Silver Lining: birthday girl

birthday girl

My birthday this year couldn't be contained. It was a drawn-out, amazing celebration. Here are a few highlights, with pictures brought to you from Instagram, so please excuse the quality (follow along @brookejanette). 

The actual day of my birthday was the last day of school before winter break. My students finally got to meet the illustrious Mr. Emery, and they were soooooo excited. He was a huge hit ("you didn't tell us he was so tall!"), and it was awesome seeing him interact with my kiddos. That whole day was a party, and I was so glad he could be there for part of it.

mostly I love the student with his shirt on inside out

After school, Sam took me out shopping and to dinner. I loved spending time with him, and it was such a good feeling knowing that I was officially on winter break too. 

the big 2-3 :)

And can we just talk about how spoiled I am for a minute? My coworkers bought me yummy lunch, my students and their parents gave me gifts, Sam spent lots of time with me, my aunt took me shopping, my friends came to a dessert party..... the list goes on and on. 

new watch :)

A huge thank-you to everyone who made my birthday so amazing this year! I sometimes get blown away by all the people who care about me, even the posts on facebook and this blog. So thank YOU for making my special day so great!
