I am 24 today!

Today was my birthday, yay!!  Hence the late night update... I had a big day!  Actually, I had a fantastic day, despite a little lingering tooth pain :)

Because my mom is incredibly good to me and never judges my sometimes questionable eating tendencies, I got my Sausage McMuffin with egg fix this morning.  Waking up to breakfast waiting for you = success.  I also got to open an e-card from the boyfriend that was completely precious - a sleeping kitty wearing a crown!  It's gross how well he knows me.

Then I spent an hour going on a wild goose chase for the perfect glitter nail polish for my birthday.  Without going into too much detail about my sick obsession with nail polish and nail polish blogs, let's just say I was looking for a specific polish, which I unfortunately could not find.  But I found a darn good stand-in!

Blurry, but for anyone who is also obsessed (or even vaguely interested) this is Party of Five from Wet 'n Wild.  It was a cheap treat and after I bought it, I went home and gave myself a little manicure and pedicure.  In the afternoon, I went on another birthday adventure with my mom - I got feather extensions!  This is something I've been really interested in for months now, but was unsure and was working in a place with strict appearance guidelines.  But you only turn 24 once, so I thought why not, and got a few!

These are the most obvious ones since they are the brightest and towards the outside of my hair.

This little white one has a yellow and orange friend that are hiding - this bundle is less visible because it is the in the bottom layer of my hair.  No explanation of the face.

I am still a little worried about the white feather.  I like it, but don't want it to look like I suddenly got a really long gray hair.  Hopefully it will instead look suave and fashionablà la...

Stacy London...

... or Maxwell Sheffield.

I'm still getting used to the feathers, but I think I like them.  Next time I'm totally going for pink and turquoise though.  Post-feathers, mom and I did a little shopping, and then it was off to work for me... my first real meeting as a real receptionist!  It was actually really exciting, especially because the first member I weighed in got to goal today, which my mom said was a good omen.  I really like the people I'll be working with, too, which is wonderful.

After work, I came home to tuna casserole, one of my favorite meals, because my mom really is awesome.  Then I got to open presents which was thrilling.  I pretty much got everything I wanted because my parents spoil me, and I am okay with it.  I am now the proud owner of my very own Garmin Forerunner 305 (!!!) and INSANITY (!!!).  And luckily for me, tomorrow is my post-op appointment with the oral surgeon, so I can find out when I can exercise again.  I'm so excited to try the Garmin out!

I had a lot of really deep and introspective thoughts I was going to share about birthdays, and the depth of another year passing, and the importance of living each moment to the fullest... but all I'm thinking about is the adorably tiny and wonderful chocolate cake I just devoured...

... so I'll save the deep thoughts for tomorrow.
