Birthday Surprises

Hi everyone!

On the 30th, I turned 26 years old. I feel like an oldie now... ;)

Before I had to head in to work, I was woken up to breakfast in bed! How sweet is that? Louis went to McDonalds (lol), came home and put it on a plate. It was so adorable!! I have never had breakfast in bed so I think I could definitely get used to it.

I also got surprised with cupcakes from my favorite, local cupcake spot. They were closed on my actual bday so Louis drove over on Sunday and picked them up. He got a million different flavors and I wish I had a photo but I ate them all! haha. My favorite one, Peanut Butter Chocolate, is a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and broken up Reese's cups on top. I often refer to that one as the sex cupcake because it IS AMAZING and better than sex. HA!

Anyways, went to work. That sucked... got off at six and drove home to this....

My very own backyard oasis complete with tent with netting to keep the bugs away (from my in laws), a fountain with lights in each level (from Louis), chairs with new cushions, plants (from my sister in law) and even a chandelier! 

My Birthday was just full of surprises and so many people were so sweet! I got a mini cake from a friend, Penny, at work. A gift card to my favorite place to eat, B DUBS!!, and these awesome nail polish films, from my friend/coworker, Laurie. Cards from everyone, gift card to Kohl's from my sis, $$$ from my Mom, Carol's Daughter Almond Cookie shower gel and moisturizer (smells soo good!) and pajamas from my Aunt. And lots of calls from everyone! I am one lucky girl. 

Thank you to everyone for helping me get over my Birthday Blues... it means everything!
