I had a fabulous birthday! A big thank you to everyone who sent wishes by card, email, facebook, myspace, blog (my sister blogged about me!), or phone call.
Party! I made my own cake. Chocolate cake with chocolate pudding and cherry pie filling between layers, and whipped cream with crushed up oreos on top.
Fabulous presents! My honey bought me a laser crystal thingie that sits on an existing base and lights up in various colors. (I don't know how to describe it, but here is a similar picture.)
Free food! I had signed up with a few restaurants and got coupons for free/discounted food for my birthday. Then my sister sent me a link that lists even MORE free birthday goodies, so I will be seriously well-fed next year. This year's completely free items, no purchase required, were a Del Taco shake, a Wienerschnitzel corn dog, a Like-it size creation from Coldstone, and ice cream from Baskin Robbins.
Very little birthday depression! I thought it interesting that no one voted on "Thinking about how little I've accomplished compared to how old I am" in my poll, because that is something I have struggled with every year on my birthday since 2002. It wasn't too bad this year though.
Lots of other crazy-fun stuff happened and will continue to happen over the next few days, but you get the idea.
