My birthday was a few weeks ago. And I'm not saying this to be modest, but I really did not care one bit. As always now for special occasions, I want some time to myself to do something that is relaxing. I also want to spend time outside with my family. That's pretty much it. So Saturday, we went to Sauvie Island and met the Thaynes. It was beautiful; I wanted to stay there for a few days.
My actual birthday was a Monday, which is a busy day with work, school, school, and soccer practice. I worked most of the day, and attempted to read for a few minutes in my room as a present to myself. Only lasted about 10 minutes. Nick came home, quickly made some German Pancakes, then my parents took Briz to her soccer practice, while Nick and I went shopping. Nick was very frustrated with me because there wasn't anything in particular I wanted so I didn't make the shopping very successful. I think its just as fun to look as it is to buy! I ended up buying a big kitchen pot, some cutting boards, some wrapping paper, and a small bluetooth speaker. I keep trying to convince Nick to let me put my saved money towards travel :)
