Okay, so I know my birthday is kinda old news now, but I have lots of fun pictures to share! So here’s what happened:
Marni wakes up to Birthday Banquet of AWESOME!
Anytime I can light my breakfast on fire, I’m pretty darn happy.
Then I spoke to family members and friends and felt very loved. Thanks everyone for all the well-wishes!
And then Gwyn and I went to the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena where we proceeded to crack each other up for hours.
I pretended that I was Chelsea Halloway. This is the closest I managed.
Yeah…something tells me Chelsea would be rolling her eyes.
We thought this guy had the most flair:
“Does this armor make me look fat?”
This guy had the most anger management issues:
“How could you not say, SPOILER ALERT!?”
This guy was the swooniest:
Um, hellooo Mr. Darcy!
Then we created this brilliant still-life piece entitled, The Gambling Lobster.
But I think the highlight had to be when we saw a statue and simultaneously burst out laughing because he was totally doing Psy’s Gangnam Style dance.
For anyone unfamiliar with this reference (*cough* Mom) you can watch the music video here:
For everyone else…enjoy!
We even got the security guard to start singing with us.
Then I had a birthday cocktail after reminding Gwyn’s older brother again that 23 is past the legal drinking age.
One sushi dinner later, and Gwyn and I were watching Pitch Perfect in a practically empty theater.
Definitely the right note to end the day on.
But the best part about living with a best friend and loving your job is that every day kind of feels like it could be a birthday.
And I definitely got my birthday wish when the election results came in. *Releases huge sigh of relief*
Oh, and I got to see an advanced showing of the last Twilight movie when I went to The Ellen DeGeneres show.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it into the studio audience. But I’ll get another chance for that in March. I can hardly wait!
And today I got some AMAZINGLY AWESOME news that I can’t wait to share with everyone! But I don’t think I’m allowed to share it quite yet. Since I have a hard time keeping secrets to myself, Gwyn and her older brother Owen made me keep editing while they read some pretty darn good books…
This one might by my favorite picture of them all:
It was a lovely, lazy afternoon… until they decided to drag me up a fricking mountain.
Gwyn just shook her head in disbelief and said, “you wanted to go!”
And since she is cooking my dinner, I plan to smile and nod…while I whimper in pain.
Still, the view of LA at sunset is completely worth the blisters. A great time was had by all.
I hope you enjoyed all the photos! Keep checking in for that AMAZINGLY AWESOME news I’ve promised to share!
