I am one lucky girl. Really, I am. I have such a wonderful, generous family and the sweetest friends (local and cyber) a girl could ask for.
I just got back from a 2.5 hour lunch with my knitting group buddies Jenni, Brynne, Sarah, and Catherine. Jenni
and her DD gave me the frozen hot chocolate set, which my DD's informed me that I will be sharing with them this afternoon. Sarah gifted me with the oh so cute monogrammed notecards. And Brynne
, of Samus
fame, made me the miniature sweater card. Isn't it the cutest thing? I've been showing it off to everyone I know. Thanks ladies! I had a ball. Catherine
, I hope you get your AC fixed ASAP.
My more than amazing Knitty
nt me some serious birthday love as well. For your viewing pleasure, I give you "Think Pink." From upper L-R: A sweet b-day card complete with pink themed recipes for pink peppercorn filets and pink martinis, birthday stitch markers, two hanks of Berroco Soft Twist(I've never used it. It is SOO soft), a Lantern Moon silk taffeta tote (perfect for knitting while standing up), ANOTHER set of Peace Fleece handpainted needles, Stash tea in Wild Raspberry, a bar of the most yummy soap I have every smelled, Bad Girl postcards to lure my friends into a little retail therapy, and a precious hand-knit butterfly broach.
My SP is a very busy lady, so I truly appreciate the time she put into putting this package together. THANKS SP!!
Oh, I almost forgot. She sent the most cheerful color of pink fingernail polish. My "long overdue for a pedicure" feet do not do it justice.
Finally, my MIL and FIL sent me two books that have been on my knitting wishlist for some time.
Mr. Lovie and the girls will be taking me out to dinner this evening. I've heard through the grapevine (aka loose-lipped daughters) that there will be chocolate cake with buttercreme frosting at some point.
It's good to be me today.
