The only thing I can remember about last year's birthday was that they called me to let me know that I had been approved for my weight loss surgery, which was ALL the gift I needed on my birthday...Here I am, 83 pounds SMALLER...read to share with you all THIS YEARS birthday!!!
So my day started off with opening presents with my sis and MJ, seriously, T spoils both of us!!! BIRTHDAY FREEBIES from Starbucks before work, which the kids LOVED helping me finish!!!
When I got to work that day, the Greenbank kids had COMPLETELY SURPRISED ME!!! They jumped out and yelled surprise and had the WHOLE HOUSE DECORATED JUST FOR ME!!!
It was THE SWEETEST THING EVER SIGNS that said stuff like, "Best Babysitter everrrrr!" Pics of us all, banners, streamers, balloons, handmade cards, cupcakes, a special birthday seat, it was sooooooooooo cuuuuuute and I LOOOOOOVED IT!!!

At night my sister made my dream come true by taking me to a place I have been WAITING MY WHOLE LIFE TO GO TO...
My sis and I got the enchilada and steak combo to split and we had a TON of leftovers!!! It comes with beans, corn on the cob plus a basket of mini Indian Bread and biscuits and salad! One of these days I'm going to order the Rattlesnake, just so I can get the shirt that says, "I ATE THE SNAKE!" AHAHAHAHAHA!!!
