At 8:12 p.m. today, I will officially turn 26.

And you know what? It's really just another birthday for me. I had freaked out about the upcoming birthday, but I'm cool with it. Being 25 was great, and I'm sure 26 will be even better. 

We did most of our celebrating on Saturday, when we went out with a bunch of friends. I'll have pictures and a full recap to come. 

This morning, we drove to work in this:

If I were still in school, I'd probably think it was the best thing ever. But anyone who thinks it's fabulous that I got "birthday snow" is wrong. Not only am I sick of winter, it's really bad where J is working today, and I just got a text that he is running two hours behind already. Great. Especially since we drove to work together today.

Anyhow, I am going to try to keep a smile on my face and be GRATEFUL that I have reached 26 and am healthy, employed and have a beautiful home and such fabulous people in my life. Seriously. It took me an hour to read/comment on every wall post on my Facebook. 

Oh, and I do consider the Packers win a huge birthday gift. And a Mizzou win over kU tonight would really be the icing on the cake :)


  1. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a lovely day! And, you got snow now...yuck...stay safe! Nothing but flurries up here glad because I can't take anymore snow! Yay for the Packers...great game last night! M-I-Z!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
