Happy Birthday! (think of the voice of Frosty the snowman here)



So, yeah, that just happened.
 I had another birthday, last Friday!
Woo Hoo!!
After dealing with so much these last few months,
 I was happy to have added another year under my belt.
 My on-line friends and my real life friends have been so great!
When I got to work a co-worker/friend had left these (from her garden) on my desk.
 Aren't they beautiful??


Then my friend, Robin, brought these great HTF Munki Munki prints and gave them to me!


Hubby came to work and took me out for lunch.  Zingerman's YUM!


When I arrived home these beauties were waiting for me from my friend Cori
 (Who was NOT supposed to buy me anything). 
 We usually celebrate by going out to dinner as her birthday is in July also.


We ordered Chinese for dinner and hubby bought me my favorite desert, Tiramisu.


My daughter, Shelby, took me out for dinner on Thursday to celebrate. 
 My son had the best line about my birthday too. 
 He asked me how could he compete with 7-11? 
"They celebrate your birthday by giving out free Slurpees to everyone!!!"  
LOL

On Saturday we did some running around and 
one of the places we went was the Calder Dairy farm in Carleton.


Geese on parade!  
They were walking in a straight line all by themselves.
  How odd!


What's a trip to the farm without a photo of the Calder cow?


As you saw from my last post I worked on napkins most of the rest of the weekend. 
 I just want those babies finished and out of my life! 
 I have a new project planned, but more about that once I have my fabric pulled.

Other friends from the internet sent cards, a cake, some fabric and some Best Press too.
 (Thanks, Dianne, Windy and Abby!!)   
No gifts from the family though.  
I guess that means I am free to buy whatever I want right? 
 That's how I am taking that one!  
It was a little disappointing if I am being completely honest but 
I guess it is not as exciting to them to celebrate my aging, LOL.  

How do you celebrate your birthday?

Oh Happy Birthday! You were at Calders? That is just a few miles from me! Your lunch at Zingermans looks fabulous. I agree with your son who can complete with 7-11 he should have brought you a slurpee!

It looks like you had lots of fun celebrating but boo on the no gifts part. Sometimes lately I find things that I really want and just buy it for myself and tell hubs that he is off the hook that year. It works for both of us since then he doesn't have to come up with an idea and then go shop for it.
