every year i have a great birthday - lots of fun with friends and coworkers, thoughts from family, adventures, reflections on life, birthday cakes, etc. it's my favorite time of year. maybe it's because i get to be the center of attention - but, really, i just love it when people get together to celebrate and be happy. for whatever reason.

this year, again, takes the cake (haha). everything about it was perfect - so many incredible friends, plans worked out smoothly, so much fun, so many laughs, so many "holy crap, i get to live this life" moments. i'm thankful. so thankful.

i'm blessed beyond belief.

(and i'm pretty sure the prescription of prednisone got me through the birthday...this cold should have kicked my butt...even that little ER asthma experience was totally worth it)

the last five hours...

...of being 30. i'm ok with that. pretty sure wings & He's Just Not That Into You will make it a fannnnnntastic last 5 hours.

illness is still doing what it can, but i can ignore that. tomorrow roommate & i head to the Happiest Place on Earth! (that's Disneyland)

life's good, folks. life's good. even at 31.

i totally jinxed myself and caught a cold over the weekend...i still live a ridiculous life, but it's not nearly as fun with a cough & stuffy nose. stinkin' illness.

it'll be gone by wednesday. i'm pretty sure i've never been sick on my actual birthday, so it has to be.

(i blame the cute 12 year olds in the pic below...)

how smart is your right foot?

This will boggle your mind and you will keep you trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!

1. Without anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY!!) and while sitting at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles with it.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction. I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

ski boots to flip flops

the weekend tourney was intense, and i took off for tahoe as soon as i could. the girls had worked really hard and i'm really proud of them...but we're not very good at winning games. and parents had a lot to say about it. and it's just intense.

after a full day on the slopes - legs completely worn out, arms sore from trying to stop my tumble down the mountain, cheeks pink from the sun - i realized how great my life is. i was going from my semi-comfy ski boots to my favorite flip-flops. i was refreshed, revived and ready to go. (but sleepy, so i needed coffee to make the drive home)

as i pulled in to my driveway, i realized that i'd completely avoided life for a day. it was fantastic.

now, how to deal with life...
