First off, I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for their wonderfully sweet Birthday wishes!!
I actually was in a Fabulous mood yesterday.
I spent so much time dreading 40 but once it was actually here, I was fine!!
I had such an amazing day yesterday!!
How could I not when the day started off with finding Birthday presents on my front porch!!! :)
Okay, they weren't Really Birthday Presents, but I called them that any way.
I participated in Prim Pals, Fall Swap.
I was so lucky to be partnered with Lorna.
What an amazing and very talented lady she is!!
Here is what she sent me for our Fall Swap.
Amazing prim pumpkins, an adorable kitty with crow and pumpkin, a wooden candle holder and 4 candles for it, a wonderful ditty bag with a crow and dries inside.
And last but certainly not least, an adorable crescent moon make-do!!
Don’t you just LOVE it!!
Thank you so much Lorna!!
I truly loved it all!!
I am still looking for the perfect spot for some of the goodies but I do have some of them in there new spots!
I hung the ditty bag in my DR…
Also in the DR I put my Kitty, crescent moon and my pumpkins!!
This was not the only package waiting for me yesterday morning.
I was also the very lucky winner of Prim Pals 1st Giveaway!!
Here is what I received yesterday…
I won an amazing prim prairie doll, Pumpkin Spice room spray, a wooden wall box and wooden candle rack with candles!!
Oh TJ!! You did an amazing job!!
More Amazing Goodies for me to LOVE!!!!
Thank you so very much!!
My entire home is filled with the aroma of Pumpkin Spice, my new wooden wall box is hanging in my DR, and my new doll is sitting proudly in my living room.
Still looking for the perfect spot for my candle holder.
You will also notice in the above picture the black cabinet.
I moved this into the dreaded dinning room corner.
I had this in my Mud Room but I decided until I could afford to by another large cabinet, it was going in here!!
It looks so much better than what I had before.
The other displays were way too small for this space.
This equals out the weight of the room. (That statement makes Hubby say… What?…. But you all know what I mean!!)
Here are some additional photos of the DR and some tweaking that was done Before and After my “Birthday Presents”.
Yesterday, I took my daughter to mall.
Yes, I am like a lot of you…. NOT a fan of the mall.
But with as much as I work it is hard to find time to let her go shop.
So that is what we did.
We actually went to exchange 2 things at AE.
Well, 4 stores and 12 shopping bags Later… we finally left. LOL!!
And what did I buy myself out of those 12 bags…. ????
When we left the mall we headed over to get something to eat and my daughter laughed saying…
Mom, aren't you glad I LET you take me shopping for your birthday!! LOL!! (Yes, she was joking around.)
Actually, yes I was. We had such a great time.
We laughed and talked and really enjoyed ourselves.
In fact on the way home my 15 year old daughter said….
You know, I really had a good time.
WHAT!!! Be still my heart!!
Was that a complement??
Well, needless to say…. That melted my heart and made my evening. :)
Then we came walking in the back door and I found a birthday cake and THIS….
Hubby snuck over to Mt. Vernon while we were gone and picked up my Abe, that I had The Olde Homestead holding for me.
I was so excited to see him standing there when I came in!!
Here are some more photos of my fabulous Prim Abe!!
So yes, I had a pretty darn GREAT Birthday yesterday!!
Maybe 40 isn't that bad after all!!! LOL!! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!!
