So, it's December 10th today, which means my birthday is officially over this year. (Sad!)
Nowadays, it seems like I'm never very excited about the fact my birthday is approaching, until I'm one day away from my birthday. And then I'm bouncing around with excitement and uncontrollable happiness until my birthday ends. Which is probably silly, since I never do anything for my birthday anymore. Would I like to have a party? Of course! But I'm horrible at arranging things like that. So quiet nights in with the family and the boyfriend were my plans this year. Which was nice and relaxing.
My birthday started with me going over to my boyfriend's house the day before, spending time with his family.
My boyfriend, by the way, is completely insane in winter time. With the temperature nearly in the single digits, and snow everywhere, my boyfriend was completely fine with going out and shoveling in shorts. Shorts! He later completely passed on putting on a coat when he took his dogs out, then only wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt. I was freezing just looking at him!
His family made me a delicious pre-birthday dinner of fajitas, and I spent the rest of the night playing video games and watching Netflix with the boyfriend until the clock reached midnight. I also talked the boyfriend into taking pictures of my outfit (which I think he agreed to only because it was nearly my birthday!)
So, anyway, at midnight my birthday began. And the boyfriend had me close my eyes, and gave me my gifts!
A beautiful bouquet of 24 roses, a bracelet, and a necklace. They were absolutely gorgeous! The pictures don't do the jewelry justice. I am in love with this bracelet and necklace. The bracelet especially, since I've been staring at it nearly nonstop since I got it.
I was pretty dead by this point, so shortly after the milkshake, I passed out. Fast forward to ten o'clock in the morning, when I wake up to my boyfriend offering to make me a birthday breakfast. Of course, I happily agreed. Scrambled eggs, bacon, and pancakes were prepared, and they were delicious.
We left shortly after breakfast to spend time with my parents as well. They gave me some birthday money (which will help me out a ton with buying presents for people!) and made me a delicious meal later of porkchops with potatoes, corn, and rolls, and then birthday scotcharoos for dessert! (Which they still put a candle in for me to blow out. Aww. ♥ )
And another outfit picture. No face this time because it was blurred out anyway.
Over all, a very relaxing birthday filled people very dear to me. One of these years though I will throw a formal masquerade party for my birthday. And it will be awesome.
What are your plans for your birthday? I need some ideas for next year!
