Is it bad form to tell the whole world that it's your birthday? Oh well. Celebrate with me! Since I firmly believe that I'm only as old as I act, happy 12th birthday to me all over again...
I've been celebrating since the 10th, when I had my first party with my sister-in-law, whose birthday was the 4th. Everyone gave me either money or gift cards, so I bought a ton of books and DVDs for myself on Amazon, and I've had packages arriving every few days. The celebration will culminate next weekend when my friends come over for a bead-making party, a party shared with my dear friend Carla, whose birthday is day after tomorrow.
As for my immediate plans? I took today off of work (yay!). I have big plans - sewing, reading, watching Gilmore Girls on DVD. Tonight I'm making chicken cordon bleu for dinner, because I love it, and I haven't made it for a very long time. We'll also be having Girl Scout cookies and Rocky Road ice cream for dessert.
So happy birthday to me! Party on, people!
