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?
