Thought I should finally blog about my 26th birthday which was last month on July 28 – ah, I’m getting so old!
My birthday was very uneventful. I stayed at home all day and lounged on the couch, which was really just what I needed!
For dinner, Mike made yummy chicken Kiev with potatoes and vegetables and chocolate cupcakes! I didn’t plan an event or do anything with friends, but perhaps next year!
Wasn’t expecting anything, but I even got presents…
Really cute wrapping from Mike, he was very impressed at his handiwork. Even the bow was handmade
Mike added 3 charms to my Pandora bracelet: Suitcase + Aeroplane, both representing each other’s travel buddy, the travels we’ve done together so far, and the places we’ll see together in the future. He also gifted me the Medical charm, also known as the Caduceus charm. Yes, we are both aware that the Rod of Asclepius (and not the Caduceus symbol) is the proper symbol of medicine!
My sister sent me a package from Ottawa that contained a dinosaur card in an envelope that roared (sounding very much like my brother) when you opened it.
Inside the card were my presents! Awesome gift certificates, you should take a look!
In addition, I also received a bunch of Reese peanut butter cups! Delicious and not easily available, or cheap, in Australia.
Unfortunately, they were all squished and looked like this!
My brother ordered me a set of ceramic knives – nice! I’ve always wanted a few of these, and now I have some! He even gave me the “never sharpen ceramic knives” speech Yes bro, of course I know that already!
And as a bonus, some gifts from Kristen! Cute heart-shaped silicone cupcake liners and a paper set with little decorations! Also a lovely brown skinny belt with a gold feather buckle and a turquoise clutch/wallet. Thank you my dear!
Oh, did I mention my family back home had a party on my behalf? Thanks guys! Although I think you used my birthday as an excuse to eat cake Just kidding! Thanks for remembering me and including me in the family!
Here are some pictures from the “party”:
