Calm down, calm down because here we go...
Warner Bros. wanted to do something really special for my birthday this year so they decided to have the final Harry Potter movie open on July 15. (sidebar: that's muh bday, folks.) How nice of them, right?! I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend the wee hours of my birthday morning---sitting in a theater full of Hogwarts students, a Dumbledore, a Moaning Myrtle, an Umbridge, a golden snitch, a Trelawney (etc., etc.) watching the final movie and eating candy. Seeing as it was the last movie and all, we decided it was necessary to dress up. So much WINNING. I don't know why we have never dressed up for such an event before, but thank goodness we did it for this one. From now on I'm dressing up for all movies I go to see. Oh hai Winnie the Pooh and Cowboys and Aliens and Smurfs, this is gonna be REAL fun.
The celebration continued with some good food on Friday night. And by good food, I mean delicious. And by good food, I also mean good desserts. Did I mention there was good company as well? Thank you Founders for making my belly as happy as my heart on my b-day. (Awwww.) (So truesies.)
I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to Mr. Freddiefriend. Again. (by the way, how is y'alls's search for a Freddiefriend coming along?) My family is used to my crazy, I mean super charming, attitude about the month of July. They know to spppprrreeeeaaadd the party out all month and tone out, I mean listen intently, to all my birthday talk. FF was just thrown into the madness this year and went above and beyond, as per usual, to make the day extra special. (which wasn't hard for him to do since he exudes large amounts of extra specialness every few minutes.) If you want to keep talking about how great he is, hit me up and we can chat away.
After a surprise from Freddiefriend on Saturday (say hello to the new and ever so talented glass blowers and champion Antico calzone eaters, Mle and Freds) and the grand finale Sunday Walton family dinner celebration at the Dids house, birthday weekend ended on the highest note possible. Which is puhretty high, y'all. Like extra squeaky high. Like so high only the super alert dogs can hear it. And mice. And special machines.
Many many many thanks to my family, and friends, and Freddie and everyone who made it the happiest of birthday (months.) I could not ask for a better group of people in my life to put up with the crazy birthday rants and actually still choose to be around me in July. (okay maybe they don't really have a choice so much, but...)
Just wait, we still have 14 days of PARTYING! ;)
Wanna see some pictures? Good!
