Birthday Fun

Yesterday was my 28th birthday. I woke up to a phone call from my awesome boss, and when I answered he said, "Happy birthday, you old bag!"

(I love my coworkers.)

I got the day off, so I lounged around in my underwear until noon. Then it was time for Indian buffet with Shaun. I ate my weight in vegetable korma. Yum.

After that, we voyaged to Colorado Mills so I could buy myself some lucky red Chucks. I made the mistake of entering through Neiman Marcus Last Call, and fell in love with a red Matt & Nat bag. I justified the purchase by saying that I *needed* a new bag since mine is literally falling apart. I mean, there are holes in it for fuck's sake! Plus, I'd been eying M&N bags online for a while & this one was waaaay on sale. So yay. Anyway, on to the Chucks. Found them, and they were on sale too. Nice. I win.

Then I realized how odd it was that I was buying red stuff since I usually stick to black, grey and a little yellow here and there. A new birthday tradition was born. From now on, I'll buy a lucky red *something* every birthday. Unless this year turns out to be complete shit. In that case red can bite me. But I have a feeling my 28th year is going to be pretty damn amazing. I finished my list of 28 things to accomplish before I turn 29 (click to see it larger).

I should probably get started.

In addition to that, my New Year's resolution is to chill out and always be kind. No more unnecessary stress. Many more smiles. What about you? What are you going to do differently in 2010? Whatever it is, I wish you the best.



  1. Cheers and best wishes on completing your 28 things and much, much more good stuff. Incidentally, red is my favorite color, so I'm sure it will treat you right! :)

  2. Thanks! I keep thinking of more fun things I want to add. There's always next year. Red is awesome! It's definitely my favorite color right now, especially when paired with light grey and saffron yellow. Ooh, or aqua. Or brown and cream...
