Birthday Things

July 12, 2012

How is it not Friday yet?

I’ll tell you, having your birthday on a Monday then taking Tuesday off to take 3 naps, get a massage and eat red velvet cake totally warps your understanding of what day of the week it is.  I could’ve sworn yesterday was Thursday.

Here’s how my birthday went.

Birthday breakfast.

Birthday rain.  And I didn’t even mind.

Birthday flowers from my lovely co-worker Amanda.  She didn’t even know tulips are my favorite.

Birthday pink.

Birthday nap.

Despite what you thought, I actually turned 60 on Monday and spent my birthday night at a Beach Boys concert.

Two concerts at Red Rocks in the past 2 weeks means a lot of stair climbing.  398 stairs to the top, my friends.

Guys, the concert was AWESOME!  The Beach Boys played 51 songs, sounded just like their CDs and had a crowd of thousands up on their feet dancing.  I would be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly out of control during Surfin’ USA.

I grew up listening to the Beach Boys and seeing them in concert was like a lifelong dream come true.  And they totally lived up to my dream.

Like I said, on Tuesday I took 3 naps, got a massage and sat around for hours reading, but I did manage to try out a new birthday present.  Unfortunately, new running shoes don’t give you the ability to suddenly run longer or faster.  Bummer.

Birthday dinner.  My mom is the best.

Birthday dessert.  No really, my mom is the best.

Surprise birthday present.  Totally didn’t expect to get a Kindle but I love it already!

Needless to say, my birthday was a success.

Also needless to say, I’m totally ready for it to be Friday.


What is your favorite Birthday dessert?

Are you a Beach Boys fan?

Are you a Kindle user?
