Happy Birthday to Moi~
A lovely surprise Sunday dinner my Beloved prepared for me with surprise guests! My husband made his homemade Italian sauce, meatballs, sausage and pasta! And a DQ IceCream cake... :)
Here's my Beloved with our precious Jonny, youngest grandson from NC. He drove in with my son and his mommy late Saturday evening - I had no idea they were coming.
My best package to arrive! :)
I also received some lovely gifts that arrived early...from my best blogging buds~
This lovely little box filled with the most precious gifts...it was a combo Happy V'day & birthday combined. My "Claudie" sent this all the way from Plantagenet, Canada to brighten my day...and then sent another package a few weeks later. Strict rules were applied to the second package - I couldn't open till this morning... :) since today is my actual 56 b'day!
This divine teacup below I rec'd will now be called WENDY, in honor of my "DD" friend that sent her to me all the way from Canada. I have the bestest friends in the whole world! xoxo She'll look so sweet in my curio cabinet joining the rest of the girls~ ;)
Arriving yesterday for my Birthday dinner, my daughter Kim and her family, my son Jon and his family, my sister Becky and her daughter... And more presents...yippee! xoxo R.S. choco covered cherries & a Nicholas Sparks book, "The Lucky One".
My favorite gift was having all my grandchildren (Tyler 5, Cate 3, and Jonny almost 2) together with us...and having this snapshot taken with all three just made my day. They are all like speeding lightening these days and most of the pics don't show their faces as a result of that. ;) This one at least you can see all of our eyes! Happy B'day to MOI! ;) My oldest son Jon is in the pic too.
More gifts to open??? Yup, and they were more of my favorites...
A Signature Facial and Swedish Massage from my Beloved with a nice green 100$ bill to spend on whatever I want. sighhhhhhh.... :)
Cards just make my heart sing...these were from both my sons...and I hung on each word that were written in them. My youngest son, Peter, sent the blue one. He's in TX awaiting back surgery and couldn't be with us. He wrote so many lovely things in his card...and that just warmed my heart as if it were a million $'s.
So this morning...I got to open this... :) finally...
And here it looked so pretty inside when I opened it...a teency cupcake magnet...how cute! How Claudie... ;)
Then this lovely little card inside...with lovely words to match from Claudie's heart to mine.
And then this inside that lovely wrapped package... I took several photos trying my best to capture her beauty... A hand made bracelet Claudie sent me from artist, LuLu Kellogg. It's made with London Blue Glass, white copper, Swarovski Crystals, and a sterling silver artists tag. It's an original LuLu bracelet
Isn't she just so lovely? I'm wearing it today on my outing to my day of Beauty at the near by Winery/Spa.
My sister Becky gave me this lovely Spa Sampler package at the Chateau Elan nearby. So today I'm getting a real nice treat, facial, massage, hot stone pedicure, hand dipped in wax, and lunch with my sister.
And then in just four weeks, my daughter is taking me to see Les Miserables at the theater in Atlanta. Thanks Kim! :) My daughter is just the sweetest & thoughtful one...I love spending time alone with her. This will be great to look forward to~
Have to run now and get ready for my day of beauty, so...just wanted to say Merci to all my lovely friends and family for their thoughtful gifts, cards, and well wishes that have made my Birthday already spectacular before it's even begun!
Merci, Merci, and Merci...
