25th Birthday Weekend

I'm 25 years and 3 days old....can't believe it! Growing up I'd always have a countdown to my birthday...but the past few years June 19th seems to have just crept up on me without me realizing. However, this year was different....I was excited for my 25th Birthday....I wasn't going to have a birthday party- I've stopped having birthday parties since I was 19...but this year was different....I wanted to celebrate the milestone; A QUARTER CENTURY- it's kind of a big deal! I wanted a fun celebration, a celebration I'd have with just my girlfriends...something like a girls' night out! So that was my plan..on my birthday (thursday)I sent out evites for the girls night out party on saturday.

Thursday June 19th, woke up earlier than usual....my cellphone rang, my parents were calling, as soon as I answered the phone I heard my mommy's voice and she and daddy sang Happy Birthday To ME :-D. After my morning serenade I hopped in the shower and as I was stepping out my Shaunie was there waiting for me and sang Happy Birthday, then he gave me the most beautiful card EVER! I cried...yeah I'm very emotional.... I got dressed and made it to work later than usual...said Bon Dia to everyone sitting at the front desk...when I got to my cubicle...it was decorated with a Happy Birthday Banner, a bouquet, and a card...I felt soo special!! The day was turning out to be wonderful ....I received phone calls, endless msn messages,email birthday cards and facebook messages... Roseline bought me lunch from Starbucks and as I was drinking my soup, she told me that smoke was coming out of the conference room.....I jumped up and was like...OMG that's crazy...as I got to the door and realized the door was closed I knew they were trying to surprise me (Melissa and Bianny) for our birthdays- yay for June babies!!! There were 3 cakes on the table and ofcourse mine was the Carvel Ice Cream Cake, they sang Happy Birthday To Us and then we got to cut our cakes :-D. I had to scoop Shaunie up from work today and when we left his job he took me to Bahama Breeze for dinner...he even made reservations....I still can't believe it! We had a fun dinner date.

Saturday June 21st- My Girls Night by the pool was scheduled for today...but the weather was not cooperating, so I had to move the celebration indoors...we had a wonderful time..if I must say so myself..but I think others will agree. We were about 15 girls hanging out, drinking martinis, socializing and eating. We also did karaoke....(Comcast has Karaoke OnDemand)...My last guests left around 2AM...Thanks to all that came out to make my Birthday Celebration memorable!

Monday morning bright and early woke up extatic because I had finally said YES TO THE DRESS!! I found the perfect dress at Nordstrom...it was everything I had imagined and dreamt of; something classy and sexy at the same time. I ordered my size, received the confirmation and also the estimated shipping date; it said 7/11/2008, the date didn't phase me because I thought whatever....I'd be here by next week monday FOR SURE. So today June 12th, I contacted Nordstrom because the item hadn't shipped....what I was about to hear would ruin my entire day....okay, I'm being dramatic, but I was pissed,upset and sad all at the same time....my item wouldn't be shipped until JULY 11th....yes, she said JULY....that would not make it in time for my special day....I was CONVINCED however, that the confirmation email indicated JUNE 11th...but when I double checked I realized that indeed it said JULY. So here we go again...back to the drawing board..in search of ANOTHER PERFECT DRESS....

I checked my other online purchase and was happy to know that it had been delivered to my house ( said it was on my porch), so I got home..peeped on my porch and found NOTHING. So I thought that maybe My Dushi had seen it out there and brought it in....asked him....and nothing! Still I thought he was messing with me, ...I asked him what seems like a million times....and I soon realized that he was getting frustrated at me, which usually meant that he was telling the truth. Here we go again I thought.... I sat down at my desk, looked up the phone number to call UPS....the agent on the phone told me that it was delivered to Apt. 107 instead of 106, so I figured, no biggie..I'll just go check on THEIR porch! Hung up, went outside to go check with my neighbors, only to realize that they had moved ( no wonder I hadn't seen the guys in over a week )....daaaaaannnng....seems like Murphy's messing with me today. Oooh well, guess I should always think positively....the worst that could happen already did...so I have only positives to look forward to ( I have faith).
