I got a Goat for my Birthday!

Okay - seriously. One of the most awesomest gifts EVER! I seriously was so excited for like 3 hours, around 4 pm, I felt like I needed a serious nap!

So yesterday at our Holiday Team Potluck, my awesome team & bible study & a couple other friends at work... surprised me with a cake for my birthday and a gift! It was the sweetest thing ever!!! Total surprise since they had already taken me out the day before!

But then when they said.. "for your birthday, we got you a goat!" I was like... WHAT?! And then they handed me the certificate that said that I now had a goat...

"a dairy goat for children in countries like Haiti and Kenya. A goat nourishes a family with protein-rich milk, cheese, and yogurt, and can offer a much-needed income boost by providing offspring and extra dairy products for sale at the market. It even provides fertilizer that can dramatically increase crop yields!"

FREAKING AWESOME!!!! I could not be happier with any other gift! It was seriously!! Sooooo awesome! And I loved that they had come together to do this!! And not just that.. they had more money to purchase a couple other gifts, that I get to choose from (such as clean water, education or health)... Seriously... I could not explain how thrilled I was for this goat... Am I odd? hahahah :)

You want one? Or a duck, a pair of chickens, or even better ... a COW?!
