So...

First of all, thank you ALL for your birthday wishes in the comments below! I love you all!!! And now for your regularly scheduled post. Do enjoy.




Thirty four came and went with little change in scenery, a lot of change in lifestyle, and a large change in personal accomplishment. Yesterday, I turned the big (fat) 35, and just as I'd gotten used to the fact, my dad called and ruined my life.


"Hey Alli! Happy birthday!" he chimed.

"Thanks dad! I appreciate it!" was my greatful reply.

"So, only 5 years til you're 40..." he said, unaware of the stroke he caused me to have.



That's right folks, 35 isn't just half way through your thirties, it's actually "only 5 years til 40" and that my friends, is bullcrap. I'd like a ticket off of this helltrain to Geriatricland, thank you very much.

Anyway, my friends Aimee and Emily brought me over pies and cakes and let me tell you, if there was EVER a time in my life when I needed them, it was yesterday. Aimee "heard" that I love pie so she brought me over a strawberry one with whipped cream and a Claim Jumper black berry pie that made me absolutely giddy! Then, when Emily walked in with a big fat homemade cake, I about died! I thanked the girls and as soon as they left, I cut big pieces of the strawberry pie and the cake and went to my room to shovel it into my sobbing face while I watched my dang Big Brother DVR'd episode. I will admit it...I am thirty five...but nobody ever said I was always charming.

Ok so I exaggerate a bit, it was actually a really nice day, Mike got me an MP3 player to replace the one he stole from me borrows for work every day. He even put some music on it for me. Oh and it's pink! and everyone knows how much I adore pink! lately. Honestly, I think that I tried to hide those tiny girl urges for so long, the ones that adored princesses and sparkles and diamonds, that everytime anyone asked me what my favorite color was, I'd say that it was blue, or green, or blue-green, blue with green in it, but here it is people, in my 35 year old glory...I love pink! Love it. Obsessed with it. I wish pink were my ringtone, guys. Seriously though...

Anyway, my family comes in 3 days!!! and I'm so excited about it! I can't keep my excitement under control as I type this and my arms are shaking with excitement it's just that exciting you guys, can you feel the excitement?!?!?

love you bye.

Oh and as for pink...It's da baste. I did have a pink room growing up and then pink kinda went away for along time. I too was a blue/green girl. Still am. But yes pink is the new pink!!! Also, I'd like to add that Pale is the new Tan! :)

I love me some pink! It's just a happy color. And I don't know about the pale...I think that will be changin for me in the next little bit, so I guess I'll be "out of fashion" this season.

And I want me some of that yummy cake and pie! Pop it in the microwave for a few seconds and then top it off with some vanilla bean ice cream. Mmmmmm. :P

And you all best think of me while you are in DL!
