What can I say!!!


I really enjoyed the birthday attention. Thanks to everyone who posted encouraging me to enjoy indulging in some cake. It totally took any guilt away from having two of these! Thanks mom for baking them. Thanks Cheryl and Jamie for the fun cupcake picks!

We enjoyed ourselves immensely yesterday. Sebastian let us all sleep in like a good boy does on his Momma's birthday. We got to work out and had a friend from our church over for coffee. After the boy's nap we went thrifting for a Polaroid camera. We went home with some other fun things but no camera. The search continues! Then came dinner at the Elephant Bar with my family who we left Sebastian with so we could go watch 'Becoming Jane'. Then cupcakes at home! It was, in all, a terrific day.

I got my swap partner's package that afternoon and it was full of fun goodies from France. Brett bought me Sabrina Ward-Harrison's last book. I got a package from my friend, Katy, full of fun bracelets and a gift card. I felt very celebrated. I tried to only check your comments every few hours but they were all individual gifts themselves. Thanks Brett and Elsie for the shout out.

I've posted a few portfolios here. More to come...
