Yesterday I turned the big 2-8. I know this doesn’t sound old to some people, but it is the first birthday I’ve felt old. And tired. And cranky. I usually am thrilled to celebrate my birthday, but not this year. I have wrinkles now!
My co-worker* helped brighten my outlook, however, with a bouquet of balloons 🙂
The majority of my birthday eats were consumed quickly via tupp-faux-wear containers, as yesterday was the first day of summer school. Last year I celebrated in Paris…
turning 27 was a whole lot more fun than turning 28!
But back to my birthday eats, WIAW style.
Breakfast was a little un-overnight oat action: raw oats, 1 T chia seeds, splash o vanilla, 1/2ish cup organic blueberries & a little cinnamon. Mixed cold before I left for work, and consumed on arrival.L
Lunch included leftover Mexican(ish) quinoa salad and lemon chiffon yogurt.S
Snacks included carrots + Greek yogurt dip*
*purchased on clearance, Miss Smart would be proud!
and an awesome strawberry shortcake cupcake, that another co-worker (Thanks Shan!), made me. I neglected to take a photo, but it was reminiscent of this:(source)
Dinner was a little Flying Goat action (duh). By the end of the day I was exhausted and had no energy left to do anything other than open gifts (below), read my book (Water for Elephants, meh) and have a casual dinner.
*perfect for my half-marathon this weekend!
The hubs also got me The Borrower, a tale about a Librarian who kidnaps a 10-year-old boy obsessed with reading to save him from his over-protective crazy mother. It looks really good 🙂
What was your most memorable birthday?
