Spoiled Rotten!

Yesterday was my birthday and I have to say that it ranked high in comparison to others in recent years. Nothing huge happened; it was just a cheery and good day, if you know what I mean. I arrived at work, flipped on the lights in the office and my desk and work area were decked out with balloons and Happy Birthday banners. I rounded the corner and there were a dozen bagels and brownies from Panera Bread. Betty, the designer of these festivities had made sure to request plenty of the Cinnamon Crunch bagels in this bakers’ dozen. She knows they’re my favorite. But I will let you know that I did only eat 1! Then when Allison came traipsing in, she was bearing a gift for me and a VENTI (that’s the enormous one) sugar-free vanilla latte from Starbucks (and also a slice of coffee cake, unaware that there would be a dozen bagels on my desk)! So after all this, did I feel special or what!! So all day, with my office d├ęcor displayed, people would ask the number . . . my age. When I proudly said 28, I would normally hear a gasp followed by “I would have guessed 22 or 23!” I’ll take that.
Side note: When I was 21 and constantly being mistaken for a 16 year old, it was a bit annoying.
This was especially difficult during my substitute teaching days. But now at 28, people can mistake me for 5 years younger all they want!

So I get home from work yesterday to another Happy Birthday banner! Jeremy did a bit of decorating for my birthday?? This is so unlike him! He had run home during his lunch break. On the table were all of my wrapped presents and some pretty flowers AND a birthday cake!! It was a quick celebration as we both have obligations at church on Wednesday nights. So I opened my presents, we ate a quick dinner and enjoyed the cake once we returned back home. It was a very special day. Many wonderful people made it that way for me! And here are some pictures that were taken at home to capture the day.

Do you see this cake? Well, let me tell you a little about it. It is from Cold Stone Creamery. It is an icecream cake! It has always been one of my childhood favorites that my parents would often get for my birthday. This one was cake batter icecream, red velvet cake, and whipped cream icing! Delicious! Can we say – day of sugar!

And notice the tiara? You may not notice from the pictures, but it has blinking lights on it. Not sure what the story on that was, but he told me to wear it and so I did.
