As I mentioned on my day late Progress Report post, Saturday was a busy day. It’s taken me a little while to sit down and post on here about it.
I got up that morning and finished up what needed to be done around the apartment. Then my friend Crystal came and we went to get my hair did. She gives me the gift of great hair for my birthday every year. After that, we had a late lunch of Mediterranean food. We parted ways after that (she was supposed to attend the party that night, but her back started hurting her and she had to miss out on the festivities).
Then my house guests started showing up. First, Laura arrived, baring a cross-stitched mustache and some mustache cupcakes.
Then Annie and Diana got here. Annie gave me a Victorian mustache cup for my birthday!
And finally Sara arrived. Then Laura, Diana and I went off to get food. We got back with pizza and chips and stuff for breakfast the next day. We all hung out and ate and were in general very silly (as usual). Then we set up all the beds so we could just crawl in them when we got home from the party.
I tried to call the cab company to come pick us up at this point but they would not answer the phone. Finally I had to give up and called my friend Lindsay, who has an SUV and had offered to drive us there earlier in the week. She picked us up and we were off to the party!
Oh and when we get there, Lindsay pulls this out of her car!
After that it was wild times and mustache mania! It was great. Another successful birthday! I’m a bit embarrassed at how drunk I got, especially with some coworkers who don’t normally come out with our gang, but thems the breaks.
Sunday, which was my actual birthday, was spent recovering. I stayed in my pjs all day. After everyone left to go home, I went back to bed for a few hours. Then got up and ate leftover junk food and watched movies on Netflix (Rainbow Bright and the Star Thief and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to be exact).
Still, all in all I am blessed to have had such an amazing birthday yet again. Till next year!
