Thank you so much for all the Happy Birthday wishes, flist. *hugs* I know I've been absent lately (and I know that's an understatement), but I think about you guys all the time.
My birthday so far has been pretty average. I haven't even opened my cards and presents yet because I had to go to work this morning and I didn't want to make Brian wake up at 6am so I could open them, and I want to wait until he gets home from work tonight.
But I had a nice Birthday take-out dinner on Saturday night and my amazing friend, Sam
, sent me a bunch of awesome gifts that I opened last week. lol She got me Jelly Beans (YUM!), The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide by Douglas Adams (because it's her bible), a journal, an oh-so-pretty Hanson notebook that she made for me from my favorite Hanson pictures, and a Hanson pendant that she also made herself and it's awesome and I love it.
Oh, and Hanson sent me a gift, too.
Okay, so I don't know that it was intended as a Birthday gift at all, but it arrived today, so I'm gonna pretend it was intentional. lol
I almost freaked out when I looked at the address label on the big priority mail box and saw the words "Walker Hanson, 3CG Records" (for those who don't know, Walker is their dad).
But I managed to control myself until I'd left the apartment manager's office and was in the privacy of my car. Then I called Sam
and flipped out.
Inside was a slip of paper that said "Thank you for donating your URL. We really appreciate the support. - Hanson" It wasn't hand written or anything, but I honestly don't give a crap. lol
SO MANY HANSON GOODIES!

I am so in love with these guys right now, I can't even stand it. I don't even care if this didn't come from them "personally", if they had no say in it, nothing to do with it at all.
I. Don't. Care.
