Even though my birthday was this past Sunday...all of the fun started last Friday. I walked into work with our office decorated and with this sign:

See, everyone in my office uses the phrase, "Feather, like a bird" when an incoming caller needs to talk to me...

They had humongo cinnamon rolls from Grandy's and Braum's OJ to start off the morning...yummy!

Then later that afternoon we had cake!

They are candles on the cake but I say they are feathers...

What is the normal tradition with birthday cake distribution? The birthday person receives the first piece...right??? Well, not if you work with Carlos...he went and cut the first piece and ate it...selfish boys...

But the other ladies in my department were much kinder...I did get the next piece of cake...

On Saturday morning, Jenn & Sara took Lil' Man to see Walking with Dinosaurs...

Afterward, we met up with the rest of my family for a birthday lunch at Bravo!... I had never been there before, but it was very good!

I had the Balsamic Marinated Chicken...Yeah...probably should have taken a before pic...but it was yummy!
Then came my birthday dessert...vanilla and coffee ice cream...

The fam is singing Happy Birthday....

Lil' Man helps me blow out the candle...that is what we're doing even though it looks like I'm whistlin' Dixie...

On Sunday I had a nice dinner at my aunt's house...with cake and more singing! So it goes without saying that I am still on sugar overload...My birthday celebration continued on Monday when we were sent home after only working a half day because of the weather...and we didn't have to go back until Thursday...

I truly enjoyed every bit of my birthday "week" as it turned out! Thanks to everyone involved and all who wished me well!!! Here's to a great year!!!

Remember Carlos on his birthday. ;) Hehe. That was very nice of Lil Man to help you blow out your candles.

I agree with you, we should have taken an before picture of your food! :) but the dessert looks yummie! :)

Looks like you had a great time! Apparently your server at the restaurant didn't think you were old enough to have a big girl cup with your meal though. Maybe next year. Happy birthday again, Feather like a bird.
