Thanks to my good friend Karin for reminding me that yesterday was the official start of my birthday week celebration! And then I realized that it has started out quite fantastic. Yesterday at work our office manager bought everyone lunch for my birthday. Score! Then I pretty much had to go to CiCi's pizza last night to carbo-load for my 8K. (And I got to eat my favorite white trash dessert- Bavarian dessert pizza. Mmmmm.) And that was the totally right thing to do because I placed first this morning in my age group for the 8K. Ta-da!
And tomorrow is Stake Conference so I don't have to find 7 substitutes for primary! I simply get to go to two hours of church followed by my birthday dinner at my parent's house. That may be the best present of all! ;)
