So so blessed

I can’t get over yesterday. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but it turned out to be so amazing.

Thank you all a thousand times over for your wonderful birthday wishes. They were nothing short of awesome.

I really doubted it going well. I mean, I had to work! and there was a good chance the office wasn’t even going to know it was my birthday. I had the debate of, if they didn’t know should I tell them or go about my day because, not like they would care anyway. But the other office happened to send out a birthday week email and there I was number 1 on the list.

It turned out to be really nice. 2 co workers (a husband and wife) thought I was 23. And gaped so much when I said I was 31, I actually blushed and had to leave their office.

One sang to me. And my boss, with 30 minutes left in the work day surprised me with a red velvet cake fresh from the bakery. Where she proceeded to tell me to take it home, eat it all and gain 10lbs!

Not 10 minutes later, a co worker who stepped out of the office, showed up with 12 Oreo cupcakes for me.

My sweet and dear friend, videoed her 2 year old sing happy birthday to me. And my goodness if I could show it, I would. It’s the sweetest video. She says my name and everything. Absolutely melted my heart. My almost 2 year old niece says I love you in the phone (where she’s never said that to anyone)..my Dad left a comment recalling my childhood memories, and from the texts and calls and tweets. Through instagram, email, e-cards….I am truly blessed.

Once I got home, I had to hurry to prepare for the party. I had to sass myself up before leaving and rushed out the door.

The women were unbelievable. They made me feel so special and even though I knew they’d have a cake, I thought the lemon cake that was on the counter was it. But no, at the end of my presentation, they came out of the kitchen carrying a beautiful cake with candles lit, as the entire room full of women (most who I met just that night) sang me happy birthday.

I cried.

I wasn’t expecting to cry, but I did. I was so overcome with gratitude, there was no stopping it.

So the day far exceeded my expectations. Went above and beyond and I couldn’t be more thankful for each and everyone of you. My family, my friends, my love..God has blessed me abundantly.

Happy last day of the month!!!

I am so thankful that you had a great day. I thought of you often especially when I looked over and realized that your "little something" I got was not going to make it to you in time.

So to end the month of....Happy day after your birthday gorgeous!!!

Aw, Happy Belated, Leo!

I love your comment about work. No one knew it was mine either until they started bothering me at 5 and I announced I had to leave because it was my birthday. Made them feel like dookey! HA! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
