Yesterday I turned 27!
I really can't believe it!
I was blessed with some wonderful birthday gifts!

Alan got me this Candlewick punch bowl. (Not this exact one, but one
just like it). Mine was ordered off Ebay and
hasn't come in the mail yet.
He also got me this antique beaded garland!
I love it!
Paige, Zack and the boys got me this cute tray!
It is very similar to the red and white polka dot one
I already have. Mom mentioned that
peanut-butter balls would be very pretty on it because
of the brown and lime green.

Paige also got me this little glass dome.
It is so adorable!
The present sitting inside it was from Mom and Dad.
They got me some black bling-bling earrings.

Mom and Dad also got me this Cheese ball platter and knife.

Love the black and white and the "S"!
Lauren gave me this fun purse. I love it!

And she also gave me this cute little hand towel.
The saying is perfect!
And look at Santa holding Rudolph!
I don't know what I would do without my friends!

Alan's Grandma gave me a Hobby Lobby gift card.
I still haven't spent it.

My in-laws gave me this book! I have been collecting these each year since 2006. It has great decorating ideas and recipes!

Please pray that our house will sell soon!

It has been about 2 months since anyone has looked at it.

Please pray that God will prepare a place for us when

our house does sell!

your birthday gifts look so fun! I especially love the platters. I'm glad you had a great day!

I am an idiot. We talked for like 2 hours yesterday and I never told you Happy Birthday. You should hate me, but you won't because you know that 1-I love you dearly and 2-I have been very wrapped up in some other fun news in my life lately. LOVE YOU! Happy belated 27th!

Happy Birthday!!

I think we have VERY similar taste.... its eerie sometimes when I read your blog! I think, "Oh that IS cute!" Like the Candlewick Imperial... I'm obsessed with it. I have a beautiful Candlewick Imperial bowl that I'm itching to find some siblings for... consider yourself blessed because that stuff is hard to find and isn't cheap!

AND I have almost the exact same purse... different animal print though. I'll post it on my blog just for kicks. :)
