But that is not the point of this post.
No really though, he really can't keep surprises from me and I really like getting presents, so it's a win-win.
So, I received my first gifts from Chris last Wednesday night, then spent Thursday evening, Friday, and Saturday in Dallas with Tia, Tracy, and Holley. The trip (and I'll do a post about it later) wasn't to celebrate my birthday, but the timing was nice.
I love it! Most of you probably don't know that I have this crazy attraction to serving dishes... I don't know why, but I love them! I love having cute dishes to serve guests and take to parties, even though I really don't do either one that often.
At work, Husband sent me a beautiful autumn bouquet of flowers. It's always so much fun to get things like that at work! My co-workers also helped me celebrate with cupcakes (purple and sparkly!) and sweet cards.
I came home from work to find little sticky notes all over the house. They each had a little birthday message for me. Then I got to open more presents (woot!). I had been eyeballing this circle cutter (for scrapbooking) for a while. Husband bought me the cutter and all the accessories! I can't wait to really use it (I played with it for a minute last night, and so far I love it!)
After a nice dinner and numerous cards and calls from friends and family, I went to bed with a smile on my heart. Thanks, everyone!
