Happy Birthday to Me!

The phenomenal woman that hired me at the dream job
surprised me this morning with this gorgeous boutique
candle from my friend Debi's shop. And... guess what?
Not only did the Ranger return from Afghanistan just in time
for my special day, his wonderful girlfriend sent me flowers!
Yup... She's a keeper!

Mom and dad spoiled me rotten and so did my darling sons. The card and balloon I received from William couldn't have been sweeter. Friends and family from every corner of the globe blew up my Facebook wall with their good wishes and the girl I've been best friends with since we were both 10-years old called, as she does every year, to sing me the birthday song. And, on my way into the office I was serenaded a second time by my favorite security guard! At noon, my friend Michele and I met up with my newest blogger-friend, the fabulous Nikki for lunch and we laughed like I haven't laughed in a long time. In fact, we laughed our way right into being 30 minutes late back to work - Oops!

As if that wasn't enough... The only man on this planet that loves me enough to put up with the insanity and I finished the busy day together with a delicious dinner

All in all, I'd say this was a pretty great way to spend a birthday!


  1. What a wonderful birthday, Janet~ SO happy to hear Ranger is back on the motherland, especially! As good and thoughtful as you are with others, I'd say all of those marvelous gifts are very well-deserved!
    But, who made cookies, or a cake, for you? :)

  2. Wishing you the most blessed Birthday ever.

  3. You are always doing such good things for others Janet. I'm happy that others love doing good things for you too. You are a special lady and I'm glad that your birthday was made extra special by family,friends and coworkers. All the best for a wonderful year.

  4. Happy Birthday! I am so glad Ranger is home! *hugs* Yes she does sound like a keeper! ;)

  5. Happy belated birthday Janet!! And great news that the Ranger is back in the States too! Many reasons to celebrate.
