Yesterday was my birthday! I had to be at work at 5:30 am and when I got home a little after 7 am, Jaden had a birthday crown that he made waiting for me!
I spent the day doing a few errands and getting my hair done. I got some much needed highlights. Then, I stopped at Ulta and got my free birthday gift – Urban Decay 24/7 purple eye liner. I love the Urban Decay eye liners, I’m just not sure I’ll use purple eye liner. I wear brown eyeliner 99% of the time. If I’m feeling crazy, I might wear black eye liner otherwise brown it is!
Jaden had a baseball game in the evening. And lucky me, it rained for most of it. The game still went good and after we stopped to get Chipotle for my birthday dinner. I’m pretty sure calories don’t count on your birthday.
When we got home, Danny and the kids gave me some birthday gifts. There might have been some wine involved.
Jaden and I just finished reading Charlotte’s Web and I told Danny that I really wanted to get a pet pig. For my birthday he got me this:
He said it was as close to a pet pig as I was going to get.
He also got me two of my favorite Cellucor products – C4 and alpha aminos.
After presents, we had cake – my favorite cake is chocolate or white cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream frosting. Nothing beats strawberries and whipped cream.
Jaden had an allergy doctor appointment before school today so I got to the gym a little later than usual. Even though I had a rest day yesterday, I wasn’t super feeling it in the gym today. Do you ever have one of those days when you just don’t feel like doing anything?!
I still worked out, just a little lighter than I normally do. I started out with a two mile fast walk on the treadmill followed by a few shoulder exercises. I have another workout planned for tonight so I didn’t want to wear myself out too much. I’m still sore from my back workout earlier in the week and my hip has been achy lately. I’m trying to be better at listening to my body.
After the gym, I stopped at Starbucks for my free birthday drink.
Don’t you just love all the birthday freebies?! I still have a free Dunkin’ Donuts coffee coupon to use!
Have a great afternoon!
- What’s your favorite birthday freebie? The Benefit counter at Ulta used to give you a free eyebrow wax on your birthday but they stopped that a couple of years ago and I was so bummed!
- Favorite Starbucks drink?
- Do you go to the gym even if your not feeling it or take a rest day?
