After my birthday morning trials my day perpetually got better... Thank you to everyone who called, sent cards, gave me presents, spent time with me, sent me emails, and just over all made me feel loved.
I am not the biggest phone talker in the world, but I think I used up all of our cell phone plan minutes yesterday. It was great!
For a run down of the great things that happened:
Stopped by Hope , where I will be working the coffee shop next week. It was great to see people that I hadn't in a while.
Took a toning class at the YMCA. I am trying to get more into weight lifting as my bones get older :)
Had lunch with some special friends at Village Deli: Delicious bbq shrimp wrap with bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato. I even had someone ask me what my sandwich was because it looked so tasty. Julie, Jenny, and I talked for over an hour and then realized that we had lost track of time. I love conversations like that!
Did some work for my new job. I am already learning a lot.
Took a walk with a great friend.
Had a delicious dinner that my husband planned. Thank you Matt (even though you won't read this). Thank you Lavin's for hosting us and making awesome pork tenderloin and a beautiful cookie cake. Thank you Smiths for providing sides. Every time I hang out with Erin I find out that she has more amazing talents. I thought my cake was purchased, but really she decorated it (thanks to high school jobs!).
The only downside of the night was that the girls lost in Cranium... sad times, but I will say, we put up a good fight and it would have been much closer if Shannon hadn't rolled two purple's in a row. I get frustrated when I loose things, but am getting past my competitiveness a bit (I think).
Then we had a late night convo with Matt and Erin. I always enjoy, am challenged, and encouraged by our talks.
When I got home my husband had a sweet and sappy card on my pillow. I am thankful for our relationship too.
Well... thats the run down of a pretty amazing day! Now, its day 2 of year 27 in the life of Traci Rowe... off to set up a wisdom teeth extraction
