Berfday Smerfday

It’s funny how much things can change in 1 year. Last year I spent my birthday in a new place with a bunch of new people. My advisor threw a semester party and had a cake for 4 of us with close birthdays. I hardly knew anyone, but I did get to spend time with one of my best friends who was usually too far away to celebrate with—which made everything a little easier.

This year I celebrated my birthday with the same 3 ladies and people from my lab again, but I know them all so much better now.
I share my birthday with Constanza (aka Stanley), and I can’t think of anyone I’d rather share a birthday with. We had a potluck BBQ with lots of great food and fun. Some music and dancing, some strong margaritas, and even a game that made us all look like idiots. Or maybe that last part was just me.

The birthday girls and the amazing birdie cake that Melissa made for us.

A birthday toast with margaritas.

The ladies at the party--or at lest most of them. We were confused by many cameras at once.

Do you have a real-up-close-like picture of the birdie cake? Because it looks pretty and I wanna see it closer.
