They're not wrinkles, they're laugh lines!
Anyway, we feasted on the ribs and corn drenched in butter(yum) outside on her deck, while our kids ate pizza inside. Then for dessert........a chocolate torte cake.
Ah.....life is sooooo good.
But there's more....Presents! Check out my stash from Amy!
All very fun gifts. Included, are as follows. A personal knitting journal, two "Slave to the Needles" comic books, (very cute) A Happy Birthday Girlfriend mini quotes book, 2 packs of ultra cool stitch holders, A very fun (stickwithit) Diva matchbook of sticky notes, and a gorgeous hank of Sari Silk (recycled yarn) from Nepal. tee-hee-hee. I am such a spoiled diva! I also received a very adorable card which didn't make it into the picture as it was on display on my butler pantry from the moment I got home.
Okay, so that was my celebratory birthday lunch. Another birthday down, what a great day! Now I can sit back, and soak it all in. Nope not yet, there's more. My DH came home from work with beautiful flowers and a marble cake. We were originally planning to go out for dinner, but I decided to pass since my tummy was still smiling from Amy's ribs. No dinner for me, but a piece of the cake topped me off for the evening.
My children gave me this, along with a $20.00 gift card to Dunn Bros for Stitch 'n Bitch.
Yes, and that is the sweater I am going to knit.
My husband surprised me with this super advanced ultra mini digital camera with which I took most of these pictures with.
My mom and dad sent me this.
and this beautiful personalized throw blanket.
Laura sent this gorgeous book of friendship quotes. It must have taken her forever to make it. The card she made me is on the left and the friendship scrapbook is on the right. Yep, that's Laura and I in the picture behind.
and my god-daughter Audrey, sent me this heavenly bath set from The Body Shoppe, wrapped in the loveliest and most unique of boxes.
The party is now over. but I am left feeling so loved and so blessed. Enough to last me a lifetime. (or in the very least, another year.) Thanks guys, for all the fun things.....and especially all of the time and effort you put into making my day so completely wonderful. It was a great birthday. I am 35! Yay! and in the words of Lauren Bacall I shall leave you with......."I am not a has-been. I'm a will be."
P.S. Vote For Pedro.....and your wildest dreams will come true.
