My Happy Birthday and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I had the best birthday weekend and it even continued to today. I always have loved St. Patrick's Day because my birthday is the day before. My mom always tells me the story of how when little baby girls were born they would put a pink bow in their hair or on their head. I was special and had a green bow in my hair because I was born the day before St. Patrick's Day!!

My birthday celebrations started on Friday when I received flowers from a teacher and a gift from another teacher. That evening I went to our local Irish restaurant/bar called Logan's with two other teachers that I work with! It was delish! Then, we went to see a lot of our students perform in the musical "Aladdin", which I love all Disney movies so I was so excited. It was so cute and the students loved that we came! I almost broke out into song during "A Whole New World". Ha!

Sunday was my 24th Birthday! I went shopping with my mom for some spring clothes, which I have no idea when I will be able to wear them because it's not getting any warmer! Ha! Then, my parents, Wally, and I went to Olive Garden for dinner. Finally, they sang to me and I blew out the candles on a chocolate covered strawberry cheesecake, which was the best thing I had ever eaten!!!! My mom found the recipe on Pinterest. I had a very blessed birthday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!! I went to school all decked out in green and clovers with birthday treats to share with my students. When I arrived to my classroom there were streamers, banners, decorations all over the room for St. Patrick's Day and my birthday! Some teachers had people bring in green foods too. The teachers at my school are so sweet. I LOVE my job!
