I turn 22 today, though every time I think about my birthday I think of how I was actually born really late at night, like 11:50 pm or something, and how I might as well have just been born on February 1st. But oh well.
Saturday I celebrated my birthday with the family - out to dinner and back to the house for some apple pie and presents (a gift card to the movies and two sweaters, one of which I am currently wearing). Mark and I also went ice skating on Friday night, which I wasn't really in the mood for and kind of spoiled the evening. Obviously I still feel a bit guilty about that.
Today so far we went out to breakfast....and opened presents....
Ta da! I'm so excited! It is a beauty.
I've had in mind that this was going to be my gift for weeks now. Well, not necessarily a Nook, but some sort of e-reader. Mark tried to throw me off by telling me that he looked through some of them and that they were too expensive, and he almost had me believing that he really didn't buy one until he brought out my gifts today. He also got me a case for it as well as a case for my macbook. I feel so tech-y right now, it's pretty exciting!
My class got canceled today too, so it's been very nice and relaxing so far. When Mark gets home from school I think we're going to go to the mall and then out to dinner to my absolute FAVORITE Mexican restaurant and stuff myself full of chips & salsa and a gigantic chimichanga.
Birthdays are usually so anticlimactic in my opinion, but I have to say, this one is going quite well so far!
