Happy 25th to Me!

Friday was actually my 25th birthday. I didn't post anything about it until now because I hate birthdays. Not other peoples, just my own. I feel like it is just a very awkward day because to you it is a sort of holiday, but to others it is just another day. I think we grow up as children getting spoiled with all kinds of attention, presents, and parties and slowly the magic just wears off and for whatever reason they always end up a little disappointing because no matter what it is never going to be as good as that 6th birthday party.

Although surprisingly this birthday did include balloon animals. I know crazy...but you know all those random toys in the grocery aisles you see? I have always wondered who the crap buys them. Well now I know. My sister does. She bought a balloon twisting set while she was here and after some very unsuccessful attempts, I did make a great new puppy dog for myself. The best part? No peeing and pooing!!!

Anyways, I do have to say that this birthday was actually pretty good. I took the day off on Friday and I'm actually off today as well. Michael woke me up at 4AM when he was leaving for work and I deliriously opened my gift from him. He actually picked out a dress for me! Surprisingly, it was the right size, color, and style. Good job Michael!

I promptly went back to sleep until a decent hour and then spent the day making a cake and other Easter goodies. Every year my mom makes me a strawberry cake and since shes not here this year to do it, I decided I would make my own. I do have to say it was pretty darn good.

My dad and sister came up for the weekend. Unfortunately they got here later than expected due to some pretty bad tornadoes in their area. After they made it here safe and sound we went to a hibachi place and had dinner. The next night my dad cooked out for me per my request and we had yet another fabulous grilled creation. I had a wonderful weekend with my family and I really appreciate them coming up to spend my special day with me!

Today Michael and I are supposed to be heading to the outlet malls to do some birthday shopping for me. However, sadly last night my Grandmother passed away and I believe we will be heading to my hometown either today or tomorrow. My Grandmother was 95 and I do believe her passing away was for the best. I will post more about her later though.
