Happy Birthday to me!

Last weekend we finally got to New Jersey to see our dear, dear friends. We usually see them 5 or 6 times over the summer but this past summer things got bumped around a bit and it has been SEVEN months since we have been together. As it turned out, we were all available this weekend which happened to be my Birthday weekend!! So we headed south to celebrate Christmas and my birthdday Jersey style.


Robbin made this lovely cake for me. I love the ? mark. Might as well keep everyone guessing! They overwhelmed us with presents and goodies. We went out to dinner Friday night and drank lots of wine. Saturday we got together to devour Susie's homemade sauce and stuffed shells and exchange gifts.



We stayed at Susie and Ronnie's house. She is the ultimate hostess with the mostest! Our room had a birthday banner and a lovely little basket with nice smelly soaps and lotions. She is also an unbelieveable cook.
Here I am with my gals, Susie, Robbin and of course, Miss Ellie-the bestest dog in the world!

And here are the hubbies- Susie's Ronnie, my DH, Bob, and Robbin's Vinnie. They basically sat there all afternoon drinking beer and watching music videos.
The weekend passed too quickly !


When I got back home on Sunday, a box had been delivered. I have to say I have THE BEST SISTER IN THE WHOLE WORLD!! My sister, Kathy, who lives in Florida, sent me this gorgeous Coach bag and wallet for the summer. It is the perfect size, perfect handles and perfect color. I would never spend $$$ on a bag like this (cause I gots to buy quilty stuff) but I've lusted over hers for years. So enuf of this SNOW, bring on summer!!!




Snowing again today. But my new saying is

A SNOW DAY IS A SEW DAY!!!
