In case you are wondering, I survived!
Yep…my birthday week…ok, 10 day celebration… was fun, fantastic and fabulous! It’s not every day that a girl turns 39 so I celebrated…in style! Let me just say that I have the best friends in the whole world and as expected, they did NOT let me down this year!
I not only celebrated with more lunches, dinners, and cocktails than I could have ever imagined, but I also got some of the best birthday presents ever this year…I guess it just proves that it never hurts to ask, right?
12 sessions of kick your ass boot camp
1 personalized cocktail made just for me
1 introduction to a very cute boy (who knows if it will go anywhere, but the intro was much appreciated)
1 beautiful necklace from my kids (thank you Ex, this act of kindness doesn’t go unnoticed)
1 fabulous dad that gives my kids money to treat me to a special birthday dinner/movie night
Umpteen birthday wishes via text and Facebook
Gifts promised, but not yet received
Several pictures of the “rear view” of one Mr. Ryan Reynolds that my friend Jane took on her trip to NYC a few years ago. No pressure Jane, just know that I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of those pictures in my mailbox…
1 coffee date with said cute boy
1 family dinner to celebrate the birthday that I share with my brother and his wife
Seriously, does it get much better than this?
Well, ummm, I’m gonna have to say… yes it does get a little bit better than this.
I know you are probably asking yourselves what could be better than 12 boot camp classes, 1 cocktail, 1 cute boy introduction, 1 necklace, 1 dinner/movie date with two very cute boys, umpteen birthday wishes, the promise of rear view pictures of Ryan Reynolds, 1 potential coffee date and one family dinner?
Oh yeah…A Dyson DC17 vacuum cleaner. And let me tell you, I am in heaven! I don’t think I have ever vacuumed my house as much as I do with this lovely piece of machinery.
You see, when your single, like me, you have to be the one to buy yourself presents on special occasions. Think about it who better to buy you a vacuum cleaner than you? Face it, you’d be pissed if your husband, fiancé, or boyfriend purchased one for you, but the excitement that comes over you when you purchase one for yourself. It’s like no other feeling in the world.
Hmmmm…maybe that is why I am still single?
