Happy Birthday To Me!

I am 29 years old today. I can't believe it! My last year in my twenties has begun.

I generally do enjoy my birthday. We don't have a lot planned for today. Dinner will probably be here, which is where I have celebrated my birthdays since I was really little. For emotional reasons, I have always loved this restaurant. It is comforting to me and a reminder of years gone by. The meal is predictable, if a bit boring, and it's relatively inexpensive. My husband is not such a fan, so we only go here once a year.

I am pretty tired from my three days of convention work, so dinner might also come from here.

My husband's birthday is Friday, so we will go out to a nicer place then, and perhaps just consider that a combined birthday dinner. For a present, we are getting each other a video camera, since we thought it would be nice to have one to capture all of the Big Moments coming up. We are going to buy the camera this weekend, so I probably won't have any presents to open today, but it will be fun to go and pick out our gift together.

My first baby shower is at my mother-in-laws this weekend and we will be celebrating both of our birthdays with them on Saturday night. I will see my parents in two weeks when I am in my hometown for a work meeting and then stay the weekend for my second shower. This way, I get a lot of celebrating in!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I have to admit... the spaghetti place looked really yummy! But it's always nice to create new traditions. You're entering an entirely new chapter in your life, even a new decade in your life!

Okay like my husband hates Chi.potle but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! So I never get to go... unless it's girl time. So you could just make a new tradition with your Spagh. place.

Hubby and I always combine our birthdays (we're a week apart) since money is tight for us and it's always lovely. I'm sure you guys will have a lovely time on Friday!

And YAY to the video camera!!! You will definitely want one of those!

Damn you're getting old, LOL! In all seriousness, have a great birthday. Personally I am a spaghetti factory fan, since I'm always game for a cheap place with pasta.

Happy BIrthday!

Try the videa camera with a hard drive in it. It makes it so convenient for grabbing it and running out the door. No tapes or disks to fuss with. Then we back all the stuff up on disks anyway so that we can have empty space again to film more stuff.
