How was your Halloween? I didn’t do much that day, I went outside late in the afternoon to see the little trick-or-treaters, they were so adorable! I spent some time hanging out with the cats. Tubby and Felix almost jumped onto my lap. After a little bit, I stood out talking to neighbors and family friends. Our weather keeps changing, at the start of the weekend it was rainy, but the sun was out. It was a bit breezy Saturday evening but not that bad. Of course later in the week the temperature would rise back up again. My body is so confused! Am I the only one that is actually losing sleep over this daylight savings crap?? I was really tired Saturday night but I kind of figured I would get up kind of early that next morning, but not three minutes before one in the morning!! Sunday was my birthday and I was so tired!! I don’t know how I managed to stay awake the whole day, but I did.
The first person I saw early that morning was my mom, she and my sister had to work which sucked. However, I did get to see everybody. Around 11am, I got up and went on my Facebook to see that my wall was exploding with everybody’s messages saying “happy birthday” I think about ten minutes later I could hear my dad singing “happy birthday to me (to him)” and he came into my room to give me a hug and Brandon came in next to say “happy birthday” and my dad said “thank you” for me. I had a good birthday lunch, fish and cheesy, broccoli rice. Yum! My mom got home at 3pm and she came in–still in her scrubs–with my birthday card in her hand. For once I actually didn’t destroy it like I usually do to other card envelopes! Apparently my dad was the one who got me a brownie cake and card and my mom was the one who got me the Tower Speaker. It is what it sounds, it’s just one speaker tower that basically plugs into everything and mind you, I’ve been without a lot of bass in the past 11 months… So the bass queen is back!
I spent a couple of hours trying to get used to that and a little bit afterwards, Uncle Russell came in to give me his card which I thought fit me very well! If you can read it down at the bottom (the one on the left!) the inside says “I want to participate.” Around six, Tressa, Sammy and their whole crew came over with their gifts. I got to see Chey and Chevy the night before while they were dressed up in their costumes. They looked so good! They also had a LOT of candy in their bags! If I remember correctly, Chey and Chevy gift to me were my pajama bottoms. They’re a bunch of colors but the main color is pink. They’re fleece which is what i like the most! They are so comfortable! Oh and there’s a black skull on the upper left thigh! Tressa and Rex got me this painting type of thing, i don’t know what to call it. It’s basically a big tree with a skull carved in the middle of it. It also says “knowledge is life” it’s pretty cool honestly! Sammy’s gift though, I was instructed to keep it away from my mom because it’s a Wizard Of Oz picture in a frame. I love it! They came over as I was eating my birthday supper of mac and cheese! I finished my day with a small slice of my brownie cake!
On Monday, day two of celebrations, this time with my grandparents. We got Fish Hut for lunch. I got to have pizza, shhh nobody tell my Uncle David! My nana was so nice she made cinnamon rolls but used something that changed the coloring of the icing. It was yellow, orange and brown. I took two home with me! She also made these “Nana doodles” she put the same icing on top of vanilla wafer cookies. My mom, Blondie and Brandon went to the store for her and did her other errands while I sat out in the kitchen and talked my head off. I bet my papaw enjoys it whenever I leave, he probably gets better naps that way! Before I end this post, I want to share what I wore over there. I wore my flannel button-up shirt I got last Christmas from American Eagle and my leggings are gray and white; they’re faded a bit but that’s all part of their design! They certainly feel like jeans, they squeeze the crap out of my thighs! I don’t remember I bought them from either.
I have to say I really enjoyed my birthday celebration.
