birthday wrap-up...

Birthdays bring out the best in people, don't they.  And I have the BEST friends ever.  Some of my best friends work with me...and they can be sneaky (well sort of). They planned a fabulous lunch spread for me with paper flowers in a vase, presents, cake and all.  Such a treat.  I feel the older I get, the less I expect.  Which in the end, works in my favor...because all of the little surprises throughout the day are THAT much more meaningful and unexpected.

As I left work with half of a cake to take to share with a certain Kindergarten class...this is how I found my car...all 3 sides obnoxiously announcing to the world it was MY birthday.  You would think a five year old drives this minivan.  I had Hunter take my picture for memory's sake.  I think I'll leave it on til it rains... 


From Hunter and Davin... a new lamp in my favorite color.


From Avery (she told me my gift would be sassssssss-AY). And it was.  Can't wait to wear them.



And the biggest surprise was when I was instructed to sit down, close my eyes, and hold out my hands...I was thinking pasta necklace (I don't know why...it was dinner time and I was hungry?)...



meet Eloise.



She was adopted.  Part Chihuahua and part Terrier.  She is spunky and very little. 


I'm not quite sure how I am supposed to get anything done anymore.  ever.

I'm so happy you had such a fabulous day! You do have great friends and are very blessed with wonderful family. I too love the shoes and the photo of them. Was that Hunter's handy work?
