Birthday Recap

As far as birthdays go, this year's was one of my favorites 
(and that's competing with a Disneyland birthday)
First of all, I didn't have to work! I'm not saying I don't like working (I love my job), it's just that it seems like I've worked on my birthday for the last eleventeen years. It was fun having the day off.

The morning started with me dropping Cam off at his job waaayy early.
He tricked me and I was totally surprised by a super fun breakfast party at Denny's instead!
Have you tried their holiday menu? Pumpkin pancakes! Uhh... YUM!
Candace, Kaesi, Britt, Cam, Tay, and me were there:)
It was so crazy and I was totally surprised.
(Did I ever tell you I lurve being surprised?!)

Although this may look like a gravy-covered meatball, I assure you it is not. This is a red velvet pancake puppy with cream cheese frosting. What's that? You're heading to Denny's right now, too? See you there.

And then much presents were had.

The best part about this present is that it came on accident. 
It's the George Harrison book that inspired the recent Scorsese documentary on George's life. 
I had made a request for the DVD, and Camaron thought he had ordered it for me, 
but upon delivery, Cam realized he didn't quite order the right thing. I love it.

When the book arrived, Cam quickly ordered the real movie, but it didn't arrive in time, so I ended up unwrapping Megamind* with the receipt for the soon-to-arrive George DVD.
  (he didn't want me to be short a present)
I honestly thought Cam had gifted me Megamind.
"Wait, don't we already own this movie?"
My reaction. In real time.

Other favorites of the day:

My teacher-sister, Bethany, called me and had her whole class sing happy birthday to me! 
Those 3rd graders gots pipes! It was sooooo cute.

My besty Alyssa made this for me. 

Got a call from the other besty (with an original song, of course)

Ate lots of yummy food. Lots.

Then, Cam and I watched You've Got Mail while eating Sour Brite Crawlers:)
 Yes, shopgirl is diggin on my nail polish

...And I'm in AZ right now!!!!
Bet you didn't see that one coming. I'm here for my cousin's wedding. 
It's so great to be back home (twill always be home). 
I miss Camaron, but it is soooo great to be home!
