You may remember a post I did last week about my birthday. Now that the dust has settled, I've finally had a chance to sit down and write about it all. I tend to get super excited about my birthday - booking the day off work, enjoying cake and presents, and making an excuse to see my friends and family as much as possible. This year was no different. It may not have been exactly what I'd been hoping for.....but parts of it were nice nonetheless,
It all started on Friday - my birthday! Since I had the day off, I started off the day with a good workout. I was feeling great....until I came downstairs to find that my mom had come down with a cold. She was in a miserable mood. Alas! The bulk of my day was then spent doing my writing work. Sigh. Later in the evening, my family and I went out to dinner with my fiance to the local pub. It was a decent meal and it was nice to get out of the house for a bit. After that, we came home, opened a few presents, and ate some cake.
The next day, a couple of friends and I went downtown to go clubbing. I had really high hopes for the night, but it ended up not being my favourite experience. It's not a big deal - these things happen. It just felt a little disappointing. The theme of the night was Spice Girls. Since it was my birthday, I was Posh Spice, of course! That part of it was definitely fun. That day was spent catching up, getting ready, and doing a little bit of dancing.
These are a couple of pictures from my birthday....presents included!
I love birthdays. There is nothing better than getting out of your daily routine and letting loose. I am very grateful that I was able to do that this year - even if things weren't perfect.
