Oh What Fun...

So my friend Marmie threw a birthday party for me and our friend Sharla who shares the same birthday month. It was a lovely time with the girls...The spread was wonderful with sandwiches, salad, fruit, chips, lemon aid and Kahlua cake. Oh yum, it was so moist and good. It was so sweet of them to celebrate our birthdays with us. The girls gave out gifts too...and who doesn't like gifts? I got a great book called Living By God's Promises written by Joel R. Beeke & James A. La Belle. Looks really good. Can't wait to have a quiet moment to read it. I also got a gift card to Target....I got NEW Sock Monkey Slippers with it...

I love wearing slippers so much that my old monkey slippers flattened out and started ripping at the toes...Guess that's what happens when you wear them out for five years...almost 6 years actually, yet they sure did hold up well. I saw these and had to get them...Aren't they cute?

Several of the gals came together and got each of us Hobby Lobby Gift cards...Woot Woot. Here is what I got with my gift card....A storage box for all my piles of pictures, that don't make it in an album...Much needed and will be put to good use. It will be perfect to get everything organized.
I just need a few more and I'll be good to go.

I got this fun world map for home schooling...Just need a frame later down the line but will look really cute with all our school room decor. Prayfully we will have a school room when we move, if not though...
It will surely find a place that will work.

I couldn't pass up this cute vintage 30's~40's inspired fabric...
which will make it into some projects...
It's adorable...Don't you think?

Lastly I got the clock I have been eyeing for some time, but never had the $MOOLA$ to get. Great thing is it was on sale too. I love it. It is retro~ vintage inspired in red metal. A perfect companion for my kitchen. I am blessed to have these wonderful ladies in my life, they sure did spoil me something rotten. I had a lot of fun shopping, I must admit. It was a good birthday, one I will treasure with me for ever.
Happy Wednesday to you all.
