twenty four point five




today is my half birthday.

once in college my bff brittany told all our friends that jan. 12 was my half birthday...but she left off the "half" part.

she got a pinata and we had ate some form of sugar (though i can't remember what...but i'm sure it was great. i mean HELLO we're talking about MY half birthday) and friends came over and we played games.

everyone was shocked they had forgotten my birthday and our guy friends showed up with random recently-purchased DI gifts like old records and framed pictures of people i didn't know. it was sweet. then we told them it was only my HALF birthday...and everyone went home.

this year i got to eat half a cupcake. (let's be honest, i'll take any excuse to get a cupcake.)

half a year older and wiser too.

haha! that's a great story. and only half a cupcake? sheesh, lyndsey. you should have eaten at least half a sheet cake or something...weak sauce. :)

Loving the half cupcake for the half birthday - way to rationalize!

We DO need to play soon. I always love a reason to visit Pasadena...

Happy half birthday!! Okay, now I need to figure out when mine is, so that I can have a whole new reason to eat half a cupcake. Or a whole one. Whatever.
