Guess who turned a year older? It's my sweet hub. Last night me and the kids stayed up late waiting for him to come home from work to wish him a Happy Birthday. He was surprised!
That explains why this morning we woke up very late. Me and girl went to buy the smallest cake we could find. (son was still zzzz) The best part of birthdays - the presents!
I read in hubs blog he pined for a Spider Spud. So I got him exactly what he wanted. I haven't bought anything from Toys R Us for a long time so I was quite shocked by how pricey toys are. It's ridiculous. Isn't there a law against such high prices? I almost bought myself a doll - the one you get to dress up the hair? But it cost as much as what I sell my big bag. So I wisely put it back.
Girl got dad a necklace with superman pendant. A nice hot pink.
Son got him a wallet.
The wallet came in a very nice box. There was a bonus in the box - a penknife! I don't understand the penknife. Is it something a man needs? Under what circumstances would it come in useful? Oh, guess who gets the BOX? Moi, moi, moi! Happy Birthday to me already.
And my birthday came early yesterday. A package came all the way from Indiana. It's from Suzee who blogs at Applehead Threads. She sent me some bits and bobs. Thank you Suzee. I was very surprised.
One of the items she sent - a cardholder. I had been using my dirty pigs cardholder but it ran out of room. So I'll use hers to house the frequently used cards. It has a lot of room. Notice how there are too many reward cards nowadays? Imagine needing a separate wallet for them. In my case, I need 2.
Suzee is also an Etsy seller. She has some ready made items for sale in her shop. Go check her out HERE. Ask her about custom items too.
Tomorrow maybe we'll go to Outback so the birthday boy could get his fill of meat. He had to work on his birthday! I'll see you in a while.
