Breezy Days: Benexa

Benexa

March 7, 2012
Ryan & I looove to double date, and we especially enjoy our couple friends.

Instead of saying both of their names, which is suuuuch a hassle, we like to make things easier on ourselves and give them celebrity names.

Hayley & Rob= Hob
Kimberly & Kyle= Kimmel
Taylor & Nicole= Niccog
Kyle & Ashley= Kashley
Ben & Alexa= Benexa

It was Alexa's 21st birthday on Saturday, March 3rd.
She erroneously thought her boyfriend, Ben, wasn't throwing her a birthday party, so she threw one for herself the night before her birthday.
Texas sheet cake, Salvadorian food, Spanish karaoke, birthday candles, and friends were all there.
Little did she know that Ben had something else planned for her....

For two weeks, Ben had in place, a surprise breakfast party at his apartment planned for Saturday morning.
I was enlisted to help, so I showed up to help make the french toast.
The apartment was PACKED with all of Alexa's bestest friends.

The party hears the couple inching towards the door, we hide.....then, SURPRISE!!!!
She covers her face when...WHAT THE HECK.
WHAT IS THAT SHINY THING ON HER LEFT HAND!?
Ben had picked her up from her apartment, proposed, then scared the holy tar out of her with a surprise birthday.

Suffice it to say it was AWESOME.

We wrapped up the party and rushed over to Ryan and Ben's flag football game. 
We watched our men completely DOMINATE.
We finished the day with Benexa.
 Heading up to Park City to shop around, eating Cafe Rio, watching Jeopardy, and talking/laughing the rest of the night.

They'll be married this summer! 
Um, so stoked??

<3 Ryan & Brianna Rios= Brios
