It’s my birthday today!!!
I actually was not too excited about my birthday because I had already celebrated it with my family when we were visiting at Christmas and celebrated it again last weekend with my in-laws (see ‘Recent Stuff I Love’). However, on Friday, I was oh-so-pleasantly suprised by several of my co-workers.
Friday at work was interesting. I was all about getting my ‘free’ glasses from clearly contacts at noon (and I did score a pair hooray!). Little did I know my co-workers were scheming….in my favor. Paola gave me some beautiful flowers:
Beautiful-and of course my favorite color!
Then, I was VERY suprised by 3 of my coworkers….who obviously know me very well:
That gift card turned into this today:
And a new pretty for my Pandora bracelet:
And the fun didn’t end at 5pm on Friday either! My co-worker Janine took me out to a FABULOUS dinner at Pickle Barrel, and then we went to see Black Swan (that movie was disturbing & interesting, has anybody reading seen it?). What a night!
This morning, I awoke to a Facebook wall FULL of birthday wishes. I was taken out for a sushi lunch, did a tiny bit of shopping (bought a Playstation3) and came home to my entertainment center-completely set up! Can I get a Hallelujah here?
This is the before and yes those are handmade bookcases:
and now the after…..+ a Playstation3:
So this evening brought me to my favorite Korean restaurant for some bibimbab and a diet coke.
As my birthday celebration winds down, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who wished me well. I truly appreciate it, and it means so much! 37 is looking great so far!
*I would also like to mention that I did NOT exceed my WW points, or cheat!*
