Great Day


Yesterday was a great day ... it was so nice!

Conrad sent flowers- and not just ANY flowers, but a bouquet- the same as my wedding bouquet- the Star Gazer Lillies ... (which are a symbol of wealth and prosperity) this morning when I woke up, I could smell them all over the house. He also took me to dinner and gave me my favorite- Bath and Body Works! My friend Sunny sent me a Bath and Bodyworks gift card- SCORE!!!- and my mom sent $50 which I have decided to spend on since they are offering free shipping and there are two books I REALLY REALLY want ... the Florida side of the family sent me a very pretty vase and a book ... (and that vase came in handy for my flowers!) I got lots of emails and phone calls and I think 6 or 7 cards in the mail at home from friends and family ... and today I got to work and my cubicle is all decorated and I got some bath salts from Pier One from my friend Sherry - we are also having an ice cream social today at work.

It was a great day ... and looks like it will continue into today ... so many people remembered- you guys are great!!!
The sale papers come out today for HEB and Kroger and you know THAT always makes my day! I had a buy one get one free last night for my birthday AND the restaurant we went too gives free appetizers on Tuesday's so we were barely able to walk out of there. I ended up boxing up a lot of my and Conrad's leftover food for me to have at lunch today and also we had ordered queso (not knowing we were getting free apps) so we didn't touch that. I boxed it up too and tonight I'm going to bake some chicken and then top it with the leftover queso. I think it will be great- I don't like to see stuff go to waste!
Happy Wednesday to you all ..
