THE BIRTHDAY GIRLS!!! *myself and my sis*
I was so good about my birthday this year. Normally I tell everyone every day how many days there are left until my birthday. This year, I only did it a few times. My family and friends were very proud of me. Next year, they won't get off so easily though. I thought I would try out being "mature" for my birthday. It really isn't as much fun as being annoying.
Thursday I went out to dinner with my friends. They made me cupcakes and got me Twilight. I had read it already, but didn't own the book. I had bought the 2nd one when I finished the first and then Husband and the kids got me the 3rd and 4th in the series. Now I have the complete series and can read it again!!! Right now, Nae is starting on them. Dinner was awesome. Great food, great friends, good beer. I couldn't have planned a better night if I tried. I would have been over the moon with excitement if that was the end of the festivities, but my friends and family know me too well, so it wasn't.
Friday, the children gave me the cards they made for me. They were too cute! Zilla even wrote words! Nae and daddy helped, of course, but it was all his hand writing. He's doing such an amazing job! This is the first card he's been able to write on his own. That made it SO much more special. We bought a delicious cake. My sister and dad arrived and once we got them all settled we sang happy birthday to her and I and ate the chocolaty goodness that it was! We did watch the Blazer game, but sadly, they lost to the Celtics. At least it wasn't a blow out and they only lost by 15 points. It was a good game, though.
Saturday, we got our tree and put up Christmas lights. That was VERY interesting. I lost my voice on Friday so trying to yell at Husband and Nae on the roof was interesting to say the least. Plus everyone calling trying to get directions for the party, yeah it didn't go as smoothly as I would have liked. Oh well, everyone had a lot of fun making fun of my lack of voice.
Minnow and her boyfriend came into town and the girls all took over my roommate's bathroom to get ready. Poor fluffy Love. Fluffy Love isn't even a little bit of a "girly girl", so to have her bathroom counter full of make-up, hair dryers, straighteners, hair ties and all things girly was a sight to see. Once us girls were all ready and made up, we went to the bar with our party in tow!
We had so much fun! So many people showed up for our birthday. Drinks were consumed, pictures were taken, songs were sang, and presents were opened. My friends totally spoiled me! They rock! Sadly, I decided to torture everyone with my lack of voice on the mic and sang a song. I NEVER sing! I seriously sound like a dying cat when I do. It is best that I don't. But I figured since I sounds like ass anyway, I might as well. It's not like my regular voice sounds any worse, so why the hell not?! As far as I know, nobody got video of me singing, so hopefully everyone is safe from having to hear that again.
Today is my little sister's birthday. I'm so glad her and my dad were able to come and celebrate with us. We had a great time. Everyone made it a very special 33rd birthday for myself and made it a very special 32nd birthday for my sister, as well! We are loved!
