Birthday spoils








Yesterday was my birthday. I spent the day shopping with my friend Kristina at some outlet malls and having lunch at a quaint little cafe in a small town nearby. We had a great day! She spoiled me with a bucketload of cupcake goodies! She knows just what I like! She's been collecting this stuff for months. There was the cupcake container filled with a cupcake scrubby and dishcloths, cupcake ribbon, a cupcake magnet, 12 x 12 cupcake paper, cupcake candles, and even a cupcake bracelet and necklace she bought off of Etsy. The cupcake jewelry is scented to smell like cupcakes!

Then my husband came home with flowers, a birthday balloon and dove chocolates. Mmmm. He wanted me to tell him what to get me but I really prefer going out and buying my own birthday presents. I'm picky about my clothes, jewelry, etc. so why put him through it? My husband and 3 kids took me out to El Loro's Mexican restaurant. Mexican food is my favorite! I finished up the night watching American Idol with my daughter. It was a great day!

What marvelous birthday gifts...do you recall where you got that cupcake ribbon? I hear Michael's craft stores carry it but I never find it there and a manager told me they have none in their warehouse!
