Birthday Loot

First of all I want to thank you for all your birthday wishes on Monday! You guys really made my day with all your sweet (and supportive) comments so thank you! I really had the best birthday ever and was spoiled with too many gifts. One I want to show you is this 2-in-1 Miche handbag my sister-in-law got me:

Here's the first cover. There are flaps on the inside that are magnetized and you can flip them up and slip the cover off so you have this:

Here's the shell.

And here's the other cover. The same purse but two different ways to wear it! Isn't that neat? It's the perfect size, too.

Before I forget I should mention that I'm typing this post on my *brand new laptop* D. got me! I haven't had my own computer for about 4 years because my cat pushed a Buddha statue off of my window sill which landed on my then-laptop and broke it. (Thanks Kitty.) I never got around to replacing it, I actually lived without the internet in my home for almost 3 years can you believe that??? How did I FUNCTION??? Lord only knows! So now I have my very own thanks to my generous boyfriend : ) who is also happy because now I won't have to upload gazillion pictures on his computer.

Something else I "received" on my birthday was this surprise at work:

Two of my male coworkers who are also close friends of mine thought it would be "funny" to decorate my office and plastic-wrap my chair. I swear they wrapped it 50 times because I couldn't even cut into it with scissors, I needed an exacto knife. The post-its and balloons say either "30" or "29A" which I prefer ; ). My snickering friends were pretty pleased with themselves and all their hard work and I have to admit I was impressed! They took me out for lunch, too and after work D. and I met my family for dinner at a Thai restaurant. The food was soooo good! It was a perfect day.

I hope you're having a great week. We're halfway to the weekend, woot! woot!
