A Very Merry Birthday to Me!!!!


September 4th—isn't that a cute day? Pretty sure I've said this lots of time, but I think it's a cute day. September 4th. And it almost always hangs out with Labor Day weekend which is a total birthday day bonus!

All I have to say about this happy 23rd (I've been getting mixed up on which number it is—hope it's not a glimpse into my near future. memory loss at 23 is a little premature, no?) birthday is that I've got some fantastic family and friends and a Superman husband. Thanks everyone for making me feel like a rockstar! It was awesome.

We did presents in bed (because we all know that's way better than breakfast in bed) and what did I open up? A new lens!!!! So in love.

I've got lots of fun Labor Day/Birthday adventures to share later. It was a great weekend away from work and school and unpacking (yes, we're still unpacking.... and boy do we have lots of crap!).


p.s. The first time I tried the milk-maid-braid it might have been a titch embarrassing. Jas kept trying to pin-point who it was I looked like—shouting out Hiedi! Princess Leia! etc... I let him stew about it for a while, but I knew exactly who he was trying to think of. "The He-She from that one Adam Sandler movie." His face lit up "Yeeeees!!!" And it was true. So this time I followed Miss Keiko Lynn and ratted my hair up to heaven and that fixed all my he-she problems.
