I have to give credit to my family, friends and Derek - nobody has ever tried to combine my birthday with Christmas, let it get caught in the shuffle and most importantly... use Christmas wrap on my gifts (the horror!).
Other than a little bit of food poisoning over the night on Saturday (it was overnight so I'm throwing that back with year 26), the weekend was perfect. Although friday was suppose to be a "wrapping day" I got just one single gift wrapped, ha! Looks like today, tomorrow and Wednesday will be my days. We had an impromptu dinner and drinks night with friends on Friday before heading up to the big apple.
Derek and I spent the night in New York to celebrate and last night we went to my favorite Mexican restaurant with my family to celebrate. My mom nailed it with the decorations and everyone was very thoughtful and generous with their gifts. It's always great to hear from so many friends and family members near and far to celebrate the day. I was too busy enjoying cake (from my favorite bakery - always the same every year) and opening presents last night so I'll keep it short and sweet today and share about our time in NYC tomorrow.
I'm wiped from all the fabulous festivities and excitement - hoping to find some energy today to get everything done (well you know, all the fun things - baking, wrapping, Christmas movies). I've got a couple hours in the office today and tomorrow then it's all about Christmas break.
Happy Monday! Four days left!
