A thankful me - 29

Hi.

So, ummm I don’t know what to do.

Do I pretend like today’s just another normal Monday where I go into all that I’m thankful for. Or do I overwhelm you with the fact that today’s my birthday and go on and on about it???

The latter? Yeah, that’s what I thought too!

Its my birthday!!! Hooray!!

I did just what I always do and set my alarm clock for 3:02am so I’d wish myself a happy birthday, before falling back asleep. A tradition I’ve done since I was a kid, and a tradition I’ll continue to do for years to come. On the years that I was able, I actually would stay up until 3:03, you know, to make it completely official that it was my birthday. But given that I have to work today, I went with the alarm clock instead.

What are my plans today, you may ask? Work. And then after? More work. Partially sad..partially planned. I figured since I’m alone, the last thing I want on my birthday is to be alone at home, where crying could very well take place. So I made sure to book a party tonight (I sell lia sophia) so I wouldn’t be alone. And what’s great is they all know it’s my birthday and plan on having a cake for me.

I couldn’t ask for better clients! And seriously, I have so much fun at the parties that its not really work at all.

So far, I got this iPhone case from Society 6. They’re such a great website for finding such unique and beautiful cases. G-man got it for me.

On Saturday, I had an appointment for a pedicure. I need to have pretty toes for my friend’s wedding that’s this weekend, so it was a must. 1/2 way through the girl asked if I wanted to upgrade my pedicure to deluxe or spa, so I thought what the heck, let’s go deluxe and told her. But then I had a ‘you deserve a spa pedicure’ pep talk and went for it all. Why not, right? How many times do we allow ourselves to fully get pampered?

I wanted to be left alone to fully enjoy it so I left my phone at home but it was such a cute salon {I say this for the lack of pictures}. They speak English and were incredibly attentive. My girl had only been doing it for 7 months, so she really made sure throughout the whole appointment that she was doing them just as I wanted.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes on Friday. I know I made it sound like it was over the weekend {unintentionally}, but I loved them all just the same! You guys definitely make up for not having the Facebook wishes. hehe

Thank you all for following along with me, new buddies and old buddies. I hope and pray 31 brings even better changes in my life than 30. …It just has to.

Happy B-DAY Gris. I love you and miss seeing you on your DAY. I still remember the time you ate the caterpillar and how freaked your mom was, half of it hanging out of your mouth, good memory. Also when you were in 4th or 5th grade and you competed in the state wide track meet and qualified to go to Ariz. You got to fly and the fam. (5) of us crammed in to that old Datsun P/U and drove 6 hrs. to get there in time to root for our Baby and sister, great memory! You are Amazing, have a great Party. We will and are thinking of you. Love Dad.
