In the Deeps of Time and the Midst of Innumerable Stars

After dropping Taylor off at his party back in Lawrence, I heading down to Massachusetts Street.  It's kindof like the Delmar Loop here in St. Louis, lined with shops and little restaurants.  I got a frappacino at Starbucks and walked from one end to the other.  After a couple hours I picked up Taylor so we could go out to dinner for my birthday before I left to head back to Kansas City.

We decided to go for Mexican, complete with margaritas and chips and guacamole.  It wasn't as good as the night before, but it fulfilled my Mexican and margarita craving.  Afterwards I was on my way back to Kansas City.  I got a hotel room and my friend Shelby was meeting me there before picking up my other friend Alyssa and going out for the night.

They were some of my best friends in college so it was really fun to meet up with them.  We don't get to see each other as much anymore, and it was fun for it just to be the three of us.  We kept it pretty casual, going out to Westport and getting a booth at a bar.  It was really nice to just catch up and talk movies, and tell stories, just like old times.

The next morning, I drove home and was surprised with a homemade birthday margarita!  Dad made spaghetti, Mom made brownies for dessert, and there were even a few gifts.

And when we sat down to eat, we were joined by not one, but two bunnies out in the yard!

A little after dinner we whipped up some brownie, ice cream sundaes and I opened the presents.  I got a new pillow pillow, which is super comfortable, a decorative pillow, which is super cute, and new sheets, which are for my giant king-size bed upstairs so I won't know how those are until the fall but they look super soft and cozy.  All in all it was a great birthday weekend, thank you to everyone who helped me bring in year twenty-six.  Stick around, it's going to be a good one.
