Please forgive this. I usually have several birthday celebrations to report.

Age 5 bday party
Please note my sister's awesome outfit to the left, my brother's relaxed posed in front, my mom's sexy shoulders, and well as the macrame planter in the back.  I love 1982.

There exists a common adult sentiment that bemoans how birthdays are never as they were during childhood.  There was usually one big party with friends and relatives and if you were lucky enough to have a "school year" birthday, you may have enjoyed a cupcake party with your classmates.

I think childhood birthdays are bullocks.
I mean my mom did a great job, don't get me wrong...but adult birthdays are WAY better.
  1. Booze.
  2. More money to spend on yourself.
  3. Mainly booze.
But the very best reason why adult birthdays are superior is how many times I get to celebrate - the upside to having such extended friends and family.  Last night, I doe-eyed asked my loving husband to take me for ice cream as the beginning of such celebrations.  Nice that we live less than a mile from some of the best ice cream in the city!

So...look what I did for (1 of) my birthday(s)!
Joel got the Scout Mint (girl-scout mint cookies in mint!) 
I debated between my favorite Strawberry-Balsamic, but I settled on the Cherry Chunk (think Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia, only fresher!).  DELISH.

If you live in Seattle, you no doubt know the Molly Moon's craze...but if you don't and are planning on visiting Seattle and like ice cream, do it.  All the cool kids are.

Today so far (which is the actual day) I've:
worn more eye-liner than necessary
indulged in half a maple bar 
received lovely white roses from my awesome coworker (and friend), Stacy 
and looking forward to several tasty pints tonight.

Bday posts to come:
Spa Day
Family Party
Joel's mysterious gift.
Packages and letter to arrive.
