26 and counting

Yesterday was my 26th birthday.  It was my first birthday living away from home, but my mom came to visit so I still had a home-cooked meal.  I spent the day at the beach (pretty sure that’s a first for me too).  We had the most perfect weekend here – 80s and sunny everyday.  It’s really the first nice weather we’ve had this year so we spent as much time outdoors as possible.  On Saturday, I used my firm’s tickets to go see the Tigers and the Phillies.  We have season tickets to the Phillies spring training games so we take long lunches and go to as many games as we can.  I kind of have an amazing job.

For my birthday, Ben got me a GPS for my car and 4-day passes to Disney World which I’m hoping to use soon.  I also got the 6th season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer so I made them watch the musical episode with me while I sang along.  🙂  My dad sent me a plant which is now brightening up my otherwise plain office.

I seem to be at the age that a calm birthday is just what I want.  No more crazy nights at the bar involving way to much alcohol.  I still love birthdays and was mad that I got screwed out of a full 24 hours thanks to Daylight Savings Time.

Not much else new with me.  I’m pretty busy at work.  Still reading A Girl Named Zippy but I should finish soon.  Then maybe I can finish up some other half-read books.

    Happy belated birthday! I've been at the age for calm birthdays ever since I can remember. I've never liked being the center of attention and, even though I'm in college, I've never wanted a bar night for my birthday. I had to be dragged out to bars on my 21st birthday and still ended up at a smaller party at a friend's apartment. Glad you had such a nice birthday!!!

    My 21st through 24th birthdays were insane. And I enjoyed them at the time, but I'm happy to just be with a few friends now. 🙂

    Happy Belated Birthday, Michelle! It sounds like you had a great birthday. My 21st birthday in Dercember was kinda crazy, but now that I've had the cray birthday, I have to agree with you and say that I would like some calmer birthdays now. I'm seriously jealous that you have some pretty consistently nice weather, haha. I hate Michigan/Ohio weather around this time of year!
