Birthday weekend, part 1.

You know those annoying people who insist on devoting a whole week to their birthday, rather than their one proper, designated day?  No?  

Apparently we haven't met.

Maybe it's because I'm an only child.  Or, maybe it's because my birthday happened to fall on a Thursday this year.  But for reasons unknown, I hogged both Friday and Sunday for parties.  Saturday I walked around humming "Happy Birthday" to myself.

Friday night was a mini-party spent with me, Ross, Mom, Dad, and approximately 36 menu items from Uchiko.

If I look a little wild-eyed in this picture, it's because the waiter is explaining that this might be the last serving left of the Tobacco Cream, our favorite dessert.  Please note the look of longing on Ross's face.

This next image, below, has nothing to do with Uchiko.  But it has everything to do with my parents.

  These are two snapshots taken 29 years ago, right before my parents had ME.  My mom sent them to me last week, and I wanted to post them right away.

How cute and prepared does my mom look?  Hey no big deal, she's just about to give birth.

So not annoying to have the whole week. If you think about it, one day isn't enough time to celebrate. Plus, I figure the older we get the more time we get to celebrate the day we were born! Have I said happy birthday yet? If not, HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK :) !!

Happy Birthday! Um, I've always hogged an entire week for my b-day...but it's a holiday & I'm usually on vacay w/ friends. Obviously, it's all about me;-)

The pix are great! Your mom does NOT look preggo.
Have a fantastic new birth year!!!

AWE!!! You have the cutest dang parents ever. Hope you had a wonderful birthday Tolly. It sure looks like you did. Enjoy 29. I swear 29 was a weird year for me. I felt like I was 29 FOREVER and then suddenly I was 30 and boom... 32!!! Yikes. Ha! I will say your 30s rock so you have nothing to worry about.

Eeeeeee! I love the new look! Pre-birth photos always freak me out. It's like the calm before the storm.

Hi girls!! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes. :) It is a huge year of change, but I think it's GOOD change. For example, um, we're buying a house? I'm not even joking. How crazy is that?! It's our first!

Brittney (BSimms8907), those feather earrings were a gift from Diablo Organics. I "edited" them a little bit to be a teensy bit shorter. But I think the main designer makes them in a variety of lengths.
