Birthday happiness

Today’s my birthday and I’m spending it with my mother and sister, who drove out to the Pacific Crest Trail to pick me up. When we got to our hotel on Saturday night, I was surprised by my boyfriend, Alif, as well. Here’s a brief list of the foods eaten this weekend (because this is all any long-distance hiker cares about):

  • 2 waffles
  • 1 milkshake
  • 1 huge mixed green salad
  • 1 burrito
  • 2 enchiladas
  • 1 carrot cake cupcake
  • 1 cup of raspberry yogurt
  • 1 slice of apple pie
  • 1 Snicker-doodle cookie
  • 3 apples
  • 1 bag of popcorn
  • 3 bowls of oatmeal
  • 3 bananas
  • 1/2 bag of carrots
  • 1 handful of blueberries

As you can see, it’s been a wonderful and indulgent weekend. And I have the stomach ache to prove it.
