Sorry for the long absence… there have been a few things I wanted to post about (camping and my bday trip to the Poconos) but I haven’t uploaded the pictures and have been way too lazy to even bother.
However, to circumvent this – I took some pictures with my cell phone so I’d have something to share with my 10 readers. You’re welcome.
As you recall – I turned 30 last week. However, if you ask my mother, she’ll tell you I turned 31. Despite me doing the math – she still firmly believes that I am 31. Anywho.
I’ve been a bit of a curmudgeon this month about my birthday. I was feeling old and lame and just didn’t really want to make a big deal out of turning 30 (although had you asked me last year – I totally expected a giant surprise party with an 80s prom theme).
I took some days off of work because I refuse to work on my birthday. Jeremy took the same days off. I had no plans. I really thought I was just going to lounge around and maybe even hit up the pool or something. But Jeremy definitely surprised me on the morning of my birthday.
First – he gave me this…
I was quite surprised to get such nice earrings… especially since when he asked for my birthday wish list, I had things like a netbook, a juicer, a sewing machine and random books. When he handed me the small box, I looked at him and asked, “Are you proposing… again?”
He said that he wanted to get me something that would last a long time and not just a few years like the items I had on my birthday wish list. Now I have fancy earrings. Wahoo!
Then he handed me a red folder and said, “are you ready to see what I have planned for today?” and this is what I saw:
In case you can’t read it, it says
Have you ever wanted to sleep in a round bed???
Have you ever wanted to swim in a heart shaped pool???
Have you ever wanted to bathe in a chmpagne glass???
If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is your lucky day…
and if you answered no to all of these questions it is your un-lucky day
I hope you’re ready to party like its 1980!
Jeremy had booked a 2 night stay in the cheesiest hotel in the Poconos! And our trip to the Poconos deserves its own post (I have lots of pictures of the resort) but it was hilarious. Here’s a quick snapshot of one of our room’s amenities:
That’s right – there was a heart-shaped pool IN OUR ROOM.
The last gift…(actually, it was the first thing he gave me but in the interest of this blog it made more sense to post this picture last) was a t-shirt that Jeremy had customized for me…
If you can’t read it, it says
I’m not fat… I’m growing a baby
Happy birthday to me!
