My birthday

I still get excited for birthdays. 
I think they are so much fun. 
This year I turned 38. 
It's hard to believe because I still feel really young in my head!

On my birthday night they gave me these bags.

And I opened all this fun stuff!
Well, except for the drink. 
Doug brought that huge drink home for me. 
I got the Selection series, the sequel to Way of Kings- Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson, the next book in the Cragbridge Hall series, and the latest installment in Brandon Mull's Five Kingdom's series. 
Plus I got a cute hat, a scarf (because I am trying to figure out how to wear them without being annoyed by them) and some jewelry that I picked up myself. 
Plus my favorite gift- Abi wrote a little book for me!

After gifts were opened and the kids were playing in their room, I settled in with a giant oreo ( I made those this year instead of a cake) and a good book. 
The best kind of birthday!

So glad they treat you right on your birthday, including letting you just sit and read after opening the gifts. You deserve it!

I love your jewelry! And few things are better on your birthday than relaxing with a good book!

Thanks! I am not a huge jewelry person but every once in a while I find something I really like. And that is always fun.
I agree. Best way to end a birthday is with a book!

I totally know what you mean about not feeling that old in your head. I am pretty sure I am only 22, but my birth certificate keeps trying to say I am turning 40 this year. I am okay with aging. It just doesn't feel how I expected it to feel. Sadly, I also look a lot younger in my head than the mirror is suggesting lately. Oh well, happy 38th!
