Forty-seven = A Good Day


Though it was on a Monday and I had to spend most of my day at work, it was a good one.

I had many birthday wishes from my students and many surprises.

My BFF co-worker Lindsey had this on my desk waiting for me when I arrived to school. I adore NeNe of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and she has signature shirts with her “NeNe-isms” on the front. “BLOOP!” is what I received and could not wait to put it on for dinner.


My students surprised me with a white board full of well-wishes and balloons. One of my parents presented me with an original scientist painting from her on-going scientist collection.

I even dropped it off yesterday to be framed and can’t wait to add it to my classroom wall.

Oh! And they hijacked my camera phone that was sitting on my desk. Funny!



Last evening, J & I dined on crawfish, a birthday tradition for me. Frankie & Johnny’s Uptown is always the spot for us. The place is sooooo New Orleans, and you never know who you’ll run into.
