The Birthday Review

I survived my birthday!

I woke up early to a puppy who was suddenly uninterested in sleeping.  Yet managed to sleep the rest of the day and night.  I mean, seriously.  Like babies, it's a darn good thing puppies are so stinkin' cute!

But then a good song came on the radio.

Guess what I did next.


I got out of bed (I am NOT a morning person...remember that) and danced!  True story.

Right there in my bedroom in my pajamas.  I danced it out.

Weird?  Perhaps.  But it started my day off right.  Not sure if it was because it turns out I am an amazing just-got-out-of-bed morning dancer or because it was so against the grain for my normal routine.  Who cares really.

Then I went to brunch with District.  At a local tea house.  Which only served to remind me of a little surprise party I was given once upon a time by my sweet girlfriends in DC.  Which then of course made District and I profess our love of DC and confusion over how we never met given our many overlapping friends and further confusion over why we live here, in the North Pole, instead of there, in the land of awesome and preppy.  We have this exact discussion at least twice a week.  It's our thing.  We like to dwell in our lust for where we once lived and bitch about where we live now.  It happens.  (For the record, we both secretly like where we live now.  But I mean, it will never be as awesome as DC.  It just won't.)

I ran errands.  I colored my roots.  Back to blonde, the way God and science intended.  I chatted with friends.

Then I met some of the sweetest friends out for dinner.  Laughed a lot.  Ate a lot.  Laughed more.  Held a baby.  And came home to my fur baby, sleeping soundly.

As expected there were a few bumps in my day.  But overall, I have to say this was one of the best I've had in a very long time.  I am ever so grateful to my wonderful friends.  I struggled for so long to make good friends up here.  And now, my cup runneth over.  I hope I never lose an ounce of gratitude.

A special thank you for all of your sweet wishes here, on Twitter and on Facebook.  I so sincerely appreciate every last one!

Cheers to more laughter than tears, more love than heartache, and more photos to remember it all!

YAY! So glad this year your birthday was a success!! You needed that lady!! Plus, I love that you danced in the morning! Sometimes, just sometimes, the BEST song will come on my radio alarm so I may do the same thing. It totally starts the day off right! That and awesome fur-child snuggles. Can't get much better than those! :)
