Birthday MONTH: Day 24

This is certainly a lazy Sunday for me as it's the first Sunday that I can remember being home since...well, I don't remember when!!!

I'm about to watch the Saints whip up on the Cleveland Browns while I fold and save a mountain of clean clothes.

The Man plans on cooking a gumbo, I'm still in my jammies and Life is wonderful!

I think it it's time for me (us) to open a couple of birthday presents this morning as the pile of presents in my library are still waiting for me!!!! Yay!!!!

Thank you Barbara!!!!

(I know she can't hear me. She's on a trip right now but she'll read this when she gets back...one day!)

Another gift that was waiting for me to open was for me AND The Man. His birthday is September 28th...3 days before mine so this was to the BOTH of us from our dear friends,

Hello Presidente' Margaritas...The Man and I are coming!!!!

We need to plan a date-night soon :)

Thank you Tom & Vicki!!!!

So these boxes below will still be waiting for me and I'll open them one by one... (i'm so excited)

I think I'm going to open the BIG box at the bottom next. It's from my sister Karen in Texas and she SPOILS THE HECK OUT OF ME (all year long). Last year during my Birthday MONTH, I think it took me 8 days to post all what she sent me! Not kidding!!!! :)))

I think I really need to open it soon as

I only have 7 days left of my Birthday MONTH :)))

See ya tomorrow!

IMPORTANT BREAKING NEWS:

For those of you who were in the Charming Heart Swap recently hosted by Sarah of The Gypsy Mermaid...

Sarah and I were supposed to meet this weekend for a girl's day and I was going to receive my heart and charms from my surprise partner (which I found out today is Tracy Suzanne).

Unfortunately, Sarah was in an automobile accident late Friday evening. SHE IS FINE but her little Mustang is not. It was towed away at the scene and her little heart is broken.

I'm thanking God that she is OKAY!!!!!! Her Mustang can be fixed or replaced, however SHE could never be replaced!!!!  :)

I'm going to visit Sarah tomorrow (if she's up for company) and hopefully post about the swap soon. Until then, I'm sure she'd love to hear from you~

Thanks for the info on Sarah, I just sent her an email. I hope you are able to see your charms and pillow one day. I think you are going to have to make a trip to the country.

Okay, so I do not even know what your actual birthday is unless your mother was in labor for a full 31 days.

I am loving that armoire in the background of gifts 1000-1003.

BTW, My emails are coming back as spam again and I have to send you an important one. Sandy and I are already planning a spring girl's trip so you just better start getting the memo's girl!

So sorry to hear about Sarah's car, but happy she is okay. Jodie, you make B-days fun! Open the big one! Open the big one! LOL!

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

I'm glad that Sarah is doing fine!
Hopefully you're o.k. too, girl since you didn't do birthday month day 25. Maybe there was something so exciting in the big package that kept you busy all the day?
BIG HUGS,
Julia

Vicki said...

You are the most patient woman I know...tell me the truth...you took pics of the presents as they arrived then tore into them immediately. Now you are just pretending to open them?! lol You are a saint. I'm like a four year old when it comes to packages.

Jodie,
I'm sorry to hear about Sarah, give her a big hug for me, (but don't hurt her). Now, stop taunting me. You have got to get that duck some air soon, he'll smother. Love you,
Lisa Marie
