Yesterday was my 23rd birthday (say what!?) and I had such a fun day celebrating with my Mom, brother, Ryan, & Sara. :o) I love birthdays – they are such a special day and a great reason to celebrate life. I especially love that I was an August baby – yay for summertime birthdays!
Yesterday sure felt like summer. I think it was one of my hottest birthdays to date! I think the high was 104 degrees – whew! We tried to stay cool this year.
Here’s my birthday documented with my iPhone…
It started with a morning swim (adult swim @ the local pool). So fun! My brother joined us for that.
Then we picked up Jimmy John’s for lunch. Turkey Tom- YUM!
Then I opened up cards/gifts. Ryan’s Mom, Sara, gave me the most thoughtful gift! Since I started student teaching in a few weeks (whoa!) she bought me a TON of (colorful) goodies like pens, pencils, notebooks, post-it notes, etc so I am at least half-way prepared. She put cute little notes with each one too. Ryan is going to buy me a dress of my choice & take me on a trip to Florida (if we have time?!) He knows me well! :D
Then we made iced coffee & took a little mid-day work “break.” I did my Organic Chemistry II homework (BOO!). It didn’t take too long thankfully, but I never have homework on my birthday!
We also made birthday cake pops – chocolate this time! Yummy.
Then we went to get birthday drinks & appetizers/salads at Sybill’s (local fine-dining establishment). I got the Dragon Berry Spritzer & Sara got the raspberry mojito. It ended up being our dinner. They brought Sara & I birthday desserts with a candle. Yes, Sara’s birthday is on Thursday – Happy Early Birthday!! We share the same birthday week so we get double the fun!
What a great day. ♥
