How Many Candles?!!!

There's been lots of excitement around here lately. I got to enjoy seeing my dear friend Diane from Kentucky last week for the first time in 2 years. We shopped, ate, talked, laughed, { ALL the girlie stuff!} and then had to say goodbye on friday morning. It was so much FUN!!!

~ Don't stay away so long this time Diane!

Phoebe and her Auntie Diane were fast friends. I had to make sure my little spotted baby was still here when the car was being loaded to head back to Kentucky!Sunday evening Scott and I went to dinner to celebrate my birthday. We actually used a gift certificate that some friends gave us for our 25th anniversary back in December. Scott had to have stomach surgery in November, so his tummy wasn't up to a nice dinner out just then. We sure had a great time on Sunday though. {What do ya think of my new dress? It's my $7.00 find from the second hand shop up the street from me!}.

Today was my birthday. And, well, we decided to skip the whole candle bit {45 candles might have been enough for a bonfire! And though I might look like a windbag, I didn't want to try to blow so many little flames out.}

Oh! Remember the new purse Bridget and Tinoy gave me? Jose really likes it too. I had to tell him pretty much the same thing I told my sister, "GET UP OFF MY BAG!".
Speaking of my sister, this is the first time I've spent a birthday without her. She called first thing this morning from Milwaukee and we had a bit of a cry together. I really miss her. We've never lived so far apart. We're used to being in and out of each others daily lives. But 4 hours isn't so far away. I'll be making a trip ASAP!

Hope you're all happy and healthy and enjoying some summer sunshine. As for me and Gabby ~
we're having a swinging good time!

Hi Sweet Friend, And a very Happy Belated Birthday to you!! Looks like it was a special time for a special lady. OMG that little sweetie on your purse is just too much! You could enter that one in a photo contest!!

I know what you mean about your sis being 4 hours away! Mine is 6 hours away, but I make the trip often to see her! What a blessing to have great sisters, huh? She is my only sis, and I have 4 brothers, so I really cherish her!!

Love and hugs to you sweetie!! Love having you back in blogland!!

Thanks for making my Maddy smile!

Glad to hear you had a FAB time with friends and family on and around your birthday dear! Happy Birthday! You're still a "young pup". I'm only a few years behind you. That pic of Jose in your bad is too cute. He's got good taste! And as usual, Gabby is too adorable!

Have a FAB day dear!

Danette thought about you all day, yesterday! Love your great find, you put a whole new meaning to"pretty in pink"! I love finding great deals at thrift stores, so much more fun to get a good deal than to grab something new off the rack! Your family photos are so good, Diane looks like a fun loving girl, I bet you 2 had a blast! Oh, can Gabby get any more adorable! Love you! Kathy

I love the picture where your little dog is giving you kisses. I believe that you can tell a lot about people by the way they treat their pets..and I can tell that you are a wonderful friend!
