Birthday Eve

I work with great people.  At work today, I received gift after gift after gift.  What's funny is, there was one recurring gift.  It is no new news that I like to drink beer.  My absolute favorite is Michelob Ultra, but I VERY seldom buy it.  It is simply too expensive.  It's a splurge thing.

Among several of my gifts was my Mich. Ultra.  Right off the bat, I got a 20 pack, a 12 pack, and a 6 pack.  Yes, there were 38 beers at my desk before 9:00 am.  We all got a great laugh over that.  At lunch time, my friend helped me take it all to the trunk of my car.

After work, 17 of us (including hubby) were to meet at Buffalo Wild Wings.  23 showed up!  Holy cow!  We just kept adding tables and chairs to this party.  During the party, I was given another 12 pack of Mich. Ultra, and a 6 pack of Miller Lite (a close second in the favorite beer category.)  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I brought home 56 beers today.  How funny!

We had a laughing good time, and stayed later than we had planned to.  After we arrived home, we unloaded all the beer, and all of the other gifts.  The kids immediately dove into the candy.  I'll go into more detail about the gifts in my next entry.

Thanks to everyone who sent B-day wishes already.  I am truly touched.  Wanna see my goofy baby pics?  Check them out here.  

Tomorrow, I'm off work.  We will pick up Kameron, surprise coworkers with a visit from her, and then take her to Brett's work so he can show her off.  Then, back home where I will get ready for the Jason Aldean concert.

Wow, what a weekend.  I want to turn 40 EVERY week.  No, I don't.  It makes me tired. LOL

I know I tweeted a Happy Birthday earlier this evening... but Tweets don't seem as sustantial (or maybe permanent) as a nice HAPPY BIRTHDAY comment. ;p

I saw your pics over at your Mom's. You were an adorable child.

Hope the rest of your Birthday weekend is as great as today.
