Today is my birthday! 27 years old!
Tuesday morning I woke up to this on the bathroom mirror:
These birthday static clings have been in our family since I was little-little. I always LOVED waking up on my birthday and seeing the mirror decorated, so I was really excited that Dave and my mom collaborated on this one. To me, birthdays don’t exactly feel like birthdays without the mirror clings. Dave put this up Tuesday morning since I’d be down at work this morning (my real birthday). (Sisters, yes, Dave has the cake upside down. He didn’t know.)
Dave and I celebrated my birthday this past weekend, with the bed and breakfast stay and the half marathon. We celebrated my birthday on Monday night with Dave’s family – a burrito bar! We had spanish rice, corn (frozen from last summer), tortillas, guac, tomatoes, shredded cheese, taco turkey meat, homemade refried beans, spinach, sour cream, and salsa (made by Dave’s sister and her husband!). We finished it off with a cake Dave got from the grocery store – I LOVE store-bought icing and he requested extra for me!
Please note adorable little Lydia at the head of the table, with her tiny ponytail.
Today I’m in the office (boo, but I took off Monday). I’m heading home a little early so Dave and I can eat dinner together and hang out.
Do you have any special birthday traditions? We had the mirror clings, of course. We could also request our birthday meal of choice. I tended to go for macaroni and cheese with hotdogs (from scratch, not boxed) and green beans. And my mom made some really awesome shape cakes for us for birthdays – I’ll have to see if she can scan me some pictures to show you all! She was AMAZING!
