Happy Birthday.....

.....to me. My dh surprised me with this Willow Tree set called Sisters By Heart this morning. It's perfect! I saw it in a Hallmark store a few months ago & mentioned that I thought it was pretty back then, but I didn't think my husband would have even remembered me showing it to him, much less getting it for me for my 46th birthday.

I also received a card in the mail from my Dad & I just got to talk to my Mom on the phone :) That really made my birthday special! Especially when the first thing she said to me was "Happy Birthday"! She felt bad because she couldn't get me a card, but I assured her that it was okay. We talked for about 20 minutes & it was so good to hear her voice! The perfect present!

Jim took off from work today to spend my birthday with me, but we ended up sleeping in way too late, so now I need to get my butt in gear. Gotta go renew my license plate & then we'll just be going out to dinner tonight.

Have a great weekend!

Benita -Happy Happy Birthday!
How sweet of hubby to remember the Sisters Willow tree set. What a wonderful thing. I know it was difficult to get through making the layout of your sister and brother in law, but hopefully it was a bit theraputic for you. HUGS to you.
Glad you had fun at the old Pine Knob. That is always a great place to go for a good time.Have a great weekend!
