Blogs and Birthdays (both mine!)

I felt the need to make things a little bit more cohesive (read: matchy matchy) around here. I made a new title bar, and then made the little headers in the sidebar match. Fun stuff. I got rid of a couple badges and just put the link into the headers, so a lot of those are clickable, including the email one. I think it looks nicer that way.

I also added Twitter, because, let's be honest, I don't have enough ways to waste time in a day.

I was reading Miss Anne's blog, and she mentioned that today was her birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, btw!!!). I looked at the date (because I suck and don't remember what day it is now that I'm not working anymore) and I realized, holy crap, it's August 14th!!! My birthday is three days away!

Now, I knew it was coming up, with it being August and all, but I think that this is the first time in my whole life that my birthday is kind of anti-climatic. I'm turning 31. Thirty one is hardly a milestone, not by any stretch of the imagination. I had that big birthday last year. That was the one that I fretted over, that was the one that required planning and preparation, that was the one with balloons and flowers and confetti and cake.

This one? Eh.

It's just really weird to me, to feel this way about my birthday. Maybe it's because I've got so much more going on right now, and it's so much bigger, really, than anything I've ever done. I'm more fascinated by my stomach growing and moving around on it's own than I am planning where I want to go have dinner. I have so many more important things to prepare for than just deciding what present I'd like my husband to buy for me. I'm more excited about getting baby outfits than I am about getting a new "birthday outfit" for myself.

Tee shirts and Juicy sweats are more comfy anyway!

I think we'll probably end up going to Benihana for my birthday. I haven't been there in ages, and it's fun. I don't know if I want to go tomorrow or Sunday or just wait until next weekend. I guess I'll ask my husband what he wants to do.

Happy birthday to you! This post cracked me up completely. Tomorrow (the 16th) is my birthday (31 as well) and I totally forgot about it until my DH asked where I wanted to go to dinner. The pregnancy has definitely taken priority these days. Glad I'm not the only one! Enjoy your day anyway and try to do something for yourself. I'm getting my first prenatal massage - yay!

Ah crap! Not only did I forget it was YOUR Birthday, I honestly claim to be a birthday idiot, as this post reminded me that my MIL's birthday was 2 days ago. Ugh. But in my defense I had a surprise party for her when she was here and for you, ah dang I can't even claim the baby stuff package to be a Birthday gift cuz that was for Sawyer! LOL.

So Happy Birthday Girly!
