Hello 35!

Wednesday was my birthday! I had such a love-filled day. I've gotten so many sweet calls, texts, and messages. When I got to work I found on my desk a mocha and a basket filled with goodies.

Inside the basket I found a Plunder box, a shirt, a gift card that can be used at various places, and LOTS of my favorite candy. Also, the basket is super cute and I'm trying to decide where I want to display it once my candy is gone. 

Here is the shirt. Hopefully, you know where these lines are from. I'm actually wearing the shirt right this minute. 

This is what was inside the Plunder box. I adore it. The pendent is a lot bigger in person. I love the color and the pearl accent. 

The biggest surprise of the day came when I walked into work and someone said go look in the lounge. This cake was sitting on the table. Kimberly's birthday is the day before mine. She is one of our janitors and she is the sweetest women I know. The woman cleans up poop, pee, and puke all day but you will never hear her complaining and she is always so joyful. We still don't know who bought the cake. I sent out an email to the staff telling whomever thanks. 

THEN, in walks Ms. Joann, the lady who helps me in the library, and she is holding an Italian Cream cake. Y'all I had cake for breakfast and lunch. Lucky me! She also surprised me with a gift certificate to The Sweet Shop which is where I eat lunch every Thursday. They have THE BEST Italian Chicken Salad. 

Throughout the day I got lots of homemade cards from darling students and a many birthday wishes from them also. I guarantee I heard happy birthday 200+ times. 

Once I made it home I had more gifts to open. Melissa, one of the girls I met through the Powersheets Facebook group, sent me an adorable planner. My bestie Jessica sent me a $50 gift card to Amazon. In the package there was a note saying I had to spend the money on myself. I can't wait to go shopping!

Jack got me a super cute pair of Corkys that are so comfy. My mom gave me a membership to our towns newest gym. I'll be adding some fitness plan to my Powersheets come April. My dad got me what he always gets me which is a card with a $100 bill in it. 

My beautiful sister got me a beach bag, my favorite Simple face wipes, a pair of shoes, sunglasses, and a git certificate to get a pedicure. I'm going to use my certificate the week before we go to the beach. 

My dad cooked fish for the whole family and my mom made a chocolate cake with help from the boys. I couldn't eat any that day because I'd had too much cake already and I was stuffed from the fish, fries, and hushpuppies. 

I am feeling so blessed and to top it all off we are officially on Spring Break!!!


  1. You were gifted a lot of fun things. I hope your birthday was fantastic, just like you!

  2. Ahh! Happy late birthday, friend! I hope you had an amazing day. What is a Plunder box? Are they a jewelry only type of store? Those Corky’s are adorable. I need some of those! It sounds like you were spoiled on your birthday and that makes me happy! You deserve it!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! That is probably my all time favorite episode :-)

  4. Hate that I didn't realize your birthday was the 15th. Happy belated birthday, baby girl. Looks like you were treated like a queen and made out like a bandit. Love chicken salad. Yay, for two cakes! And a gift card that is to be spent only on YOU. Looks like the family is helping to get you ready for Destin. Happy, happy belated birthday. May this year bring you many wonderful new experiences and much happiness. XO

  5. What a special birthday!! Looks like you were loved on by a lot of people. Welcome to the 35 club and I'm excited to see all the fun things the year has in store for your family.
