It's a big birthday, but I didn't have a big celebration. I'm in Portland with new people, new places, and a broken appendix!
That didn't stop boyfriend from making sure we celebrated my birthday together. While he wasn't supposed to get me a birthday gift (due to my super awesome Thule roof rack Valentines Day gift!!), he started off the morning with a bag full of goodies.
And let me tell you about this bag full of goodies.
- First of all, the bag was adorable. My Aunt Peggy would be proud. And it would match my bathroom PERFECTLY. Too stinkin' cute.
- Second - MYTHOS Climbing Shoes! My current climbing shoes suck. They hurt. Granted I have janky feet, but these shoes don't help. When I slipped my ultra-wide foot into a pair of Mythos for the first time, it felt like butter. (I'm sure if you put butter on your feet, this is what it would feel like)
- I also got 2 books - Hot Springs in the Pacific Northwest and Wow Guides - North Cascades. I lovelove hot springs, and I can pick out hikes in the cascades that aren't "I want to die and never hike again" hikes :-)
- And he got me a cute little green butterfly bookmark from Powell's books.
We then went to a doctor appointment for my appendix, and got a TB test for my new jobby. After, we went to Ready, Paint, Fire! to paint pottery which was super fun! We were supposed to go to dinner afterward, but I was so pooped from walking everywhere and such a long day (thank you, appendicitis) that we came home and crashed.
But it was a great day! I wouldn't have had it any other way :-)
Thank you EVERYONE for all of the birthday wishes!! I am so luck to have such good friends and family!
