Queen For The Day

I got to be queen for the day because it's my BIRTHDAY today. Honestly, today is one of my best birthdays ever.

When I was growing up, I did not celebrate my birthdays because there were so many of us. The one time there was an acknowledgement of my birthday was when I was 16 and I came home from school one day to find plastered all over my flat clues to a treasure. The clues were written by my younger brother who was in afternoon school. I followed the clues and eventually found my birthday present. It was a watch my younger brother and mom had bought for me. I have such clear recollection of that day because it was such a surprise and my brother put in a lot of effort to get me to find the present.
Since I married, I've had many birthday celebrations with me hubs and kids.
This morning me hubs surprised me with little cakes.
Me and hubs. In my family, no one can resist putting the rabbit ears when photo-taking is on.
My son gave me a HANDMADE potpourri which he made in school.
I hung it on my sewing machine so I can smell the lavender when I sew.
My girl got me a necklace pendant. Once we were shopping, I saw some necklace pendants in a Japanese accessories shop and I told her I would love to buy one when it was on sale. Last weekend when my girl was out with my SIL, she must have somehow found her way to the shop. Thanks to my SIL for helping her pay for it. Can you tell that there is kimono fabric in the pendant?
I told me hubs I wanted a black metal necklace which would not make my skin itch because I have sensitive skin. He delivered! In my mind, I thought he would get me one which will reach my navel. But this is good too. I have many pendants which do not have chains. So this will come in really handy and I think black chain is a good look for me.
We went to Swensen's and I had All-Day breakfast.
My son had penne and prawns......
plus soup that came in a bread bowl.
My girl had satay pizza. Dad ate everyone's leftovers.
This came free. It's tomatoes on top of bread.
I had mango fantasy (on account of my sore throat). Yep, I definitely put back all the weight I lost at Iluma.

When I came back home I received a surprise gift. I had entered in a giveaway on my blog friend, Jenny's "From The Yellow House". No, I did not win but she decided to give me the prize as a birthday present. If you want to see what I received, please go here.

You know, the day before I wondered if I would get lucky on my birthday. Me mom told me I was a lucky baby because she won money when I was born. So I bought Toto. Just now I checked the result and guess what? I won a small amount of money!!!

Told you I was queen for the day. Hope you guys had a great day too
