1) All of my bird day festivities
My parents came in town the weekend before my birthday, and my friends helped me celebrate the week after! I could definitely feel the love while I turned the big 2-4.

2) The start of American Idol
American Idol is one of my favorite shows, and it has been for a LONG time (I picked Kelly Clarkson from the moment I saw her on season 1). I was excited to see the new panel of judges this year! So far, I am loving Keith's sweet spirit and Nicki's random/funny/hardass attitude, but I am not the biggest Mariah fan. I wish JLo would come back!
Austin and I have an early favorite, Angie Miller. She sang an original song during the last round of "Hollywood Week", and it was beautiful. I can't wait to see more of her on the live shows!
I got cards in the mail from my mom and dad on the big day, and my "special someone" (Austin) made the day really great for me. He cooked me a steak dinner, got me my favorite ice cream, gave me a sweet card, brought me flowers, and let me pick the movie we watched! We had a really great celebration.
We kept the love rollin' the weekend after V-day at Beaumont Ranch. It was Austin's first time to ride a horsie, and I got a kick out of watching him in the saddle!

4) My new gadget
I am LOVING my new iPad mini. I use it every day! My favorite thing to do on it is read or look at my favorite sites (facebook, instagram, etc.) in bed. It's so nice to have something a little bit smaller that does everything my laptop does. If you're thinking about getting one of these bad boys, do it!
Good Reads is an app I stumbled upon while I was snooping around the store on my iPad. It is kind of like facebook but with actual books. I have my own little profile, and I can list all the books I have read, am currently reading, and want to read in the future. I can rate the books I've already finished (on a scale of 1-5 stars), and I can look at my friends' profiles to see what books they've read and how they rated them. I'm liking it a lot! I am currently reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult, and I'm thinking this one is worth about 4 or 5 stars.
I hope you guys had a fabulous February! I'm looking forward to the warmer temps and week off (for Spring Break) in March...how about you?
