Birthday

Welp, another birthday, another year older. Shall we begin the special treatment?

Bahaha.

Birthday pomp and circumstance makes me a little shy. For starters, whenever anyone draws attention to me and sings “Happy Birthday,” especially if a Japanese drum and fruit boat are involved, I look like a beet afterwards. A card and a cake and I’m a happy girl.

When I found out that the Pilot took today off, I couldn’t believe it.

Then, he kindly reminded me that it’s Veteran’s Day and he gets the day off anyway.

I’m just glad he’s here… and that my favorite little gift and I will get to spend the entire day with our family of three (4 including Bell, who is convinced that everyday is her birthday and we should celebrate her existence)

    And that birthday clip is hilarious- it had me bursting out laughing while at work. I got a few “You’re crazy” stares from people walking by but it was worth it.
