Thirty-Something...and still a Nerd

Today I am thirty one. Which...honestly is really strange. Because I would swear I was only 26, 27 tops. But if you do the math, I am indeed 31. I have work today and class tonight, so we celebrated my birthday with my family last night. It was awesome. My mom made a delicious dinner and we had a Heath bar cake. And I got some awesome gifts. So awesome in fact, I am going to share them with you now. Just to highlight that at 31, I am still a total and complete nerd.
We will start with the little less nerdy and a little more awesome. Boo got me some gray chucks that I have been dying for. I wore converse all through high school, and I am so sad that my little maroon pair that I loved most of all have been lost in time. So I got my new gray pair, and I will wear them until the fall apart. Being that my sister is awesome, she also got Henry his own pair too. So we can be all matchy. And they are high tops. Awesome.
My next present...well...it came in this gift bag. Because...you know...it's funny. And a joke...and...Oh okay fine. Because Missy knew I would love it. Inside the bag was the audio book of The Hunger Games, which I am ridiculously excited about. Because if it is a young adult novel, I am going to become obsessed with it.
Enchantment Under the Sea Dance
Then my husband...oh he got me this. That's right. It's an Enchantment Under the Sea Dance t-shirt. You know...from Back to the Future. What? You didn't know? Because you aren't a total nerd like us? Well, that is so sad for you. And now I am sure you are like, well...that's fine, but it isn't like she will wear it out of the house...WRONG!
It's my birthday and I will wear what I want to. But I have it on with my chucks...and my jean jacket. So I am going for...sort of a... Oh, never mind. I am a nerd. Henry is going to be so embarrassed by me when he gets older.

Happy Birthday to me!

**My sweet parents didn't get me a nerdy gift at all. They gave me money to get a camera I am dying for, but at the last minute I decided it is smarter to keep the cash in savings and put it toward the FET at the beginning of the year. But taking a picture of cash seemed a little silly. But I am very excited about it, and very thankful!**

**Have you noticed how many pictures I have posted lately? Good lord, It is all pictures all the time here. One of these days I will post more meaningful words. But not tomorrow. Tomorrow there are more pictures from our weekend. But soon, I promise.**
