birthday week kickoff '06

On Saturday, I went out to dinner in Ballston with a few friends. Dinner was exhausting. I barely ate. Being the perfectionist that I am, I desperately wanted for everyone to get along. I invited friends from the vastly different aspects of my life—work, old work, blog, Hokies, etc. I so wanted everyone to get along which is no easy task when there isn’t a common denominator in a large group (like work for example). Despite the fact that I should’ve created name tags for everyone that was there, I was very happy to see that everyone got along just fine. And my boss was a big hit, apparently.

I got a little goofy with the action shots but Anna was on to me!

Awww…Alanna, Shama, and Wayne share a moment.
can you feel the love?

Here I am with Jesse who is so photogenic. By the way, can you believe how long my hair is?

Like I said yesterday, we followed up dinner with a trip to Bailey’s to watch the USC/Arizona State game.

Here I am again, sitting with my favorite boys, Enzo and Dave.

I caught Jesse spending some quality time with one of his greatest loves—beer.
beer, sweet beer

It was a fun, little evening. I had a great time with my friends and I was so impressed with the turnout! I can’t believe that so many people came to help me celebrate! I heart my friends.

Coming up next on my Birthday Week ‘06 celebrations is the home-cooked meal Jesse is planning for my b-day tomorrow, followed by a full weekend of Hokie fun in Blacksburg.
