It's my party!
Well, it's that time of year again...I am officially one year older today but still, a refreshing 28. I'll start to weep (maybe) when I hit the big 3-0.
In usual birthday fashion, the weather outside is yucky...we actually got SNOW yesterday! As long as these SNOW showers bring flowers next week, it's all good.
Anyway, the party is in full swing here. Yesterday at work, I was surprised by my co-workers with a yummy dutch chocolate cake with cream cheese icing and two kinds of ice cream. I was so touched not to mention being in chocolate lovers heaven. I savored every bite of my cake and there are leftovers in the fridge--right on!
Today promises to be a lot of fun too. My parents are making the 6 hour trek over from Montrose to be here for my special day. I have dreamt that my mom is either bringing or is going to make my traditional birthday dessert--fresh strawberry pie. One year, she even brought the pies with her from Colorado to Missouri, just for my birthday. How's that for a dedicated mom?! I don't know what all everyone has planned but you know something's fishy when your husband calls your mother at least twice in the past week or so. All I have to say is, "Bring it on!" I'm ready for some fun!
