A Very Merry Unbirthday!

Today I turned 26 and a half. Yes, I realize I am a little old to be saying, "I am this many years old," while holding up my peanut butter and jelly covered fingers, but sometimes it's nice to do a mid-way assessment between birthdays. I'm a big birthday kind of gal. I love to celebrate other peoples' birthdays, I like to make a big deal out of my own birthday - basically I love birthdays.

Birthdays, for me, start at midnight the night before when I usually receive my first phone call from my brother, Michael. That phone call is followed by text messages from friends on different coasts and then the mass-facebook-wall-attack from every facebook friend I have. This is one of the many reasons why I love facebook. It's always great to hear from the people you remain in contact with, but what I really love are the messages from the friends with whom I have completely been out of touch. The rest of the day is full of fielding phone calls, text messages, facebook wall post alerts, celebrating with coworkers during lunch and looking forward to dinner with friends.

For my 26th birthday, I celebrated with a small group of close friends at El Cholo for Mexican food and margaritas. I never do anything super LA like chose a swanky West Hollywood bar, have a guest list, get all dolled up and drink 'till the sun comes up. I've always been a quality over quantity kind of broad, so dinner with close friends is usually my action.

For my 27th birthday, (yes, I am aware that my 27th is in 6 months... what can I say, I'm a planner...) I want to do something fun and during the day. February 17, 2011 is a Thursday so I'm thinking maybe the following Saturday I will invite my friends to Malibu Seafood for some seafood and sun! Super fun, right?

Good thing I have a few days to think about it...
