Happy National ME Day…

Today is my birthday. ¬†ūüôā

It’s also the Hot Mess Hubby’s birthday. ¬†That’s right: ¬†we were both born on November 14th. ¬†As if that wasn’t enough, we decided to get married on our birthday…we’re efficient like that. ¬†So today, as my family calls it, is National Stauber Day (our last name isn’t Princess, ya know…).

To help me celebrate, the 7 Dwarfs of the Menstrual Apocalypse are here. ¬†That’s right! ¬†Bloating, cramps, and massive ickyness all for me! ¬†Don’t even worry about getting me a present, y’all, ’cause I’m all set! ¬†I’ve been feeling like a busted can of biscuits since Sunday.

Hot Mess Wedded Bliss – 2003

So tonight I’m going to spend my birthday curled up in front of the tv with my bottle of Advil and a cup of tea…and I’m going to watch The Tudors reruns. ¬†There’s nothing like the most dysfunctional family in history to make me feel like a million bucks when my mood’s in the shitter.

Oh, don’t worry…this isn’t the saddest birthday you’ve ever read about! ¬†We’re having some friends over this Friday to help us celebrate both birthdays and 9 years of wedded bliss. ¬†The cramps should be gone by then and hubby and I will be able to enjoy some cake (yes, cake!) with our pals. ¬†And wait till you see the cake I’m making. ¬†I saw it on Pinterest. ¬†Be afraid. ¬†Be very afraid.

By the way, if you haven’t liked my blog on Facebook yet, you missed a major milestone: ¬†for the first time ever, I actually got to the end of a tube of lip balm. ¬†I didn’t lose it…I didn’t put it through the dryer…and it didn’t dry up. ¬†I used the whole eff’in thing. ¬†How amazing am I? ¬†Pretty damn amazing, I think. ¬†We celebrated over on Facebook…it was awesome.

Today I have no weight loss reports to share or healthy recipes to whip up. ¬†No, today I am just grateful and happy to be me. ¬†I have friends and family and all of you who enjoy my company…and I’m grateful.

Thank you all for being a part of this day. ¬†ūüôā
