Fun birthday gifts...

This past Friday was my birthday and I had a really nice day. Even though I had to work, my day started off perfectly when I spotted a card sitting on my keyboard with a Starbucks gift certificate. To me, that's the perfect gift since I LOVE that place!

Just as I got back from my Starbucks run, Michele stopped in with the prettiest gift bag full of all kinds of really fun scrapbooking supplies, including a Xyron sticker maker!

I had a busy weekend and haven't tried it yet, but I can't wait to give it a try. I'm sure it's filled with possibilities for scrapbooking and card making.

Michele, thank you so much!! This gift was so thoughtful and just perfect for me!

I had just finished opening up the gift from Michele, when Kim stopped in with a big, heavy box wrapped in the cutest laydbug wrapping paper.

Check out this pretty dessert set with an asian flair! It comes with 4 mugs and plates of matching designs, spoons and forks....just perfect for having friends over for coffee and chocolate cake. Any takers?? ;)

Thanks Kim, I love this set and will use it often.

Today, Joe and I were hanging out by the pool at our friend, Linda Marie's house and she gave us the cutest set of his and hers beach towels. Check out the ladybug trim on my towel...too cute!

She also gave me the cutest doggie frame for Addy's & Lucy's photos and an Asian baby doll that's so soft and adorable for Lauren.

Thanks, Linda, for these great gifts and a nice, relaxing day by the pool.
