Birthday wishes


I had a wonderful birthday yesterday, and thank you for all the comments on facebook, calls, cards, etc. I really felt special and loved. I told Richard that all I really wanted was to have a few hours alone to go shopping and wander the mall and spend my birthday money. He was so wonderful and took half the day off to watch the kids so I could do just that! I had been looking forward to it for weeks and it was fabulous. What a treat! I shopped for 4 hours and probably could have gone for another 4, but ran out of money! I also had a friend take me to lunch and then Richard and I went to see a late showing of Eclipse! Yay! I just had to post this picture because Daniel was so sweet and made me this necklace and earrings out of aluminum foil. He thought I could put the foil through my ears, but I just hooked them on my other earrings. So cute, huh?

I bet if you pushed really hard you'd be able to get the tin foil through your holes. I bet it would feel great.

Isn't it funny how when we were younger we wanted to be with all our friends on our birthday and now that we're older we just want some time alone?
I'm glad you had such a great day!

Oh my gosh! Foil jewelry! I would have never thought of that, but it definitely adds a little bling bling! :) Glad you had such a great day!! xoxoxo
