I got a package in the mail from my mom-in-law last Friday, which I was guessing was a birthday gift. And I thought to myself, I can't wait 5 days until it is ACTUALLY my birthday. I decided I was going home to open it right then and there.

When I got home, I announced my intentions, to which Jason promptly replied that I couldn't do that, since it's not my birthday yet. And I answered that, short of there being explicit instructions forbidden that course of action, it was my package, and I could open it whenever I wanted.

So, yeah. Still haven't opened my present yet ...


Well, it's something to look forward to. I have big plans for tomorrow ... I am going to spend it with my absolute favourite person in the world: me. Oh, and also my husband and my good friend Kirsten too ...

Here's my schedule:

  • 09h45 Picking up Kirsten for breakfast at The Copper House Restaurant at 10h00.
  • 10h00 Breakfast at The Copper House Restaurant with Kirsten.
  • 11h30 Putting on all of my Germany clothes, watching the Germany-Spain FIFA semi-final and practicing cursing in German.
  • 13h30 Go walk the downtown strip and see how many free things I can get just because it's my birthday.
  • 14h15 Going to see Toy Story 3 at the local theater where you get a free ticket on your birthday.
  • 16h15 Cashing in my Free Starbucks Drink on your Birthday coupon and chill out with Kate in the air conditioning for a while.
  • 17h00 I think I'll go get a pedicure and get little flowers painted on my toes - although haven't decided yet. If it is stupid hot out, like it is supposed to be, maybe I will go jump in the lake
  • 19h00 Jason and I are having dinner ... don't know where ...
  • 21h00 Going to the other Starbucks in town and seeing if I can convince them to give me a free drink, since it's my birthday.

It's gonna be the best 32nd birthday I ever had ... of course, I do also plan to carry around a bag of Fudgee-Os for the whole day and consume the entire thing in order to console myself regarding the age mentioned in the previous sentence ...
