The Big 2-8

Well friends, today is my 28th birthday! So far, it's been a great day (even though it's only 9:50am) - because I got a snow day! Yes, the storm that is hitting half the country hit here, and pretty pretty snowflakes are falling everywhere. Can you think of a better birthday present than a day home from work? Because I can't! Well, yes I can. The only thing that would top a snow day is being able to celebrate with Matt. Sad face! But what can you do.

I have a whole week of festivities planned ... starting tonight! I am going to my MIL's house to celebrate the big 2-8 with all of Matt's family, which will be lovely. Tomorrow, I'm going out to dinner with my friends Becky and Patty. Thursday, my office is having a little birthday party for me after school. And on FRIDAY ... I leave to spend my weekend in Chicago! I will be spending the weekend with Lisa, Jenn and Jenny and I am unbelievably excited. So, yay!

No matter how old I get, I still love celebrating my birthday. As my mom always says, getting a year older is better than the alternative!
