Just a Quick Check In

So today I was born 27 years ago in Olympia, WA.

It has been a glorious day. A 5 AM workout. A McDonald's Diet Coke. Lunch out at Pei Wei.

I booked a trip to Big Sky, MT in January. I got the e-mail invite today. I booked a few hours later. I haven't been skiing in 6 years...this should be interesting.

Dinner out with friends at one of my favorite bars in Nashville. I realized tonight that I haven't been there nearly enough when the bartender and the manager told me they missed me. The bartender sent over a birthday drink for me. A Jack and Diane. Or a JDC. Or commonly known as a Jack and Diet Coke. My roomie got me a cookie cake! The picture can be seen here. I forgot my digi camera at home and I am still trying to figure out my new cell phone. They sang happy birthday to me. Another friend got me tickets to see Little House on the Prarie: THE (mother freaking!) MUSICAL! Staring Melissa Gilbert as Ma. I am beyond excited about this. I think it would be a little too much if I wore my bonnet, no?

In case you didn't click on the picture, I got a hair cut last week. A sizeable chop. And I love it.

When my mom was here in earlier this month, she brought me a bunch of birthday goodies from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I don't covet anything as much as I do my new Tory Birch black ballerina flats. THANK YOU mom! I also scored a sweet patent leather wide Betsy Johnson Belt and a cashmere scarf. And a very practical black North Face Fleece. My roomie got me a super sweet sandwich cookie cake set that ROCKS. My first (of hopefully many) cake pans from Williams Sonoma.

Last night I spent the evening at my favorite venue, the Ryman, seeing the Decemberists perform. It was amazing, minus that guy, yes that guy sitting in front of me, who yelled out "FREEBIRD" at the end of every song. Colin even made fun of him and he still didn't shut up.

In other news I haven't weighed myself in a month.

Unitl next time.
