My husband's family is VERY small, unlike my own family. Matter of fact, he only has two sisters so they've become an awesome addition to the three wonderful sisters that I have of my own, making a total of 5! And I must not forget my two brother's wives too...where is this story going???? excuse my ADD...
Back to the birthday post. This wonderful grouping of birthday goodies above is from Thad's family and I must say...
they KNOW ME WELL :)))
Belinda knows I love everything Paris...she gave me a wonderful set of Paris book boxes! Aren't they beautiful?
Polli knows I love me some Chinese food...hence the "New Peking" gift card for a dinner for two. I'm debating though...should I enjoy it twice or should I share and bring The Man with me?
(let's vote on that one ;)
And, last but not least...his Mother supplied me with my garage sale $$$ for the weekend!!!! :)))
If I have any $$$ left, I'll take it to Washington this weekend and spend it at the Antique School House Fair this Friday, Saturday and Sunday!!!
(the web site is showing the wrong dates, it should be the 8th, 9th, & 10th)
This is a fabulous place (year-round) as this beautiful old two story school house and the old gymnasium are FULL of dealer booths inside!
But this coming weekend, even the grounds around the outside will be full of dealer tents too. It's becoming one of the largest antique fairs in the area. It's just awesome!
I always find some GREAT deals...
and unfortunately some that I SO regret passing up...
I posted about it before here so if you're in the area of Washington, Louisiana (off of I-49) ... this is a "must not miss" weekend!
And as an added bonus, for ONCE we are enjoying Autumn-like weather here in Louisiana. There isn't any rain in the forecast, the humidity is low and the temperatures are in the low 70's. It's just perfect :))) It even makes all of us Cajuns a little frisky!!!! ;)
If you are coming, let me know...I'd love to have a snack with you at the little School House Cafe!!!!! (The pie is absolutely DELISH!!) Heck, it'll even be MY treat! (limit...um...let's say 20! haha)
don't fret...you have 4 more days to think about it ;)
And about my birthday comments...you guys are TOO funny!
Yes...I CAN admit it ... I'm spoiled. Very spoiled.
Like I've always said, I have the best family and friends in whole world!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!
Update on the cookie cake in the last post:
Sister Penny's cookie cake was (note that I'm saying "was") delicious! I have no idea what happened to the photo and why I had so much trouble with the post :(
