My actual birthday was yesterday, the big 2 5.
I celebrated at work on Thursday, since we were off on Friday for Easter. This is what I walked into Thursday Morning. As you can see there are pink streamers hung from the ceiling, balloons hanging from the ceiling, balloons on the floor, confetti on my desk and much much more!
My happy Birthday crown and pin.
My confetti'd desk..they were stars, balloons, happy birthday sayings.
In addition, I beautiful flower arrangement, lunch at Olive Garden, a gift certificate for a SPA DAY and happy birthday sung to me with my very own birthday cake back at the office.
I honestly, couldn't have asked for a better response for my bosses. It's good to know they appreciate me and all my hard work and it doesn't go unnoticed. I could really use a raise but this made me feel so much better and able to hold out a little bit longer.
Yesterday my family sang happy birthday to me as we typically do and gave me cards, very low key and typical. I had some very sweet cards and a little extra cash is always nice.
I decided I was going to actually make a deal of it and get a few girlfriends togather (even if it is Easter weekend) and go to my old bar I worked out. I have a hook up and I wanted everyone to not break the bank to come out and have a good time. In the end it was my childhood best friend, my middle school best friend and a girl im cool with from high school. We had an amazing time and they even brought out a sparkler champagne bottle.
Sadly, even though I thought I would surely be the one sick, one of my girlfriend passed out cold. I've worked in a bar for a while and I've never seen someone go out cold like that. Once the bar security carried her out she stood up said she was fine and passed out away. It was soo scary! I've never seen that happen and I knew at that point she couldn't drive home nor be home alone by herself overnight. Eventually, my girlfriend and eye took my other girlfriend home and thankfully her mom was there watching her daughter so I knew she would be safe.
Overall my 25th birthday was a success on all fronts and I feel immensely blessed to have such amazing people in my life.
