Memorial Day and The Bro is 21!

My Daddy had Friday before Memorial Day off work, so he and my Momma came up to see me and the bro. Colby’s 21st birthday was yesterday, so we celebrated while Momma and Daddy were here. Here are a few pictures from the weekend!

After dinner, we went to my grandparents’ house. My Daddy and Colby went through my great-uncle’s collection of knives, so we had a little fun with them!

Pretty scary, huh?

Momma and I worked around my apartment on Saturday while the boys went to look at a new truck for Colby. He’s been looking for a new truck for about a year, and finally found one! Here he is with it!

Saturday night we went to Outback Steakhouse with our grandparents and adoptive parents from church, then hung out at the grandparents’ house for awhile.

Also, to celebrate Colby’s birthday, I got…

an iPhone!

After reading everyone’s comments and playing around with a few more friends’ phones, I finally decided on an iPhone. With the money my Momma found in my dresser, I was able to get one, and I love love love it! I seriously think it is the most amazing thing ever invented!

Momma and Daddy had to go home after Sunday morning church and lunch, so after evening church, we hung out with our adoptive family and some friends and watched this awesome movie!


I had Monday off, so I spent the majority of the day laying in my bed watching Glee. I should’ve done something productive, but after these last couple of crazy work weeks, I needed a day to just do nothing. It was amazing!


Monday night, I went to my adoptive family’s house and watched Princess and the Frog with Joyce and Whitley. Great, great movie! I love Disney movies anyway, and this one was really great! If you haven’t seen it, you must!


Colby went out with some of his friends Tuesday night for a birthday dinner, and it got me thinking about my 21st birthday. After cheesecake with the family, I went to dinner with Jessica. Her birthday is three days after mine. Now, we don’t drink anyway, but it is kinda funny telling people that for your 21st birthday, you had dinner with your bestie (who was about 4 1/2 months pregnant) and her two year old son, and you had virgin strawberry daiquiris!

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. I’ll leave you with a little flashback to 2007 and my 21st birthday (back when I was really blonde)!
