Today is my roommate Kyle's birthday! Yup... he's 23, beautiful, and single (to all you ladies who were wondering).
Well Kyle's a pretty hot topic in the world of BYU... probably the most popular kid on campus, so we wanted to make sure that we as roommates weren't overshadowed in all of his birthday wishes. How did we do this... well... maybe it wasn't ALL that great... we had a fantastic breakfast waiting for him when he woke up. I know... I think that it may be becoming a tradition in our apartment that that is what happens on your birthday--you get a decorated apartment and breakfast. It seems like it's really the only time that all of us are home and conscious.
So last night, we (minus Kyle) made a midnight run to good 'ol Wally World (what is it with me and midnight runs to that place!?) with no idea what in the world we were going to do. It was kind of panic mode when we realized that we really should have hit up the dollar store earlier in the day. However, we still managed to end up ok. We figured we'd do breakfast and decorate and do a bunch of dumb little gifts... nothin' too hard, but still good. We would have probably thrown him a huge party later in the day, but Kyle unfortunately does not like parties. At all. We ended up finding a scarecrow that we have dubbed as his girlfriend for the day. After finding that, we felt better about ourselves and other things just fell in place.

After a late night at Wal Mart, it was an even earlier morning... trying to wake up to be make breakfast was probably one of the hardest things I will have to do all week. Jake came in to wake me up and I walked out of my room to find him asleep on the love sac. Great start. But we got to it and got decorations up (thanks to leftovers from my birthday and seasonal ones that have been sent in packages from my mom) and a breakfast of french toast, buttermilk syrup, scrambled eggs, and lemon poppy seed muffins all made in time for us to eat, not shower (yes, it is most definitely a hat day), and run out the door to not be late for work.
