I'm enjoying a lovely day - can't help it when I'm with family and away from snow!! Dad made pancakes for breakfast, Mom took us out for lunch at Red Robin (love their burgers), visited my sister Tami and her hubby this afternoon, then we had a heart shaped pizza for dinner. Here I am with my birthday pizza:
Mom also made smoothies with a bag of frozen fruit pureed with a cup of white wine. They were a bit thick so we added some 7-Up. Delish! Then the neighbor stopped by with some chocolate covered strawberries she made. Yummy!
Mom decided she wasn't giving Valentine cards this year but I did get a lovely birthday card. Also received a fabulous package from my friend Heather Maria - just have to share this:
I was so excited to get one of Heather's Hero Hostess Blog Hop cards - so gorgeous in real life, you have no idea - all that stitching, amazing!! Lots of fun gems, ribbon and stamped images, including some hearts and musical notes. Love the stamps and embossing folder too - I already stamped out and colored one of the village scenes. Unfortunately, it doesn't look as great as the label in the photo above - oh well... I used watercolor pencils and I have a limited number here. Maybe with Copics at home I'll get a better result and share it sometime. Thanks again for making my day, Heather!
Sister Kari made me a pretty white and silver bracelet; she and Tami must've had a jewelry making day when she was here in January. Thanks Kari! I wore it to the neighborhood dinner the other night:
They had a Valentine theme, including a Barbershop Quartet "Time Was", to sing for us. Appropriate for me, eh? Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Thanks for stopping!!
