I’m 35

2 June 2009

My birthday was last Thursday. The big 3-5. Ugh. I feel old. And yet not, at the same time.

I had a great day at work, if an unproductive one. There were two cards waiting for me in my office when I arrived in the morning – one from Shane and one from BB. He also left me this really cool picture that he and the boy had taken of themselves in a photo booth at the mall last week. One of my coworkers made this really amazing teddy bear cake. And, I had lunch with my two closest local friends.

Shane took me out to dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse. It was quite yummy. I love a steak, but I much prefer if someone else cooks it. After dinner we went to Best Buy to pick up a car charger for his birthday gift to me – an iPhone. I’ve had it for close to 2 weeks now and it has quickly become my best friend. I lurve it.

I learned Saturday morning that TechGirl had called in a gift certificate for me for at Yarn Barn. So that afternoon I did a little shopping for myself. After much consideration, I bought this lovely stuff:

That is Punta Yarns Merisoft Hand Paint. Very squishy and soft. I’m not sure if the color will look good on me, but I don’t care. I’m planning on making Shawl That Jazz. I’ll need another 3 skeins for the project, but since they only had 3 skeins in the shop, I’ll have to wait until they get in another shipment.

Thanks TG!

I received quite a few other Yarn Barn gift certificates for my birthday, so I see a lot more yarn and fiber purchases in my future. Yay! I love guiltless shopping.



  1. For the record, I told Shane Wednesday afternoon that I would be purchasing the gift certificate the morning of the 28th. He didn’t tell you til Saturday? 😦

  2. Happy late birthday! That yarn looks soooo squishable!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! And honey, you’re so not old. Hell, I’ve got four years on ya – the big 3-9 is coming up in just two weeks!

    I have iPhone envy! I thought they were silly for the longest time, and now I really want one. 😛

  4. Awesome yarn! I love Shawl that Jazz, good choice!

  5. That sounds like a great birthday! And the yarn… incredible. Love the colors, but then, I’m an absolute sucker for reds.

    BTW, 35 is nothing. My grandmother turns 89 tomorrow, and she’s celebrating at the casino. She’s not old at all (and you better not try to tell her otherwise…), so you’re a spring chicken. Now go have fun!
