Happy Birthday to Me!

Today at 5:40pm, I will turn 26.

Crazy.

Even crazier is that this is the first year where I don't really feel any different. I think 25-27 seem kind of interchangeable in some ways. Or maybe it's that so manye of my friends are 27-29 and I don't ever feel like they're older than me, so I don't feel much older by turning from 25 to 26.

Anyways, it's my birthday! I stayed up kind of late last night watching Jimmy Fallon because the totally awesome Andy Samberg was on there. I'm pretty sure I'd marry that man. They performed "I'm On a Boat" live for the first time ever. It was totally worth staying up late to see.

I started my day with a bagel and then headed to my awesome hair stylist to get my hair cut and colored. It's not as big of a deal as it sounds. It was just time for a regular trim. And I had her do a semi-permanent color to match my natural color exactly... we were just trying to cover up the greys. Yes, I have grey hair. They aren't terrible yet, but it runs in our family to turn grey early... and I had enough that I wanted to cover them up. Even though my color isn't different, it still seems prettier in some way... richer and shinier. :)

I've been having a relatively quiet day here at work, and tonight I'll round out the celebrations with dinner at the Olive Garden. YUM.

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! My Facebook page has been blown up today, and it makes me feel very loved.

If you scroll down to the previous post, you'll see I've decided to join the 101 in 1001 bandwagon. I wanted to do this back at the new year, but I took forever to decide what to put on the list. Starting on my birthday seems sensible. I reserve the right to alter my list at any time, but I feel pretty good about getting started on this journey.

Here's to hoping that the 26th year of my life brings many good things. I'm ready.
