As the title indicates, I turned 29 again on Saturday. People kept telling me I was actually 30, but they don’t know what they are talking about.
This post is very long but I don’t care because I don’t care. Anyway, my second twenty-ninth birthday kicked off on Friday at work with some lovely gifts and treats, and a perfect card from my only staff member who will get a raise this year.
She gets it. I also received a pair of Super Genie Microfiber Cleaning Slippers (so practical! Just like Pippi Longstocking’s!) and a few balloons.
I never realized how much I wiggle and scoot around until every movement was greeted by the sound of a hundred balloons shifting about. Also there were cookies. I love cookies and I love my co-workers.
On Saturday my parents came to town to hang out and that night we headed to Top Golf for my birthday party that my wonderfully kind friends organized. It was a hell of a good time. It was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had. Unsurprisingly, we got started with a little bit of golf.
And then we had a wonderful dinner. Like the Kimye wedding, it was a feast for “the most remarkable people of our time.” If someone can consider Kardashians remarkable in any way that isn’t “remarkably ridiculous,” then this crew certainly qualifies.
Every lady needs a big ol’ balloon hat. Then, it was time for the most important part of any party. CAKE TIME!
Donut cake!!! All my favorite things. I was a good birthday girl and helped feed my poor pregnant friend. Gotta get that baby those extra calories.. I also didn’t even mind that the cake was in the shape of those inaccurate numbers. We also had a billion delicious mini bundt cakes and cupcakes that I will continue enjoying for several days more. It was quite the delicious birthday. Then, we took a million more pictures together because duh.
And then my dad decided he wanted to be in the photo too.
We didn’t even know he was back there. Such a sneaky man. As our golfing rounds ended, it was time for the most awkward part of all birthdays: opening gifts while everyone stares. I received several wonderful bottles of wine, chocolates, membership to the most important society on earth, and a grumpy cat shirt because I’m grumpy.
BRITNEY BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still can’t believe it. We probably won’t go until after Christmas, but I don’t even care because I’m so excited. After Top Golf, we went to Pinthouse Pizza and enjoyed a little bit more beer. Just a little bit. The most exciting part was that I finally got to have one of the Brewery Ommegang Game of Thrones beers, Fire and Blood. It was tasty.
It was a perfect birthday and I couldn’t ask for anything more. I feel very lucky and I’m so grateful for such wonderful friends and family.
