All those who made my birthday special.

I'm sorry I've been such a blog slacker this week. I meant to blog all about the stuff I want to share with you, and get around to visit all my favorite ladies...but it's just been so crazy! Bookworm and Hubby had scout camp on Mon-Wednesday, Hubby had to go get new x-rays, and make sure his wrist is healing up properly, had a Christmas in July girls night on Saturday with the YW presidency and some other fab ladies in the ward, and we still don't have a car!

But, the crazy, busy life is being good to me. Even though I had to spend my birthday away from my family, and we have some crazy stuff goin' on, my birthday was one of the best I can remember. Part of the reason for that is the wonderful ladies I have met in bloggy-land who have made me feel so loved! I can't believe you guys!

So Wednesday, before I left for camp, Hubby gathered the family around and the kids gave me their cards they had made for me, and I got a few presents that Hubby knew I could really use (yeah...we're being practical this year!) THEN hubby hands me this PILE of stuff that he's been getting in our P.O. Box we have for our business. Apparently my dear friend Tanielle has been being a little sneaky, and conspired to have some birthday love sent my way!

I still can't believe how thoughtful you all are! I mean I can, but it truly humbles me.
Vivienne, my funny, funny friend from The V Spot has been on the look out for monogrammed "X" stuff, ever since I complained about not finding any here. Being unable to locate any "X" merchandise, she took matters into her own hands and made this for me! Isn't it fabulous? I LOVE it...and look at the adorable card she made too!


Look...more "X" stuff! MiMi, another oh so hilarious one made me this ca-ute mini clip board for helping me keep track of my life...let's hope it works...cuz I'm like the most un-organized person on the planet! Thanks MiMi...I love it!

My sweet, sweet friend Sare, one of the first fabulous people I met through my blog, sent me 2 adorable, musical cards. One to say "sorry you're having a tough time...cheer up!" And one with wonderful birthday wishes! Thank you Sare!

That adorable Jen at Harried Mom of Four (I can sooo relate! 4 is crazy!) sent me the sweetest card...and it has sparkles! You all know how I love sparkly things! PLUS it's PINK! I sooo love PINK! Thanks Jen!


My soccer lovin' sista Becca at The Texas Darlings sent me birthday wishes and a gift card to treat myself to something yummie! You all know how I love to eat, so I can't wait to treat myself! Thanks Becca!
I also got so many sweet Birthday wishes through comments on my blog, and every single one of them brightened my day! Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone...I love you!

I just wanted to share this little gift that my sweet Cowgirl made up on her very own! It's the New Kids on The Block! Clever or what? She made them for me since I had to miss my concert! Isn't she sweet?


This is my card from Tanielle.





Look at all the fun polka-dotty, stripey love she gave me! I am one spoiled girl!


I seriously cannot get over how kind you all are. I love my bloggy friends! Thanks for making this birthday so special, I'll never forget it! I promise to be by soon, because I really miss reading what's up with you all!

How fun Xazmin! I just want you to know that I was working on something special to send for your big day, but had a project disaster. So I am sending it and it will be late (obviously), but it is one of the resin pendants that I made. I am sorry it was not there for your b-day!

XOXO
