How was your week, friends? On Monday, I celebrated my 32nd birthday in style - and by "style" I mean "drive-in movie theaters, awesomely bad motels, greasy diner breakfasts, laying next to bodies of water, eating terrible road-trip junk food, drinking too much cider at 3 pm and then wandering through toy stores." It really could not have been better.
