{Sunday Social - Happy Birthday to Me!}

Today is my 26th birthday! Happy Birthday to me!! I definitely feel like I am now getting older. Ever since I turned 21, I said it was all downhill from that age ha ha. Thursday night we did a combined birthday dinner for my brother (his birthday was Thursday) and me. Last night I went out into the city with some friends and had myself a good old time..until I got sick. Today, I worked and my boss & coworkers sang happy birthday to me with a buttercake dessert and then gave me free avocado eggs rolls (such a yummy dish!). 

I have a feeling that 26 is going to be a great year. Onward & upward is my new mantra.

And since today is Sunday, it's also time for Sunday Social!!

Link up with Neely & Ashley

This week's theme is what you're thankful for because it is the week of Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for my family. We may fight from time to time and get mad at each other. But deep down, we all really do love each other and do anything to help someone out. 
 The family 12 years ago at Mark's Wedding! I dont think we have another one all together since then, ha ha.

I'm thankful for my friends. They are always their for me, offer an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, and provide laughter when necessary. They are the type of people that won't care if you call them at 3am in an emergency. My life would not be the same without them and I am so blessed to have each one in my life. 

(Just a few snapshots of my closest friends)

I am thankful that I have a job. In today's economy, it is hard to find a teaching job, let alone a job. While I may not have my own classroom yet, I am thankful that I am being allowed this opportunity. I am also glad my restaurant job at CPK allows me to still work there as well to have more spending money. 

I am thankful for my dog, Shadow. She may have an unstoppable appetite and barks at you constantly when you come in the door but I love that little cocker spaniel. 
 Shadow last summer when she had surgery on her foot.

After the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and seeing how it destroyed some communities near me, I am extremely thankful I have a home that is still standing (with VERY minimal damage to it), food to eat and clothes to wear. Sometimes it takes a tragedy to make you realize to be thankful for the small things in life. 

So, what are you thankful for?!
