Sunday after church we celebrated with my family. My mom fixed lunch and we had cake and ice cream. 3 of my siblings were out of town (1 in Texas, 1 in Florida, and 1 in Haiti), so I was definitely missing them! My parents spoiled me with a Groupon for a manicure/pedicure and a gold moroccan pouf like this one I'd been wanting for the nursery.
Not the best shot, but here's a few of my large family! Sadly, missing 3 siblings! What a group, right?!
My mom, Mada, and me. Not a great pic to be able to see my grandmother, but she's almost 95 and totally amazing!

Sunday night I got to celebrate with the hubby's family at his sister's house. We enjoyed a delicious meal and playing with our adorable nephews! (age 5 and 2) Here are a few shots from party #2. It's rare that my nephews will sit still long enough to take pictures with me, so I definitely enjoyed the mini photo shoot!

Love my nephews!
Monday I got to eat lunch with mom and one of my brothers. After that I went and redeemed the mani/pedi my parents had bought me. That night the hubby and I enjoyed a quiet dinner at Sperry's, one of our favorite local restaurants to eat at on special occasions. We enjoyed steak, crab legs, and asparagus. It was delicious and we were both definitely stuffed after that meal!
And Tuesday the celebration continued! My sweet students threw one of my teammates and me a surprise party (they had a little help from the 2 other teachers I work with!). We had cupcakes and they presented me with a book of poems they wrote about me. Precious. Definitely something I'll treasure forever!
