QUARTER OF A CENTURY

.

Today is my birthday. I LOVE my birthday. Andrew showed up at work with cupcakes for my class and a Jamba Juice for me.
.
I LOVE my Andrew. And as you might guess, Mr. Ashmore is popular with the kiddies too.
.
.
.
.
A special delivery surprised me a few hours later. How gorgeous are these?
.
.
.
.
We laughed out loud at the card. I guess my Mother-In-Law knows me pretty well.
.
Here's a special blog-style shout-out to Joel, Rhonda, Erin, Ryan, Gabe, John, Riley, and Laney. Congratulations on making the blog!

Students piled little presents on my desk: candles, nail polish, bath salts, bubble bath, candy, stuffed animals, books, and warm fuzzy socks.
.
Every homemade card was covered in child-styled tulips. I guess my students know me pretty well too.
.
.
.
.
I must also blog about my new Bath and Body Works hand soap...
.
.
.
.
And my new hat. I honestly never dreamed I'd own my owncamolauge...and be so happy about it. Idaho must be rubbing off on me.
.
.
.
.
After work, I requested Lazer Tag. Andrew, Lane, and I spent an hour dominating games full of elementary kids. I haven't had so much fun since I don't know when.
.
.
.
.
Back at home, the guys made me dinner. I'm not sure why, but I always enjoy meals more when I don't have to cook them. Or clean up after them.
.
.
.
.
Completely on accident, Andrew and Lane both ended up wearing the same outfit today: jeans and navy blue polo shirts.
.
It kept throwing me off! At one point, while I was distractedly working on something, Andrew walked by me with a friendly smack on my rear end. From the corner of my eye, I had been so certain it was Lane that I was this close to dropping him to the ground with my ruthless Tae Bo skills.
.
.
.
.
Lucky for him, I realized the truth just in time. And we were all able to enjoy our Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches in one piece.
.
.
.
.
Now, I'm anxiously awaiting the time to open these babies!
.
.
.
.

Apparently, we are in need of some birthday wrapping paper. Though sadly enough, this paper still works. We had snow flurries this afternoon. On my birthday. In April.
.

Oh well. I won't let it ruin my day. I'll all be worth it in July, when the rest of the country is at 110 degrees...and we're not.
.
.
.
.
Now...bring on the Setters of Catan! Hope you all have a Happy-Birthday-to-Me-Day!
