I love my birthday. Every year. No matter how old I get. But I especially loved my birthday this year as I declared it two majorly exciting things:
1. The First Annual Trishmas Day
a.) how did it take me 29 years to come up with this?!
b.) declaring Trishmas Day means you also get to celebrate the ultra cool Trishmas Eve
c.) declaring Trishmas Day means you may get a beer named after you, if you’re lucky
(P.S. I actually helped “develop” this beer too. I’ll try to explain later.)
Yeah, I’m putting this on here again. #noshame
2. My First 29th Birthday
That’s right. I plan to celebrate 29 for the rest of my birthdays.
Simple. I love odd numbers (it’s no accident our wedding day was 7.9.11) and who wants to turn 30?! And 31 isn’t very exciting soooo 29 ftw!! Or should I say for the life?!
Celebrating your birthday at the very start of the “most wonderful time of the year” is not bad. Not bad at all. Oh sure, when I was kid I grumbled about getting joint birthday/Christmas gifts rather than a birthday gift AND a Christmas gift, but now that I’m older, I’m just grateful that I get to spend my birthday with the people I love.
This year was no exception. I worked on Trishmas Eve (p.s.that never gets old. at least not for me.) from 11-7, but when I got done, a bunch of my friends were watching the Badger game at my place of employment so I joined them for drinks & fun. As luck would have it, the Badgers kicked butt & are Rose Bowl bound once again so it was a dual celebration! We stayed until midnight, just long enough to ring in my birthday, & do a shot of tequila before heading home to
pass out get some rest.
This particular tequila was consumed in Mexico a few years ago. I find that when in Mexico & a few years younger, the tequila goes down a bit more easily…
Sunday morning, aka Trishmas Day, we headed to brunch where we met my parents, and a few friends.
It was all great, but holy sugar rush.
Hubby did the chopping, while Fielder & I strolled around a bit. We’re not much help with these sorts of things.
We came home, took a 20 minute nap, and then I put lights on the outside of the house while the hubby brought in our patio furniture. Better late than never, right?! I told you it’s been warm here!
What about you? Are you all about a huge celebration on your birthday or more about laying low and taking time to relax and soak up every first minute of your new year? As you can probably tell, I like a little bit of both. A meal and a few drinks with a group of friends is great, but I love me some down time. Especially these days when I don’t get much of it.
