A Day with the Girls

Wow! Even though Tropical Storm Fay has dropped lots of tree limbs, pinecones, and RAIN! Saturday was a fantastic day. For my birthday I told me friend Nadine I didn't want anything but a day with her and Beth stamping, gossip exchange and laughter. So yesterday that is what I got.Beth, Nadine, Stacie(another stamping buddy) spent the day doing just that. It was the best day I have had in weeks. I haven't made anything all summer and I haven't had time to make cards with my friend so it was a Fantabulous day! I didn't make as many cards as I should or could have but we did have a moment of weather excitement when we had a tornado warning! So after the excitement passed we stamped a little more. If my husband wouldn't have killed me I probably wouldn't have gone home til midnight! I enjoy that special time with friends unwinding about the world and laughing! I highly recommend it to all! Have a great wet weekend!

Another Year Older~but what about wiser?

Yesterday was my birthday! Happy 41 to me but am i any wiser than I was 15 years ago? OMG I sure hope so. My husband doesn't know how to keep secrets but he kept a good one this time. I wanted to spend the day with my family and do a birthday meal with them and I made arrangements with my two best friends to spend an afternoon together soon doing what we like to do~stamping and talking. But without me knowing my Honey arranged for my 2 friends and their family to meet up at my house at 7pm to eat cake. OK~he let the cat out of the bag that morning when he came in with 2 10 layer cakes(Chocolate on chocolate and a keylime). No my friends do't have huge families ~ he couldn't decide what everybody would prefer to eat so he bought 2! My Mama came over early in the afternoon to eat cake and wish me Happy Birthday! Then to have my friends and their family that night!Last night as I sat looking around my den at my friends and listening to all the kids playing outside~I realized how truly blessed God has made my life. My Husband, my kids, my mama, and my friends. With those individuals and God on myside ~ I am one of the luckiest people I know. Fifteen years ago, I didn't have all of those people in my life ~I have trully been blessed! So please enjoy some birthday cake!

Please Don't Give Up!

Alright the bells of school have rung or as I like to call them from one of my favorite bands "Hells Bells". I have been absent but it is not just because of school~Lightening zapped my house last week and got computers/modems/printers/tv/more. But I am not complaining we are spending more quality time with each other without passing the remote to the tv or swapping chairs with one another at the computer. School is getting in the swing and I am going to be back and among the techo world soon~I promise to catch up on all of my reading to see how all of you are doing! Peace be with you and I'll be sharing with you soon!
