Friday was Joe's birthday, yesterday was mine. On Friday I arranged for about 20 of his favourite people in the world to meet us at a restaurant for dinner. It was a complete surprise for him. Actually the biggest surprise of the whole night was that I didn't blab about it ahead of time. We had a GREAT night. We spent 4 hours laughing and chatting in the restaurant. I bet the waitresses were sooo glad to see us leave, but it was sooo much fun!!!
Yesterday was my birthday. I woke up in the morning to some really neat goodies (new scissors, a yarn holder, some yummy cookies and some new shears). After I opened my goodies there was a card (he told me to open it last) and 4 other notes taped to some really pretty silk flowers. I think you can read the notes from the picture, but it essentially outlined the day. Oh, and he had printer issues, that's why the colours are so odd.
Essentially the day went like this:
1. Breakfast at the Canadian casino buffet.
2. Gambling at the American casino (way better than the Canadian).
4. Dinner out. We didn't actually make it to dinner because at dinnertime we were STILL full from breakfast. We'll do that later this week.
It was the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now here's the crafty part of it. I woke up at 6:00 am which is when Joe gave me the stuff, but he had hardly slept so he went back to sleep until 8:45. While he was sleeping I made these:
A new wristlet and change purse. The change purse is a little different than the zillions I've been making, it has a zipper on the outside as well. I love it!!! The wristlet, well, that's another story. I think my pattern has shrunk a little every time I've made one and it was really too small. But still cute.
Unfortunately the fact that it was my birthday and the fact that I was toting a cute little wristlet didn't make me lucky. But I didn't spend much money at the casino and we had a TON of fun!!!!!!!
Thanks Joe xoxoxo
