[This is an extra long post.]
March is always my favorite month of the year. Why? Because it’s my birthday month, haha! Just kidding.
I haven’t written in a while, so I have lots to share!
This past weekend we headed up to Tahoe for a weekend getaway. It really was a planned surprise early birthday celebration for me. I had no idea, so they definitely pulled it off. We were fortune enough to stay up in a quaint cabin owned by one of my mother’s friends.
First day: We got to our cabin later in the afternoon, so we played for a short time outside. Later that night, I was in for a SURPRISE. Then, we hopped into the steaming hot jacuzzi (Yes, we are crazy for doing this in the snow).
Later that night, I was sooooo surprised. Gloria and Sean wanted me to go grocery shopping with them, so I went. When we got home, the house was decorated with balloons and streamers, and there was a birthday cake lit just for me. ((Thank you to Scott and Jen for all of the pretty decoration)).
Second day: More snow fun, of course! After playing in the snow, we explored Tahoe and went shopping. Yes, I went to the scrapbook store and picked up more stuff, haha! I couldn’t resist. Later that night, we hit up the casino. I don’t really like to gamble, so I played in the arcade.
Third Day: Time to go home. On our way home, the snow started to come down hard. Good thing we left early because later that day, they closed down the freeway.
So, the real question is… did you get anything for your EARLY birthday celebration?! YES, I sure did! I’m so lucky and thrilled with my new presents from you! It’s not even my birthday yet, and I’ve been so spoiled this year.
1) Zutter Bind-it-all: Gosh, I can’t wait to start playing with this! Looks like I’m going to have to make more mini albums!
2) Mikimoto Earrings: Since I can remember, I’ve been in love with the classic look of pearls. I got another pair of pearl earrings to add to the collection! They’re so beautiful, and you really know what I want.
It’s not even my birthday, and I feel so loved. Thank you so much! Now, I really can’t wait for my real birthday!
Finally, on to lots of exciting scrapping updates and TOOTS for me!
To top that, I’m going to be published again! Weeeeeee! I’m so excited about that! I never thought anyone would enjoy my scrapping style, so this is such an accomplishment for me.
