Today is my birthday. I woke up to little pings on my phone telling my I have Facebook messages. Everyone should have a Facebook account for the sheer pleasure of having it on your birthday. :) I know not everyone agrees, but I find it absolutely delightful!
My mama & dad wished me a happy birthday this morning. Wait...I don't think my dad actually wished me a happy birthday. He probably doesn't love me anymore. Or he loves my brother more than he loves me. Sidenote: he used to tell us that ALL THE TIME growing up. BUT he would tell us both equally. If I was whining because Big Bro got to do something, dad would say "that's because I love him more than I love you" and he would do the same to Big Bro when he was whining about me. Bystanders were appalled, but we knew he was full of it and loved us both tremendously. It was genius!
Anyway, I got to work and as a birthday gift to me, one of the girls who works for me wore a dress...I'm pretty sure for the first time ever to work. How awesome is that?? Then my godmother (did I mention that I work with so many of my closest friends?) gave me a sweet, sweet card.
I walked over to BFFs desk to ask her how she likes the new coffee I brewed (Sidenote #2: we cold brew our coffee each week and bring it to work. Not sure if you have ever had it, but I like it better than regular coffee. Each week we have a different kind.) since it was a new kind we picked up during our trip to Granbury a couple weeks ago. She handed me a James Avery bag and told me happy birthday. Nothing bad EVER comes in a James Avery bag!!
THEN...Lizard came in with this...
At lunch we are going to go to Ziziki's which is one of my favorite restaurants ever. YAY! Then tonight, I'm going to the early Jazzercise class. After I'm meeting up with BFF & Lizard to go get a giant birthday sundae!!
I don't know if you all can tell, but I'm about to jump out of my own skin because of pure happiness. Not because of all the gifts...I mean those are awesome without a doubt! But just because I'm happy and I have the best family and friends and most of all because I'm in control of my life.
Last year, I didn't celebrate my birthday much. I think we went out to lunch and that is about it. Oh and I remember my Dinner Group friends brought me a piece of keylime pie. :) I was on the road to happiness, but I wasn't ready to make a pitstop then. Now? Now, I just want to live. I want to do. I want to see. I want to make out with a boy! (Not sure yet when that is going to happen, but I will be ready for it!! :)) I'm sitting here looking at my calendar for June and for the rest of the month, there are only 8 days with nothing written on it...well, I have Jazzercised penciled in on those days, but nothing else.
Frankly, it looks exhausting, but it also looks like happiness!
I hope you all have a Happy My Birthday! :)
