they say it's your birthday...

matt made sure today was the

highlights from the annual celebration of the day of my birth:

it took a big breath to blow out the aromatic 26th birthday candle.

  • matt made me a birthday breakfast. my FAVORITE ... a bowl of crispy grape nuts, with fat free milk and a sprinkling of sugar.
  • CHEESEBURGERS from paradise. [in 'n out]

  • playing games. laughter and adrenaline rushes. there's something about a count-down clock. with some real stumpers - billy beane. billy mays. john wooden. erin andrews. catherine maladrino. shawn kemp ... but we made it through victorious
[honorable mention to chris crosby and tom swapp for stellar performances under pressure]
  • santa clause in chinese "shia-tay-dun-gong-gong"
  • watching animal you tube videos
  • thoughtful gifts from thoughtful people. anthropologie birthday boxes under the tree. new boots i love. mad men. a decorating book. a hostessing platter. a homemade flower.
hope your dec. 20 was merry and bright.

the birthday girl
