Twenty Fun (Round Two)

I know I already have a blog post with this title (see my 21st birthday), but today someone very special to me turns FINALLY turns 21. If you read my last post, you know that today is Dylan's 21st birthday, and we are legally allowed to order some wine with our dinner (because we're so sophisticated and all), and if you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love birthdays. Selfishly, I do love my birthday, but I also love celebrating other people's birthdays, or at least making them feel extra special on their special day.

I will make a post about what we actually do to celebrate his 21st, but for right now, just be warned that this portion of my post might get a little bit cheesy. You have been warned.

Happy 21st birthday to the one who faithfully reads my blog (and recites it back to me even though he knows that is high on the list of things that make me feel uncomfortable), willingly taste tests all of my concoctions (and even claims to like them), is trying to turn me into a better decision maker (though this one is taking a while), opens every single door for me, probably enjoys exercise more than I do (and teaches me the science behind it), treats me to delicious dinners on the reg, loves and pursues Jesus,
A normal WyldLife club
encourages me always, lets me win when we play sports (even though he has got to be the best athlete I have the pleasure of knowing),

calms me down when I'm stressed out, and among many, many other things, never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Though this picture certainly says otherwise

Dyl, you make life a little more fun, and I'm just so glad you were born! 

So, now that we're past the cheesiness - I have told him that I would dedicate a blog post just to him, and I always try to make good on my word - let's continue on with the day's normal activities, shall we?


I did not sleep very well last night, so I took my sweet time getting up and out of bed this morning. When I did, I ate a breakfast that looked very similar to the breakfast I've eaten every single day this week: egg whites with spinach, a couple of cuties, but instead of sliced strawberries, I finished off a personal watermelon that I dug into just a few days ago. When it comes to watermelon, there's just no stopping me!

I also ate a few of my banana-oatmeal-almond butter muffins, which I instantly regretted because I was so incredibly full after eating them, but hey, they did at least taste good at the time!


I visited a different 24 Hour Fitness than my usual 24, but this particular location offered a 12:00pm spin class, which was right up my alley because with the little cold I'm fighting, paired with the cold and rainy weather, neither a run nor a swim was going to happen for me today. The class was tough, because we once again did a lot of sprint work with a fairly heavy resistance. It was a toughy, but a goody, and the instructor was the perfect blend of encouraging and demanding.

And with that, I'm off to get ready for dinner. Happy Friday the 13th!
