. We then had IBC root beer with the bottles that look like beer bottles. We then took pictures chugging down the root beer it was fun. Then we went to bed.

It was a fun day. I am so glad I was able to spend it with my sisters.

The End of the Semester... And Everything Else...

-Well my sixth semester of college has come and gone. Actually when I start my internship, I will be a senior since I will have more than 90 credits. Now its just packing and cleaning as I try and cram as much stuff to take to Colorado.

-I finished the last book of the Twilight series, Eclispe. It was really good. There were a lot stories from different characters that were told. I am anxious for the fourth one to come out in August. I still think Twilight is the best book, then Eclispe, and then New Moon.
