Gearing up with Granny Panties

Yep.

I put my Granny Panties on this morning.

I turn 27 today.

It is quite amazing to me how quickly time goes. I honestly feel like I just published this post. Last year's birthday was quite...interesting. I was traveling for work. And spent my entire evening by myself, in a hotel, quite sick on le toilette. Not so fun.

This birthday, I decided to make up for last year by getting wild and crazy. I mean, really crazy. For example, this morning, I have been working on a four page paper on how multiplication and addition are related. And then, I plan to go into work only to deal with one (or all) of the following: 1). bleeding 2). screaming 3). swearing 4). fighting 5). grumpy parents 6). colds/the flu 7). bad attitudes.

Wild and crazy.

But all kidding aside, it really is the simple things that absolutely make my birthday the greatest!

  • Take for instance, my sweet husband. I groggily walked down the stairs this morning, only to find this on the kitchen counter: (Funfetti is my all-time favorite!!! No, the cake has not been baked. And yes, I will probably have to bake it myself. But it is totally the thought that counts.) ;)

  • Or the fact that some good friends invited us over for a special birthday dinner.
  • Or the overwhelming amount of cards, phone calls, and text & FB messages I have receive from loved ones. And it is only a quarter past noon.

That's all it takes.The simple things to remind me that I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. And there are a lot of you. My 27 year old self loves each and every one of you!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! My 26th birthday was definitely very low key since we had just gotten married, but I definitely plan on being a bit more festive for 27! And I will also feel like 27 officially makes me a grown-up GROWN-UP...like no more hiding it or still being able to fit into the mid-20s category...but maybe 27 is still mid to late 20s...haha
