Over a week ago Coco reminded me that my “dirty thirty” was coming up soon. To which Aaron interjected, “With Megan, it’s more like her nerdy thirty.” And thus, a theme was born! I have since sent out evites and invited a few of my closest buddies to my “nerdy thirty” birthday party…
Since then I have had a week to make it all to come into fruition. A couple days ago I did some birthday preparatory shopping and it just got me even MORE excited. Aaron and I were shopping for toys and we were BEYOND giddy about all the cool things we found, running up the aisle and exclaiming “oh cool!” “whoa check this out!” and “is $150 too much for a Lego Millenium Flacon?” (Yes, we decided it was, but not without much back and forth.) But mostly we were in the market for Nerf guns. I was inspired by a wedding I shot recently where Nerf gun fights were erupting everywhere and it was SO MUCH FUN!
Here are a few more things that I’m excited about:
* ordering a pizza the size of a coffee table
* possibly a communal guestbook activity
* attempting to make a robot fruit bowl
* my very first Star Wars cake
* my #nerdy30 hashtag for live tweeting fun
* nerd beers
What are “nerd beers” you might ask yourself? Well, they’re beers with nerdy names that I’ve been collecting in the past few days. Check out what I have so far:
Okay, so we got Hobgoblin ale (a shout out to Dungeons and Dragons), Gonzo Imperial Porter (a shout out to one of my favorite writers, Hunter S Thompson), Monty Python’s Holy grAIL (my ABSOLUTE favorite find), and my sci-fi beers: New Planet (gluten free beer) and Mothership. I’m still on the lookout for more nerd beers. I’m still searching for Tricerahops.
Then yesterday I got a call from my man of honor and host of the party, Erik, who informed me that there shall be a couple of surprises for me at the party! WHAT!? That info, plus the fact that Aaron’s been sneaking around getting my birthday present “ready” for the last few days, means that my mind has been racing and my excitement level has reached INSANE MANIC MEGAN proportions.
I’m telling you, I’m so excited that I can barely think of anything else, which isn’t great because I have a LOT to get finished before I leave for Seattle. But that’s a whole other blog post.
Anyway, cheers to my last day of my twenties!
