Birthday Blessings

I love you guys! I know there are quite a few of you who visit my blog regularly and I feel fortunate to have you as my bloggin' buddies, family and friends! My birthday was such a blessing and it was because of you. I know my friend Shelley reads my blog and spending the day with her was extra special for me!
She picked me up at 11 and we went to Logan's, my favorite place, for lunch! Here is me with baby Ashton.

He's getting so big! I had the whole afternoon with Ashton yesterday. I held him almost the whole time. I don't get him very often so I figured it was okay to spoil him a little. He had the biggest smiles for me and just cooed and jabbered away! I love babies!
After lunch Shelley and I went shopping. She took me to a craft mall/boutique which had many vendors. Here we are trying on JUMBO sunglasses. (We tucked the tags in so that's what you see in one lens....LOL).
And here is Shelley in the cutest pink hat that would have went with those sunglasses.

We had a fun day. Kevin and Katie took me to dinner at my other favorite place in town- Sonny's BBQ.... when we leave I am going to miss Sonny's and their deep fried corn nuggets! Our waitress was super sweet and sent a big bowl of peach cobbler home with me for my birthday. I was so full it hurt!
I was so fortunate to have received some beautiful birthday cards in the mail from my bloggin' buddies. I usually forget to share my RAKs. I am going to try to get better about that!
Here is a gorgeous pink (my favorite color by the way) creation by Deb! I have to know where you got this bird, Deb! It's SO cool!

I received this sweet Bella card from Rachel. (Rachel, this Bella is SO me!)
Rachel also sent some AWESOME Heidi Swapp rub-on corners that I AM so excited about.
I can't wait to use them!!! LOVE them.... THANK YOU!!

And then I also got a super cool card from Dawn. I would love to have this "Fabulous Flowers" set and Dawn's card makes me want it so much more! Isn't it pretty?

I've got a busy day today. I put so much on hold while doing my month-long birthday Blogabration. It's time to get back to the real world! I've got some cool stuff to share with you though.... I won't forget you guys either.
AND I plan on having a weekly sketch too! I'll post it on Monday. But you'll have the whole week to complete it and when I post the next Monday sketch I'll choose a winner of the previous week's participants. I'll have a little prize along with my sketch card to send to the winner. How's that sound?
Have a FABULOUS weekend, bloggin' buddies!

Sounds like you had a great birthday!! The weekly sketch sounds like a lot of fun. At least now I'll have a week to make one card. I am sooo behind in making cards!

Lori Craig said...

oh I am so glad you had a happy birthday!!! I guess my card didn't make it on time....maybe today. I sent it last week, too. Actually, snort...I was proud of myself for getting in the mailbox in *plenty* of time. That's the USPS hard at work for you...Hey, the next time you and Shelly go to lunch..try Len Berg's in Macon. It is the best authentic southern food ev-vah...Hugs to you, Angel! I hope your weekend is as happy as your birthday was. Love ya, girl!

Angel Wilde said...

Just clearing up one thing.... I have NO grandchildren! hehehe
I have one son who is married, but they don't have kids yet. And I have 2 godbabies that are my best friend's children. I nearly choled when I saw grandson... so thought I'd clear the air....LOL

Maria said...

Hi Angel! Wow, looks like you had a fun time on your birthday! How nice to spend it with friends and family!!!

Your RAKs are very pretty! You deserve such pretty cards.

I received my papers and the awesome card. Thank you! Can't wait to use the paper and your card looked very pretty in the picture but it didn't do it justice, it's fabulous in person!!!

Again, thank you!

Deborah said...

Courtney Fowler said...

Happy happy birthday Angel! I've been out of pocket the last few days so I've missed all of this excitement!

Check out my blog, you've been tagged!

Hi Angel

Sorry I missed your birthday, I was out of the country, catching some Florida sunshine!

It's sounds like you had a wonderful day. Happy belated Birthday from me.

I also wanted to let you know I received the beautiful thank you card you sent me. It was waiting for me when I got back in the early hours of this morning. It's so pretty. Thank you.

I would say it's back to normality now after a week of sunshine and Mickey Mouse but we're having lots of work done on the house starting tomorrow, so life won't be back to normal for at least another week! Ho hum! :-)

Hopefully we'll be back to normal by the weekend.

Thanks again for the lovely card.
