funf und zwanzig

happy birthday to me.

a year older, a year wiser, and yes, one year closer to winning the pillsbury bake-off and becoming a millionaire before i turn thirty.

the main event for today's commemoration (a trip to alki beach) was unfortunately canceled due to the reminder that we do not, in fact, live in southern california, and it rains here. a lot. we shall hopefully attend at a later date and time when the sun decides to return to our small corner of the country.

but not to be deterred, bryan took off work and jam-packed the day with birthday celebrations. he learned a few years back that putting the word "birthday" in front of normal activities makes them extra-special (really, it does). so we enjoyed birthday bagels, a birthday movie, birthday quarter-pounders, some birthday shopping, birthday smoothies, and other various and sundry "birthday" activities. topped off, of course, with birthday cake and birthday presents (hoorah!).

it was a good day. thanks to all who made it so.

opening gifts as summer attempts to plunge off the couch.

summer perusing the birthday booty.
