Happy "No Biggie" 30th Birthday for me!

It was a very very special day for me. On the 15th, since my friend C wants to pick me up after work and then drop me off at home, so I carpooled with Andrew in the morning. Before we went to work, Andrew stopped by Starbucks and get my breakfast, he knows how much I love Starbucks. It wasn't a good day at work. I got pulled out from a project that I liked a lot, lots of challenges. So I was quite upset about it. Jennsquared stopped by my desk and gave me a present and a card and wished my happy birthday. How nice of her.

At 2:30, all of my co-works celebrated my birthday with a cake and a card. They sang me a happy birhday song, so touching.

Then around 6pm, my friend C came picked me up at work. She didn't tell me where we were going, only told me that she would just like to hang out with me for a while, then she would dropped my off at home, so that Andrew could celebrate with me. Then we went to get a Birthday Girl tiara, and stopped by TGIF for a drink. Then she took me to a restaurant called Kumo in Hamden, once she parked, she made me covered my eyes and walked across the parking lot. Once I got it, uncovered my eyes, I saw several of my friends. Jennsquared, Julee, Zack, Anne, and of course Andrew. It was a big surprise! We had Hibachi there, awesome food, awesome entertainment! They gave me a card and 2 gifts, which are still being shipped. I was soooo excited and glad that they could be there and celebrate with me, even thought there were couple of my friends couldn't make it to the dinner, I knew they were thinking of me, and I felt so loved!!!

Besides my friends, my family also took some actions. My parents sent me lucky money; Becky, my sister-in-law and Grammy called. Got a card from Gramma, got "The card of the year" from my parents-in-law. It's big, and it's Hello Kitty, can't top that!

I also got lots of birthday wishes on Facebook. It's a great place to connect with friends and family, close and far. I would like to thank every one who has participated part of my "no biggie 30th" birthday. It was warm, surprised and loved. More pictures here...

You may have noticed how long I haven't updated my blog, it's because I haven't accomplished any knitting project lately. However, tonight, I have finished the Minimalist for C, I just need to sew the pieces together, and it will be done, and then I can move on to a new project.
