When I got into work, the girls had gotten me balloons and flowers, which we're gorgeous.
Yellow roses, which happen to be my all time favorite and don't mind that apple there. It's only been there for a couple weeks. Maybe tomorrow I should throw it.
I have no idea what these flowers are called, but they were BEAUTIFUL in person! And they smelled amazing.
Later on that afternoon the girls threw me a party! Complete with - are you ready? Chocolate PB cake and red velvet cake!!! YUMMO!
My stepdaughter surprised me with a "coupon book" - so, so creative!!! Coupons for free bathroom, kitchen, house cleaning, free pedicure, eye brow pluck (yes, I'm 30 and I can't pluck my own eyebrows - don't judge!!). It really was so thoughtful!
Last night, I headed to my SIL's - to help out a little, and of course see the little guy. After I was there for a little while Dannielle said "Ian got you something, but do you want to open it now or Saturday", now I'm not one for decision making so I asked her what she thought I should do & she said well, I have a card for you - "why don't you take the card now & we'll do your gift Saturday at dinner". Sounded like a plan! I was dying to read the card, but I waited until I got home. She had already warned me that "I might cry", I mean - hello this is the girl that cries over greeting cards and babies, of course I was going to cry. And boy was she right!!
I'm not gonna tell you word for word what she said, because some things I'll keep to myself, BUT what I will tell you is that aside from me bawling like a baby in the car, I read some of the most amazing things anyone has ever said to me - in my entire life. If there is anything that I've learned in these 30 years that I've been on this earth is that family, family is the most important thing in the world. It's the reason why I get up in the morning, it's the reason why the world goes round & I am so, so lucky to say - I have the most amazing family. I am so thankful, on so many levels. So 30, 40, 50 - hell even 60. I can handle, as long as their by my side I think I'll be just fine!
