My birthday came and went without a bang………at my request. I didn’t want a big fuss this year. A busy December has left me fizzled and all I wanted to do was put on warm pajamas and relax on the couch, which is exactly what I did.
There were a few highlights to my day though:
The Queen Pins, among others, called and sang happy birthday over the telephone.
My co-workers bought me a strawberry pie with mile-high whipped-cream and a gift card.
The guys that I work with sang The Old Gray Mare Ain’t What She Used To Be. This was Murray State’s fight song, so I was thrilled.
Like every Thursday, I got a killer homemade lunch by Aunt Oma and Granny Garton. Aunt Oma gave me a cookbook that has several recipes from Kyle’s family…..something that I have been wanting for a while. There were wonderful birthday cards that I treasure dearly.
I got a TON of emails from people with birthday wishes.
I received my first official sister-in-law card from Lauren. (Which was signed by Clay too.)
Tonight I had dinner with Erin, a girlfriend that I don’t get to see that often. Mainly because she is still in college and is busy with schoolwork and sorority life. She gave me the funniest card that plays Word Up by Cameo. Totally 80s!
I got the BEST card from Mom and Dad that made me cry.
Tomorrow night, I get to have dinner with Haley, the other birthday girl in the family. I love that our birthdays are only a day apart and we get to celebrate together. I can’t wait for her to open the gift that I bought her.
All in all, it was a perfect birthday. Even when I tell people not to make a fuss, they show me how much that I am loved. Thank you to everyone that made my day special!
