Birthday Recap and Thankful Thursday

Tuesday I woke up actually feeling ok for the first time in 5 days. I started getting ready for work while Justin busied himself in the kitchen, not letting me out of the bedroom.

And here is what he prepared:

How lucky am I, right?! I got a little excited about my gift and ripped open the pretty packaging before I had a chance to take a picture of the whole set up. Also, ripped into one of those pancakes. Whoops. #sorrynotsorry

I had been wanting these boots for awhile and was soo stoked when I opened that pretty box and saw them!

I went to school and worked all day but it was still a great day. The people I work with are so nice and amazing, and the kids are hilarious and everyone wished me a happy birthday, and I got tons of compliments on pretty boots.

At lunch Justin surprised me with flowers too!

After school I headed up to my in-laws house and relaxed, hung out, had a glass of wine, and had a delicious delicious birthday dinner with my favorite dessert!!

This beautiful concoction is a brownie with hot fudge, nuts, and homemade whipped cream! 

It was a fabulous day!

Now on to Thankful Thursday!!

I am thankful for my husband. When I had strep throat this weekend he took such good care of me. I do not know what I would do without him. And would you scroll up and look at how he spoiled me on my birthday?!

I am so thankful for all of my family and friends who showered with me love, and texts, and gifts, and cards, and happy thoughts, and everything that was sent my way on Tuesday. I am beyond blessed.

I am thankful for my health. Funny how I said this last week and then I got strep throat. But I am thankful that I am recovering and that I feel almost back to myself.

I am thankful for my MIL. She pretty much stood on standby in her kitchen waiting for me to give her the go ahead that I was feeling ok enough for birthday dinner for 3 days in a row, and I appreciate her.

Link up with me and let us read all about what you're thankful for!


  1. Those boots look so cute! And that dessert! YUM! So glad you had a good day despite being sick earlier in week!

  2. Love the boots, they're darling! I'm glad your feeling better, and got to celebrate your birthday instead of laying in bed recovering from strep!

  3. We are almost birthday twins. You're such a cutey pie in your flannel jammies and boots!
