Birthday MONTH: Day 6

Please forgive me for my tardiness and lack of a post today...

I PLAYED MOST OF THE DAY!!!!

I took off of work, um...let me re-phrase that.

The Man let me have the afternoon off today!!!  I took full advantage of it and headed for my favorite store in the whole wide world!!!!

The sales are great this week so I did some Christmas shopping...presents and home decor! Christmas is 40% & 50% off this week! I know, it's not even Halloween yet but...that's how I roll. I'm always one step ahead of the game (or I try to be) 'cause I NEVER pay full price for anything!!!!

Speaking of fun, see that BIG cardboard box behind all the bags?

Yep...that's another birthday gift that came in the mail yesterday! I added it to my stack of presents that I've yet to open :)

It's my birthday MONTH and I'm still having so much fun! Monday night, The Man took me out on a dinner date for some Mexican food and Tuesday night, my girlfriends took me out for Pizza! We had a wonderful time laughing and talking. We enjoyed ourselves so much that a couple of hours had passed and we looked around...there was no one left in the restaurant except us! The waitresses were cleaning the floors and waiting for us to leave! I love my crazy girlfriends and I always look forward to a girl's night out!!!  :)

FYI...

I'm opening the mystery box tomorrow...Lucky Day #7!!!

See ya tomorrow!

ps...anybody want to help me unload????

*****

oh while I have you here, I have to tell you something funny...

 Tammy of T's Daily Treasures left me a comment a couple of days ago. She said that she's predicting that this month will be all about ME, ME, ME!  Well, I hate to break it to you all...but it will be! So if you're sick of hearing about my birthday, then this blog is not the place to be until November 1st. Furthermore, I'll be really honest with you...November is my post-birthday month so I cannot promise you anything at that time either ;)

I'm just begging you that you'll come back to me!!!!

Better yet...please don't EVER leave me!!!!

Do I sound like a desperate 40 year old friend?

Come on. Stick around. I know you're as nosey as I am!

Good Golly Miss Molly I wanna see what is in that box. I would have never made it this long with at least shaking it a little. But, I have also been known to peel the tape back and take a peek...shhhh don't tell anyone....

Sandy Navarro said...

No Lisa, Thad NEEDS to get a job at Hobby Lobby so Mrs. LeJeune can get an employee discount all day every day; I recognize those bags even though I have to go out of state to bring one home!!

And I guess our "deal" will have to wait until after tomorrow's post, birthday girl!

Love ya!

Robin Sanchez said...

Happy B Day! Hobby Lobby is my favorite store also. I go there when I need therapy!

Tawnya said...

Oh, you really know how to hurt me. I recently moved from Glendale, Az to and smaller town in Idaho and there isn't a HOBBY LOBBY HERE!!! The back of your car gave me goose bumps!

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Hobby Lobby stuff? I'll be right over to help you unpack, then you can help me pack everything into my suitcases and I take the goodies to Germany ;-).
Taking you out for Mexican food and giving you the afternoon off, the Man is a keeper!!!
Sleep well, sweet Jodie and have fun on Birthday month day #7 :-)!
Big hugs,
Julia

I think you should have a contest- guess how many HL bags are in the back of your SUV- my guess is 14- but I have no idea what's in them- are you going to show us?

For goodness sakes, OPEN THAT BOX! lol You are a very patient woman. I'm not sure I could have waited this long to dive into all those fun presents from creative friends. I'm actually making my list for HL today. We finally got one in Orlando and this girl could not be happier! Happy Bday Month!

Claudia said...

This reminds me that I haven't been to Hobby Lobby in a long while - have to get my butt over there.

Linda said...

I want your kind of Birthday month - mine is next month remember. ;)

Robin Thomas said...

My birthday is this month but I definately do not get remembered to the extent you do. On the other hand, all I need is birthday cake and I am good. So I will live vicariously through your October Birthday Daze!
