I was one of those crazies that went to the midnight premiere of Breaking Dawn part 1. AND. I. LOVED. IT. The special effects team did SUCH an amazing job on Kristen Stewart when she was preggers. She looked like death.
Thanksgiving was amazing as always with good food. I just sadly didn't get to spend time with my mom because she had to work :(
Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I don't believe in celebrating my birthday in one day. When I was in college, I would start celebrating the Tuesday of Thanksgiving week and celebrate all weekend long. Today is my actual birthday, so sometimes Thanksgiving will fall on my birthday. It has its pros and cons, like getting to celebrate for 5 days growing up, but never having too many friends to celebrate with because of the holiday.
Back in the beginning of November, a fellow blogger friend of mine, Kristina of A Perfect Dose of Life and I had this conversation via twitter:
@kmstreeter12509 I'm partial to Thanksgiving! I feel this pain every year! My birthday sometimes falls on Thanksgiving and gets forgotten!
So I told her my birthday. And I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to THIS POST on her blog in my reader feed this morning!
Kristina, you're amazing!
So what did I do to celelbrate my birthday weekend this year?
- Friday we had ice cream pie from Braum's at work. Then Friday night I enjoyed a relaxing night in, watching one of my favorite movies (Easy A) with my bff Shawna, eating pizza and drinking cosmos. Delicious.
- Yesterday, I dyed my hair (it's slightly red), went with my brother and two of my cousins to the Christmas train in Dry Gulch, and then went to my favorite dancing club downtown. Unfortunately, last night didn't quite go as planned, but I refused to let it get me down because IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! WEEKEND!
- Today, I am going to eat at a local Mexican restaurant with some of my coworkers for lunch in a couple hours.
Even though this weekend didn't go exactly as planned, it's still been a pretty amazing birthday weekend. I've gotten to spend time with people I love all weekend, and there's no better present than that!
