Birthday Goodies

Well, hello everyone. It has been a month since I last posted. Wow!! I would like to say in that time I have accomplished so much. Truth is, I haven't done much of anything. A new project here or there and just stuff. Nothing exciting so I didn't feel the need to bore you all.

During my time off, I celebrated a birthday on Sunday the 21st. My DH had a surprise party after a basketball game a couple of nights before with some friends. He pulled it off completely without me knowing anything about it. My kids even kept the secret!! We went out to eat with my parents on Sunday, and I spent the rest of the day relaxing. I had no voice due to this "crud" I've had since Nov. I have been checked for lots of things and at this point, the doctor thinks it is weather related and hopes it will go away once spring comes!!! Keepin' my fingers crossed. DH and I are going to the Bahamas next week so I am hoping sunshine and lots of little umbrella drinks will cure me!!
I wanted to share some of my birthday goodies with you. DH gave me a diamond journey necklace, which is hard to take a pic of while wearing it. You'll have to take my word for's very pretty. This group of things is from my parents. My dad picked out the bunny. Isn't it cute!! The candle is cinnamon spice and the spray pumpkin bread. Yummy!!
These next goodies are from my friend Ann at A Hole in the Basket Primitives. I just love them both. I'm sure her DH made the shelf. Thanks, Kevin!! She found the pattern for the cross stitch at a thrift store. It is the perfect accent for my Pfaltzgraff. Thanks!!!!! This is how good of a friend I am. Because we are both so busy with running children everywhere, I still have not given her the birthday gift I have for her from clear back mid Nov. I'm feeling really guilty!!

Big news tomorrow is our oldest DD's 16th birthday. She is on the far right in the picture above. Wow, has the time just flown. Seems like just yesterday we came home from the hospital with her and were thinking, ok now what??? Happy birthday, Alex. Love you. She has to wait until we get back from our trip to get her license. It probably seems like torture to her!!

Well, that's about all for now. After vacation, I plan to list a few new spring items on my selling blog. Watch out for that. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
