I seem to always look at the clock right at 9:14, sometimes both times each day. I always notice license plates with 914 in sequential order. I notice expiration dates (sadly I'll probably be seeing less and less of those with 2014 creeping up). I can see a random sequence of numbers and low and behold 914 is there. From nail polish numbers to grocery bills, 914 is always popping up. I'm sure you're thinking to yourself, "You're around other numbers just as frequently, but you're so obsessed with 914 that you automatically and subconsciously pick it out of a crowd." Sure, that sounds totally reasonable. But you must not realize how often I come across this number. It's seriously uncanny, and I seriously couldn't love it more. Friends and family have even texted me things like "Happy birthday o'clock" at 9:14 or pictures of random numbers that include 914.
I mean, seriously.
I can always tell after Brad gets my birthday present. Even if my birthday is a week away he'll always start asking if I want to celebrate that day. He gets so excited for the craziness that will surely ensue on September 14th that he seems to hardly be able to wait. I always sternly say no, because I want to celebrate ON MY BIRTHDAY and not one minute before.
As soon as the alarm clock went off last Friday, Brad was up and at em singing "Happy Birthday" and throwing Killer on top of me so she'd give me lots of birthday kisses. I had school off that day (lucky!), but unfortunately Brad had to go to class. Before he left I got to open my present.
After Brad got home from school, we went to my all-time favorite place - Mellow Mushroom - for dinner. Coincidentally all their appetizers were half off that night (they must have known I was coming), so we got 2! We ate ourselves silly and still had some leftover (yum...cold pizza...my favorite!!!). We then came home and picked up the pup. Brad took us to a park near our house, where we laid blankets and pillows in the back of our truck and watched the first four episodes of the first season of Modern Family, which Sara and Steve gifted me with. When we got back home, we finally had room for some yummy ice cream cake. This thing was deliciously delectable and ginormous. We just finally finished it off yesterday. It was an awesome end to a perfect day!
