I turned 25 Feb. 2, oy vey! It's not that I feel like 25 is old as much as I feel like I'm too young to be 25...You'd think after being married for 3 years and being in my career for over a year now I'd feel like more of an adult. And if how we celebrated my birthday weekend tells me anything about myself, then I am most definitely a child.
Saturday we had breakfast at Disneyland - every 25 year old celebrates with Mickey, right? We had reservations at the Carnation Cafe and of course made it too late for Mickey Waffles, so to the River Belle Terrace we went! We spent the day loving the happy bright colors and amazing weather; we always go at night so it was fun to see it during the day for a change! We met up with Ryan's friend from work and his cute baby, and all of Ryan's dreams came true when we saw the Asimo the robot.
Sunday we went to Balboa Island to take the ferry and ride bikes around. It was Superbowl Sunday so the place was empty, which made it nice and also a tad creepy. Not that I am a football fan in any shape or form, but seeing all the families BBQ'ing and cheering to the game, along with a happy birthday video from Sawer, made me a little homesick. Holidays and birthdays always make me wish I had 18 kids to share the day with. Or you know, family in the same state. Either one.
We have a new unspoken agreement: he'll be in my pictures if he doesn't have to smile. Poor him, having a loving wife document his happy life. :)
I've recently picked up the esteemed hobby of coloring, which I take very seriously. My loving friends and family are very supportive of this new found talent, if I do so say myself, and bought me some supplies as gifts. So my birthday night was spent creating fine pieces of art, well spent indeed.
And last but not least, there was the traditional "surprise" cake at work on Monday. Thanks to Jen for these pictures of me and my boss-men peeps.
I'd like to say that future birthdays will be a little more adult-ish but honestly this was an almost ideal birthday and I hope I always get to celebrate this way :)
