The Best Birthday Ever

Yesterday I turned another year older.
27 to be exact.
It was also one of the best birthdays I have had to date.

The amount of love I received through texts/calls, facebook-twitter-instagram was overwhelming.
One of my favorite birthday wishes came from my Polar:
This made me squeal when I saw it, sad but true.
I hit the gym for my favorite workout kickboxing before starting my work day.

My boss spoiled me and made me feel so special, further reminding me that this job is exactly where I need to be and how thankful I am to have it.
I love my job, it has been a full month of working there and I am still as happy as day one.

After work I came home to this:
Again, spoiled.

My sister gave me a beautiful bag that is just SO me, I love it and will definitely get a lot of use out of it. My parents got me perfume, shoes, an outfit from LOFT and a TJ Maxx/Marshalls/HomeGoods gift card which I am VERY excited to use.
My aunt Carol bought me a new workout tank that I am hoping to wear to kickboxing tonight [weather permitting] and a Target gift card. 
They all know me so well!

And last but not least, Eddie gave me this:
And I cried.
I don't cry often, but this gift was so special to me and something totally unexpected.
I am one lucky girl.

For dessert we had cake pops!
Which were delicious and perfectly portioned for this overly stuffed birthday girl, thanks to an epic gnocchi dinner my mom made earlier.

Overall this birthday was one of the best to date. I am so blessed and thankful for all of my family, friends and my readers. You made this day so special for me.

Thank you all!
