This past Sunday was a stitch-in at the shop. The "girls" surprised me with a lovely card and a gift certificate to Vera Bradley. Yippee!!! I get to go shopping again. I think I will be in the market for a new "Fall" bag, so I hope to find one within the next few weeks. Thanks, my friends, you are the inspiration to my needle!
Even though today is the actual birthday, I had to work all day so my husband took me out for dinner yesterday at Wildfire in Oak Brook. I ordered the Prime Rib. Yummy! They also had an excellent Shrimp Lobster Bisque. After dinner, we split a small half-slice of cheesecake. What was I thinking not bringing my camera??! The cheesecake had a veil of raspberry sauce and a smattering of fresh berries. Delish!
Today at the shop I was kept pretty busy so the day went by very quickly. When I finally got home, this is the sight that greeted me.
That husband of mine is a keeper! Too cute. Then the next sight was this.
Inside the packages were some silly things like mints and gum (that I love), a new mouse for my laptop, a hands-free holder for my phone while in the car and a new Cuisinart blender/chopper. Now before you get too worked up over the fact that my DH gave me a practical gift for my birthday, I need to let you know that he did not want to get me the Cuisinart. I begged him for it. He wanted to get me jewelry or something equally wonderful, but I really, really wanted the new chopper! It is now washed and waiting for our next meal. Here is a stock photo.
My DH also got this cute, little New York Cheesecake. It was quite yummy. I'll have to remember this tiny cake the next time I have a craving for just a small slice.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes today. It was a very fun day!
