As you may have seen last week, Friday was my birthday! I love my birthday, especially because it gives me a good chance to spend time with friends and family. Last week was a little hectic, with a busy schedule at work and the last minute preparations for my birthday plus that of one of my coworkers, one of my college roommates, and my mom, all is quick succession. But, by the time Friday rolled around, the preparations were nearly done and it was time to begin the fun!
I was lucky to receive many texts and Facebook messages from friends wishing me well on the big day. Some people say that Facebook alienates us from our friends, but I think that's definitely not true on your birthday! Ginny's kids, who I think of a bit like nieces and nephews, also made videos of themselves singing Happy Birthday. They're on my FB page if you want to see them, and they're so cute I cried when watching them at the office! And basically every time since... It made me feel very special to know so many people were thinking of me even though we weren't together!
the world's coolest Coke machine. They also gave me a present which was truly perfect!
I had the chance to duck out of work a little early on Friday afternoon, and I definitely took advantage! I headed over to Caribou.
In the evening, I had the chance to go out for dinner with two of my dearest friends from grad school. We went to the Macaroni Grill!
All in all, Friday was a wonderful day that made me feel very special. And the fun didn't stop there. I went to bed on Friday night looking forward to Saturday's adventures!
