another birthday means that I'm twenty-err...

This year on January eighth, my mom called me, it was my birthday. And that was it for the phone calls.
sad. right?

Not really. My Andy made the entire week an amazing birthday extravaganza. Every day was another surprise and it was an unbelievable, never ending, gift giving week. I was blown away.

Every other morning, or at night when I would get home from work, there, on my pillow would be a birthday gift surprise. Jewelry, fancy drink ingredients, Ugg gift certificate, a note inviting me on a day of shopping for new running clothes, wii games and on and on and on....

Because my birthday landed on a Tuesday this year, Andy decided to make the Saturday before my birthday, my day long birthday party day. So, on Saturday afternoon, after our day shopping, a group of friends joined us to see Juno. That night we had a small, casual wine, cheese and hors dourves party. Good music, good food, and good friends. A perfect way to begin a new year.

It wasn't over though. On Tuesday, my actual day of birth, I worked half day, went shopping...again with Andy and then he surprised me with a romantic dinner at Soriah's.

And that's a little bit about the day I turned twenty- err...yeah. It's tough to get that number out of my mouth, or type it on the page. Oh well. That's that.

how was that not on my calendar?! I guess they don't put spouse birthday's in the Gutenberg directories, and let's face it, sometimes I forget that you weren't a fellow student, since you were such an honorary member of our class. Perhaps Soren and I will mail you a belated birthday masterpiece - read: card with lots of crayon scribbles.

Aw, that sounds so lovely. I am glad it went so well.
Good games, eh? Good. Maybe I will come over and play those! :)
Glad your birthday was so fun and that your man is that thoughtful.
I will call you sometime soon and try to schedule sometime to hang out.
Love,
me.
PS. i was the anonymous who said to "UPDATE!". So thanks for that :)
PPS. I thought about signing this as anonymous too so that you would be doubly confused. Although I am sure you could eventually figure it out.

You really shouldn't post stuff like this, it makes the rest of us look like fucking schmucks! ;)

Happy birthday! May it be a year full of good things.
