Thank you for all the positive feedback on the blouse! I love, love, love it. And, I’m a French cuff convert!
If you’ve picked up on my neuroses the last week, it’s because I had the pleasure of turning 33 this week. Between that and my 15 year high school reunion this weekend (not going) I’ve been a little reflective. I always think I want my birthday to pass quietly, then am so humbled and elated when my family and friends remember. So, I was super thrilled on Tuesday when I got this gift from the ever thoughtful Christina (her mom and I share a birthday!):
Check the bottom left hand corner. Yep, that’s an April 1976 Burda magazine!! I was on the phone with Trena when I opened the package and SCREAMED in her ear. I also spent last year’s birthday with Christina and Trena!
My parents and boss also surprised me with some beautiful flowers at work. Daisies, lilies and tulips are my favorite flowers 🙂 My office smells like a garden. It’s fantastic. There was also lemon cake from the girls at work. I once got a chocolate cake three years in a row at a job. I don’t care for chocolate cake. And they knew because every year they would ask why I only ate a little bit of cake. But, that’s what my boss liked and that’s what he ordered every year. Every. Year. There was even a chocolate cake when I left. It’s a running joke now with my former co-workers.
And the man formerly known as the Cop dropped of two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. We are no longer involved. But, he knows I LOVE Krispy Kreme (I spent half my life in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee), and all three stores within 30 minutes drive closed in the last year. I dunno where these came from and I think the effort was pretty remarkable. But, I smell sabotage folks. I’m figuring he doesn’t like that I’ve gotten back down to my dating weight.
So, this weekend: Sew up dress sloper for class and make up summer dress for a friend!
