Remember the hunt for the beaters? Remember the strawberry cake recipe? The reason that I was hunting the beaters to make the cake was because we were going to celebrate Amy's birthday. We love celebrations in our office. We usually go together and put in a few dollars and purchase a gift certificate for something the birthday girl likes -- could be amazon.com or michaels or hobby lobby or belk or movie gift cards -- fun stuff! We usually have balloons. We almost always order lunch together on that day.
Did you know that the dollar store has the best balloons? They last for about three weeks. I noticed that Amy's balloons are still in her office and they are just now beginning to deflate. Our dollar tree opens at 8:00 which is wonderful. It is right on my way to work so I am usually the "balloon purchaser."
Here is a picture of the cute birthday "girl" . . .isn't everyone a girl (or boy) on their birthday? Isn't that the one day we don't have to be a grown up? (after our 21st!!!) Birthdays are for celebrating. I firmly believe in celebrating life and the many blessings that surround us. One of the many blessings in my life is good friends at work!!
