Birthday Goodies

How are you all liking this extra hour of daylight in the evening?
I love it but I'll enjoy it even more when it's warm enough to actually be outside in the evening and not be so chilly.
Won't be long....just a little longer here in our neck of the woods.

Well, I have to tell you that this weekend was my 38th birthday and
I don't think I have ever had as many happy birthday wishes as I did on Sunday.
I can thank Facebook for that!
My email was filled with wishes from my Facebook friends and family.
That's not a bad thing. It just surprised me because I'm hardly ever on Facebook.

I just can't seem to squeeze enough time in my day to get on there. I'm doing good to be able to keep up with my family life, homeschooling and blogging in a days worth of time. (and look my blogging has slacked off in the past few months too!) Yikes!

Anyways, to all who wished me happy birthday whether via blog, phone, in person or FB....THANK YOU!

Now do you want to see some of my birthday goodies?

First of all the Easter Bunny wreath pictured above is from my "bestest" :) friend in the whole wide world. Misty and I met in grade school and have continued our friendship all these years throughout all the ups and downs life has thrown to us. I can't imagine life without her or the phone cord that keeps us connected daily. *GRIN*

These goodies are from my hubby and kids. There is a punched tin candle tart warmer, a punched tin nightlight, John Marshall High School t-shirt (high school that I graduated from and my oldest son now attends), plus 3 music CD's. (Journey, Miranda Lambert and Poison)

Boy do those 2 titles make me feel old. Isn't is funny how the music we like really dates us?
This is a close-up of the tart warmer. I love the little church with the word HOPE underneath it.
My daughter Katie felt that she needed to give me something all on her own so she decided since she had two stuffed kitties she would give me one of them along with a dollar bill. sweet of her!

I also got a mini blender to use with my new diet program (that one of these days I'll tell you about) and a gift card to Target and check out the little wooden block.
Mom and I went shopping at a few craft stores here in town and we found a bunch of these little blocks. They all had different and unusual sayings on them. She picked this one up for me.

Now my one wish for each and every birthday is that I don't have to cook or do dishes on that day.
So hubby went out and got breakfast and brought it home to us and since it was Sunday, the day that we all gather at my parents for dinner, I didn't have to cook that either.
Mom & Dad ordered my favorite pizza (taco) for everyone and hubby and son made my favorite Oatmeal Cake for dessert.

An enjoyable birthday it was!

Well it's getting late and I'm sleepy so I think I'll hit the sack.
Be sure to stop back as I've got several recipes to share this week as well as a science project that we are working on.

I was a HUGE Poison fan, LOL, I'm still in love with brett michaels too;) I love the bunny wreath and that tart warmer, very nice!!! Sorry I missed posting on FB, our internet and phone were out for 2 days. I have a blender just like that, LOL, I use it with my slimfast when I'm using it, I did read up on that plan you are on but just don't think I could stick with the no snacking, I'm SO bad with that:( Glad you had a great birthday, love all you got!
