I get it from my mom. A very childlike excitement for birthdays. When I was a little girl I was at my friend’s house and her dad came in and said, “When you grow up, you will learn no one really cares if it’s your birthday”.
Wow. Thanks Mr.
Luckily that didn’t affect me TOO much, and I still get excited about other people’s birthdays.
One of the unexpected discoveries of marriage is that your husband’s birthday is just as exciting as your own! Maybe even more so, because no one sings the annoying birthday song to YOU, but you still get to revel in the party atmosphere.
ANYWAY, yesterday was Nate’s birthday, and it was awesome.
Just kidding. Of course I let him win because it was his birthday. What kind of a wife do you think I am!?
Then Nate went to work, and I went shopping. For some clothes. For myself. I had to celebrate, it was Nate’s birthday!
Then we went out to lunch. At Costco. We are so glamorous.
Then we went shopping for and got ready for Nate’s birthday BBQ and filled our car!
