He Seriously Rocks.

Back in June, I turned 31 years old.

My birthday was pretty low-key…just a few birthday dinners with different groups of friends and family.

The weekend before my brithday, Adam came to visit and celebrate with me. At the time, he presented me with a wrapped gift and called it my “proxy present”. He said there was something else he was working on, but that he wasn’t sure when he would be able to give it to me. In the meantime, he presented me with Season 1 of LOST. Because he rocks.

Three months passed.

Three months of, “When do I get my present!?!?!,” and, “What IIIIISSSS it?,” and, “You give it to me!”


Finally, he said it was ready. YAY PRESENT!!!

Coincidentally, this was *right* before Sept. 26. My birthday is June 26. I don’t normally keep track of these things, but a little bit of on-the-spot math and I realized, “Hey! That’s just in time for my 31 and 1/4 birthday!”

(yes, he realizes I’m wierd and loves me BECAUSE of it. LOL!)

So, I joked with him.

“Do I get a cake?”

“And a Balloon!!?”

“AND PARTY HATS!?!?!?!?!”

Well, in the end, the hats and the balloons fell by the wayside, but the cake?

There was definately cake. CUPCAKES!

Not only did he get me cupcakes from my favorite bakery, but he rode them home on his MOTORCYCLE and manged to keep them TOTALLY intact and unsmooshed!

I also arrived to a feast of Thai take out!! YUMM!!!

The highlight of my fake birthday party was this:

My long-awaited pressie!

What was it you ask?

What did my loving boyfriend spend months working on and pulling all-nighters for?


That, my friends, is my entire blog in book form.

Starting from it’s rebirth after a bad breakup, through 4 years of neice births and more breakups and new friends found and old friends getting married and having babies. 4 years of knitting failures and glories! 4 years of life and love and adventure! All the way though to my blog’s latest re-birth.

Dude, it’s pretty awesome.

It might even be the best present I’ve ever gotten.

From the best boyfriend I’ve ever known.

Who had the help of one of the coolest girls I’ve ever known. A girl, who, despite being mere months away from a wedding and buried under work and home renovations and a life of her own, took the time to help my technologically-challenged boyfriend create something incredibly sweet and thoughtful for my birthday :)

You guys are amazing :) Thank you!!!

It was definately worth waiting for.

ps – in knitting news, I’m up to the armhole of the left front of my CPH!!! Granted, that means I’m only about 10% done, but YAY! PROGRESS!!! WOOT!
