Happy Birthday to Me!


BIRTHDAY GIRl Sunday, September 12th is my birthday…let’s just say I’m still in my 5th decade.     Today I asked Taylor if she knew how old I was and she said “39”….yeah, I’ll take that!

Last weekend hubby surprised me on our trip out of town with a birthday cake in our room, a dozen chocolate covered strawberries and a fruit and cheese tray.     I ate ALL the strawberries by myself!

After we got back home Saturday from our trip, we went to daughter’s to watch football, then on Sunday we went to son’s to spend some time with our new little grandson.

Here I am loving on this precious angel.   (Notice the address sticker I have on my hand…..McKinley put that on me…..she said it was my bandaid)

My 90 year old mom is taking her “baby” (me), the hubs, and daughter and her family out to eat tomorrow at the restaurant of my choice.     Today mama told me the day I was born was the happiest day of her life!    

This past week has been very busy (as usual).     Thursday evening I went back to son’s house in Birmingham to help with the baby as son was out of town on business.        Before heading home, I stopped by Rhoda’s and visited with her for a little bit, then over to Consigning Interiors to buy a present for myself from hubby.    Ever do that, buy yourself something, then tell him what '”he" bought?     While I was there, I finally got to meet another blogging friend, Elizabeth Ann.     Check out her blog if you get a chance as well as her booth at Consigning Interiors.

So here’s my birthday present….a little baker’s rack that fits in just perfect in this spot in the kitchen.     Even hubby likes it!

I  was so excited with my baker’s rack that I just threw some stuff on it to see how it would look.    Of course, the displays will be subject to change!

I really needed some extra storage for all my white dishes and iron stone and this is perfect.

Also, I’m switching out my chairs in the kitchen to two of my mom’s ladder back chairs and two woven chairs from World Market which I just ordered.

Ya’ll have a great week!

Happy Birthday Judy!

What a precious baby!! Love the baker's've accessorized it nicely!! I've been known to buy my own b-day/Christmas presents (from the Hub's of course). Actually, he would prefer I do that rather than walk around for hours trying to figure out what exactly it is I want. (the girls are good at giving him hints too...LOL)

Enjoy your day with your family!!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Judyyyy....Happy Birthday to youuuu! Believe me, that is much better than me singing it to you.

It was so great meeting you face to face, though brief. The baker's rack looks great. I love how you "dressed" it, very impressed that you just "threw" it together. So glad it made it home okay.

Grandma mode fits you well!

Thanks for the blog and booth shout out!
