May I introduce you to Bootsie, the Birthday Shark? Let me back up. Mo and Jazz asked me what I wanted to do to celebrate my birthday. After thinking long and hard, I decided I wanted a Shark Cake. And purple helium balloons. Look, I know its weird but its just what I wanted, so deal. Anyone who knows me is aware that I love sharks (Shark week is like Christmas to me) and my favorite color is purple. Done and done.
Did you miss the teeth? They are tiny marshmallow bits.
Can you see the crab? And the tiny turtle? And all the fish?
And if you have ever tasted Mo’s cakes, you know they are to-die-for.
We ate my favorite chinese food.
We saw HP 6. Loved it.
Stacy surprised me with delicious cookie dough cupcakes at work.
I received some great gifts.
We played some serious Catan.
I felt loved and special and exactly as a girl should on her birthday.
And thanks to Bootsie, the Best Birthday Shark ever.
PS: Mom I know you are reading this and are thinking “oh heavens to betsy, what has Micci done to her brown hair? She has gone goth!” Mom, cool it, it IS dark, but it will lighten a lot, and I’m trying to maximize my time between trips to the salon. I promise it isn’t as dark as it looks. Also, see you tomorrow.
