Why today is a great day. . .

I got 8 hours of sleep last night (see Favorite #16). When I woke up, it was warm and sunny out (#1), and a bright pink rose had blossomed overnight (#5) I got dressed in my new maternity clothes (#3), brushed my teeth (#25 & 26) and went out into the living room. Waiting for me in the hallway was a handwritten card from my husband (#4). Josh asked me if I wanted to go out to dinner tonight, my pick (#9).

Once I got to work, I had an inbox full of emails (#12) from several good friends, wishing me "happy birthday". For lunch, Yvette (#14), Nikki and I enjoyed Subway turkey sandwiches (#15) in the sunshine of the downtown plaza (#21). When I returned to my desk, a large bouquet of gorgeous flowers (#20) was waiting for me with another hand-signed card from my husband (#4). My coworker returned from lunch a few minutes later with a Passionfruit Lemonade Tea for me (#2). And all before 2:00!

So far, this has been a wonderful birthday! Who wouldn't want to turn 28!?

It's one of Starbucks' Shaken Teas. I'm not sure what the "real" name on the menu is but I always ask for "passionfruit lemonade tea with valencia syrup." That is the "old" recipe (or so my sister who works at Starbucks tells me); the new recipe uses a different syrup. I like it for four reasons: 1) it's decaf 2)it tastes like summer 3) my sister can usually get me a discount and 4) it's just about the only interesting thing I can drink lately.
