I hope you all enjoyed my birthday yesterday. I know I did. And thank you for all the nice birthday wishes!
A made me a nice breakfast, then we lazed about for most of the day. My parents went to Colorado on Friday and I dropped them off at the airport. When I picked them up my mom gave me a gift card to Target and a set of little dessert wines.
We drank one of them yesterday afternoon and it was quite yummy.
We went to dinner with a couple of my fantastic friends and then A went to check on the Charlie while the girls and I went to see Mamma Mia!
Luckily, B was happy to be the designated driver so M and I could split a bottle of wine during the movie. The plot is thin, Pierce Brosnan can't sing, the timeline is ridiculous, and none of that matters. It was fantastically fun - we were probably annoying the heck out of the other theater goers with our seat dancing and giggling.
After that we went to sing karaoke.
As you can see from my "noooo...I'm sooooo sober" face, I was a little tipsy before we even made it to the bar.
Outside the bar there was an adorable dog sitting in/on a truck (the window to the rear was open so he could move in and out).
Lots of friends showed up, along with random people from a wedding who tagged along after my friends defected from the dancing.
Not long into the night I moved from tipsy to stupid, but I managed to muddle through Midnight Train to Georgia and at least stand up with my friends as we realized none of us knew anything other than the chorus of Rehab. (Check those bloodshot eyes. Hot, I know.) It was really nice and I got to see some friends I haven't seen in months. The only crap moment was when my friend M was talking to me and a friend who got married last year and just bought her first house. She started talking about her baby swing and asking which one of us wanted it. She has been drinking so I know she wasn't thinking about it (she knows all about my IF and is normally very sweet) but I almost burst into tears because she was being quite forceful about wanting one of us to take it and saying she wanted us to have babies.
This morning I woke up to a bit of a hangover, blueberry pancakes (thank you honey), and a reminder that I had gotten presents!
I got a cool bracelet from Barcelona that also had matching earrings:
A cute necklace:And chocolate!
So another year begins...
