Oh, it hasn't even been a week since my birthday and I have SO much to share with you!!!! I have many many gifts here, some of which I haven't even opened yet! My birthday MONTH is so exciting...I just loooove October!
Let's start with this box...this big box I received last week from my sister Karen. Yep...if you've been following me for any amount of time, this is my sister from Texas who spoils me and sends me the sweetest surprises...just because. Well, just because she loves me!!! :) In this case, it's my "Birthday Month Box" so let's see what's inside shall we???
Ooooh, looks like MANY presents in here...yay! Sorry about the lighting...the weather was kind of gloomy outside, but that doesn't stop the excitement happening here!
All together, there are 7 presents to open! I am soooo spoiled!!! I did tell you that I'm 39 right? When it comes to opening presents, I feel like I'm 8 years old!!! I just loooove my birthday!
Wow, Karen is so organized...she has each bag numbered in order of opening them, look at this!
"Open on your birthday"
Number One and Two: "Open 1st"
Number Three: "Keep Track"
Number Four: "Travel to Silver Bella"
Number Five: "To Entertain"
Number Six: "Our Roots, Mama picked 1000's of these"
Number Seven: "Halloween"
Cute huh? She's so creative and fun!!!!
I have a confession to make. I don't know where you were on my birthday so I opened the gift that was labeled "Open on your birthday" without you. I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself! ;)
Here were the two goodies inside...
This crown made me feel like a Queen...look at all the detail!
Ready for me...the birthday queen:
One problem...the birthday queen wasn't ready for a photo op. I'll wait until hubby and I take advantage of one of those birthday rain checks we owe ourselves...I'll be looking a little better once I'm all fixed up ;)
And how much do you just loooove this birthday linen?
I have the perfect spot in my kitchen for the whole month of October. And if Thad is a good boy, I might share it with him next year since his birthday is in September (3 days before mine). Maybe ;)
Oh and don't worry, after I post this I will go and cut off the tag...no Minnie Pearl business over here! haha
Note that is not a little skunk on the floor...that is our little girl Oreo. She's a miniature Pomeranian and she turned 6 in September. So maybe, just maybe I might put this birthday linen out early next year so we can all enjoy it!
As for my 21 year old son Brett, he doesn't like his birthday when it comes around in July. He never did...not even as a child. (I think it was my singing him the birthday song that devastated him and scarred him for life).
Well friends, there are 6 more presents from Karen to open. I decided that I will leave them where they are and open them later so we will ALL share in the anticipation. After all, we have all month long to celebrate and I have many other lovely gifts that I've already opened and would still like to share with you.
Thanks again for sharing my birthday MONTH with me!!!!!
Thank you Karen...I love it! I really cannot wait to dig into the other ones...I'm putting my willpower to the test!!!
