Today is my birthday.  I know I've been celebrating this day like mad since last Friday, but I have continued the celebrating through today.

I started off my day with a visit to Starbucks.  

One of the awesome benefits of being a gold card member is that I get a free drink on my birthday.  The card actually came last week sometime, but I held strong and waited until today to use it.  I also received a free Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal as well.  Of course I saved that one as well and used both this morning.   A fabulous way to start off the day.  

Mocha Frappucino Light.  Yum!  I sucked this down so fast but not as fast as the oatmeal I scarfed down!  

Then one of the fine ladies I share my classroom with came in with a Chocolate Raspberry Torte from Wild Oats bakery.  Oh my.  Such a decadent dessert.  Of course I had to take pictures of this little piece of heaven and send it to my sister-in-law, Jill, and friend, Stacy, who are participating in One Mom In Maine's Clean Food Challenge.  I wanted to do the challenge, but then I wouldn't be able to indulge like I have for my birthday.  Next time, Emilie.  

I also found out that I won, not one, but TWO giveaways today.  First off, I won Amy's giveaway for a See-Me-Run iron on decal that is reflective.  After much discussion with Ward and obsessing with the site, I've decided to go with the Skull on Fire iron on.  I think it will go nicely with my badass socks.  

I'm still not sure what I'll be ironing this onto.   But I do have time.  I might also share with the hubby as well, since there are two iron ons in the package.  Maybe.  If he's nice.  

I also found out that I won Penny's Pride Socks giveaway.  I know for sure I want knee high socks,  but I just don't know!  These are fun. Actually all of their socks are fun - that's why it's so hard to decide!  You should check them out.   What socks would you get?

And I need to add in that I did get in a daylight 5 miler and Ward made dinner - my absolute favorite meal ever - pizza.  What a sweetie.  

How was your day?  Did you do anything special?  Were you able to get in a run?
