All Good Things Must Come to an End

I am NOT happy that it is Monday.

Here's the update on the fantabulous birthday weekend that didn't seem to stop. Maybe that's why I'm mad. The party's over, people. Over. Hrumph.

Friday night, we went to eat at Hu Hot - the Mongolian Grill. I was disappointed that there was no raping and pillaging; I was hoping for a more vibrant experience. But the food was awesome and the free birthday dessert? It was crab rangoons - only they were filled with cheesecake stuff and smothered in chocolate. I shoved several in my mouth.

Please note the new layered "do." It's sexy. On Saturday, one of my friends arranged for a birthday cake to be made and brought out to Tallgrass, where we ate lunch (yummy!) and again, shoved dessert in our mouths at a high rate of speed. That my friends, is a Strawberry Trifle - the likes of which I have never had before. It was incredible.

Then we played games all afternoon! Saturday night, I babysat, which is always a treat for me. I loved every minute of it. And Sunday? Well, Sunday seemed to be the day that all the people in recovery who decided to go out and party over New Year's and then couldn't stop drinking again, came back to a meeting. There was much bawling and please-help-me-what-do-I-do-nows followed by the pancake breakfast at the legion (you see how much eating was going on, right?)

THEN? I made a purchase. But more about that tomorrow, because you have to see the pictures. I'm so very proud! In the meantime, I will suck it up and get through this Monday. The first Monday of my 36 year old existence. Pity is not necessary.

Can't wait to find out about the mystery purchase...

Shania said...

Nope, no pity here. Just a wee bit of jealousy. Over the hair AND the party AND the cake and probably the purchase too. I'll let you know.

Sorry about the raping. That really would have set the new year off right.

Oh well, there's always next year.

What a fabulous birthday celebration! The trifle looks too good to be real. And I do love the hair. Very sophisticated!

Am digging the hair, mon cherie. And the trifle? *salivating*

By your smile, I know you had fun! 36 yrs old??? Two things to make you feel better:
1. You don't look it!
2. I'm wearing underwear older than you...

It may be the first monday of your 36 year old existence, but at least you're starting it out with a damn sexy hairdo!
