Just gonna throw this out there – 28 feels no different (duh) and each year has been better than the last. Some people mourn each birthday but I honestly feel like every age brings new adventures. New challenges too, of course, but the wisdom with which to handle them and the grace with which to occasionally fail. Okay – Now that I’m done my little birthday pep talk, let’s get to the good stuff ; )
One: WELL in case I’ve been too subtle (there’s literally no way this is possible) and you were somehow unaware (c’mon guys), I’ll reiterate loud and clear: TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY AND I LOVE BIRTHDAYS AND CELEBRATING AND CAKE AND LITERALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT BEING THE CENTER OF ATTENTION so please feel free to visit me on every social media platform to join in on the celebrations. Also, even numbers are cool so 28 is pretty much my jam. Carry on ; )
Two: Something else I’ve also mentioned 427 times is our epic first annual beer tasting from last weekend. Full post coming soon (because I know you can’t get enough) but I figured a few recommendations might be nice heading into the weekend, if you’re a fellow brew lover like me! Our top picks from the tasting were Deschutes Fresh Squeezed and 21st Amendment Blood Orange IPA and I also quite enjoyed Alpine Beer Company Windows Up.
Three: We’re headed to Agave tonight for some Cinco de Birthday Mexican cuisine and I can’t wait to get my hands on their amazing fish tacos. It’s BYO but (shhh) I don’t like tequila or mojitos so I might bring along these Mixed Berry Mules – unless you guys have a better vodka based cocktail I could try?
Four: I’ll be honest – when I first joined boot camp about a year ago, I was only in it for the workouts. The gym is a really awesome community but I was 1. shy (yes, seriously) and 2. too busy to make room for more friendships (cop out). I’ve since come around from those nonsensical excuses and I really really really love working out with my 7pm gals – who upon finding out that I blogged, proceeded to inform me how much they enjoyed “stalking” my online life. HEY GUYS SEE YOU MONDAY NIGHT!
Five: The real reason you scrolled this far… Giveaway! Since I can’t celebrate in person with all of you (though nothing would make me happier) I figured we could settle for a virtual coffee date instead : ) Enter below to win $10 to Starbucks and pretty please snap me a photo of you enjoying your iced coffee/mermaid frap/vanilla scone/whatever it is your little heart desires! snapchat: @jregerman
