Early birthday gal

I got into work today, regular Wednesday... thinking about making tea, thinking about what for lunch...

And I get into my suite, pop my key in my door and then something clicks in my peripheral vision. I back up and actually look at my door. There's brightly colored stuff all over my door! A banner, and a headband and a fairy wand. A birthday-girl pin and a card. A gift bag with glittery hair pins, hot pink fingerless gloves (which make me sorely regret that I'm missing a 90's party this weekend), and some other brightly colored cute things.

I immediately started laughing. My boss and co-worker came over to my office* early (they both get in at 7:30) to decorate my door. And I think to myself... why did they do this today? And then I called my co-worker and she said "well, we knew you're probably working from home tomorrow because it's Thursday." HA! So true. They're cleverer than I am.

My god, I'm so fucking lucky. I have the best office ever. Last year everyone at my old college forgot my birthday (even though we regularly celebrated everyone's birthday, including homemade cake). Kswiss didn't have any money to get me much (having a birthday near Christmas fucking sucks). I was seriously bummed until I visited my sister and when she heard she bought me an ice cream cake.

*I'm temporarily on loan to a different department but I am still an IE gal!

P.S. There is a lot going on in my life right now that I haven't talked about. Because of this, I haven't had opportunity to take outfit of the day photos for a while. There are some on my G+ album that I haven't linked but none for the past week. If you check out my sis's blog, there's a really cute picture of the two of us at her baby shower!
