Thank you

After celebrating my spectacular birthday all weekend long, I realized how lucky I was to have such a great set of family and friends. Though I don't usually get too mushy about my personal life, a lot of people did a lot for me and it made a lot to me. It gave me that warm gooey feeling that chick flicks give me. And yes, it made me tear up. So instead of continuing to celebrate me (I think we all had enough of that this weekend) I thought I'd dedicate this entry to the people who I'm thrilled to have in my life. (Note: this entry mainly discusses this weekend. If you're not in here, that doesn't mean you're not important to me.)



First, I'd like to thank Libby for transforming my dull cubicle to a pink wonderland. It has made long work days instantly more cheerful and peppy! Why kill ad people when you can stare at pink streamers and dream of ponies? It started my birthday off with a wonderful treat.


A pink paradise

Doesn't that just make you happy just looking at it? And confetti on the floor too! How thoughtful! (I left up most of the streamers. I gave some to Libby. I like to share my pink happiness with the world.)

Next, I'd like to thank my dear husband Ben. After working two night releases in a row, the man went.....shopping. That's right, he went shopping for ME. In a mall. On a Friday afternoon. In a women's clothing store. He is the epitome of every male hero in every good romance novel or chick flick. And he's mine! After buying me two gorgeous tops, he bought me The Holiday and Stranger Than Fiction. As if that wasn't enough, he bought me bellydancing lessons and even belly danced with me that night!

He shops and dances!

Just to clear up any confusion, I celebrated my birthday by going to a small local Greek restaurant with our friends. They have a belly dancer on Friday nights. The best part was that by the time she invited us up to dance, the entire restaurant had cleared out. First the girls just wiggled around, then the boys jumped in! Everyone was laughing, the owners were cheering and sprinkling dollar bills on our heads and Ben kept telling jokes. It was out of a movie, I swear. It was a dream come true.


I don't think we're quite getting it.

Next, I'd like to thank my sister. She sent a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, brought me another one (with a My Little Pony Balloon!) and spoiled me rotten. Isn't she cute?



Of course, who could forget Bryan and Candace? They're so cute and generous! Both of them were natural belly dancers. They could make a killing as a husband-wife bellydancing team. I just love them.

And as I wrap up my birthday gratitude speech, I can't leave out the people who gave me a birthday in the first place: my parents. Thanks for everything. It means the world to me.

***Don't worry Mama K, I haven't forgotten about ya'll! You mean everything to me as well! I just wish ya'll weren't so far away. Same for you, Lana and Corney!

Wish I would have lent you the video camera. It would have been an event worthy of seeing again.
