Well, the cracker backdrop was not such a hit after all.
As for other news, today is my birthday!!!!!!!!!!
I am the biggest fan of birthdays ever, I just love them!
I started celebrating with a birthday eve dinner at Chick-fil-a and a night of Merlin (if you aren't watching this, you better start!), and I went to bed just after receiving my first official happy birthday-a midnight text from Jesse.
This morning was filled with lounging and brunching- french toast with O at Magelby's (they have the best syrup there), and of course birthday calls from all of you as well as Justin Bieber, Usher etc (thank you to the National Cancer Foundation and Lauren for arranging those), after which I got ready for the day in the most leisurely of fashions, I even went the extra mile and put on my party lashes. I decided not to go to work on my birthday and instead went to the lab (where I normally work) to have some fun while enjoying more birthday good wishes-by this time I was starting to think I was really something special :)
My evening was filled with more delights. My parents took us all out to my fav Mexican restaurant for gift opening and dinner (this is the only day of the year I can get people to this place).
The parentals had another surprise for me, a very spectacular birthday gift....
These two are total bike fiends and they searched all the bike shops for the perfect fit. In the end, they decided I had better come choose it myself. After riding them around the stores, I finally made a decision. Doesn't it look great!
watch for me and ET riding around the universe-I'll certainly be posting more bike riding pics soon!
My night ended with O's parents singing me happy birthday over the phone. After a day full of birthday calls, texts, FB messages, thoughtful gifts, and non-stop fun, I am reminded that I have the best friends and family imaginable and I must be the luckiest person in the world!
Thank you all for making my birthday so great!
