30th Birthday (ish) // 200th Post (ish)

What's up, everybody?

If I was a bit quiet on the blogging front this week it's because I was doing a bunch of stuff to celebrate my upcoming birthday. Which finally came today... sort of.

Bit of a candle vs. frosting mishap there, but it'll do.

I was actually born on February 29th, but since that day doesn't happen every year you kind of have to pick a day to celebrate and go with it. Or just celebrate all week because it's approximately birthday-time (which is how I like to do it). Most of my family and friends seem to wish me a happy birthday on February 28th, so that's when the cake happens (though I suppose legally I won't turn another year older until tomorrow...)

Coincidentally, this is my 200th post on this blog... sort of. I deleted the first-ever post on this blog when I changed the name because it didn't make sense anymore, but close enough. Anyway, I just wanted to thank everybody who reads my blog regularly - your comments make my day! No other point to this post really, just saying hi and recording a couple of numerically significant things for posterity.

Cake? Cake.

  2. I was just talking about leap year birthdays with someone at work today! Can I ask like, what does your driver's license say??? Do they go based off calendar years so you can get into bars without hassle?

  3. My driver's license and passport say I was born on February 29th, because that's what it says on my birth certificate. But if it expires in a non-leap year year then the expiration date is usually February 28th. I'm actually not sure how it would work for people trying to get into bars for the first time... the year I turned 21 my birthday was in the middle of the week so I didn't have a party until a couple of days later, so I never got to test it. :)

  16. You got it! Yet somehow that looks weirder on a cake...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I do, and my nephews think it's hilarious that I'm "younger" than the eldest of them!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, I am the first one? Well thanks for the birthday wishes!

    ReplyDelete
  19. All month? How about all year? Then I'd never have to stop celebrating...

    ReplyDelete
  20. I agree with Kate, you should have celebrated all month. And those cupcakes look absolutely delish! ~tosses confetti~ Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Happy Birthday! You are still so young!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hmm, I'll definitely consider that next year. :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't feel especially old, so I guess "young" works! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy birthday!! I'm a March 1st baby, myself (woo, it's my birthday!), so I totally understand the cusp weirdness -- although not quite as well as you! Hope it was lots of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You're a leap year baby! It makes so much sense. ;) Happy birthday and congratulations on the milestone!!

  30. Time flies, eh? The last five years have been sort of a blur. Thanks for the birthday wishes though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks! I would hope your aunt is older than me, unless time travel is somehow involved... LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whenever I meet someone with a February 28/March 1st birthday I wonder if they're really secretly a leap year baby who's rounding up or down for convenience. :) But anyway, happy birthday to you too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha, it's funny you should say that... I grew up hearing "It makes so much sense" quite a bit. Should I be amused or offended? :P

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you very much for the kind wishes! :)
