Yesterday was my birthday.
I totally forgot to post about it here.
Sometimes I don't like my birthday. It's right after Christmas and people often forget about it.
We don't have a lot of money around my birthday because Hello, it's right after Christmas.
I usually get time off around the holidays and my birthday always falls either right on or around the time I have to go back to work.
Then there's the whole getting really darn old and still not becoming a Mom thing.
But this year my birthday was awesome. I am so fortunate to have such wonderful friends and family to shower me with love and good wishes. Oh yeah, and presents. :)
This is what greeted me when I first got to work yesterday:
My co-worker(and friend) DeAnn totally decorated my desk! So sweet. She also had balloons, and flowers, and a cake waiting for me too. So nice.
Here we are together
Around 11:00 a.m. a delivery guy came to the office and delivered this from my sister(whose birthday also was yesterday)
Oh my gosh, this was soooooo beautiful and so yummy too. And huge! The entire office said to say thanks to you Lisa, because we all enjoyed eating this so much.
DeAnn also got me a plaque with a beautiful saying on it(that I will take a picture of and post later), plus a gift card to my favorite restaurant, Lucille's AND movie tickets AND lip gloss. Way too much stuff! Thank you so much DeAnn. You rock!
Then DeAnn and my other co-worker Liz took me out to lunch where Liz gave me the most beautiful scrapbook kit(again, will post pictures later).
Later Joe brought me more flowers and balloons and a giant chocolate chip cookie!
When I got home from work there were two packages waiting for me from my sister.
She got me a Lake Tahoe sweatshirt, plus a long sleeved T-shirt, a Brighton charm bracelet which I will HAVE to post pictures of because it so so beautiful and she chose the charms herself, plus a pair of shoes and a blouse I had wanted from Land's End. Too much stuf!!! I am so lucky!
After all of that fun we headed to Disneyland! Did you know you get in free on your birthday during 2009? Well you do! And since I already have a pass, they gave me a giftcard for $69.00 to spend as I please! How awesome is that? We spent two hours at Disneyland before heading home for cake and I passed out soon after.
I also had many, many birthday wishes on Facebook and I loved reading every single one of them. Thanks so much everybody!
It was one great day and I am very very blessed.
