Did you all have a nice weekend? We had a wonderful weekend! It was actually the first in a VERY long tim we did not have ANY plans on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, it was my dear 10 year old daughter's birthday and went to some dear friends' 50th Wedding Anniversary. We told her while we were there (jokingly) that the party was going to be her celebration and that we weren't going to have a separate cake....that the cake there was going to be her Birthday cake. :) I did not ask, but our DEAR friends, did some speaking at the party and right before they served the cake they graciously called her up to the front and everyone at the party sang her Happy birthday! She was beaming. I wish I had my camera then! :)

This week, has A LOT happening here - so be sure to come back every day!!! :) Tomorrow, we will kick off the Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop, so be sure to come back!



PS - We did get my BIRTHDAY GIRL a small Birthday cake. I didn't want a huge cake here all week for me to look at and drool over! 

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!!!
