Birthday Celebrations!

Besides killing my dog I have actually had some good birthday celebrations. The first one was a combined party with Jill (she is graduating from the U). We had a delicious dinner at the Jensens, followed by Rainbow Chip cake and Root Beer floats and a couple presents. Everyone was so nice to make dinner for me and thanks to Brad, Teri, and the Bentleys for the gifts!

The next celebration I had been planning for a couple months. Monday night we had a girls night. We went out to eat and then went and saw Twilight. I know I am a few weeks behind all the Twilight hype, but I wanted to do it for my Birthday!

We had dinner at Rumbi Grill. Very good food. I think they might just have the best french fries ever! Going around the table clockwise, Me, my mom, my Aunt Rauna, cousin Heidi, cousin Laree, sister-in-law Emily, and sister-in-law Kimmy.

Sorry this pic is blurry, but I still had to include it. I don't know if everyone was as excited as I was...
Right after the show. We told everyone to scrunch together for the picture. I don't know if we were just giddy from just watching the show or what, but we couldn't stop laughing at my mom. It looks like we are sitting next to a stranger that just happened to get in the picture. I guess you just had to be there to think it was funny.

The almost last celebration was a viewing of The Dark Knight last night. I LOVE this show for many reasons. I love Heath Ledger and thinks he does an excellent job as the Joker, Christian Bale is the all time GREATEST actor (and it doesn't hurt that he is very good looking), and put them together with a good story and there you have one good flick!


I didn't take any pictures last night unfortunately, but we had quite a crew with the Bentleys and Kimmy and Oliver. Thanks everyone for making the journey and staying up late to watch the show. We are having an Encore tonight for Jamie, Mike, and Jill if anyone is interested in experiencing the Zen of Blu.

So, really besides one little set back of running Milo over I have had a good birthday. Trent even came home last night with Cafe Rio and a very cute running shirt that I have wanted forever. He is always good at surprising me even if I tease him that he doesn't! Thanks Trent!
***And just a side note. Trent is worried that people might not know that I was joking when I said he had been trying to run Milo over for months. That's not true, he may have thought about it a time or two, but he would NEVER do it. He just leaves the actually killing to me. ;) ***

Last night was fun. Thanks for having us. The Zen of Blu is amazing. I think (besides the Milo incident) I love that your birthday has lasted 3 days. That is the kind of party we all want.

Happy Birthday. Even if you did kill your dog. Hopefully it got better later in the day. I hope you liked Twilight. We need to hang out sometime.

How sad about your dog! And on your birthday of all days! It sounds like you had a relatively good day besides that though. Happy Birthday!

I love your attitude and how quickly you choose to laugh at life...glad you got some celebrating in around the drama!!

I'm glad to hear your birthday wasn't all bad! I think you had a birthweek rather than a birthday! I'm going to try that next year.

Jill said...

Thanks for sharing your birthday celebrations with me. I guess you know you are a true Jensen when your birthdays last longer than a day. I don't want to hear any more crap about me dragging out my birthday! I am glad you had a good birthday!

Annie said...

Glad to hear that the birthday wasn't all sad. It'll definitely be one for the memory books with the Milo fiasco. So sorry about that.

I'm glad you waited for your birthday for Twilight. That's a fun way to celebrate. I totally loved the picture, too. It was funny even if I wasn't there.

Here's to wishing next year's birthday doesn't involve a major castastropy!

Glad you had such a good long birthday!!!
Sorry about your dog. Kathy (our daughter) ran over our pet dog many years ago--a lasting hurt. Have a good anniversary trip!

Luke & Kimmy said...

Makes me sad...makes me laugh.

Thanks for having us up last night. It was fun!

I'm so glad you had some good birthday celebrations. I read your post last night about running over your poor dog, and I wanted to cry for you. What a rotten thing to have happen on your birthday! I'm glad you were still able to celebrate. Happy Birthday!

Holy cow Amy! What a Birthday!

(Beside the tragic accident of Milo... I've never met Milo but I was sure sad reading about it)

Glad you had some fun Bday events to follow the tragedy.....:)

Wade Family said...

What an eventful day you had. So sorry to hear about Milo but glad you were able to have some fun despite the situation. Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks.

Jake and Becky Veigel Family said...

WOW, what a crazy few days. I called and left a message but you probably didn't even hear with all that stuff going on. Happy birthday. There is a song by Matt the electrician named Milo that would make a good tribute song. you should get it off of Itunes, but I think I burned it for Kimmy before we left.
