amazing still it seems, i'll be 23...



yep. i'm officially a 23-year-old.

wha? how did this happen? i'm still in denial.

okay, so 23 isn't that old, but still...

my actual birthday on wednesday was rather uneventful. however, my long weekend up north was as close to perfect and amazing as one could ever ask for. there was lots of food (of course!), including fondue-style s'mores, sushi, crepes and huevos rancheros, a romantic french dinner, dim sum, top dog (of course), and plenty of cupcakes. celebrated with strawberry mango mojitos (YUM!), screwdrivers (with fresh squeezed orange juice!!), and pina coladas. went to another a's game, tailgated again, and had some really awesome seats (is it sad that i've been to 2 a's games and no dodger games so far this season?), somehow turned into an awesome bowler, did a bit of scrap shopping, met a bunch of new people, walked some cute dogs, got plenty of sleep (until the last day), and spent lots of quality time with

and him


yep, a him. some of you (or maybe not) might remember me making a brief mention of a boy back in this post (i also said that there may be a new reason for going up to norcal here). little did i know that 4 months later, that boy would end up being my boyfriend. it was the last thing i expected when i told linda (who was his roommate at the time) to "tell" (not ask, tell) him to go to dinner with us at zachary's, but we hit it off, especially while playing pool afterwards. eventually, one thing led to another and here we are. this whole living 400 miles apart thing sucks and is obviously not ideal or easy, but we're making it work and i have not been this happy in a while.


so. yeah.

more birthday festivities this weekend. yay :)

have a good one :)
