Sept 10 (Friday) - Shopping with Mom for my birthday present (boots from DSW and a piano book) and I received my free Caribou drink birthday email.
Sept 11 (Sat) - A walk and birthday breakfast with girlfriends at Carol's - so delicious - wonderful to catch up on life
Sept 12 (Sun) - Read the MOPS newsletter, saw they had my birthday listed this month :) - it's the little things!
Sept 13 (Mon) - The Wells Fargo ATM wished me a happy birthday.
Sept 14 (Tues) - Received birthday presents from my parents and since Ross couldn't stand the suspense, I opened them so he could see what I received from them. Don Pablos also loaded another 10 bucks on my rewards card for my birthday.
Sept 15 (Wed) - Extra long (5.23 miles) walk with SJ and the girls. PLUS SJ brought me a birthday drink from Caribou and a sweet card/gift.
Sept 16 (Thurs) - Jeff and Christin stopped by to say happy birthday and bring me a gift - a VERY cute Fall decoration for the house (I LOVE Fall cache'). I also received a sweet birthday card from my Grandma and Grandpa Addleman and Grandma Shirley (Ross's gma).
Sept 17 (MY BIRTHDAY!) Ross stayed home from work because he had a follow up doctor's appointment for his kidney stone. When he came home he made me a wonderful breakfast sandwich and gave me my presents from him and E-man. I also had over 25 facebook birthday greetings right away in my email and my birthday email from my Dad which guarantees a birthday cry every year. Throughout the day I continued to receive sweet messages and texts from siblings, family and friends. Oh facebook ... I received at least 70+ birthday greetings and it was always fun to open up the email box to all of those messages. Ross and I had a fun date night and my sweet mom-in-law watched E-man for us. (THANK YOU!) We saw "Get Low", enjoyed Don Pablo's for dinner and chatted in Caribou over my free birthday drink (I chose a hot apple blast :)). We had some time for good conversation as we look to going to the Church Planter's Assessment in a week or so.
Thank you to EVERYONE who made my birthday this year a true celebration. Many of you contributed to the numerous smiles I had this week. I am now officially '29' for the first time ;) ...
