It may or may not be my birthday today. Okay I’ll tell you… it is! ha. When I first realized that it would fall on a Monday this year, I thought it was pretty lame. But I’ve decided that Monday birthdays are actually where it’s AT. Weekends are usually already fun, whereas when else does a Monday include chocolate at breakfast, consumption of your favourite cake and a sleepover with your best friend?!
In other news, it’s officially finals, which comes with pros and cons. Okay well there aren’t actually that many pros and there is one big con: I feel sort of guilty spending time on the blog, which means there may as well be a dagger through my heart. So today I thought I’d just pop in real quick and share a few highlights of my birthday celebrations with my beautiful mom yesterday.
But I should mention that if all goes as planned, you can still expect regular posts in the coming weeks! In fact I’ve got a recipe and workout coming your way, both of which I am very excited about.
Well first things first, she brought me a little sampling of some of her recent Christmas baking and oh myyyyyy.
How do mothers always seem to know the perfect gifts?!
She also came with a mini tree in tow and I am a bit too excited about. A few feet of fake pine somehow still go such a long way.
A trip to the gym found its way to the itinerary, where she kindly took pictures of me for aforementioned workout post.
When night fell (um okay it was actually 4:30 because #daylightsavings), we took a little drive on a hunt for Christmas lights. Such a December favourite of mine!
And we capped off the night at one of my favourite local restaurants. Full wineglass, full plate and full heart.
This past year was one in which I became more certain that my field of study is so so right for me, fell deeper in love and found a new passion that came with a whole bunch of new friends (BLOGGING).
Feeling extra thankful today for you guys and the joy that this space brings me.
If you feel so inclined to find yourself a piece of cake to help me celebrate today, that sounds like a pretty great idea to me. ha!
Happy Monday guys!
