Happy Birthday to me

I was treated to a lovely, relaxing day for my birthday today.  April 24th, in my memory, has generally been a typical, rainy, April sort of day, an “Eeyore” sort of a day, if you will.  Perhaps Tracy of Milkay Photography would be able to let us know if she agrees since it is a special day for her as well!  However, here in Western Mass, the day was about as beautiful as you could ask for in April: sunny and in the low 70’s. 

After walking the dogs this morning, our friend Sherry came over with her dog Angel for a little doggie play date.  This was a cute picture of all 3 dogs that I managed to get with my older daughter looking on:

I received some fun things for gifts as well.  Some of the things included:

Special new sneaks

A new charm for my Pandora bracelet – the sneaks and this charm are from mom, who lives on Cape Cod.  This neat square charm actually has interesting designs on all 4 sides.

Hubby gave me this one, for my “bullish” Taurean ways!  Also from dear hubby, although not a surprise was this:

Its one of those “anti-gravity” recliners.  I spend a good amount of my summer sitting on my deck and reading, so this is the perfect spot for that!  I began my summer activities a bit early today and enjoyed the bountiful sunshine while seated here.

Right now, that same wonderful hubby, is cooking me a delicious steak dinner on the grill you see in the background of the first shot of this post.  See what I mean about not be able to ask for a much nicer day?


  1. Awwwww, sounds like you had a wonderful birthday DAY! GREAT sneaks (go SOX!) and the charms are soooo cute! 🙂

    It was a beautiful sunny day here in Beverly (tho, a little bit cooler than 70F here on the coast) and we spent most of it outside in the garden. We planted EIGHT (!) arborvitae trees which really spruced up the landscape.

    The day ended with a yummy dinner of bacon-wrapped filets of beef and grilled asparagus along with a nice bottle of bubbly! 🙂 Hubby surprised me with our favorite dark chocolate salt caramels for dessert….mmmmmm. We don’t exchange gifts but we do exchange humorous cards which we both, as ususal, got a laugh out of. A tradition we do on our cards is a version of S.W.A.K on the envelope where we make up our own thing and the receiver has to guess! Always hilarious!

    I did “S.W.S.E.Y.A.S.W.A.H.O.M.B.” which translates to: “Sealed with special eighteen year anniversary spit with a hint of morning breath”. (I’m nothing if not honest! 🙂 )

    Thanks for the mention! You are very kind! 🙂

    • Sounds like you had a great day too! I love the “SWAK” idea – that’s funny and cute.

  2. Looks like you had a great day! Did you take the picture of your feet while in your new chair? Looks like you were wicked reclined!

    Wait a minute! No cake??? What the?

    • Of course there was cake! I just forgot to take a picture of it before it was all hacked up! LOL

      Yep, I was about as reclined as I could be in that shot.

  3. The dogs with your daughter is cute. The rest of your b-day sounded nice and comfy.

    Sox fans, eh? No doubt Bruins fans, too. Well, happy belated birthday from a Canadiens and Yankee fan. 🙂

  4. Big Red Sox fan here, Scott! Thanks for the b-day wishes. Despite the baseball team you root for, I will continue to read your blog! 😉

    I don’t really follow any other sports, but if I did, I’d be for the Bruins, Celtics and Patriots!

  5. Well shoot, here I was, wondering when you would update your blog, only to realize TODAY that I never added your blog to my reader!!!

    Happy belated Birthday! Sounds like it was the perfect day 🙂
    Love your bracelet, so pretty!

    • Hmm, blog reader? This sounds like something maybe I should know about? Is it something on the WordPress dashboard?

      • Nope, nothing to do with wordpress, I use google reader.
