Birthday MONTH: Day 21



I have to tell you a little something today. I really REALLY admire those of you who can post consistently everyday. I must admit, this has been quite a challenge for me. Certainly FUN, but a real challenge! HOW do you people find the time??? Plus, get around to visiting everyone too? Ya'll must be "Super Bloggers" ~ that's all there is to it.

Jodie R. LeJeune, SB.

Although it looks good, I cannot add the Super Blogger credential behind my name. I'll tip my hat to all of you who can! ;)

I have 10 days left to open presents and there are about 7 presents still sitting here for me (us) to open! We better get busy and quit playing around with race cars, flea finds and magazines!!! (But wasn't it fun?)

Next on the agenda for today...let's open gift number 5 from my sister Karen...

It reads: "To Entertain, Cooking with the Past...


My goodness...look how pretty she has it wrapped! I love this rose tissue paper! And of course, she always has a vintage inspired card (& chocolate)...she loves me so! ;)

Okay, we are all going to get a laugh here...look at what she wrote inside! Ain't she funny? That should put a smile on anyone's face!

Oh dear...I love it! I absolutely adore it!

I hung the apron on my birdcage...

but then I thought, let me go see if Sophie would like to try it on...

Hmpf! I think I just lost my apron. She said that if I should even think about taking it off of her, she's going to slap me. You think? That little form has such an attitude, she thinks I have to share everything! (eyes rolling here)


She even hid every match in the house. For those of you who follow me, you KNOW what I'm talking about. For those of you who are lost, or at least think that I've lost my mind, you can read about little Miss Sophie here.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday and I'll be here tomorrow!!!

Well, Miss Sophie and I had a good visit going back thru your studio tour. I took more time and enjoyed it sooooo much. Sorry Jodie, I think your beautiful new apron is a goner. Miss Sophie told me she'd feel "naked" without it!
Have a wonderful day, dear!

Lori said...

what a gorgeous apron!!! you are really getting spoiled for your birthday month Jodie!!!

LiLi M. said...

I think Miss Sophie is right, I wouldn't give it back to you either! She wants to give it back on one condition: you have to give her an official studio guide uniform of course!


Miss Sophie looks fab in the apron! What a lovely gift from your sister!

Karen said...

WATCH IT Miss Jodie! Me and Sophie . . . we gotta stick together! And now that she has an apron too, well . . . don't even say the words "curbside" or "Matches".
You just leave her lookin' gorgeous and all will be well.
I'd hug you but I have no arms - Lillian.

Oh what a lovely apron for you and Miss Sophie. Don't fight over it though, I have a feeling I know who would win! And Jodie, you ARE a super blogger. It may not be every day, but your posts are just the best. Well, maybe because YOU are just the best!
Have a wonderful day,
Sharon :-)

Sophie looks so special in that beautiful apron! When you stop posting every day of the month, a lot of folks out there will have symptoms of withdrawal! HA! It's been so much fun with your birthday month. All the best, Tammy

OK, Ms. Sophie!
I should have thought of you! (When is your b-day???)

You can wear it but do remember to share it with Ms. Jodie...okay???

Well, I will have to find another special apron for Ms. Jodie...

I know, I didn't surprise you, but you got so many surprises this month... I will mail it to you whenever I can!!! (I do have it already matter of fact!!!)

AND.... YES!!!!
Congrats on your article and pictures published in Belle Armoire magazine!!!!
I am so very happy for you and so very proud to have you in our family!!!!

And yes, Sandra E. is in the same magazine... yall are 'page sisters'!!!! Excuse m-oire!!!(spelling) 0:-)

Who would have thought when just a little over a year ago, you mentioned her to me, and I said, 'who???' Wow, now she is leaving sweet congrats to you!!!

(Don't go floating off somewhere Jodie with the big head...Ms. Sophie keep her anchored now!)

Hugs and Kisses and much love sent daily~~~

Sares said...

Sge looks very elegant in your beautiful new apron, no wonder she doesn't want to take it off!

Linda said...

Spoiled indeed ~ what a marvelous apron!

There's no way I could ever be an SB either. I normally write a few times a week at best, because honestly there's no time for more.

Looking forward to seeing what you have tomorrow. :)

Jane said...

First Oreo and now Ms. Sophie....everyone wants to get in on your birthday month!!! I love the apron....the colors and the ruffles are fabulous.
Happy birthday day 21!!

Hi Jodie,
Your sister is the bestest! You never should have shown it to Sophie though, I see she already has all of your necklaces.
I don't know how the great bloggers do it either, I can barely come up with anything interesting for two posts a week. I'll never earn the SB behind my name unless I start making stuff up.

I wouldn't take the apron off either. Love it! And listen here. I can't blog daily. I can't keep up with my sidebar or the folks I follow on a daily basis. I often feel lost in what is going on, due to slacking off on reading. But, you've got it. Where does one find the time??? Happy Birthday Month! ~Mindy

Rochelle said...

That apron is simply adorable!! Love it!!

Rose Brier Studio said...

What a great apron! I love it. I want to make one just like it -- only where do I find the time?

I blogged 3 days in a row and was so proud of myself. This birthday month is impressive! I don't know how you do it. I can hardly read all the posts, let alone create them!

Sandi said...

That apron is so fine. Oh, especially on Miss Sophie. Saw the fleur de lis pendant on her also. She is a very needy little lady.
