That is the only word to describe how I was treated for my birthday! I was absolutely positively spoiled! And boy did that make me feel special!
My official birthday was this past Friday but since I had to work, I decided I would celebrate with a birthday weekend!
Friday morning I was woken up at 06h20 by my wonderful fiancé with a cup of tea, a beautiful card and a gorgeously wrapped present. I eagerly tore open the paper and was completely taken aback when I saw how spoiled I was… Inside the beautiful black box lay a gorgeous silver watch. It is amazingly gorgeous, no?!
My mom’s present, that had been sent a few weeks ago and had been taunting me from it’s place on the sideboard, was given to me next. I tore open the gift wrap to find a beautiful pair of bronze coloured flats and a similarly coloured scarf/shawl. When I got to work I was spoiled even more! My boss got me a voucher for the Saxon Hotel Spa, our accounts lady gave me a box of decadent choccies, and naughty Alice organised brownies to be delivered to my offices by NetFlorist. Talk about feeling super loved!
Saturday evening we were at Gary’s parents’ house for the second parental meeting (more on that at a later stage, but read here about when my mom met his parents) where I got spoiled again! Gary’s sister gave me the most gorgeous bracelet and necklace. And Gary’s mom gave me two (!!!!) vouchers for massages – a full body massage and then a back, neck and shoulder massage.
Sunday I had organised a very low-key picnic brunch at Emmarentia Dam. And although the weather decided to rain on my parade (literally), it did clear up nicely resulting in a gorgeous sunny afternoon! I was spoiled beyond belief by my friends! Firstly thank you guys for coming and braving the weather with me! Secondly thank you for making me feel so special! I received clothing gift vouchers, shopping centre gift vouchers, a beautiful Polo wallet, a gorgeous picture frame, some jewelry, flowers and best of all, sweet-tooth things that I don’t have to share! Thank you once again to all that came, you know who you are!
And to all my Twitter friends for the lovely birthday messages, thank you! Your kind words went a long way in getting me excited for my birthday!
