Birthday Celebrations: Part II

I am 24 today! I can't say I feel much different, but I am happy to be an even-numbered age again. I just like even numbers better...is that weird? :)

Brian made a special trip home last weekend to celebrate with me! When he said I could pick any restaurant I wanted for my birthday dinner, I racked my brain before deciding on The Melting Pot!


B had never been before (which was another reason I felt like we needed to go!), and he was concerned that fondue didn't sound very filling. I think his wording was, "It just sounds like I'm going to have to run to McDonald's and get a Happy Meal afterwards." Let's just say that after four courses of cheese, salads, dinner, and dessert, he was sorely mistaken!


We had such a great time (in addition to an amazing meal). Because dinner takes forever there, we got to just sit together and catch up on our respective lives. We spend a lot of time on the phone, but it is so different (and so nice) to just be together.


My plans for today include relaxing this morning, and then a full day of class. I'm glad I got to celebrate this weekend, because I don't have too much time today! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go eat cupcakes for breakfast...because it's my birthday, and I can!

I'm glad you've been able to celebrate already. School kind of messes up birthday celebrations.

Enjoy your cupcakes, and have an amazing 24th year of life!

Happy Birthday! I have only been to the Melting Pot once and that was way back when I graduated from high school. I have been wanting to go back but my husband has the same attitude that your bf had. He thinks he will be starving when he leaves.
