yesterday was my husband’s 31st birthday
we celebrated first with my ‘rents on cape
with his fam
topped off with cake, a cozy fire and presents at home
his big surprise has yet to arrive
to add to his collection
this was a great
for my first project of the fall
and the yarn
happy birthday, my love!
this little pirate
so i offered to make the cupcakes
a little lass
and gentleman of fortune
a few sketches
while they baked
and a quick iphone pic
before dropping them off
happy birthday, benny!
it’s a BIG one this year for my daddio
appropriately, he and my mum are celebrating somewhere sunny
i hope your day is extra special, sk!
looking forward to yard-work-weekend (his gift from all us kids) when you get back…
“For her birthday she wanted two things: a raspberry cake and a string of pearls.”
“Her vision of heaven involved copious amounts of buttercream frosting.”
“The other guests had long since left but there they were, slowly savoring another piece of cake until the last crumb was gone.”
love love love!
i cannot believe my 29th birthday is a little more than a week away…
i little scary to be entering my last year of my twenties, i have to say.
here is my list of wishes, needs and dreams.
many, not so glamourous, but as a new homeowner
with a to-do list a mile long
this is what is on my mind!
others are truly “in my dreams”
but that’s allowed, right!?!
i know, i know…
a very pathetic blogging-start to november
but, i promise, it was for good reason!
reid turned 30!
and i had been busy busy planning
a surprise party…
i was pretty proud of the invite
seeing it had been quite a few years
since i truly tested my illustrator and photoshop skills!
i finally made pennant flags
i did each word individually so that over the years (and when we have kids)
we can add new names or holidays (“easter” etc…)
a peek at the dessert table
and trumpet cake
(excuse the yet-to-be re-done granny wallpaper)
and the next night
we spent in boston
my very handsome and happy
THIRTY year old husband.
boy, even though february is the shortest month, it sure does feel like it has taken forever to get here!
we’ve been light on snow here in providence this winter, replaced with gloomy grey.
i, for one, am certainly ready for spring.
what a wonderful way to welcome in a new month than with flowers…
and, of course, you can’t beat the trader joe’s
price… just means you can get more to spread around the house!
happy birthday to janet (my mother in law)!
we celebrated tonight with dijon scallops over risotto
and now, i am crawling into a bed made with fresh, clean, tucked-tight sheets.
