A day full of Births

Well this weekend it was RAINING BABIES. Yesterday two of my friends both gave birth to their long awaited new miracles. Nalo was born to Onikka and Brice at 5am yesterday followed up by the most beautiful little girl Grace born to my best friend from high school Jamie and her hubs Aaron at 7:30. Congrats to both of you :)

And today is the day of my birth....all those 30 so long ago years. I haven't cried yet. Don't think I will but heck ya never know LOL! John was a sweetie and put together a surprise birthday party for me last night where my fam was waiting at McMenamin's for dinner. Had a couple of very tasty pear martinis and Zoe got me...well she wants to tell herself...i got her a sewing machine!!! So my Mother's Day gift turned into a Birthday gift LOL . I am really excited to sit down and figure out how the heck to use it. I see some baby blankets in my future for all these new babies we have around here ;)

And CHA this week! WOO HOOO! I can't wait to see all the fun things that are coming out and happening during this week. I know Making Memories has a killer blog party every CHA and I camp out there all day long. And at inspireME, I have a feeling there shall be a NEW CHA PRODUCT giveaway while Brandin and Terri are out of town!! Just a hunch ;) So make sure to stop by the site, see the SNEAK PEEKS and be on the look out for a giveaway.

Gonna finish up my coffee and get this day going.

Happy Birthday, Dena. You don't look a day over 20 so don't sweat the years.

A SEWING MACHINE! I see much stitching on layouts in your future. And many more crafty items - like aprons.
