Twenty-Three

In the midst of all this wedding craziness I almost forgot about my birthday...almost.
In six days I'll be 23 years old! I wasn't going to make a big deal out of it. 
After all, I think getting married is pretty much the best birthday present ever. But a friend reminded me that I shouldn't let this occasion go by with a little celebration. So I'm having a small gathering of friends at Samurai on Friday...my favorite restaurant! I love the hibachi steak, the fried rice, the amazing shrimp sauce! I can't wait. 
And on Sunday Alex is taking me to Joe's Stone Crab. I've never eaten there before...but I hear good things! My sister and her new husband will be joining us. I'm really looking forward to it. 

By the way, if you're feeling generous, I really *love* Urban Outfitters gift cards. ;-)
Or just plain Hallmark cards. Those are great.

You're right. I can't compete with the gift of a husband...

... but I can give you the gift of hating! it's not as great as an Alex, but at least it's a fun past-time.

Yay! Have a great time for your b-day!
Totally understand, though... my wedding is the week of my 21 b-day. No party for me.
