26'ed.

*Yesterday morning I woke up and discovered that I had lost ten pounds. Deb had left a half dozen cinnamon rolls on my doorstep...and Adam stayed up all night scrubbing the house top to bottom.  That's cause it was my birthday and things just go your way, you know. 
{*untrue}

Ah, hopes and dreams.

Well actually, i rolled out of bed pulled on my brand new shirt from my thoughtful husband {wink} and went to gain 10 pounds at the Farmhouse for breakfast were i took pictures of my husband and i eating {weird} with me sporting the same unwashed and untouched hair with green spray paint in it from Sunday (because i could!).

There began the foodfest that is an adult birthday. Here are the things i ate (as if my life depended on it) in no particular order:


1/2 of a steak and blue cheese panini
1 enormous cinnamon roll
1 biscuit with gravy
2 slices of sourdough toast
2 pounds of egg white only avocado and swiss scramble
3 slices of white pizza
4 cups of diet coke (oh the absurd contradiction)
5 mouthfuls of sweet potato salad
6 bites of chocolate cake
...aaaand an entire 12 ounce Nielsons chocolate malt custard.


All was well in my abdomen until i watched the low budget cheesefest that was Twilight (are you kidding me?) I was laughing so hard i nearly threw up. At home I returned to a sleepy husband and a clean(ish) house where i could ponder my day of celebration:

"Why, (my suffering digestive track pleaded) why do birthday's always amount to such uncivilized amounts of food inhilation?"
"Because, {croaked a tired yet trusty pair of spanx i was sporting under my skinny jeans} just because."


**Spanx...for a birthday feast that won't raise eyebrows. Looks like my birthday went my way after all :) Nothin' can stop me now! (cue tap dance).


yee haw i'm 26!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You little spring chicken. Never lose ten pounds. There won't be anything left of you.

Let's hang out again soon.

PS We are looking at houses in Higley Park. That means we could meet halfway and get morning diet cokes while we watch our kids play in traffic....

Happy Birthday! Too bad Twilight wasn't as good as we all dreamed! I hated it too....so sad.

So glad I could be part of your birthday feast fest! Twilight was movie of the year! What are you talking about?

now that's the look of a happy 26 year old gut. way to go bday girl. nothing like a strong dose of gluttany-sans the yokes- to make the day dreamlike. a strong index finger to the throat and the feeling of shame are the greatest gifts a girl can give herself.
