Birthdays are Awesome

It is possible that I am more excited about my birthday than someone in her late 20s ought to be, but I just can't help myself.  I love an excuse to celebrate anything, and my birthday is extra exciting because I get texts and phone calls from friends and family.  I'm sure the presents don't hurt, either!

Anyway, on Wednesday, I just worked like normal, but one of my co-workers brought in a stash of delicious baked goods for me.  Then in the afternoon, we had a little birthday get-together.  Another co-worker was also celebrating his birthday, so we had even more treats!

After work, I got to open my presents from John!  He got me a tripod for my camera, which you all should be excited about, because it means you might get some more interesting backgrounds than the wall in my entryway!  It also means John and I can take better pictures together!  Can you tell I am excited about it??

John also got me a new watch!  Let's be honest - he did an awesome job at picking this out.  I like how it is classy and will go with everything, but it's also kind of different.  I just need to find a place to get a few links removed.  Or I need to gain some weight in my wrists, which might be tricky.

After presents, we went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants!  After a delicious steak, baked potato and beer bread, I got the most amazing dessert for FREE!

We got home and I talked to various relatives who called to say Happy Birthday.  Then at the very end of the day, I got a call from my friend Anne, who I haven't talked to in way too long.

All in all, I would say it was a pretty fabulous birthday!

  1. Happy belated birthday, Andi!
    Ow, I myself am more excited for loved ones' birthday than my own! I love preparing surpises for them. Not surprise party though, I don't like the idea of surprising someone with a bunch of people because I'd never know whether or not hs/she would like it or feel up to it.
