A BIG ASS THANKS TO ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!
Birthdays are truly not a huge deal to me, at least mine never is but I always try to make others’ special. I truly feel loved by so many of my readers that I did feel some special and maybe even proud today!
Be sure to visit my guest post over at “I’m an Okie”. AND if you are a visitor from I’m an Okie, I suggest you look at my older posts since I’ve taken a few days off from “serious” blogging. Believe me, I write some good stuff, but my birthday put my blog on the back burner.
Good thing I was occupied most of the day!
I got up to a good yoga class to work out a bit in the morning and then decided to get myself a facial. I had never gotten one before so I though why not today? I went to the swanky one at my gym where I got a 25% discount since it was my birthday!
I must say, it was pretty damn awesome. The woman threw in a free brow shaping and neck/shoulder massage! I wish I could get one done daily!
Then Mr. Eden (my dad) picked me up to go to lunch and a movie.
We saw “The Social Network” which I admit I’ve been itching to see (I usually am not into over hyped films like this was). It was pretty good. I wont ruin it for anyone, but great acting from Jesse Eisenberg.
Then I decided to get my self an ice cream.
See, I’m not a “cake” person. Never was. I do like ice cream though and cookies. So we went to a famous cookie/ice cream shop in la called “Diddy Riese. I promised my self to get a cone of real ice cream. no fro yo for me. I used to be a fro yo whore, but I honestly have not had it in forever and I think the real thing does the trick.
My good friend Abby sent me this lovely card
And Astrid sent this:
My dad let me pick whatever I wanted at the mall where we saw the movie and ate lunch, but I’m terrible at choosing anything and especially gifts to myself. So I ended up not getting anything. We’ll go again this weekend to see “Freakonomics” so maybe I’ll find somehting then. doubtful, but maybe my dad will actually get me a puppy (what I REALLY wanted for my birthday).
Anyhow, I’m pooped and i have to teach a bunch of wealth parents’ kiddies tomorrow. Be prepared for the usual “Eden’s Eats” programing with rants, recipes, and what ever other random thoughts I come up with.
Thanks again everyone! I big cyber hug to all of you!
And for the fun of it, share with me YOUR favorite birthday gift or memory. I truly loved my 21st (even though I was in treatment and couldnt drink). My surprised me by coming for a visit and playing charades with the clients and therapists! The site of Mr. Eden attempting to do the “pulp fiction” dance in front of a bunch of eating disordered girls is priceless!
