In celebration of my birth, which was 35 years ago today

Last night, I couldn't fall asleep because I was so excited about my birthday like I was turning five instead of 35. I adore my birthday...but I'm sure most of you know that.


If you currently work on your birthday, I advise you to take the day off and spend it how you choose every year for the rest of your life if possible. It's a celebration of you being on this earth. I think you deserve it!

I never get weird about turning another year older...I have known too many people who have died too young to lament getting older. It is infinitely better than the alternative. I especially like the 0 and 5 years...they seem to warrant bigger fun.

Today MFD and I headed out around 9:30 to have breakfast at Honey's Sit'N Eat. It was too early for the frito pie, so I got a brisket omelet with fresh sauteed spinach and jalapenos. Whoa nelly. It was amazing. MFD got fronch toast (I am unable to say french even now, so many years after seeing Better Off Dead for the first time) stuffed with ham and cheese, topped with poached eggs with a side of salad. Seriously amazing fat ass breakfast.



After that, we tried to walk some of it off by trekking halfway across the Ben Franklin Bridge, which was really pretty cool. This was on my life list...I'm afraid of bridges and I have to say this wasn't too bad as long as I didn't look directly down. We didn't go all the way across because we were pressed for time and it was flipping cold. 


MFD dropped me off at the Breathe Spa in the Loew's Hotel, where I got a massage and facial. Everyone exhale with me.

 The rest of the day could have been droll, since we ran errands, but it was fun to just kick around together. We don't get to do that often, and I am usually running errands alone, which blows. It was cool to have a copilot.

We even had an Auntie Anne's pretzel at the mall and sat on a bench like seniors. As an aside, I hate the mall. I did get a roasting pan to replace the one I had to toss, along with some earrings.

Who gets excited about buying a new roasting pan on their birthday? I do.

Since we were running all day, we got provisions to eat here instead of going out to dinner. My hair has oil in it from the spa and I'd rather sit around in sweatpants. Hey, it's my day my way!



It was great to spend the day bumming around with MFD. The cherry on top was all the phone calls, texts, cards, and facebook messages I received from family and friends. Thank you all for thinking of me. Cheers!

Better than your average Thursday (and I'm off tomorrow too),
