hey guys! it’s my birthday today! the big two-nine.
birthdays are weird. they are so, uh, self centered. i know, i know..i have a blog that i write about MYSELF, but i still feel weird about birthday attention. i do love birthdays, but to be honest.. they make me a little anxious because of the self-centeredness of it all.
instead of focusing on me, me, me in a post today, i decided to focus on all of you! i asked you to send in photos of yourself blowing out birthday candles so i could share them in a post. the photos came rolling in and i have to say that i smiled each and every time i saw a new blow-out photo. i laughed out loud on many of them! you guys are all so cute. thanks to those who sent in photos. enjoy!

my birthday has conveniently landed on a friday this year, so i will be having a BBQ with friends tonight! the day has been great so far (aside from that whole work thing)..
- i started my day bright and early at GPP—neil made sure not to put a single step of running in today’s workout. love it.
- i came home to a pile of presents (and a hilarious card) from marshall. i love that guy sooo much.
- my mom delivered 29 balloons (and another funny card) to my office!
- i went to lunch at pallet with my mom.
- my cute co-workers got me one more funny card, gifts, and the most AMAZING dessert of baked peaches & vanilla bean ice cream! so rad.
