Happy Birthday To Me!

My birthday began with a lil party @ school. It was the second week in a row we had a teacher birthday party in my class! My teaching partner's bday is the week before mine. For some reason, this group of parents would much rather have celebrations before school begins-which makes life hell for us but whatever. We are a no sugar school so rather than have fruit and other naturally sweetened stuff (like cakes made with fruit juice or what have you) I got bagels. I had a bagel 'cake' if you will and that's it. UGH. I cannot stand the sight of bagels anymore. I don't even like saying or typing the word--that's how much I've had it with bagels. I've had a school year chock full of TOO many bagels. I received a couple of individual gifts from some of the children. The best gift was Wendy's Sock book: Oh my gosh! I don't know how my student knew I had been wanting that book and I even told her how I had been wanting it. She said she just knew she should get it for me. :) I also received a beautiful basket full of yarn that I wouldn't necessarily use and some pattern books: My sister sent flowers that are in the colors of the flowers I want for the wedding. I also received a gardenia plant from my friend at work. We (my sister, fiance, and I) had dinner @ Cha Cha Cha. Usually we do Mexican for my birthday but this year I wasn't in the mood for it. Typically I know where I want to go for my birthday dinner too and this year, it just kind of snuck up on me. The cake my sister got this year was fantastical!! It was a tiramisu cake. My sister asked if I wanted to have that cake every year and then she realized we won't be here next year which will be weird. I also finally got my 'big' present. :) I can't wait to try it out! After dinner and cake, I think I went to bed. I was sooooooooooo exhausted.


  1. Happy Birthday Rhoda!!!

  4. I have no idea what the "big" present is either - what is it??

    Looks like you had a great birthday despite the bagel cakes. And trust me, your bagels are nothing like our bagels. Montreal bagels are the best in the world. Seriously.
