Birthdays and Tailgates
So, I celebrated my birthday earlier this week. Another year older, not necessarily wiser. But it's been an action-packed year. Since my last birthday, I've started a new job, got married in New Orleans with more than 175 of my closest friends and relatives in attendance, celebrated Oktoberfest in Germany, visited Austria, partied in Jamaica and attended numerous weddings, baby showers, housewarming and going away parties. Good times. Hoping this next year of my life brings more of the same shenanigans.
This birthday was particularly special. For the first time in a decade, I was able to spend it with immediate family. My brother and sister-in-law flew in from California for a visit and we had a fabulous dinner in Atlanta, followed by drinks with friends. Later today, we're packing up the car and heading to Athens for the Georgia-Tennessee football game. There will be tailgating-a-plenty this weekend! Granted, it won't be great for the waistline but I'll make up for it with extra workouts and lean eating next week. Huzzah!
Speaking of birthdays, my hubby actually made a delicious, sugar-free cake for my big day. The double layer chocoholic cake was the perfect treat and one I'm hoping he makes again next year. So cheers to all you September babies - and let's celebrate another year of life on planet Earth.
