Turning 50 at the office

I meant to post this last night…

Lalala! Happy Birthday to meeeee, today I’m fif-teeee!  Was greeted at work with a forest of happy birthday signs along the road leading to the office, and posters of me on the walls. And flowers. And “old-lady” jewelry (which I am obligated to wear all day, LOL!) People went to a lot of trouble and I am feeling very blessed today!

Here is the sight that greeted me this morning:

It couldn’t be…

what?They wouldn’t DARE! 

Oh my GOD!!!


He did!

Awwwwww – that is very sweet! I love you, too, honey!

And when I got into the building, I see these papering the walls up and down the hallways:

Sure smells good in here! Flowers from Kelly:

And after getting back from a lovely lunch with my co-workers (thanks, guys!), flowers from Emilie & Michael (delivered in person by Em!)

Also at my desk: trinkets & beautiful jewelry:






I was speechless. Me. Do you believe it? Yes, I was!

Thank you to my wonderful husband whom I ADORE for being the one responsible for making the signs and thank you to my friends Maureen & Paul for pounding in all the signs in the middle of the night. Thank you to my co-workers for the lunch and special desk treats and generally making my birthday at the office very special.

Lalala! Happy Birthday to me! 50 kinda rocks, ya know?

  1. Awww, that’s so fantastic, Nita!! And I can understand why your friends and family would go to so much trouble; you are the kindest and most passionate person. We can’t help loving you!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
