Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and to those who took advantage of my birthday sale. It was a big success! My actual birthday was a really awesome day. We headed up to Milwaukee to see my brother’s band Jaill play Friday, May 4 – but their show started after midnight, so really the very early hours of my birthday, Sat May 5. The band wished me a happy birthday – how fun! After some sleep we went to a Brewers game with my parents and my brother. That could have been better, it was a miserable 10-1 loss to the Cardinals. But after that, we went and drowned our sorrows in tacos. I took a nap and then went to see the Generationals with Aaron and my brother. My brother knows the band so I didn’t think anything of it when he went to the green room before they played to say hello to them. Come to find out, he asked if they could wish me a happy birthday too! What fun! So, I took full advantage of my birthday, starting the celebrating at 12:01 and not finishing up until 11:59. It is going to be a tough birthday to beat.
