Beginnings of Birthday Postings...

... and HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY to my girl Erin, a great friend of Not-a-Fortune from its inception. 

I turned 31 last month (still not used to saying "31" instead of "30") and my parents and friends spoiled me with fortune cookie-related gifts and outings. In an effort to keep from overwhelming myself, I've decided to write two or three posts about all of this birthday love. As today is my dear friend Erin's 30th birthday, I'll begin with her gift:

(and it was delicious)

The insert reads, "You will find all the joy life has to offer in the years to come." I may hold her to that. ;)

Due to unforeseen scheduling snafus and last minute changes of plans, Erin gave me this gift at her own 30th birthday party this past weekend. It was a great party, weeks in the making. I live-tweeted it as best I could while also trying to enjoy myself. Erin blogged about readying her house (her yard, really) for the soiree at Pardon My Dust and I have no doubt she will also chronicle the event itself in due time. Check it out.

Meanwhile, welcome to your thirties, Erin. May this new decade bring you much happiness.

Next up in the "Allison turns 31 and eats lots of Chinese food" series: Colleen & I go to P.F. Chang's, UnScurvyGirl makes the best Nutter Butters, and an entire box of personalized fortune cookies arrives!


  1. I got you nothing fortune cookie related for your birthday. Just saying.

  2. First, thanks for the birthday shout-out! Second, I cannot be held responsible for the contents of your fortune. It's a fortune, after all, put there by the fates and entirely out of my control. Love ya!
