b-day week recap

I must say, it turned out to be a fab-o birthday. 

I decided to 'celebrate' the entire week.

I ate what I wanted.

I did what I wanted.

I DID NOT work out!
(That's unusual for me, it was kind of an experiment. 
More on that later.*)

I got cards, I got IMs, I got phone calls, I got invitations to eat (hee!), I got emails.

My favorite barrista Abbe put a happy birthday message on my Starbuxs cup.

Speedy baked me cookies!
He had to ask the neighbors how to do it, (burnt most of 'em), how cute is that?!

Lindstroms cooked me dinner!!!  
Tri-tip, rosemary roasted potatos red potatos, lemon pepper asparagoose. 
We went to Baskin Robbins for dessert!
oh yum!!!

Lindstrom's cute girl made me this:

A Scary-Cute business card holder!

I got happy mail!

Penny sent me her 'Best of Jimmy Eat World' compliation 
the cutest post-it notes!!

Shannon made me a oiishi-des slow-cooker pot roast, mashed potatos, and asparagoose!
We took a ride in her new hot rod guessed it!  
Baskin Robbins for ice cream!!!  

Other highlights from this week:

Got my hair done.  I love my hairdresser Sonya, 
Rockstar Hair Goddess!

I received trade cards (and a Starbuxs gift card!)
from Gemini Jen whom I met over at SiStv!
Sooo cool!
I gotta get my cards for her in the mail asap!  eeek!

I also took a half day vacation from work on Friday to volunteer at the King Library downtown
@ Books Aloud
which provides audio books for the blind and other disabled.
This project was for Disney's Give a Day, Get a Day.
I'll be donating the ticket to an underprivledged kid  
so they can visit the Happiest Place On Earth : .)

I played with paints and paper.

I watched 500 Days of Summer:  Not a love story, but a story about love.
 Joseph Gordon Levitt is so cute & Zooey Deschanel is so quirky.
It was happy and sad.  Life is like that.

My heart is filled with bleubirds!!!

Finishing off the weekend packaging things I owe to my peeps 
& cooking dinner
(marinated steak, sauted mushrooms, broccoli, baked potoato,
and key lime pie for dessert!)
 hee, hee, hee!!!

*I read this article in Time magazine that said that exercise won't make you thin,
mostly b/c people like to reward themselves for their workout and eat more than they burned.
While I don't fall prey to this thinking, I am always hungry from working out.
As a matter of fact, I eat 3Xs the amount of fuds anyone I know eats!!!
I'm not big, but I'm not thin either. 
and its 'cause I like to eat!!!
And, like pretty much every other woman in the universe,
I just want to lose 10 pounds. 
You know, that 10 pounds!
So, the experiment was to not work out
and see if I still felt like eating 
massive amounts of fuds...

[I also didn't go to the gym b/c I've been harassed by 
2 old ladies in the past two weeks.  
And rather than have my workout effed up...
I decided to not go : .(   ]

...and lo and behold, 
I wasn't very hungry this week.
I do know that eventually I would miss my endorphin fix. 

Or maybe not  ; .)
