Five Things Friday

Happy Friday everyone! Today is an especially nice Friday's my birthday! With that in mind, today's blanks are about nothing but birthdays!

1. This year for my birthday, I turned/am turning   25  and I did/will:  go to this big genomics conference that always falls exactly on my birthday every year.....and then on Saturday I am having breakfast with DD! My parents also wanted to come visit one of the days this weekend for lunch.

2. A birthday tradition I have is: I usually just go out for dinner with friends because our house is usually too boring/messy to have a party in. Our lab usually has some sort of surprise celebration (disguised as a lab meeting) too!

3. My favorite kind of birthday cake is: German chocolate since that is what my parents always got for anybody's birthday when I was growing up...but really any kind of cake is delicious!

4. My astrological sign is  Virgo  and birthstone is  sapphire.

5. Someone famous who shares the same birthday: Gustav Holst (composer of the orchestral work The Planets), and apparently also Stephen King and Bill Murray.

My favorite thing from around the web this week is: These DIY Halloween Bottles and Spice Jars! I'm definitely excited for Halloween already!

Have a great weekend everybody!
