I never wrote about my BIRTHDAY!!!
Well it was 10/10/10, so I of course had to make it epic. Luckily I have an awesome family and friends to help that be realized.
It started off with a Friday night pool party at my house. Unfortunately, it is still a bit cold to be swimming in October, even in Arizona. So time in the pool didn't last very long, and it was definitely limited to a select few (the good news is, there was still an opportunity for Jeffrey and I to wear our skimpy bathing suits for a bit). The crazy thing was the attendance. I have thrown a few parties, and they have never been very big. I was expecting around twenty people. Somewhere closer to sixty showed up, a quarter of which I had no clue who they were. But it was still everything I could have ever wanted. Though next time I will remember to buy more pizza and turn on Rock Band.
Saturday night was karaoke at Geisha a Go-Go. This was a bit of a more intimate event. Newlyweds Matt and Kristine came (no, Jeffrey and Matt did not plan the matching cardigans). Christin. Vanie. Phil. Gene. John. And Jeffrey. And Lindsey at the end. We sang some Bonnie Tyler, Ricky Martin, Alanis Morisette, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Turns out we are all excellent singers.
The problem with all this partying was that by Sunday, my actual birthday, I was a bit partied out. I ended up just having a few people over, we ate the cake that Ariana made for me, I got some gum from Carolyn for whoever I planned on kissing next (though she made it clear that it was not going to be her :). It was an excellent birthday weekend.
