Happy Birthday to ME!

That's is my birthday. Today I turn 33 years old. I'm not one to shy away from saying my age. Probably mostly because I feel proud of what I've been able to accomplish in my 33 years. I'm comfortable with who I've become, I'm happy with most of my decisions that have gotten me to the point where I'm at today, and I've made a life, which so far, has been fulfilling and purposeful. I'm married to the absolute love of my life who makes me a better version of myself and has the patience of saint. Mr. Allan has taught me more in the first year and a half of marriage than I ever imagined. He's my perfect partner and I love that man to pieces. I have a great family..a mom and dad who are fantastic and two sisters that I know will always be my best friends even though sometimes we cat fight and do the infamous two sisters team up on the other. I have a job that I enjoy and I think I'm good at, even though I'm sitting at my desk kicking myself that I didn't take the day off to enjoy as I look at my pile of cases on today. Overall, not to toot my own horn, but I feel pretty damn good about 33.

I'm excited to get through this work day, hopefully enjoy lunch with my sister if the aforementioned is accomplished in a timely manner, get a quick work out in since my favorite dress was fitting a little too snug for my liking this morning which sent me into a cranky little tirade, made my hair come out weird and fluffy this morning since I couldn't get over the fact that my favorite dress was snug and poor Mr. Allan was just trying to make my birthday morning great with cats meowing their birthday wishes and a cup of coffee he made with not too much creamer..just the way I like it. It's been a rough start..even now that I'm at work I unpacked leftover fruit salad..since that dress was tight!..only to discover that the fork I remembered to pack is probably sitting on the counter where I left it and of course there's not one to be found in my whole office building, so I'm eating my lovely low cal breakfast with a knife. Yup...this morning's crankiness is all because of that stupid stupid Ann Taylor dress!

But...putting my tight dress aside I'm excited to welcome in 33! I'm excited to see what this year will bring. 32 brought great things and some becoming credit card debt free. I can't wait to celebrate with Mr. Allan tonight and make 33 an even more fabulous year than 32!


  1. Happy Birthday!! Screw the tight dress and enjoy your day!
