Photo Dump Wednesday: Another year of blessings...

I celebrated my birthday last week Thursday. It was definitely an awesome celebration and considering we had just gotten back from my sister's wedding a couple of days earlier, J and JOE did an awesome job making it an extra special day for me.
I typically take the day off on my birthday to celebrate me and give me a chance to re-evaluate and be thankful for my life, my family and my friends. But because I had just gotten back to work from some time off the day before, I ended up going into work and leaving 2-hours early.
What did I do with my 2-hours? I SLEPT!!! I know, sounds boring but it felt like the best sleep I have had in the last year! It was soooo good to get a solid 2-hours of uninterrupted during the day :-D.

J ordered me a bouquet of my favorite roses (yellow roses). They were to be delivered to my job but due to scheduling issues and my leaving early, the flowers were not delivered at my job. Instead, J had to pick them up and bring them home. It was still a beautiful and pleasant surprise :-D.

I love the cards that my friends and family take the time to write up and send me on my birthday. It truly makes my day.

And of course, no birthday would be complete without my favorite cupcakes from Red Velvet Cupcake. LOVE that place! Thanks J for always thinking of cute ways to make my birthday awesome!

JOE got me a $50 gift card to DSW! Now, that's MY child :-D. Totally knows the way to her mom's heart.

On Saturday, while J's parents watched JOE, J and I went out for dinner and frozen yogurt to celebrate my birthday. We had a great time. Oh and stay tuned for my next hair update post.

I know it is not TBT but this was just too cute not to post. My mom had this laying around when we went to MA last week. My older brother is on the right, I am on the left and we have a family friend in the middle. By the way, those red shoes I have on were my ALL TIME favorite shoes when I was a kid! I immediately recognized them when I saw the picture. Oh the memories :-D.

Have an awesome hump date. Hope the rest of your week is TERRRRIFIC!
