25 Days left of my Birthday MONTH celebration, are you still celebrating with me? (I hope you are!!!)
"Treats for the Sweet" ~ How perfect for ME!
25 days left...
sniff...I wish this could last forever
I must admit though, I used to have a "Pre-Birthday MONTH", a "Birthday MONTH", and a "Post-Birthday MONTH" but Thad put his foot down and made me stop that stuff a couple of years ago. I think he got mad because my "Pre-Birthday MONTH" shadowed his birthday in September...poor thing. (eyes rolling)
He just gets soooo jealous ;)
October is ALL about me. I do not share this month with any other member of my family, can you believe that? Not my parents, not my husband nor my child, not my brothers nor my sisters, not my in-laws...no one. So therefore, October is MINE...for the whole month!
I am so
spoiled blanketed in l-o-v-e,
don't you think?
If you have any doubt about it, just look at this gorgeous throw above. I love the black and gold (so elegant) and I love me some fleur de lis!!!!
My sweet sister Penny (the one with the new house) and my sweet little niece Payton surprised me with this the night of my birthday. Plus, they took me out for dinner where we laughed...and cried...and laughed some more. It did wonders to get together and take the edge off of dealing with Dad. I enjoyed sitting and talking with Payton about her upcoming Homecoming, (did I mention that she made Homecoming Court? yay!) and I secretly enjoyed wondering if Penny was really going to eat ALL of those fajitas she ordered! My big butt ordered a salad while her size 2 butt ordered the whole fajita meal! Yes, we laughed and it was fun and No, she didn't eat it all. Now, Penny and Payton are probably reading this and laughing again, I hope so! It just makes me realize that we need to do this more often.
Even though October may not be your birthday month, go out and enjoy a moment with someone special...it really does do the soul some good! Trust me on that one!!!
Thank you for my beautiful blanket (filled with love) and thank you all for sharing in my birthday MONTH excitement!!!
ps...Thad is REALLY jealous of my blanket...what am I going to do with him? After all, he got a chocolate chip birthday cake and I DID NOT!
Well, let me mention that I ate 95% of it. Sorry Thad.
