Happy birthday to me!

It was my birthday longer ago than it feels like. Honestly it felt like it just flew by but I had an amazing day that I just have to share with you.

I know there are many people in my life who think of me and care about me and who try to go out of their way to make me smile but it's quite heart warming when all those people tell you on the same day that you are in their thoughts. I was truly touched that all of my friends and family, that are now spread all across this great little world, took the time to send me a little love.

About a week before my birthday, when I was checking my mail, I found a little slip that said I had a package. Huh... I thought I wonder what it is... I was pretty sure I hadn't ordered any yarn (I'm back on the yarn diet :::pout:::) so I went and collected the box and got excited when I saw it was from my dad and step mom. I ran up stairs and stared at it. Should I open it? Should I wait? My birthday wasn't for another week. A WEEK! I can't wait that long and I'm an adult. There are down sided to being an adult, one of them being paying an electric bill but there are upsides too. The upsides include having ice cream before dinner (let's be honest I've been doing that since I was like 15) wearing your new clothes as soon as you get them and opening presents whenever you feel like it! The hubbs was out of town so I wasn't going to wait for him to get home and I opened it right away.

Here is what I found:

A drop spindle, a HUGE ball of roving and a starbucks card. I nearly passed out with excitement and immediately called my dad and step mom to thank them profusely. I'll show you my spinning progress soon

About a day before my birthday I received another gift. From my mom. : D She knew that I had been umm rather addicted to Bed Bath & Beyond lately (hey when you live with out it and Target for 3 years then we'll talk) and had been hoarding my coupons and wanting some goodies so she sent me the means to get not only a new coffee maker (woot woot!) but also some of the new flexi baking dishes so I could make this lasagna.

This has to be the best lasagna I have made! Ok the only lasagna I ever made but it was pretty darn good!

The hubbs spoiled me as he does everyday. Although I specifically remember a steakhouse being involved. yum.

Then on my birthday it's self not only did my family call and sing to me but I my facebook and ravelry group blew up with messages of birthday wishes! Charmaine even sent me a knitting pattern from my wish list!!! I'm so excited to start it! Jocelyn left me sweet notes on every media site I'm on and Kundi (as always) made sure I knew I was on the top of her mind... (there was lots of purple involved). And Amanda! She gave me a tatting needle that her grandmother passed down to her. I only hope I conveyed to her how much that it means to me.

Thank you everyone for a wonderful birthday. I'm still smiling!
