Thanks as well for the reassuring messages about the outfit I wore here - sometimes, you just don't know and you can't put your finger on it, and even if you're not entirely sure it was a ripping success, it's nice to hear that at least you didn't make anyone's eyes bleed.*
And here's what I wore on my birthday, which was lovely and relaxing and would have been perfect, if not for the migraine that insisted on hanging around for a third consecutive day (the obnoxious thing started on Wednesday afternoon and has been extraordinarily difficult to shake off). The good news is the discomfort was mostly manageable and not debilitating, thanks to medications. The bad news is, there were a more than a couple of points in the day, when I just felt yuck, meds or no meds. However, by the time I had finished my very delicious birthday dinner at Cafe Chloe (one of my absolutely favorite places to eat), the headache seemed to have mostly dissipated and as of the time of writing, I'm feeling very nearly back to my normal, happy self again.
Which is a huge relief. Because really, migraines suck. And while I'm grateful that mine don't suck as much as this, they're pretty much the bane of my existence.

Thank goodness for mint-green skinny jeans, though. I've discovered they're really fantastic for helping convince oneself that one ought to get out of bed and enjoy one's birthday and to hell with chronic neurological disorders** or other uninvited aggravations. Even the DH mentioned that he liked them. "They're a fun color," was his comment.
Well played, mint-green skinny jeans. Well played.
*Oh gosh, unless I did? And you couldn't even tell me, because you couldn't see the darn keyboard, through all the mess and gore? >_< Eep!
**How wikipedia describes migraines. Anyone else find that definition particularly unnerving?
