Yep, today I turn 25…a quarter century old. Since it’s my goal to live to be 100, healthy, and happy…so far so good 😉

I’ll summarize my plans with some pictures and give a full birthday report tomorrow.

First some of these…


And then (after some TV & digestion)…


And then some of this…




And then…




And lastly…


Except my pancakes won’t be so picture-perfect (or plentiful), my running scenery is not nearly as beautiful nor are my abs so tight, our neighborhood pool is a far cry from luxurious, I will eat way more than 3 pieces of sushi, and our firework show may not photograph so well. But, you get the idea 😉

Question: What did you do on your most memorable birthday?

Happy 4th of July weekend!

    You picked up the book I recommended! Have you peed your pants yet from laughter?!
    This looks like the BEST way to spend a birthday! It’s funny, I have noticed about 90 percent of bloggers have sushi on their birthday (I’m included).
    HAVE A GREAT ONE!!!!!! HAPPY 25th!

    Happy birthday! Good luck making it till 100. ๐Ÿ˜€ You can totally do it…especially with modern medicine! haha, I kid!

    Anyway, one of my most memorable birthdays was when I turned 7 or 8 and a “scientist” came over…my friends and I learned how to “make goo” ahah! It was so much fun! Also when I was 4 my parents rented (? I think…) a donkey! And I got to ride (her/him?). Not a pony/ unicorn but good enough ๐Ÿ˜€

    My most memorable birthday was my 27th. Had a great dinner with my parents at a steakhouse, then we went to a martini bar where there were at least 40 of my friends there to celebrate with me.
