It's my Birthday, and I'll Cry (Again) if I Want to

Today is my birthday. I woke up to a house filled with balloons. My boo never ceases to amaze me!
What a surprise!
After making my way through the balloons, I poured myself a cup of coffee and grabbed a freshly baked scone to enjoy by the pool. It was cloudy, but I didn't mind.

After some time at the pool, I decided to take a stroll through the gardens with my new puppy. He is already trained in every possible way and his puppy breath smells like whatever snack I am craving at that moment.
"let me guess...chips again?" How does he ALWAYS KNOW?
You get to the gardens through the back door. Obvi.
I decided since it's my birthday, it wouldn't hurt if I was a little late to work. I took Magic Puppy around the property and to the barn so he could do some exploring.
Magic Puppy promised to help keep the green grass green by not peeing on it. He just gets me.
After returning home, I put on an effortlessly chic outfit and headed out the door to work. Since my arrival, I have had one of the most productive work days of my career. Birthdays look good on me!

None of that actually happened. Well, I did wake up. I did get dressed. I did go to work. I feel more like this cat though.
I have that shirt.
Here are my real birthday thoughts, in no particular order:
  1. Adele has some nice herr! 
  2. A lot of images on pinterest are cutesy-animal related.
  3. Top search phrases that lead people to my blog include: double vigina, 27 double vagina, and cheri oteri sexy. I knew vaginas were popular, but double vaginas?? Also, surprised to see Cheri Oteri has a dedicated fanbase of people who find her sexy.
  4. After seriously wondering if I was pregnant due to the ever increasing size of my gut, I have started walk-jogging in the mornings. I am sure my whole 15-20 minutes (plus stretching!) will make me into a new woman.
  5. How do you feel about the term "value-added"? I kinda hate it. We use it at work a lot. That and "stakeholders". The people who hold the stakes.
  6. When I am asked whether I'd prefer Pat and Oscar's or Red Robin for my birthday meal, I want to run from my little corner of North Orange County to almost anywhere else as quickly as possible.
  7. My in-laws had a surprise party for me. It was DOPE because I didn't expect it and they made some of my favorite foods. I cried. 
  8. On the other hand: in-laws. Challenges remain.
  9. Cost Plus World Market has some good shit! I am still thinking about the goods I saw yesterday when I was wandering around waiting for my birthday brunch buzz to wear off. 
  10. Seriously? I don't even like Pat and Oscar's.
  11. All caps in a work email. How have all people not figured this out yet? I'M NOW SCREAMING AT YOU TO STOP SCREAMING AT ME!


  1. Girrrl, you so funny. Don't eat at Pat and Oscars or Red Robin, for my sake. They're all chain-y and Orange County-y and that scares me a little. Do continue to eat at Chipotle.

    I'm glad we share a birthday week! I seriously need to make a SoCal visit soon and seeing you is at the top of my list.

  2. Hey, Sweetie. Wish you were here. Sometimes it does actually suck to grow up. Happy Birthday, anyway. Love you. See you soon...?

  3. Kelly you made me laugh out load and I haven't even had my coffee yet. I knew that first picture wasn't your apartment, but for a second I thought Forest had put balloons all over your living room. Not your pool, but you do have a pool so it was still possible. But when I saw the puppy I knew I'd been had.
