This is my 4th birthday with a blog. Ummm… WOW!
And now, lucky me, I get to share & record my 28th birthday in Melbourne, Australia(!) with you. And lucky for you (not me), we have a beautiful visual shot of exactly how I looked on the morning of my 10,232nd day on this planet. Courtesy of Mathew, of course.
Ahh yes. The act of sleeping. Top 3 of my most enjoyable things on this planet right there. Usually I use a pillow. Must have been feeling rebellious that morning.
ANYWHO, I was actually excited to go to work on my birthday this year, why? because I A) had a new, pretty, dress to wear, and B) wanted to see the lovely ladies I work with (*cough Katie cough*) FINE, and, because I knew there would be cake. Hmmm cake.
Everybody was so kind, and they surprised me with a gift card to Myers (like Macy’s) which I was/am so thankful for.
And then as it does, work finished and I went to meet Matt. Now. Now there are a lot of wine photos coming up. Do. Not. Judge. Me. Be jealous of me. Wine, especially Shiraz, is delicious.
After a bottle, hilarious chatter (always. and forever), a chicken salad, and a kiss (or five), I noted how we should head to the casino to make a gamble. I rarely slash ever gamble. Actually, it BOGGLES my mind how people gamble (especially slot machines), but I figured losing twenty bucks would be worth the experience… and? WE WON!
I placed a $2.50 chip on #3 (as Dec 3rd is my bday) and BAMN! I won nearly $200. So that was obviously awesome. And then, despite the cute, old, asian lady’s shock and horror as I was “good luck,” we left. Pretty sweet, I must admit.
Apparently I turn into a greasy spoon when I’m in a casino. Cool life.
THEN. Because this story is gripping your attention, I can tell, Matt and I walked along the river and admired the pretty city of Melbourne. Now. If I was being a (funny) asshole, I’d mention how Matt’s poor directions led to us walking an extra 1/2 an hour, which would have been cool & all, had *freezing* rain not started, but nope, not me, I won’t mention that because he made up for it by buying me ice-cream.
And taking me to a big, Christmas wreath.
And THAT, my friends, was my actual birthday day. Pretty simple, but awesome. I am a lucky girl, with awesome people in my life.
