Thank you for all the b-day wishes! We actually did most of our celebrating yesterday. We left the kids at Grandma and Grandpa's, and were stunned at how nice and peaceful it was in the car. The dear hubby then took me out to a movie. We saw Expendables 2, full of all those wonderful action-movie hunks. Yummy! We did a little shopping: he got some shoes and I got a new purse and wallet. And then...we went out to dinner at Port Edward, where I had, get this...lobster bisque, prime rib, lobster tail, and for dessert, Bananas Foster. Wow!!!
The fun doesn't end there! Today I got a card from the hubby, and a present full of stitchy stuff. Woo hoo! Now, let me explain to you how to get the perfect stitchy birthday presents for yourselves. First you go to your LNS and get all the stuff you want, then hand the bag and some wrapping paper to your DH. He can probably handle the rest, and he'll likely be thankful that you received what you really wanted without his having to figure it out. Tee hee!
But, that's not all! I received the best birthday card ever!! My dear, sweet Jo from Serendipitous Stitching sent me my very first cross-stitched birthday card, and is it beautiful! It has beads, metallics, and variegated threads. Swoon! Jo said that the blonde mermaid is supposed to be me, and the dark-haired one is her. I love that!! Thank you so much, sweet Jo!
And, if that weren't enough, I received some fabric on Friday from Leslie's Under the Sea Fabrics, and they are absolutely exquisite! They came out even prettier than I pictured.
