In the last few weeks something wonderful has begun for me … I had a milestone birthday. My birthdays have never bothered me, I mean having a birthday sure beats the alternative! So this one I took in stride, after all you only turn 40 once… right? My best girlfriends took great care of me with a progressive dinner that covered all over downtown and ended with a great tribute concert for Johnny Cash! It was AWESOME! We had a great time, we ate, we drank, we laughed, we walked, we rode the trolley, we ate some more, we danced and we laughed even more! I will be forever grateful for their friendships, they mean the world to me!
For my birthday I was blessed with many gifts. I can’t wait for spring to get here, I have lots of new garden tools to put to use! I’ll post pictures of them out in the garden soon! I got a super cool flag tervis tumbler, that will gets lots of use at the neighbor hood parties I sure of that! My husband got me a membership to a local firing range… that might sound odd to some of you, but being the daughter of a police officer, I know my way a range and am a pretty decent shot. I will have a great time with this gift!
My mother-in-law and my dad both sent cash that I put towards the purchase of a new Cricut Expression for the craft room. I am super excited about this gift because I have wanted one for so long, but never could bring myself to send the money out of our budget. After a slight bump in the road with the first one that arrived (had a damaged unit, had to send it back) I had my first opportunity to use it last night. I made several cards in record time! So looking forward to many new projects that will come out of this birthday gift!
