Yes today is my birthday, and I have been having a wonderful day. I went to work this morning. Since there was a exam at 4:30pm, I was planning on getting off work around 11:30am, and have lunch with Andrew, then go to school and study more for the exam. So around 11:15am, my bosses asked me and other co-workers to the meeting/break room, and Surprise, a birthday cake for me and 2 still warm apple pies. I honestly had tears in my eyes.
Then Andrew and I went to Wasabi for my birthday lunch. I had the sushi and sashimi lunch. It looked and tasted really good.
At the end of the meal, I asked the waitress if their have discount for birthday person. They said, "I am sorry, we don't give discount, but we give free dessert." Then they brought out the tampura ice-cream and mochi ice-cream while singing the birthday song for me...
After lunch, I headed to school. My friend Carolina ordered me to called her once I got into school. So, I did, she was like I had something for you. I wondered what that was because when I studied with her yesterday, she already gave me a bath and body work gift set for my birthday. So, 2 mins later, she brought in some cupcakes that she made for me. Tears in my eyes again. We were not drunk, but I felt like I was drunk by the sweetness of friendship.
Then studied more and did the exam. The exam went well, I think, at least I think I am not going to fail that test. Then had another class until 9:15pm. Got home around 9:45. Andrew came down to the driveway to greet me. I walked in to the house, saw a small package from Amazon for Andrew, but it wasn't open. So he told me to open it because it's a gift for me. So I opened it, and it's a Introduction to the Nikon D80 Digital SLR. Okay, Andrew got me the DVD from my Amazon wish list. that's good, that's what I have always wanted. I was quite happy, althought I haven't gotten the camera yet. Then we talked about our day... all the sudden, he took out another bigger box, from Amazon also, and had me open it. He got me some knitting books. We talked some more, and then, he took out one more box, an even bigger one. Tears again. I opened it up, more books from Amazon. Actually he got me ALL the things that were on my wish list. we still don't know why Amazon had to ship the books in 3 packages. OK knitters, if you don't want to be jealous, just skip the following pictures.
Since I just got out from class, I didn't have dinner yet. And Andrew has waited for me to come home, so he also didn't have neither. He was like, let's see what we can eat from the fridge or freezer. I knew there wasn't much in the fridge(since I haven't done grocery for long time), so I opened up the freezer, then I spotted a cake in it right away! He said because my bosses got me a cake, Carolina baked me some cupcakes, he wanted to get me something different which is an ice-cream cake. It's from Billy's down the road on 63. Now the cake has been in the freezer who knows how long, so it's pretty hard, and very difficult to cut...
Overall, I have had a wonderful day today. I think I am so blessed that I have a very sweet husband( I still couldn't believe all the surprise that he came up with for me) and family and friends that love me. I got messages from my SnB wishing me happy birthday. Thanks guys. I really am glad that I have joined this group. I have made some friends, and learned a lot from them.
I love you honey!
