A lot has happened this past week. Nothing life-altering but it's been a busy few days. For one, yours truly celebrated her 28th birthday. As I mentioned before, I've been dreading this one but it turned out to be surprisingly nice. The day before, Michael found out he might be flying to Argentina for work. As in, found out that morning and would be on a plane that evening. We were both pretty bummed and then very ecstatic a few hours later when he found out his assistance was no longer necessary and the ridiculously long round-trip adventure was canceled.
On my actual bday, I received more phone calls, facebook messages, and cards than I ever deserved. It was like everyone knew I needed the extra love. I've always been a huge fan of bdays and it was EMBARRASSING how giddy I got every single time I received a facebook notification. It's the little things I guess. My favorite part of the day was coming home that evening and reading my card from Michael. When he found out he'd most likely be in Argentina on my bday, he put his card in the mail so I'd have a surprise when I got home after work. It made me so happy that I could give him a huge hug after reading such a sweet message. Oh how I adore my husband. Michael's parents dropped by that night and brought gifts and dessert. They are the best!
We ended the bday festivities last night (yes, my birthday has turned into my birthweek, and is slowly becoming my birthmonth) at the Melting Pot, where we ate our weight in cheese, meat, and chocolate. It would have been glorious if we weren't feeling so gross today. I guess there is such thing as food that's too rich.
In other news, we've had a chance to meet up with several friends. Last weekend we went to the Rangers game with Craig and Jessie. Our seats were extreeeemely high but right behind home plate! It was great catching up with them and the game was really exciting. By the end of it we were all on our feet and I was a yelling machine.
Yesterday I went to a baby shower (hosted by Karen!) for one of my new favorite people, Laura. She and I work together and her job is actually the one I accepted a few weeks ago (she has decided to stay home with her baby). So as hard as it is to know we won't be working together much longer, it's fun to train with her every day!
And today I met up with Kathryn, a friend from Fort Smith! We actually grew up together and she now lives in Fort Worth. It was fun to catch up and it got me excited for the reunion (which is good because lately the word "reunion" has stirred up feelings of angst and frustration).
There you have it! My best friend Emily is getting married this weekend and then Justin, Michelle, Evan, and the parents are coming in town the following weekend. I could not be more excited!
