Thank you all for such warm birthday wishes!! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say hi. As a whole, my birthday wasn't too bad. Other than the pouring rain....all day. Seriously, I have no idea how the Universe knows to rain on May 4 every year....they must have a perpetual calendar or something.
Let's just get the negative stuff out of the way, so I can end on a high note. Rain.....covered that. Work was a little stressful due to my boss being scattered yesterday. G-man didn't do the dishes from dinner....so I will have to do them. But the "best" of the bunch.....my PARENTS called the house before I got home, and since I wasn't there, they told G-man to just tell me Happy Birthday. My freakin' parents couldn't call my cell or even call my house later to actually wish THEIR DAUGHTER a Happy Birthday. Nope....just a second hand message.
On to the positive.....I know you are all dying to know what I did for myself. Because I just hold that much importance in your life. :) I did get my brows waxed ($11 with tip). I bought myself a very cool book and book mark (used up a few small gift cards, leaving $21 balance). AND....I bought some hair bling. I got a few sparkly hair barrettes and clips....every girl needs some bling ($48....a little steep, but it was my birthday)!!!
G-man made dinner (grilled chicken and steak tips, grilled veggie kebabs, and brown rice....my choice). Bossy got me a new coffee thermos for the car. Sassy got me an apron ("because it matches the oven mitt I got you for Mother's Day last year." She is so smart!). G-man got me some candles.
I was fortunate to have friends call, send e-cards, and even a few surprise gifts!! (A cool hot pink purse, some Pampered Chef stuff, and a gift card to an accessory place).
As a whole...it really was a good birthday. I even got flirted with by the counter guy at the coffee place in the morning. I have impossibly high standards, so there are a few things that I wish G-man had said or done....but that is all a work in progress.
But as a whole.......I will put this Birthday in the WIN column.
