birthday recap

I had a wonderful birthday week! Someone told me it's okay to have a whole birthday month, but I think that's a bit excessive when you're born on the 1st.

Anyway, on my actual birthday, I got lots of awesome phone calls, emails, facebook messages, etc.  And while I was on the phone with my dad, I got a knock on my door.

An Edible Arrangement from my in-laws!
 I've given these to people before, but I've actually never even seen one in person.  I was ecstatic!  B came home and brought me a "balloon on a stick," so we added it in there.

Then we immediately moved it to the fridge because of the Florida heat.
For my birthday night, I wanted to go do Trivia Night at Mellow Mushroom once again.  The first time we went to this, we came in third place!  And it had been downhill since then.  But somehow last week we pulled out second place!!  This is awesome because coming in first or second is actually on my 101 List.  They also gave me a free dessert, so I was a very happy camper.
Our 2nd-place prize: $25 gift card to come back!
On Friday night, I had a party.  Or, well, a "get-together."  We don't actually know a lot of people here, and apparently my birthday falls at a really inconvenient time or something, so we had 5 guests (and a baby).  It was a "Hurricane Party"--I bought some hurricane mix and some rum, and we mixed up some frozen hurricanes!  It kinda just tastes like red Kool-Aid, if you're wondering.  I also made some cupcakes and B put a candle in one.
I find it really awkward to be sung to, so I did a little dance along with it.
I also got some birthday goodies in the mail from my family.  The card made me laugh because of how my 7-year-old nephew signed his super-long name:
Also, it looks like my Dad signed as "Nad" -- my whole family has pretty terrible penmanship

All in all, I'd say that 27 is starting off on the right foot.


  1. there's no such thing as being too excessive for your birthday!
