Where have 31 days gone???

My birthday celebration was amazing! I have so many wonderful friends down here who went the extra mile to make everything special. I am so blessed! It started on last Thursday at the gym with a birthday workout class where I wore a tutu…cause who doesn’t wear a rainbow tutu to workout?? Complete with singing & laughs it was definitely a fun sweat session. We then headed over to a local craft brewery for food trucks & cake to blow out my last day in the 30’s. I pointed out to one of the gym owners what an amazing bunch of members they have at their gym to make a person’s day so special.

My actual birthday on Friday was great! My co-workers once again went above & beyond. Flowers, candy, little booze bottles–OH MY!!! Went out that night with a group that started at bar #1 for some drinks & to get going. Moseyed over to bar #2 for MORE drinks (probably not such a great idea in the long run lol) & dancing (probably a good idea but too late by then lol). People kept filtering in & out all night which was amazing to see so many friends. Bless my core group that got me home that night. Much love!!

Saturday was my friend’s 30th birthday party & she wanted a sunset booze cruise which was tons of fun! Probably about 25 people went & we had a great time despite the crummy weather. I definitely would love to go again when it’s nicer out. I refrained from drinking & instead opted to be a DD for me & Joe (NOT the douchebag creeper ex from 2 years ago but another Joe who’s a nice guy) since he had to leave early for work the next day. The crowd then continued onto dinner which I felt bad for the restaurant. A large mostly drunk group isn’t what they wanted I am sure on a Saturday night, but seeing as they didn’t have much business in hindsight they should have been a bit nicer to us. Probably why they weren’t very busy!

Sunday was a day of just bumming before going to see the Avengers movie. I went with the guy I had met for lunch last week. Rob is nice & I think we get along fine, but unfortunately it turns out he works out at my gym so that’s a big fat NOPE for me. We had no idea beforehand & of course figured it out while talking at lunch. Which means we also know several mutual people & such so I just won’t go there. I have seen gym drama go bad & have no desire to be a part of it. Plus I love my gym & it’s MY place to go to vent & relax…I don’t want to have to find another!

Monday I had off from work so Joe & I went to a theme park. Rode some roller coasters, had some laughs, enjoyed the day. Came home & binge watched some Jersey Shore Family Vacation episodes. OMG–those people make me feel so much better about myself!

Overall it was a GREAT birthday & month. I am not sure #40 will ever be topped but it sure will be fun trying!

Birthday = amazeballs

My birthday was Thursday & it was simply amazing! I was so surprised by how many people took a moment to wish me well. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends & family in my life. 🙏😘

My day started with my coworker decorating my desk & bringing in treats including a special lunch cupcake!! After work I went to the gym where I got to be the DJ & pick all the music. 😂 My trainer had made a deal with me a few months ago as a reward so I had been compiling my song list. Some of us had a good time, but I think my trainer was dying (we don’t have the same workout music taste 😆). After the gym I then met a group of my gym friends at a craft brew place that had a food truck! Dinner was so good. And then my friend busted out these cupcakes she made. 

Holy cow awesome!!! She’s so talented. What a truly wonderful day. Again I couldn’t believe how people went out out of their way for me. 😊 AND NO TEARS!!!

Friday was a good day at work before the holiday weekend. I had kickball (and more birthday cupcakes!) & it was the playoffs. We had to play Joe’s team which ended up being a tough game. I was the 1st to score & for awhile we hung on to the lead. Then disaster broke & we fell behind. Until the end when we loaded bases & cause they walked the guy ahead of me I got an automatic walk so we ended up WINNING!!! The look on their (ok his face!) was priceless as they went from jeering laughing to realizing my walking pushed in the winning run was classic. 👊 Not to mention my brothers once again had a target on him so he never got on base. Yeah they weren’t very happy about being eliminated. What can I say…I brought the CRAZY! 😜 Our team rocked out & despite a very long next game that was crazy WE WON!! 🏆 I’m so happy after previous early eliminations to finally win. Won’t lie…it feels good. And I actually played pretty well so double win!

Today I have been a bum & slept in. Watching tv. It’s my lazy day. Meeting friends for birthday drinks at a bar tonight so I need to eventually get going.

I just have to say though this birthday was pretty darn great! Much better than I could have ever hoped & I’m feeling ready for my last year of 30s! 😁
