She made me an espresso chocolate cheesecake from scratch for my actual birthday, and believe you me, that was a present in and of itself. There really wasn't a need for any further gifting after that heavenly plate of yumminess. Today she went above and beyond the cheesecake, and got me this:
I'm so excited! My blender was pretty crappy, and I used it almost every day. Smoothies are a breakfast favorite around here. I was really wanting a new blender, but since I didn't *technically* need one, I was hesitant to spend the money.
So, thank you, M2**!! I love it!
*For some reason, I stab myself in the finger with blender blades fairly frequently. I've punctured more fingertips that way...I really should be more careful.
**I just want to add that every time M2 picks me up to go somewhere, she brings me a Mocha. She even bought me a cup to keep at her house, so she'd have a good one to put it in. It's gotten to the point where I get in the car and reach for my coffee before she even mentions she made one - I just assume it's made and waiting for me. How awesome is that??? I mean, that she does that. Not that I've grown so accustomed to it that I just expect it. That's not really all that awesome. Did I mention how much I appreciate it? It's like having my own personal barista.
For the record, I'm having a much, much better day today. Getting out of the house helped a lot. Not to mention the coffee delivery and unexpected presents. And even though yesterday sucked, I've now had two fantastic nights of uninterrupted sleep. Mmmmmm....Sleep.....Wonderful, peaceful, non-combative sleep.
