They Say It's Your Birthday...

No, wait... It's my birthday.
Just look at all the cards I got!

It was a nice quiet birthday, just what I wanted. I did get some pretty sweet goodies, though.

Ex-roomie Jessica and her mom stopped by last night and we went out to eat. Jess gave me the funniest gift... It was bag full of all the things that I love, but are bad for me. A 2 liter bottle of Sunkist orange soda (my favorite), a giant Hershey bar, a bag of Cheetos, some tasty coffee, and a cute little penguin mug. I've already had one square of the chocolate, a hand full of Cheetos, and two glasses of orange soda. Moderation be damned!

After Chris got off work today, he gave me my gifts. The first was Chocolate Monopoly. It's Monopoly, but all the pieces are chocolate! So fun. There were also some other goodies, like Twizzlers (the pull 'n' peel kind, of course), a Hello Kittly marshmallow pop (I have an unhealthy love for Hello Kitty) and a sweet little snowman globe.
The big gift was this American Eagle bag that I've been coveting for about a month:
As you can see, I looooooove it. I immediately dumped my other purse out and put everything neatly into my new plaid bag. I'm going to take it everywhere with me. Yaaaaaay!

After presents, we went to my favorite fast-food place, Goodbird's, which only exists in Statesboro, but has the best vinegar fries in the universe. My Birthday cake wasn't so much a cake as it was banana pudding... which I still haven't eaten any of.

All in all, a lovely Birthday.

Tonight I'm going to finish up some Christmas gifts and get them wrapped, then crawl into bed and read until I fall asleep.

Since it's my birthday, I'll leave you with my favorite song in the entire world. The Dire Straits "Romeo and Juliet" from 1980. The video is quite ridiculous, but the song is amazing.

And if you're into it, my favorite live version of the song.

Sounds like you had an awesome birthday.

Vinegar fries? My brother insisted that I try them, but I still haven't. I am addicted to vinegar! :)

So glad you had a good birthday. I love your new PB. I love the picture that Rischa put up of you holding your birthday cake that Mammaw made for you. You were so cute and happy looking. Shelly favors you to me. The Anderson blood runs think.

Love ya Lots, BA
