I love birthdays. Basically, I like any reason to have a party and a birthday certainly qualifies. There are so many different birthday theories out there, but my theory is to milk it for all it's worth. And, my theory is to start giving people a head's up about my birthday about a month prior to the actual day. That way there can be a countdown. And, that way people won't feel bad about forgetting, because the chances of them forgetting are much less. (-:
So, I had a pretty awesome birth month. Jeff and Eric from work got me an aquarium and two fish, which I named Shane and Shane. Shane and Shane are pretty awesome, and they love their cool new home with a super awesome LED light that changes colors. I know you want to see a pic. They are staying at the office so everyone here can enjoy them.
So that gift was fabulous. I even got to go with Jeff and Eric to PetSmart to pick out Shane and Shane. I mean, how cool is that? These are some more of my awesome gifts:
Okay, so you will see a beautiful black necklace on the table in front of Shane and Shane. (Thanks, Valerie!) Then I got some beautiful OSU orange flowers from the choir, and my in-laws got me those beautiful flowers. I also got a cool hanging plant for the apartment balcony (yay!).
And then I got this beauty. I LOVE it. I mean, first of all, who doesn't love aprons? Especially cute ones?! I am such a sucker for aprons. And this one happens to be from Anthropologie, so basically, I'm pretty fancy now. I have it on in this pic. Here's me and my boss - his family got it for me. yay!!
Isn't it so cute? Hmm.... yeah you can't see the bottom. Dang. Well, I'll take another picture of me cooking soon. And that little green/white string thing Jeff is holding is totally going to become a hair accessory in the near future.
The best birthday gift is coming today as Jeff is going to moon walk. I am pretty excited.
So, all in all, I had a great birthday! Yay!
