Yesterday was my 24th birthday. I didn’t do anything too special. I went to work, came home, spent some time with Rex and Deacon. But I took time off today and Monday so I can have an extra long weekend to relax and visit with family. 🙂

I kind of went wild on books for my birthday. But there were a lot out there that I wanted! And Wires & Nerve wasn’t really for my birthday…I just put it in the picture because I love its cover. And Tuck Everlasting and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies weren’t really for my birthday, either…I just happened to pick them up on the same day. I found out that our local used bookstore is going out of business, so I walked there after work to look at their sale. I’m really sad to see them go. They weren’t the best bookstore in the world, but I liked to stop in every now and then if we were close by.

But overall, good birthday. My mom (edit: my mom & beautiful, wonderful sister whom I love) sent me the eyeshadow palette from Tarte that I’ve had my eye on for awhile and a mini mascara from Too Faced, so that was a pleasant surprise. 😀   I’ve never really had any high-end makeup, so I feel like I’m moving up in the world. (She also got me the Why Fonts Matter book, but that was because she bought it by mistake, lol.)

Anyway, I’m going to skip my “24 before 25” list this year. I only completed about half of my list from last year, and I really don’t want to feel disappointed if I don’t get through everything this year. I’m just going to do the things that I want to do.

Thanks for everyone who sent me birthday wishes. Love you all!
