I came home a couple of nights ago from doing a little Christmas shopping and to my surprise I had a birthday cake waiting to greet me with all the love a mom could ask for in the form of a baked with love birthday cake. Oh my heart just melted! It is so cute. The way Isabelle decorated the right side and Ethan's left side with the backwards 3 (didn't he notice that?!) I thought it was the most precious thing ever and it definitely is way better than the Sprinkles cupcakes that I got last year! Thanks Erica for doing this with the kids--I love it so much! What a thoughtful gesture!
Today is my birthday and I am so excited. It's silly feeling all giddy like a kid--isn't it. But I can't help it--I get to be pampered by spending time with my friends and family and that's truly my favorite thing in life. You know relationships--they're the only thing eternal in our lives--Good company and a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and I am on cloud nine! Even though it's a Monday and I have to work--I absolutely adore my coworker, Rhonda--she's great company and has a sweet heart. It's my pleasure to spend my birthday in the office with her.
Every year I tell people to not worry about buying me gifts but instead lets get together for a meal! I love socailizing and eating is always a good time too! Well, every year there are a few people that just can't help but buy me a gift and this year I have to pay tribute to the thoughtfulness and generosity of my brother in law and sister in law for the "Bithday Girl" gift set by philosophy. I love it! Who knew that they could top last year's Sephora gift card and the Amazing Graze body wash? How totally thoughtful especially since I know they think I am crazy and obsessed with all my makeup and skincare--with it bursting out of the seams of my drawers and purse! But I truly love the stuff--and they truly picked out a perfect gift! Thank you so much!
After all the craziness surrounding this Thanksgiving weekend I was delighted to dive in and test out my birthday gift. It was like giving myself a mini spa treatment and I felt and smelled so good when I was all done! Who wouldn't after using these products?:
2 oz. amazing grace perfumed shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath,
2 oz. purity made simple one-step facial cleanser,
1 oz. time on your hands exfoliating hand cream,
1 oz. soul owner exfoliating foot cream, and
.5 oz. kiss me red highly emollient lip balm.
So, if you're looking for a funtastic gift to give to that special someone in your life--I highly recommend "birthday girl" gift set by philosophy. Even if she has everything a girl could ever want she is going to love this cute and functional set!
