When I was 23, it was a very good year...

I really wish you could see this from all angles. The clown on the side is creeping up the side of the cake, where he sneakily killed the other clown. Up close, you can tell that Katy painted their faces like the Joker. And, of course, it says "Come Bleed With Us"--one of our favorite maxims. And those COLORS! Katy is truly a genius.

My birthday was so great! I got loads of fun presents from my loved ones. Tshirts, nice shirts, the special 50th anniversary edition of Sleeping Beauty, Photoshop Elements, fluffy pillows, a homemade pillow of a robot quoting Dickens, Himalayan prayer flags, movie theater candy and popcorn, a lint roller, Costco money, Forever 21 money, and a Vera Bradley messenger bag (raspberry fizz). I am very happy and grateful! Last night some friends came over and we ate some delicious cake and were funny together. My camera died right after taking this picture of the cake, so no pictures of us having fun. Oh well, we will remember it in our hearts.

Some more cool things:
  • I just ate a Rice King potsticker for the first time, and it was the best potsticker I have ever had in my entire life.
  • I've been listening to Nightmare Before Christmas for two days straight. 'Tis the season!
  • I get to spend all my free time learning how to use Photoshop.
  • We get to eat leftover cake for the rest of the week!
  • The managers stained our cabinets today, so I'm high off fumes
Next exciting thing: Emily and Council Bluffs are getting married on Saturday!!!

Photoshop is my most favorite toy EVER. I want to marry it and have little Photoshop babies.

If you have questions, I more than likely have answers.

Happy birthday!!

Mmm...dead clowns. Nothing says "happy birthday" quite like 'em. YOU'RE WELCOME.

Sorry we missed your party! We had a retreat up at Springhaven for Model UN and we didn't get home until around 10.

I'm SO glad you had a fun birthday and that cake is truly incredible. I'm sad I don't get to see you more, some neighbor I am! We will have to remedy that soon!!

I'm so glad you have the Sleeping Beauty DVD. I always watch it when I can't sleep, and it give me very happy dreams! :)
