On the 12th it was my birthday. I made BTS on Wednesday, so I could take it to work on Thursday because I think all my coworkers had never had it. Let's just say they all loved it. The kids were a little jealous that only the teachers got cake, but I told them I was jealous that they got Popsicles (I had brought all the kids Popsicles) and I didn't. They were happy because there Popsicle had 2 sticks--little did they know I bought the cheap ones! Then I called Jeff on my way home from work to see where he was working for the day because earlier in the week he had been going to Texas every day to help on a job. So he told me he was in Texas. So I decided to take my sweet time getting home. I went to my friends house and dropped her and her hubby some cake because she had never had BTS cake made like this. Let's just say I think I converted her as well. I visited with them a little-told them about my kidney stone experience since he is a doctor... and then I went on my way home. Well when I get home I have to unlock the door, so I had my purse and keys in my left hand and the cake in my right hand and I finally got the door unlocked and was getting ready to turn the light on when I hear... "SURPRISE!" I almost dropped that glass 9 by 13 pan. Scared me half to death. My sweet husband had lied to me and was waiting for me to get home----whoops took an hour getting there..... but to my defense he said he was on a job. He surprised me with the little party blowers and a birthday sign. I love him.

All my presents! I was spoiled rotten!

Bananagrams---I dominate this game. I have only won when playing this game. Any challengers?

Getting ready to open presents

The sign I came home too. Jeff didn't want to be in the picture with me.

My 2 good friends here in OK surprised me at school with a balloon and some candy. My kids all went "WOW...." when Ms. Andrea the janitor said "Ms. Marci you have a special delivery" and the guy from Kings Floral brought me this. It was an awesome surprise. My name was even on there electronic sign outside there building and it said..."Thursday April 12, Happy Birthday to".... and then flashed a name.... then it flashed "Marci Catrone"....but hey, not everyone can spell the most awesome name right. Pretty cool though.

Thanks for all those who wished me happy birthday and made it extra special this year! Bring on the big 22!
