Birthday Celebration--Part Two

Here is how my birthday morning started. My good stitching bud Jill--Purple Peacock greeted me at my door at 8 am with this--my favorite Starbucks drink a vanilla bean creme frappuccino.
Did I mention I love these drinks!!!!


So with this Jill and I settled in to do some serious stitching.


Then Jill stole a couple of projects from mu stash with the help of my daughter Kelsey. She stitched these up for me. I just love them. The one on the left is LHN's Virtue Sampler. I already found a frame in my stash for it. The other piece is Heart In Hand's Friendship Endures. It is finished off so cute.

Jill also took me to one of my favorite places to eat for lunch--Chili's. We had some good food and a fun time. Even got a free Ice Cream and Brownie Sundae for my birthday!! We left there stuffed. Thanks so much Jill for the fun day.


As promised here is the finished fob from the Shepherd's Bush kit that I received from Cathy B.
This is the front side. I turned out really cute. Thanks again Cathy.


Here is the backside of the fob.


My daughter Chastity brought me this wonderful Coconut Cupcake from a little place called--A piece of Cake. It was very yummy!!


One of my favorite cakes is from Sam's club. So my daughter Kelsey with the help of Jill got me this cake. I so love these cakes.

After my day with Jill three of our children came over and we had Five Guys for supper and watched Survivor--because that is what we do every Wednesday night.

I also had many phone calls, texts, emails and comments from my blog followers wishing me a Happy Birthday.

I had a great day. I am very blessed to have the great family and friends I have.

I still have some celebrating to do on Saturday with my good bud Lori and a lunch date next week with another bud Jackie. So I will be posting some more birthday fun.

I did mention that my birthday goes on--probably more than I deserve.

Thanks again to everyone who wished me a happy birthday.

Joan, it looks like you got to 'do your birthday up right!'

That's the way birthdays should be, filled with favorite things.

Happy Birthday!
