That’s right. Today is my birthday. Age-wise it wasn’t exactly one I was looking forward to, but a birthday is still something to celebrate no matter what the number.
Technically I already celebrated it last Saturday with my closest friends, the hazards of a week day birthday. We ate pizza and hung out which is always fun no matter what day it is. I received several goodies this year, gifts from friends and from myself (it makes the whole aging thing easier).
First is these dice bags. I have been dragged into the wonderful fanciful world of Dungeons and Dragons by my friends, so these will really come in handy. They were apparently bought from a vendor at a craft fair, love the MLP print one. Of course a new dice bag isn’t complete without…
…Dice. I got to pick them out myself. I think the colors go nicely with the bags, although that probably isn’t the most important part but it’s still fun.
Moving on, there was only one thing I really wanted to do for my birthday. A trip to the Sanrio store. It was fantastic, one little bitty store packed with so much cuteness. Even the plastic shopping bags were cute!
As a gift for myself, I got this Chococat laptop sleeve for my new computer. Did I mention I got a new computer? I’ll give more details on that later. Anyway I needed a case for it and this one was on sale and too cute to resist.
My friends got me a grab bag. This was one of the reasons I wanted to go in the first place. I can’t resist grab bags. It’s always fun to see what surprises await, and you get them at a fraction of their normal retail price. Plus, if you don’t like the contents than you can give them as gifts or even sell them. It’s a gift the keeps on giving.
So what was in this bag?
On the right is a set of Keropi stickers with a “sticker book” and the left is a Hello Kitty bobble head and a stretchy bracelet with a thankfully removable Hello Kitty charm. I say thankfully because I really don’t like the bracelet part. I don’t care what anyone else says, orange and pink do not go together. Beyond that, I think I faired very well with this pack.
And one last gift was these birthstone earrings from another store at the mall. I know my birthday isn’t in June, but I got to pick them out and I just prefer the June stones the October ones. The color is more me.
So overall it was a good birthday and now there’s more to look forward too. Halloween! In just 2 more days. Just wait until you see the costume I made. Look forward to it.
