Gorgeous, right??
I turned 40 on the 23rd. It's official, I'm old. Really, I feel 25...on the inside. I had a FANTASTIC birthday. My family threw me a surprise party. They pulled it off too, I had zero idea! I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was. (I'm still picking confetti out of my hair.) Family came in from hours and hours away which made me feel like a million bucks. I sat opening gifts like a 10 year old girl and I felt like a spoiled princess. I got a Keurig! I got the yellow Fiestaware butter dish! Hooray! I could go on and on but I don't want to make you sick. Ha!

Did I mention that I fell on the ice and am now wearing a cute splint on my stupid right wrist? Sigh. I'm beginning to feel quite unfriendly towards winter.

What else is going on? School is kicking my ass and I'm going on vacation tomorrow. You'll hear all about that soon, I promise!

Have a great week, you wonderful and beautiful readers!

  2. Oh, please go on...make me sick. :) Did you get any, dare I ask it, BOOKS? :) And no, I don't know if you did mention that you fell on the ice and that you're wearing a cute splint on your stupid right wrist...until now. But hope you feel better soon.

    1. I received ONE book. Most of my family are way too chicken to buy me books, lol.

      Thanks! I'm trying not to use my right hand much. (As I sit here typing, ha!)

  4. I'm so glad you had an amazing birthday! I love that you're so stoked about your butter dish. :) I'm ready for winter to get the heck out of here too! Ugh. Winter.

    1. I'm easily amused! Or my life has such little meaning that butter dishes do it for me? Let's go with the former!

  7. My birthday was 27th & Amy Bromberg's is around then, too. I've noticed several other of my online bookish friends have birthdays around now. Hmmmm. maybe that's why we all love books and get along so well! Hope you had a great day & it looks like we have a lot of the same reads currently and coming up? Did you read Black Moon?

    1. There's something about Feb. birthdays isn't there? We're all pretty awesome, lol.

      Black Moon, Black Moon...no, that doesn't sound familiar to me. I'll have to look it up!

    2. I would not suggest reading it. I was very disappointed.

    3. I actually did go look it up on Goodreads and saw your rating ;) I'll steer clear!

  8. Happy birthday! Good to know I'll still feel like I'm in my 20s ten years from now, because I definitely do not feel 30. Most of the time I still feel like I just left college (which happened almost 8 years ago). And yay for the surprise party! I'd never be able to pull one off. I actually helped with one this past weekend and even though I just showed up a little early to help (and of course had to keep my mouth shut for the past couple months... in front of someone I see maybe once a week) it was still pretty stressy.

    1. My family was so relieved when it was all over! Apparently it was a complete nightmare to pull off, lol. They must adore me :D
