Today is my 35th birthday! I woke up with a yucky headache, hoping that wasn't a preview of what my later thirties have in store for me. Before 8:00 the phone rang several times, my husband (already at work), my mom and my dad wishing me a happy day.
Walker woke up singing happy birthday to me and we celebrated last night by baking a cake, so naturally we both had to have it for breakfast. He ran into preschool this morning telling his teachers and friends it was my birthday so I got wonderful wishes from them all.
My Facebook page and Twitter account filled up with wonderful wishes from friends and family. (I think one of the best reasons to use Facebook is you never miss a friend's birthday)
My creative agency left me a present in my office chair. A really cool stack of colorful paper, some embossing stencils and a little embossing tool. They know me so well. I spent time this morning playing with it at my desk instead of diving into work. It's OK, it's my birthday.
My co-workers took me to lunch. I got to pick the spot - Neomondes - one of my faves. The hummus was a little bitter today, but the conversation was fabulous. We laughed and gossiped and didn't want to come back to work. I had to call my husband to remember Phil Ford's name (assistant basketball coach at UNC). With three UNC fans, I had to call a Duke fan for that. We couldn't even figure it out using two iPhones and one Blackberry (and yes, the iPhones had service).
Headed to a Durham Bulls baseball game tonight with my family. Hubs gave me an Anthropologie candle and Converse sneakers. We're going to my fave restaurant tomorrow night for dinner too.
So far, 35 ain't so bad.
