For those of you who were around here for my birthday last year know that I love, love, love my birthday. I love being awesome for one whole day of the year.
And I don't like to celebrate alone. Over the last few years I've really come into my own as a person and really love being around the friends and family who are awesome to me, and love me the way I am. And every year I'm blown away by how much they really are happy that here I am, for yet another year. It's always kind of a cool feeling to know people like you. And the for real kind of like, not the like where you think.. maybe they don't really like me and are just saying it. No. Every year on my birthday I am reminded at how lucky I am to have such awesome friends and a great family.
This year will be no different. On Thursday I will *officially* be 29 years old. It's like, my very last hurrah of my 20's and I'm pretty damn excited. A few months ago I decided that I'm throwing myself a birthday party and I want to have FUN. So on Saturday, I have a great group of friends joining me for dinner and then we're heading back to my house for dessert and a sex toy party. It's going to be hilarious and fun. I've been ubber excited for a few weeks and then when the guest list of people who are for sure coming came together.. I get even MORE excited.
This past weekend I went shopping with my mom and she unexpectedly bought me a pair of new boots for my birthday. She knew my fat girl boots were too big for me and then told me to try new ones on for fun. When I found these ones, I was pretty much in love. Like.. I loved them and in my head I was trying to figure out if I bought them that day if it'd be really awful. And in the end, I knew I couldn't spend $70 on boots right now. But I tried them on anyways and my mom kept asking if they fit ok, I said they did and she's like, "Good. Grab the box, happy birthday." UM.. *die of happy*. Really. I am so happy I got new boots and that my mom got them for me. It's a really big deal because I haven't gotten a big birthday present really for YEARS. And it's totally ok because as an adult I don't think you should expect presents from parents and grandparents. It's always nice and greatly appreciated, but I'm old enough to recognize that people have bills. So I never count on anything. So here are my new boots. It's not a super great picture and my other leg ruins it, but I love them. Seriously.
But I said before.. I don't want to celebrate alone. So, sticking with last year's tradition I'm going to hold a "Sara's Favorite Things" GIVEAWAY. Last year I drew three names to win a box full of absolute crazy ass shit that are some of my very favorite things. You don't know what will be in there, but you can be sure it's going to be awesome and you'll probably think, "Dang- dat girl be crazy ass". There may be one winner... there may be more. You just won't know until I draw the names lovahs.
BUT the box will have a TON of stuff in it. I promise. Last year each box contained $40 of random crazy in it. This year.. I'm not telling. But it IS awesome. And remember-- there may be more than one winner.
