Yesterday was my birthday. Another year has gone by and I have, inevitably, become another year older. I see more wrinkles and, particularly in these pictures, I look a little tired and old. I'm cutting myself some slack because... well I don't know why, but why hate on my birthday. Ha!
Thanks to everyone who called, texted, facebooked me. I felt very loved by everyone. The fam and I went out to dinner with Jami at one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh, but I was VERY disappointed in my food. It's a shame and I probably won't be going back. If you know me, then you know I love my food, so having a crappy dinner on my birthday really bummed me out.
We came home after dinner for wine and cake. Jami and I partook in the wine and we all had cake.
I also got some awesome presents from George and the kids.
Including a waterproof case for an iPod shuffle to wear while I'm swimming. Funny I don't have an iPod shuffle.
Luckily I got one of those too! It's pink. LOVE!!!
I also got a Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop Jersey. I wanted one to remember Texas. Mellow Johnny's is Lance Armstrong's bike shop and it's in downtown Austin. I'll think of Texas every time I wear it.
Jami bought me this awesome cake. It was right up my alley because it was chocolate cake and the icing was whipped and not too sweet (just like I like it). It was a smores cake, but to me it didn't have a smores taste. Not that it mattered because it was still awesome. I may or may not have eaten it again for my lunch.
For my birthday, Jami even agreed to be in a picture with me. It only took 17 years for this to happen. (Jami hates, hates, hates to have her picture taken.) I do have one other picture where we are side by side, but I actually got an arm around me! It's a birthday miracle.
