Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! The day was great. I went to breakfast with my mom, Drew, and my best friend Loren. Later my mom, Loren, and I went shopping. Then Drew and I went to an early dinner. I opened my presents from him and then some family and friends came over for cake and silly snacks.
And I have to say he did a really good job on the card.
the inside said "I'm glad you're around."
I am also the proud owner (thanks to Loren) of this new cat food and water bowl. I am having trouble finding an online place in the US to buy it but they had it at one of our neighborhood stores.
And lastly, there was the saddest cake in the world. And by sad, I mean pretty hilarious.
No, this is not an adorable-handmade-with-love-cake. This is what Drew ordered from Ben and Jerry's a week in advance and this is what they gave us and charged us for. They said the cake decorator never showed up so the 15 year old (ok, maybe not actually 15) shift leader took a crack at making it himself. Hmmm... Did I mention the cake was ready over 4 hours late? we will be seeking our refund shortly.
Every year my mom normally provides the cake with a wacky (usually rhyming) birthday message about the year before and this was Drew's version. My big thing was the self employment, hence the "Freeeeee".
So yeah, a pretty good day :)
