This year, I tried not to think of my birthday as a number and just as a day celebrating my awesomeness.
My dad and Karen sent me some beautiful flowers at work, which was awesome because people would ask and then I would tell them it was my birthday and they would be all.. “Oh, a birthday! Happy Birthday! You don’t look 28!” Totally works for the self esteem. So next time you are feeling blue, just send yourself some flowers at work!
I would like to point out, this is one of the first birthdays I’ve had in a long time that I got everything I truly wanted and needed!
I got that gorgeous grey purse that I asked for, but sadly, it just wasn’t big enough for my needs and I couldn’t justify the price for a purse not big enough, so John let me exchange it for this beauty.
As well as these flippys. Most comfortable shoes ever. I think this is becoming a birthday trend for her. A new pair of Old Navy flip flops. I also got a new robe from her that I am wearing in the above picture. It’s so soft and comfy. Everyone should have one!
Dad and Karen got me a new Keurig.. hopefully now I won’t wake kids up with my loud coffee maker! I had an original Keurig that I actually got for my 24th birthday… I feel like my in laws got their money’s worth, no?
I got a couple of gift cards as well… and John, Robbie and Rebecca and I went to see The Lucky One on Sunday… so good. Thankfully, I was able to bite back my tears.. I didn’t need John and Robbie making fun of me for crying.
The girls are still at the beach with Mom and Bill and my sis and her gang. They are having a blast and J and I are getting some stuff done around here before they come back.
I think we need to name my new purse… what is your suggestion??
Also.. I have stopped getting the notifications through e-mail on blog comments.. anyone know how to fix that?
I am also lengthening the duration of my E-Meals giveaway… you people need to sign up!!
