My husband and kids got me the great knife set. I heart it. I know many would not want something that goes in the kitchen for their birthday, but, the truth is, I often ask for that kind of stuff. I haven't really used it yet, because I haven't cooked this week--except for the twin's soup.
The brown and pink make-up bag is from Mandalyn. I can't wait to take it with me on my trip to the mountains in two weeks. The Casting Crown's CD is from Mandalyn's mom. She was so thoughtful to give that to me--it meant a lot. I have a pretty photo album and a mom's planner from two of my most precious friends--one of whom also made me a birthday cake. There is a black and silver necklace and earrings in the front of the picture from my real life bloggy friend, Jenny. I've worn the earrings twice already.
Annie sent me a sweet package filled with goodies. I particularly like the picture/plaque she sent that says "I found love in an awesome God." She sent a pretty bracelet too.
B's aunt sent me the best looking card--if you look in the picture above you will spot Elvis over on the left side. Some people know me so well! It was perfect.
All in all, it was a great day for me. I am going to enjoy this, my last year in the 30's. Where did the time go? Will 40 hit me hard? Stay tuned...
