Today is my birthday! So far I have had an amazing day. I’m one of those people who always have amazing birthdays. Nothing goes wrong on my birthday! I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad birthday. When it’s my birthday, everything is sunshine and sparkles (even though it rained today) and my smile starts to hurt my face by the end of the day.

First of all, I got an amazing birthday present from my family. My parents, grandmother, other grandparents, and Josh all chipped in and got me an Amazon Kindle DX. My sister also bought me a beautiful leather case to go with it! After nearly drooling on it, squealing a little bit, and staring at it all mesmerized, I have been thoroughly enjoying it! I downloaded a bunch of free e-books already and I have been playing with a lot of the Kindle’s features.

Birthday Card (by caitysparkles)

Work was even awesome today. My friend Emily, who is an amazing artist, made me this awesome card and had most of my friends at work sign it for me! It meant so much to me! Also, the kids in my classes today were great and even drew me happy birthday pictures on the board. It was the cutest thing ever.

I even got a discount on my lunch! The owner at the deli we always frequent heard it was my birthday and barely charged me for my lunch. He gave it to me for practically nothing! It was so nice of him!

Josh’s mom sent me Season 1 of Flight of the Conchords on DVD. That was a pretty epic present, too. If you don’t know who Flight of the Conchords are, they are a New Zealand comedy duo who had an HBO series over here, too. They are absolutely hysterical and I love them so much.

Josh and I are going to go out for dinner tonight. I also found out that my friends are throwing me a birthday party this Saturday! How awesome is that? My friends and family really know how to make me feel loved.
