Remember how I said I was happy to be getting back into a normal routine? I lied… I want time off again! For whatever reason, yesterday just draaaaaagged – I’d look at the clock expecting an hour to have gone by, and it had only been 15 minutes. Bah! At least it’s Friday. Ooooo and speaking of which, today officially marks the start of… well… I’m going to build up the suspense and reveal it countdown style…
Ten – apples used in the applesauce I made yesterday.
Nine – times I almost fell asleep watching The Hobbit (rough approximation). I was actually really disappointed with this one. I loved the book and was hoping that Jackson would do a good job with the movie, since he did with Lord of the Rings; but this movie was too dragged out, lacked the epic feel that LOTR had, and had a whole bunch of things added to it that weren’t in the book. I’m glad I saw it, but it’s not a movie I’ll be watching again.
Eight – hours of work to get through before the weekend.
Seven – months that it’ll probably take me to finish the new puzzle I bought… if I even finish at all. I actually love puzzles, but after an initial burst of enthusiasm, I tend to lose interest for a while. We’ll see how this one goes.
Six – hours of sleep last night. I think it’s my magic number.
Five – minutes it took me to throw breakfast together.
Four – days left until 2013. What.the.heck? 😯 I think I should start thinking up some resolutions.
Three – bananas eaten over the course of yesterday. I may turn into a monkey.
Two – cookies are better than one, obviously…
One – week until my birthday 😀
Yesssss. Today officially marks the start of birthday week for me! Next Friday, January 4th, I’ll be blowing out 28 candles and
stuffing my face with enjoying a slice of cake. I’m not honestly sure how I’m going to go about celebrating birthday week, but I’m thinking of doing something special for myself each day – nothing big, but things like getting my nails done or going out to grab a cupcake. It’s all about the little things, right? 😀

When’s your birthday? Do you celebrate birthday week?
What’s your favorite birthday cake? I need some ideas!
And… do you like puzzles?

So I may have just gone out and bought that concealer and conditioner at Target. You’re da best. 🙂 Can’t wait to try them both out!
Olivia @ Liv Lives Life
I think I dozed off about that many times during The Hobbit too! And that applesauce looks amazing!
we’ll be celebrating with you on the 4th, but for our 5 year anniversary. Maybe i should make some snickerdoodles in your honor though, yes? Happy bday week!

I love puzzles, but I also tend to lose interest after awhile. I just got a new one over Christmas vacation that I am going to begin tackling soon. Hopefully it keeps my interest and I complete it within a reasonable time ;).
I can totally relate with #3. I love bananas (but only if they are pretty ripe), and it is rare that I go a day without eating one.
Happy almost birthday! My go-to cakes growing up were either funfetti or yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I am also a big fan of carrot cake though too!
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
I’ll only eat pretty ripe bananas as well – my favorite is when they start getting a little spotty 😀
Miranda @ Biting Life
Ooh I love puzzles, but that one looks hard! I definitely want to have a “puzzle table” at my place eventually 🙂
Ashley @ AlmostVegGirlie
Happy early birthday! Mine was in late July so it’s not for awhile now, but I’m still looking forward to it because I’ll finally be 21…not that I’m planning on going crazy or anything, it’ll just be nice to be able to order a drink at a nice restaurant every once in awhile. Oh, and I absolutely believe in celebrating birthday week! It only comes around once a year, so why not celebrate all week?
I’m not a huge fan of birthday cake (I prefer cold desserts!) but I like carrot cake or a chocolate cake with raspberry filling. But if I could find a place that made a vegan ice cream cake, I would totally opt for that instead.
Just found your blog and WOW I adore your photos and writing 🙂 And a birthday week? Sounds like a GREAT idea! 😀
I’ve heard the same remarks from my tennis coach about the movie The Hobbit. He claimed it was a fine movie, but definitely too draggy for his liking. Oh well, I guess it’s impossible for the producers to please everyone.
Puzzles take forever to complete! They’re tricky and fun, but it requires tremendous time and patience. I’m impressed you actually brought yourself to purchase it. I sure hope you finish it soon!
