How can one express the gratitude I feel after having the BEST day of all? I am humbled by the love that you all have shown and expressed and I can’t even begin to thank you enough for how you have made me feel. From the moment I hopped into bed last night to now, I have received nothing but love. Here is just a taste of my special day!
***Now that I think about it, I have been celebrating since Hawaii (thanks Babe!) but who’s counting? I will continue to celebrate this weekend as well wine tasting with my love, Paul and Christina (thanks again babe!).
But today was the winner!!!
What I ate:
I was showered with love from the moment I walked into work until the moment I left. I ate 5 cookie brownies (thanks Melanie), 2 homemade tamales (thank you, Steph), 1 Kara’s Cupcake (thank you Jenara) 1 TeaCake dolce de leche cupcake (thank you, Jenny), 2 scones and a latte (thank you, Carol) and one cup of coffee (thank you, Helen). And lots of random candy (Thanks Courtney). Why did I make lunch again? YUM!
A picture of the ooohhy gooey center of the fluer de sel and caramel cupcake from Kara’s on the right. Delish! Note the little duck on top… I AM the lucky ducky!
What I wore:
I wanted to celebrate in style so I tried my newly acquired trophy from the swag prize bag from Sunday’s competition (Thank you, Thread and Effie’s Heart). I wore barely black stockings to coordinate with the sheer top and a small cardigan sweater (Thank you, Grandma). The shoes were a patent black open-toe pump. To top it all off, I wore the over sized birthday hat (thank you, Courtney) for part of the day just to be extra festive.
The love you all shared:
After answering 113 FB wall posts, listening to 19 voice mails and 8 text messages, I felt completely loved and beside myself – I wanted to call you all to thank you personally. Especially Carleen, Teri and Mom for singing me an awesome rendition of “happy birthday”! I was showered with love at work from my dear friends and co-workers so much so that I could not walk home, I had to hitch a ride (thank you, Jenara). I am feng shui’d out with my two new orchids (thank you, Amy and Courtney). My ears are decked with new earrings (Thank you, Carol and Baby Love). I am rockin’ new socks and hot nails (thank you, Jenny). And the kicker of it all was in my mailbox when I got home…
