Number 38.

It's a birthday! Two, actually. It's my birthday and The BFF's birthday, liptonrm! We're birthday twins! Except she's a year younger than me and she never let's me forget it, lol. We celebrated on Saturday, with The Nephew, opening his gifts from last weekend and our gifts from this weekend, together. Our real celebration was Comic Con though, obvs. And yesterday my mom brought me a giant piece of triple fudge cake, so I'll have that with dinner tonight!

On Saturday, The BFF asked me how it felt to be 38 and I groaned at her and yelled, "Not for two more days!" But then she pointed out that I shouldn't begrudge every year older I get, I should celebrate it, because I have made it 8 years past what the naysayers said I would. As a kid, everyone always said, "She'll be lucky to make it to 30." My parents told me that a lot - (the horrific parenting there is a topic for another day). Idk where in their ass they pulled out this arbitrary number anyways, but here I am at 38, still going strong! Well, maybe not strong, but stronger than even I expected!

So, indeed, a day to celebrate! And now, my yearly baby picture! I swore I posted this one before, but I went back through my bday posts and it seems not, so here you go...

I apparently labeled this one 'Buckethead'. It must have been my superhero identity as a child - Buckethead!


I have already gotten so many nice birthday messages and love from you all, thank you, my lovelies. It is a beautiful day out here and I hope it is a beautiful day wherever you all are too!
