So yesterday I turned 25 - yes, that is one quarter of a century (people keep reminding me of that). I had a wonderful day and weekend, and get to celebrate again this coming weekend!

I woke up to my hubby singing his version of Happy Birthday and then French Toast that he made for me. Thank you Randy! Then it was off to work, where my cube was decorated by my fun co-workers. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture of it, but let's just say I had to almost crawl out of my cube any time I needed to get something. :) My parents and brother surprised me with a beautiful flower arrangement of yellow daisies and roses. Daisies are my favorites (along with tulips)!

Laura (co-worker) took me to Olive Garden for lunch for some yummy soup and salad. Then back to work for the afternoon. I got home and Randy was so antsy for me to open my gift. So I did and guess what? He got me a cool, flexible tripod for our camera! It is like a Gorillapod, but a different brand and made for heavier cameras. I am so excited to get to use it on our next trip. Currently it is wrapped around Randy's bike, holding my camera. Silly boys!

Randy, Sonia, and Bruce took me to Outback for my birthday dinner. The steak was wonderful and I got a cool chocolate ice cream dessert because it was my birthday. And no, I didn't have to sing or dance for it. :) Although Randy tried really hard to make me believe I had to...lol!

Love this pic minus the glare from the blinds.

That's better.

My birthday was a very blessed day. I got so many calls, emails, and messages from family and friends wishing me a happy birthday. I am very blessed. Can't wait to see what happens in the coming year!

Happy Birthday (in a day late sort of way)! Did you know that you have the same birthday as my mom? Have fun with the gorilla pod.
