I had a fabulous birthday yesterday, just what I needed! :) My mom made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and so did I - and we Skyped and had cake together. hee hee Helped with the homesickness, it really did. Jeremy bought me this gorgeous Pandora bracelet, which I have wanted for a while now (but men need PRODDING, gentle hints don't seem to work - LOL):
Then Jeremy & the kids took me out to dinner at Cattlemen's Steakhouse, it was delicious - here I am turning 41:
It's not so bad. :) You're only as young as you feel, right? I definitely still feel young. :) My kids help with that - they made me the sweetest cards and commented that "Dad said we should go buy you a card, but we knew you'd rather have one that we made!" They were right. Trevor's said "happy birthday to the coolest hippie ever." How awesome is that, that my 19-year-old son thinks I'm cool? I think it's pretty great. I love my kids. :)
I actually got pretty spoiled - Jeremy's mom got me a gift certificate to my favorite local spa (can you say MASSAGE???), my sister got me a Barnes & Noble gift certificate so I finally bought myself a Nook (regular Nook with Glowlight), and my friend and fellow Dilly Beans DT member Glo sent me a GORGEOUS card with the most perfect stamp - it's for the back of ATC's and it's got an angel on it! That was just one of the sweetest and most thoughtful things for her to do - I was thrilled! :) You know how they say "it's the thought that counts"? Well, it really is. Thank you, Glo! :)
So anyway - I have a couple of cards to share today, my first one is for the:
And here's my take on it:
My sweet kitty is from Saturated Canary, DP is from My Mind's Eye, ribbon is from SU! Sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers. Flower & button are from my stash.
I used Beach Rosie from the DigiStamp Boutique, DP is from My Mind's Eye and sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers.
