In Which I Turn A Year Older

Well today at 4:32 PM I will turn a year older. At 4:34 PM Twin will turn a year older.

Yep, we've reached 30.

Good times!

We had the last few days off from work and played a lot of racquetball, ate at delicious restaurants (probably too much) and played a lot of Halo: Reach.

We also got new tattoos!

We decided to get nerdy twin ones, cuz we're nerds like that.

Here's Twin's:




Here's mine:





And by our tattoos combined, we make a heart!







We got most of our birthday presents from the fam, though a few are still on their way. Check out all these awesome books I've gotten so far!





It was actually really hard to pick which one to read next. I can't wait to get through them all.

What about you, do you do anything fun on your birthday?

The tattoos are so clever and sweet.

If I get chocolate cake out of it, I consider my birthday a success. :)

Happy birthday! I'm reading THE MARBURY LENS right now. It's pretty awesome!

Love the tattoos, by the way!

Happy Birthday!

When your tattoos come together, do they generate some kind of gestalt being a la Captain Planet or an energy beam of some kind?

[shakes fist] They'd better...

Janel said...

Happy B-day!! The new tats are beautiful and I love, love, love that they make a heart when put together.

O-Tanjoubi Omedetou Gozaimasu! Happy Birthday! *Awesome* tattoes--my sis *has* to see those! She'll just love them... (enjoy that Death by Chocolate--and don't even think for One Minute how many calories. Birthday cakes don't count!)

Your tattoos are so darn cute. Aw, put them together to make a heart… Do you say corny lines when you put your arms together too? Come on tell us. Happy Birthday to you and twin.

Ellie said...

Happy birthday to you both!

The tattoos are adorable. What a fabulous way to celebrate turning 30.

Hannah Kincade said...

OMG, those tats are totes awesome!! I love it!! And it really makes me want to get one this year...though funds may not allow me to...just yet.

I bought you one of the books pictured...le sigh, I will have to get you something else.

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you

(If you'd ever heard me sing you'd be very glad this is coming to you on line.)

Happy Birthday to both twins
And I like your tattoo!

Laura Marcella said...

I like the tattoos! They're so pretty. That's a neat idea to match your twin. My husband has a twin brother, but I don't think they'll ever get matching tatts, lol. I think that's more a girly thing!

Happy Birthday, Sarah!!!

Lola Sharp said...

Happy HAPPY Birthday to both of you!!!!

The tattoos are gorgeous. So pretty. And combined, OMG. Love.
(makes me wish I wasn't such a chicken. bock bock)

You received some good bday swag. :)

Happy 30th, Sarah!

Happy birthday!

I love the tattoos.

Tony Benson said...

Cool tatoos! I like the idea of combining them to make a heart. It's a kind of bond. Definitely works for twins who are close.

Tony Benson said...

Apparently when I said Happy Birthday it was there in my mind, but didn't make it out of my fingertips to the post, so here it is.

Happy Birthday.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Happy birthday, Sarah!

Devin Bond said...

Happy birthday! Those are some awesome tattoos.

Mary Vaughn said...

Happy Birthday!
Tattoos are beautiful and clever.
My daughter and her kids always make it a fun day for me. Since it's within a few days of Mother's Day, we celebrate everything.
May each year be better than the las for you and you sister.

Shelley Sly said...

Happy Birthday!

I love your tattoos!

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

Thanks everyon! I chose XVI first to read, by using the very scientific method of choosing "which one was on top"

Teebpore - if i ever get some sort of super power, you will be one of the first people to know

Hannah - hah! What are the chances? Was it Across the Universe? Or Marbury Lens? Also, the tats weren't that expensive at all, you could totally save up for one!

Hart Johnson said...

Love the tattoos! Those are great! And books are always fabulous! I hope you had a fabulous birthday!!!

Tara said...

Happy (belated) birthday! Those tattoos are superbly awesome!!

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

thanks! And books are indeed some of the bestest gifts evah!

Krista V. said...

Happy birthday to you, Sarah, and to your twin!

KodasTotems said...

Matching twinsy tattos is not nerdy! It's adorable!! Happy birthday again!!

Abby Annis said...

Happy birthday! Hope it was a good one! :)

Nate Wilson said...

I'm a couple days late to the party (wait -- was there a party?), but happy belated birthday! Those are some stellar tattoos, and an excellent haul. Hope you had a great day!

Although now I'm curious. It's scientifically proven that in every set of twins one is evil. Which of you is it? Or are you both half-evil?

Heather said...

Very nice ink! Hope you had a great birthday. Across the Universe was a-freaking-mazing. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I couldn't put it down.
