The Best Birthday Ever....

Warning this post has lots of pictures!!!!

I have had the best birthday ever!!!!! Absolutely without a doubt the very best from beginning to end!!!!! And I'm proud to say that I turned 50 this day!!!! I was a bit uneasy earlier this month but it has been great!!!! I started the day by sleeping in and then completed my 4th Pilates workout for the week !!!!!! Then it was errands one of which was to pick up my new Elan Lapstand..... Sorry the picture is dark but I took it quickly to add to this post! I have a scroll rod lapframe but am using Qsnaps more so this lapstand will definitely help! I just wish I had gotten to stitch today..... Next I went to Red Rock Overlook again and it was so peaceful and once again I felt my sister there and thanked her for being the best sister ever!!!! Then it was home and reading while I waited for DH to great home with pizza and an ice cream cake! I started Ken Follet's "Pillars of The earth" and am enthralled by it!!!!!! We were going to go out to dinner but I just wanted to hang by the pool and spa. Lastly is the present DH got for me.......An Alice in Wonderland Teapot with sugar and creamer and mugs.... and and and . I can't tell you how long I've been looking and wanting this teapot!!!! It's from Stash Tea. I have it on display on our dining room table along with the new table runner I found on sale at Williams and Sonoma!!! I told you it was a good day!!!!! I also picked up some organic oatmeal pancake and wafffle mix for when my BF and goddaughter visit later in the week after Disneyland!!!! It looks really good!!!

Lastly is the pair of Pink Flamingos I picked up for the front lawn!!!!! We'll put them out tomorrow!
I'm sure the neighbors will love them!!!!!

I am grateful for a great day spent the way I wanted too........

  11. Dear Juls, Happy 50th!!! You are such a wonderful, young 50 yo, nobody would ever guess! I love your teapot collection to bits, and your lap frame, too. Wish I could have been there so we could have had a birthday party for you. I'm sorry to be the last to say, "Happy Birthday, Fairy Goddess Girl!!"
    Hugs, Deb
