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!
