It’s my Birthday! I usually have mixed feelings about the whole aging thing. Don’t get me wrong I love the presents and of course the cake. Yellow cake with chocolate frosting is my fave. Sometimes I just don’t like the number. So this year, I am approaching it with enthusiasm, looking at all the positives and for sure exploiting the birthday things just a little.
My husband’s birthday is two days after mine so our birthdays usually become a 3 day long event. I started celebrating yesterday with a group run. Many of my favorite running buddies came out to run 4.5 miles in honor of my 45th. Yup turning 45 today! They very kindly brought muffins and homemade granola bars to celebrate. Love these ladies! I am gracefully embracing my new age group category as well 45-49. Hey it’s better to be the youngest in the age group right? I need all the help I can get.
Next I was off to get my free Birthday drink from Starbucks. I always think it’s so nice of them to bring out the “red cups” in honor of my birthday. I even went for the extra shot-I’m really living on the edge today.
Today, I’m having lunch with a couple of friends at the mall so might be tempted to buy myself a little birthday gift. I mean can you really have too many yoga pants or running jackets? Thankfully, my husband doesn’t read my blog too often so he will never know! I’m wondering what kind of surprises my family has in store for tonight? Do you think my husband remembered to make a dinner reservation somewhere? As long as there is birthday cake, I am happy!
Speaking of living on the edge, I finally entered the Instagram world today so please follow me and I will return the follow of course. I really don’t want to look like I have no friends LOL.
And now some exciting news: I’m honored to be chosen as a Skirt Sports Ambassador!
