Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday! I am 34 years young today. Although to be honest, I don't feel a day over 25! Things haven't been so great lately, but I'm going to use today as a starting point for good things to come!

So what did I purchase when I went on my run to the LNS in New Orleans? I bought the Letter M by Nora Corbett and Tigerlily of Nora's Pixie Couture collection. I bought all the materials for Tigerlily and will start that one WHEN I finish Holly! One at a time!!! LOL Or at least that is what I tell myself! I am toying with the idea of doing all the pixies in the collection. Has anyone seen the new ones just released? I just might have to buy those too!

On Sunday, I had lunch with two old friends from high school, Joy and Sarah. Joy lives here in town and I see her often but Sarah lives in Houston and is now a mom of 2! So it is very rare that we get together. It was fantastic to see her. It's always like we've never been apart from each other. We can always just pick right up from where we left off! Her two girls are adorable! Eden is 2 1/2 and talks and talks. She is absoluletly the sweetest thing! Zoe is 7 months old. Didn't get to spend to much time with her as she napped through the whole lunch, which means she was quiet and thus a very good baby!

I also saw the movie Wolverine on Sunday with Joy. All I can say is that Hugh Jackman is one very sexy man!!! If you liked the X-men movies, you will like this one!

Today, my actual birthday, I didn't do very much. To be honest, it was just a normal day off. I did do some shopping and indulged myself at the bookstore and Ulta. I picked up the book that the series True Blood is based on, Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. I've only seen the 1st 3 episodes of the series so I'm hoping to enjoy the book. I had hamburgers with my dad at the house and then some birthday cake. Then I did my dad's laundry! LOL! My mom has been out of town for a while now and well, with all the renovations my dad is doing to the house, things are not being done!

While I was at the house, I just had to take pictures of some flowers from my Dad's garden. I think they are just absolutely beautiful!

On a side note, the verdict has come in about the car. It seems that my brake lights were not going off and thus drained the battery. My dad and a friend of his pried out the brake light switch and are hoping to replace it this week. But while digging around in the car this weekend, my Dad also found that my radiator is cracked! Oh yay! So the final verdict is: time to buy a new car! Soon!

Sounds like you had a great lunch.

I had a look at the pixie collection after reading your last post, they are so pretty. I really would love to do them all too.

Congrats on your birthday!!! Looks like you bought some nice stash for your birthday. This is always fun if you can buy some nice things for your birthday. My birthday is on Saturday and I ordered 2 HAED patterns for my birthday ;)

Happy Birthday!
That Charlaine Harris series is very good. In fact better than the show (though I read the books first so I might be biased). I hope you like it!

Well Happy Birthday! Great Mira purchases--love the TigerLily. Awesome floral pics too. Car problems are so frustrating to deal with. I know all too well!

Happy birthday.
Your friends kids are cute.
You bought some great stash.
Enjoy stitching.
Your WIPs are also coming along well.
Sorry to hear about the car.

Happy belated's my birthday on May 25 too!!! I'm just a few years ahead of you though! Sounds like a nice day for you sharing with your friend and then helping your dad out. I've been tempted to get the *N* and *M* since those are my initials. I haven't caved yet as I just signed up for the new Chatelaine fairy/dragonfly design that starts in Sept.
