Well, it’s my birthday!! I wasn’t going to blog today because I really got nothing going on, but I’ll take this opportunity to blog about stuff. Nothing really noteworthy comes after this paragraph… No insight, no inspiration… Just me.. talking… Haha
So my day started off as well as could be expected…I woke up to the incessant buzzing of my alarm clock. I booted up my computer, flung through some junk mail, ate my Honey Nut Cheerios, took the dog for a walk, and got on my way to work. (Pretty typical, right? Nothing “birthdayish” here…)
So I had to change that. Given that today is my special day, I figured that I would change my daily mantra of “Strength, Patience, Courage”. For today only, I gave myself permission to repeat the following: “Screw budgeting. It’s my birthday. Splurge”. Turns out that that is really a great motivator to pick up all those key pieces that you’ve wanted for a while, but guilted yourself into not getting.
I’m telling ya… Guys, if you don’t go shopping on a regular basis, you don’t know what you’re missing. Girls, I know you totally get it. Such a great high. I drove home in disgusting 401 traffic, and it didn’t have a thing on me!! I just sang along to the radio, and mentally starting packing my bags for this weekend.
So I know you’re all wondering what I’m going to do now that I’m single on my birthday!! (ok, maybe a little presumptuous J) Well, sorry to disappoint, but today is kind of like any other day… the only difference is what I do the night of my birthday!! Oh yaa.. (don’t get too excited here).. If I was writing this blog on my 21st birthday it would probably have something to do with dressing scandalously, going out, doing shots, and picking up boys… On my 26th however, I will be going to the Pickle Barrel with my Grandma. And I’m really excited to do this; I love the Pickle Barrel!
If I’m being honest, the real reason I’m excited to do this is the fact that it just seems like so much work to get ready and go out on a worknight. And then there’s the inevitable hangover the next day that follows you around like an annoying little sibling that won’t stop poking you.
So, that being said, I’ll likely go out this weekend and have a drink too many... The next day, I’ll just dose the kid with Advil till he shuts up and goes to sleep.
Thank you all for reading my blog and making me feel so good on my birthday!! J xoxo
