Another Surprise

Photo from Gigi's Cupcakes

Back in May I posted about the "surprise" birthday my work team threw for me - the one where the surprise was on them because my birthday wasn't for several months, well they surprised me yet again last week.

I've mentioned work is pretty much full on for the next month, we are working long hours, seven days a week, it's just the way things are this close to an event.  Someone had asked me how I was going to celebrate and I'd laughed and said I was going to Gigi's to buy myself a cupcake and planned to eat it without guilt and I'd save the rest of the celebration for next month.

Late last week, we were all pulled in for an emergency briefing, I was afraid something had gone seriously wrong.  We all go in the room and they pulled out Gigi's cupcakes for everyone.  Somehow in all of the craziness they took time out to help me celebrate, and best of all figured out how to cover my shifts so I could have an actual weekend off, I really couldn't have asked for a better gift or group of friends to work with.

I'll share how I spent my weekend in other posts this week, but I had to start the week by sending out a huge thanks to the great group I'm lucky enough to work with.
