Step 1: Spend most of the day on the couch because you feel like poo. But when your husband plans a birthday surprise you know you have to get your butt in gear.
Step 2: Throw on a poncho sweater and ask your husband if it's ok. When he says yea, you rethink it and throw on some plaid instead. Still a bad choice.
Step 4: Go to a paint party with your friends that includes even more wine.
Step 5: Really think you have a masterpiece on your hands because, wine. I like to call mine abstract. Who needs to see people anyway? All my friends did quite a nice job too.
And on Sunday, you rest after a night of fun celebrating your birthday. You will be 28 after all. It takes a little more time.
