How the Birthday Went

Nothing like a birthday to brighten your spirits! I've hit the point in this deployment where I'm pretty stressed and emotional and it was nice to get some extra love. My Facebook blew up, phone calls and texts came in from friends and family, and the best husband ever FaceTimed me from the desert. 

I did have work but my coworkers were terrific both Sunday and today. My one coworker gave me a huge Hershey bar and my other gave me a card catalogue box with peanut butter m&ms and soaps from the farmers market. Awesome!

My husband emailed me an amazingly sweet poem and pictures of the present he got for me and plans to give me when he gets home...

Gorgeous! When we were dating and he was in Iraq he got me two painted wooden jewelry boxes and I love that he kept that trend. He also one upped himself...

He shaved his mustache!!!! Now that's love ;)

My parents sent me a box of goodies... A bone for the Dup, pop tarts and a carrier for them as they are my breakfast of choice as well as moonshine peaches, a charm necklace and other odds and ends. 

Plus I woke up to this cute picture from Dippy!

After work I met some of my friends to watch the Giants game. I was a tad peeved they lost (6 TOs. Seriously!?) but it was a great day. 

Thank you all for the birthday wishes, on my last entry, on Facebook and every other way. Here's to hoping this is a great year!



  1. Sounds like a great birthday! The jewelry box is gorgeous and moonshine peaches?! Yes please! :)

  2. sounds like a great birthday to me!

  3. Yay! Glad you had a great day! I love your parents birthday package. It's always fun to get mail. I also love that your hubby shaved his mustache for you :) I swear deployments and mustache must go hand in hand :/ My husband does it too. Whatever floats their boat I guess!

  4. Glad you had a good day. And yay for no mustache lol!
