Yeah, I'm making up words such as "birthdayness" because I can do that. But let's talk about me! And my birthday! It was wonderful and awesome and fun and most importantly- the best yet. Part of me is kind of sad because it can't be this great every year, but this year it was great and I have a fantastic life.
So I've been getting cards and presents in the mail for three days, but the first one I got was from Kim and she got me a goat. The fact he isn't real isn't great, but at least I have a goat. I feel like maybe I should just start getting goats and sheep for my desk. But nonetheless, I love how she supports my obsessions, because now my desk is going to look amazing.
On Friday Matt gave me his present even though my birthday was Saturday. Between him and the kids they can't keep nothing a secret. The best part was that earlier, Jackson flat out said, "Daddy got you a present. And you can wear it on your finger!" God damn adorable. It's actually two rings and I can only wear one at a time because my fingers are weird and buying me rings is a bit difficult. But it's OK because I don't like being flashy as it is. Plus, I like to wear cocktail rings and that can be a bit much with this too. But it is super sparkly, just like I like 'em.
At noon, he came home and then him and I went to lunch and to the mall for a few hours. It was kind of nice to spend time with just him. When we came back home, I had more mail! This time it came from southern cutie Dianne.
Saturday night we went to my mom's for dinner and had birthday cake! One of my all time favorite cakes is from Coldstone Creamery and it's called "Cheesecake Named Desire". If you have never had this, get it. Every calorie and gram of fat is worth it, I promise.
Emily. She asks me if the birthday fairy had come. Weird, because I had been texting her in the morning so at first I thought she texted the wrong person. Then she tells me to go look on my door step. Cautiously, I open my door to see a little bag sitting on my front step.
I obviously run back in like the five year old I really am and dump it all out:
But the party isn't over, oh no, bitches. Me, Emily, Amy and Tammy are hitting the road Friday morning and are Chicago bound! We're going to party like we're Irish in a city with a green river, and we are going to be dorky tourists on a trolley, we are going to eat more carbs in one weekend than most people do in a week, and we are going to have a fabulous time! I am so excited for this girls weekend that I don't know how I will ever get through the week! I'll probably be grinning ear to ear all week thinking about the fun weekend coming up.
And to everyone who sent me Facebook messages, posts, emails, and cards? THANK YOU. You all rock and make my life that much more awesome. If I could give you sloppy kisses and big hugs I would. You all make my birthday that much better each and every year and I don't know what I'd do without all of you. Cheers!
