birthday probs

July 10 is an important day.
Because it is T-minus 5 days until the big day.
Meaning my birthday
But I'm sure you already had a countdown going. 

I've been doing this really fun thing lately. I promise, it's super fun. Just ask Freddie. Every time I see or think of a fun thing to do or a new place to eat I say, Hey! Let's do that/eat there/see that on my birthday! 

I didn't think much of it until earlier this week when Freddie was like blah blah blah ::Charlie Brown adult voice::, how can we do ten things all on your birthday?

Hmmm, that does sound like a dilemma. A pickle. A dilemma pickle. I don't like dilemmas or pickles.  I like birthday fun. I like delicious new food and fun new activities. I also like chocolate.

But not chocolate pickles.

Here are all the things I think should be done between the hours of 4pm-midnight on July 15:

-Eating at The Grove. Fancy. 

-Buying all the chocolate desserts from Central Market. Necessary. 

-Eating dessert at The Chocolate Bar. 

-Trying Whataburger since apparently it's better than In-N-Out. 

-Shopping the special Amazon Prime day because HOW COOL IS IT THAT IT'S ON MY BIRTHDAY?!

-Getting a free cocktail from Blues and BBQ night at our complex.

-Happy Hour at MKT Bar because pomegranate mimosas. Period. The End. Done. 

-Eating at the Italian place down the street of which I can never remember the name, but I can remember it sounds delicious. 

-Going to Ben and Jerry's to create my own Cored sundae. WHAT!

-Eating chorizo queso because we are in Texas, after all. Tex Mex is to Texans what birthday cake is to the other 49 states. 

Holy Cupcake, it all sounds so ridiculous and amazing written out. I guess ultimately the super fun thing that I want to do is gain 26 pounds to represent my 26 years of life.
Here's the pickle-y part though. Freddie and I can't make decisions so it'd be great if you could pick a number between 1-10 for me and that is what we will end up doing between the hours of 4pm-midnight on July 15. Life is hard. Woe is me.


Happy Friday!

i say do all 10! it's your birthday. but if i had to pick... 2. 3. 4. 5. 7. 9. so, you should have plenty of time for all that ;)

I want to do all of these things and it's not even close to my birthday! Well you have to fit in at least one super delicious 'real' meal (i.e. that isn't dessert), a drink (or 5), and a dessert (or 2...or 3...). I can't pick. It's like Sophie's Choice.

I am a firm believer in taking birthday festivities into your own hands, and having THE best day. All of this sounds fantastic.

I love all your birthday posts because they get me excited about mine! I was going to comment on your Facebook wall on July 1st because I knew you'd understand my pure joy for the month but I didn't get there. But now! Just FIVE DAYS! Ben and Jerry's would be the top of my list!

Jenna said...
