There’s A Big Smile Plastered On My Face…

by Kenlie Tiggeman on July 6, 2012

Yesterday was an incredible day from start to finish.  I woke up in our nation’s capital.  The sun was shining brightly, and I had so much fun that I can’t even share it all here.  I had sushi for lunch and skipped the cupcake.  Don’t worry though…There are cupcakes in my future, and I’m not-so-secretly hoping that my NYC cupcake fairy makes an appearance this weekend too.

While I was enjoying what was already a special day, I received a video message from my niece who woke up and reminded her mom that it was my birthday. (She’s three. How cool is that?!)  She insisted that they make cupcakes; the kid is already indoctrinated with her auntie’s love of cupcakes. (Thankfully, she doesn’t seem to love them as much as I do.) She called to ask me what time I’d be there.  Sigh…  I explained that I would visit her soon though not today, and we had a fantastic chat before she sent me the best video message ever.

 

I also received an incredible message from my friends from the Great North.  Seriously…Tara and Meegan made me smile huge!  I wish I knew how to embed their video, but since I don’t check it out here!

I received lots of love from my family and friends all day, and I was reminded that I have countless reasons to be thankful for my life and the people in it.

Now it’s Friday, and I’m headed to New York.  I should reach my old stomping grounds this afternoon.  I’m looking forward to the stellar weekend with friends that I mentioned in a previous post, and it’s so nice to know that ‘the suit’ will give me his cupcake if I want it.  (I’ll get my own, but it’s still good to know. hehe)

It will be interesting to see how I feel about food this weekend.  Recently I blogged about how I don’t have a desire to overeat when I’m around him. Was that a fluke, or is he the magic cure?  I suppose we’ll find out soon.

My birthday was fantastic this year, and I still have an incredible weekend to look forward to.  If I weren’t me, I’d be jealous of me today. :)  I’m thankful for all of the people who love me and care about me who go through the trouble of making me feel special often, especially yesterday.  I love you too. xxoo

I had a great day and a great workout, and I’m looking forward to spending the weekend in my favorite place with most of my favorite people.  Until Monday, Friends…
