Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! I had a great birthday and birthday weekend. Even though I spent Friday, my birthday, and yes, my birthday is pi day, at work, it was a good day. My students were so sweet and it was a fairly easy day. That evening, some of my friends and I went to a restaurant out in town that had an awesome atmosphere and great sushi.
After dinner, we headed over to the officer's club on base for the St. Patrick's Day karaoke party, just to find that it was cancelled. So instead, we went back to my friend's house and had a dance party. There is just something about dance parties that can make you so happy. I wanted to get in sweats, so my friend brought me out some options. One option was an oscar the grouch onesie. When the question is a onesie, the answer is always a yes. And that's how this happened.
I even slept in the onesie, and it was the best nights sleep I have had in awhile. I now know why babies sleep in them. They are fabulous.
Saturday I did a bit of shopping and took myself to lunch. I really enjoy hanging out with myself, is that weird. I don't mind going to eat alone or shopping alone. I think it is relaxing and I don't feel bad for wandering around the same aisle for 20 minutes. I ate at the best cafe and had an incredible grilled chicken sandwich on naan bread. I am constantly finding cute cafes here and I love it.
Saturday evening I went to an all green St. Patrick's Day party. All of the food was green, pickles, broccoli, guacamole, mint brownies, key lime bars, green jello. Not only did it look pretty cool, the food was so good! I cannot believe how much I ate. I can't go to potluck type parties because I lose all self control and just can't stop eating. I made my famous spinach dip and a fruit rainbow. I saw it on pinterest and it turned out pretty cute!
I wore my favorite green J.Crew pants, because green is my favorite color, but of course, the green onesie came out later in the evening. It was the hit of the party. Onesies for the win!
Sunday I spent most of the day in my classroom. I wasn't planning on spending so much time there, especially since it was such a nice day, but I was on a roll with decorating and couldn't stop. I also had to set up our classroom library. I have finally started to grow my collection of books. I bought 65 books for $40 off of a Craigslist-type website here and was so excited! My mom also sent me some of my books from when I was a kid, which was fun.
I finally managed to rip myself away from my classroom and headed to the beach with Lexie. I have been surprised at how cold it has been here lately. I know I can't complain because we aren't getting ridiculous amounts of snow like most people in the States, but I really thought it would be warmer right now. Sunday was so beautiful and made me so excited to experience spring and summer here on the island.
Overall, it was a great birthday! I am so excited to see what this next year in life brings me. It sure started with a bang, and a onesie.
