Lunch was delicious leftovers from a pasta bake that one of my friends had been so kind to bring the night we got home from the hospital. I'm so glad Jon doesn't really eat left overs because I LOVE pasta and taking it for lunch was fantastic! Then we took a short nap together before I headed back to work. When returning to work I found a colorful array of balloons taped to the back of my chair and a card signed by the professors and students who were in that day. I had no idea any of them knew it was my birthday! It definitely made me feel special and loved.
I put some on a platter and headed off to Bachelor night with some girl friends. I couldn't wait for them to try these divine doughnuts! When I walked into the house I was surprised by a beautiful birthday cake and balloons covering the floor. They had turned our Bachelor night into a mini party for me and once again I was so touched! So for dessert I enjoyed some delicious cake and ice cream. A well balanced diet right ;) I told them they could all take the doughnuts home since I hadn't known there would be cake and ice cream but most of them ate a doughnut as well. Can I say I'm glad I've made friends who love sugar as much as me?

|Did it in one breath!|
It was such a special day, filled with love from both friends and family near and far! I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful family and to have made these friends in Kirksville who make me feel just as loved and special as if I was home enjoying my birthday with family. The year of 23 was a pretty fantastic one, and looking at the start of 24 I think it will be just as great!
