I am now 24 years old. That feels like the big time to me...like I am really an adult now. But at the same time I don't really feel like an adult, even though I am married with a couple degrees and a full-time big girl job.
My birthday fell on a Sunday this year, so naturally I started celebrating on Saturday.
I had a gift certificate for a mani/pedi from work so I used it to treat myself to some spa time. It was the best nail experience I have had - a much nicer spa than I would have treated myself to. The lady who did it was so sweet and easy to talk to! She was just so friendly and peaceful! She was from Iran and it was interesting to get her take on the events that have been going on in the Middle East over the last ten years. She was so grateful to be in America and only wished that she could bring her family her as well! It made me appreciate the country we live in more.
When she found out I was getting my nails done because it was my birthday, she was so excited. After she finished my fingers she slipped the polish she had used into my purse for me to take home as a gift.
Then she moved me to the other chair to do my toes and left the room for a minute. She came back with cheesecake for me to enjoy while she worked on my feet! So thoughtful!!
The next day Michael brought me breakfast in bed and had me open presents before we left for church. We then had a yummy dinner at Grammy and Grandpa's house with the Murphy cousins and dessert at the Woodheads'! I was so spoiled!!
Later in the month, I had a chance to spend some time with the girls to celebrate! We went to dinner, ate yummy desserts, and went in our hot tub. I really don't see them often enough!! Girl's nights are just needed sometimes.
I totally felt like I was back in high school for a night and I loved it! Lindsay behind the wheel, windows down, blasting music and singing at the top of our lungs. So much fun and a nice break from the norm!
Here's to another year!! So far 24 has treated me pretty well.
