In case the cake isn't enough of a giveaway, today is my birthday. I'm officially 24 years old! Woo hoo! Yippee! Hip hip hooray!
Okay, enough celebrating. Jack Day isn't a national holiday yet. But it should be.
The day started off with a delicious breakfast prepared for me by my honey. He wanted to surprise me and serve me breakfast in bed, but unfortunately for him I woke up before he was done. I was quickly shooed back into my room where I was kept locked up almost like a damsel in distress. Seriously, I felt like Rapunzel trapped up in her tower. Let me out, gosh darn it!
I paced around the little room, and soon found myself making the bed, organizing the desk, and gathering clothes to donate. I was about to tackle the bathroom floor with a toothbrush and some cleanser when Brian came in, yelling and screaming at me because I wasn't in bed.
"Get in bed!"
"But I've already made it! I'm awake! I don't want to get in bed."
"How can I serve you breakfast in bed if you aren't in bed?"
"Let's just eat at the table."
Sigh. Eventually I convinced him that the Birthday Boy gets to do whatever he wants and that I wanted to eat at the table. So we ate at the table, which apparently isn't where you are meant to eat breakfast.
Family called, friends texted, and many more friends and family sent their birthday wishes through Facebook. I quickly responded to my mounting pile of fan mail and then Brian and I were off for a shopping spree. I used birthday money to buy a board game and a book! That's right, folks, I'm livin' large.
It was then that Brian had to go back to work, leaving me alone with the television for the first time that day. Oh, did I forget to mention? We got cable and internet today. Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday to MEEEE-EEEEE. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
So I watched some Seinfeld and Family Guy reruns for the first time in 8 months. It was amazing. My mind turned into mush and everything. Just like I remembered!
At about 7:00 PM I went over to my friend Kayla's house for a low-key, super fun birthday party. It was so much fun! We laughed and swooned over a young Elvis Presley in Blue Hawaii while devouring pizza and chocolate peanut butter cake! Oh, and in case you didn't know, when two women and three men love each other... well, I'll tell you when you're older.
