Day 07 → Happy Birthday To Me

Today is a “whatever tickles your fancy” listing, so I thought I’d tell you about my birthday real quick. Oh yeah. Today is my birthday! I’m newly twenty three. A good friend told me today that after 21, birthdays just start blending together, and by 30, you start to avoid them, so I’m determined to enjoy my birthday for as long as I can!

First off, the people I work with totally love me (and I totally love them as well). They went all out… telling me happy birthday over and over all day, buying me balloons and bringing me silly gifts (some WAY sillier than others…) and just generally making me feel loved.

Someone caught wind of the fact that I’ve never been given flowers before, ever, so someone bought me a dozen red roses. It does pay to have a birthday so close to Valentine’s Day I suppose!

They teased a lot about getting me a stripper for my birthday (this is more funny the better you know me, I’m sure), but they didn’t… but I think my cake certainly reflected this desire (one of the other managers made this from scratch… red velvet cake… mmm).

My family and I went out to dinner after work, which was nice, and then I hung out with some friends from work, which was even nicer. Seriously, by the end of the day I felt so loved and appreciated, I almost didn’t know what to do with myself!
