Yesterday, I celebrated my 29th birthday. My poor phone was exploding with messages from all my wonderful friends posting greetings on my Facebook wall. I am also on holidays from work right now which made it the perfect opportunity to celebrate exactly how I wanted.
I woke up and was taken by my roomie to get my free birthday coffee from Starbucks and cake pops for breakfast. I always love coffee, especially when it is free. We came home and I had the opportunity to post my birthday video which if you missed it is here.
Then I was told by my roomie that I needed to be in the car by 11:30am because we were going for lunch, but she wasn’t telling me where we were going. So I jumped into the shower at 11:33am to get ready to go for lunch (because I’m super good at showing up on time like that). I managed to get ready in 10 minutes and we headed down to the car and hit the highway.
So after about 120 million annoying wrong guesses of where we were going, I guessed correctly that we were going to the Half Moon Drive In located about 20 minutes north of Winnipeg near Lockport. It was totally worth the drive, lunch was delicious. It was a super fun surprise and I got to meet her brother and his wife for the very first time. We also got to share lunch with another friend from work.
We came home feeling incredibly stuffed and had nap time. I think that naps are officially one of my favourite activities in the world. The nap lasted about two hours before we had to wake up, have a quick dinner, and get back into the car.
We headed over to my coworkers home to have some snacks and s’mores. For those of you that haven’t had a s’more, it is a marshmallow that you roast on the fire and then squish it between two graham crackers with a piece of chocolate. It is messy and delicious. I have to give my friend C a kudos for finding biscuits that had chocolate already on them so legit got just the right amount of chocolate to marshmallow to cookie.
Then I was surprised with a chocolate cheesecake for my birthday. It was super yummy and I for sure feel 100lbs fatter today after only one piece.
I am still planning on doing something on a bigger scale to celebrate with all my friends, but I just wanted a relaxing birthday celebration on my actual birthday since it was my first full day of holidays.
Thank you to everyone for being a part of making my birthday just a little bit more special. Now I am going to go take my afternoon nap because that is totally becoming a thing.
